Hormone Imbalance Can Cause Mental Illness (Comments are Disabled)

Hormone Balance for Mental Health 497 Comments

The late Dr. John Lee was a visionary. He recognized estrogen dominance was condition that millions of men and women had, but one that was rarely being treated or acknowledged by the medical community. But just because something isn’t recognized, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Estrogen dominance is a condition that Dr. Lee coined. It’s a condition where estrogen operates in the body without sufficient amounts of progesterone to balance it. So estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency can be used interchangeably.

It’s a condition that I had and one that I now manage, thanks to the help of Dr. Lee.

I was 19 when I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. And the only reason I went to the doctor was because I had stopped bathing and brushing my teeth. I went to the doctor for no other reason.

I called my family doctor to discuss my hygiene problems and was told that I was being referred to a specialist. I had no idea the specialist was a psychiatrist and that my life was about to change forever.

I laugh now because it’s clear. I was being referred to a psychiatrist because my doctor knew I was mentally sick, but I didn’t know it.

I eventually made it to my referral appointment and told my psychiatrist how I was having problems bathing and brushing my teeth and sleeping. I told her how depressed I was and how I cried all the time and how I wished I was dead.

She asked me if anything stressful or tragic had happened in my life recently to cause these feelings. I told her “no.” My life wasn’t perfect, but nothing had happened to me to warrant those feelings.

So that was it. We talked and I wanted to die.

After we talked, she left her office and came back with a pamphlet and prescription pad.

She asked me if I had ever heard of bipolar disorder and she said the reason that she had asked was because that’s what I had.

She told me I had bipolar disorder as if I had won a prize. Like I had chosen the right curtain on “Let’s Make a Deal” and a shiny new car was waiting on me.

I was sick. A piece of me died.
I wanted to turn back time. I wished I had never gone to the doctor.
I wanted to go back to being that carefree girl who wasn’t bathing or brushing her teeth, but at least she thought she was healthy.

I would have given anything to be that girl again.

So from that moment on, I became determined to deny my disease. I suppressed every memory of that day whenever it sprang up.

I ran.

The doctor gave me prescription for Zoloft. I swallowed one pill and flushed the rest down the toilet. She told me to make an appointment to see her again in two weeks. I basically told her to kiss me where the sun didn’t shine and skipped out the door.

I was wreck.

I’m not against psychiatry or psychiatrists, I was just afraid to take powerful medicines when no one really knew what was causing my bipolar disorder.

And so I did more running. I had a nervous breakdown.
I was alcohol poisoned twice. Hospitalized once.
I had wild, random sex. I was living on the edge.
My thoughts raced so fast they skipped out of my brain. I was in outer space.
My head ached so bad I thought I was having aneurysms.
I hated my life.

And then there were the ghosts that visited me every night. Howling beside my bed while I tried to sleep.

I would sleep with the lights or television on and I played loud music to drown them out.

This was my nightly routine for over 14 years.

I look back now and I say, I was hallucinating. But at the time, I didn’t know what was going on. I just assumed I was cursed and that God hated me.

Do you know how horrible that feels to think the Creator of the universe hates you so much that He allows demons to torment you?

It’s not fun, but it was the only way I could make sense of it.

It was only after my hormones became balanced that I realized I wasn’t cursed and that I finally experienced relief from all of these symptoms.

So at 28, I was sick and unemployed. I had to face my disease and *cringe* file disability so that I wouldn’t become homeless.

I did not want to be 28 and disabled. I wanted to be sipping margaritas on the beach, not dreaming of ways to kill myself.

I was at my bottom and I decided that I was going to stop running and to talk to my Maker.

One thing that this disease did for me is it made me feel closer to God, because so many days I knew that He was the only One who knew how I felt. The disease isolated me from family and friends and sometimes I felt detached from my own body.

I prayed to God and said, “God, I know You made me and You know everything about me. And You know that I’m sick. If it’s in Your will for me to die sick, I promise I won’t try and kill myself anymore but please give me the grace and strength to bear it. But if I’m not supposed to be sick and there is a way I can be healthy, please show me the way.”

And He did.

