Hello, I have considered trying this for PMS and for PPD when I have my next babe.I struggled for a few months after the last baby.
Has anyone tried it?
Are there any ill effects of natural progesterone type products? I am concerned because my mother used a progesterone cream for a little bit and I witnessed it quite litterally sag and thin her skin in the places she used it.
My doctor also mentioned a product called SAMe when I talked to her about wanting to do something about my PMS...has anyone used that?

Hello, I reread the chapter by Pearl on hormones and there is a warning against using products derived from wild yams. The progesserone PLus serum by Young Living that I had considered is derived from wild yams and although is is backed by two Drs, one with research on hormones, and advertised as bioidentical, I am considering another route.
I went to my doctor to get a script for bloodwork, but I walked out without it. When I meantioned the oil it was suggested that I just try it and see if it works. I should have been more diligent about getting the bloodwork script but I was not. Now I am concerned about the cost of going back again to get what I came for in the first place.
I am also wondering if my symtoms are more low estrogen vs low progesterone now.
So I am wondering if I should go back for the script or just buy some Emerita online and Estriol and see what if any work for me?
asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?

steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
