Struggling with hormones and libido problems?

Many of my readers are interested in FLOW and BOOST.

These are my two NEW blood flow supplements and libido vitamins.

They write to me asking if I would recommend it to them with their current health condition.

And, in some cases, some of them are wondering if it would help if they’re struggling with hormones and libido problems for years.

Just like this email, I got recently. Check out the email and my response below.

BALANCE FOR YOUR BODY

“Dear Dr. Bratton,

I am 54 years old and I have very little libido. I tried Bioidentical hormones with little success. 

My estrogen levels skyrocketed and my testosterone levels remained extremely low. Didn’t move at all. Another doctor told me it was because of my adrenal glands and I need to repair those otherwise my body will convert the testosterone into estrogen. 

I was not told how to repair my adrenals. I was excited to find you and receive your emails. 

Do you think your supplements would work for me or do I still have to address my adrenal glands before using your supplements? Would they make my estrogen levels skyrocket again? 

I showed my husband your emails about your new supplements and he’s excited about them too. He is on Lexapro, and we are not sure if there’s anything in the libido or Blood flow supplements that would interact with it. He also took bio-identical hormones, the pellets kind. His primary purpose for taking them was to help increase his energy levels. It minimally helped with his energy levels, but it did increase his libido dramatically. But it also caused a pimple problem.

He’s looking for an alternative to bioidentical hormones that would not cause these kinds of side effects and maybe help with his energy and keep his libido healthy.

Do you think your supplements would be good for him?

Thank you.” — Fiona (not her real name)

Dear Fiona,

Good to hear from you, and glad you are fighting to keep your sex life ageless.

First of all, I am not a doctor. I have a business degree and become a sexpert as my second career due to my struggles with intimacy.

It seems that both you and your husband have not gotten the results you wanted from bio-identical hormone replacement. This may be due to your provider’s lack of skill or what you expected, not the power of BHRT when done well.

One of the best ways to get started on your journey to better hormones is to understand how hormones work and naturally help your body produce more (or less) certain hormones to provide a healthy balance.

Hormone replacement is heart-protective, supports cognitive function and more youthful sexual function.

If your estrogen skyrocketed but your testosterone remained low, the ratio of your prescription was not correct.

If your husband got pimples, his prescription was incorrect as well.

With BHRT, you need to have both a dried urine test and a blood test before and during the treatment so the doctor can monitor your levels. Here is a video explaining the DUTCH test that your practitioner needs to use and a blood test. Educate yourself, be your health advocate, and get your doctor to work within the system to support you.

Here is an article on the DUTCH test as well.

Hormones are individualized and need to be tweaked to get them “just right.” It’s not a one-size-fits-all pill. You must sometimes increase one thing and decrease another. For example, balancing the Estradiol to Estrone to Estriol ratio for women is essential. Just as making sure a man doesn’t need an aromatase inhibitor or more DHEA when he supplements testosterone. These are just two examples of the myriad things a skilled hormone practitioner is looking at, along with cortisol levels (adrenals) and thyroid.

I encourage you to try again with a more skilled practitioner.

Estrogen helps keep your vaginal tissue youthful. Testosterone is the hormone of sex drive and libido.

If you do not have enough Vitamin D and B-Complex and are not getting a daily dose of Boron, you can throw as much hormone replacement as you want, and your body will still not utilize the hormones. If you have a fatty liver, you will not get the hormonal balance you seek. NAC, a precursor to glutathione, is an essential part of supplementation to support your BHRT regimen.

So don’t give up. Keep trying. Hormones are so helpful that it’s worth fussing over them to dial them in for your comfort and pleasure.

If you are adrenally exhausted, you must slow down, rest, and recuperate. First and foremost, you can support your adrenal healing through sleep and nutrition. Low on sugar, carbs, and caffeine, high on organic veggies and quality fats and proteins. It would be best if you also had Vitamin C, D, and a B-Complex plus magnesium and selenium. Chaga, a mushroom that grows on birch trees, is also helpful for adrenal repair. You can mix it in your smoothie, take a tincture, or steep it as a tea.

I recommend you both take FLOW and our libido multivitamin multi-mineral complex daily.

There are three libido botanicals you cycle through in the 90-day supply of the DESIRE Trio. They are made for mid-life couples. You can share them, but it will only be a 45-day supply, so you might want to get two bottles of each. They have a two-year shelf life. The libido vitamins have 100% of the recommended US daily allowance of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, D, and a B-Complex with 5-MTHF, a more easily metabolized form of B9 called methylfolate, in addition to Boron, Magnesium, and Selenium, all of which help with the HPA axis – hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal axis. The libido vitamins also have iodine that your thyroid, the master of your sex hormones, requires, and iron to help with red blood cells and oxygenation.

The botanicals fenugreek, TKA, and Tribulus, in the libido vitamins, are adaptogenic herbs that support hormone regulation and increase overall libido.

FLOW is a nitric oxide booster that includes natural Vitamin C from acerola cherries. You only need a good Omega 3 supplement – fish oil or algae-based and the organic Chaga as mentioned.

LEXAPRO

Lexapro is an SSRI, which is not contraindicated for a nitric oxide booster or a daily vitamin. However, it’s always good to talk to your doctor first. SSRIs are for depression. You may find that healthy nutrition and a daily walk might make an anti-depressant unnecessary. It’s worth trying sleep, hygiene, exercise, and food as your first line of defense if your doctor might not have suggested those before giving you a prescription.

Rest, organic home-cooked healthy food, plenty of healthy fats such as avocado oil, ghee, nuts, avocados, seeds, fatty fish will help your body regulate your hormones. But it won’t replace the estrogen post-menopause or testosterone for either you or your man going through andropause. So please try again with the BHRT. Take our vitamins and blood flow supplements to keep your heart and brain healthy and support your hormone production with essential nutrients your body cannot make.

Get out and start walking.

Try again with your hormones and keep tweaking them until you feel great. You have another 30-40 years of life. What you do now in your early 50’s will set a platform for your health span for years to come. Cardiovascular disease, stroke, pulmonary diseases and Alzheimer’s, and dementia are directly correlated with your nitric oxide production and preventing stiff arteries filled with plaque.
