Is the Pill Killing Your Sex Drive?
Look for BPA-free soy and birth control Saturated Fats — saturated fat is what the body uses to actually make hormones by the liver. Consuming healthy saturated fats daily is going to be very important for getting your hormones back on track. I always suggest consuming coconut oil or butter, because it is also very stimulating to the thyroid, a key player in hormone balance. My favorite way to get these in the body is through the use of pollens. Bee pollen and flower pollen. My personal favorite product for flower pollens is Ultra Pollen by Premier Research Labs -Taking 6 daily is a great start. Another option is to make a homemade honey, bee pollen tonic. Both honey and bee pollen are rich in bioflavonoids and nutrients that are essential to normalizing hormones. This tonic can also help restore normal periods, when there is a loss of a period, or if the period is absent once coming off of birth control amenorrhea. The liver performs hormone synthesis, and without proper liver function, your hormones cannot balance. Therefore, this honey and pollen mixture has a two-fold benefit. You can try using both the Ultra Pollen with the honey mixture for a stronger effect, or you can take one or the other. The honey mixture is a great one to start with to see if it is therapeutic enough. It is also the cheaper option too. Both must be truly raw, otherwise, the benefits are not going to be there. Take 2 tbs daily. Secondly, if you are allergic to pollens, do not take. B6 deficiency leads to poor gallbladder function. Therefore it is imperative that you supplement with an activated form of B6 and a complex of B vitamins. In some cases, depending on how long you have been on the pill, you may need to take B6 indefinitely. Do not be surprised if you do not get results from other products Xenoestrogen Detoxification One of the key things that needs to be done in order to balance hormones after coming off birth control is to detoxify xenoestrogens from the body. Xenoestrogens are a large reason why the hormones come out of balance once coming off of birth control pills. Therefore, a key component to getting hormones back on track restoring normal periods and fertility, stimulating hair growth, preventing acne and mood swings, restoring libido we will be detoxifying and converting xenoestrogens from both the birth control pill and from other exposures. My favorite way to clear xenoestrogens is with a compound called DIM, or diindolymethane. DIM is a phytonutrient plant nutrient that is found in cruciferous vegetables. Research studies have found that it is incredibly effective in clearing the xenoestrogens from the body, helping to rebalance hormones. This product not only contains the compound DIM, which promotes healthy estrogen conversion in the body, but it also contains other ingredients that support liver detox and xenoestrogen conversion. It contains milk thistle and sulphorane excellent liver detoxifying agents , alpha lipoic acid, n-acetyl-l-cysteine, taurine, glycine and methionine which are needed to fuel the detoxification pathways at the liver. Finally, it contains calcium-d-glucarate which research has also found effective in detox, and to regulate estrogen metabolism supporting hormone balance. I personally used 2 capsules daily. Therefore, the following are a few supplements that I used to offset those side effects and to support the normalization of my hormones. Loss of Period — Not getting your period after coming off birth control is not a surprising side effect. Your ovaries have been suppressed for years, and it sometimes takes time for them to start working again. Most women find that their period returns in cycles. If your period does not return within a couple months or so, I would recommend starting with the Bioflavonoid recommendations above. I would also pair this with DIM Detox to help detoxify from the pill and support the liver. If after a month or two the period still does not return, there are a couple options. Head on over to my post about PCOS to learn more. Most of you will not fall under the Pill-induced PCOS category unless you exhibited symptoms before going on the pill. If you have tried bioflavoniods and the DIM without success for a few months, I would recommend using the herb called Vitex chaste tree or chasteberry. Vitex promotes ovulation by preventing your pituitary gland from making too much prolactin. Prolactin inhibits ovulation, so less prolactin equals easier ovulation. Take vitex first thing in the morning with breakfast. Take for 25 days, and stop for days before beginning again. Do not take for longer than 6 months. If it is the right formula it will work in that time frame and then will no longer be needed. Vitex can elevate LH and androgens. Hair Loss — Hair loss and hair thinning is an unfortunate side effect of taking the pill and coming off of the pill. For me personally, I was affected by this big time. While there are countless supplements out there claiming that they stimulate hair regrowth, like biotin, minerals and B vitamins, the ONLY thing that I found to work was Hair and Nails by Dragon Herbs. I swear by this supplement and take daily