I've read about Estraphase and Aromastat on the NAP website and also in my Technical Reference Guide, and I'm not clear on the possibilities of these two products.  I know that Aromastat is good for men who want to protect their prostate health.  Estraphase is great for women who have had estrogen sensitive breast cancer and want to assure that this imbalance does not happen again.  

1.  But can either or both of these products be used by menopausal women who want to:

* Increase libido without taking testosterone supplements?

* Correct estrogen dominance?

2.  Will the use of either product create a hormonal imbalance when used by menopausal women?  Too much testosterone, for example?  Or a deficiency of estrogen?

3.  Will either product help in a case where the DHEA is low in a blood test?

Thanks Vicki,  
The protocols are being followed, along with the Menopause book.  

A little more specific focus on dealing with the estrogen dominance and low libido is needed, and thus I hope to hear from one of the NAP folks on the more subtle effects of those two supplements.

I don't think you will get any subtle effects info out of NAP on the supplements in question....considering you have the technical reference guide which has all you really need.... so I don't feel the need to reiterate any of the info in it for you...your answers are there  especially to answer your estrogen dominance question. Both formulas were created  for menopausal woman in mind and men with too much estrogen(prostatic problems) and estrogen dominated cancers. If you want a definitive answer then I would suggest a phone consult from the D'Adamo clinic to address your condition professionally and individually because low libido can be influenced by other factors...some woman report that freedom from pregnancy actually improves their sex drives.

To balance the amount of Dhea in your blood , I would suggest a product called Moducare...it contains plant sterols and sterolins that naturally balance your DHEA levels. Interesting is the fact that cortisol has an effect on your dhea levels so I would also look into taking Cortiguard

Thank you Mikeo and Isa.  

Mike, that was a very informative article on Moducare.  I have copied it to read again later so that I can really digest it.  Interesting to me is the connection between adrenal fatigue and the hormone balance.

The question that I posted above that I still do not have an answer for is this one:

"2.  Will the use of either product create a hormonal imbalance when used by menopausal women?  Too much testosterone, for example?  Or a deficiency of estrogen?"

**I am especially concerned to make sure that an estrogen deficiency is not caused.  We hear a lot about estrogen dominance, but I don't understand if either of these products would move a woman's body too much in the opposite direction.**
