If you have experienced .
you may be experiencing Hormone Imbalance in your Body!
The above symptoms have been identified due to excessive Estrogen in a woman's Body. Many women have reversed the above symptoms and found relief by using Herbal Dietary Supplements like Wild Yam and Hormone Balance; and have made Dietary changes in their daily food intake to include Soy Beans, Sesame Seeds and other sources of Natural Calcium. This has helped to re-establish the Natural Hormone Balance in their bodies: Naturally.
What is Hormone Imbalance ?
Hormone Imbalance is an important health issue for women today. Hormone Imbalance can adversely affect a woman in any season of her life, from her cycling years, through menopause, and into the postmenopausal years. Contributing factors include prescriptive Synthetic Hormones (with undesirable side effects), foreign Estrogen prevalent in our diet and environment and improper use or misapplication of Natural Progesterone Creams.
In order to understand how Hormone Imbalance begins, it is useful to look at the normal menstrual cycle (see chart given overleaf).
Estrogen dominates the first half of the menstrual cycle and prepares the ovaries for ovulation. It also causes the buildup of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Estrogen further prepares the body to sustain another life by triggering the storage of fat, water, sodium, fiber, and other nutrients. Estrogen levels peak, mid cycle, at ovulation.
Hormone Imbalance in most women today are the result of Estrogen levels becoming excessive and / or Progesterone levels becoming deficient. Problems can begin when the stored fat, fiber, water, and nutrient buildup (produced by Estrogen) are not regularly and sufficiently eliminated. Eventually, this can lead to problems such as bloating, water retention, weight gain (refer Appendix "A" for Positive Weight Release), depression, fibroids, etc. This phenomenon, known as Estrogen Dominance, has become widespread in recent decades due to extreme changes in the lifestyle and environment of women in the industrialized world.
As women of all ages become increasingly aware of these problems, many are finding that they feel healthier, more energetic and younger when they address their Hormone changes with gentle, Natural Herbal Dietary Supplements.
How do Women Become Estrogen Dominant ?
Our Environment and Food: Today we are continuously surrounded by new environmental compounds called xenoestrogens. Xenoestrogens, which are primarily petrochemical, have a very potent estrogen - like activity. They are in our air, fuels, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, clothing, bug / mosquito sprays and personal care products.
Our diet is also contaminated with Hormones. Synthetic Estrogens are now used to fatten cattle, as well as other meat-producing animals, and to increase milk and egg production. Most of us are ingesting Hormones in many of our meals.
Use of Synthetic
Estrogens: Estrogen dominance problems can be exacerbated by the use
of Synthetic Estrogens in the form of birth control or hormone replacement
pills. Synthetic Hormones have molecular structures that are not compatible
with our physiology. We do not have enzymes designed to modify their
effects, nor can they be efficiently excreted.
Therefore, these synthetics can have an unnatural and far more potent hormonal effect on our body systems than Natural Hormones.
Not Ovulating: Women in their early to mid thirties, as they begin to approach menopause, have an increased frequency of anovulatory cycles, that is, cycles in which ovulation does not take place. ( Women may continue to have periods even though they may not be ovulating.) When ovulation does not occur, no Progesterone is produced by the ovaries. Premenopausal women may therefore experience some of the estrogen dominance symptoms (described on the previous page) because they may not be producing the levels of Progesterone needed to balance the effect of Estrogen. Use a Fertility Thermometer to check your date of ovulation.
Menopause: It is a little known fact that Estrogen levels in women whose ovaries are no longer functioning will remain at approximately 40% of their former levels. This is because most women continue to produce estrogen by conversion of androgens (derived from the adrenal gland) into estrogen in the fat cells. Progesterone levels, however, drop to almost zero (1/120 of the former levels).
Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance
Allergies, Breast tenderness, decreased sex drive, depression, fatigue, fibrocystic breasts, foggy thinking, increased risk of stroke, infertility, miscarriage, PMS, rapid increase in weight, uterine cancer and fibroids to name a few.
If the body has a proper balance of Progesterone to Estrogen, many of these symptoms as well as menopausal symptoms can be alleviated.
What is Progesterone ?
Progesterone is one of the primary sex Hormones produced by women. Its major role is to promote the survival and development of the embryo. The healthy premenopausal female produces approximately 20 to 24 milligrams of Progesterone a day for about 12 days each month after ovulation. If conception does not take place, Progesterone levels drop and her period will generally start within 48 hours. If pregnancy occurs, Progesterone levels rise during pregnancy to aid in the development of a healthy fetus.
