  • Help! Progesterone Deficient & Excess Estrogen

    Phyto-estrogens are ok, they are weak mimicking estrogenic compounds which lock up the receptor sites so more stronger estrogens aren't absorbed.

    Id personally give steroidal creams a miss, a good natural alternative to increase progesterone is Vitex (Chasteberry). It does take around a month to kick in though.

  • Help! Progesterone Deficient & Excess Estrogen

    To start you need to support your liver and the best way to do this is via bitter herbs on the back of the tongue pre meal. This cleanses the liver and inturn the liver can metabolize the excess hormones. There are many herbs which support the liver and are also bitters so powder form is a good idea. Some examples milk thistle, dandelion, andrographis, gentian etc.

    Supporting the adrenal glands is a good idea with adaptogenic herbs such as schizandra berry, jiaogulan, ashwagandha, siberian ginseng, maca root etc. These also balance hormones and some such as schizandra support the liver. Bee pollen is good for supporting the adrenal glands through its rich vitamin B5 content.

    You may be low on magnesium alot of your symptoms could be attributed to magnesium. The best types are acidified such as magnesium citrate/malate. Magnesium oxide should be avoided as its caustic and neutralizes stomach acid/ant-acid. Transdermal magnesium oil is great also and larger doses can be taken as it doesnt act as a laxative/cause the bowels to move.

  • Very Dry, Straw-like Hair :(

    Dry course, straw like hair is a symptom of either iodine deficiency or low thyroid/hypothyroidism.

    Try increasing your iodine intake via seaweeds. Any other symptoms such as cold intolerance etc.

    You have to watch certain greens raw as some of them contain goitrogens which interfere with thyroid function by messing up iodine uptake. Broccoli, spinach, kale etc are all goitrogens.

  • How many of us ended our eating disorder by going raw?

    Not raw but i most likely put too rest my orthorexia via a vegan diet. Anytime i ate anything which i deemed unhealthy i beat myself up mentally so hard that everything became a horrible challenge. Im sure most with ED can relate to that also.

    It was a horrible time, the power of the mind is a strong one, i half wonder if half the reactions i had to this "unhealthy food" were purely psychologically based, in that before i had even ate a spoonful i had already pre-programmed what bad results and feelings it was going to cause.
