I'm impressed by the good people and the wealth of knowledge here. Wish you all good luck on your journey. Here are my stats, what I've done so far, and new plans.
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 180 lbs
Band: 36 (bra band size: actual tape measurement is 38)
Cup: C (D for shelf bras)
Three children ages 18, 15, 14, none breastfed, wish I could have
No physical disorders or abnormalities, but my father had breast cancer at age 64.
Vitamins: multi and 200 mg C
Supplements: skin-hair-nails, co-enzyme Q10, ginkgo biloba, brewer's yeast, glucosamine
Diet: high carb, mostly fruit, only 2 days a week fish, eggs, or meat
Exercise: cut back to walking, cycling, gardening, to avoid muscle build up
Formula: Erdic "breast-gro" 4 capsules (3500 mg total hops), works for me, even without FG.
Herbs: FG 10,000 (!) mg in weekly cycles, tried SP and WY but those only woke me up at night.
Massage: used to extract FG in alcohol, later in soy oil, now dry massage only.
Tea: peppermint + licorice mix, started FN again.
Status: stalled, but double Erdic or FG doses still cause swelling.
I admit I should have started reading this forum years ago.
I'm cutting FG to 3000 mg immediately, stop supplements and carbs, then break on MT.
After the break, at summer solstice, make batter again, ramp up, switch Erdic to hops powder.
This should bring me close to Eve M's program.
Not sure about re-starting SP, may try spearmint tea or others instead. (Gorgeous Blonde?)
Thinking about maca, but only if it fits in the program. (Wahaika?)
Would appreciate help on the anti-androgen, and on maca.
Thanks for this A list resource!
