Fertility & Hormones

This has always mystified me.  I've talked to A LOT of women who are working on fertility - trying to become pregnant - who have worked with fertility clinics.  Frequently, they say the doctors don't check for hormone imbalance!  This is a huge factor in whether a woman can become pregnant or not!  If there is hormone imbalance, perhaps she may not be ovulating, or her luteal phase (second half of the menstrual cycle, which comes after ovulation) isn't long enough.  These things can definitely hamper conception!

Testimonial

Pam, I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for you and all you do. My little girl has lots of trouble sleeping and the non-alcohol Goodnight Tincture and Teething Tincture are our saviors!  After she was born, I was doing really well emotionally but the last couple of months felt myself falling into depression and heightened anxiety. I do all the usual vitamins and supplements for it, and started taking my placenta (which I’d saved just in case!), but it wasn’t enough and I’ve been struggling so much. I decided to add Happy Day Tincture and Vitex and within a week started feeling a significant shift.  It’s not perfect yet but I feel some hope and like there’s definitely been a turn around. Thank you for all you do and the products you create with such care!  N.R.
