How do I apply Natural Progesterone?
Apply it on the skin and rotate areas. One day, put it on the right arm. One day, put it on the left arm. One day, put it on the chest. One day, put it on the right leg , etc. If you keep putting it on the right arm for many days, then the subcutaneous fat saturates on the arm with Natural Progesterone and you can't absorb any more. The topical dose for Natural Progesterone is 20-60 mg/day or 1-3 dropperfuls per day.
Our product formulation is so safe that you can take it by mouth. However, in this oral method of taking it Natural Progesterone dose is 200 mg/day.
Is topical Natural Progesterone safe?
We are topically supplementing at 20-60 mg/day of Natural Progesterone. During pregnancy, during one day of 3rd trimester pregnancy, a woman produces 400 mg/day of Natural Progesterone.
Natural Progesterone is the SAME bioidentical hormone that your body produces.
What do we know about pregnant women? Women that are pregnant multiple times have a smaller chance of endometrial cancer and breast cancer.
In contrast, synthetic prescription progestins cause cancer according to a recent copy of the Physicians Desk Reference. Synthetic prescription progestins are chemically modified to be different than your own hormones to be patented and be extremely profitable.
Why is the TOPICAL dose for Natural Progesterone 20 mg/day and the equivalent ORAL dose for Natural Progesterone 200 mg/day?
Yes, this is true. The TOPICAL Natural Progesterone dose is 10 times that of the ORAL Natural Progesterone dose. This is because the ORAL Natural Progesterone dose is prefiltered by the liver and 90% inactivated.
Do I need a prescription for topical Natural Progesterone?
Topical Natural Progesterone is Over the Counter.
Why is my hair thinning and I feel cold? Why can't I get rid of fat?
Estrogen dominance caused from chemical estrogens (xenoestrogens) decreases your sensitivity to thyroid hormone. A lab test will show your thyroid hormone levels to be NORMAL or LOW NORMAL. It is your sensitivity to thyroid hormone that is decreased.
Too much estrogen says build up fat for the pregnancy. Estrogen does this by lowering your sensitivity to thyroid hormone.
Do I need a hormone test before starting Natural Progesterone? OR ... How come my hormone test is normal? OR ... I want to show you my hormone test.
Clinically and generally, I have not found the saliva test to be useful. This is because you are measuring estradiol and progesterone.
Estrogen dominant diseases such as endometriosis are caused by xenoestrogens (chemical estrogens) in synergy with estradiol. But it is the xenoestrogens that are the culprit, and you are NOT measuring xenos with the saliva test.
For instance, in many cases, laundry detergent is estrogenic. Male trout growing up in an aquarium spiked with laundry detergent grow up looking like female trout.
However, the hormone saliva test measures estradiol and progesterone NOT laundry detergent.
So the simple question, "Do you have breast tenderness and/or bloating just before your period?" is a better test for estrogen dominance than the saliva test because it covers both your hormones - estrogen and progesterone AND xenoestrogens.
Does diet make a difference for my disease?
In general, with the exception of coffee, plastic in the microwave, and chocolate, I have not found diet to be that important. It is much more important what you put on the skin. This is because the liver inactivates 90% of the food put in the mouth. However, when you put the health care product on the skin, you get 100%.
Other physicians such as Jesse Hanley, MD believe dairy is very bad.
For instance, a 20 mg/day dose of topical Natural Progesterone is equivalent to 200 mg/day of oral Natural Progesterone. This is because the liver inactivates 90% of the oral food. Anything put on the skin bypasses the liver and goes directly into the body.
So, anything you put on the skin is 10 times the oral dose.
Laundry detergent, skin lotion, shampoo, soap, cosmetics, and anything that goes on the skin is very critical. In general, if you are willing to change what goes on the skin, then you will get well.
How many bottles do I need?
For the mild stuff, 1/2 bottle per month may work for you. For the major stuff, 2 bottles per month may work for you.
Do I have to take Natural Progesterone for the rest of my life?
Some women choose to take it for the rest of their lives. They like it. There is no danger. Women are pregnant with continuously high levels of progesterone for 9 straight months. However, with mild stuff, some women may only need 2-3 months of Natural Progesterone IF they are really good with their avoidance list. For major stuff, 6-9 months of Natural Progesterone may be needed. Some women like to "cheat" on their avoidance list and find that taking regular Natural Progesterone is easier.
Is Natural Progesterone made from yams?
Yes, the Natural Progesterone that we use in our product is USP pharamaceutical grade Natural Progesterone. The raw material
that is used to make Natural Progesterone is from yams. The Natural Progesterone is bioidentical to what
your body makes. It is the exact same molecule. All Natural Progesterone is now either made from yams or soy as
the starting material. A large pharmaceutical factory converts the diosgenin in the yams to Natural Progesterone.
Thirty years ago, they used to extract progesterone from placentas and the price used to be thousands of dollars
Zava, PhD, the guru of phytoestrogens, has stated that the human body does not have the enzymes to convert yam
extract to estradiol or progesterone. Patients that take yam extract report an increase in energy, but there
is NO conversion in the human body of yam extract to estradiol or progesterone.
