Alfalfa sprouts shorten bleeding

10 March, 2005


I just thought it would be helpful for a lot of your readers to know that I experienced alot of prolonged bleeding due to the mirena iud and my Rav suggested eating alfalfa sprouts ( a good source of estrogen) I actually bought the Freeda natural alfalfa dietary supplement tablets and found it to be pretty effective. I doubled the regular daily dosage for a day or two. Instead of my bleeding lasting for 14 days, I cleared up faster.
I wish more people would be aware that this web site exists! I find it to be a tremendous source of information since I live in a frum society I don’t speak to friends about their experiences…
Your site is clear cut and straight forward which makes it very helpful. Thank you. May you have much continued success!


Thank you very much for both the information and the compliment.
