CAN YOU COMBINE PROTOCOLS? OR SHOULD YOU TAKE EACH REMEDY SEPARATELY?
When it became known to us that so many of you suffer from more than one cycle related ailment, we crafted our treatments so that they can be taken together if needed. BALANCE is really thought of as a baseline regiment because regardless of all other symptoms, it helps the body balance and detoxify.
With severe acne and period pains, it’s recommended to take CLEAR and FLOW together for maximum effect. However, one can take any of the treatments individually.
HOW LONG SHOULD I DO THE TREATMENT TO GET LONG TERM BENEFITS?
For the BALANCE and CLEAR regiment: We recommend taking them for a minimum of 2 months, but for the best results 3 months. A follicle needs exactly 3 months (in a healthy environment, without inflammation) to grow. Your body needs those 3 months to renew its system. That means that after starting our E-Book and treatment, there will start to be a clear improvement of ovulation and cycle. But it does not mean that symptoms will disappear right away. :)
The FLOW infusion is our herbal tea that fights painful periods.To maximize its effectiveness, we recommend drinking it during the second half of your cycle, particularly when physical signs (like bloating, water retention, painful breasts) of PMS are present. That means you can start the regiment a week before your period and continue during your period.
If you have persistent cycle related pain, like endometriosis, take a break for one week. Preferably the week after your period and before ovulation.
HOW LONG DO THE TREATMENTS WORK?
Our treatments tackle all the problems related to hormonal imbalances. In our E-Book “The 28 Day Method” you can find all the wisdom, tips and tricks to understand and, above all, master your hormonal imbalances.
Our pills aren’t pills (like, for example, Ibuprofen) that work “wonders” by simply masking symptoms. Our supplements are 100% vegan, filled with plants and minerals that help your body and your hormones to come back into balance and to find the root of your symptoms and heal them and to prevent them in the future. Sustainable change has to come from within and can’t be supplied from outside. That’s also a reason why the nutrition and lifestyle tips included in the E-Book are crucial to achieving long term benefits for the health of your hormones.
WHAT’S THE EXACT DOSAGE OF THE TREATMENTS?
For the BALANCE and CLEAR regiments: 2 capsules a day, with a meal and a glass of water (water isn’t just necessary for swallowing the capsules but also to maximize your body’s ability to absorb them) It’s suggested to take the capsules for a minimum of 2 months, for best results 3 months.
For the FLOW herbal tea mix: we recommend 2 infusions (1 infusion = 1 tea strainer spoon) per day, begin drinking it one week before your period and continue during your period.
WHAT AGE CAN YOU START THE REGIMENTS?
The hormonal part of the female cycle sets in about 5 years after your first period, that means that certain issues/ailments at the beginning of menstruation can actually be totally natural so we suggest to start working with our treatments once the hormonal cycle begins.
CAN YOU USE THE TREATMENTS WITH THE PILL OR OTHER HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL METHODS?
“I think I have PMS but I’m on the pill/use an IUD/hormonal birth control, can I use these treatments?”
The odds of it being PMS are pretty small, it’s far more likely that it has to do with the side effects of hormonal birth control. The symptoms can look similar, but the cause is completely different, and for these reasons our treatments would not work in this case.
What we do suggest however is to speak with a doctor/gynecologist to change your dose or possibly even change your type of birth control.
Our CLEAR treatment for hormonal related acne and our FLOW treatment for period pain relief can be used in all cases, even while taking hormones.
ARE THE TREATMENTS COMPATIBLE WITH MEDICAL TREATMENTS/HORMONE THERAPY/EX-BREAST CANCER/ANTI-HORMONE DIET?
Our treatments are made of plant extracts,vitamins and minerals. They’re filled with positive attributes and basically have no (comparable to medication) side effects. However the plants can interact with any current medical treatments you may be on and can lower their effectiveness or heighten their side effects.
The list of ingredients can be found on our other blog article or on our website.
Generally, if you’re currently in any sort of medical treatment, you should get advice from a doctor or pharmacist before taking any sort of dietary supplement or medicinal herbs.
CAN YOU TAKE THE TREATMENTS WHILE COMING OFF OF THE PILL/HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL?
Absolutely! Because of rebound effects, coming off the pill can lead to so-called “withdrawal symptoms” or lead to underlying hormonal imbalance that may have been previously hidden by birth control.
Examples of this: acne, hair loss, increased porosity, recurring menstruation as well as the return of period pain, premenstrual symptoms and the like.
After coming off the pill, the combination of BALANCE and CLEAR can help you seamlessly find your way back to your natural cycle and avoid unwanted symptoms, or treat already present ones.
DO THE TREATMENTS HELP WITH (PERI) MENOPAUSAL AILMENTS?
Absolutely! The BALANCE regiment can help ease symptoms of hormone decline during perimenopause and menopause like hot flashes, sleeplessness, loss of libidio etc.
Black cohosh and Rhodiola in particular help with easing hot flashes and mood swings. Magnesium and Vitamin B6 work to combat exhaustion and contribute towards a more energetic metabolism. Ginkgo Biloba can ease breast and anxiety issues and monk's pepper helps with regulating estrogen, which can fluctuate a lot during this phase of life.
DO THE TREATMENTS ALSO WORK FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Endometriosis is a gynecological illness that has many underlying factors. However, you can ease certain symptoms with the help of certain treatments, especially symptoms with hormonal origins like premenstrual symptoms (mood swings, exhaustion, migraines, bloating…) and an irregular cycle. The underlying condition of hormonal imbalances is often involved in making endometriosis related pains worse. Our treatments can be unbelievably helpful for this.
With endometriosis, we suggest combining BALANCE (contains magnesium, a natural muscle relaxer) + the FLOW herbal tea (pain relieving in relation to periods and thus targets connected symptoms).
DO THE TREATMENTS WORK FOR POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a gynecological illness that has many causes and no known cure. However, what is known is that in many instances PCOS can lead to an overproduction of androgens. Androgens belong to the same hormone group as testosterone and can lead to symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, hirsutism and alopecia. Our CLEAR regiment deals with this overproduction and really can lead to an improvement of PCOS symptoms. Combining it with the BALANCE regiment will make it even more effective, as it helps hormones and your cycle come into balance.
