These are some of the supplements I recommend to my patients for specific health issues and/or symptoms. You do NOT need to take ALL of the supplements listed below. I use a targeted approach to address symptoms using the fewest number of supplements. 


Brain Support

Barlean’s Fish Oil

Barlean’s has fish oil caps and DELICIOUS omega 3 liquid. I know it is hard to imagine that a fish oil liquid could be yummy…but this IS! Several flavors available.

Vitamin D3

Dosing should be determined by having a blood test to check Vitamin D. If you are not able to get a blood test, I recommend 1000 to 2000 iu once daily. Vitamin D is a key supplement for breast, bone, immune system and neuromuscular health.

Gaia Herbs Adrenal Health Daily support and Adrenal Health Nightly Restore

This regimen is an intensive, corrective regimen versus a maintenance regimen like the first two supplemental listed above. 


Female Hormone Balance

Chaste berry (Vitex)

Dosing is around 1000 mg daily, stopping during menses.

Gaia Herbs Vitex Berry

2 caps daily, stop during period. This increases progesterone production by increasing luteinizing hormone. You HAVE to have ovaries to get this benefit. 

Milk thistle

This supplement helps clear extra estrogen from your body. This is helpful if you tend to have breast tenderness prior to the period or having any other high estrogen/estrogen dominance symptoms. If you have hay fever, I recommend using DIM instead of milk thistle caps.

Estriol cream

This is a weak estrogen that, when used can reduce  vaginal atrophy, urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, and vaginal dryness. For this particular probduct, dispense one pump of cream into the palm of your hand and rub onto the skin of your abdomen, inner arms or thighs rotating area each time. You can also rub on hair bearing areas of the labia. It is recommended that you use progesterone cream as well when using estriol cream.
