Product Preference Confessions of a Beeyoutiful Lover

By Stephanie Kuvik TallentSteph J

One of the “perks” of working at Beeyoutiful is that employees have the blessing of experiencing the benefits of each product in Beeyoutiful’s incomparable lin-up and, for almost 3 years now, I’ve used just about everything. To choose favorites among these prized health helpers feels a bit like choosing a favorite among my kids but I confess: there are some “chosen ones” for me. Although I have a Top 20 list, I’ve narrowed it to five to share with you (maybe more next time).

Aroma-Pro Essential Oil Diffuser

Using the Aroma-Pro Essential Oil Diffuser, I “play” with the fragrances and scents I fill my home with almost daily. I might mix a little Orange Oil with a bit of lemon and eucalyptus and maybe a dash of peppermint to permeate my home with a citrusy-fresh fragrance that is also secretly killing germs. While I don’t see it happening, I know my friend, Aroma-Pro, microbializes each oil into the air, allowing it to do its own cleansing job. The oils remain in the air and kill germs for up to five or six hours after diffusion. Another huge plus: it is far more effective and natural than any germ-killing aerosol spray in the market. Oust and Lysol do not use up money from my grocery list—Whoohoo!

As part of my diffuser playtime, I also read about each oil-its particular properties and what it blends well with-and now I’m not afraid to mix a little of this and a few drops of that. (Beeyoutiful offers a great resource to help in your own adventure with essential oils. If you don’t already have a copy, order The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood. The book explores far more than just diffusing essentials oils and it has been an invaluable reference for me on more than one occasion. You’ll find it on page 14 of this catalog.)file_5_7

Aroma-Pro Essential Oil diffuser is a special blessing during the fall, winter and early spring months when colds, flu, and allergy irritants are rampant in the air. When we come home fro shopping, church, or the gym, I switch on the diffuser to kill germs or bacteria we may have brought home. As we go about our day-whether putting groceries away or taking a Sunday afternoon nap-we breathe in those marvelous, microbialized oils and rid ourselves of the yuck we brought home. When a cold or flu bug does grab hold despite our best efforts, I crank up the diffuser with oils that have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and disinfecting properties to help beat the bug as quickly as we can. I blend a few oils that are good for easing congestion and opening airways. And when pollen in the air causes sneezing and teary eyes, essential oils in the diffuser is my answer again.

OwEaseinsideviewOw!-Ease

Most of the tears in our house come from one or both of our toddlers as they’ve learned to walk, run, jump, play, and -not so gracefully-fall down and bump something. But those tears dry up almost automatically when Mommy says, “Oh my, I bet that hurts. Do you need some cream on that?” We toddle off to the bathroom to smooth Ow!-Ease on the tear-inducing red mark. Just knowing Mommy is going to “fix it” with our amazing creams stops the tears and helps take the “ow” away.

I love Ow!-Ease, not just because it helps stop the tears but because it works. Arnica has been used since the 1500’s by both Europeans and Native Americans in salves, creams, liniments, ointments, and tinctures (as a base for poultices and compresses) to aid the healing of sprains and bruises, and to soothe aching muscles and relieve inflammation. Arnica, a perennial herb, is used mostly in topical treatments due to the toxicity of the plant and the serious side effects if taken interally.

Medicinal researchers have discovered that what makes arnica so effective is that it acts as a natural vasodilator to capillaries under the skin. Dilating the blood vessels relieves pressure on the injured area and speeds healing of bruises and sprains by allowing new blood cells to rush to the injured area. So when you apply an arnica salve directly to your skin, you cause blood vessels to open, help relieve inflammation, and aid in pain relief.

We use Ow!-Ease more than any other cream or salve. Its handy, gluestick-type container makes it simple to apply and you don’t get your fingers messy putting it on. My husband, Paul, treated a direct hit in the ankle by a softball within an hour of the injury, and the treated area never turned purple. Only the surrounding area, untreated skin changed color, and once he noticed the difference, he treated the discolored area as well. Ow!-Ease helped reduced the swelling, inflammation, redness, and bruising. What should have been a huge problem lingering for weeks healed within a matter of days!

