Page 6 | Abby's Magazine - Hello Ms. Abby, I am an overweight 27- year old female. I am not sexually active so there is no way I could be pregnant, plus my period has been iffy since it started when I was nine years old. I had a regular period for about two or three years before it started to come on sporadically or not at all. I haven't had a menstrual period since sometime last year or so, though I do spot on a rare occasion. I came to see Dr. Chi last year, or the year before, and he did tell me what pills to take. But, due to my recent move, I have lost the paper he gave me and haven't been taking the pills I have in my cabinet. Would you be able to recommend something for me to take, either of his or something that you have at the store? It would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Aleah Dear Aleah, Dr. Chi recommends Myomin and Chi-F to balance hormones. These two products will help regulate your menstrual cycle. Often, cessation of your menstrual cycle is a sign of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which you should have your doctor rule out. PCOS is related to your insulin levels. So have your A1C and blood glucose levels checked. Also check the hormones FSH (Follicular Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinizing Hormone). Dr. Chi might have suggested "Diabend" to correct for any insulin resistance, which is closely related to estrogen imbalance as well as PCOS. Feel free to contact me for a complimentary consultation. I also offer free hormone seminars on a regular basis. Check our website for dates. Sincerely, Abby Hello, I am a 51- year old woman and my doctor told me my liver is doing quite bad (fatty liver). I am overweight and trying to lose weight. I asked him about medicines and he said there is none other than losing weight to slow the process. Are there any natural medicines to heal the liver? My gallbladder was just removed in December and I think that made it worse. Any recommendations? Thanks! Sarah Hi Sarah In my experience, the one product that has worked amazingly well for all liver related challenges is Dr. Chi's "Liver Chi" (in capsules or granules to make a tea). It has removed "fatty liver" and reduced viral load to zero in my Hepatitis clients!! Take it until your doctor says you no longer have a "fatty liver"! Sincerely, Abby Dear Abby Can you tell me anything about the relationship of Vitamin K and Warfarin? Does Warfarin destroy Vitamin K, which I understand is necessary for calcium to be absorbed into bone? I have been told that I should take Warfarin for the rest of my life since I am subject to blood clots, but I also lost a substantial amount of bone density. I was told by one nurse practitioner that Warfarin is "nasty stuff" and that one of the side effects is bone loss. This seems reasonable since most of the information about Warfarin says to limit Vitamin K because it interferes with the action of Warfarin. However, none of the side effect information along with the Warfarin tablets mentions bone loss. Is there any natural substance, without side effects, that will help prevent clots the way warfarin is supposed to? Harry Dear Harry Vitamin K inactivates Warfarin. We have a biological requirement for Vitamin K, but do not have a "need" for Warfarin. Recent studies show Warfarin has a marginal advantage over aspirin in preventing strokes, but had a significantly greater effect in producing fatal hemorrhages. Overall there were no differences in mortality. Frankly, I'd stick with aspirin (1/2 baby aspirin daily). Other "blood thinning" alternatives that can be used in addition to aspirin, which I think will further reduce the likelihood of blood clots without the adverse effects of Warfarin, include "Vein Lite" by Dr. Chi, fish oil, turmeric, and nattokinase. To help with maintenance of bone density, I suggest New Chapter's "Bone Strength" and a Vitamin D3 blood level of 65-70 ng/ml.
