Ovary pain is pretty much gone…
Ovary pain is pretty much gone… and cycles are more regular than before! I will probably always take your Progestelle, as long as we live on this planet we are exposed to Xenos—there is just no escaping it. For me especially, since I travel on business a lot. (I actually had to check out of a hotel that was recently remodeled… I started bloating and bleeding and the fumes kept me up all night—my hormones went crazy!) I keep spreading the word about your product and you should be getting some new customers soon…
For sure use testimonial... I'm yer no. 1 fan! ;)

Thank you for giving me my life back.
The last 10+ year I have been suffering from anxiety, being nervous around people, being very sensitive I would cry over little incidents, I suffered from depresson for many years, I always felt my hormone were off balance and did not know what to do, 7 years ago I went to a HMO doctor, the HMO doctor would not prescribe me any medicine for my hormone being off balance.
I have been using Progestelle for 3 months ( www.womhoo.com ) 512-275-6963 at Women's Therapeutic Institute, LLC. P.O. Box 200144, Austin, TX 78720
I feel 90% better I feel I have my life back again I could laugh at the most simple things, I do not cry over the little things anymore, I am generally a happy person again.
My next purchase is going to be Fibrovan for the Fibroid in my Uterus / Ovum.
Progestelle and Fibrovan is an all natural product if you read the attachments or sign into the internet to their website, you can read more information on the products.

Life has changed dramatically
Hi Dr Eckhart,
I have been using Progestelle for over a year now ( 1 dropper day 14 - 26 ) .... life has changed dramatically even though I had no underlying problems other than pre-menopausal symptoms and PMS.
4 of my friends have started using bio-identical progesterone , 2 of whom are using Progestelle.Happily, 2 of my friends' symptoms changed very fast but the two who used other creams have not seen much of a change at all. They are now considering ordering Progestelle ..
Ordering a product over the internet is a little scary ... happily it has been a huge success :)
Last month I ran out of oil 3 days early :(
Finances were a little tight and so I have only been able to order this week . I really hoped that it would not make a lot of difference ....
I am so impatient to get back to where I was .... I am not sleeping the same, brain fog is back, I am irrationally irritable, emotions all over the place and miss the desire for my darling husband ( who is happily recommending the oil to his friends ).
Lesson learned ... this is too important to go last on the budget ... when Mum is happy, everyone is happy :)
Thankyou for your marvellous product and giving women hope that they can live a hormonally balanced life.

My 5 fibroids were no longer seen on the test
To the best of my understanding, according to ultrasounds prior to and after taking the remedies, my 5 fibroids were no longer seen on the test. (One was over 5 cm in length, previously.)
I'm doing great. I have been on this product for some time due to extremely heavy cycles due to fibroids. Over time, the cycles become regular although not lighter. For the past several months I have not menstruated, but after starting to drink an occasional coffee again, I have now had break-through.
I am 52 1/2. Is there some point in the future that I will not have to take this?
May 12, 2010
Editors Note: If you are really good about your avoidance list, then after while you will not need to take the supplements.
I feel good.
I am still using only 1 pipet in the evening before bed. I have had no migraine yet and also no period. Not eating chocolate. I feel good.
In my recent blood test of 17/03 all my hormones are nice and low. Last year my 17-Beta estradiol was nearly 300, now only 57.9 and progesterone is 56, LH 23,80 and FSH 38,80, so I think I am not oestrogen dominant anymore. Or at least, not at this moment in time.
I will keep going a little longer with the Progestelle, just in case and I feel good with it. TSH was 2,18 (range 0,35 - 5,50). They did not check for T4, T3 and Free T4 and Free T3, so I am not really 100% sure if all is ok, but by going by how I feel, I think it is correct. I feel good and have enough energy and motivation.
If this means I am through the peri/ menopause, it has been a very easy transition. I wished I had used this natural progesterone 5 years ago when my first symptoms started (missing periods and weight gain, moodiness). But you think it is nothing to do with beginning the change, I thought it was the heat of living in Southern Spain, since we had recently moved here.
Thank you very much and have a good weekend.

Editors Note: Most likely the chocolate, caffeine and/or cocoa butter that the patient was using was elevating the patient's estradiol. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine. This particular patient used a soap containing cocoa butter. The cocoa butter was absorbed directly into the body bypassing the liver. Chocolate taken orally is less of a problem because it is prefiltered by the liver.
I can say that taking Fibrovan has diminished the constant pain to almost 0 (Zero)
Just wanted to tell you how the progesterone oil has improved things for me over the last four months. I also added Fibrovan two months ago as the constant pain with endometriosis was not entirely gone, however I can say that taking Fibrovan has diminished the constant pain to almost 0. I have also been able to reduce my thyroid medication.
The problem is that I have had very heavy bleeding during my period and also my period came a week early this month. I have felt faint during the bleed and it has been quite painful with intestinal upset too. None of this is particularly a problem, its just that I am trying to work out why I am now nauseous with stomach discomfort after the bleed. I'm not sure if it is hormonal or a virus. I also have a lot of acne.
I cant seem to get rid of the nausea with slight diarrhoea and constipation alternating which I have had for six days now.
I am putting on around four pipettes of oil a day and have stopped the Fibrovan for now.
Any advise would be gratefully received.

The pain is far less, more like just a feeling now. I feel like this is very positive for me! Thyroid issue is always a bit complicated but armour thyroid dose reduced and overall am able to do more work which is important as a freelancer.
Thank you so much, I will continue with the oil and fibrovan at the level that works. I am excited at the ongoing possibilities and have hope which I havent for a long time!

Doing great! I hardly ever get a headache.
Doing great! I hardly ever get a headache. Still on progesterone twice a day, every day. Eliminated most chemicals from lotions, etc., am following the "Traditional Nutrition" food lifestyle (by Sally Fallon), never eat out at restaurants, eliminated coffee, but drink tea, let's see, well, can't live without my progesterone and yours is the best because it's more potent, and I love the coconut oil base because coconut oil is so good for you, and thank you very much, Dr. Eckert for continuing to build and support women who need help. It's been what, 5 or so years that I have been ordering from you and every year I feel healthier than the year before. I'm 58 and feel better than I did when I was 35.
God bless, Diedre H.

She went for her mamo this Monday past and the 'cyst' is gone!
My girlfriend has been using the progesterone for 2-3 months now along with the appropriate vitamins to combat a 'cyst' in one of her breasts. She has 'dense' breasts as well. She went for her mamo this Monday past and the 'cyst' is gone, they said come back in a year! Would the progesterone work that fast? (I hope so!) Would she be able to expect the dense breasts to return to normal with extended use as well?
Also, didn't you write/say that the progesterone would also increase a woman's libido? Her's has certainly gone up!
Thanks again - Jay H.