Shortly after my prayer I attended a women’s health conference and there was a nurse that presented there. I remember she talked about leading a healthy lifestyle which included a balanced diet and exercise.

After the expo I visited the tables and booths that were set up and filled my bag with the free goodies they had.

When I got home, I dumped my loot on the floor and looked at all the cups, pencils, notepads and pens I had received. And there a pamphlet I had thrown in my bag too. The pamphlet read: “The Signs and Symptoms of PMS.”

The symptoms read:
*Depression
*Irritability
*Mood Swings
*Crying
*Bloating
*Headaches
*Fatigue
*Concentration Problems

After reading the list I said, “I have all of these symptoms times infinity.”

I knew PMS was hormonal and so I figured that what I was dealing with was hormone related too.

Every time I researched hormones and hormone imbalance Dr. Lee’s name always came up. It was clear he was the authority on the topic and that if I wanted to know about hormone balance, I needed to read his work.

And so I did. I went to my local bookstore and bought a copy of his book, “Hormone Balance Made Simple” and read it in one night.

Reading Dr. Lee’s book was like breathing fresh air. I had long suspected my hormones were linked to my moods but every time I shared my suspicions with my doctor, whether it was my ob-gyn or psychiatrist they all but laughed in my face.

And here was Dr. Lee telling me how hormone imbalance can cause mental and physical sickness and he gave instructions on how to fix it.

Step 1) was to take hormones only if I needed them, Step 2) was to take bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic ones and Step 3) I was to take hormones in physiological amounts only (the amounts the body makes naturally when it’s healthy).

I followed Dr. Lee’s advice and balanced my hormones and my bipolar disorder went away.

At the time, I had no idea my hormones were causing my bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, hallucinations and mania. I thought they were only aggravating it. I was glad to find they were the cause.

Today, I continue to follow Dr. Lee’s steps for hormone balance. I take progesterone 10-14 days a month depending on my symptoms and the rest is history.

I’m glad we live during a time that so much is known about hormones and I’m even more elated that there is something we can do about it.

I know I’ve said a mouthful, but it needed to be said. Estrogen dominance/progesterone deficiency can cause bipolar disorder. And if your bipolar disorder is caused by this deficiency, it can be managed and you don’t have to live with the disease anymore.

If you have any questions, leave a comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.

Best of luck to you!

I started this blog nearly 7 years ago to be a resource to people who have hormone-based mental illness as I had. Hormones and mental health is something that is not talked about much, but it should be. It’s well known that PMS and PMDD are caused by hormones changes. It’s well documented that birth control pills can cause mental health problems. We also know that women who have challenging postpartum periods can develop bipolar disorder, clinical depression and psychosis. These illnesses/symptoms develop in women without any prior mental health problems.

It’s time. It’s time for hormone based mental illness to be treated in this generation. We shouldn’t let this problem linger. What are you doing to bring this problem to an end?

Omega-3 for depression and magnesium to calm anxiety… expert reveals the 7 key nutrients to boost your mental health – and where to find them

Mental Health Comments Off

Many of you ask me what types of vitamins or supplements you should take for your mental health. According to Dr Jerome Sarris, a Senior Research Fellow at The University of Melbourne, omega-3 fatty acids; N-acetyl cysteine (NAC); S-adenosyl methionine (SAMe); zinc; magnesium; vitamin D; and B vitamins (including folic acid) are the best supplements for your mental health. Below is an excerpt of his Daily Mail article.

