Thank you for visiting this website!
Hi! I’m Linda Rola, webmaster and editor of this website. I value my health and well-being like I’m sure you do…
In my mid 30’s, I had the usual stress, trying to juggle career and family with little time for myself. Weight gain, mood swings, headaches and PMS symptoms seemed to be a regular part of my life. I got pregnant the first month we tried but then in my fourth month I miscarried – this was a most difficult time!
During the next few years I began to notice my body was changing. I started losing the hair on my head and began growing it on my FACE! YUK! I knew something wasn’t right but I couldn’t quite figure out what was going on…
Synthetic hormone replacement therapy was out of the question for me. Too many of my friends had tried it. And the HRT side effects were often as bad or worse than the symptoms that the HRT was supposed to treat based on the stories my friends told me!
Luckily, a friend kept telling me about her experience with natural progesterone supplementation.
My doctor didn’t seem to know much about natural progesterone except he did know that it was pretty safe.
I got a copy of Dr. John Lee’s book What Your Doctor May NOT Tell You About Menopause.
As I read it, I began to better understand how both ESTROGEN and PROGESTERONE are needed to maintain HORMONE BALANCE and how progesterone production depends on ovulation. Now in my early 40’s, I was not ovulating every month even though my menstrual periods still came.
As I continued to read Dr. Lee’s book, I began to understand what was wrong with me and how I needed to begin replacing the progesterone that my body was no longer making. It seemed too easy and too good to be true!
As I started my natural progesterone supplementation, I immediately felt a sense of calmness. My PMS and mood swings were eliminated within a month. And over the next few weeks I noticed that I stopped losing my hair! And within a year, my facial hair was gone!
During the next 2-3 years, I started experiencing some vaginal dryness which means my estrogen production had been fluctuating. Using the “natural estrogen” products – Remifemin, the Emerita Estrogen Body Cream or black cohosh – solved this problem.
I have to say “THANK YOU” to Dr. Lee, Dr. Northrup and other physicians who are helping so many of us know how to stay energetic and free from those “menopause problems”.
And I’ve wanted to share with other women what I’ve learned about going through “the change” –
Use this site to help you understand how estrogen and progesterone should be working in your body. Understanding THAT can help you achieve hormonal balance and move you toward the wellness YOU DESERVE.
And for hormone replacement – use natural hormones, the same as your body makes, not the synthetic hormones with their risks and side effects.
I’d love to hear about your experience with natural progesterone, natural estrogen, your regaining hormonal balance and how doing so has helped you achieve the health and enjoyment you want in your life again.
Again, a very warm welcome to you!
