The Big Picture of Premenstrual Symptoms
After reading all of the Premenstrual Syndrome & Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder articles it is apparent that the various premenstrual symptoms may be due to any combination of hormone imbalances. In most cases, it is best to start with ProgestoMend™ for a couple of months and then determine if other formulations need to be added to address high or low testosterone or low estrogen function, or low thyroid function or blood sugar disorders.
At this point you can see that ProgestoMend™ was actually designed to:
(a) Support the body’s natural ability to make progesterone and pregnenolone
(b) Allow enough progesterone to be a precursor for testosterone
(c) Help control androgen excess
(d) Allow enough progesterone to be a precursor for estradiol
(e) Provide some basic support of thyroid function
(f) Support blood sugar function
While ProgestoMend™ was primarily designed to support adrenal production of progesterone, it was also designed to address some of the additional hormones problems that commonly occur with poor adrenal production of progesterone.
And while ProgestoMend™ will improve most cases of PMS or PMDD, there are some cases where a woman may also need TestoGain™, or TestoQuench™ for Women, or EstroMend™, or ThyroMend™.
While research on PMS and PMDD is ongoing at the international level, further analysis of the information is needed. For the past two and a half decades PMS and PMDD have been treated as only a progesterone deficiency problem. We now see that many hormones are involved in PMS & PMDD. There is a singularity among hormones – they all interact and work together collectively. And while one hormone may be more dominant in a specific condition, it never works alone. That is why ProgestoMend™ interacts with other hormones.
