Proudly made in Australia. Anna’s is a listed natural medicine with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine to relieve menstrual pain and spasms and help reduce occurrence of menopausal symptoms. The active ingredient of Wild Yam dioscorea villosa is Diosgenin, a powerful Phyto Sterol which has the ability to activate the bio-chemical lipid pathway aided by numerous enzymes, leading to the production of natural compounds Ubiquinone, Dolichols, Squalene and Cholesterol. Cholesterol is the precursor to all the adrenal hormones. This pathway is known as the 'Mevalonate Pathway'.
MENSTRUAL PAIN AND SPASMS: Counting the first day of your period as Day 1 commence applying 0.625mg (1/8th of a 5ml metric teaspoon) (1/4 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) am and pm from Day 5 then increase to 1.25g from Day 19 to Day 28 (1/4 of a metric 5ml teaspoon) (1/2 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) stopping on Day 28.
Your period should then come and the day your period arrives is again Day 1 and you would recommence using the cream from Day 5 as above. However remember whenever you experience a period with normal blood flow that day is always Day 1 and you would stop using the cream and count to Day 5 again.
If you experience spotting mid cycle continue with the cream until Day 28 or until you experience a full period with normal blood flow if that day is before Day 28.
Please be aware you may initially experience heightened symptoms as the nutrients are addressing underlying problems, this experience is often referred to as a 'healing crisis'.
If you are experiencing intermittent periods accompanied with hot flushes and night sweats we suggest you follow the 'Help to Reduce occurrence of Menopausal Symptoms' protocol.
MILDER MENSTRUAL DISCOMFORTS AND SPASMS: Start on Day 12 with 0.625 mg (1/8th of a 5ml metric teaspoon) (1/4 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) am and pm then and increase to 1.25g from Day 19 to Day 28 with 1.25 g (1/4 of a metric 5ml teaspoon) (1/2 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon).
A period should then come and you would recommence the cream on Day 12.
HELP TO REDUCE OCCURRENCE OF MENOPAUSAL SYMPTOMS: Counting the first day of your period as Day 1, commence applying 0.625mg (1/8th of a 5ml metric teaspoon) (1/4 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) am and pm from Day 7 through to Day 20 and then 1.25g (1/4 of a metric 5ml teaspoon) (1/2 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) through to Day 28 then stopping the cream.
Your period may come the next day which would be Day 1 and you will recommence the cream on Day 7.
If a period doesn't arrive count to Day 7 and recommence using the cream as above.
Women who haven't had a period for several months and don't know when to start using the cream may start at any time counting the day you begin as Day 7 and follow the above protocol.
PERSISTENT MENOPAUSE: We would expect menopausal symptoms to decrease in both intensity and frequency and disappear by the third month if the above protocol is closely followed.
If at any time during this period hot flushes or night sweats cause undue discomfort we suggest to massage a small amount of cream into the inside of your wrists whenever a flush or night sweat occurs.
If hot flushes or night sweats continue it may mean that insufficient cream is being used or used irregularly.
POST MENOPAUSE: If you are a mature woman who has passed through menopause and hasn't had a period for over 12 months you are Post-Menopausal.
For the first 2 months we suggest using 0.625mg (1/8th of a 5ml metric teaspoon) (1/4 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) am and pm every day for two months. If you are still suffering from hot flushes and night sweats we also suggest rubbing a little extra cream into the insides of your wrists whenever these occur.
After 2 months we suggest creating a cycle for yourself by the calendar month, with Day 7 being the 7th day of each month.
You would then use 0.625mg (1/8th of a 5ml metric teaspoon) (1/4 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) for 2 weeks and then increase to 1.25g (1/4 of a metric 5ml teaspoon) (1/2 of a small 2.5ml teaspoon) through to the end of the month, however many days in that month and then stop, recommencing 7 days later.
ALLERGIES: If you experience a topical allergic reaction you may avoid sensitivity by applying the cream only to the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. In very rare cases a rash may also appear in areas where the cream hasn't been applied, in this case you would need to stop using the cream.
ATTENTION: If your symptoms persist we advise you to talk to your health professional, preferably one who is knowledgeable in Natural Therapies.
For external use only. As directed massage well into chest, neck, breasts, abdomen, inner arms & thighs, these are areas of the body where the cream is particularly well absorbed. Select one location for each application.
