Characteristics: Heavy, painful periods with flooding, tiredness and mood swings
Mrs. C. age 35, suffered from excruciating period pains. Every month she would lose a lot of blood, would usually vomit and suffer severe water retention around the abdomen and breasts which was very painful. She had suffered this as a teenager but had taken the contraceptive pill to try and combat it. She had been on the pill for 13 years and had stopped taking it in order to conceive, Since the birth of her child, some 10 months earlier, the debilitating periods had reoccurred.
The ‘Health Detective’ Screening System picked up imbalances in the hormones and in Progesterone and Adrenal hormones. She was found to be out of balance in vitamin E, vitamin C, potassium, B vitamins and sensitive to dairy products, wheat and sugar. She was given suitable homeopathic and herbal remedies. Her symptoms slowly receded over a couple of months and her periods became a lot lighter and pain-free.
In cases of extreme pain or heavy periods we tend to also recommend a course of Colonic Hydrotherapy as constipation and/or diarrhoea normally go hand-in-hand with this condition.
