Hi all, is this the same bioidentical hormone therapy that Suzanne Somers wrote about?
In any case, my head is already foggy, I feel so darn fatigued, am suffering from extreme mood swings, blow up at the most dumbest things, react to situations that I normally would not react to, etc. I have been in peri for about 1-1/2 years, perhaps longer and my symptoms are just getting worse as time goes on.
I have yet to find a doctor who will test my blood and put me on this type of therapy but I rather have the plant-derived hormones compared to the chemicals.
I would tend to think that whenever we put something "new" into our bodies it is going to take time to adjust and balance itself out. This is just my guess, I could be wrong. All I know is something in my body is out of whack whether is be too much estrogen, not enough progesterone, whatever..
I used to exercise and I know that helps so I must get back to exercising every day and cut out those "bad" carbs as well and start eating more soy. I believe diet plays an important role in this too. But easier said than done, right?
I am wondering if I went to a regular lab and had the bloodwork done, if that would tell me anything about my levels. Peri really stinks and I hate it!!