I’ve used Ow!-Ease on glaring red stretch marks to help minimize their redness and visibility. With little people in the house, toys, are often in places they shouldn’t be (like in the middle of the floor), and I ‘ve tripped on my fair share. Like most moms, I often hurry through the house to discover the cause of the latest round of crying and all-too-frequently run into the corners of tables and counters on my way. I discover unsightly mega-bruises hours (sometimes days) later and wonder where they came from and why they hurt so much. Ow!-Ease rescues my sore spots, and it seems I use it on myself as often as I do the kids. [Ow!-Ease can be found on page 34 of this catalog.]

Soothe It! Aftershave SpraySootheIt

I love Soothe It! Because the fragrance, though designed for men, is so gentle I’ m comfortable using it myself. Its lemongrass and sage essential oils appeal to both genders.

I relish Soothe It on my legs after a shower and enjoy the smoothing and soothing from both the aloe and the essential oils. Soothe It acts like one of those expensive in-the-shower shaving conditioners except you spray on Soothe It after you get out. It’s satisfying to know the good feelings are also good for my skin and not full of petroleum and chemicals.

Soothe It is a refreshing astringent on my face after washing. It gives it that tight feeling without being drying and the aloe discouraging acne and blemishes as well. Soothe It is a special treat in the summer months because I tend to not need a moisturizer at all and just spritz and go. As with Beeyoutiful’s HairShine, Soothe It can be used as an after sun spray because of the cooling, soothing aloe. It’s such a multi-purpose spray I keep one in the bathroom, one on the dressing table in the master bedroom, and another in my travel toiletry bag. [You’ll find Soothe It! Aftershave Spray on page 34 of this catalog.]

Beeyoutiful BalanceBeeyoutifulBalance

I often reach for Beeyoutiful Balance, the bio-identical progesterone cream. After much reading and study, I realized I had most of the symptoms of progesterone deficiency and decided to try Beeyoutiful Balance. We ran a great article on the use of progesterone cream a few catalogs back, so I won’t go into great detail about this amazing product, But I want to share my favorite use.

While every woman’s experience will be different because no two people have the exact same body chemistry, my use of Beeyoutiful Balance has resulted in lessening mood swings, a more consistent cycle, an almost instant feeling of calmness after I first apply it, and with all of those changes in me, a much happier hubby! My greatest benefit has been that, at the very start of my cycle when those annoying, painful cramps hit, I reach for Beeyoutiful Balance, apply it once and, within a half hour cramps are gone. I can go about my day and minister to my family as usual. Although I used to use typical pain relievers, they were hard on my stomach. So Beeyoutiful Balance delivers double relief. The first time I used Beeyoutiful Balance to relieve cramps, I was proud of myself for having figured out a natural way to feel better during what for years had been an uncomfortable time.

Peppermint Essential OilPeppermintEOil

It’s hard to pick a favorite essential oil when there are so many to choose from and all are so different in how they work and what ailment they help relieve. But I would have to say Beeyoutiful’s Peppermint Essential Oil is the one I reach for most frequently and as my universal, cure-all essential oil. Peppermint offers natural antiseptic properties and is a natural antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory, which makes it effective for many purposes.

Peppermint is typically known for relieving stomach indigestion and nausea so , instead of reaching for a piece of hard candy, we do things a bit differently at our house.

–          Hiccups. One drop of peppermint oil on the finger and into the roof of your mouth, quickly followed by a small glass of water helps relieve hiccups in about a minute (not recommended for small children as this can cause a burning sensation in the mouth.)

–          Fever. Especially for a small child or infant, mix a few drops of Peppermint Oil with Beeyoutiful’s Almond Oil and rub the mixture on the bottoms of the feet. (Almond helps the peppermint oil absorb more quickly than if used by itself and, as a carrier oil, it helps prevent burning of the skin.)

–          Bloating and gas. Particularly before bed when you just don’t feel right, a few drops of Peppermint Oil in the belly button should help with indigestion and aids in reducing bloating overnight.

–          Migraines. Peppermint Oil helps treat stress headaches and nausea. Rub a few drops of Peppermint Oil into your temples every few minutes while experiencing nausea or headache. You can also put a few drops into your belly button for nausea. Allow it to absorb, and then add a few more drops as needed. Apply it to your temples again when the oil does not appear glossy. That means it has absorbed into your skin and is working.

