Warren, why wouldn't you recommend the female rejuvenator to work on the hormonal balance issue? As you said, some of these hormone treatments can do more harm than good. I have a friend who is also seeing a nutritionist, who is subscribing the hormone treatments and she confided in me that she doesn't feel good, like she did with the total balance, omega3 and female rejuvenator. She was told to stop taking any of the Xtend-Life products and only take the products sold by the nutritionist. This clearly looks like a conflict of interest and I recommended she do what she thinks is right, for her overall good health and well being.
In most cases the Total Balance Women’s and Female Rejuvenator is a good combination for naturally balancing a women’s hormones. However, sometimes there can be a situation in which a woman may have a significant excess of estrogen and low progesterone (proven by blood tests) in which case the most effective way to balance the hormones is by dermal application of bio-identical progesterone.
With regard to your friend and the nutritionist. The nutritionist should not in my opinion be prescribing hormones to anyone. I wonder what this person is giving your friend? A nutritionist cannot legally prescribe genuine hormones, irrespective whether they are bio-identical or not.
Hormones should only be prescribed by an expert in that field and only after a full panel of blood tests. (and then ONLY bio-identical hormones should be used)
I suspect that the nutritionist may be selling a cream such as ‘wild yam’ which is claimed to be a natural progesterone…but it is totally useless…but, anyone can sell it because it does not need a prescription…probably because it does not work.
It would certainly seem that the nutritionist is not being honest and is more concerned about the money than your friend’s best welfare. If your friend is not now feeling so good she would be advised to switch back to what she was doing before.
