I hear ya hon.. it does still break the heart-- especially for a mother.
A doctor may tell you the herbs are all useless and probably all harmful because they arent drugs.- so i would ask about them to a NUTRITIONIST After you get the diagnosis from the doctor. Dont let him prescribe anything until you get the okay from a nutritionist though. Drugs seem to be designed to keep one dependent forever on the medical system.
The herbs can be purchased in capsule form seperately. The product I have was a special product on Clearance sold locally. There is no website or phone number on the label. Do a Google search for each herb. Chances are you'll find one with all three herbs in it like mine.
MH from the Barefoot Herbalist has a formula with all woman's hormone type herbs- meant for female problems like yours and others. It is all natural -- no toxins or chemicals added as he wildcrafts the herbs himself or buys from those who sold him organic wild herbs. you can call his number at 937-666-6107 He sold everything online but the host site that hosted his website shut down and never paid him.
His formula is based on Dr. Christopher's "Chang-ease" for women.
Good luck- and please do try that Epsom Salt bath. During menstruation- Magnesium i s very low in the body- and this bath -- or at least foot soak - may be just what you need!
