Premenstrual Syndrome Management

Do you dread “that time of the month” when it seems like your hormones wreak havoc on your life? Are you too tired to exercise, too uncomfortable to socialize, and in too much pain to even get a good night’s sleep? You are not alone. An overwhelming 85% of women have menstrual cycles that include discomfort and disruption – at a minimum. According to the Mayo Clinic “Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) has a wide variety of signs and symptoms, including mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression. It's estimated that as many as 3 of every 4 menstruating women have experienced some form of premenstrual syndrome.”

Premense-T by LifeSeasons promotes healthy menstrual cycles and hormonal balance, nourishes reproductive tissue, supports tone and circulation. Chaste berry has been used historically to support balanced progesterone levels, promote healthy cycles and may help to ease breast tenderness as well as menstrual cramps. Dong Quai is used to support blood circulation, hormone balance, and normal cycles. Premense-T needs to be taken over a period of at least 2 months before effects will become apparent. This gives the body enough time to help hormones rebalance, so that cramps, breast tenderness, and irritability starts to diminish or become less frequent.

Symptoms tend to recur in a predictable pattern. But the physical and emotional changes you experience with premenstrual syndrome may vary from just slightly noticeable all the way to intense. Managing these symptoms while trying to function in your daily life can be extremely difficult when symptoms are severe. Some women will develop (PMDD) Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder which requires a diagnosis and further treatments, depending on how much it affects their ability to function and manage their emotions. Please consult a doctor if you feel like this may be a condition you may be dealing with.

Premense-T by LifeSeasons can be a great addition to your daily routine coupled with making changes in the way you eat, exercise and approach daily life. Eating smaller, more-frequent meals may reduce bloating and the sensation of fullness. Limiting salt and salty foods to reduce bloating and fluid retention. Eating foods high in complex carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains may also be beneficial. If you can't tolerate dairy products or aren't getting adequate calcium in your diet, a daily calcium supplement may also help. Engaging in at least 30 minutes of brisk walking, cycling, swimming or other aerobic activity most days of the week can help improve your overall health and alleviate certain symptoms, such as fatigue and a depressed mood.

How to nourish your Hair, Skin & Nails

No matter what age or stage you are, everyone wants to have healthy hair, skin and nails. But getting and maintaining them can be a major issue if you are getting enough protein. It is important to maintain a healthy diet for overall health, but getting 30 percent of your daily calories from protein (preferably lean) can help keep your hair, skin and nails growing and healthy..

Beau-T by LifeSeasons supports healthy tissues throughout the body. It nourishes Hair, Skin and Nails and is packed with Biotin to help support hair and nail growth. After 6 to 8 weeks of use, customers have noticed faster hair growth, stronger nails, and healthier skin. Beau-T by LifeSeasons is truly a product that every woman can ultimately benefit from adding to their healthcare and  beauty regimen.

The old adage “When you look good, you feel good” might seem a little superficial, but there’s some truth to it. As a woman, having lustrous hair, radiant skin, and healthy-looking nails, can brighten your day and lift your mood. And, more importantly, healthy hair, skin, and nails on the outside mean healthy tissues on the inside.

Beau-T supports tissue health throughout the body without the side effects of pharmaceuticals. Nutrients like collagen, biotin, MSM, horsetail, and turmeric along with other vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs work together to help maintain and promote the health of hair, skin, and nails.

Your body naturally produces collagen, and you can consume it through dietary sources such as chicken skin and fish skin as well as collagen supplements. Biotin is an essential vitamin that helps with the production of keratin (a protein that’s in charge of forming nails, skin and hair). Some research, including a 2016 study, has shown that a lack of biotin in your system can lead to hair loss. MSM is essential to the production of collagen and keratin, promotes healthy skin development and repair and may improve skin firmness, elasticity and hydration. When it comes to horsetail, many advocates of using it for hair care suggest its impact on collagen and calcium for bone regeneration are also beneficial for hair health and appearance. Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components that may provide glow and luster to the skin.

Preventing & Treating Urinary Tract Infections

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that can include the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Most infections involve the lower urinary tract which includes the bladder and the urethra. Women are at a much greater risk of developing a UTI than men. An infection in the bladder can be very painful and annoying. It is recommended to remedy a UTI as early as possible or serious health problems can result if a UTI eventually spreads to your kidneys.

Urinary-X by LifeSeasons is targeted support for urinary tract health and yeast infections. Fast and effective relief within 24-48 hours. Contains both Cranberry and D-Mannose which are both extremely popular for the treatment of these conditions. Contains all-natural ingredients to support the urinary tract, encourage a normal immune response, and promote healthy levels of microflora. Provides antioxidant support for healthy immune and urinary function. 

Urinary-X by LifeSeasons helps to promote health of the urinary tract and vagina. It includes anti-adhesion substances and prebiotics that promote healthy immunity and management of bacteria in the urinary tract. Urinari-X is most effective when taken preventatively by people who are prone to getting bacteria in the urinary tract. Most people see a reduction in problems with bacteria once they start taking it regularly. People who take Urinari-X for acute conditions should double the daily amount, and they usually see an ease of symptoms in 24-48 hours. Everyone is different, and results will vary from person to person. The key is to maintain consistent use every day to see best results.

Both women and men can get infections in the urinary tract. But if you are a woman, you have an even higher likelihood – a 50% chance – of having a urinary tract infection during your lifetime. And if you’ve had one, you know how painful they can be. They are most often caused by bacteria, so keeping your urinary tract healthy is your first line of defense. Urinari-X supports a healthy urinary tract without the side effects of pharmaceuticals using natural ingredients that help manage bacteria in the urinary tract.Formulated with plants and fatty acids like Caprylic Acid, Cranberry, Uva Ursi and Grapefruit which are all known to help with urinary tract health. Also containing D-Mannose, a naturally occurring sugar with anti-adherence properties that keeps bacteria from sticking to the walls of your bladder and urinary tract. All of these work together to support a healthy urinary tract.

Perimenopause and Menopause relief

We are all very fortunate to be living during a time when life expectancies keep increasing, but the longer we live, the more health concerns we have. And if you are a woman and you’re into your 40s, you are likely starting to experience the effects of menopause or perimenopause. It is something every woman goes through, and it can come with some pretty unpleasant experiences.

Pausitivi-T by LifeSeasons nourishes tissues affected by the hormonal shifts of menopause. It helps to ease the hot flashes and sweating that many women experience as they navigate the change of life by supporting balanced hormones and a healthy reproductive system. After taking daily for about two months, customers have noticed diminished or less intense menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal tissue discomfort.

If you haven’t had a period for 12 consecutive months you are most likely in the beginning stages of Perimenopause. Some women experience menopause before age 55. If menopause occurs before 45, it’s considered early menopause. Surgical interventions (like hysterectomy) or ovarian damage due to chemotherapy may lead to early menopause.  Your body begins to produce less estrogen and common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. Perimenopause often begins in your 40s, but some women experience it even in their 30s. As you approach your late 30s, your ovaries start making less estrogen and progesterone — the hormones that regulate menstruation — and your fertility declines. In your 40s, your menstrual periods may become longer or shorter, heavier or lighter, and more or less frequent, until eventually — on average, by age 51 — your ovaries stop releasing eggs, and you have no more periods.

Pausitivi-T can help you have a more positive transition through menopause without the side effects of pharmaceuticals. Natural ingredients help nourish the tissues affected by hormonal changes in women. Powerful plants from nature like Sage, Chasteberry, Soy Isoflavones, and Black Cohosh work together to help support your body’s ability to manage unpleasant symptoms like night sweats and hot flashes.
