Life is guaranteed to throw in the unexpected.
A combination of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and pelvic inflammatory disease, meant Samantha needed to undergo an emergency hysterectomy. She was just 30 years old at the time.
"When my doctors explained to me that the full hysterectomy I required included the removal of my ovaries, a procedure that would cause my body to go into instantaneous early menopause, I was distraught. I couldn’t believe what was happening to me. I was incredibly blessed to already have my son but nevertheless, the news came crashing down as a life-altering shock."
Operation complete, Samantha's body was set to begin early menopause, for which she was prescribed hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the form of Evorel Patches. "I started off using 100mg patches, which is a pretty high dose as it is, and that dosage was increased every year for 15 years. HRT proved a lifeline for me; preventing me from experiencing many of the dreaded side-effects of menopause such as hot flushes, weight gain, mood swings and memory loss. However in reality, the additional hormones were just masking the issue."
HRT guidelines recommend prescriptions for a maximum of 15 years and for most women starting perimenopause in their forties, this carries them through to completing menopause but of course, Samantha had been forced to start the transition much earlier. "As I neared 45, I began to grow increasingly concerned about having to come off HRT. I didn’t want to throw my hormones out of whack or begin experiencing any of the nasty side effects of menopause. When I heard about the incredible power of LYMA to help women balance their hormones, reducing their menopause symptoms naturally and without side-effects, I knew I had to give it a go.
Spurred by reading the impressive LYMA reviews, Samantha told her doctors that she'd like to try taking LYMA to in place of HRT, only to be met with distain. Her medical team were unaware of the evidence-based formula and thus, they were adamant that LYMA wasn’t going to sufficiently balance hormones or support her through menopause.
What they didn’t know is that LYMA isn’t like other supplements. LYMA is in a class of its own. Unlike the majority of supplements, LYMA is formulated using the highest quality, peer-reviewed ingredients that are clinically proven to work. Each ingredient has been fully characterised and fully standardised, so that you know exactly what the active component is and guarantee that there is a standard amount of this active present in every capsule. Furthermore, every ingredient is present in its most bioavailable form making it easy for the body to absorb every last piece of powerful, patented technology.
"During my first year taking LYMA, I was able to reduce my dose of my HRT to just 50mg without feeling a thing out of place. But it gets better. I’ve now been taking LYMA for 18 months, and for the past six I have been completely off the patches and have not been taking any form of HRT at all. And as if that weren’t enough, in the past six months I have not experienced one hot flush, have suffered from zero mood issues, haven’t felt nauseous and haven’t had trouble focusing or gained weight. In fact, I’ve not had a single menopause symptom. Plus, my skin is glowing, and I’ve had no dryness, redness, inflammation or spots. It’s as though menopause never happened to me."
"Another massive difference that LYMA has on my life is that my chronic fatigue has become less severe. I used to need to nap every day too, sometimes for hours. But since I started taking LYMA, I’ve been waking up feeling refreshed, clear-minded and ready to take on whatever the day throws my way. I can’t remember the last time I had a nap after lunch. I feel so much more balanced and I feel free from the shackles of my illness. My quality of life has skyrocketed, and I have LYMA to thank.
Overall, I feel like a changed woman. I’m more energetic and much happier and I look and feel better than ever. I have no trouble sleeping, my moods are consistently high, and I’ve not experienced a single hot flush or night sweat. My skin, hair and nails look incredible. I feel better than I ever thought possible. It’s no exaggeration to say that LYMA has changed my life."
Though not limited to being just a menopause supplement, the unique combination of patented ingredients in the LYMA formula works brilliantly to treat many of the associated symptoms. Ashwagandha is an ancient adaptogen that can elicit a sense of calm and aid sleep; both of which are essential for the symptoms of menopause. KSM-66® Ashwagandha in LYMA is the most powerful and only proven form of this adaptogen and is just one of the reasons that LYMA is so well-placed to help women transition through the menopause.
LYMA also contains peer-reviewed Vita-algae D3™ shown to be absolutely instrumental in returning the body to homeostasis during menopause. Blended with this, is Cognizin®; a nootropic and potent brain-health nutrient that has been clinically proven to enhance brain power, increase attention span, and slow mental decline in women during menopause and beyond. Cognizin® helps to keep your brain balanced and healthy and keeps your hormones in check. Cognizin® has been optimally formulated in LYMA to help you feel your best.
