I am 47 years of age with 3 Children. I am a teacher and had to deal with a lot of stress and deadlines the last few years.
I have read a little information and letters on your web site and would really like to try some of the natural products.
I would like to share my problem with you and would appreciate your help.
Since I can remember I had very bad and heavy flow when I had my menstruations with extremely pain full stomach, legs and back. My children’s births were pretty normal, but the dr had to give me inductions because I could not deliver or unlock naturally. I always had very low blood pressure when I was pregnant especially during the first 3 months and still have low blood pressure currently. With my last baby, I suffered from after birth blues (depression). From that stage I’m always on all kinds of anti-depressants. That is about 15 years. I also was diagnosed with endometriosis and had to have a hysterectomy. I am also struggling with bladder infections constantly and have to drink antibiotics often. I am diagnosed with fibromyalgia and am a little asthmatic. I will experience ear itching if I eat certain kind of foods like wheat and food with sulphur dioxide and other preservatives. I am depressed (often feel that life is just too much sometimes) tired, sometimes dizzy, Have night sweat, hot flashes, mood swings, sore joints, burning eyes and sinus - allergies, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, memory loss, less hand coordination, lethargy, stiff muscles, back pain, hair loss, brittle nails, dry skin. I do have irritable bowel syndrome and sometimes get colon inflammation.
Currently I start my day with 0.5mg eltroxin (I have nodules on my thyroid gland), Wellbutrin 150mg to keep me going. Femoston- Conti that is a HRT 5mg Progesterone and 5mg Oestrogens (the dr told me that this is a natural one but I am not so sure). As well as MSM for osteo arthritis and Cranbury capsules for bladder infections. I will then end my day (before bedtime) with Tofrinal 10mg- that is serotonin- and urbenol 5mg for a better night sleep. I also drink coral calcium with magnesium and Omega 3 as well as Vit D recently 3 times a week (Calsepherol). I try to have a gluten free and healthy diet but binge a lot (mostly weekends). I will eat fruit in the mornings normal food at afternoons, mostly rice and cooked veggies (don’t like meat) and gluten free bread and cookies. I drink coffee a lot with milk and love sweeties. Although the medication helps, I still experience these symptoms and the medications have a lot of side effects. I would like to try natural products but are too afraid to just be without my current medication.
I would appreciate your advise.
