Wild Yam Cream Benefits:
Amenorrhea: Absence of menstruation bleeding or suppression of menstruation. Women report returning to normal cycles within three months of using the Menstrual Discomfort protocols.
Aroma: Contains a natural preservative produced from essential oils.
Breast lumps and Fibroid cysts: Many women have reported with delight the complete disappearance of these conditions within months of using the cream.
Breast feeding: There is strong evidence to suggest that children receiving a healthy dose of hormones, Progesterone in particular, through their mother’s milk develop higher than normal IQ’s.
Bone density: Women who have used the cream over extended periods have reported improvement in their bone density with their bi-annual checks, including women with advanced osteoporosis. (The hormone progesterone facilitates the osteoblast bone building activity)
NOTE: We recommend that women wishing to improve bone density should also include supplementation and weight bearing exercise along with our cream in their program.
Contraception: We do not recommend the use of our cream in any way as a contraceptive. If a woman using an oral contraceptive wishes to normalize her menstrual cycle, we suggest that they use safe sex methods while using our cream to re balance their hormones.
Contra-indications: A very small percentage of women may experience an allergic response to one or other of the ingredients (less than 2%). The allergy normally appears as a mild rash on the area of application. The protocol to resolve this is listed on the user guide. We do not advise the creams to be used in conjunction with synthesized hormones unless the user is weaning off their use.
Depression: We suggest the Extreme Menstrual Discomfort or Menopause protocol.
Endometriosis and PCOS: Many women have reported excellent results in eliminating these disorders. It is recommended that the Extreme Menstrual Discomfort protocol be followed.
Menstrual Discomfort: Wild yam cream is an excellent medium for addressing menstrual cycle irregularities and disorders, quickly restoring regular healthy cycles, generally within three months, eliminating the associated symptoms of mood swings, pains and cramps, excess bleeding, sore breasts, depression and panic attacks.
Postpartum Depression: There is strong evidence to suggest that postpartum depression is a progesterone deficiency, and women who have continued through pregnancy, or restarted use of the cream immediately after birth, report no signs of depression when using our cream.
Pregnancy: Many women have reported successful pregnancies resulting from use of our cream on the Menstrual Discomfort protocol, and were delighted with the advantages in continuing during pregnancy, as a healthy supply of natural hormones helps to minimize or eliminate morning sickness.
CAUTION: If used during pregnancy, the cream MUST be continued without a break (¼ teaspoon am/pm) to at least the 7th month – it can also be used on the abdomen to reduce stretch marks.
Thyroid: A healthy supply of natural hormones will very likely overcome a hypoactive (under active) thyroid. Care should be taken to ensure that women using TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) are monitored closely to ensure that they do not become overactive when using the cream. Women report that it can be reduced gradually over three months to a point where it is no longer required.
Fertility: A large number of women have reported successful pregnancies after restoring their menstrual cycles to normal using the Menstrual Discomfort protocol – which takes on average three months to achieve – all have been delighted with their results including women coming off IVF.
Fluid retention: Women carrying up to two kilos of additional fluid when using synthesized hormones have reported rapid loss of excess fluid, as have others not on hormone treatment who are suffering from Estrogen Dominance.
Hormone Replacement: Women can, if they choose to, change over to our wild yam cream successfully. The transition may be uncomfortable as they generally suffer both drug withdrawal symptoms and a return of their menopausal symptoms. (Very few Doctors warn of this consequence) The transition should be gradual over three months, weaning off the former as they commence use of the cream. It is advised that no breaks be taken in the creams application for at least three months during the transition. The discomfort will reduce in frequency and intensity over this period. Women, who have ceased using synthesized hormones for some time and are no longer experiencing drug withdrawal symptoms, should experience little or no discomfort.
Hysterectomies: Women who have had their ovaries removed benefit from natural hormone production, as the body compensates using alternative endocrine organs and fatty tissues to produce their hormones and have reported identical positive results to other women. These women should follow the Post Menopause protocol and may rub a little cream into the inside of the wrist if experiencing a hot flush or night sweat.
Menopause: Pre-menstrual women using our cream can expect to enjoy a perfectly natural and uneventful transition to maturity. Menopausal women, who are suffering a range of uncomfortable symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats, depression, mood swings, panic attacks, aches, pains, and intermittent sleep patterns, can expect early relief from their discomfort with the aid of our cream. Using the menopause protocol these symptoms should be eliminated within three months, however not everyone responds in the same time frame. On average most women experience improvements at around two weeks. After three months they should generally be enjoying all the benefits of balanced hormones, and can shift onto maintenance dosage to avoid a return of symptoms.
NOTE: The biggest mistake women are inclined to make is to cease using the cream as soon as they experience the elated sense of wellbeing resulting from their balanced hormones – if they do their menopausal symptoms will gradually return as the benefits of the cream wear off.
