Have you ever found a product that worked so well that there was NO WAY you could keep this juicy information to yourself?
And I must tell you about it.
But first, let me caution you that this is a post about PMS. If you're a male reader (I know there are a few of you, and you know who you are) continue reading at your own risk.
I am severely affected by PMS. Honestly, I think I have about 1.5 good weeks out of every month. The other 2.5 weeks are characterized by irratibility, mood swings, weepiness, weight gain, bloating, cravings, lack of energy, and a few more unpleasant symptoms. It seems that the older I get the more severe my PMS becomes.
A while ago, a friend told me about this product. Phytoprolief Balancing Cream by Arbonne.
I can sum it up for you in one word: miraculous.
When I use this stuff consistently, my PMS symptoms almost completely disappear. A couple of months ago, I realized that I wasn't feeling great and was very tired and very emotional. And then I realized that I hadn't been using my cream. I started again (twice a day from day 12-26 of my cycle) and seriously, I was a different person. John even said to me one night before dinner..."whatever you're doing, keep doing it, because it's P minus two and you're actually laughing and in a good mood". I'm telling you, this stuff works. The difference for me when I use it is night and day!
Basically, it's a natural progesterone cream, but this particular brand also has some herbs in it that are good for female stuff. (By the way, I don't sell Arbonne products). There are a variety of natural progesterone creams available, and because this one is a bit on the pricey side, I'll probably try my local health food store for a replacement when this pump runs out.
I never realized how much is affected when your hormones are out of balance. As women age, they need more progesterone to keep estrogen from dominating their systems. Did you know that the following are all symptoms of estrogen dominance? (And these are just a FEW of the many symptoms.)
Depression (with anxiety or agitation)
Fat gain (especially around abdomen/hips/thighs)
Thyroid dysfunction (mimicking hypothyroid)
Water retention, bloating
AND SO MANY MORE!
I've been reading a fascinating book about pre-menopause. Did you know that pre-menopause can begin in women as early as mid-thirties??? Seriously, I think every woman from thirty-fifty should read this book. It is eye opening to say the least.
The book talks a ton about the importance of hormonal balance, how to find out if you're out of whack, and how restore your hormone levels to their natural balanced state using a natural progesterone cream. It has lots of information about health and nutrition and is peppered with stories of real women who've experience amazing results with natural progesterone. I'm telling you, I'm a BIG believer. If you experience any of the above symptoms that I've described, please, please read this book (I checked it out from my public library!). It has the potential to change your life, or at the very least help you feel better!
