You’re very welcome!
Yikes - sounds like you’re dealing with quite a huge hormonal/detox uproar and it’s worse than a little human emerging from your pelvis. I believe you, and you deserve a gold medal!!! You’re birthing a whole new you. Some women on this forum - of differing ages - have reported severe bleeding during the first few months of keto. Just for the first few months, not longer than that.
All kinds of things are going on, including excess estrogen getting released from some changing fat cells and flooding your glandular system, gut bacteria changes, and detoxification of who knows what. This can wreak havoc temporarily (meaning, a few cycles). There’s also the chance you’ve got a fibroid?
Yes, there are herbal allies and foods and other remedies that can powerfully help you through this.
Good thing you raise pastured cattle - you must normally have decent iron levels with your intake of red meat. And right now you need plenty of iron. Floradix, the Swiss herbal iron supplement is also strong and great.
Yes, daily liver capsules can help you a lot - you need the renewed strength and energy that liver (and other organs too) gives. Even better would be your own farm’s raw liver, blended up/hidden in some kind of tasty smoothie (chocolate raspberry with all real ingredients?). Apparently raw liver does not have a strong taste and can be blended. I bet a few tablespoons of it daily would heal some of your symptoms real quick.
Conventional treatments for your symptoms include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS), oral progestins, oral progesterone, hormonal contraception, and tranexamic acid (all awful imho).
Whereas the superfood Ginger is a potent herbal anti-inflammatory, an NSAID on par with prescription strength Ibuprofin. Works fantastic for severe pain as well as aches - and it facilitates functional circulation and moves the dysfunctional so the body can help itself. For severe symptoms, 2 capsules 3 x day a day is considered a safe dose according to many published studies on dosages.
Here’s a study on about Ginger and menorraghia:
And this one is handy too
And, IF you have someone to help you and you’d like the TLC - hydrotherapy is a simple but powerful help for moving pain & toxins/congestion through functional circulation. A very warm footbath/soak for 15-20 minutes, whilst seated in a comfy chair, wrapped in a blanket and with your head covered to be as cosy as possible. Using a roasting pain usually works, and having a kettle of hot water very near by to top it off as the water cools so you can stay immersed for longer. Another option is to do hot/cold/hot - follow it with a colder water immersion, then do another warm water soak to create a huge flush that rebalances all your processes. You can also use essential oils in the water, or drops on a hankie that you inhale directly - Rose and Sandalwood cool and soothe the sensitive uterus and glandular system.
My own experience has been very different - my cycles got regular like clockwork for a couple of months in early keto, and were symptom-free - before the menopausal rhythm returned. Maybe because of having detoxed a lot over the previous years of sweat and mind-body routines, I don’t know, but it’s been a healthy and pleasurable experience (unlike my teens and twenties!). My own mother had her uterus removed at age 40 due to symptoms like yours - but she didn’t have keto or Ginger or bone broth!
Wishing you any support you need on all levels!!!
