Natural Progesterone
 
There are several hormonal related conditions in women that indicate the need for progesterone. They are: osteoporosis, PMS, hot flashes, loss of libido, water retension, fibrocystic breasts, fatigue, and depression. Conventional doctors typically treat these with estrogen. 

A cream that reverses osteoporosis and subdues PMS.

What Is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a principal female reproductive hormone which naturally balances estrogen, the second major female hormone. Many women have excess estrogen, which increases the risk of breast cancer cancer of the uterus, and osteoporosis. Excess estrogen can also severely worsen premenstrual syndrome (PMS). To balance progesterone/estrogen levels, many doctors prescribe synthetic progesterone, progestin, which has recognized side effects. Natural progesterone's side effects are minimal. 

Why Too Much Estrogen?
During menopause, a woman's progesterone level eventually drops to zero. At the same time, estrogen drops only about 40%. Since the two hormones work together, this creates an imbalance. The obvious solution is to add more progesterone. In addition, estrogen is supposed to be eliminated through the bowels, but a high-fat and low-fiber diet promotes the growth of bacteria in the intestines which break down estrogen into forms that are reabsorbed into the bloodstream instead of being eliminated. High-fiber diets are helpful in promoting estrogenís elimination. 

A healthy liver converts estrogen to less active, noncarcinogenic forms. However, consuming too much alcohol, sugar, fat, and caffeine causes the more active forms of estrogen to recirculate through the body. 

Moderate exercise is also a component in balancing the functions of the body and building bone strength. Diet, exercise, and natural progestorone will almost always correct the imbalance. 

John R. Lee, MD, the pioneer in the field of progesterone therapy, says that taking natural progesterone lowers the risk of osteoporosis, PMS, fibrocystic breast conditions, ovarian cysts, miscarriage, menopausal symptoms, and breast and endometrial cancer. (CLICK HERE for details on Dr. Lee's book, called the most important book ever written about menopause.) 

Evidence that natural progesterone relieves PMS conditions and menopausal symptoms is based on the clinical findings of Lee and other physicians. Evidence that it prevents and even reverses osteoporosis and prevents certain forms of cancer is based on the common scientific understanding that estrogen and progesterone must be in balance to prevent bone loss and certain cancers. 

Most natural progesterone is made from diosgenin, a plant sterol abundant in the Mexican yam (Dioscorea villosa). Manufacturers convert diosgenin to the identical progesterone molecule that the body produces. Therefore, progesterone is natural. It is not a synthetic substance. Progestin is synthetic, because it is not found naturally in the body. Please note that the various creams currently being sold in many health food stores for the treatment of menopausal symptoms, containing Mexican wild yam without natural progesterone, are useless. The diosgenin contained in the yam must first be converted to progesterone, a process that the body cannot do. 

Side Effects
Some side effects of synthetic progestin include bloating. headache, fatigue, weight gain, and depression, and it can actually increase the symptoms of PMS. According to Lee, natural progesterone causes no side effects in the dosages he recommends. 

Dosage and How to Use
Lee recommends using a cream which supplies between 20 to 30 milligrams of natural progesterone per day. Absorbed through the skin, the progesterone by-passes the stomach and liver. Progesterone taken orally is chemically changed in the stomach and liver and is far less effective. (Plain Mexican yam creams contain only diosgenin, not progesterone; the body on its own cannot convert diosgenin into progesterone.) Lee suggests that women apply a small amount of the progesterone cream daily, from days 12 through 26 of their menstrual cycle, to their breasts and buttocks. Use about one ounce of cream during the fifteen-day period. Some women need more to relieve symptoms, and others less The amount needed may decrease over time, and you may discontinue its use after a year or two to see how you do without it.  

Case History
Natural Progesterone helped Joan Beckmeyer end nightly drenching menopausal sweats.
"Progesterone cream is wonderful," She says.
 

Menopause was pretty much hell for Joan Beckmeyer, fifty-two, of Somerville, New Jersey. 

"During the day, I had the most incredible hot flashes you could imagine," Beckmeyer says. "And at night, I had these sweats that left me absolutely drenched. I'd wake up and have to clean up my soggy body." Beckmeyer was otherwise in good health and steadfastly avoided drugs prescribed by her physician. But she was also practically at wit's end and was considering succumbing to synthetic estrogen and progestin. Then, a friend recommended that she read Dr. John R. Lee's book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. It made sense to her, and she began using a natural progesterone cream. 

"For the first month or two, I didn't notice any change," Beckmeyer recalls. "Then, during the third month, I realized that I hadn't gotten up that night with a terrible sweat. And then I stopped having hot flashes during the day. 

"Not only that - I feel a lot better, too," she adds." I have a lot more energy. The progesterone cream is just wonderful, and I'm no longer embarrassed to sleep over at friends' houses." 

Warning!
Premarin and Provera can be dangerous! Synthetic estrogen treatment increases the chance of cancer of the uterus eight times! In fact, estrogen is the only cause of cancer of the uterus! Estrogen treatment has also shown to be a contributing factor in stroke and heart disease among women. 

Estrogen is the conventional treatment for osteoporosis. Yet, it does not reverse osteoporosis. Progesterone does actually reverse osteoporosis. Bone density tests have shown that progesterone treatment even in women over 70, have reversed osteoporosis. Typically there is a 15% annual increase in bone density when a woman uses progesterone cream.
