From this study (2 weeks ago):
To clarify the above; my depression is the best it's been in years, but like the whacka-mole game, the decrease of depression has lead to an increase in anxiety/stress and more panic attacks than I've ever experienced in my entire life. I am NOT suicidal, however I have always experienced suicidal ideation. Regarding my eating disorder, this came on in my mid 20's. It's not related in anyway to body-dismorphia. I am not anorexic or bulimic, nor have I ever been. Last year i was hospitalized due to extreme weight loss, suicidal depression and anxiety. Traditional and new antidepressants have never worked on me, more so they render negative responses.

I tried alot of things when I had menorrhagia, and popping Standard Process Organically Bound Minerals probably bought me some time, but I was falling apart. What worked? SHEPHERDS PURSE!!!! I researched potential side effects so I knew to take it slow. I made a tea from the tincture, and I only had to drink a half cup of tea three times a day.... WOW!!!!! By the first day I knew it was working. By day three, bleeding nearly 100% gone. Since all of this happened I've started taking things like - Stinging Nettles, Holy Basil (suppresses Estrogen), Ecklonia Cava (helps with sleep, it's a seaweed), Bladderwrack (another seaweed that nourishes the body). Hibiscus lowers estrogen which is great. Some herbs can boost estrogen. If you want to find studies go to the U.S. National Library of Medicine online. This is how I hunt there - put in a word or two about what you seek info. on.
Now using these words ONE at a time... search. Look at the bottom of the study for the conclusion to see if you want to study it out more. Herb-Herbal-Vitamin-Bark-Root-Leaves-Berries-Seaweed-Plant ... Watch out for herbs that boost estrogen. I was taking alot of Milk Thistle then found out it was pro-estrogen. So I lowered my dose. Many women are estrogen dominant and that can lead to Menorrhagia. Having enough progesterone is what promotes new bone growth (estrogen maintains what you already have), prog. supports the thyroid (estrogen can suppress it). This page I found explains progesterone well. It's at "Taylor Medical" google with the word progesterone.
BTW.... for stress... ashwagandha, lemon balm (it's pro estrogen tho), holy basil (suppresses estrogen), l-theanine and niacinamide are great from my experience. Niacinamide made a HUGE difference in anxiety.
