Estrogen Dominance Creates a Magnesium Deficiency Contributing to Cramping and Migraines

Uterine Cramping and Migraines

Magnesium Deficiency from Environmental Estrogens

Uterine cramping that occurs during period is sometimes associated with migraines. Estrogen Dominance caused by chemical estrogens and plant estrogens cause a magnesium deficiency. Both the magnesium deficiency and Estrogen Dominance cause the uterine cramping. The solution is to cut out the chemical estrogens and plant estrogens out of your environment, and take topical natural progesterone cream. Usually, the cramping is gone in about 1-3 months.

Any time there is Estrogen Dominance; it creates a magnesium deficiency. A magnesium deficiency causes muscles to tense up. Any time there is muscle tensing there is a "Charlie Horse" in the legs. Restless leg syndrome is a disease in which the muscles tense up. The smooth muscle of the intestines also tense up. This causes constipation. The uterus is kind of like a upside down muscle bag. A magnesium deficiency cause the uterus muscle to tense up and cramp.

Cutting out xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens, and taking progesterone for several months can correct the magnesium deficiency automatically. The body stops loosing magnesium and magnesium supplements are no longer necessary.

A woman can tell she has a magnesium deficiency if she has a chocolate craving just before her period. Chocolate is high in magnesium. So the woman biologically wants to replace the magnesium, so she has a chocolate craving. The medical term for this craving that fufills a deficiency is pica. So a chocolate craing can actually be a flag to the woman that she still has a source of xenoestrogens or phytoestrogens in her environment and she has not been able to remove them. So the migraines, chocolate craving, and cramps all go hand in hand. The bad thing about chocolate is that in addition to containing magnesium, it also contains a phytoestrogen. The phytoestrogen in the chocolate exacerbates the Estrogen Dominance problem.

It did wonders!

Your product has been a great help the few years I've been using it. When I first started using it, I had been having bad P.M.S., cramps and many cysts in my breasts. I got off parabens for the most part and started using the oil. It did wonders! My husband couldn't even tell when I was about to start. Hormone Headaches and profuse underarm sweating were a thing of the past and very light if any hot flashes in the night or breast tenderness.

My question is: I am almost 49 and the past couple of years have had a "regular cycle of 25 days then a break through period two weeks later, then 25 days and two weeks later, etc. My periods were pretty light, lasting maybe 3-4 days. The past few months, they started getting heavier/longer and in January I had a very heavy one lasting over a week. Now this month I was supposed to start on the 10th but have not had a period yet. I usually stop applying the oil the day I start and then wait 8-12 days before applying it again. When should I start/stop applying the oil if I don't have a period? I'm assuming this is part of the menopause process, but want to apply the oil at the proper time to get the most benefit. Thank you for your time,

Editor's Note:

Periods becoming heavier indicates a xenoestrogen or phytoestrogen in your environment. Get rid of it and the problem will go away.

Take Progestelle whenever you do not have a period.

A magnesium deficiency will also cause calcifications to form. The calcifications may form in the breast and be seen on a mammogram. Also calcifications may form in the arteries causing artherosclerosis. Many times when women cut out xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens and take topical natural progesterone, the calcifications in the breast will disappear over a period of several months.

Many women think that cramping is a normal part of being a woman. Nothing could be further from the truth. You too can live a pain free life.

For instance, my wife is from Taiwan and we've been married for 20 years. She did not have PMS or uterine cramping when she lived in Taiwan. After she moved to the United States, she bought the usual laundry detergent and dryer sheets from the Super Market. She began to have PMS and cramps. Every month she was crabby and irritable. She began to suffer from cramps. So I gave her progesterone cream and she felt better. The mood swings went away and the cramps also went away. I switched our laundry detergent, soap and shampoo to ones free of chemicals that were chemical estrogens. Eventually, after a while, she found that she did not need the progesterone cream. As of 2010, she has been free of PMS, mood swings, irritability, cramps for the last 10 years. She is usually surprised when her period comes.

I had been known to cry from the pain and nearly wanted to go to the hospital if I ever tried not to take pain medication.

I recommend this product. For 15 years, I had severe cramps. I had to take 6 ibuprofen every few hours for 2 days. I had been known to cry from the pain and nearly wanted to go to the hospital if I ever tried not to take pain medication. I went to doctors who, even while sympathetic, could not tell me what was wrong. Every test came back normal, but I knew something was wrong. I had researched years ago alternatives and the only thing I ever heard suggested was to become a vegan, which I already was. I had long given up hope, except for a glimmer that one day led me to your website. I followed your protocols about xenoestogens - got rid of most plastic and changed toiletries and laundry soap. In the beginning I used the recommended dose, but as time went on my use was a bit more erratic - mainly because I like experimenting. I have found that when I use the recommended dose consistently, I have virtually no cramps whatsoever. I have also found that after using Progestrelle for nearly two years, on the months I don't use it, my cramps are no worse than the feelings of indigestion. And while I did change my diet recently to 100% raw vegan, which seems to have helped as well, I am convinced that this product performed nothing less than a miracle. I don't think I can express my gratitude, because to be honest, I wasn't sure that it would work! Every woman who has cramps should at least give this product a shot and see if it helps.

I don't know if I am good at writing testimonials, but in writing this, I realized how truly grateful I am. Sometimes I forget because there are so many "medicines" out there that don't work... and there are so many people that try to sell you things that are next to useless. I didn't think it would work, and even now I don't understand how it did work. It seems so simple, and I don't understand why no one told me about it. So sometimes I think I just imagined it all! But I know that can't be true. But the alternative seems so scary... why can't women buy this product everywhere... why don't doctors recommend it? Anyway, either I imagined it all, or you truly saved my life. I don't mean that melodramatically. There were times when the pain was so great that I thought I would be better off dead.

I usually recommend a magnesium supplement to correct the magnesium deficiency. Magnesium oxide has a very poor absorption, usually about 4%. A good chelated magnesium has a much better absorption of about 40%. I usually recommend a dose of 400-600 mg/day of Magnesium Glycinate. A chelated magnesium is just a magnesium with an amino acid wrapped around it. The danger of taking too much magnesium is that this will result in diarrhea or loose stools. If this happens just cut back on the dose of magnesium. Diarrhea or loose stools may also signal that the magnesium is not absorbing well. So you may have to change brands of magnesium glycinate. It is also possible that the magnesium pill is not dissolving in water and your stomach. To see if this is the case, take a warm glass of water, and put the magnesium pill in it. The magnesium pill should dissolve within several minutes. If the magnesium pill does not dissolve, then get a different brand and see if it is any better in dissolving.

Usually, taking magnesium really helps with both the migraine and the cramping. It should be the number 1 or number 2 supplement for both migraine headaches and cramping.

I am writing to say thank you.

Good afternoon. I am writing to say thank you. I am 31 years old and had suffered from very very extreme cramping for years which intensified every year. I had been checked for cysts and endometriosis which came up that I was negative on both. Apparently I looked completely normal and healthy inside. Muscle relaxers and Lortabs did not come close to helping my pain. My husband and I also tried to get pregnant for almost two years without luck. I stumbled across the website which led me to the womhoo site a couple of years ago. I followed all recommendations and started on Progestelle immediately. I saw results right away. I was completely cramp free for two months and then was pregnant by the third. I talk to woman all the time about this product and the affects of toxins on our bodies.

I would love to promote your product on my website. Let me know if this is a possibility. If not, I understand and still am thankful for this product as it changed my life.
