This month I've ovulated again!
Please use this as a testimonial! I've shared my experience with my holistic PCOS group (Polycystic Ovarian Disease), and I hope you'll have a few more orders soon.
I have “hidden cause” PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) , meaning it's not caused by insulin resistance, adrenal problems, birth control, nutritional deficiency, or any other common cause. I tried every herb or natural treatment or way of eating I could find. I tried the iodine protocol and even that did not heal me. One day, I ordered Progestelle progesterone, and it changed my life.
I called Dr. Eckhart after reading his booklet. It turned into a free hour-long consult. He told me, "We should have you ready to make a baby in about 3 months if you follow this very strictly." I told him not to get my hopes up!
I could tell something was happening almost immediately. Within the first week, my sense of smell changed dramatically. I used to have a very poor sense of smell, and loved the smell of cigarettes. All of a sudden my nose was hypersensitive. Cigarette smoke was disgusting. It has since evened out (though I still can't stand tobacco smell) but that was the first indicator of a huge change.
I ovulated last month, 80 days after my consult with Dr. Eckhart, my first ovulation in 9 months. Several days of plenty of fertile mucus, nice strong temp rise. Since I ovulated, I did not have to use any progesterone, as my period started on its own. This month I've ovulated again!
So here I am, ovulating on my own, not even using progesterone any more. Because I've eliminated xenoestrogens, my body has overcome the estrogen dominance and is able to make its own hormones again. I know the reason this protocol is not more widely known is that there is no money in it. I now use pure olive oil soap to bathe and wash my hands, special laundry detergent, I make my own deodorant, toothpaste, lotion, and chapstick, I gave away all my makeup (hundreds of dollars worth) and now only have a select few mineral ones I use.
I will say that the beginning is not easy. It takes a lot of work to make your own products, or money to buy specialty ones that are safe. You have to wash all of your clothes to get the estrogens out. You can no longer wash your hands in public, unless you bring a bottle of soap with you like I do. Even something as small as a mascara or lip balm with xenoestrogens can mean the difference between healing and remaining sick, if you're very chemically sensitive. It's hard to wait 3 months to see results. It's hard to explain to your husband why you're suddenly using bar soap to wash dishes. It's HARD to give up chocolate and coffee. But that is the price of healing!

UPDATE on Pregnancy and Birth of a Son
Jack was born 2 weeks ago, very healthy. I haven't had any milk supply issues and he's growing as fast as possible!
His skin has been great from day 1. Zero cradle cap and very minor baby acne. He's on the same zero xeno routine as me and I make his diaper cream and wipes myself.
I had an awful lot of fluid retention late in the pregnancy, and lost 15 lbs my first week after the birth. (no IV)
Thank you so much for all your help! I know I would not be holding this baby right now if it weren't for you and what you're doing trying to get the word out about these hormone disruptors. I look forward to a few more babies to come.