Editor's Note: If she is really good about her avoidance list, she may not need progesterone after several months. Estrogen Dominance decreases sex drive, adding progesterone boosts sex drive. Dense breast tissue should return to normal, if she is good with her avoidance list.
First time for over a year I did not get a migraine. Now I also see it on my stomach and legs, they look less cellulite-y. Fantastic!
Dear Mr Eckhart,
I just wanted to let you know that for the first time for over a year I did not get a migraine with the start of my period. I cannot tell you what a relief that was. I still can't get over it!
I also have lost some water retention, which I first noticed around my neck area. Now I also see it on my stomach and legs, they look less cellulite-y. Fantastic!
I applied 1 to 2 pipets (20 - 40 mg) at night the moment I felt my breasts getting painful, about 10 days before the start of my period.
I wasn't sure if I needed to stop the progesterone first to let my period start, but the period started by itself anyway. I kept applying the progesterone till 2 days after the start of my period, because these are for me the most "dangerous", where I can expect a migraine.
I have not felt any adverse effects. I slept good, but I do anyway with my Magnesium I apply on my skin before bed.
So thank you very much for all the advice and producing a progesterone that truly is natural. I would definitely recommend this product with confidence to my patients.

We gave birth to an 8 and a half pound baby boy that was 22 inches long and in 100% health.
I received my order today, thanks! I will be good for another nine months now.
I am attaching a pic of our baby boy we had last year. I stayed on the Progestelle for the first three months of my pregnancy until my body was making enough progesterone on its own. We gave birth to an 8 and a half pound baby boy that was 22 inches long and in 100% health. I also started my Progestelle again about one month after having our son so I would not have any post partum issues. Our son is now on year old and I have not had any post partum depression and my periods remain light. Since we do not want any more children I only stop my progestelle for the week I am on my period. My periods are light and very little discomfort. Thank you for your product and the information you send with it. I have many instances when I can share my success with others and I tell them about your product.
I have had four children over the past 25 years and never had a miscarriage or any symptoms of one. I had a placenta previa with my first child and I also had severe vomiting for three to four months that required hospitalization. The problem with getting pregnant this last time was the fibroid in my uterus. It seems that the fibroid had grown so large it was nearly growing out my cervix. The reason I began the progestelle was that I had been having worse and worse cycles (obviously the growth of the fibroid) and actually had a period for two months with bleeding so bad I used 3 tampons and one pad at a time and that only lasted an hour or two. I went to many doctors and they did not help. I was so scared I was going to become anemic I began taking iron supplements and drinking icees just to get through the day at work without passing out. I was, however, beginning for forget things that I did not usually forget. It was at this time that I began my own online research, found you, ordered progestelle and my period finally stopped. The progestelle helped me get by a few months until I could schedule surgery and time off to remove the fibroid. After that, I still stayed on my progestelle and my cycles were actually not excruciating anymore. They were so bad before I had the fibroid removed that I would lie down with lots of tylenol and still cry for hours. I have a high pain tolerance so for me to cry was a bad sign. Once that was removed I got pregnant within 3 months after we had been trying for 4 years.
I also had NO vomiting with this child either. Not sure why, I understand the the b vitamins help with that a bit. Anyway, I have the lightest, easiest cycles that I have ever had in my life since I have been on your progestelle. I have had severe periods since I was 16, but with the fibroid ( that took doctors four years to find) they were even worse. Progestelle has also taken away, for the most part, my PMS. My PMS was really bad but that too has gone away with the progestelle.
The doctors that I went to for years and tried to tell that I had problems told me I was having "good, heavy, normal periods". Obviously those doctors were ignorant, to say the least. I don't usually treat myself with online information but the lack of doctors that actually want to learn about your progestelle is staggering. It seems that all they could do was make fun of what was working for me, and probably attributed it to "being all in my silly blond head". Finding you and your product has literally changed my life . Thanks. I don't know how you are so open to leaning how to help women but "more power to you". I appreciate your willingness to learn and help women like me. I only wish that there were a world full of more people like you.
Sure you can publish my testimony. The only thing I did not mention is that my breast milk dried up pretty quickly when I started my progesterone again after having our son. I did get 5 weeks of breastfeeding in before I started my progesterone again though. I would be glad to share my testimony because it seems that some "doctors" are a bit ignorant about this progesterone and tend to scare prospective people away from using it when it is really safer than the crap doctors prescribe. I have had many doctors make fun of my progesterone and one did it to my face. It is simply not fair that women get the scare tactics from the doctors they go to concerning natural progesterone alternatives. I would love for my testimony to be an encouragement to other women so that they will not let other doctors scare them out of using it due to unjustified ignorance.

I had a healthy pregnancy.
Around September of 2008 my cycles got all wacky. I would bleed one day, skip a couple, start again, skip a few, etc. They were not consistant, like they had been since I started as a child (10 yo). Also, it wasn't the normal 'color' either. it was brownish and liquidy.
I started using the progestelle and stopped using as much as I could of the avoid list that comes with the progestelle and my cycles normalized and in a few months I was pregnant. I had a healthy pregnancy (have had several miscarrages prior) and a beautiful baby girl.

The tenderness is greatly improved and the pain all but gone.
I was told a couple of years ago that I had polycystic breast disease. The cysts had been increasing in number and size over about 8 years. They didn't bother me until about a year ago. One Cyst became very obvious, and I had it aspirated and tested. Last summer, I started having very uncomfortable pain and tenderness in the areas of the cysts. I was also experiencing common symptoms of estrogen dominance.
I am now 49.
In researching, I came across your information and made some changes. I have eliminated a lot of the xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens and been using Progestelle since September. The tenderness is greatly improved and the pain all but gone. I no longer have fluctuations in my energy level and I have been able to loose some of my "bubble wrap" abound my middle. I sleep better, focus better, and just don't feel so old and tired. I have followed your plan of one ounce for three months and then reducing the dosage, and am beginning my 5th month now. I will continue to use Progestelle.

