Endometriosis is made worse by estrogen dominance. Shaklee’s Soy Protein is beneficial for anyone with estrogen dominance, such as PMS or perimenopausal women with heavy clots and bleeding.
“I had horrible periods and was diagnosed with severe endometriosis. The pain was so bad I could barely go to work. Running, the thing I loved to do the most, was put on hold. I was told I may not be able to conceive and was determined to do something about it.
I increased my Shaklee supplements and began using the Shaklee Soy Protein 5-6 times a day instead of twice. I started taking Shaklee’s GLA Complex and increased by intake of B-Complex, OsteoMatrix, Zinc Complex Click Here and Iron+C Click Here
Within the first month, I could feel a big difference. I had few cramps and noticed my mood swings were evening out. I had pain-free periods only six months after my diagnosis! The following month my daughter was conceived. After her birth, I nursed for 20 months and continued taking all my supplements and protein. I still drink Energizing Soy Protein 4-5 times a day and can tell if I slack off. My OB/GYN can’t believe I have no more symptoms. Thanks be to GOD, no more pain!” – A. Seydel
“At 40 I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I had 10-day periods with bleeding in between. My choices were to try birth control pills or a D&C…I was already taking vitamins from a local health food store that were more expensive but decided to try Shaklee. After a month or so of using Vita-Lea, OsteoMatrix, Soy Protein and Vita-E, I felt a big difference. The only time my symptoms ever returned was when I ran out of Shaklee’s Vita-E. Click Here I’m now 52, have no symptoms and the fibroids are gone!” –C. Hurst

For women who want to use natural alternatives to estrogen/hormone replacement therapy, the following Shaklee nutrition program has been reported to be helpful for a women’s reproductive system in general, and to delay and reduce menopausal symptoms in particular:
Menopause Balancing Complex, Energizing Soy Protein, GLA Plus Complex, OsteoMatrix and Gentle Sleep Complex (if needed).
Product Profile: Menopause Balance Complex
Contains the well-researched herb, Black Cohosh (which has been successfully used in Germany for over 40 years) to regulate hormonal balance in women during the transitional period of menopause, along with phytoestrogens from soy and flaxseed. Similar in structure to human estrogen, soy isoflavones and flaxseed lignans can bind to estrogen receptors, thereby exerting an estrogen-like effect. Menopause Balancing Complex also provides phytoestrogens from Dong Quai, red clover, and licorice. These appear to reduce the symptoms of hot flashes, sleep disorders, mood swings, etc. They also may provide a protective effect against osteoporosis, heart disease, breast disease, cholesterol levels and other health issues often associated with menopause.
