Postmenopausal Hormone Treatment   0  0   

Posted by Gert (Al) on 09/10/2013

I'm 56, postmenopausal w/ terrible insomnia, hot flashes, brain fog, memory issues--dr wants to put my on vivelle dots. Anyone have experience with this? I've tried natural remedies and not enough relief. Memory & sleep issues are killing me, and I'll lose my job if I don't get control.

Ten years ago, I was in the exact place you are. I had posted notes everywhere and was running on a couple of hours of sleep constantly. Years later, I became aware that, at the same time, I was also having much unacknowledged problems with statin drugs and also undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Both were causing major problems with my memory and sleep. Work stress didn't help either. I still don't sleep well and stopped taking prescription sleep aids after I found out they also will ruin your mental process. I take 1 mg of melatonin and a Valerian tablet to sleep now. Not great, but makes me tired instead of wired at night. Look to see if other hidden health issues may be compounding your situation. I exercised and thought I was very healthy, and never heard of hypothyroidism. I thought statins were keeping me well but I know better now. Best wishes. I know how difficult life can become when this happens.

Gert: You might try watching raw superfood and raw food videos on you tube for some good ideas.

Gert: You can get raw thai fish sauce that has been fermented for 2 years and take 30 grams per day. The salt is sun dried sea salt. Lots of sun dried sea salt is good. The nutrients are raw fermented and wild harvested the most bioactive kind. This product has iodine for the thyroid. You can get a case of 12 7oz. bottles shipped for $56.

I appreciate all the tips, but my question was does anyone have experience with vivelle? I cannot take mg due to my ibs-d. As stated in my post, I have tried everything--I wouldn't be going this route had I not given it all a good shot. BTW, vit e does reduce the hot flashes. Evening primrose oil, used as a suppository, helps w/ vag issues but makes a mess. I travel for work, so I can't have this mess every night. I need to conquer the insomnia and cannot take mg or I get diarrhea. Melatonin triggers my migraines. I need a response regarding bioidentical hormones.

Gert: I can tell you from my own experience and the testamonials I have seen from videos on youtube that the only way to get well is to go on a complete good food program. Taking 1 kg of regular food that is devoid of nutrients and life force cannot be fixed by taking a few grams of supplements. The doctor sells synthetic meds for profit not to make people well. Bioidentical hormones are a waste of money. Try to get all your nutrients from raw organic grass fed wild harvested soaked sprouted and fermented foods.

Hi, for insomnia, the best and healthy supplement that would help would be Magnesium L Threonate, 3 pills a day as per instructions on the bottle. It will help you relax, relieve stress, and afford a very well rested sleep. It is also the best choice for memory issues and brain fog. Mg L Threonate is the only form of Magnesium that will cross the blood brain barrier (discovered by MIT recently) It will help with sleep right away. Also called Magtein (Mg L Threonate) will help with long term memory but be aware that it takes Mg months to get built up in the body. It took 4 -6 months for me, but my mind got clear and I sometimes experience photographic recall. Then for short term memory and speed recall, I take Huperzine A, it worked within a week. Gingko Bilova is another supplement in addition to above that opens the blood vessels in the brain for better blood and oxygen circulation to improve brain function and memory.

I would start with one supplement at a time, observe yourself as far as how its affecting you, then add on the others after about a month or more each.

For hot flushes, I have read that taking Evening Primrose Oil could help pre or post menopausal symptoms.

There are several forms of Mg. Not all Mg will cause diarrhea. Mg Oxide definitely will and Mg Citrate could. Magtein will not. Mg actually will also help in IBS accdg. to the book "The Magnesium Miracle".

To Mike:

So, you've experienced menopause? The only "fix" for menopause is to outlast it, or die. You can not "fix" it by eating or taking something special. Support your claim that bio-identical hormones are worthless, please. You have no idea how I eat or anything else, yet you persist in your zeal to tell me what I should do. I agree, the most nutritious foods, organically grown on good, fertile ground is best. I grow an organic garden from which I get most of my fruits and vegetables. I have free range hens from which I get eggs and meat. I have pastured steers from which I get my beef and several goats for milk. None of this food has been medicated or treated with antibiotics or insecticides, ever. Also, I forage for wild greens and herbs on my 89 acres. My water comes from a well, so no added flouride there, and it has tested pure for microorganisms, but it is high in minerals. So, you are telling me to go out and buy a processed grass product and it will make me better? I don't believe it will change anything, since the hormones are what is out of whack. I have now been on the vivelle patch for 4 days and my mind is so much clearer, I have no hot flashes, and my itchy vag is better. Still nothing as far as sleep, but I'll take what I can get. Don't tell me these hormones are worthless-I am living proof that I got relief in several days. Again, I was merely asking if anyone had experience with this hormone issue.

