Do You Feel Like an Alien in Your Own Body?
Do you feel out of control over your body, mind, and emotions? Don't feel hopeless! Most Likely It's Your Hormones! I want to help you save your relationships, save your sanity, maybe even save your life! I'm Barbara Hoffman, author of Hope For Your Hormones, and I have spoken with over 100,000 women about Hormone Balance since 1992. I have helped countless women over the years, and I want to help you, too! Ladies, I have heard this feeling described repeatedly over these past many years. Women are saying "I just don't feel like myself anymore and it's debilitating." You say "I'm cranky, depressed, bloated, have no energy, cannot focus, can't sleep and my hair is falling out." Some of you say, "I've been told I'm going crazy by my husband/children/even doctor!" You are at your wit's end. What is going on?!
Guess, what? These symptoms are related to a condition called Estrogen Dominance. A woman can have deficient, normal, or excessive estrogen but has little or no progesterone to balance it. This can make you feel like you are literally losing your mind!
But... you say, "I've always learned that we need more estrogen as we get older because our estrogen production disappears." Typically, not the problem! It's progesterone that becomes overwhelmed or diminished, NOT estrogen. Let me ask: IS THIS YOU? LOOK AT ALL THESE SYMPTOMS OF HORMONE IMBALANCE!
Insomnia, restless sleep
Irregular menstrual flow
Anxiety / Panic attacks
Cold hands and feet
Headache, including migraines
Fibrocystic breast disease
Loss of sexual desire
Bloating / Fluid retention
Decreased mental sharpness
Inability to concentrate
These symptoms may sound common to some of you, but they are not indicators of normal health. If you have any of them, it is essential to get your hormones back in balance as soon as you can. The symptoms will only get worse if left untreated-- especially the weight gain. And who wants that? Natural progesterone créme has helped many women with all of the symptoms above.
I hear you saying "What Has Happened to Me?" As your ovaries age, their function begins to decline. The progesterone hormone production falls dramatically between the ages of 35 and 50. Progesterone is the "feel good hormone" and you will definitely begin to not feel good! Your estrogen hormones now have undue influence on your body and you are Estrogen Dominant. Sadly, many women have experienced this state since puberty causing them to experience PMS symptoms which they took as "normal". Things are not hopeless! Estrogen Dominance can be stopped and reversed. When Can Estrogen Dominance Take Over YOUR Life?
During peri-menopause or premenopause
When you are exposed to xenoestrogens, those environmental toxins and chemicals in the air and food which have an estrogenic effect on the body.
When you are taking estrogen replacement therapy or birth control pills that are high in estrogen.
When you have a hysterectomy and either your ovaries are removed or are no longer functioning properly. Did you know that even when the ovaries remain, they function sub-optimally after a hysterectomy?
When you have had a tubal ligation that affects the function of your ovaries.
When stress is a factor in a woman's life. Ha, ha, is there someone who does NOT have stress as a factor?
HOW DO I CORRECT MY ESTROGEN DOMINANCE?
It's not that difficult! Start now, before things get worse!
NUMBER 1 REMEDY: Using natural progesterone créme will usually restore hormonal balance and help a woman "feel like myself" again. Use just 25 days of the month for non-menstruating women and 12 days per month for menstruating women.
Avoid external sources of estrogen (xenoestrogens from meats, dairy, plastic, petrochemicals, pesticides and herbicides)
Use a supplement called DIM (diindolyl methane) or Indole-3-Carbinol which encourages your body to excrete excess estrogens. Good for men, too!
You can get back to normal! As I say, "Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life" Has your doctor placed you on synthetic hormones? Is your spouse, mate, child ready to move out? Are your friends worried about you? Do you have a hormone nightmare story? Let's share & get through this together!
