Hormones – Mine can get a little wacky, especially in the area of hormonal headaches, and also on a monthly basis as I suffer through a twenty-four hour stretch of feeling extremely down in the dumps. Recently I’ve tried these two remedies.
Carrots – Apparently Marilyn Monroe ate one a day. These long thin roots are known for balancing out a woman’s hormones, specifically by detoxing the excess estrogen in our systems. Check out http://empoweredsustenance.com/raw-carrot-a-day/. Additionally they help our vision, skin, have anti-cancer properties and detox the liver. I have implemented the carrot a day strategy in the past few months. I “feel” like I have more energy, my hormonal headaches don’t seem as prominent, and they have helped in providing a full feeling before I actually eat. Here’s another good link about the health benefits of carrots. http://thedetoxdiva.com/balance-your-body-with-a-carrot-a-day/
Evening Primrose Oil. This is another one of those all natural remedies that is supposed to help balance out a woman’s hormones. I felt like I was on estrogen overload with this stuff, and it produced major headaches at 1300 mg (a possible side effect). The benefits weren’t worth the pain with this one.
Lice – for those who were unaware, the Ronne family was invaded by lice. Super fun. Mya and Mabel each had it. We thought Jada did as well but she just had a tick stuck to her head (we do bathe our children). I read that some of the chemicals used to treat lice are close to the equivalent of spraying raid on your child’s head (not something I’m generally okay with). So instead I started with two natural remedies.
As for NonNatural options I’m exploring, eyelash extensions are starting to sound pretty good.
