Lifestart Naturopathics Fem21 - 300g
The main active hormones throughout a woman’s life are estrogen (both good & bad), progesterone, and testosterone (plus the signaling hormones LH & FSH). The balance & metabolism of these hormones contributes to many physical symptoms & conditions.
One of the telltale signs to monitor for hormonal issues is menstruation & patters of symptoms in each cycle. Heaviness, irregularity, pain & clotting are signs of imbalances, which can be addressed with appropriate support.
Our other endocrine glands including Thyroid (metabolism & weight control), Adrenals (energy & stress response) & Pancreas (sugar control & insulin resistance) also play a big part in our overall hormonal balance & general health.
Fem21 addresses multiple endocrine systems in the one formula for support, balancing & healing.
Liver & Digestive cleansing:
Proper functioning of the liver & digestive system is crucial to overall health. Hippocrates – the father of medicine stated “all disease starts in the gut”. Digestion is the key to nutrient absorption and accessing the building blocks of life. It houses an internal environment of good & bad bacteria. These bacteria can influence the function of our immune system along with systemic inflammatory processes. Our gut is one of the body’s most efficient detoxification pathways. Waste, toxins & hormonal metabolites are filtered by the liver and then dumped into the bowel. The final step is the action of fiber in Fem21, which soaks up toxins & carries them out of the body, preventing recycling of toxins.
The acid/alkaline balance of our blood & tissues greatly influences how efficiently we function & the aging process. When our body is acidic and inflamed the pathways to making & metabolizing hormones is significantly affected. It’s very difficult to have hormone balance in an acidic body.
Under the same umbrella of acidity we see oxidative stress (cellular rusting), free radical production and inflammation. We negate this by alkalizing with greens, superfoods, herbs & antioxidants such as in Fem21. Effective detoxification at a cellular level and in the gut is extremely important. Thankfully Fem21 is supportive of many systems to improve overall health & happiness.
Fem21 can be safely used by most women, from teenagers 13 years and up through to post-menopause in the mid 50’s. It’s useful to increase the dose of Fem21 (1 dose = 2 heaped teaspoons) up to 2/day during times of peak hormonal activity, mid-cycle around ovulation and in the week before a period. It is very common in the first 3 months of working on hormone balance for your cycles & symptoms to change. This shift may involve detoxification, change in cycle length or the quality of your periods. This is normal and beneficial as your body & hormones are balancing and clearing. Know this phase will pass and on the other side of it you’ll be looking, feeling and functioning like a new woman.