***********************************************************

What we eat is vital to our overall health.
The nutrients we consume, as part of our diet, are critical for brain structure and function.
And, as a result they have a potentially profound impact on our mental health, Jerome Sarris, a senior research fellow at the University of Melbourne writes for The Conversation.
An increasingly robust body of research points to the detrimental effect of unhealthy diets and nutrient deficiencies.
And it highlights the protective value of healthy diets – along with select nutritional supplements as required – for maintaining and promoting mental health.
Research literature suggests dietary improvement and nutritional interventions may help reduce the risk, or even arrest the progression, of certain psychiatric disorders.
Clinical studies support the use of certain nutrients, which influence a range of neurochemical activities beneficial for treating mental disorders, as medicinal supplements.
Evidence from clinical research supports the use of several nutritional medicines for certain psychiatric disorders: omega-3 fatty acids; N-acetyl cysteine (NAC); S-adenosyl methionine (SAMe); zinc; magnesium; vitamin D; and B vitamins (including folic acid).
Other natural compounds such as amino acids, plant-based antioxidants and microbiotics – derived from fermented food or laboratory synthesis – are also known to influence brain health.
But while some evidence supports the idea these natural compounds have brain chemical-modulating effects, or a role in treating certain mental disorders, we cannot currently name particular foods as being effective for the treatment of mental illness.
The best nutritional advice at this point is to cultivate an unprocessed wholefood diet, with judicious prescriptive use of nutrients – if required – based on advice from a qualified health professional.

It took some time for Shamma’s family and teachers to understand why she was struggling at school.

“Teachers complained that my daughter fought with other girls because they called her names,” says Shamma’s father, Mohammad Yusuf Mansuri. “The problem got worse. People began saying she had been possessed or fallen under black magic.”

On the brink of despair, Mohammad found hope through a mental health facility in their home state of Gujarat, India, where Shamma was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Here, at last, she was able to get the help she so desperately needed.

Hormone Balance Saved My Life | How I Recovered from Bipolar Disorder

Mental Health 21 Comments

Hello, this is Doris here. Many of you have read my story here, but you rarely hear the story of others. I am here to let you know that hormone imbalances can cause bipolar disorder and there are other people who are recovering from mental illness, just as I have. Please read the post below from a woman who did just that.


I am 44 years old and currently work as a Licensed Vocational Nurse. In 1996, my world turned upside down. I suffered a psychotic break and was diagnosed as Bipolar 1. For over 20 years, I suffered from debilitating mood swings. I have tried every psychotropic medication available to me and a few other non-formulary drugs I won’t mention. For years I have struggled to keep a job, a home, a relationship, family ties, or anything resembling a normal life. I have been homeless several times, and suicidal more times than I can count. To make a long story short, I had no life.

After going from one psychiatrist to the next and taking 26 different combinations of meds, I had given up hope. I wasn’t ever going to function normally, or be a proper parent to my kids. I had resigned myself to sleeping all day and worrying all night 24/7, 365 days a year. No one could help me. I was doomed. No one should ever feel like I have felt for most of my life. The pain is so unbearable you just really don’t want to go on.

My 10-year-old son started to notice I wasn’t like other moms. He started to see we weren’t a normal family. He asked so many questions, like: “Why don’t we go to open house or school functions?” My answers never really explained anything. How do you tell your child that mommy is crazy and can’t handle the outside world because her mind is in constant turmoil? You really can’t.

I started to pray for help from anything or anybody. I wanted out of this life if I had to go on like this. I decided I was going to help myself, since no doctor or any of the medications ever could. I started to do research on what really causes bipolar disorder. I figured there just might be someone or something out there that could help me. In the meantime, I started to work on my other health concerns. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome at 14. It causes infertility, hirsutism, weight gain, insulin resistance, and a whole host of other complications. As I began to work on my ailments, I started to see a pattern develop. I began to see a connection with my symptoms of hormonal imbalance and my mental symptoms. A light came on!

One day I said, hey what the heck, and googled all my hormonal symptoms. I coupled those with the bipolar symptoms. Lo and behold — Doris King’s blog popped up. I stayed up all night reading everything she and her followers wrote. My life was being described perfectly through her experience with mental illness, as well as those of her readers. I had found my deliverer — Doris King.

I immediately reached out to her, and to my surprise she answered the same day. She pointed me in the direction of hormonal balance. She suggested books I could read and showed me helpful information. Within 6 months of following her guidance and advice, I was a new person. In 20 years, I hadn’t been able to hold a job — now I am working full time and going to school full time. I cannot tell you how much my life has changed. If you think a hormone imbalance is causing your mental health problems you should look into it. You may get your life back just as I have. God bless you all! D.W. -Arizona

Hormone Imbalance, Not Bipolar Disorder | From Psychology Today

Alternative Mental Health Comments Off

Many people diagnosed BPD are NOT, but have hormonal dysregulation syndromes by Jory Goodman M.D.

