Oh, that’s to bad about the hormone tests. The price is insane here too without insurance.
Yeah, unfortunately I don’t think vitamin e is going to give you the same benefits as the progest-e. From what I understand, the vitamin e protects against PUFA/oxidative damage. With using progest-e, even though I’ve lost about 25 pounds so far, my boobs are just as big as when I was 25 pounds heavier. Usually when I lose weight, I lose breast size right along with it. That and my temps stay higher with progest-e.
As for the salt and cortisol, I had a long conversation with my doctor about it. Salt is actually very good for the adrenals. When you get the racing heart, what is your pulse rate at, Dutchie? Also, do you take a thyroid supplement?
I’ve ordered Maca root powder based on my doctors recommendation to see if it will help my adrenals. I’ll let you know if it works. It might be something you could try to help reduce stress hormones/cortisol which would probably allow your body to make more progesterone instead of cortisol. The only issue would be that it’s a root and you have a problem with starches?
