Better Tasting Water

So did you ever feel like you couldn’t drink another glass of water even though you had read over and over how important it is for you? Well, it is very important and we try to stress that here at Infertility Workshop.  If you have menstrual cramps for instance, then water will hydrate your muscles to help them not to cramp as much.   If you have issues with miscarrying early on, you may be surprised to know that the muscles of uterus are MUSCLES and that means you need to be hydrated in order to keep from becoming rigid and not being able to contract and release lightly for the proper blood flow. So how to drink that 64 oz per day or more?  I have been juicing for many years and have recently found thrown in among the recipes a common answer. Tasty Water is what I call it, or Better Tasting Water and it consists of: 1 gallon pitcher of water (filtered or well is always best) 1 lemon washed and then cut into thin slices.  (take off the ends) 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger.  Just peel it and grate it. 1 peeled cucumber sliced thin. Your favorite fruity tea bags as long as they don’t have sugar can also be added to make your water taste better too.  I like Celestial Seasonings tea for yummier water.  There are so many great flavors but my favorite would be a combination of True Blueberry and Wild Berry Zinger.  In a 2 quart pitcher put 2 Wild Berry Zinger and 1 True Blueberry and let steep until room temperature. ...

Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen Dominance is also called Estrogen Dominance Syndrome EDS. It is commonly misunderstood in that most women think it means they have too much estrogen or they say “My estrogen is low, so that cannot be my answer.” The truth is that estrogen dominance merely means that estrogen is dominant out of balance in relation to progesterone. Some symptoms of estrogen dominance may seem like something you have had for a long time and never thought it was anything but a pain. PMS – Pre Menstrual Syndrome Allergies – believe it or not allergies can be from hormonal imbalance. Hormones out of whack are a very common reason. Decreased sex drive – Now this is a bummer if you are trying to conceive and even if you are not, it is not a good thing for a marriage. Depression – Think about how many women you may know who are on prescriptions for depression who might use a boost from natural progesterone cream instead. Foggy thinking – Also related to the adrenals it is frustrating and confusing.  Many women in peri-menopause or menopausal years fear they are starting to lose their minds due to their foggy thinking. Cyclic headaches – This means they seem to come and go with your cycle.  Hormones spiking can cause even migraines. Weight gain, especially around the middle or hard to lose weight.  This can come from a hormonal imbalance due to raised cortisol levels which will then affect estrogen and progesterone levels. Fibrocystic breasts – Do you have bumps on your nipples that are similar to pimples? These are just the beginning few. ...
