A few years back I decided (due to all the ptotneial health risks and no longer needing them) to go off the pill. I ended up having horrible side effects . night sweats, cystic acne on my neck, irregular long periods, mood swings, couldn\'t sleep, gained 40 pounds in just a few months, along with other issues .. I went to the doctor several times. Kept telling them that my issues were hormonal but all I got was your getting older metabolism slows and body changes happen (I\'m 36!), your hormone levels are fine , you need to exercise . I was even put on a diet pill. No matter what I said, they wouldn\'t believe it was hormonal. I know by body and all changes happened after going off the pill. As a last resort, I went into a local Natural Health store. I talked with a wonderful woman about everything I was going through. She told me to try Healthy Hormones. I owe her everything! Within 2 weeks, I was sleeping through the night and the night sweats decreased. My next period was normal and no cycstic acne! I stopped gaining weight and have even been able to lose weight! She recommended taking 3 a day at first (the bottle says to take 9 a day) if I didn\'t see results then try 6 then 9 . I\'ve only taken the 3 and have had great results! I can\'t imagine where I\'d be without this stuff!!
Recently, I learned about this product. I have ordered it from SeaCoast a few times. I am Very pleased with the results and am eager to reorder!
