Symptom-Free Withdrawal from Synthetic Hormones
If you are currently on synthetic hormones, it is time to wean yourself off them. If you eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables and good sources of protein and exercise every day, you will have an easier time weaning yourself off synthetic hormones. Women who have been on synthetic hormones for decades may find it takes many months to do this, while others may be able to come off quite easily. We have provided a few scenarios for coming off your hormones as examples. Some women may want to switch over to bioidentical hormones, while other women will want to stop hormone therapy and use herbs and nutrients instead.
Case History: From Synthetic Hormones to Nutrients
Lisa, who is 72, has been taking Premarin for over 30 years, after having a complete hysterectomy. After the WHI estrogen-and-progestins study results were published, Lisa decided it was time to get off those hormones. Although she is well past menopause, her body is dependent on the synthetic hormones. Lisa does not want to switch to bioidentical hormones; she wants to come off hormones entirely.
In order to stop hormone therapy without nasty menopause symptoms, it is necessary for Lisa to wean herself off the drug slowly. It is important that all post-menopausal women who stop taking synthetic estrogens ensure they are using an excellent bone supplement containing a minimum of at least calcium citrate, magnesium citrate, vitamins D and K. Research has shown women are at higher risk of fracture at this time.
Weaning Off Oral Estrogens
Ask your physician for consecutively lower and lower dose prescriptions for estrogen to make the weaning process easier. MENOsmart Plus dosage is 2 capsules at breakfast and 2 at bedtime to provide 24-hour support.
|Weeks 1 and 2||1 day HRT||1 day MENOsmart Plus|
|Weeks 3 and 4||1 day HRT||2 day MENOsmart Plus|
|Weeks 5 and 6||1 day HRT||3 day MENOsmart Plus|
|Weeks 7 and 8||0 to 1 day HRT||MENOsmart Plus every day|
If you are using the patch Estrogen HRT: The longer you wear the patch, the weaker it becomes. You can also ask your physician for a lower-dose patch as well.
|Weeks 1 and 2||apply and wear for 5 days||alternate MENOsmart Plus|
|Weeks 3 and 4||apply and wear for 7 days||alternate MENOsmart Plus|
|Weeks 5 and 6||apply and wear for 10 days||MENOsmart Plus daily|
|Weeks 7 and 8||apply and wear for 14 days||MENOsmart Plus every day|
|Weeks 9||do not wear||MENOsmart Plus daily|
Every woman is different. Some women will be able to wean off HRT over an eight-week period; other women may take 18 months. The goal is to wean off symptom-free, so go slower than suggested above if you have to.