Natural Progesterone can be produced in the Body by intake of a Herbal Dietary Supplement called Wild Yam and eating Soy Bean rich foods. Wild Yam and Soy contain Diosgenin which when digested are converted by the Body into Progesterone. Since the Body has its own intelligence and knows how much Progesterone is required by it, there is no chance of excessive Progesterone being produced and causing any side effects in the Body. The use of Synthetic or Natural Progesterone treatment is plagued by the problems of deciding the correct dose and the days of application. Herbal Dietary Supplements like Wild Yam and foods like Soy Beans do not have these problems as the Body itself regulates the digestion and absorption of these foods and takes from them exactly what ever it needs and the rest gets eliminated from the Body as waste matter in due course.
Natural Progesterone generated inside the Body can help to decrease the symptoms and discomfort associated with Estrogen Dominance (and / or Progesterone deficiency). Natural Progesterone produced in our Body is better, safer, and does not have the side effects associated with Synthetic Hormones or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Yet, because natural substances cannot be patented, pharmaceutical companies choose to market the synthetic Hormones and Hormone Replacement Therapies and Programs.
Natural Progesterone Restores Balance of Body & Mind
Biochemically, Natural Progesterone provides the raw materials inside the Body from which all other Steroid Hormones are made. It is the precursor for testosterone, DHEA, cortisone, estrogen and salt-regulating aldosterone, etc. (as illustrated below). Natural Progesterone, therefore, has a balancing effect on the entire body. As a precursor, it gives the metabolism the flexibility it needs to create harmony in the dynamic, fluctuating system of the body. Our metabolism can synthesize from Natural Progesterone the other steroids it needs on a minute to minute basis. On the other hand, Synthetic Progesterone cannot act with the flexibility of a precursor and this is one reason they produce side effects. Furthermore, because Natural Progesterone can convert into Estrogen, it is often all that many women will need.
Natural Progesterone increases the communication between the Endocrine organs in the brain and the ovaries. It gives women that sense of well being and control. It allows a woman the ability to age slowly and naturally and make comfortable transitions from puberty through menopause and beyond.
Natural Progesterone Stimulates Bone Building
In order to understand bone loss, it is important to understand bone physiology. There are two types of bone cells. Osteoclast cells dissolve or reabsorb the old bone, and Osteoblasts then move in and produce new bone. This mechanism provides our bodies with the ability to continually replace, repair, and strengthen our bones. Bone mass begins to decline in women during their early to mid thirties, and accelerates during menopause. It was theorized, therefore, that bone loss is associated with the decline in hormones which leads to menopause. In the 1970's Estrogen was found to somewhat restrain Osteoclast function and therefore to lessen or slow down bone loss. Research has now revealed that Natural Progesterone stimulates Osteoblast bone building. Thus, while Estrogen only slows bone loss, Natural Progesterone can actually help to rebuild it.
If your recent Bone Density Test shows loss of Bone mass, the same can be easily reversed by taking Herbal Dietary Supplement Wild Yam. Also make Dietary corrections to include Natural sources of Calcium as per Dietary Recommendations given later on in this article.
After a few weeks of taking Wild Yam, you may be surprised to find that, while you don't look and feel fatter; and though your clothes fit you just fine, your weighing scale shows that you weigh 5 to 10 lbs. / 2 to 5 Kgs. More!
Please don't be alarmed, be happy, heave a sigh of relief that your Bone Density is going up and your bones are now heavier than before. This is a sure sign of reversal of Osteoporosis. Within a few years of Menopause many women have easily lost 30% bone density or weight.
Research shows that the use of Synthetic Estrogen can increase a women's risk of fibrocystic breast, edema, uterine fibroids, endometrial cancer and breast cancer. An article in The Wall Street Journal, dated June 17th, 1995, states that a new Harvard study of long term Estrogen users found that Estrogen users have a 32% higher risk of developing Breast Cancer. Women taking Synthetic Estrogen should consider this information carefully, especially in view of the fact that many women find relief from symptoms using Natural Progesterone alone.
For women who are taking Estrogen, and considering supplementing with natural Progesterone, it is important to understand that the Progesterone can sensitize Estrogen receptor sites and consequently Estrogen Dominance symptoms may initially increase. Dr. Lee, therefore, recommends that women taking Estrogen reduce their dosage by one half when they begin taking Wild Yam to synthesize Natural Progesterone inside their bodies. Many women continue to taper off slowly, and find, as Natural Progesterone sensitizes the Estrogen receptors, that their body's own Estrogen has become sufficient.
Some women, especially those whose ovaries have been removed, may overcome Estrogen dominance with the use of Natural Progesterone in the first or second month. They may need to add supplementation with natural Estrogen for which we recommend the use of our Hormone Balance Dietary Supplement in conjunction with Wild Yam.