We also use Beeyoutiful’s Tummy Tuneup in conjunction with Peppermint Oil for nausea, heartburn, and indigestion. Both Peppermint Oil and Tummy Tuneup stay in the diaper bag so we have them for emergency situations when we are out. Head and tummy aches usually don’t get the better of us anymore.

Peppermint Oil is also an ingredient in my all-purpose household cleaning spray. Instead of other cleaners like Clorox Clean-up, I use it on the counters after cutting up chicken, on the kids’ high chairs after a meal, on the floor when a pet or child has made a mess, in the bathroom as my sink and toilet disinfecting spray, and so much more.

Ahh! I almost forgot to mention that I use Peppermint Oil in the Aroma-Pro Diffuser, too. I have to say, THAT is my favorite place to use it. I enjoy mixing it with just Eucalyptus Oil to help disinfect the air and kill germs, but a few drops of Peppermint Oil mixed in with a little of this and a little of that smells so good and…well, you get the idea. [Peppermint Oil can be found on page 29 of this catalog.]

I could keep going and share with you how I use more of Beeyoutiful’s many products, but the editorial police for this catalog limited me to just five. Come to think of it, that’s probably a good thing because I could share for hours (and pages!) how much I love all the many ways we use all-things-Beeyoutiful here in our home.

Hormone Balance with Natural Progesterone Cream- Fall 2008 Catalog

by Maranatha Owens

BeeyoutifulBalance

Most women cringe when they hear words like “PMS”, “hot flash”, or “night-sweat”. These seemingly unavoidable conditions plague most women in America, some to the point of complete debilitation.

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? I was very amazed to learn that women in unindustrialized countries rarely face the supposedly “inevitable” symptoms commonly associated with PMS and Menopause. In fact, for most of these women, the transition through the “change of life” is pretty much seamless.

When I first began researching natural progesterone supplementation, I was quite in the dark. I was still years from experiencing menopause myself, and really hadn’t spoken to many menopausal women about what they were going through. So I immersed myself in books on the subject of natural hormone balance, and simultaneously began interrogating every woman I knew regarding their personal experiences. Many pieces of a puzzle started to come together in my mind. Almost without exception, every woman I spoke with complained of a multitude of symptoms ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening. I also interviewed many young women in their 20’s and 30’s, only to find that they were dealing with a host of serious reproduction-related problems themselves. The symptoms were remarkably consistent from woman to woman, and as I read, it became clear that they all pointed to progesterone deficiency.

Who was Dr. Lee?

In my reading, I quickly stumbled upon Dr. John R. Lee’s books on natural hormone balance. He is hailed for his research on natural hormone balance, as well as spearheading natural progesterone supplementation therapy as a safe alternative to conventional HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), which has been proven to cause terrible side-effects and even cancer.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance

The following is a list of symptoms that many women with hormonal imbalance experience. It is by no means comprehensive. Some women have a few of the symptoms, while others have many.

–         Hot flashes

–         Allergy symptom, including asthma, hives, rashes, sinus congestion

–         Hypoglycemia

–         Infertility and early miscarriage

–         Depression with anxiety or agitation

–         Fibrocystic breasts

–         Uterine fibroids (which can cause frequent urination)

–         PMS

–         Endometriosis

–         Irregular menstrual periods

–         Water retention

–         Vaginal dryness and atrophy

–         Fat and weight gain, especially in the hips, thighs, and abdomen

–         Sleep disturbances (insomnia, less REM-time sleep)

–         Decreased libido (sex drive)

–         Mood swings-depression, irritability, memory loss

–         Headaches, fatigue

–         Dry, thin, wrinkly skin

–         Thinning scalp hair

–         Facial hair and hair in “other” places that it shouldn’t be

–         Bone mineral loss (osteoporosis)

–         Diffuse body aches and pains

–         Acceleration of the aging process

–         Breast cancer, uterine cancer

–         Autoimmune disorders such as lupus erythematosis and thyroiditis

–         Thyroid dysfunction

Do you know anyone with any of these symptoms? I think most of the women I know have at least some of these, including myself. I have always looked very young for my age, as do my mom and sister. I take good care of myself, drink a lot of water, and take fish oil, but lately I’ve been very bothered that the skin on my hands has begun to look extremely dry, thin, shrunken, and wrinkly. Natural hand creams didn’t seem to help. I found it interesting that that is one of the symptoms of progesterone deficiency.

