Progesterone & Your Health
In order to accurately evaluate the effects of the hormones estrogen and natural progesterone, on Menopause, PMS, Fertility, and Osteoporosis, it is necessary to identify the sources of these two primary female hormones. Distinguishing safe and natural hormones from those that are foreign and carcinogenic will allow women to make informed choices.
This information will help them to avoid the unwanted effects of low or no progesterone (Estrogen Dominance) and the subsequent unpleasant symptoms associated with Menopause & PMS. Other major disorders, including breast cancer, stroke, osteoporosis & heart disease have also been shown to be the result of an imbalance of hormones.
Under the normal, healthy circumstances of a woman’s monthly cycle, estrogen should be the dominant hormone for the first two weeks and is balanced by natural progesterone, which should be the dominant hormone for the latter two weeks.After a woman has entered menopause, whether it is due to age or surgery (hysterectomy), female hormone production is reduced to approximately 40% to 60% of the pre-menopausal levels. While the need for a proper balance of estrogen and progesterone are important to all adult women, it is more critical at this time and many informed women have chosen a properly formulated natural progesterone cream.Problems arise, however, when foreign estrogens and synthetic hormones are introduced into the body that interfere with natural hormone production and normal thyroid function and when natural progesterone production is consequently suppressed by these environmental antagonists.What are the sources of foreign hormones or xeno-estrogens?
