Hi! This is my first time posting a question so I hope I'm doing it in the right place :0)
My friend's mom actually approached me about some feminine issues because she knows I'm learning about healing with Real Food, and doctors that she has consulted haven't been able to give her a diagnosis or solutions. Her problem is that she has really heavy periods- REALLY heavy. They are accompanied by very painful cramps and intense fatigue. It's been like this for a long time (years- always?). She's 42, no menopause yet. Doctors ran lots of tests (ruled out cancer and thyroid) but didn't bring anything to her attention that might be the cause- simply suggested B12 supplement pills and put her on the depo shot for awhile (but it didn't change anything). Have you or any of your subscribers had any experience with this?
My first thought was hormone imbalance maybe? I would really appreciate any thoughts people might have to share on what might be wrong, and how she can change her diet to heal herself (since the doctor's don't seem able to). Thanks in advance!
