I have a some chin hairs that I pluck and I live in California where they add clorine to the water (It damages the thyroid), and except for the last 51/2 years I drank it - I now drink reverse ossmosis treated water.
Remember to add some minerals or silica to reduce the solvency of the water before drinking it. Otherwise purified waters will rob your body of nutrients.
And there is my age... 66. I did the 'thermator under the arm' for a week or two... I couldn't find a glass thermator that worked to buy - i used a digital one and it was always about 78 and 79.
I hope you don't mean Fahrenheit? If so there is something wrong with the thermometer or how you are taking it. A person cannot live with a body temperature that low.
I may have a vitamin B12 shortage - I've been taking the sublingal type for a couple of weeks and it seems to be helping me somewhat. My eye has quit twiching and the stress has been reduced some. My voice is stronger. My Vit B12 levels were ok according to the nerologist. I don't trust the test. I read that a uriine test if much more accurate, and the doc didn't do one.
My balance is stiil off and I am weak, and when tired I slur my words. I suffer from incontinence
Mullein root or marshmallow root can help tone the bladder.
and have had a bladder infection this past week - very rare for me and that has been driving me crazy.
Uva ursi with calcium citrate 3 to 4 times daily will generally clear up a urinary tract infection in a few days. And drink plenty of water throughout the day, and urinate frequently.
I feel so stupid... yesterday I found myself in my health food store without a list, with a faulty memory, I bought soy lecithin, nettle leaf, Vitex and Astragalus (Is this the correct one?). I have been using a progestrone cream Emerita's Pro-Gest for the last 5 years - not as much or as regularly as the directions. Hv's posts have convinced me that there are much better ways to balance hormones.
These will work. The lecithin is not for hormones, but has a lot of beneficial properties for the body.
The vitex (chaste tree berry) is the one that raises progesterone, but it takes several months to kick in.
The nettle and astragalus will support the adrenals, which also produce the sex hormones.
Thanks Hv. Are there herbs that will balance my hormones quicker than these?
Bitters are the most important thing you can do to balance the hormones. And these work quicker than most herbs. Wild yam is also a good choice. The diosgenin in it has a weak progesterone-like effect and it also works on the adrenals. Drawback is taken orally most of the diosgenin is metabolized quickly by the liver. So wild yams creams are a better choice, but are hard to find now. They have been largely replaced with dangerous progesterone creams.
The mineral boron also helps to balance the hormones and keeps bones strong. You only need one 3mg tablet daily.
If you want to PM me with an e-mail address to attach a file to I can send you my two page hormone balance write up.
The sublingal B12, TMG and Bitters have helped me, my eye has stopped twiching, the double vision is a little better, and I feel better. Co-ordination and strength is still not good.
These symptoms can have various causes. Can you elaborate more on the symptoms?
What is for male hormone balance .Like increasing testorone
The herb tribulus terrestris helps increase testosterone levels. To keep it from converting to DHT though you should take it with jiaogulan, saw palmetto, or pygeum.
TMG also helps to form hormones.
And keep your adrenals up as they also produce testosterone.
I forgot to add you can also use nettle root, an aromatase inhibitor, which prevents the conversion of testosterone in to estrogen.
