Trying to cure a disease without medication… Where to begin?
My strategy takes its starting point in a life style change that led to my lowest prolactin level ever. In the summer of 2011 I participated in a 3 months volunteer project in Ghana, Africa. When I left my prolactin levels where 2440mIU/L but when I returned home they were 1550mIU/L – my lowest ever. My lifestyle had been turned upside down while in Africa.
I don’t know exactly what made my prolactin levels spiral down while in Africa, but I’ve considered the following:
- No milk
- Fewer calories (I lost 7kg/15lbs)
- More good fat
- Eggs (I had one egg every day)
- Physically hard work (we built schools)
- Fresh vegetables and fruit
- No sweets (=no processed sugar)
- No stress
- Sun exposure (D-vitamin)
- Sleep (Bedtime no later than 9 pm. Up at about 7 am)
- Water – and sweating (It was hot and I was physically active)
One of those, a combination or something I’ve forgotten or neglected cures Hyperprolactinemia!
On the negative side I was on constant antibiotics due to the risk of malaria. Also I had just prior to my trip gone through a series of vaccinations. Plus I was still taking Dostinex. But nevertheless my prolactin levels dropped significantly and I believe food and lifestyle is the key. It’s worth trying out anyway, right?
