Can Menopause be reversed?
by Davina Levi
I'm 50 years old and before my last period (last June) I was using Natpro to ease my heavy perimenopause symptoms. I had noticed that whenever I was using Natpro, my cycle was becoming more erratic and few days later another menstruation, always heavier, would appear.
Soon I started to take an Iron supplement as I could hardly stand on my feet. Being unable to find the exact doze of Progesterone for my body I finally went to my doctor, who diagnosed that I also suffered from fibroids and he suggested an immediate hysterectomy. My sexual life was not very satisfactory the past 5 years but the idea of removing and actually amputating my body was out of the question! I left running from his office and discontinued the use of Natpro. To fight the fibroids I started taking enzymes (VitalZym) and paid extra care to my diet.
A month later (July) I noticed waves of hot flashes and insomnia, but being under the impression that I am still perimenopausal and in expectation of my menstruation I did not magnify my symptoms. In August, I realized that I finally entered menopause as I had no menstruation at all. To ease the most-embarassing-hot-flashes, I started taking "Eminox" pills, a blend of natural herbs, as supplement and treatment, always keeping away from Natpro. I did not notice any dramatic improvement, yet "life was bearable" and of course I did not menstruate. The hot flashes were not that severe now, I had an adequate lubrication during intercourse and a rather fair libido (my partner is 4 years younger and sexually active), but the hairloss was still there and now the insomnia was replaced by sleepiness and exhaustion to the extent I could not drag myself out of bed or catch-up with my daily activities!
No question of visiting a Western Medicine practicioner and hear the "hysterectomy" alternative! Under the unpleasant circumstances, last week I remembered Natpro. It only took 6 days of use to see blood spots! Not to mention the unbearable backaches. To make things worse, today I woke up from a TERRIBLE vagina itch to the extent that I can neither use panties or wear my underwear! I did not miss my Natpro rubbing though but the hot flashes are here with the same intensity. I would appreciate your explanation before I visit an alternative therapist next week. P.S. the rest values in my blood tests are good. Many thanks for your prompt-Davina
