How to Improve Estrogen Release with Binaural Beats?

What are Binaural Beats?

Binaural beats are the sensations perceived by your brain when you listen through headphones to two coherent sounds with somewhat similar frequencies. One sound is introduced to one ear, while the second sound is simultaneously presented to the other ear. Then, a beating sound will be noticed and heard, as if the two sounds combined naturally. The frequencies of both tones should not be more than a thousand Hertz for the beat to be perceptible, and the difference between the two should not go beyond 30 Hz. If these conditions are not met, then the two sounds will be interpreted separately and no binaural beat will be noticed.

When the perceived beat frequency corresponds to the delta, theta, alpha, beta, or gamma range of brainwave frequencies, the brainwaves entrain to or move towards the beat frequency. For example, if a 210 Hz frequency is played into the right ear and a 220 Hz one into the left ear, the brain is entrained towards the beat frequency 10 Hz, in the alpha range. Since alpha range is associated with relaxation, this has a relaxing effect or if in the beta range, more alertness. An experiment with binaural sound stimulation using beat frequencies in the Beta range on some participants and Delta/Theta range in other participants, found better vigilance performance and mood in those on the awake alert state of Beta range stimulation.

The resulting beat was first discovered by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove in the year 1839. Although continuous efforts were made to study binaural beats after the discovery, it was not until several years later that the subject became less of a scientific curiosity. Over a century after binaural beats were discovered, the article “Auditory Beats in the Brain” by Gerald Oster offered new insights and presented fresh lab findings about the phenomenon. In this article, Oster explored the uses of binaural beats as an important tool for diagnosing auditory and general neurological conditions, for neurological and cognitive research, and even for measuring relative estrogen levels in women. Today, binaural beats enjoy a popularity that stems from numerous, but unverified claims, about their benefits in the area of athletic performance, weight loss, smoking cessation, sexual disorders, and even learning and memory.

Estrogen – What is it for Women?

Estrogen is a group of compounds named for their importance in reproductive and menstrual cycles. They are the primary female sex hormones. Natural estrogen is a steroid hormone, while some synthetic ones are non-steroidal.

As the primary “female” hormone, estrogen promotes the growth and health of the female reproductive organs and keeps the vagina moisturized, elastic (stretchy), and well supplied with blood. Estrogen levels generally decline during perimenopause, but they do so in an irregular fashion. Sometimes there can be more estrogen present during perimenopause than in the past. Estrogen levels generally decline during perimenopause, but they do so in an irregular fashion.

The reduced production of estrogen beginning in perimenopause can affect your sexual function directly, such as through vaginal dryness. It can also do so indirectly, in the form of hot flashes and night sweats, which can drain your energy and undermine your desire for sex as a result.

How to Test Estrogen Levels?

There are a variety of tests available for determining hormone levels. Your doctor will likely have you take a blood test. Your blood may also be tested for FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone), which is responsible for regulating estrogen and progesterone production in the ovaries.

You should tell your doctor about any medications and supplements you are taking before having the test done. You should also inform your doctor about any hormonal contraceptive you use, as this could affect your test. You should discuss medical conditions including thyroid disease, sex-dependent hormone tumors, ovarian cysts, and unusual vaginal bleeding with your doctor, as they could affect your FSH levels.

There are three types of estrogen; estrone, estradiol, and estriol. Estradiol is the type of estrogen that is normally measured with testing, and a normal range is 30-400 pg/mL for premenopausal women (depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle) and 0-30 pg/mL for postmenopausal women. Levels lower than 20 pg/mL may cause hormonal symptoms such as hot flashes.

Regulating Estrogen Levels with Binaural Beats

There are multiple approaches available to increase your level of estrogen and improve general well-being, including radical Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT), lifestyle and nutrition changes, and more. Consider Binaural Beats as one of such creative approaches. Note that it is not meant to replace or substitute for the recommendations or advice of your physician or health care provider.

The video clips provided below are just two random examples found on YouTube to offer you try it right away. They are neither the best available, nor the most popular. So, feel free to make your own searches if you find this approach useful and promising.

Stereo headphones are required for the best effectiveness. As the method uses Binaural Beats, you must wear headphones to be able to hear the beat properly. Both the 'in-ear' earphones and 'over-ear' headphones are ok to use.

Here are two pieces, depending on your availability and readiness to spend time for such meditation.

1. 90 minutes meditation

2. 15 minutes meditation


* The effect of the Binaural Beats on different people may vary. Stop immediately if you are experiencing unusual symptoms. The current technique has reported of being one of the safest approach to the natural estrogen increase. However, it still affects the brain, and there is no method in the World, which fits all and everyone. Listen to your body! Listen to your mind! Stay open for positive and rewarding experience, but it may take some time before you will be able to relax and submit to experience. But, do not suffer, trying to enjoy it and failing. If you have unusual anxiety, headache, negative visualization, discontinue the session. Respect your body and mind preferences and desires.
* Not recommended for pregnant women or males unless you are trying to acquire female attributes.
* Not recommended for people suffering from epilepsy or irregular heartbeat.
* Not recommended for people with estrogen-dependent cancer predisposition.