What is Progesterone, anyway?

In a nutshell, progesterone is one of the primary reproductive hormones in the female body, followed by the estrogens and testosterone. Progesterone is necessary for conception as well as carrying a baby to term. In the ovaries, progesterone is the precursor of estrogen, testosterone, and other adrenal hormones, as well as steroids which are responsible for stress response, sugar and electrolyte balance, and blood sugar. This means that progesterone deficiency can cause a wide range of ailments, many of which seem unrelated to “reproductive” problems.

So why are women in industrialized countries susceptible to progesterone deficiency, while women in undeveloped countries are not?

There are several key reasons for this, most of which are found in our synthetic environment. Exposure to xenohormones, stress, eating soy products (knowingly or not), using hormonal contraception, chemical exposure in the womb, using HRT, and hysterectomy can all play into our imbalance. We’ll scratch the surface of these topics, and you can dig deeper on your own.

Xeno-what???

The term “xenohormone” and “xenoestrogen” refer to substances not found in nature that have hormonal effects. Most of us come in contact with these substances on a daily basis. “All xenohormones should be considered toxic; the majority of them have estrogenic effects on both male and female bodies,” say Dr. John R. Lee and Dr. Jesse Hanley in their book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause¹. The following list is also taken from their book. Comments in parentheses mine.

Common Sources of Xenohormones²

–  Solvents and adhesives (fingernail polish, superglue, contact cement, etc.)

–  Petrochemically derived pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides (On the grass, your apple, or the side of the road)

–  Car exhaust

–  Emulsifiers found in soaps and cosmetics

–  Nearly all plastics (Don’t we all store our food and water in plastic?)

–  Industrial waste such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) and dioxins

–  Meat from livestock fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them up (And dairy products)

–  Synthetic estrogens and progestins found in the urine of millions of women who take birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which is flushed down the toilet and eventually works its way into the food chain. (Yuck!!!)

What is Estrogen Dominance and what causes it?

Waaayyy too much Estrogen!

So what does estrogen dominance mean? It simply means that the body has too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. As Dr. Lee puts it, estrogen dominance “describes a condition where a woman can have deficient, normal, or excessive estrogen but have little or no progesterone to balance its effects in the body. Even a woman with low estrogen levels can have estrogen-dominance symptoms if she doesn’t have any progesterone.”³ Xenohormones which we are exposed to on a daily basis mimic estrogen in our bodies causing this serious imbalance. To top this off, many doctors prescribe women synthetic estrogen to deal with the symptoms of estrogen dominance, which leads to even worse estrogen dominance.

What’s wrong with not ovulating?

Estrogen dominance results in lack of ovulation. In short, after the egg, or ovum, is released at ovulation, the emptied follicle becomes the corpus luteum that makes progesterone. This is the primary way a woman produces progesterone. So if you don’t ovulate, your body won’t make progesterone in any significant quantity. It can appear as if you are having a normal menstrual cycle even though you haven’t ovulated, but the lack of progesterone can still cause symptoms associated with PMS, as well as making conception impossible. Even if one ovulatory cycle results in conception, the lack of progesterone in the body usually results in early miscarriage.
Remember: Pro-Gest-erone=good gestation.

STTRRRESSS!

Stress can also cause an anovulatory cycle (a cycle in which there is no ovulation). So can heavy exercise, serious illness, dieting, and extremely low calorie intake. Women who try juggling careers and family or have demanding or competitive jobs also tend to have anovulatory cycles. Sufficient sleep is absolutely essential to keep your body’s stress levels down!

