The female body makes about 27 different estrogens, but, just one progesterone.
Progesterone is critically important for the health of every cell and organ in a woman’s body.
When you fail to make enough progesterone during the progesterone phase of your cycle (days 14-28 or ovulation to the day before menses) you may experience one or more of the following (symptoms may be short-term; however, if left unchecked, may continue for years):
- Accelerated aging
- Allergies not limited to asthma, hives, rashes, sinus congestion
- Autoimmune disorders such as lupus erythematosis and thyroiditis, & possibly Sjoegren’s disease
- Breast cancer
- Breast tenderness
- Cervical dysplasia
- Cold hands & feet as a symptom of thyroid dysfunction
- Decreased sex drive
- Depression with anxiety or agitation
- Dry eyes
- Endometrial (uterine) cancer
- Excess copper
- Fat gain, especially around the abdomen, hips & thighs
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Foggy thinking
- Gallbladder disease
- Hair Loss
- Increased blood clotting (increasing risk of strokes)
- Irregular menstrual periods
- Magnesium deficiency
- Memory loss
- Mood swings
- Polycystic ovaries
- Premenopausal bone loss
- Premature puberty
- Prostate cancer (men only)
- Sluggish metabolism
- Thyroid dysfunction mimicking hypothyroidism
- Uterine cancer
- Uterine fibroids
- Water retention, bloating
- Zinc deficiency
One Simple Thing… ?
Can it be that simple? …One Simple Thing…? 40 years of research and 23 years of clinical experience attest to the fact: if you restore this most important hormone, progesterone, to optimal levels during the progesterone phase of the month and avoid the numerous, common environmental chemicals (petroleum-chemicals) you will balance the 27 different, naturally occurring estrogens, and, thereby, avoid the imbalance known as estrogen dominance, politely named “PMS”.
What if I no longer have a monthly cycle?
Your menstrual cycles may have ceased for the following reasons:
- Surgery (hysterectomy)
- Age (50-51)
- Acute hormone imbalance
If you have not had surgery and are younger than 50, you may have an imbalance of estrogens and progesterone. Your goal would be to achieve the optimal balance safely and efficiently. How?
If you no longer have a cycle due to chronological menopause (50-51) or surgery, your need for hormone balance is likely more critical than when you were a cycling female
the One Simple Thing…
While avoiding the myriad of environmental estrogens, a properly formulated bioidentical progesterone cream, one free of petrochemicals and one formulated with American made progesterone will correct progesterone deficiency.