This has worked wonders for me so far with my endo symptoms, no cramps, no swelling of my chest, and no more bloated stomach.
Abt. 3 or 4 yrs ago, I had a lump in my stomach the size of a cantalope, it turned out to be my right ovary that had grown to be that size, so I went to my gynocologist and he said I needed immediate surgery to have it removed. So a week later I went into the hospital for surgery and had it removed along w/ my appendix b/c it was attached to it. Luckily it was not attached to my bowel. He diagnosed it was endometriosis after the surgery. For a while everything felt better, but shortly after all of my symptoms came back. As of now I've been on Depot Lupron twice for a period of 6 months throughout the years to stop my period so that my body could recover for a while, also I have been on and off birth control. Currently I have been on continuous birth control for abt 3 months, and right b4 that I had a round of depot lupron. So I've only had my period abt. 2 times within the last 9 months. My doctor recommended I see a infertility specialist, so I did and was told it would be impossible to become pregnant on my own without doing in-vitro fertilization due to my severe endometriosis and only having one ovary. He was afraid that if I went off the birth control pills long enough to try to conceive that my endo cysts would grow back and prevent it. He also said I have pcos. My chest is sore and swollen all of the time, I feel nauseas and I have gained abt 20 lbs within the last year, and I get severe cramping without any warning. I've been exploring tcm, acupuncture for fertility, I don't know where to turn. I want to get pregnant on my own b/c I can't afford to do ivf and I don't want to be on all of these medicines that make me all wacky. Please help. Can progestelle help me??
I can't even have a sexual relationship w/ my boyfriend b/c having sex is so painful and burning, I've lost the desire b/c I don't enjoy it anymore.
This has worked wonders for me so far with my endo symptoms, no cramps, no swelling of my chest, and no more bloated stomach. But for the entire 2 weeks I've been on progestelle I have had migraines like every other day and have had to leave work early quite often. Do you have any suggestions as to why I would be getting such bad headaches like this??? I really need to stop them so that I don't miss soooo much work.
Thank you for your quick responses on my questions.
I am still using the progestelle, just finished my first bottle yesterday and my headaches have subsided since I last e-mailed, which is awesome, so I am feeling better on the progesterone oil and cut out the xenoestrogens I put on my skin.
But, do I have to stop using the progestelle oil in order to get my period??? Or do I continue using 3 dropfuls at night like I have been until my period arrives then stop the progestelle?? I'm just a little confused abt. that part of the regime.
The last time I had my period was Nov 20th, and it lasted for 12 days.
Dec. 16, 2009
Editor's Note: The increased headaches with the use of Progestelle is from xenoestrogens or chemical estrogens in her environment. To get rid of the headaches, get rid of the xenoestrogens. Sometimes lotions and sunscreens take about 1-3 months to wash out of the body.
Constant environmental estrogen exposure leads estrogen receptors to down regulate or become "sleepy". Taking progesterone cream "wakes up" the estrogen receptors and estrogen now has a greater effect. This greater effect of the estrogen yields headaches.
The solution is to cut out xenoestrogens.
Stage 4 Endometriosis
Hi Dr. Eckhart,
I have been using the Progestelle since Day 6 of my cycle (My last period started on 11/4 so I started on 11/10) I have been using 2+ to 3 dropperfulls per night daily. I have gone through an entire bottle so far and just opened the second one tonight.
I just got my period (early) today so it has only been 19 days since my last one.
1. Is this normal? Mine are usually very regular and about 26 - 28 days apart.
2. Do I continue the Progestelle during my period or stop and then start again at day 6 of my new cycle?
I am also having acupuncture to balance my hormones and deal with the pain as well as having eliminated xenoestrogens.
All of this seems to be helping GREATLY with the pain. It was not even noticable this month and usually I have plenty of warning with pain before my period starts.
Also, if you would include that I have eliminated laundry detergent in favor of 1/3c. white vinegar and 1/3c. salt for colors and replacing the salt with 1/3c. washing soda for whites.
I think that would help a LOT of people, and saves money.
No need to read ingredients!
I am also making my own natural cleaning products from common ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice and corn starch. Recipes can be found on the internet.
I really think the elimination of the xenoestrogens (endocrine disruptors) has been KEY.
I will send you an update next month.

Don't worry about irregular periods. This is common. The real question is whether or not you feel better or not.
Just take the Progestelle whenever you do not have period.
IF you have diligently cut out xenoestrogens, especially the ones on the skin, then the period should normalize after 2-3 months. The xenoestrogens should wash out, in general.
Constant estrogen ingestion in the form of pills or xenoestrogens causes the estrogen receptors to down regulate. In other words, the woman's body has so much estrogen that the estrogen receptors become less sensitive. A good analogy would be when you enter a noisy room. When you first enter the room you notice the noise. However, after being in the noisy room for a while, the noise becomes less noticeable. Your ears become less sensitive to the noise. In effect, your ears down regulate. Thus, if you take estrogen supplements or get doses of xenoestrogens, after a while, your body will become less sensitive to estrogens. This is because your body has too much estrogen, and the body tries to become less sensitive. However, when you take progesterone the estrogen receptors are resensitized to their original sensitivity. In other words, when you begin to take progesterone, you regain your original sensitivity to estrogen.
So, the irregular period is due to this tug of war between estrogen, progesterone and fluctuating sensitivity to both hormones.
In general I feel more stable and balanced.
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I feel better than 2 months ago. I am taking additionally vitamine B and Sumacazon (food supplement containing maca, and aimed at strengthening the endocrine system.
Progestelle is making me being a bit sleepy indeed, I am taking it mainly before bedtime, and a bit in the morning, on the face.
In general I feel more stable and balanced. I will continue with Progestelle, and I believe the monthly period will stabilise.