Over the past several decades psychiatric diagnostic acumen has improved. Diagnostic accuracy has not followed suit. More and more people carry psychiatric diagnoses which are inaccurate and have very negative consequences for their lives. Arguably the most frequent, popular and incorrect diagnose is Bipolar Disorder (BP), in all of its sundry subtypes and flavors. It seems that anyone who is moody, angry, tempermental, objectionable, or who objects to something is BIPOLAR. And the proof is in the treatment. Load them up with cocktails of Seroquel, Depakote, Abilify, Lithium, SSRIs, Klonopin and Trazadone, and, as they become fat and dopey they are no longer sassy. Proof is in the pudding, what?

No, the proof is not in the pudding, or the metabolic syndrome and tardive dyskinesia and sexual dysfunction which encumbers these folks. All that is proven is that one can be obliterated by these cocktails but being zonked by them doesn’t prove Bipolarity. Many of these unfortunates, whom I shan’t address today have ADHD, Anxiety/Panic Disorders, Epilepsy, Personality disorders, drug abuse problems and bad attitudes. Some just don’t go with the flow so, obviously there must be something wrong with them. Not.

I now have a sufficient database to report that a significant subset of BP patients are not BP at all but have gonadal hormone problems. Correct identification and treatment of these imbalances stabilize the patients and refute the purported BP (although I do not know how to get the incorrect diagnoses out of insurance records and undo the damage to these peoples lives). This occurs in men and women.

Ladies first: There are two subgroups here; really, really bad PMS and really, really bad PMS in conjunction with Stein-Leventhal Syndrome (PCOS-PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome).

Most of these women are diagnosed at relatively early ages, but after menarche. Indeed they have florid mood swings, affective dysregulation, depression, impulsivity, suicidal gestures…the whole gamut. True psychotic symptoms are rare. And yes, they come to me on one of the cocktails du jour. Many do meet criteria for ADHD and PLMD (Periodic Limb Movement Disorder) but these have always been subordinate to the horrible, Rapid Cycling BP.

Careful history, often with input from parents, partners or spouses reveals–here’s the surprise–that the patient’s cycling correlates closely with her menstrual cycle. In fact, that’s when her BP is harder to control. My impression then becomes, Hmm…

I won’t go into a discussion of hormone cycling, enzymes and neurotransmitters now, but will put some references at the end. In short, after careful evaluation and consideration I detoxify these women from their toxic cocktails. It is difficult and often frightening. But once SSRIs and and dopamine blocking agents are gone, the super-sensitization of the dopamine pathways have cooled-off a tailored titration onto a pulse pattern of Wellbutrin controls the PMS and BP disappears. Imagine that!

No, every woman diagnosed with BP who has PMS does not fit this paradigm, just many of them. Something to consider.

The women with PCOS and BP often haven’t been diagnosed with PCOS yet. Some have. PCOS is characterized by irregular, painful menses, elevated testosterones, masculinization, hirsutism, weight gain and many other features in varying degree. Insulin resistance and Diabetes Mellitus is common. In the patients they may have significant internal hormone fluctuations without the manifestations of a period–menses. Thus it is necessary to get long and careful histories, keep calendars, get hormone assays at “different” times and then decide about treatment. By the bye, most medications for BP cause weight gain and some directly increase blood glucose and all of this is quite bad for a patient with PCOS.

In selected cases the BP meds are withdrawn. The metabolic issues must be addressed; control and suppress androgens to normal female levels, control blood glucose and insulin. Then address the PMS. AS noted above this usually can be accomplished with Wellbutrin, but is some cases wherein the fluctuations are so erratic and unpredictable that a pulse pattern cannot be established effectively Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) are used because it is the surge in MAO that occurs abruptly when a woman’s estrogen drops (and the MAO is the enzyme that degrades all biogenic amines–dopamine, serotonin, noradrenalin, et. al.) and induces the miserable moodiness and symptoms of PMS mistakenly called BP in these cases.

