Beginning Menopause, Acne, Hormones, Vitex, Herbs and food

Postby Allie » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:49 pm

Susun answers a question from a woman on blog talk radio experiencing diarrhea, cystic acne and fluctuating hormones due to beginning menopause. Susun talks about the three cycles of women's lives, maiden, mother and crone. Susun talks about the 29 estrogens women produce our whole lives and at puberty a 30th kind of estrogen comes into play, estradiol. She talks about when estradiol comes into play, when it's at it's peak and as it tapers off into menopause. This woman is drinking her nourishing herbal infusions, eats whole foods and avoids refined sugars. Susun talks about using yarrow tincture to kill bacteria on face that cause acne. She talks about luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones that increase during menopause, stopping red clover infusion during that time and using vitex to slow the process of these hormones down to lessen the effects of menopausal symptoms. Susun reads from New Menopausal Years recommending phytoestrogenic herbs and estrogenic food like herbs. Susun says to keep it simple! :arrow: Listen to the Q&A

I can't listen to this for some reason (technology!). Can you please comment on why she says to stop red clover infusions?

I've found that with meno I've had to make changes to my diet (induced menopause), I can't eat what I used to, even good healthful foods.
Its like I'm a whole new woman :D

Hi Jae Lily,

What is confusing you? From what I understand, when we go through menopause, other than estradial, all our other hormones are heightened in their production. Red clover tends to increase our hormones, and so, if I may deduct, will heighten the hormones even more. So, we do not want to take red clover, or we'll go even more insane. :twisted: What I'm not sure, in reading other articles of Susun's, is if that means not to take it at all, or just not very often?
