Severe Anxiety (Hormonal Imbalance) Help !!

Hi All...

Firstly Happy New Year... and i hope 2017 is a good one for all...

Currently suffering from Estrogen Dominance.... had the blood tests etc.... after being on biodentical hormones for 4 weeks now off due to levels being in outer space....

Estrogen 243 was originally 39 needed to be around 49

Testosterone 453 was originally <10 only needed to be around 40

Progesterone is Low..

Currently on a Detox and reducing my hormone levels due to being too high.... but suffering with really bad Anxiety pretty much the case that i don't want to be here anymore !!!

Currently on 1.5 g Inositol per day and 200 mg 5 HTP... but still suffering with the anxiety more so in the evening and night .

About to start a very small dose of progesterone cream...tried the 1/4 tsp the other week but made me worse with a Estrogen spike .... so came off and let things settle

Only way i get to sleep is Zoplicone

Other than Diazipam which i don't want to go down that route can anyone suggest something else that is good for helping with the anxiety , but needs to be quick to work and not take weeks to get into my system....

Many thanks

Y

I found the amino acid L-Theanine helpful, taken shortly before bedtime, maybe 20-30 mins or so. It can also be taken during the day, if necessary.

Londinium,

What brand and dose of L-Theanine are you taking? Thanks.

Hi Serendipitous,

I've used different brands & doses. In this list, I'd probably veer towards LEF, Jarrow and NF.

Prices inc. postage.

I've never used this firm which was recommended to me. I don't know if they charge for postage.

Hi Londinium,

I've used Health Monthly before to buy Swansons Holy Basil. They're very quick to deliver too. I'll consider them for my next purchase. There's one for cats I take it you haven't tried that one 😉.

I bought this from Amazon but I'm not sure it's helping:

Premium Grade L-Theanine 200mg Super Strength Capsules - UK Manufactured & Lab Tested - Gluten Free - Easy Swallow L Theanine Tablets amazon.co.uk/dp/B01K334I42/...

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Serendipitous, you're welcome. 🖖🏻

I've never tried the Premium brand. I usually opt for LEF/Life Extension Foundation, ARG/Allergy Research Group, Jarrow, NOW, etc.

Yes, I saw the cat product; it may be the best of the bunch!

If you can afford it shiatsu massage is amazing for relaxation . It will even put you to sleep.