Estrogen Dominance & Thyroid Function
Estrogen causes food calories to be stored as fat. Thyroid Hormone causes fat calories to be turned into usable energy. Thyroid Hormone and Estrogen therefore have opposing actions.
Estrogen dominance inhibits Thyroid action and lowers the rate of metabolism of the Body. Natural Progesterone inhibits Estrogen action.
The symptoms of Hypothyroidism occur because of Estrogen dominance (deficiency of Progesterone). Hypothyroidism, which results in weight gain and a host of other symptoms, can be corrected by the presence of Natural Progesterone in the body.
Many other presumed Thyroid dysfunctions (like falling hair, water retention, loss of memory, dry skin) and Autoimmune Disorders are actually caused by Estrogen Dominance.
The crucial nutrient for Thyroid Hormone synthesis in the body is Iodine. Herbal Dietary Supplements like Kelp are a rich source of natural Iodine.
Kelp can therefore increase the Rate of Metabolism of the body and result in corresponding weight reduction. Please refer Appendix "A" on Positive Weight Release.
Other Dietary Herbal Supplements like Super Slim Fast, Slim Excel, Fenugreek, Fat Burner and CelluLite are also effective for efficient weight release.
Success in effective Weight Release can occur once Hormonal Imbalance in the Body is corrected and proper Detoxification and Rejuvenation of the Body is done to increase the Rate of Metabolism.
EndoCare is a Herbal Dietary Supplement which helps to Rejuvenate the glands of the entire Endocrine System so that the body begins to naturally generate its own Hormones.
This is intended to offer general instructions for the use of Natural Herbal Dietary Supplements and Herbal Oils. It is important to understand that every woman is different, and her hormone levels are unique. We offer these suggestions as a starting point for experimentation to discover what works best for you. Nothing stated here is intended as a treatment for any disease or illness, and should not take the place of consulting a nutritionally conscious, informed physician.
Many women using these guidelines discover that they experience almost immediate results. Others report results after one, two or three weeks, and some women do not see significant results until they have gone through two to three monthly cycles. Most women who use these Herbal Dietary Supplements regularly and consistently for a sufficient length of time, experience the relief they desire.
Periods are considered irregular if the normal 4 day typical flow you had when you were a teenager has now reduced to 2 days and/or the quantity of flow has reduced substantially. Alternatively, periods are considered irregular if the normal 28 day typical cycle has moved substantially or is erratic in nature.
When periods are irregular there is a distinct possibility that Ovulation is not occurring, no Progesterone is being produced and Estrogen levels are remaining high.
A simple method to verify if ovulation is occurring, is to use a Fertility Thermometer to find the date of ovulation, which is normally the 14th day after periods commence.
If you have irregular Periods, a Hormone Imbalance has begun to occur in your Body.
We have two Herbal Dietary Supplements PMS and Super PMS which can be used in case of Irregular periods.
Wild Yam is also known to be beneficial Herbal Dietary Supplement for painful menstruation, ovarian pain and cramps.
WaterX is another Herbal Dietary Supplement which can be used to combat Water Retention and Bloating in the Body. For cases of severe Water Retention drink GOPU Tea.
If you are contemplating Hysterectomy, due to Cysts and Fibroids in the Uterus you should first consider the use of Herbal Dietary Supplements Cysts and Special Cysts. Once Hysterectomy is performed, the Glands that help produce Estrogen and Progesterone in the body are missing and it will be necessary to take Wild Yam / Soy rich food for a very prolonged period. If unattended to, this Hormonal Imbalance can lead to advanced osteoporosis which can result in breaking of the Hip Bone, which is the weakest bone in a woman's body. The Bones having become brittle as a result of osteoporosis, cannot be mechanically joined and will confine the woman to a wheel chair for life. Taking Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy to correct this situation will not be in the best interest as research has shown that prolonged use of Synthetic Hormones has led to the development of Cysts, Fibroids and Tumors in the Body.
Eat lots of Soy Beans in your daily diet to improve the Hormone Balance of your Body and to reduce the risk of future Osteoporosis. Soy Beans are a rich source of Calcium and can be had in the form of Flour, Granules, Nuggets or plain roasted or salted Beans. Boil fresh Soy Bean Pods in salted water and eat as a snack.
Dried Soy Beans lentils can be soaked overnight in water and/or germinated to be eaten as a salad or cooked as a vegetable. Soy Beans can be ground to flour and added in 20% quantity to Wheat flour to make conventional Bread, Syrian Bread or Asian Indian Breads (Chappatis / Rotis / Nans / Parathas / Puris). Eat tofu, Soy Sauce and miso regularly. High fiber diet can decrease total circulating Estrogens in the Body.
