What Hormones should I take now that I am going through Peri-Menopause and Menopause?
You are well into peri-menopause and going into menopause at this stage, of life. Menopause is NOT a deficiency disease, but a needed change in our hormonal balance. The only extra hormone needed at any stage of life these days in this polluted world, in 95% of cases, is Progesterone because it is from this “mother” hormone that all the other hormones in the D4 steroid pathway are derived. If this single hormone, progesterone, is sufficient then the innate intelligence of the body takes over and all comes into balance. There are a few minor tremors as the oestradial levels are declining, at this stage of life, and the powerful oestrogen oestriol, is rising, but these symptoms of imbalance can be managed by taking extra progesterone to cope with the extra demand of the stress hormones (it has a valium effect) as well as helping to prevent the hot flushes ….. plus a little Taurine and Melatonin for sleep disturbances at this time. Needless to say …”you are what you eat” and as far as I am concerned Nobody should be on sugar or gluten, and everyone should be eating a fresh, natural food diet. Remember everyone is different however and therefore every diet is different … find out what suits you. I recommend the Keto diet to anyone who is ill with cancer or an auto-immune disease……Plus naturone.