Now the men: this has been more subtle and took longer to clarify. Men have estrogen just as women have testosterone. Testosterone is metabolized into estrogen! I posited years ago that a subset of men are exceedingly rapid metabolizers of testosterone into estrogen (and also some may over-produce it intrinsically). A recent article in the “New England Journal of Medicine” confirmed my supposition.

Anyhow, I figured this one out backwards. After seeing a series of men with putative BP, on all of the usual drugs, I discerned a pattern of diminished libido, sexual dysfunction, subtle feminization and often new and strange sexual thoughts and fantasies. This was always called a medication side effect. However evaluation of hormone levels revealed relative to absolute hypogonadism. I do not attribute the finding to the psychiatric drugs because I have also seen several men who presented with first depressive episodes and no prior treatment with the same features. And their estrogens were usually high normal or abnormal.

But let’s stick with the BP. Finally off psych meds and on testosterone replacement some interesting things happened. Their moodiness, irritability, insomnia, and other symptoms resolved as they were re-masculinized and estrogen levels fell. Some of the time.

A sub-group that has been most fascinating are the super fast metabolizers. When give transdermal testosterone daily the were feminized by immediate conversion to estrogen. This was not considered a good result by the men and their wives. Use of injectable long-acting, slow-release testosterone worked, but not in the traditional 200 mg in the tush every two weeks. After a sufficient duration of treatment (in testosterone replacement therapy blood levels can rise swiftly in a few weeks but clinical response can take three months or more) they began to cycle again, often worse. This has been called ‘roid rage’ from excessive testosterone but in fact the trouble occurred as the testosterone wore off and the estrogen rose dramatically. A sort of male PMS. At first we addressed this by increasing frequency of injection, usually with a lower dose (100 mg or each time). The result would be an individualized but predicable cycle; 3-6 good days followed by the crash. Yet testosterone levels were pretty even. The estrogen levels were cycling down after an injection and skyrocketed with the crash! Eureka.

These men require estrogen blockers, which I leave to my endocrinology colleagues. It is fascinating to extrapolate back and wonder how man of these men had excessive estrogen and/or rapid metabloism that precipitated both the spurious diagnosis of BP and caused the hypogonadism

Be advised, most physicians have no idea what I’m writing about. They need to catch up. For more of my writing on these topics you may go to:

Have You Heard of Vitex (Chasteberry)??

Alternative Mental Health, Mental Health Comments Off

A woman asked me recently if I had ever heard of Vitex and if so, what my thoughts on it were. I had never heard of Vitex/Chasteberry before she mentioned it, but after doing some research, I became instantly intrigued. Vitex has been clinically proven to increase progesterone levels by suppressing excessive prolactin levels. An herb that naturally increases progesterone levels! This is wonderful. Often times, women with low progesterone are prescribed birth control pills, Motrin, psychiatric medications, but rarely is hormone balance explored or herbal supplements that aid in hormone balance.

I’m excited to try this herb. Have you tried it before? Biomedical literature shows that Vitex exerts its therapeutic influence in the body by lowering prolactin. High prolactin can suppress ovulation and interfere with progesterone synthesis after ovulation. So if you know for a fact that your prolactin levels are interfering with your cycle Vitex may be a supplement worth exploring.

Are you currently taking Vitex? If so, what has been your experience with it good and bad? I want to hear from you! I plan on trying the herb and will be sure to update the blog once I do.

El desequilibrio hormonal puede causar la enfermedad mental

Mental Health Comments Off

El difunto Dr. John Lee fue un visionario. Reconoció la dominación del estrógeno era condición de que millones de hombres y mujeres tenían, pero que rara vez estaba siendo tratada o reconocido por la comunidad médica. Pero sólo porque algo no se reconoce, eso no significa que no exista.

La dominación del estrógeno es una condición que el Dr. Lee acuñó. Es una condición en la que opera el estrógeno en el cuerpo sin cantidades suficientes de progesterona para equilibrarlo. Así estrógeno dominancia y la deficiencia de progesterona puede usarse indistintamente.

Es una condición que yo tenía y que ahora me las arreglo, gracias a la ayuda del Dr. Lee.

