  1. What if you do not have a gallbladder? How does that affect hormones? Is there a specific supplement you would recommend to help with breakdown of fats if you are without a gallbladder? Thank you

    • It’s a good question! I eat fermented carrots (grated and then naturally fermented) often instead of fresh. I see results with that. My understanding is that cooking the carrots, or pureeing/blending them, is what compromises the estrogen-binding qualities.

    • Dr. Ray Peat, who is credited with the discovery of using carrots for PMS, doesn’t mention that fermentation would change the fiber quality. I eat fermented carrots (grated and then naturally fermented) often instead of fresh. I see results with that.

  2. The carrots really help. I eat at least one whole raw organic carrot every day. Some days more than that. I am 49 and my periods were getting shorter and shorter. Down to about 23 or 24 days. The carrots gradually brought them back. First 25 or 26 days. After a year, I just had my first 28 day cycle in about 4 years. This is soooooo easy. No excuse not to try it!

  3. Changing from disposable feminine products to chemical free reusable ones also help to ease periods. After I switched I went from 7-8 day cycles to 2-3 days and no more cramping!
