I have been reading through pages of info here. It's a lot of info. I came across something that got my attention because I have a testosterone pellet in my hip and I'm taking the NatPro, 400/mg a day. I still struggle with sleep and depression. I was reading about the Natural Antidepressants and reading some Q & A between you and some woman. It sounded as though you were telling her to not take the Tryptophan if she were taking Testosterone. I can't find the page again so I"m hoping you will clarity this for me. I also tried using the "search" bar and have found a lot of similarly related topics but none fully answer my question. Are there ANY contraindications you know of to taking Tryptophan? Or any of the other supplement recommendations for that matter?
If you don't mind, while I have you on the line here I would like to ask about Testosterone. I have read your remarks about it and I've tried to read the pages you've recommended. But I must say they are very dry and use terminology I'm not familiar with, challenging my ability to understand. Which is not difficult in my already challenged, Estrogen dominant state. Are there any other articles you can recommend that are easier to understand? I'd also like to know if there have been specific studies done between synthetic testosterone and more naturally derived sources? The pellet I have comes from a wild yam I'm told. That can't be all bad, can it? Synthetic Progesterone is a hazard to one's health but natural Progesterone is beneficial. Could not the same be said for synthetic and natural Testosterones?