Decrease in my Anxiety Level and Weight loss
Sept. 9, 2009
Dear Dr. Eckhert,
Thank you so much for the time you spent with me last Saturday providing me with the information I needed to know due to the fact I could not read the printed word in your pamphlet. What I find most interesting is that my anxiety level has dropped so much since I began taking the progesterone.
The next think that I find remarkable is that the I had been losing detail in my only eye which is a 10 degree field. Within the week I began to see some detail on a landmark that I have. I thought naw this can't be possible but it is. My dry eye appears to be dissipating.
According to my cornea specialist dry eye is suppose to be a fact of life as one gets older.
My intestines seem to be cleaning themselves out since I began this liquid and bloating is going down. I had been given cyclosporine as an experimental drug to protect two human corneas from rejecting and the side effects have been incredible besides both corneas rejected. I have worked hard on my diet to maintain my sight but the weight gain was insane. Within this week my body appears to be deflating and my hair is silkier. that is strange to me.
I have eliminated the herbs and foods that are recommended and changed our laundry detergent.. I hope and pray that this is the answer that I have been seeking since 2004 to bring my body back to where it was going.
Thanks so much for the dialogue. It was very much appreciated.
Nov. 17, 2009
Dear Dr. Eckert,
I have been taking progesterone now for two months. I have noticed a remarkable down in my anxiety level, weight loss and the ability to actually get to the bathroom in time due to less frequent incontinence.
I have also listened to your suggestion of how to handle chocolate cravings and went for half of a banana and noticed that this has done the trick I believe this correction only took place because I abandoned all of the herbs that were suggested not to use which you read to me. Before if I went for the orange or had half a banana it really didn’t make a difference I wanted the chocolate anyway.
I also noticed that there is a reduction in food intake without me forcing the issue or concentrating on not eating. When my stomach says its full it means it and doesn’t want anymore. Because I have been working on correcting and balancing my body all my life and have been giving medication most of my life i.e. steroids it has been a non stop balancing act without real results. The calm that I am now experiencing is enabling me to feel less anxious when I have to meet more challenges which appear to be never ending in my life.. but I do not have the same reactions to stress.
Since I have tried everything in my life to correct my body weight and other problems I am so appreciative especially to have the ability not to be in constant worry.
Thanks so much,
Very truly yours,
Apr. 26, 2010
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I thought the following may be of interest to you.
the scare tissue on my hand is now just a freckle and we can
actually see the hand underneath. This is incredible.
I have elimated all of the foods and herbs on the list that you
gave me...The interesting think is that I just wanted time off from
my over all diet. I DID NOT USE ANYTHING FROM the LIST though.
So last week i gave my self a break on all the legal things. The
two days of being free cost me 5 days to be able to move forward
again. The ability to move forward wthout becoming depressed or
destructive was a first in my history of dieting.
The clairity of my mind is really the big change. There is a big
shift here that I can notice. I can't say to you it is all due to the
progestrone balancing act, but i can say to you that this never
happened before. Something is going on here definitely as my
hyperthalmus is speaking loud and clear to me about observing when
I am almost full now. The last time i wrote you i was able to figure
out when I was full this time it is stating to you STOP before you
are full. My balancing act is a life long 50 year battle so all i
can do is state to you what i am observing.
My education, experience and my knowledge of health and nutrition
never hit upon this balancing act. The professionals that taught
me or I went to always would blame the patient for not moving
forward. Drugs and behavior and telling the patient that they
are not disciplined were the common practice of informing a patient
of their failing the diet they were given. Ah, but at this point of
my life.. it appears that must be more to all this.
So this is my update .. thanks for listening.
Apr. 26, 2010
thanks for the quick response.
The scar on my hand was scar tissue from i.v.'s over the years in the same place. I .. in the last month i began putting some of the progestrone drops on the scar tissue.. after i noticed it was considerably smaller with the treatment of the drops over the last few months and voila it is almost gone.
All I can do is tell you what is going on not why.
I have been on this journey or taking back my life from being ill since birth from one thing or another.
I think the elimination on the food list you suggested enabled me to have clear thinking. I can not come to any other conclusion as i HAVE BEEN TRACKING THINGS ALL MY LIFE AND FOLLOWING OTHER ALTERNATIVE WAYS WHICH DID NOT HELP ME IN THE LONG RUN.
THE SWELLING AND PAIN IN MY ARMS is almost gone since i eliminated all of the products on the food list and changed the laundry products.
I have a question for you...
Calcification in the breast does it eventually go away?
Yes you may publish what you think would help others.. as this is what is most important and that is to encourage others to not give up and continue to balance themselves.
All the Best,
April 27, 2010
Hello.. sorry to bother you but I have been thinking on how I responded to you about the scar tissue on my hand.. as it kept on going round and round in my head. and I sounded to me very stupid...after the fact
I thought of this and realized after 7 months I responded to you in this fashion BECAUSE I learned to trust you over the months that I have been taking the progesterone. All of the things you stated that would take place have. I am sleeping at night .. the scar tissue on my ovaries seems to have disappeared and i can turn in bed without screaming in pain.. anxiety level has dropped.. so why shouldn't the scar tissue on my hand disappear?
For the first time i do not have to second guess a MD or look up the side effects as i have none nor is the cure making balancing act making me feel miserable. i have tried everything and everyone...including my own education and ability.
I couldn't help myself though everyone else around me gets better from my educating them..
People will not take you seriously as a healer if you are a blimp ...it happens to me all the time.. I won't be able to do what i wish in this area unless the weight comes off.. nice to say i couldn't figure out which bathing suit to put on this morning as i have two the same but in different sizes and i can't read the tag . I accidentally put on the smaller one and it fit without being tight. oh i couldn't even pull up the bottom to the suit three weeks ago.
I realized at this point of this program .. I am learning to trust you without looking up things because I am seeing results.. it is nice to sleep though the night.
Question: While your are cringing reading this i have to ask ah does caffeine free diet coke cause calcifications on the breast? ye yes I have been drinking a can a day and stopped yesterday.. for the last 24 days... ...other than this i have been honestly sticking to the what the plan is...
Thansk for taking the time to read this ansering my questions and finding out all the estrogen and environmental chemicals that cause problems..
smiles.. and is still somewhat scared as i move forward...

Editor's Note: Estrogen Dominance (too much estrogen) from Environmental Estrogens cause a magnesium deficiency. This magnesium deficiency causes calcifications in the breast and other places. The solution is to take a good chelated Magnesium Supplement, take progesterone cream and cut out Environmental Estrogens. In many cases, the calcifications dissolve away.

Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I am writing to thank you for all of your work. Without which my daughter would not be here. I was seriously thinking about giving up on another child. By now I was nearly forty and I barely had my first one earlier in life. Miscarriage after miscarriage. Disappointment after disappointment. I did not want to quit. I didn't want it to end this way.
Then by a fluke I started to research PMS. I had felt a rage toward my daughter that scared me. Immediately I began researching. I came across a sight and low and behold early miscarriage was caused by estrogen dominance. WOW!! I was excited, sad and mad all at the same time. How did this happen? Why? All my suffering and all this time it was caused by the products I was using ignorantly. Ouch! Not to mention all of the other symptoms of which I had many.
I started the progestelle as recommended and continued three months after getting pregnant. Six months later to the joy and delight of my entire family our Sara was born!!!! A healthy nearly 10 pound baby girl.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us our happy ending. Now when I look back, the end will never be a miscarriage and its sorrow but the blessing of our precious baby girl.

Actually, I am much better now
Actually, I am much better now that I moved to this product from the progesterone cream. No more night sweats, migraines or mood swings!
My cycle is still unpredictable some months (in arrival date, duration and flow) but I know it's also in part aggravated by traveling and food intolerances.
Oct. 20, 2009
I am so happy and grateful.
I bought progestelle about two months ago for severe fibrocystic
breasts. I have drastically made changes in line with your
recommendations. I feel almost 100% better in just a few weeks.
This is my second month using the product and about mid-way through my
cycle (ovulation?) I had breakthrough bleeding.
It was light red, more brown, not heavy amount and mostly in the
morning for about three days. Now I am on day 32 of my cycle
and have not gotten my period (I assure you I am not pregnant).
Before progestelle my cycles would be close to 45 days. Last month
I (blissfully...with no PMS) started my period on the 26th day of my
I have only been using one dropperful of progestelle before bed.
Should I stop for a few days to see if my period begins? Do you think
that "breakthrough bleeding"
was my period? I usually have a very heavy amount of blood for five
days. Will I be at risk for endometriosis if I don't get my period
and "shed" that lining?
I would appreciate your opinion on this! Thanks so much for all the
information you have made available. Not a day goes by (not a minute)
that I don't feel utter
gratefulness for being pain-free. I just want to continue making
positive decisions about my body. I can't help but wonder if it is
hormonely confused right now!
My children have noticed me being pain-free. I couldn't hug them tight because my breasts would hurt so badly.
Now they run up and give me long, bear hugs... I can play jump-rope with them (that used to hurt just thinking about).
I am not on edge anymore. The progestelle has helped me be the person I really am (not jacked up on estrogen),
I am relaxed and much more patient with everyone. I have more energy. I am so happy and grateful.
But, most of all I am not fearful anymore. Being in pain is frightening and debilitating emotionally and physically.
I have spent so much money trying to find a "cure" for fibrocystic breasts. The bulk of the work is up to me.
I'm willing to do it now that I know what to do. And that little glass bottle of Progestelle is the most valuable thing in my house (besides my family!).