Hi Gert!

I am just entering this arena. At 50 plus years old, and no concrete signs of menopause yet..... I can still tell something is looming on the horizon. Kind of like a Steven King movie. ;-).

I just wanted to say that I love your attitude, and envy you your food / lifestyle! Seriously, what you are doing sounds wonderful!

Please keep us updated on how it is going re menopause, and what you are taking? I am reading all I can in anticipation of outliving mine. Lol... Oh, and best wishes!

I read a lot about hormones but mine are not in balance yet. Estrogens can cause cancer growth if not balanced with progesterone. I use a progesterone cream by Em..... Sold over the internet and there are lots of good reviews on the product. Dr. John Lee was an ob/gyn who wrote a book What your doctor may not tell you about menopause. The body loses its ability to produce progesterone but fat cells can produce estrogens.

I am on vivelle dot, 0.05, new patch twice a week. I also use estrace cream for vag itch/dryness 3X per week. Only reason I'm doing it is for the insomnia--and I can't tell any difference yet. I was taking vit E for hot flashes and may start again, as I get them now at night when before I had them constantly. My sister swears by sepa (homeopathic pellets). I had total hysterectomy 7. 5 years ago and didn't really have any problems at all until the past year or so, can't say why that is. The thing about menopause is, everyone is different. I do everything right and have issues, my sister does almost nothing right and only has slight issues. It's Not Fair! As mom always said, life is not fair. Deal with it.

Progesterone   1  0   

Posted by Kristi (Cleburne, Texas) on 01/19/2009

[YEA]  Women need to know that PROGESTERONE does not cause cancer. Synthetic forms of progesterone such as progestin and provera and synthetic, unopposed or too much estrogen in the body can facilitate cancer growth.

Also, we have to be willing to make the dietary changes and move more. Most women would need NO hormones or medication whatsoever, if we would change our eating habits and take the supplements recommended.

This is what I finally decided to do and it is paying off. You need to be prepared for the fact that it can take years to restore your body. After all it took decades to get where we are!

[WARNING!]   It's important that every woman do research before using any hormones, even progesterone cream (which is toted as natural). All hormones have the potential for side effects. With progesterone, the effects are cumulative since it is fat soluble. So it gets stored in tissues. Even if taking it seems fine initially, over time it may create negative side effects and disrupt your adrenal hormones, DHEA and testosterone levels. It can cause all sorts of mood swings, facial hair, weight gain, etc. If you are considering, make sure you see a doc that practices functional medicine or a naturpath who knows how to balance properly. Best to test and treat your adrenal issues first as progesterone may not be needed once corrected.

3 different ob/gyn doctors never did a single test to put me on birth control pills ... this is the standard for most young women in America taking the pill. My current ob/gyn handed me premerin with no tests and it caused a problem in my throat for a year from one tiny 1 inch long sample tube. My current ob/gyn ran my hormone blood work and told me all is normal for menopausal woman.

Read some books, you can get different homone levels at different times of the day and month, it seems to be a crab shoot and every woman is different.

My medical insurance doesn't cover any MD WITH AN ND education, so we are on our own. The system is killing us.

Adrenal issues are frequently brought on by stress, which throws hormones, electrolytes and vitamins out of balance.... The fight or flight syndrome creates cortisol by borrowing elements from the body to prepare it to run from the bear.

My wife only takes microgestin to control endometriosis. She hates it. Do you know of a way to control endo naturally with all the chemicals that Dr's claim are safe?

Does anyone have advice on naturally balancing hormones without birth control? Please help!!!