Wild Yam is a Dietary Supplement that contains Diosgenin which is a precursor to Progesterone in the Body. Progesterone helps to re-deposit Calcium back on the bones. Walk 30 minutes daily. High Estrogen Levels are modulated by cruciferous vegetables, such as kale, collard greens, mustard greens, broccoli, cabbage and turnips. Eat one serving daily. A good source of Natural Calcium which is easily assimilated in the body is Sesame seeds. The Black variety has a higher therapeutic value and a lower Oil content. You may soak overnight and eat. Chew to a fine paste. Include Sesame Seeds with your daily meals. They are a rich source of Calcium, Proteins, Magnesium and Iron. Eat Tahini (white Sesame Seed Paste) / white Sesame Seed + Dried Roasted Coconut Chutney with every meal. Fresh Coconut water and Carrot / Orange Juice are also rich sources of Calcium. Almonds are another rich source of Calcium. They contain trace mineral Boron which is essential for proper assimilation of Calcium in the body. Soak 5 - 10 Almonds overnight, skin and eat every morning.
Eat only unrefined crystalline Sea Salt which is a rich source of Natural Iodine. Pea are also rich in Iodine.
In case of Hysterectomy, regularly take Wild Yam, EndoCare and Hormone Balance. Include Soy Beans and Natural Sources of Calcium in your daily diet on a continued basis. Walk minimum 30 minutes daily.
Tell Tail Signs for Husbands to look out for
If these and many more Symptoms go un-noticed, it can cause tensions in the marriage and home and may result in the relationship or marriage falling apart. So don't take Hormonal Imbalance in your Woman's Body lightly. It is a serious matter which can be easily and safely corrected within a few weeks of making simple Dietary changes and by intake of necessary Herbal Dietary Supplements for a short duration.
Many women become incapable of normal functioning, both physically and emotionally, because of a Hormonal Imbalance in their body. Correcting this speedily is important. Besides the obvious health benefits, many have saved their marriages, their families, their careers and their sanity by taking corrective Herbal Dietary Supplements.
As a first step, Detoxify the Body, so that the Organs which have slowed down as a result of the Toxins accumulating in the Body, will speed up with the removal of Toxins from the Body.
There are 4 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Colon Cleanse, Kidney Care, Detoxifier and LivMax) that are involved in the Detoxification of the Body. These detoxify the intestines, the Kidneys, the Blood and the Liver respectively.
The second step is, to Rejuvenate the Body and "fine tune" the Body (just like an automobile at its 25,000 mile Tune Up); further speed up the Organs so that the Hormone generation in the Body is stepped up. Herbs to be used during Rejuvenation are Energizer, Kaya Kalpa, Kama Sutra, Shilajit and Gooseberry.
The Wild Yam and Hormone Balance will help in the natural synthesization of Progesterone in the Body and maintain an automatic natural balance between the Estrogen and Progesterone levels so that you do not become Estrogen Dominant. These Herbal Dietary Supplements can be taken simultaneously with the beginning of the Detoxification of the Body and can be continued right through the Rejuvenation of the Body.
In conclusion it is right to say that Detoxifying and Rejuvenating the Body is the first step to Reversing the Hormone Crash.
A Detoxification and Rejuvenation Program, once thoroughly done, is known to recreate in some cases, a Natural Hormone Balance within the Body even where Hysterectomy resulted in the complete removal of the Uterus and Ovaries. This has been reported in many cases where the other Glands of the Body have stepped in to start Hormone production.

Body is adjusted to help shed weight.
The Urgent Need of Today
Today millions of women young and old suffer from disorders related to Hormone Imbalance due to the high levels of Estrogen in our Diet and the environment.
our Body through:
This has affected over 90% women above the age of 40 years and approximately 35% women in the age group of 20 to 40 years.
Many young girls are reaching puberty at an early age of 8 years when the body is not fully developed for this function and many are reaching menopause at the age of 25 years !
In short, Hormone Imbalance has reached Epidemic Proportions.
There is an urgent need for the authorities like the "Health Ministry", " Food & Agricultural Ministry" and the "Environmental Protection Agency" (EPA) to wake up to this Stealth Epidemic that is undermining the health of the people.
Our Center is engaged in decimating information of this subject. We also offer Free Counseling on changes required to be made in Dietary patterns to face the onslaught of Synthetic Estrogen in our lives. Synthetic Estrogen is not biodegradable and the soil and seeds will stay contaminated for decades to come unless a massive "Clean-up Operation" is immediately undertaken on a priority basis.