The pain was lowered almost to nothing, thanks for your advice.
During the last two (2) years I am suffering of pain in the low abdominal area. It started after working in the backyard using a shovel. The pain has increased gradually with higher pain after the menstrual period. Then I was diagnosticed with endometriosis. The pain can not be eliminated with the medicaments; it was recommended a laparoscopy surgery and/or treatment to advance menopause. Yesterday (20/AUG/2009) I discovered the product Progestelle in the internet and bought it (order 21233). I wonder to know if I can use the product Progestelle, how it is used, and what dose. Which book is recommended, to know more about endometriosis treatment without a performing a surgery periodically. We will appreciate any advice and/or recommendations. Thanks for your attention.
On 03/OCT/2009 I completed 21 consecutive days using the Progestelle. The pain was lowered almost to nothing, thanks for your advice . From 04/OCT/2009 to 12/OCT/2009 I did not used the Progestelle. It was supposed to have the period on 08/OCT/2009 but until now I do not have any period.
Is reliable the result of a pregnancy test found in any pharmacy even if I’m using the Progestelle?

I wound up having a very healthy baby
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
Hello! We spoke several times on the phone. I became pregnant while on progestelle ( we were trying) and took it as you described below, and wound up having a very healthy baby boy! He is now 6 weeks old. I am feeling good. It is time for me to start some sort of birth control again, my ob just prescribed the mini-pill or the progeterone only pill. Is this a good idea? I wanted to check with you first, our other option is just to use condoms. I am not on any progestelle at all right now, and I am nursing my baby.

I have NO PAIN AT ALL!
Hello Dr Eckhart.
I am writing to thank you for your help. I used Progestelle for 6 months for adenomyosis and my health is back to normal. I stopped 1 month ago and I have NO PAIN AT ALL! I am so surprised I can't believe it! Of course I continue to avoid coffee, parbens, etc. I have two questions for you:
1. Is it safe to consume SOY LECITHIN?
2. Should I have an MRI to see if adenomyosis is gone?
I looking forward to your answer. Thank you.

I'm doing really well thank you.
I'm doing really well thank you. I've cut down to one dropper full a day now as I do feel a lot better. My periods are not half as bad as they used to be and my migraines are a lot more under control. I still get lethargic but we are living in a really old damp house and I don't think it's doing me any good to be honest.
Thanks so much for asking.

Overall I feel so much better.
Hi Dr. E.,
Just a quick update..
I have now had 2 normal periods. The first period the hemorrhagic flow stopped. I still had a heavy period, but was not hemorrhaging. My clots were 1/2 of what they were the previous month. The following period was normal. No clots, moderate flow, and no cramps. So, after 5 years of hemorrhaging I have had 2 non-hemorrhagic periods. I'm ecstatic. I believe it is the combination of progestelle and vitamin A.
I am using a very small amount of progestelle - I have used the same bottle for 3 months, and it still has 1/4 left.
My energy is good. I am very pleased. I have recommended your site to another woman with heavy periods.
Migraines are the same, around 20 per month, but they are long-standing (since '92/93) and I am thinking it may be a long term project.
I have almost completely occluded nasal passages (nasal polyp on one side, and the other side healed sealed shut after a nasal polypectomy 20 years ago). My twin brother has had 3 sinus surgeries due to sinus infections and headaches.This may have something to do with my headaches. I can almost never breath through my nose. I am now considering nasal surgery in order to have a functional airway.
I continue to follow the guidelines for laundry det., soap, shampoo, etc.
Overall I feel so much better.

Your product has helped her enormously.
My 14-year-old, daughter suffers from Dysmenorrhea. Your product has helped her enormously. Before using it, she was on a low dose birth control pill, with which I did not feel comfortable with her using long term. The doctor switched her to the Yaz pill last year and it really had some bad effects on her system. She now suffers from IBS. When we took her off the Yaz and added the Progestrelle, her IBS improved. I don't know if the Yaz hurt her but the pain came on over night with her. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we really like your product.

I am a true believer that I am better because of your research (endometriosis patient)
I have been using Progestelle since the first of this year with very good results. I have also cut out xenoestrogens from the products that I use and consume. I am a true believer that I am better because of your research.
I am currently dosing two dropperfuls of Progestelle a day until my period begins. My husband and I are considering conception. How would I use the Progestelle to try to conceive? What would be the dosage, number of days etc?
I appreciate your time.

I am happy to report a huge relief of breast & ovarian pain from
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I am now into my third month on natural progesterone, avoiding xeno &
phyto estrogens as much as possible, and taking the recommended
supplements as per your suggestions in the little blue booklet .
I am happy to report a huge relief of breast & ovarian pain from
cycts. Two months ago I could not even lay on my side or stomach.
Now there is no problem. The endomitrial pain I have suffered with
for 10 years is greatly diminished, I feel clearer in my thinking, my
energy is coming back, my hair is indeed getting thicker, and I am
feeling a new joy in life and very hopeful of even more improvements
Considering that half my life was consumed with endomitrial pain
(from ovulation, until menstruation), combined with horrible PMS
(which I just thought was NORMAL until I read your literature!) I
NOW have an extra 2 weeks every month that I can actually function
like a normal person rather than being curled up in bed with pain &
exaustion written all over my face.
Please feel free to use my experience in any of your product
promotion. I am starting a grass-roots movement to share my
experiences with xeno-estrogens to educate other women, and would like
to know if you have literature you would like me to pass out when I
have my first meeting. I am sharing simply my own experience, but I
will definetly be telling them about Progestelle and your research.
Your work is amazing and important, and I want
to thank you from myself and from the many women you have helped and
will help due to your fantastic research for a new opportunity to live
without pain, keeping our ovaries and learning proactively how to take
charge of our own health.

