Is Women’s Best Friend taken only during menstruation or daily?
Women’s Best Friend is for use during the period to ease monthly discomfort, help to regulate your cycle and balance female hormones. We suggest 2 capsules, 2-3 times daily, during menstruation as needed. Discontinue when your period has ended.
Will this product help me with my PMS as well?
The 17 whole herbs in Women’s Best Friend are formulated to help soothe cramping, ease bloating, and help manage moodiness during your period. While some women have found this beneficial, others need more support. We recommend Female Harmony in the weeks leading up to your period as a gentle, effective way to get a handle PMS mood swings, bloating, fatigue and hormone triggered tension.
Will Women’s Best Friend help with heavy menstrual bleeding?
Women’s Best Friend is formulated to support the cycle, promote regularity and bring it into balance. For difficult periods, we recommend rotating Women’s Best Friend, during your period, with Fibro Defense in-between periods. The natural immunity boosters and circulation enhancers in Fibro Defense help flush cellular waste, support normal cell function and balance hormones. For best results, rotate these two products for three months.
When beginning herbal therapy, some women may experience temporary cycle shifts. While not everyone experiences these changes, they can be a good sign that the body is responding to the herbs. Cycle shifts related to herbs usually last about 1-3 months but some need to take it for 5-6 months. After you have followed this regimen for a least 3 cycles, we suggest you follow this protocol for one cycle every 3-4 months for maintenance.
I struggle with painful, difficult monthly periods. I feel like I’ve tried everything but herbs. What products should I try?
While on your period, we suggest Women’s Best Friend to help ease your discomfort. Rotate it with Fibro Defense in-between periods to help balance hormones and support normal cell function.
Can phytoestrogens increase risk for diseases like breast cancer?
While it’s true that some herbs like Dong Quai, Red Clover, and Licorice contain natural phytoestrogens (estrogen-like compounds), there is no credible evidence that moderate intake of these herbs in their whole form will increase your risk for estrogen driven disease, like breast cancer.
Dr. Linda Page combined numerous whole herbs in moderate amounts in the formulas. This type of traditional herbal approach reduces the potential for side effects or reactions, and is a primary reason many herbalists choose to blend herbs rather than use high doses of any one herb. The blended herbs in a moderate concentration act more like a food than a drug in the system. They go through normal digestion and elimination like a food, not building up in the system or burdening the body with potential toxicity.
Still, if you have an estrogen-based health problem, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor before using herbs that can affect hormone balance. Other products on the market use concentrated sources of phytoestrogens, or may be otherwise inappropriate for your unique health needs.
