Hey, @bomally , I also take DHEA. I started taking it when menopause symptoms began kicking in many years ago. It was a game changer for me. I took 15mg every other day, and it helped with hot flashes and gave me some semblance of a sexual appetite again. I recommended it to my cousin recently because she's aging and feeling the affects of that. Her menopause symptoms are debilitating. She's afraid of DHEA though, because it evidently does have some risks associated with it. I'm just curious, would you say the benefits are worth it?

I stopped taking it for a while, and then went back to it again, because I started having some bladder urgency. I don't know why my body and mind intuited that the DHEA would fix that for me, but it did. Am I experiencing some sort of placebo effect or is it really the miracle I think it is? I take the smallest amount, about 10mg every other day. I feel like it's kind of a great thing.

I know that DHEA requires a prescription in the UK, is that true for Canada as well?

Apologies if this is a slight necro, but I've been taking supplements for a while now. I eat pretty healthily, to be honest, but I definitely felt like I needed to kick start my vitamins and nutrients intake.

I don't really go for anything fancy; just some multivitamins and a liquid iron supplement (the latter is very useful since I'm a freelancer working crazy hours some days).

Anyone here using CBD?

Yes, I am, and funny enough I just posted a link to my source in the CBD thread.

Sorry for the late reply....

DHEA is available in health food store here in Canada BUT I get mine as prescribed by a doctor so it is a better quality and it is compounded by a pharmacist. NO it is not covered under ANY health insurance.

I see an "anti-aging" doc and as a result of some tests he did, I am on microdoses of three hormones...AND the DHEA as well. The bioidentical hormones are delivered transcutaneously (on the skin in a cream). We are STILL trying to get my thyroid homrone levels to balance out BUT no success so far. He upped everything at last visit and so far I am tolerating the increased dose of thyroid hormone.


The BEST thing I ever did for my health was not in taking supplements ... in was taking 6 - 8 ounces of fresh vegetable juice EVERY DAY. ESPECIALLY green juice. I am at the green grocer every 3 days and I go through bags of kale, spinach, beet greens, chard etc. I also juice something yellow or orange and usually some apple to make things taste better.

Juicing has been much more effective than ANY supplement regime I ever had. My immune system loves it and my skin does too!

Bladder urgency can be related to muscle imbalances in the pelvic region (basically core muscles). That pesky problem has popped up now and again as I am working on core strength. Lately however, it has settled down and does not seem to be a problem.

Try D-Mannose also for the bladder. It can help to rid the bladder of debris and biofilm from old infections. My 98 yr old mother swears by it!

It is available at health food stores and on line too.

I hope this information helps somebody.