The side benefit is I do not have insomnia at all
I received my Progestelle over the weekend and I read the booklet and other information that came with it several times. Now I understand better what I was going through. I will NEVER use birth control again! I can also tell you that I have eliminated some, but not all Xenoestrogens and do not use plastic in the microwave anymore, and I aleady see a difference.. I also went to the farmer's market and got all organic fruits and veggies. In addition, I didn't really know that progesterone causes sleepiness so now I only use the oil at night, and the side benefit is I do not have insomnia at all. I sleep like a baby and I am not as tired and sluggish during the day. All of these changes are already making a difference and I have only been using the oil for about 3 days.
Thanks again for all you do for women everywhere. I went ahead and cut and pasted my medical form into this e-mail, but it may be moot at this point now that I read the booklet. (See below).
Thanks & best regards,

I'm two months into my xenoestrogen free lifestyle and already I'm experiencing amazing results.
I'm two months into my xenoestrogen free lifestyle and already I'm experiencing amazing results. My cystic breast lumps have decreased in size, my breasts have become painless and soft, my periods are back to regular 28 day cycle with no bleeding & far less pain in-between periods, my moods have improved, my energy levels are increasing. I've decreased my long-term fear and anxiety. I feel great! I've taken the fibrovan and indole3carbinol for the last few weeks. Today I start on the progestelle and I am very excited to see how much more I will improve.
I cannot thank you enough. The information you provided in your little book is GOLD and inspired me to research more. I am now giving my three daughters hope for a healthy adulthood without the painful problems I have experienced for 12 years.
So, THANKYOU. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

I have a history of recurrent miscarriages @ 4-8 weeks
My story has been a long 7 year journey....I have been plagued with weight gain, heavy cycles, severe PMS, PCOS, migraines, acne, mood swings, breast tenderness, and infertility (8 first trimester miscarriages in 7 years) It was heart wrenching to keep feeling like I was dying, knowing there was something going on internally that no doctor could "diagnose." I took matters into my own hands and typed in all of my symptoms into a search engine and up came "estrogen dominance" and natural progesterone for the treatment. While I was researching progesterone, I came across your site and liked the fact that your product did not have all of the added herbs and chemicals of the other "natural" protgesterone creams had. I ordered your product and LOVED the buy one get one deal! I used it from ovulation to the beginning of my monthly cycle. I quickly noticed my moodiness disappearing...my acne cleared up, headaches lessened and low and behold within a few months got pregnant. I contacted Dr Eckhart to ask if Progestelle was safe to continue in pregnancy. He assured me it would protect my pregnancy and gave me the dosage recommendations for someone with my history. I continued to use Progestelle until my 6th month and am proud to say I now have a very happy and healthy 3 month old baby boy! Thank you for your support while taking Progestelle! It changed my life! I will continue to use Progestelle and eliminate the use of products on the avoidance list to assure my hormones and body stay in balance! And may even try for baby #2....
Jody L C
I sent this email over a year ago and am pleased to announce I have a healthy, happy 12 week old baby boy! I started using your oil @ 4 weeks and had a very healthy uncomplicated pregnancy! THANK YOU!!!
I do have a question..can I use this and still breastfeed? I want to keep my hormones balanced and ready to go if we try for baby #2. Are there any side effects or harm for the nursing baby?
I have a history of recurrent miscarriages @ 4-8 weeks (6-8 total). I have a history of horribly heavy cycles with heavy bleeding and clotting. I started the use of progesterone cream about 4 months ago. It wasn't your oil at the time and did not feel much of a difference, but pressed on. I found out last week I am pregnant. While I was researching progesterone 2 weeks ago, I came across your site and quickly ordered your product and started it @ 4 weeks pregnant. ( i have been on it one week) I have never made it this far (5 weeks) without spotting, so we are hopeful that this time, we may be successful!
Because of my severity of symptoms, I am opting to use the oil, 3 dropper fulls, 3 times a day. I do have extra weight on me and I was concerned about my absorption, so I wanted to assure I was getting the highest dosage possible. Is this an appropriate dosage for my situation. Also, I do not want to stop the oil until I reach 8 months to assure all is okay.
Does this sound like a good plan to you? Are there any dangers to having too much natural progesterone in early pregnancy? I am in the process of changing my soaps and detergents as we speak and am taking my list of things to avoid with me where ever I go.
Thank you for your information! I have read other testimonials and feel I too will have an amazing story to share in about 9 months!

diagnosed with Adenomyosis.
Hi .... could you please cancel my standing order for Progestelle. I find that I
no longer need it.
Thank you for a wonderful product that has saved me from a hysterectomy. I was
diagnosed with Adenomyosis a few years ago and was told by the gynecologist
that a hysterectomy was the only possible remedy. After a few months using the
Progestelle (and eliminating many sources of xenoestrogens), my symptoms were
95% gone. I used it for about a year, then quit for a while and my symptoms
came back. So, I began using it again and my symptoms went away. At this
point, I think I'm far enough along into menopause that I don't need the
Progestelle. However, if I find that I need it again, I will most certainly
turn to this product again. I have told many people about its effectiveness
and have hopefully spared a few women the drastic measure of hysterectomy.
Thanks again for offering this fine product.

I had recently had a miscarriage and was pregnant and bleeding again
when my mother had me contact Dr. Eckhart. I immediately started taking
Progestelle. The bleeding didn't stop immediately, but it did stop.
Dr. Eckhart was always available, he answered many questions and helped
me through a very frightening time. I am now the mother of a beautiful,
healthy and happy little girl.

I have been able to eliminate the need for the surgery again to remove the endometriosis which is WONDERFUL!
I am doing well, the laundry soap switch made a HUGE difference, I was very surprised. Prior to getting worse I had been using Shaklee “clean, free and clear” but had switched at some point to seventh generation. I had not made the connection until I read your information. I immediately switched back to Shaklee and within 6 months of the switch had the pain back under control. With continued use of the Progestelle and back to the Shaklee laundry soap I have been able to reduce to the “maintenance” dose of Progestelle and need only a few pain pills a month instead of the 3 or 4 a day for 2 weeks a month I had been up to. I have been able to eliminate the need for the surgery again to remove the endometriosis which is WONDERFUL! I am very very pleased with the information you provide in the booklet, and with the progestelle and have passed the information along to many friends.
I will be to autoship in about 4 months with the supply I have and the amount I am using currently unless something changes.

Hi Dr. Eckhart,
Can you please send me 6 more bottles of Progestelle [ Progesterone Cream ]?
This was the first month that I had absolutely NO migraines, before,

Thank you SO much for everything.
I'm telling everyone with symptoms about you.

I was so glad when it [the bleeding] stopped within 2 days of using the product! (Progesterone cream)
When I first starting using it, I had been bleeding for about 3 months. The bleeding stopped within two days of starting the Progestelle. As long as I take it, mood swings are less frequent, and my period is more regular, though of less duration. Sometimes I am off the Progestelle for a couple weeks before my period actually starts.
I did an experiment last month and didn't use the Progestelle at all. It was a bad month! mood swings, depression, crying. I am back on it now and feeling much better. Also, I have been battling vaginal yeast, and the symptoms seemed to be less while I was off the Progestelle. I'm not sure if there's a correlation. Any thoughts on that? I'll let you know when I'm ready for another shipment. Thanks!
Yes, you can publish my testimony. If you need any other background info for it, let me know. I am 45 years old, always had a "regular" period, and they started getting somewhat irregular in the past year,(sometimes very light, sometimes 2 in a month) While I was bleeding for those three months, it was variable, but continuous. I even had times when it was so heavy, one clot or burst of blood would soak me and I had to leave work immediately. That's why I was so glad when it stopped within 2 days of using the product!
I use extra virgin coconut oil on my face as a moisturizer, and Larenim (supposed to be the cleanest)brand make-up over the top of that. I do use some shampoo that may have some bad stuff in it, but mostly Kiss My Face, Giovanni, or other "health" brands of shampoo and lotion. I use soap that a friend of mine makes for washing, and "green" type products for cleaning. I do, however, use clorox wipes on occasion. It may be a while before I have time to send ingredients, but I will keep it in mind, and appreciate your offer to look it over. Thank you!

