This is a delicate subject. If the Explorer has not experienced hormonal balancing (yet) by the diet or by a testing and treatment from a qualified OBGYN - does eating red meat at the "wrong" time of day (when digestion is weaker) still make sense, if blood loss has become very significant? Or would the eating of more meat become an expression of the hormonal imbalance playing out?

- I - think inadequate meat intake would put an extra strain on the bone marrow's work restoring the blood during the mense.

Take extra Vit A (up up 50,000 IU) per day when you are experiencing heavy bleeding, that will stop it.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/847567

Quoted Text
In a study of women with menorrhagia who took 25,000 IU of vitamin A twice per day for 15 days, 93% showed significant improvement and 58% had a complete normalization of menstrual blood loss.3 However, women who are or could become pregnant should not supplement with more than 10,000 IU (3,000 mcg) per day of vitamin A.

I am very interested in this subject even though I am no longer having cycles. I had VERY heavy menses, which turned out related to fibroids, and I think if the genotype info had been availble sooner I could probabyl have turned that situation around, but ended up with a complete hysterectomy in 2005. Since I suspect my neice may also be an Explorer (like my sister she is a B, so probably Nomad if not Explorer) I would like to help her prevent some of the same problems many in my family have had.

I was vegetarian for many years and believe that this is why my reproductive system when south. I would always have major cravings for rare steak just prior to and during my periods. (Which I always disregarded.)  Of course I am an O which makes a great difference...

  I'll go get some. I'm 24 hours too late. I was too weak to think about things by the time I got home. I also had someone write to me about yet another supplement in case this is an estrogen dominance overload.

The 2nd day is literally a National Disaster by the time it's over with (if the Red Cross knew - they would come pick me up in their little white truck and be checking me out for assistance.)

Now, on to change jobs....so I can get to a health clinic + mamogram.

Am counting the new crop of gray hairs in my head...and hoping!
Can't remember if there is anything akin to a "fibroids" protocol.
Any old-timers remember this?

Lola may be implying something positive in her previous post about this.
It's really kind of strange, isn't it?
(We) start out assumimg that BTD or GTD or SWAMI "might" take care of everything, but, I think it takes care of things while "deeper problems" surface for more comprehensive or targeted treatment.
My current "laundry list of issues" now includes
1.) fibroids or an estrogen dominance
2.) that one varicose vein that won't go away
3.) only slightly blurry reading vision
4.) 65 pounds to lose (instead of 70. Yay!)

I suppose I should be grateful, compared to thousands of other folks!

6 months ago borderline high blood pressure was an issue; now it's not.
9 months ago I was still actively bulimic; now I'm not.

I suppose I will learn what is still "stuck" in my body or going round and round through this process!