Tenía 19 años cuando me diagnosticaron trastorno bipolar. Y la única razón por la que fui al médico fue porque yo había dejado de bañarse y cepillarse los dientes. Fui al médico por ninguna otra razón.

Llamé a mi médico de familia para discutir mis problemas de higiene y me dijeron que estaba siendo referido a un especialista. No tenía ni idea del especialista fue un psiquiatra y que mi vida estaba a punto de cambiar para siempre.

Me río ahora porque está claro. Estaba siendo referido a un psiquiatra porque mi médico sabía que yo estaba mentalmente enfermo, pero yo no lo sabía.

Finalmente me hice a mi cita de referencia y le dije a mi psiquiatra cómo yo estaba teniendo problemas de bañarse y cepillarse los dientes y para dormir. Le dije lo deprimido que estaba y cómo lloré todo el tiempo y cómo deseaba que estaba muerto.

Ella me preguntó si algo estresante o trágico había sucedido en mi vida recientemente para causar estos sentimientos. Le dije “no”. Mi vida no era perfecta, pero nada me había sucedido para justificar esos sentimientos.

Así que era eso. Hablamos y yo queríamos morir.

Después de que hablamos, ella salió de su oficina y regresó con una almohadilla folleto y prescripción.

Ella me preguntó si alguna vez había oído hablar de trastorno bipolar y ella dijo que la razón por la que ella había pedido era porque eso es lo que tenía.

Ella me dijo que tenía trastorno bipolar como si hubiera ganado un premio. Al igual que había elegido la cortina a la derecha en “Hagamos un trato” y un coche nuevo y brillante estaba esperando en mí.

Estaba enfermo. Un pedazo de mí murió.
Quería volver el tiempo atrás. Me hubiera gustado que nunca había ido al médico.
Quería volver a ser esa chica despreocupada que no estaba bañando o cepillarse los dientes, pero al menos ella pensaba que era saludable.

Hubiera dado cualquier cosa por ser esa chica otra vez.

Así que a partir de ese momento, me convertí decidido a negar mi enfermedad. Suprimí todos los recuerdos de ese día cada vez que se levantó.

Corrí.

El doctor me dio receta para Zoloft. Me tragué una pastilla y tiraba el resto por el retrete. Ella me dijo que hacer una cita para verla de nuevo en dos semanas. Yo, básicamente, le dije a besarme donde el sol no brillaba y salté por la puerta.

Estaba naufragio.

Yo no estoy en contra de la psiquiatría o psiquiatras, yo era sólo miedo de tomar medicamentos potentes cuando nadie sabía realmente lo que estaba causando mi trastorno bipolar.

Y así lo hice correr más. Tuve un ataque de nervios.
Estaba alcohol envenenado dos veces. Hospitalizado una vez.
Tuve, sexo azar salvaje. Yo estaba viviendo en el borde.
Mis pensamientos corrían tan rápido que saltan fuera de mi cerebro. Yo estaba en el espacio exterior.
Me dolía la cabeza tan mal que pensé que estaba teniendo aneurismas.
Odiaba mi vida.

Y luego estaban los fantasmas que me visitaban cada noche. Howling lado de mi cama mientras yo trataba de dormir.

Me gustaría dormir con las luces o la televisión sobre y yo tocaba música fuerte como para ahogar a cabo.

Esta era mi rutina nocturna por más de 14 años.

Ahora miro atrás y digo, que estaba alucinando. Pero en ese momento, yo no sabía lo que estaba pasando. Yo supuse que estaba maldito y que Dios me odiaba.

¿Sabes lo horrible que se siente a pensar que el Creador del universo te odia tanto que permite a los demonios que atormentan a usted?

No es divertido, pero era la única manera de que pudiera darle sentido.

Fue sólo después de que mis hormonas se convirtieron equilibrada que me di cuenta que no estaba maldito y que finalmente experimenté alivio de todos estos síntomas.

Así que a los 28, estuve enfermo y en paro. Tuve que enfrentar mi enfermedad y la discapacidad * * encogerse archivo para que no me quedado sin hogar.

Yo no quiero ser 28 y los discapacitados. Quería estar bebiendo margaritas en la playa, no soñando con maneras de matar a mí mismo.

