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. ...

B6 and progesterone production

The benefits of B-6 are many.  Let’s look at the best of them: Vitamin B6 in its natural state, as opposed to isolated in a laboratory, will give your body the “anutrients” that are supposed to accompany it.  A-nutrients are the balancing nutrients that all vitamins and minerals have “attached” to them.  An example is that to separate calcium from magnesium would make calcium almost unusable by the body.  Calcium needs magnesium to draw it into the blood and tissue.  Copper needs zinc etc.  With vitamins it is the same. Vitamin B6 is the vitamin necessary for the production of progesterone and a good healthy egg. Vitamin B6 will also lower prolactin; the hormone which produces milk for baby after birth.  It is this higher level of prolactin after birth which suppresses progesterone production.  This may not sound positive if you are nursing but for those who have allergies to dairy it is very helpful.  Note: Because of this lack of  B6 and subsequent rise in prolactin many will find fertility during nursing lowered.  Raising B6 will therefore lower prolactin, milk production and raise progesterone levels over time. Vitamin B6 will also help the body to deal effectively with stress.  Without it, stress raises cortisol which affects testosterone as well causing the imbalance of testosterone and estrogen necessary for proper a proper cycle.  More about this when we develop hormonal strategies. Vitamin B6 is necessary for the formation of antibodies and red blood cells. Vitamin B6 maintains and stabilizes healthy body tissue, skin and nerves, and hormone production. Vitamin B6 is as important to men as it is for...

Intro to Natural Progesterone Cream

Most women on the internet who are searching day and night to find fertility answers to infertility problems have read about natural progesterone cream.  Do most women understand the subject of natural progesterone, progesterone the hormone or what progesterone cream even IS?  NO.  That is my answer and I’ll stick to it. I have been helping couples overcoming infertility; naturally, since 1998.  The reason we have so many couples overcoming infertility is because we don’t spend time sprinkling invisible baby dust but rather, we teach couples why they are infertile and what to do about it. We are going to give you an envelope of baby dust free with an order but we are going to help you to feel great about what information you are armed with and will use to better your health. There is one thing that I have found, of ALL the products, herbs, supplements and gadgets that helps most every couple who crosses the threshold of our fertility websites; PROGESTERONE CREAM and I mean Natural Progesterone Cream. Why?  Because at the top of the mineral deficiency list is always Calcium and the top of the hormones lacking is usually progesterone.  I say usually because it does depend on pre or post menopause.  At Happy PMS Cream . com you will find a wonderfully effective natural progesterone cream with all natural ingredients and very popular in fertility/TTC circles. It is one of the 3 creams we recommend for TTC and in our Cleansing for TTC Shutdown; all time and effectiveness tested. More… Share and...
