Endometrial cyst, treatment plan outline - need your advice, please
Dear Wray, I'm going to use NatPro for the first time, and I'd really like to know your opinion on whether my treatment plan is ok.
A short background: I am still menstruating (age 36), and I have a 6cm cyst which is presumably an endometrial one, as much as ultrasound technicians can tell. Nothing has helped to get rid of it so far (tried only natural things, no drugs ever), and I've had it for almost 7 years now. It causes me almost no pain except for near ovulation day, and then the pain is light. I want to get rid of it as it has a potential to rupture any time, they say. I'll do everything to avoid surgery, which doctors say is the only "treatment" in my case. I do have estrogen dominance symptoms (not severe or significant except for the cyst), but I'll leave them out now.
What I'm planning to do is to use maybe 200mg of NatPro daily for at least a month or 2 (or maybe 3?) non-stop, ignoring my period. I want to suppress estrogen as much as possible initially.
After having used it for maybe 2 months non-stop, I'm thinking to align it to my cycle and start applying it right after ovulation till next period, and reducing it slowly to 100mg. I hope not to have to use more than 100mg per day after an initial higher dose for a couple of months.
I'm thinking to give NatPro at least 3 months before having a follow-up ultrasound performed to see if the cyst is shrinking.
Having read your recommendations to others, I ordered N-Acetyl Cysteine, Glutamine, Glycine, and Taurine, all in powdered form so I can take high doses. I do have a bunch of other useful supplements to take along the way (like - Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc, MSM, B-complex, R-Lipoic Acid, etc.).
I've been taking 5,000IU of vitamin D3 for several months now, but have increased it to 10,000IU since a few days in order to have enough of it in my body for progesterone to work efficiently. I had very low levels of D3 when 1st tested.
Am I on the right track? Do you have any suggestions? I'd really appreciate your opinion and advice.
Thanks a lot in advance :)