Yo estaba en mi trasero y yo decidí que me iba a dejar de correr y hablar con mi Hacedor.

Una cosa que esta enfermedad hizo por mí es que me hizo sentir más cerca de Dios, porque muchos días yo sabía que él era el único que sabía cómo me sentía. Me aislaba La enfermedad de familiares y amigos y, a veces me sentía separado de mi propio cuerpo.

Recé a Dios y dije: “Dios, sé que me hiciste y Tú lo sabes todo sobre mí. Y sabes que estoy enfermo. Si está en tu voluntad para mí la muerte por enfermedad, te prometo que no voy a tratar de suicidarme más, pero por favor, dame la gracia y la fuerza para soportarlo. Pero si yo no tengo que estar enfermo y no hay una manera que puedo ser saludable, por favor, muéstrame el camino. ”

Y lo hizo.

Poco después de mi oración asistí a la conferencia de la salud de la mujer y había una enfermera que se presentó allí. Recuerdo que hablaba de un estilo de vida saludable que incluye una dieta equilibrada y el ejercicio.

Después de la expo visité las mesas y las cabinas que se establecieron y llenaron mi bolsa con los regalos gratis que tenían.

Cuando llegué a casa, me deshice de mi botín en el suelo y miró a todas las tazas, lápices, cuadernos y bolígrafos que había recibido. Y hay un panfleto que había tirado en el bolso también. El folleto decía: “Los signos y síntomas del síndrome premenstrual.”

Los síntomas leyeron:
* Depresión
* Irritabilidad
* Cambios De Humor
* Llorando
* Distensión
* Dolores de cabeza
* Fatiga
* Problemas de concentración

Después de leer la lista le dije: “Tengo todos estos síntomas veces infinito.”

Sabía PMS era hormonal y por lo que pensé que lo que yo estaba tratando con fue hormona relacionada también.

Cada vez que investigó las hormonas y el nombre del desequilibrio hormonal Dr. Lee siempre se acercó. Estaba claro que era la autoridad en el tema y que si quería saber sobre el equilibrio hormonal, necesitaba leer su obra.

Y así lo hice. Fui a mi librería local de Frontera y compré un ejemplar de su libro, “Hormone Equilibrio Fabricado Simple “y lo leyó en una noche.

Leyendo el libro del Dr. Lee era como respirar aire fresco. Yo había sospechado durante mucho tiempo mis hormonas estaban vinculados a mis estados de ánimo, pero cada vez que compartieron mis sospechas con mi médico, si era mi ginecólogo o psiquiatra que todos, pero se rió en mi cara.

Y aquí estaba el doctor me dice cómo desequilibrio hormonal puede causar enfermedad mental y física y que dio instrucciones sobre cómo arreglarlo Lee.

Paso 1) era tomar hormonas sólo si los necesitaba, Paso 2) era tomar hormonas bioidénticas en lugar de los sintéticos y Paso 3) Estuve a tomar hormonas en cantidades fisiológicas únicas (las cantidades que el cuerpo produce naturalmente cuando está sano).

Seguí el consejo del Dr. Lee y equilibrada mis hormonas y mi trastorno bipolar fue.

En ese momento, no tenía ni idea de mis hormonas estaban causando mis trastorno bipolar, depresión, ansiedad, alucinaciones y manía. Pensé que sólo fueron agravando ella. Me alegré de encontrar que eran la causa.

Hoy en día, sigo a seguir los pasos del Dr. Lee para el equilibrio hormonal. Tomo progesterona 10-14 días al mes dependiendo de los síntomas y el resto es historia.

Me alegro de que vivimos en una época en que tanto se conoce acerca de las hormonas y estoy aún más eufórico que hay algo que podamos hacer al respecto.

Sé que he dicho con la boca llena, pero tenía que ser dicho. La deficiencia de la dominación / progesterona estrógeno puede causar el trastorno bipolar. Y si su trastorno bipolar es causado por esta deficiencia, puede ser gestionado y usted no tiene que vivir con la enfermedad más.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, dejar un comentario o enviar un correo electrónico. Me encantaría saber de usted.

Lo mejor de las suertes a usted!

Doris
