What would you suggest for a child who is rebounding from anorexia? My sweet girl has not had her period as of yet ( she is 14 ), but my concern is should she begin taking progesterone now while still on Celexa and Zyprexa for severe depression and OCD behaviors/anxiety. Both of these medications have helped, although I still do not like the thought of her taking them.
I currently have her taking a vitamin d supplement daily ( 5000 iu ) along with Omega 3 oils. When is the right time to begin progesterone, if at all? Dealing with the disease is tricky because she does need to be encouraged to eat anything. We currently are using lime oil and ylang ylang oil which she greatly loves due to their aroma.
One last question. Does anyone out there know how well progesterone serum works? My other sweet girl (17) was diagnosed with endometriosis. She was placed on Balziva, a birth control, but we are trying desperately to remove her from all synthetic hormones. We took her off and have been using a plant based serum, detox program for her liver, and vit. d, omega 3 pills, primrose softgels, and theives oil. She does alright with pain unless she tries to run, and she's a runner. Pimples have also surfaced, sweating heavily under her arms, difficulty sleeping, along with moderate hair growth on her arms and slightly on her face. A perscription for YAZ birth control to help was called in yesterday, but we did NOT fill it.Any suggestions would be a great blessing to both girls. Thank you! MK
