Dear Farida,

I had a similar problem a few years ago. I had polyps causing excessive bleeding. I was exhausted all of the time. The doctor removed the polyps and my period went back to normal.

But, in your case, the doctor has been unable to find an exact cause. Research has shown that both fibroids and adenomyosis are estrogen dependent.

Our bodies constantly balance estrogen with progesterone, but this balance can be thrown off. Many pharmacies and health food stores sell natural progesterone cream which can help to balance the estrogen. Your doctor may already be recommending it for his patients who are beginning menopause.

Stress, highly processed fatty foods, meat from animals injected with hormones can all increase the estrogen load on your body. Get plenty of rest, eat fresh fruit and vegetables and reduce the amount of red meat you eat. You will be amazed at how much better you feel after 2 to 4 weeks.

Our emotions play an important part in our health, too. Are you holding onto hurts in your marriage or your work life?

Sometimes we don't even realize that we are holding onto hurts. Forgiving and letting go is hard to do, but when you really let go, you release negative emotion that is stored in the body. This paves the way for physical healing.

Best to you,
