I have been on SSRI's for 8 years, which would include Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro. I had wanted to stop taking them but was on them for postpartum depression along with anxiety thru the years. The difficulty on my own to wean off of them was too severe, that would include dizziness, tingling in my head, anxiety worse, onset of anger, and more.
I met Sera Johnson when I was 33 weeks pregnant with our son who is now 6 weeks old. At that time I was weaning off my zoloft to try and deliver our son without being on the meds, due to the side effect of them. I was on 50 mg at that time, had already weaned down from 100mg. Sera shared with me about Progessence Plus, and how it could help me level my progestrone levels.
I thought ok I will try it, so I started applying 2-3 drops a day on my pulse points, wrists and neck twice a day, I noticed an immediate difference. I was feeling good! and HAPPY! I was very shocked at the way I was feeling because I hadn't felt that way in such a long time.
So long story short I weaned quickly off my zoloft with very little side effects. I used Progessence Plus, as needed along with 2x's a day, PLUS the Joy oil blend, and Stress Away roll on. PRAISE GOD! I no longer need SSRI medication and am happier than I have been ever on those meds. God is the business of healing his people and I praise Him for bringing me Progessence Plus.
One more thing I will add, I delivered our son on no medicine and he is 6 weeks old and when I thought my hormones would be all out of wack, they arent and I know its due to Progessence Plus, the best is yet to come!