Positive Weight Release Appendix "A"
The Traditional Approach
Traditionally, Weight Control has been to view weight increase as a Symptom and mankind has spent billions of Dollars and hours in its fruitless control by "Passive" means. This paper is presented to put forth a new School of Thought on an emerging concept called Positive Weight Release which is an "Active" type of Weight Release Program.
This paper explains the reasons for a change in the traditional approach from a totally "Passive Symptomatic Treatment" to an Active Program known as "Overhauling the Body".
When the Body starts to accumulate weight, it means that the various Organs of the Body have slowed down and the rate of metabolism of the Body has therefore also slowed down.
A more appropriate and a Positive Approach to Weight Release would be, as a first step, to Detoxify the Body, so that the Organs which have slowed down as a result of the Toxins accumulating in the Body, will speed up with the removal of Toxins from the Body.
The second step is, to Rejuvenate the Body and "fine tune" the Body (just like an automobile at its 25,000 mile Tune Up); further speed up the Organs so that the Rate of Metabolism is increased and the food being assimilated by the body is burnt much faster; and the Body does not continue to accumulate weight like before.
There are 4 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Colon Cleanse, Kidney Care, Detoxifier and LivMax) that are involved in the Detoxification of the Body. These detoxify the intestines, the Kidneys, the Blood and the Liver respectively. There is an optional herb Basil which can be used by people living in highly polluted environments and/or who were smokers at any time in the past. Basil will help to clear and Detoxify the lungs.
There are 3 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Energizer, Kaya Kalpa and Kama Sutra) that are involved in the Rejuvenation of the Body. Each capsule contains a number of Herbs which are targeted to different Organs of the Body, including the Brain - which is the "Super Computer" and "Master Server" which controls the whole Body. All these Rejuvenating Herbs are capable of increasing the Rate of Metabolism of the Body back (Reverse Aging) to when the body was much younger. For people who occasionally or habitually drink alcohol, or have very serious Chronic ailments, it is advisable to use Gooseberry to carry out a second level of Detoxification and Rejuvenation of the Liver.
This way, the Weight Gain Challenge of the Body may be overcome in a more positive way, as we are going right to the root cause of Weight Increase rather than working in isolation on the Symptom of Weight Increase.
Positive Weight Release does not subject the Body to the trauma of 500 Calories per day Diet which can lead to under nourishment and expose the Body to the risk of damage to its Organs.
The 4th Dietary Supplement in our Rejuvenation Program is known as Shilajit which is a Natural Mineral supplement in its original natural form (not a extract or freeze dried low potency form); which provides a number of natural trace minerals in their natural form to help speed up the working of the Organs. These minerals are found high up in the Himalayas.
Why Women Should not Diet !
Crash Dieting for prolonged periods of time creates a shortage of food in the body. The Human Body, which has its own intelligence, shuts down certain "redundant functions" when there is a famine situation in the body. One of the functions that is automatically shut down in a Woman's Body is Ovulation. The logic being "when there is insufficient food to support one life, there is no question for creating another life or carrying a Pregnancy to full term. At the start of the Ovarian malfunction, caused by prolonged and sever dieting, we see Non-ovulating Cycles, where the Body does not produce any Progesterone and the Estrogen levels remain unchecked and dominant. The Estrogen is stored in the Fat of the Body; Dieting now causes the Body weight to begin increasing at the rate of approximately 1 to 2 lbs. (0.5 to 1.0 Kg) per month.
Six months down the line, when you have put on approximately 10 lbs. (5 Kgs.), "common sense" tells us that more severe and prolonged dieting should solve the problem. At this point, the ovaries shut down completely to complicate the Hormone Imbalance situation further and the periods will cease totally and cause the body to go into a situation of Premature Menopause.
At this stage, the unchecked Estrogen levels in the body may cause Water Retention and Bloating so that even if you were to go on a total food fast, the body weight will increase due to just drinking a glass of water! So more severely you diet, the greater is the weight increase ! This explains why "Women should never Diet" or " Eat well and Release Weight".
How should women go about releasing weight if dieting is not recommended?
First look into any possible situation of Hormone Imbalance and correct that. The next is to begin eating food normally (consuming about 1200 calories a day) and Detoxifying and Rejuvenating the Body to increase the Rate of Metabolism to hopefully the same levels as when you were a teenager. This is called "Positive Weight Release" through increased Rate of Metabolism of the Body.
Detoxifying and Rejuvenating the Body is a first step to Positive Weight Release.