Editor's Note: Usually yeast infections go away with progesterone.
Usually yeast infections are due to estrogen dominance. Chronic estrogen exposure leads to yeast infection and a lessened sensitivity to estrogen (down regulation).
The reason why the yeast infection got worse is after taking progesterone Caryl's sensitivity to estrogen went back up to normal. It seemed like she was getting more estrogen even though she was not. Thus, she got a yeast infection. The solution is to cut out all xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens.
Crazy Hair Loss Has Stopped
I am fine thank you, how are you? I went off the pill about two months ago and seem to be getting hot flashes for the past month. Still no period. But otherwise feel fine with no PMS symptoms like I used to, and the crazy hair loss has stopped.

I do feel much more 'alive' and healthy
Since I have started using progesterone, my thyroid meds have had different effects on me. Am in the process of re-regulating them and, hopefully, not needing them any longer. During this time period, my endocrinologist asked that I use less progesterone. He really wanted me to use none, but I refused. I am back on my orginial dosage, but I do have 4 unused bottles that I need to use before receiving additional shipments.
Since I began using your progesterone, I do feel much more 'alive' and healthy. I have discontinued the synthetic estrogen and now use a compounded Triest. Since I had a total hysterectomy in 1996, I have had comments from my OB/GYN and endocrinologist about not needing any progesterone. I inform them that I feel better while using it, so I will continue to use it.
Thank you for providing support for me and others.
Yes, please feel free to use my testimonial, especially if it could help others realize there is a difference in the way they will feel with the progesterone.

Help for a Menstrual Migraine

things on the list in booklet. Doing much better!

It did wonders!
Your product has been a great help the few years I've been using it. When I first started using it, I had been having bad P.M.S., cramps and many cysts in my breasts. I got off parabens for the most part and started using the oil. It did wonders! My husband couldn't even tell when I was about to start. Hormone Headaches and profuse underarm sweating were a thing of the past and very light if any hot flashes in the night or breast tenderness.
My question is: I am almost 49 and the past couple of years have had a "regular cycle of 25 days then a break through period two weeks later, then 25 days and two weeks later, etc. My periods were pretty light, lasting maybe 3-4 days. The past few months, they started getting heavier/longer and in January I had a very heavy one lasting over a week. Now this month I was supposed to start on the 10th but have not had a period yet. I usually stop applying the oil the day I start and then wait 8-12 days before applying it again. When should I start/stop applying the oil if I don't have a period? I'm assuming this is part of the menopause process, but want to apply the oil at the proper time to get the most benefit. Thank you for your time,

Periods becoming heavier indicates a xenoestrogen or phytoestrogen in your environment. Get rid of it and the problem will go away.
Take Progestelle whenever you do not have a period.
May I Publish your testimony under Kim H.?
After only about one week of beginning, I am happy to say my bleeding has stopped
Thank you Dr. Eckhart for you prompt reply. As of Thursday, March 5, 2009 , after only about one week of beginning, I am happy to say my bleeding has stopped. I feel much less foggy in my thinking and reacting and when I lay on my back I have noted that the height of my uterus is lower down from my belly button. The intense pressure that I'd felt in my lower back is somewhat diminished. I am no longer having as many night sweats as well. I am absolute amazed by these products and I am continuing to change the products I use on my skin and hair. I have discontinued using red raspberry, flaxseed oil and powder, oregano, and I am weaning myself from garlic(very difficult for me). Do you suggest that I start taking the Fibrovan to help dissolve the Fibroids? Also, I am not sure when to stop the progestelle for 7 days. Since my periods have become irregular, I am not sure when I will start again and when to stop the progestelle.
March 10, 2009
I had an ultrasound yesterday (06/01/09) and my technican said that my ovaries looked fine, however I had several very small fibroids. She is the same tech that did my initial ultrasound, however she did not remember that at my first visit I was told that I had a hugh cyst on my left ovary and very large fibroids that were contributing to my bleeding and lower back pain. I feel so much better, I am continuing to use the progestelle and vit.B and Indole-3 carbinol. I also added vit. B-6 and magnesium. I truly believe that all of these things as well as, and if not more importantly, avoiding parabens, and the xeno's has all added to the reversal of my problems. As I said before, I wish that every woman knew about this and I am doing my best to spread the word. Thank you for educating me and also the information from Dr. Lee. I will keep you posted until I am completely free of the fibroids.

I did get a control over my endometriosis
I wanted to let you know that I did get a control over my endometriosis, just saw my doctor 3 weeks ago and he was very happy with the results! I took all the vitamins and I´m still using the progestelle. But I did a lot of other things too, like nutritional and all sorts of stuff. So I don´t need to use the birth control pill anymore, which totally saved my life, since I feel very bad on it.
Wanted to let you know and thanks a lot for your help!

Your progesterone cream has been a "miracle"
Your progesterone cream has been a "miracle"-no more fibrocystic breasts. My breast actually feel healthy! I am certain I have side stepped a future breast cancer diagnosis. I could not be happier! Thank you again.
ABSOLUTELY! You may publish my testimony. I could go on and on about the 'amazingness' of your product. If I had a magic wand I would have every woman that is estrogen dominate using your product. Then there would be alot more happy women and we would see some real reduction of the statistics regarding breast cancer incidence. If only I had a magic wand....
With much gratitude,

The [ Progesterone cream ] oil helped with my HOURLY hot flashes immediately.
I am doing great, thanks for asking. The oil helped with my HOURLY hot flashes immediately at the beginning. The third or fourth day they had subsided completely. After a while I found myself using less and less. Then I forgot it on a week long trip and had no hot flashes at all. I now use it when I have a flare up and it is wonderful to have. I have two bottles on hand now so I think I'll be good for a while. Thank you again.

There were now NO FIBROIDS!
I have been using your progesterone skin oil [ cream ] since July of 2007. Last summer, after approximately one year of use, I became concerned that the daily dose of a hormone might be causing my half dozen grape-sized uterine fibroids to grow. I felt I couldn't continue use without first visiting my gynecologist for an ultrasound re-check of my condition. To my surprise, the technician's phone call reported my doctor very pleased that there were now NO FIBROIDS!
Thank you for a wonderful product. I was previously unable to use progesterone creams because of problems with chemical additives, but Progestelle is so pure I have been able to use it regularly. Your formula is truly a blessing.

