Ask Dr. Erika Q&A's

I have been taking the vitamin and mineral supplements as well as the natural progesterone cream for about 6 weeks recommended by Dr. Ann Gittleman in her book Before the Change. The past 2 weeks I have had a lot of puffiness and bags under my eyes. I am overweight and have slightly elevated blood pressure (128/86). Any reason for my eyes looking this way? It's the worst first thing in the morning.

Dear Toni:

I am not sure I know what you are taking. Sounds like the combination of products you are taking is not accomplishing the desired results.

Your eyes are probably puffy because you are retaining fluid.

If you would like more help figuring out what to take and how to feel better, go to my website www.Drerika.com.
I am sure I can help.

Best wishes,

Dr. Erika