without fail. It works by tackling the root cause of the issue, which is hormone balance and jing depletion. I think you will be surprised at just how effective this product is, especially for restoring hair growth, and making the nails strong excellent if you have peeling nails. Energy, Mood and PMS Elimination — these took me awhile to figure out, as I had terrible period cramps before going on the pill. I mean, the kind of cramps you will happily kill yourself if the option was available. The first thing that helps relieve pain with menstrual cramps is castor oil packs. Apply these directly over the uterus when symptoms arise. But the true blessing, the supplement combination that cleared yes cleared and got rid of completely my cramps was two Chinese herbal products — Eternal Jing and Adaptogen Energizer by Dragon Herbs. I take Eternal Jing and 6 Adaptogen Energizer daily. Another final thing to add onto this treatment plan is to make sure you are eating enough protein, protein rich in B12 and zinc. I have seen so many women suffer from cramps and PMS in partly due to an underlying B12 and zinc deficiency stemming from anemia, and blood deficiency. So make sure to eat your protein, even if that means adding a small portion of grass-fed, organic buffalo or lamb into the diet a few times a week. A final note about this treatment plan is to make sure you are eating enough protein, protein rich in B12 and zinc. This means that they can take up to 2- 3 months to show results since they work on the root issues of the body. Therefore, do not stop taking them if you do not see results right away. This does not mean that they are not working. This is the same with all tonic herbs. The good news is that they work on the body as a whole, mentally, spiritually and physically, so there is a good chance you will notice a benefit beyond just hormone balance. If you are suffering from anxiety, depression or any other mood disorder, try Macaharmony. In addition to the hormone balancing diet, and a regular exercise and stress reduction routine, Macaharmony is a good place to begin, along with the DIM Detox. Maca is an adaptogen that helps the body regulate hormones. It also has been shown to improve mood, sleep, energy and well-being. The Maca harmony supplement is a concentrated form of maca and therefore is more therapeutic that a powdered form of maca which I do not recommend. If you do not see any results using the maca, there are a few natural anti-stress formulas to try. Each body is different, so you might have to try them to see which works best with your system. Brooke Cagle Acne — The issue of acne is a huge one, especially for all of us that went on birth control pills in the first place to clear the skin. The thing about acne is that it is greatly influenced by hormones, especially high testosterone. A tell-tale sign that your acne is caused by high testosterone is back acne, and acne around your mouth and chin, and chest but it is not limited to this. The other factor is your digestion and digestive health. It is imperative that you are having at least one bowel movement a day, that you are digesting your food without bloating, gas, pain, or discomfort, and that you are eating a CLEAN diet. You cannot eat white flour gluten , white sugar, processed foods and foods loaded with xenoestrogens especially dairy and expect to have great skin. Another thing to mention is antibiotics. If you are taking oral antibiotics to clear your acne, you are shooting yourself in the foot. Antibiotics kill not only bad bacteria, but good bacteria too. This good bacteria lives in your gut and is a key player in food digestion, immunity, and digestive health overall. If you are taking antibiotics, you are killing this good bacteria and harming your digestive health and immunity, which will be an underlying factor in your acne, especially cystic acne. So if you are taking antibiotics, I would advise coming off of them and taking a probiotic supplement to restore the good bacteria in your gut. Not all probiotics are strong enough to really restore the healthy bacteria, which is why I only use Dr. Well worth the price. You will also want to eat probiotic rich foods like kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, organic tempeh and kefir daily. Now back to high testosterone and acne. If you have issues with high testosterone can be verified by getting your hormone levels tested , it is imperative to keep your intake of sugar and carbohydrates low. This will help to keep your insulin levels balanced. If you need extra help with balancing blood sugar, I would suggest taking GlucoFunction by Pure Encapsulations. To lower testosterone, try taking Saw Palmetto by Pure Encapsulations. Although this is commonly taken for the prostate, saw palmetto has been shown in research to lower testosterone and therefore can be taken by women. Finally, the best supplement I have found for clearing up skin, especially that which is hormone related is the product called Femmenessence Macaharmony. Even if you have signs of high testosterone, this product can help clear it if your case is not severe. It is a concentrated form of the adaptogenic root Maca.
