Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Hah sounds fantastic! Funnily enough I go off and on paleo all the time, so I'm all about the bacon! (tho the nitrates scare me) I'll look into getting the book. I had the pregnancy book and it was brilliant. I was using a lot of coconut oil, but then read it was a poly oestrogen, so stopped. Been u...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

I do wonder should I be taking more Vitex? Is there such a thing as too much?

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

I actually tend to agree with the diagnosis. He is a good dr (tho a western dr just the same!). It is based on my luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels, the fact that this is the 3rd cyst I'm having to have surgically removed, all my previous miscarriages, and how hard it was t...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Had an appt with my gynae today. It seems I am not enterting menopause. I have been diagnosed with pcos. So I was not getting periods becuase my hormones were not triggering the egg to drop. Surgery with removal of the ovary is the recommendation. I've been reading a bit about pcos. I worry that rem...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Interesting, becuase I have doubled the dose! I am taking a vogel tincture. It says 15-20 drops twice a day. I am big in research, and looked at alot of forums from women taking it, and I kept noticing people saying the effects could get worse before getting better, and several mentioned that they t...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Small update. As I havnt left the house, I tried a remedy for bleeding I found online. I drank cinnamon tea all day (yogi classic with additional cinnamon sticks in it), and the bleeding has stopped! Also since starting the castor oil packs and vitex, the pain is gone most of the time. Hope this can...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Looking at yarrow, it looks brilliant. I actually think I saw it growing out in the horse pasture. Wouldn't that be handy!

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Just realised moonbathe is moon bathing (blush!) I actually think this is probably quite beneficial, I have great faith in the power if the moon. In saying that, it is _quite_ cold here in Ireland right now! (We won't mention the almost constant rain!). Shepards purse sounds brilliant, I will be get...

Re: Help for Ovarian cyst and heavy bleeding

Hi all, Thanks for the replies. As my blood tests came back oestrogen heavy, I'm avoiding anything with natural oestrogen. When I got the hot flashes I was super over doing soy, perhaps that kicked this off, not sure. There are a lot if theories that being copper heavy causes oestrogen dominance and...
