If you need help with hormones or periods, you’re in the right place. This site explores women’s health topics such as immune treatment for endometriosis and the 4 types of PCOS. You’ll also find information about natural treatments including iodine for breast pain, progesterone for heavy periods, and some of the best natural anti-androgen supplements for facial hair and acne.
For more information, check out my books Period Repair Manual and Hormone Repair Manual, which cover topics such as the benefits of magnesium and Prometrium for perimenopause. And my podcast for “everything women’s health in under 15 minutes.”
Are premenstrual mood symptoms caused by progesterone or helped by progesterone? And why do antihistamines give such relief?
In episode seven of my podcast/YouTube video, I discuss the irritability, sensitivity, sleep disturbance, and even rage you could experience leading up to your period.
And what you can do about it.
Ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone are beneficial for health. That means natural ovulatory menstrual cycles are beneficial for health because ovulation is how women make hormones.
Does that surprise you? Men make testosterone every day, so you might think women do something similar, but we don’t. Instead, women make hormones as a surge of estradiol leading up to ovulation and an even bigger surge of progesterone after ovulation.