Exposure to xenohormones in the womb

In addition, xenoestrogen exposure in the uterus can cause follicle failure for women later in life. This means that epidemic numbers of women are infertile because of the Windex, Miracle Gro, fingernail polish, and spray paints their mothers used while they were in the womb. It takes very little exposure to still experience the devastating effects of these powerful xenoestrogens. The reproductive organs of both boys and girls are extremely vulnerable to permanent damage while in the womb. What you can’t see can hurt you, and your unborn child!

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is also a common cause of estrogen dominance. Doctors convince women to have hysterectomies to deal with the symptoms of estrogen dominance. Unfortunately, conventional medicine compounds this problem by prescribing only estrogen and no progesterone (called unopposed estrogen) to these women. Many doctors lack proper education about the use of natural progesterone, as the pharmaceutical companies cannot patent, and therefore cannot capitalize on the prescription of these highly effective natural alternatives to conventional HRT. A sad but true fact is that pharmaceutical companies are the primary “educators” of our doctors, regarding the drugs that they sell. There is good reason that they don’t know about the natural, non-patentable, alternatives such as Natural Progesterone.

Hormonal Contraception

The majority of modern birth control methods contain synthetic hormones, or progestins, which are not the same as the progesterone produced by the body. These synthesized hormones have a long list of side-effects ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening, including causing cancer. These man-made hormones fool the body into not cycling properly, and thus conception is avoided. Almost all contraceptive methods pushed on the public today contain hormones. Beware! Your body cannot remain in balance when inundated with such a barrage of hormones.

Did you say that I ate estrogen??

O.K. I think this one could be the hardest to avoid for some people. Did you know that soy is not really a food, but a drug? It is extremely high in estrogen, unless fermented. And the hard part is that soy is in just about everything, from baby formula to “health food” crackers and cereals, to fast food hamburgers and canned tuna fish. Just read the ingredient list on any “box” of food you buy. In addition to soy, many foods contain high concentrations of xenoestrogens from the pesticides and growth hormones used to produce them. The three foods highest in pesticide content, and thus highest in xenoestrogens, are milk, coffee, and meat.

Cholesterol – You Need It!

The body needs good cholesterol, such as that found in butter, coconut oil, fish oil, and extra virgin olive oil, to manufacture progesterone. If it doesn’t have this vital building block, it cannot build. In contrast, rancid or hydrogenated oils like margarine, corn oil, shortening, peanut oil, and MOST other commonly used oils interfere with thyroid and hormonal balance in every way conceivable.

Please, give me some hope!

So what hope to women have? In a society where xenoestrogens lurk around every corner, we can choose to make lifestyle changes to protect our own health and that of our families. Of course, there are some things that we can’t change, but many we can.

Positive changes you can make to benefit your hormonal health and that of your family

  • Avoid exposure to chemicals that you know are dangerous.
  • Make lifestyle changes that lessen your stress load. (Don’t starve yourself, exercise too much, or take on too many responsibilities that you don’t have to!)
  • Eat a nutritious whole foods diet and drink lots of water.
  • Don’t store or heat your food in plastic.
  • Consume healthy oils and fats such as coconut oil. Avoid hydrogenated oils at all costs!
  • Get plenty of sleep-the ultimate healer.
  • Avoid hormonal contraception and HRT like the plague.
  • Help bring hormonal balance through using a Natural Progesterone Cream.

What is Natural Progesterone?

Natural Progesterone is “bio-identical” to the progesterone produced by the human body. This means that the molecular structure of Natural Progesterone cannot be differentiated when compared to the molecular structure of the progesterone produced by the body. When applied properly, a good Natural Progesterone cream will give the body the physiologic amount of progesterone needed to help bring balance to the hormonal system. It offsets estrogen dominance, bringing relief to a multitude of ailments including PMS and symptoms commonly associated with Menopause.

What about Wild Yam?

Wild Yam has a long and well-documented history of helping women’s bodies to gain hormonal balance. It is especially good for cramping. While this is true, there is a great deal of confusion about the difference between progesterone and Wild Yam.

