PhytoB: A remedy?
Hi everyone. I'm new on this forum and really like a lot of the posts I've read today. I recently started on a natural estrogen/progesterone combo oral supplement called PhytoB. It supplies all three estrogens as well as progesterone in a plant-based form. My Acupuncturist got me on it after giving me blood tests. I had recently been through a complete work-up by my Internist who said I was very healthy (no signs of thyroid problems, heart problems, etc.)
My main complaints are fatigue, hair-thinning, early morning awakening with problems returning to sleep, moderate hot flashes, skin dryness and laxity. Has anyone tried these supplements successfully? I guess everyone's biochemistry is different and what works for one might not work for another. But I thought I would ask. I'm 52 and really, most importantly, want my energy back.
I've been on them 10 days and have noticed my hot flashes have been subsiding somewhat, but am waiting to see what else will get better. My Acupuncturist says it will take 6 weeks to see overall improvement. Thanks for your comments. Adrian