Application: We recommend that the thinner skinned areas of the body such as inner arms, inner legs, stomach and chest/breasts, be used for the application of the cream for rapid absorption, using a different area with each application to ensure that the active ingredients are widely distributed. The active ingredients pass through the dermal layers and enter the bloodstream which then carries them to the nearest fatty tissues where they are stored and available to facilitate hormone production as and when required.

How to Use Wild Yam Cream:
A woman’s cycle is 28 days and this is how you will determine when to use this cream.
You will use this 16 days ON and 12 days OFF- every month.
NB: Day 1 of your cycle is always the start of your period, bleeding not spotting.
Use ¼ tea spoon – about the size of a quarter
Protocol for this cream goes as follows:
Day 1 (the start of your period)- Day 11: No cream
Day 12- Day 28 : Apply the Wild Yam cream as follows
Apply 1 tsp in the morning 1x per day. Apply into the skin under your upper arms, forearms, under breasts and around your tummy.
Apply 1 tsp before bed 1x per day. Apply to the inner thighs, chest and neck.
Continue this procedure until day 28 , always making sure that you apply to different areas of your body for the morning and different areas for night.
Every woman is different so here are some things you could encounter:
If you typically have very light periods, start your count on day one of spotting
If you do not have a period, start the cream and stop after 16 days, wait 12 days and begin again
If you have an absent period after the 28th day of your cycle, wait 12 days and begin the cream again.
If you begin bleeding at ANY day outside of your cycle that is now considered day 1 of your cycle. Stop the cream and begin again after 12 days. Repeat this process until your body has been trained to stay within the correct cycle time always stopping at day 28.
This is a product that you will use throughout the entirety of your life to keep your cycle regulated.
When you are half way through your jar, please let us know so we can make you more, as this is a custom made product!
If still menstruating, commence on day 7 through to day 20 with ¼ tea spoon from the jar or 1-2 pumps AM and PM, and then ½ tea spoon from the jar or 4-5 pumps AM and PM through to day 28, and then take a break of 7 days. If a period arrives at any time, count as day 1 and start again on day 7.
If Menopausal symptoms appear during breaks, use continuously for three months, extending the ¼ tea spoon from the jar or 1-2 pumps to three weeks of each month and the ½ tea spoon from the jar or 4-5 pumps for the last week of each month. After commencing use, menopausal symptoms should decrease in both intensity and frequency, disappearing by the third month if the above protocol is closely followed.
If at any time during this period HOT FLUSHES cause undue comfort, it will help ease the discomfort if a small amount is massaged into the wrists every 15 minutes until discomfort passes.
If Hot Flashes continue, it may mean that insufficient cream is being used, or used irregularly. Women who have chosen to come off synthesized hormones may need the supplementation of additional phytoestrogens during this period. At this time, the correct amount is what works best for each individual.
A mature woman who has passed through menopause and hasn’t had a period for over 12 months is Post Menopausal. They may either decide to use the cream ¼ teaspoon from the jar or 1-2 pumps AM and PM continually without a break or as we recommend creating a cycle and taking a 7 day break each month.
The easiest way to calculate a break is by using the calendar month with day 7 being the 7th day of each month then using ¼ teaspoon or 1-2 pumps AM & PM for two weeks and the remainder of the month ½ teaspoon from the jar or 4-5 pumps AM & PM. At the end of the month they would stop the cream and wait for the 7th of the following month before recommencing as before.
CHANGING FROM SYNTHESIZED HORMONES
When a women chooses to change over we advise the following procedure as outlined by Dr John Lee in his book ‘What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause’, that is if an Estrogen only tablet or patch is being used, to reduce the supplement to half when commencing the cream, and continue to reduce the supplement gradually over two to three months until it is no longer required.
If using tablets, these may be taken every second day, then third day etc. Patches can be cut in half and progressively reduced in a similar manner. With implants, it is wise to delay until the last three months of their life before commencing the cream. If using an Estrogen and Progestin combination, Dr Lee suggests ceasing using the progestin immediately and reducing the Estrogen as above.
Each of the above protocols are intended for the first three months only, after three months women are generally feeling so good, they are inclined to think that they do not need to continue!
We advise that at the three months when they are feeling great, to progressively reduce the amount of cream until you detect that you are sliding off your feel good plateau, at this point you can increase it a little to reclaim your balance – you have then determined the right amount for you. It may be as little as one eighth of a teaspoon once a day from the jar or 1 pump or it may be as much as the original protocol, generally it’s somewhere in between. If a woman chooses to use more Wild Yam than we suggest, .i.e. by also using the cream as a face cream, the body will dispose of any excess nutrients it doesn’t require through the body’s normal disposal systems.
