Menstrual Problems, PCOS, Endometriosis, Fibroids, PMS


As women we expect our body to work like clockwork. Unfortunately Kerri Abbott Naturopath and Nutritionist finds this is not always the case. Menstrual problems can sometimes be debilitating, causing pain, clotting, nausea, painful breasts, mood swings and headaches due to hormonal imbalance.

Stress, environmental pollutants, the contraceptive pill, xeno-estrogens to name a few upset the beautiful balance of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that govern our monthly cycle.

  • Estrogen excess results in heavy bleeding, clotting, pain, endometriosis and fibroids
  • Estrogen deficiency results in vaginal dryness, loss of libido, hot flushes, brain fog
  • Progesterone deficiency results in sore breasts, PMT crankiness, irregular cycle, menopause problems, osteoporosis and anxiety
  • Testosterone excess results in PCOS, facial hair growth, infertility, lack of periods and acne

Menopause symptoms affect about 70% of women approaching menopause. Changing hormonal levels in the female reproductive system causes typical menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes or night sweats, foggy head and vaginal dryness. Almost all women notice early symptoms while still having periods. This stage of gradually falling and fluctuating hormone levels is called peri-menopause, which often begins in the early 40s and sometimes in the 30’s.