In regards to Ambrosia's question about balancing hormones without birth control, here is what has helped me a great deal (taken on a daily basis):

- (Super) Greens (powdered - combination of barley, kelp, etc. - between 1-2 tablespoons in water, depending on how tired I am)
- Magnesium (powdered, flavored-in about 8 oz. water) (about 300mg., though I occasionally take a little more if I am really tired)
- Fish Oil (1 gel cap)
- Probiotics (2 pills)
- Super B Complex pills (B vitamins that includes folic acid, etc. - 2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon.)
- Minerals (multiple trace minerals - 2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon)

With the above, I don't have the mood swings and I do have more energy. In fact, if I don't take the Super Greens and Magnesium, it's evident because the mood swings start again. Before starting on these, I would start crying anytime and not even know why. And I was sooooo tired - I really was not functioning well at all. I do suggest taking the Magnesium and Super Greens at least 1 hour apart. Otherwise you may have an upset stomach for a little while. Hope this helps!

Hi guys, anyone out there know anything about high prolactin or hyperprolactinemia and controlling it naturally? Thanks in advance for your time!

Hello, I have successfully resolved high prolactin levels and a pituitary tumor using Standard Process Pituitrophin PMG, a natural food based product. Also if you google endoflex, it is exceptional at maintaining a balance in your entire endocrine system. Since pituitary is the master gland, an unbalanced pituitary means the other glands are unbalanced too.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Good luck, T.

Hi Tina, Would love to know more about your experience with PMG. My wife has a pituitary tumor and her prolactin levels are high. She's been on homeopathic therapy (and supplements) for more than a year, but we have not seen much improvement. She can't loose the weight (or looses some and gains back more) and has lots of emotional highs and lows due to the hormonal imbalances. I really don't want her to start on any prescription drugs, so I'm doing research to see what other alternatives she has.

Thanks!

Taking Standard Process PITUITROPHIN PMG 3 tablets per day brought my prolactin levels down (they were in their 80s) and resolved my menstrual cycle problem. It is available on Amazon. com and is completely natural product. Hope this helps.

Yes, these were recommended by my doctor since the cabergoline was not working on resolving bringing back my menses into a regular cycle. And this worked! Good luck!

Thanks a lot dear. For how long did you had them and did you ate cabergoline along with it? Any other alternative remedy for pituitary adenoma

Vitamin E   1  0   

Posted by Janet (Delaware, USA) on 08/30/2008

[YEA]  I was very curious to see vitamin E listed as a remedy on your anti-aging page. I feel very strongly that vitamin e is essential for women as they age. I know it helps me with hormonal fluctations and I notice that I have more vitality on the days when I take it. I have taken E off and on for at about 15 years and am now in my early forties. It's been great as a pms remedy and an after-menstrual-cycle-is-over remedy. I was trying to find out good dosages for E and came across an article that Vit E might act as a substitute for estrogen, which is why it is suggested for menopausal symptoms like hot flashes. Has anyone been taking vitamin E for perimenopause or menopause? Thanks.

Zinc, Wild Yam Cream   0  0   

Posted by Jen (Bozeman, Mt, Us) on 09/13/2011

Zinc works because it helps to bring your progesterone back up. Estrogen tends to dominate in alot of us women. Especially when you hit 30 . Wild yam cream has natural progesterone in it. I rub a little on my wrists in the morning and sometimes at night if I am feeling less frisky than usual. It is something you can adjust as needed. Estrogen and copper will also help if you are the opposite and your progesterone is too high. I gage which is high or low by my periods and my mood. If I am short tempered and my period is heavy and/or long I need more progesterone. If I am anxious and my period is light and/or short then I need more estrogen. Usually I am low on progesterone though.

I always make sure to supplement low dose of the opposite though so that you don't throw other things out of whack. Like your thyroid which needs copper and zinc. So if I am low on progesterone I use the cream in the morning and night on my wrists and I take 2 mg (RDA is 2 mg) of copper with at least 10 to 15 mg of zinc (RDA is 8 mg). Alot of us are low on estrogen because we are taking so much zinc to boost our immune system so be careful when your doing that. Make sure your taking copper too. If estrogen or progesterone is out of whack we don't feel desire. We also need testosterone which you can also get from zinc and DHEA (half of a 25 mg tablet per day) if you think your low there.
