I started my nbe journey with maca and fenugreek, i had alot of success initially but broke out bad so I decided Saw Palmetto would help. I added sp and wild yam.
OMG was it a mistake, - not only did the acne barely subside....about 2 weeks in, my breasts have decreased, I have lost my sex drive, mood is horrible, im insecure, paranoid, weepy, needy, its a nightmare. I also had EXTREME stomach pain one day, and blood in my stool.
Im done with SP and going back to my maca and fenugreek. How can I balance the acne on this program though?
Also is it normal for sex drive to plummet right after the period?
I've been taking saw palmetto for about a month and a half or maybe two months.. Not sure if I remember the exact date I started taking it. Anyway, I am using a liquid extract form and I'm taking about 200-300 mg a day. My question is, is that a sufficient dose to possibly achieve breast enlargement results or is it too low? I do have symptoms of excess androgens such as jaw line and upper back break outs, but the low dose of SP has already helped a lot with that. I just don't know if the dose I'm using is enough to help with my NBE goals.
Any answers on this would be appreciated! Thanks!
Hey! I was wondering if it would be safe/a good idea/would it work well if I took a 8-prenylnaringenin supplement pill instead of just drinking beer to gain the main phytoestrogen 8-prenylnaringenin in hops?
Here is a link to what I was thinking about getting. I a, wanting to switch over mainly to using hops, and I don't think I would be able to drink enough beer to reap the effects so I was wondering if anyone knows about the safety/effectiveness of taking something like this.
I don't know if I am estrogen dominant but it appears I may be due to some online tests.
If that's the case will my program work?
I'm planning on taking fenugreek 2000mg wild yam 1500 and saw palmetto 1500 and maca 2000 with epo /fenugreek massage. On just the fenugreek and maca with massage I have grown 1/2 inch. Today I am introducing the other herbs. Any idea of this is a good combo for me?
I just came across this site today while researching. I am 25yrs old..I am in the process of losing weight and I am really worried about losing my breasts. I have lost weight before but had no issues with my boobs getting smaller but in 2013 I found out I had extremely low Estrogen. After that, I have noticed my boobs have gotten saggy, no fullness (except before periods). Does anyone have any input on this? Can low estrogen cause breasts to sag and loose fullness/volume?
I would like to know if I need to first get my blood tests done to figure out if I still have hormonal imbalance and I start the herbs according to that?! If I start this regime, would it help maintain the size while I am losing weight? What exactly do I need to take and when? I have also noticed my hair thinning ALOT, maybe this will help me with that as well.
I read through the newcomers section but found it really confusing.
Any help would be very appreciated! Thank you so much!
Alongside NBE I'm also looking to increase the size of my butt and perhaps round out my hips. I'm curious as to how much maca I should be taking to achieve this. I have it in powdered form and capsule form -- which is better? How many capsules should I take a day, or how many teaspoons of powder? Should I just...eat it, or mix it into tea?
Also, has anyone seen substantial results while on it? Does it need to be cycled? Sorry for the questions, I'm a noobie!
