Prescribed estrium and i3c for endometriosis and infertility by naturopath/pharmacist to detox and level estrogen. Will this actually help?

Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine.

Pharmaceuticals which more frequently interfere with homeopathic treatment are steroids and antibiotics. ...Read more

Insulin resistance increases with obesity (apple type) and causes metabolic syndrome. This in turn potentiates polycystic ovarian syndrome. Adiposity increases estrogen in men and decreases testosterone. Protein, veggies, water! ...Read more
