Dear C

Many thanks for your question.

Your medical doctor has assessed you correctly. Your hormonal cycle is indeed out of balance. This imbalance now needs to be rectified. I suggest that you take both of the following products :

EVENING PRIMROSE OIL by Vital, as x 2 capsules daily after food. Evening Primrose Oil will assist in regulating your hormonal cycle, lessen a heavy menstrual flow, and even assist in settling an emotional imbalance where there is a sense of weepiness and mild depression.

VITEX AGNUS CASTUS BERRY by Viridian, as x 1 capsule, 3 times a day after food. Finish the full course.

Evening Primrose Oil can take up to a month before you feel the full benefit of a more regular menstrual cycle. Initally do take both of these products, and then stay with Evening Primrose oil as x 1 capsule daily.

I wish you well, and hope that you will soon feel more like your old self.

Warmest regards

Angela

Dear J

Thank you for your question.

Pregnavit is a multivitamin, which has been formulated for expectant mothers. This mulivitamin alone will not make you pregnant. You need to understand that it will assist your body in being prepared for conception to take place. Many other factors have to be considered as well, e.g. eating a well balanced and nutritional eating plan, drinking sufficient filtered water on a daily basis, gentle exercise, and very importantly remaining destressed. Smoking is also a definite no-no!

Pregnavit is formulated presuming that all these other factors are being adhered to by a woman who is planning to fall pregnant. Hence, it is a good average multivitamin for this purpose.

Take Pregnavit as 1 - 2 tablets daily after food for ninety days. An omega supplement like MUM OMEGA by Equazen, should also be taken during this time span so as to assist in your baby having healthy brain, nerve and muscle tissue.

I wish you much luck with your future plans to have a baby.

Kind regards

Dear C

Many thanks for your question.

You are quite correct in not using the pill, with you being forgetful in not taking it. All the pharmaceutical contraceptives are 100% synthetic! You are also quite right in picking up on the compound in Petogen. Loss of libido is one of the side effects of a pharmaceutical contraceptive.

Are you taking a multivitamin at all? I ask this, because contraceptives deplete the skeletal structure of the body of calcium, magnesium, potassium and other important nutrients. Before you change over to another contraceptive, you might like to consider a really good multi vitamin like WOMEN'S MULTI PLUS by Good Health, which is a good quality multi vitamin and mineral supplement from New Zealand. We stock a good number of quality ranges at Wellness Warehouse, but with your symptoms this would be a perfect product for you. Take x2 tablets daily after food, preferably after breakfast. This product can be ordered on line directly from Theresa on telephone number 021-4875420.

It would benefit you to consider coming off Petogen for a few months (having taken it for 3 years, would require 6 months of detoxification from all the chemical components, which settle in the membranes of the soft organs of the body). You could then restart with Petogen again, always taking a good quality multivitamin. Nur-Isterate is preferably for a woman who is not prone to weight gain, as it is listed to cause weight gain or massive weight gain. This is why blood pressure and weight monitoring at all family planning clinics is so important. Should you decide to detoxify from Petogen, please remember to use a good barrier method like condoms.

I wish you well, and hope you feel more like your old self soon.

Warm regards

Angela

The Discovery Vitality assessment is a non-invasive medical check-up. Discovery Health encourages all clients who have Vitality to have an annual screening, so as to check for the following: A blood pressure check; a measurement of height and body mass (weight); a body mass index (BMI) is worked out and given; an abdominal circumference (girth) measurement; and a glucose test and total cholesterol screening via the finger prick method, as a fasting profile. Questions are asked about whether a client is a smoker or ex smoker, nutritional intake of vegetables and fruit, types of exercise done and their time duration. Depending on all the results of the above, nutritional lifestyle and exercise change guidelines are discussed and given to the client. All results are explained at primary health care level applying optimal health care, working with the principles of preventative, promotive and curative health as applied, thereby often catching many conditions well in time before they become chronic diseases. The Discovery Vitality assessment is an extremely cost affective way of monitoring basic health, and at Wellness Warehouse is done with a 30 minute appointment. Kind regards, Angela, Nursing Practitioner.
