insomnia

Dear Wray

I received tha natpro tuesday afternoon.I used the cream on my face before bedtime.And took the sepia homopathic tablets 4 of them.I was awake at 2h30 and only fell asleep at 5.30I usually use to use agelique hormone therapy.It helped a bit, but i still had the insomnia. now usually when i take the sepia i sleep like a log.

I found my blood started thickning and my flushes were still there when i drank caffiene tea and coffee. so i went over to Scelletium herbs. for my insomnia, togehther with calsium/magnesium, melatonin and and Vit d 3 for my depression.I also took the Sepia homopathic 4 of them before i climbed into bed.After 2 months on Femo Care Herbs which was :1200mg per day(2tabs 3x per day)
Agnus castus 200 mg and Agathosma 65mg and scelletium 20mg my hot flushes came back with a venguence.It was so bad that i ws having nigth sweats during the night.So i stopped that and went back on my Angelique.Now i have been on that for 2 weeks when yesterday the Natpro arrived.

I used the cream on my face before bedtime.And took the Sepia homopathic tablets 4 of them.As wel as the melatonin, Vit d 3 Scelletiium and calsium magnesium.I was awake .

Now usually when i take the Sepia i sleep like a log.Do you think the Sepia(Natura product) interacts with the progesterone?
Ingredients :Cimicfuga racemosaD400-Actaea racemosaD400-Lacheses mutus -D400-Sarguinaria canadensis D400-Sepia Officinalis
should i take this while using the progesterone cream?

Hi Rose You don't mention how much progesterone you used. If it was only on your face it must have been a very small amount! I recommend 100-200mg/day, or more, dependant on symptoms. This is 3-6ml or 3/5th to 1 and 1/5th tsp. I've found for instance that hot flushes and night sweats need about 400mg/day (12ml), sometimes more. You are also taking a number of oestrogenic herbs, the agnus castus, the black cohosh or Cimicifuga racemosa, Actaea racemosa, is also black cohosh. These all counteract the progesterone, which should be used a minimum of twice a day too. And how much vitamin D are you taking, it should be a minimum of 5000iu's per day. Please increase the progesterone substantially, particularly if you're only using it on your face. And are you still taking the Angelique, as that too will counteract the progesterone. Which does help insomnia, see here, here and here. Take care Wray

Hi Rose I am relieved! It sounded as if you were using far too little. I'm delighted you slept well, I do hope it continues. As you know it can be an up and down ride for a bit. Take care Wray
