Yes, yes, yes! Natural progesterone. You don't need more estrogen, you need the progesterone. I'm using a product called Endau and would quit eating before I'd let anyone take it away from me. :)

Thank You so much!! I currently take the lowest dose of prempro they make I think it is .3/1.5 ...could I use that with the prempro? the prempro was lowered from .45/1.5 and I notice a huge difference and it is awful!!! I've never had a hysterectomy but, do have a couple fibroids , non cancerous etc. I just want to feel more like I did in my 30's if that is possible? hot flashes, mood swings, not sleeping is horrid. What is that link please?

Hi Dixie, I was just reading your replies with ldyjarhead and she is right it is the Prolief that is making you feel better! I have been using the Phyto Prolief which is also an Arbonne product that is a natural hormone balancing cream, and I have not had a hot flash or night sweats since I have been using it! I feel that I have had hormone imbalance most of my life, I have suffered from many of the typical PMS symptoms. The site that you could go to and learn a huge amount of information on hormone imbalances is www.johnleemd.com Also, the prolief if designed for women that are 30 yrs old and younger and the Phyto Prolief is designed for the women that are over 30. So, if you are over 30 yrs old you should probably be using the Phyto prolief for more relief.

Dr. John Lee, MD studied womans hormones for years and found that it is that women are low on progesterone not estrogen, that causes the menopausal and PMS symptoms. It is also believed that low Progesterone in men can contribute to prostrate cancer.

Dixie, you might try some of the Phyto Prolief even though you have opted to go with the surgery. Hormone imbalance effects women that have had this surgery also. My friend had fibroids in her bust and the doctor wanted her to wait 3 months before coming back to be checked again. She started using the Phyto Prolief and the fibroids had decreased in size by 35% in that 3 months. The doctor was shocked. She did not have to have any surgery and today she has no fibroids. She says that she will never go off of the Phyto Prolief!If you are interested in checking it out some more, please go to www.nomorehotflashes.myarbonne.com If you would like to order some, give me a message and I can get some ordered for you!Good luck with your surgery!

The one thing that has helped me is soya products especially the milk. As soon as I felt a hot flush start I drink a glass of soya milk and it helps calm it down. I also take a soya tablet at night as my flushes are much worse at night. I have found this to really help me as I have never been on HRT and have gone through the menopause natually

Dear dixie, Many of the symptoms and discomforts experienced during menopause can be relieved by using natural home remedies, things like changing your diet and using some very specific herbs have shown remarkable improvements in women going through menopause. Home Remedies for menopause #1: To increase your levels of estrogen try increasing your consumption of plants which contain estrogenic substances: Alfalfa, soybeans, soy sprouts, crushed flaxseeds, garlic, green beans, sesame seeds, wheat, yams, pumpkin seeds, cucumbers, corn, apples, anise seeds, cabbage, beets, olive oil, olives, papaya, oats, peas, sunflower seeds, are all important sources of natural estrogens and as you can imagine they are loaded with vitamins, fiber and minerals essential not only for menopause, but to maintain an overall good health. If you want to know more about this you just visit the site http://www.homemademedicine.com/home-remedies-for-menopause.html They have given remedies for other problems too
