Thanks Balletomane, you are right, when my mon was only 39-40 needed a hysterectomy total because lots of fibroids and ovarian cyst, and now my cousin (42 yo, type A) has the same problem with bleading, pain, etc ...   saddly she doesn´t want follow BTD or SWAMI...


Victoria I did a complete hormone test recently, (one month) and all hormones are ok, which is the name of estrogen dominance test ????


It would help to know what the doctor considers ok.  Does it mean that they are normal for a woman in perimenopause, with reduced progesterone and therefore an estrogen imbalance?  (which could be considered ok for your age, but still create problems in your health) Or does it mean that your hormones are what they were when you were in your 30's?

Normally, as we women age, our ovaries produce less and less progesterone, while our estrogen levels drop much more slowly and sometimes not at all.  In those cases, transdermal progesterone can work wonders.  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

The female balancing protocol is my holy grail atm!!!
I have just placed my Aromastat order - it is also a top recommendation in my SWAMI Xpress.

And now upped my dose to taking 2000mg of vitex each morning. Plus some iron and mag occasionally. Black currant seed oil is not available here, having a tbspn of EVOO instead.

Finding the rosehip & hibiscus tea with some chamomile is very soothing.

My ma had a 60gram cyst and then an ectopic pregnancy with blood transfusion when she was my age.
Interesting how stress & pain can totally pull me off my tracks; and only now feeling back ontop of the stress - it seemed no matter what I did I couldn't pull myself out of it & back on track, happy to be making progress now though.
Definitely inspired by your efforts Balletomane.

Quoted from Victoria
When I had an ovarian cyst, I took a whole dropperful of Vitex tincture twice a day for a couple of years.  It had shrunk quite a bit after one year (as seen by my annual exam) and was gone by the second.  Vitex is slow acting and my sense was that it was cumulative, therefore consistency is really important to get benefit from this herb.  But I like it a lot for this type of thing.


Victoria,
You're right about that. I actually saw my cyst and the smaller fibroid shrink after half year's of usage a while back. Then I read some "misinformation" online saying that vitex is very estrogenic, blah blah blah, so I got scared and stopped using it for half a year. The sizes of my fibroids and cyst grew back. Then I found out that Dr D's supps actually contain vitex so it should be alright for me to go back to the tincture. I am glad I did.

Quoted from Victoria
Also the transdermal Progesterone cream can be really important for women who are prone to this type of imbalance.  I used it from my mid-40's on . . .  I use slightly less than is listed on the bottle as recommended, because I am using it long-term.


I forgot to mention that I also use transdermal progesterone cream. I use a low dosage, 2 dabs only, once a day before bed. I tried having two doses before but the one in the morning made me so sleepy that I couldn't work, and the extra dose also made me feel depressed. So I reduced and it has been working fine.

Awesome! Good job my friend!!! All the information and good knowledge does not work unless someone applies it. Dr.D has shared some awesome information that is helping all of us heal but it's up to each one of us to apply it.


Thank you so much Chrysta. I want to thank you too, once again, for the tips on Magnesium. It is on the female balance protocol for all blood groups and I find that topical application has worked wonders on me  

Quoted from christaalyssaA+
I find it a bit annoying that medical Drs can't get excited (they choose not to) when you heal. Is it out of shock and disbelief because they pretty much never see it happen? Probably. They like to think things should be more difficult.


Ha ha ha, tell me about it! It is this mindset that reinforces the vicious cycle of DIS-ease. On the contrary, when I was lying there being examined, I reinforced my thoughts with positive affirmations and actually felt good about my healing process. I chased away all thoughts of fear and worries. I believe that to be so important in our quest to be well. Perhaps it was something that traditional medicine men and women did in the past but something that has been lost in today's impersonal medical system.

It was fantastic to hear about your health improvements during your pregnancy. That doctor sounds like a moron

It seems the more we talk with women the more we find they have similar issues. It is not surprising given the kind of processed food most people eat (on top of not being compliant with their blood type), as well as the environmental toxins (not just pollution but also the plastic utensils and chemical-laden personal care products). These chemicals mimic estrogen (known as xenoestrogen) and further aggravate our estrogen dominance condition.

One of the specialists I saw initially also said hysterectomy might be necessary due to the size of my fibroids. I'm glad I learned very soon that this would have serious repercussions on my health despite the fact that I do not plan to have children.

Regarding hormone tests, normally MDs give you a blood test to determine your female hormone levels. However, very little female hormones can be tested in the blood (to put it simplistically). The best way is to do saliva tests. They are much more reflective of your true level. I do so by ordering test vials from a lab called ZRT Lab, sending them back (across the Pacific Ocean!) and very quickly they send me results via the Internet with a detailed analysis. Definitely worth a try. I have been using these tests to monitor my hormone levels and keep track of my symptoms (through their questionnaire). Very useful.

I also suggest the book by Dr John Lee, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About PREmenopause: Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty." Excellent source of information.

Thanks Victoria for explanations, I did a complete blood test, Dr. said that I'm not in perimenopause or meno yet....I think that maybeit is because the vitex magnesium, yarrow and SWAMI or course! I don´t know if i did a estrogen dominance test?

Balletomane do you have the link for test salive, or some lab in Spain ????

Hi Raquel,

Here is the link to the lab's saliva tests:
http://www.zrtlab.com/test-kits/saliva-testing-kits.html

You can request them to send the test kit to you and you can mail it back by expedited air mail--that is, if there is no equivalent tests in Spain.

lol Awesome! I used Dr. Lee's progesterone cream while I was pregnant. (I only learned about it in my 2 month but do believe it helped me to stay pregnant even though I didn't know I was at the time.) When I'm not breast feeding Benjam'n anymore I'll go back onto my progesterone cream. I only buy Dr Lee's progesterone cream. I'm so happy his family are still making it. He has died but really has left a great legacy. I have actually put my step father on it also and my sister in Hawaii was able to get pregnant because of this. Very exciting!

As for that Dr I had during my pregnancy, being a moron... yes he was. But that's how they are trained. I do believe there are good ones, but that only comes from their personal desire to learn more so that they can truly help people instead of the "cut it out, sew it up, medicate it" mentality that they are trained to have.


O positive baby boy.

Did you interpret your results from the saliva test yourself Balletomane? Wondering how one would go about that.. I have ordered a female hormone profile test kit but have no idea about translating results of such a thing

Raquel, the cream is for upping your progesterone level. A women in pre-menopausal state or entering menopause could have a very low level of progesterone. Even if the estrogen level is already low, an even lower level of progesterone would lead to "estrogen dominance," which is responsible for a whole host of symptoms like fibrocycstic breasts, fibroids, PCOS and PMS. So you have to find out about your progesterone and estrogen levels first before knowing if you would need to use that cream.

Honeybee,

When you get your report from the lab, they will provide a detailed analysis for you so it would not be necessary to second guess

ZRT is in my knowledge the best lab for this type of test. Their lab director is David Zava, the guy whom Dr. Lee mentioned in his books.
