Hot Flushes and Night Sweats

Estrogen surges at different intervals during the day, it usually starts from the chest and moves up the neck to the face. For a few minutes, a woman will feel very uncomfortable, sometimes dizzy, her body temperature rises. This is caused by Estrogen Dominance Surges. Using Natural ProgesterAll Balancing Cream these hot flushes will slowly diminish. It is also advisable to follow the advice of your practitioner or our Women Wellness Consultant. You will be advised to maybe change your diet or start a gentle exercise program. Hot flushes start at around the age of 49-52 or in some cases much earlier.

Wear cotton clothing as much as you can, both under and outerwear. Cotton mix jumpers on top of blouses and tops are a good idea, you can take off your layers when you feel a flush coming on. This is a good time to rub in a small dab of ProgesterAll behind your ears and on the palms of your hands.  In summer wear cotton as much as possible, cut down on alcohol and if you do go out, drink long drinks with small amounts of alcohol. Eat lots of cool fruit, such as watermelon, melon, fruit salad and homemade fruit and vegetable juices. In the morning when you wake up try to drink warm water with lemon juice, a slice of lemon and fresh ginger and a small slice of Dong Quai root. Be sure you apply your ProgesterAll cream in areas that the sunlight will not reach and on clean skin.

Women are unable to sleep comfortably and wake up in the morning feeling like they haven´t slept at all. The best thing to do in the height of summer is to go into the shower, take the shower head with lukewarm, nearly cold water and start from your feet upwards until you reach your neck, and then go back down again to your feet allowing the water to cool you down, then turn the water a little cooler and repeat it a few times, leave the cool water running on the back of your neck. Then gently pat-dry your self and get into bed, put some drops of Lavender oil on your pill around the top part, drink a glass of water and relax. You will soon drift off into a gentle sleep feeling cooler and fresh.

Once you start using Natural Progesterone ProgesterAll Balancing Cream these symptoms will slowly fade away. The flushes and night sweats will become less after a few weeks of using the cream on a daily basis. Chemicals and additives in cleaning and hygiene products can also affect hot flushes and night sweats. Try to avoid these products in your house. Steer clear of people who make you anxious or upset. Taking care of yourself is so important when you reach menopause.

                                               Migraines and Tension Headaches

A migraine is not a “headache” a migraine occurs when the blood vessels around the brain swell in different parts of the head. A migraine is a complexed infirmity and can be caused by many things. Estrogen Dominance is the main perpetrator of the cause of a migraine in women during peri-menopause and menopause.

During a woman´s cycle, normally 3 days before a woman´s period is about to begin there is a surge of estrogen, preparing for the period to start if the egg has not been fertilized. This is the time the migraines or tension headaches begin. Treatment for this is vital until you have balanced your hormones correctly with ProgesterAll. This takes time but will be explained to you if you suffer from hormonal migraines.

Again during the middle of the cycle around days 12-16, there is another surge of hormones, the Progesterone hormone is the hormone that protects the fertilized egg and maintains its in the womb so that it develops into a baby. If a woman is hormonally unbalanced she will still release Progesterone, but she may be releasing more Estrogen, and this is where the unbalance lies and causes the tension to start a migraine or a tension headache. Notably again, it is a 3 day period of time, so treatment should be considered, again until you have learned how to balance your hormones and avoid the estrogen surge mid-cycle. If you are suffering from mid-cycle migraines, our consultant will help you use the ProgesterAll correctly and discuss your lifestyle changes to avoid it.

Using Natural Progesterone Balancing Cream ProgesterAll you will be able to avoid hormonal migraines, this is a slow process but is possible and can be done with patience and a correct diet. Other causes of a migraine such as strong alcohol, cheap red wine, msg in foods, blue cheese, dark chocolate, oranges and other acids forming foods. A migraine suffers should never eat wheat or drink lactose drinks late at night. During the digestive system after eating you are likely to get a migraine around 4 hours later, as it passes through our digestive tracts. Ideally, your evening meal or snack should be a least 2 hours before you retire.

Strong cleaning products, cigars and heavy perfume are a nightmare for a migraine suffer. Avoid them at all costs. If you wear perfume, find something gentle that has no heavy Jasmin notes or aromas that you know will start it. Try to light colognes and Eau de toilettes that are organic. Sample perfumes to see before you buy them.  Bright sunlight, loud music and spicy hot foods may also induce an attack.


                                              Weight Gain and Bloating

One of the symptoms of Estrogen Dominance is weight gain, especially around the tummy area and hips. Estrogen is usually housed in the fatty areas of the body, hips, tummy and thighs. It is quite happy living there and when you notice a woman with very slim ankles, think wrists and fingers, but heavier around her middle, then you will know that she is overweight through estrogen dominance and not by overeating. So it’s important to keep to a healthy lifestyle and walk as much as you can. Walking gets these areas moving and of course go to the gym if you have time. A lot of chemicals can cause this too, so keep away from estrogen related foods. The medical term for products that cause imbalance is Xenoestrogens.

                                     Mood Swings & Depression 

Mood swings start with estrogen dominance, that’s why it’s called “mood swings” because they come and go for no particular reason, this is because the hormone levels in your body also go up and down and become unbalanced. Depression then turns up, women must really learn to help themselves because sometimes these situations are very difficult for other people to understand. The woman experiencing the mood change may also not notice she is the way she is at that moment. So get plenty of sleep and if you notice you feel stressful, take a few minutes out of your day and relax, sit down and put some ProgesterAll on the soles of your feet and behind your ears. If you do feel very poorly then find a friend to talk to, someone you can confide in, call her and ask if she has time for a coffee or a drink somewhere to an afternoon to go shopping. A change of scenery will work wonders. Talk to your doctor if it becomes very serious. At the same time using ProgesterAll Balancing cream will certainly help, but like all natural alternatives it will take time, patience is the secret.