In volume 13 of Cancer Forum, Dr. Lee sheds light on the issue by explaining that “…in the body, we make (synthesize) progesterone form cholesterol. In the lab, the chemist makes (synthesizes) progesterone from diosgenin. This diosgenin from the wild yam-like the stigmasterol from soybeans-is actually a precursor of a number of hormones. Thus, with only slight modification it can be made to duplicate the progesterone molecule the body produces so that it can be fully utilized as needed.”† This CANNOT be done by the human body. If a woman is deficient in progesterone, Wild Yam may be useful, and may very well aid the body in gaining balance, but it is NOT progesterone, and cannot do what progesterone can do.

Creams are better than oral doses of progesterone

Progesterone absorbs rapidly through the skin, into the fat, and then into the bloodstream, while oral doses of progesterone have to filter through the liver, lessening the benefits exponentially. This means that a transdermal application takes much less actual progesterone to get the same benefits as a megadose taken orally. In addition, using a progesterone cream is much less burdensome on the liver.

Natural Progesterone is NOT a drug.

It is not a drug, like the many progestins pushed by pharmaceutical companies, and thus, cannot be patented. This is one reason why many women are unaware of its incredible benefits. As stated before, there is big money behind HRT drugs, and someone doesn’t want you to know that there’s something safe and much less expensive that might replace their drugs.

The following chart is taken from Raquel Martin’s book, The Estrogen Alternative: Natural Hormone Therapy with Botanical Progesterone.

How Natural Progesterone affects the body

Characteristics of Estrogen Dominance vs. Characteristics of Progesterone Supplementation
Weight gain – Utilizes fat for energy
Insomnia – Provides calming effect
Uterine cancer – Stops cells from multiplying
Fibroystic breasts – Protects against fibrocysts in breast
Breast cancer risk – Helps prevent breast cancer
Depression – Acts as a natural antidepressant
Fluid retention – Acts as a natural diuretic
Thyroid imbalance – Assists thyroid hormone action
Blood clots – Normalizes blood-clotting mechanism
Migraine headaches – Restores oxygen to cells
Risk of miscarriage – Prevents miscarriage
Inflammation – Acts as a precursor to cortisone
Cramping – Relieves cramping (an anti-spasmodic)
Elevated blood pressure – Regulates blood pressure
Acne – Aids in skin disorders
Irregular menstrual flow – Normalizes periods
Restrains bone mineral depletion – Stimulates bone mineral density

Side-effects of Natural Progesterone

Natural Progesterone has very rare side effects, unlike its synthetic version. According to Dr. Lee, almost all side effects are caused by gross overdose or mixing other hormones such as estrogen and testosterone. Some women report that they experience estrogen dominance symptoms for up to two weeks after starting to use Natural Progesterone Cream, caused by a sensitization of estrogen receptors. Breast tenderness is common, but temporary. If a menstruating woman takes natural progesterone out of phase with her cycle, it could change the timing of her period or cause some spotting. All in all, it is extremely rare for a woman to experience genuine side-effects from properly using Natural Progesterone.

As Dr. Lee repeats many times in his books, more is not better! Use common sense and follow Dr. Lee’s guidelines. If you do the math, a 2 oz. container should last between 2-3 months, depending of individual usage.

Not all Progesterone creams are created equal!

There are many “natural” progesterone creams on the market today, but the majority of these creams contain other chemicals as preservatives or for fragrance. Ironically, some of these chemicals act as xenoestrogens, sending confusing signals and causing further hormone imbalance to the body. Dr. John Lee recommends that a progesterone cream contain 900-1000mg. of USP progesterone (concentration is regulated by the United States Pharmacopoeia) per 2 oz. container. Many progesterone creams, or so-called “Wild Yam” creams on the market do not indicate how much actual progesterone is in their product, or use obscure language to cloud or confuse the reader. This is because USP progesterone is expensive. Make sure that the ingredient listing indicates exactly how many milligrams of USP progesterone are in each container.

Learn, learn, learn.

Educate yourself on the subject of hormone balance. I highly recommend that you read one of Dr. Lee’s books, or one of the other informative books available on the subject. They will help you to fine-tune your use of Natural Progesterone cream, bringing the best possible results for YOUR body. The scope of this article is extremely limited and is not meant to diagnose or cure your personal condition, but rather to educate and provide a jumping-off point for your own personal research and journey toward hormonal balance. Please don’t stop here. This is a fascinating subject!