I had been known to cry from the pain and nearly wanted to go to the hospital if I ever tried not to take pain medication.
I recommend this product. For 15 years, I had severe cramps. I had to take 6 ibuprofen every few hours for 2 days. I had been known to cry from the pain and nearly wanted to go to the hospital if I ever tried not to take pain medication. I went to doctors who, even while sympathetic, could not tell me what was wrong. Every test came back normal, but I knew something was wrong. I had researched years ago alternatives and the only thing I ever heard suggested was to become a vegan, which I already was. I had long given up hope, except for a glimmer that one day led me to your website. I followed your protocols about xenoestogens - got rid of most plastic and changed toiletries and laundry soap. In the beginning I used the recommended dose, but as time went on my use was a bit more erratic - mainly because I like experimenting. I have found that when I use the recommended dose consistently, I have virtually no cramps whatsoever. I have also found that after using Progestrelle for nearly two years, on the months I don't use it, my cramps are no worse than the feelings of indigestion. And while I did change my diet recently to 100% raw vegan, which seems to have helped as well, I am convinced that this product performed nothing less than a miracle. I don't think I can express my gratitude, because to be honest, I wasn't sure that it would work! Every woman who has cramps should at least give this product a shot and see if it helps.
I don't know if I am good at writing testimonials, but in writing this, I realized how truly grateful I am. Sometimes I forget because there are so many "medicines" out there that don't work... and there are so many people that try to sell you things that are next to useless. I didn't think it would work, and even now I don't understand how it did work. It seems so simple, and I don't understand why no one told me about it. So sometimes I think I just imagined it all! But I know that can't be true. But the alternative seems so scary... why can't women buy this product everywhere... why don't doctors recommend it? Anyway, either I imagined it all, or you truly saved my life. I don't mean that melodramatically. There were times when the pain was so great that I thought I would be better off dead.

I am writing to say thank you.
Good afternoon. I am writing to say thank you. I am 31 years old and had suffered from very very extreme cramping for years which intensified every year. I had been checked for cysts and endometriosis which came up that I was negative on both. Apparently I looked completely normal and healthy inside. Muscle relaxers and Lortabs did not come close to helping my pain. My husband and I also tried to get pregnant for almost two years without luck. I stumbled across the nocramp.com website which led me to the womhoo site a couple of years ago. I followed all recommendations and started on Progestelle immediately. I saw results right away. I was completely cramp free for two months and then was pregnant by the third. I talk to woman all the time about this product and the affects of toxins on our bodies.
I would love to promote your product on my website. Let me know if this is a possibility. If not, I understand and still am thankful for this product as it changed my life.

The cramping was almost non-existent.
Prior to using the Progestelle and one bottle of the Fibrovan, the abdominal pain and cramping was exhausting. Never had a problem until after the birth of my son, almost ten years ago. I had an endometrial ablation in April of 2005 to help get a handle on my severe anemia as a result of heavy bleeding, along with a laproscopy and tubal ligation. I was diagnosed with mild endometriosis. In 2007 I had an ultrasound that revealed I had a 4 cm fibroid at the top of my uterus. The doctor said that was what was causing my pain plus an ovarian cyst that had burst so to continue taking ibuprofen. He said that because I was going to be menopausal within a few years (I was 48 at the time!) the fibroid would rectify itself. Nothing about hormones or the like. My naturopathic physician, who does my thermography did some blood tests and found that my progesterone was low and started my on natural progesterone tablets. Didn't do anything for me.
I experienced an amazing difference by the time my second period on the Progestelle rolled around. The cramping was almost non-existent. I followed all the recommendations as it pertained to my situation. Still had to take the occasional Exedrin but not anywhere to the extent I was prior.
Then we had a home situation where my son had to be treated for Uku's (Hawaiian for Headlice). The whole family got treated using natural oils that contained lavender, rosemary, tea tree oil and olive oil. I was concerned about how that would effect me. Well, my next period, in early September was THE worst I have ever had. I was nauseous from the sharp pains, like a knife in my abdomen. Horrid. Popped pain killers like candy. Not much relief. I was so concerned that I went to an outpatient clinic where the doctor diagnosed a bladder infection and prescribed all these medications. His diagnosis was wrong and I was out $170. I finally went to a family doctor at a new clinic (we had just changed our Healthcare provider plan) and when she poked and proded she said that the pain was way to high up to be ovarian but requested an ultrasound which is what I wanted. The ultrasound revealed a fibroid about 7 cm in diameter that was pushing my uterus to the left of my abdomen and my ovary upward causing my pain.
I saw the gynecologist and he basically said my alternatives were 1) deal with the pain until I hit menopause which probably wouldn't be for another 6 years. 2) have a partial hysterectomy because the fibroid couldn't be removed as it was and that he felt I also was experiencing adenomyosis (sp) as a result of the ablation or 3) some other treatment that he said my healthcare wouldn't cover and it was very expensive so he never expounded on what it was. He was really pushing the hysterectomy but I wasn't about to make any decisions right away about that. I reread your testimonial about your mom and believe that the oils in the lice treatment were definitely responsible for such a rapid increase in the size of the fibroid.
I have been doing the Fibrovan, Indole-Carbinol, Bioflavinoids since mid-September, along with the Progestelle, avoiding the things that contribute to the estrogen overload problem. I use magnets and soapnuts for my laundry that work amazingly. My last period, September 29 was again relatively uneventful. I took ibuprofen in doses of 600 mg but only once a day rather than the prescribed 4-6 hours for about 4 days and then for the next 6 days, dropped to 400 mg. Finally, the pain simply subsided. This is HUGE for me and I hope to go see the doctor again for a followup and another ultrasound once I'm done doing the "dissolving" phase of the Fibrovan which should be mid-December. I am due for my next period and am confident it will be even more uneventful. It seems to also have regulated a lot better. I was on a 21 day cycle for years.
Any suggestions would be welcomed but I have read and re-read the information you provide with the product and it has been extremely helpful. Thank you for going above and beyond the conventional. I have told a lot of my friends about Progestelle and pass the website along to them.

Now 2 months later I feel so much better
Hi there, I would like to place a reorder of the Progestelle and a few other items from your site. First I would like to let you know how I am feeling. I started the Progestelle in the middle of August after speaking with you about the massive amounts of blood I was losing. I lost approx. 3 pints in one week before I finally realized that the Dioscorea I was using since not being able to get the progesterone cream I had been, was making things worse. (I have since read Dr. Lee's book on hormones and found out that Dioscorea does not convert to progesterone in the body) After the first month of cutting estrogens anywhere I could and using the Progestelle, I was starting to feel a difference. Now 2 months later I feel so much better, I can actually walk to work (only 5min walk) without feeling fatigued by the time I get up the hill. I am still getting spotting between cycles but not heavy and this month I actually had a whole week in total without any spotting. When my cycle started I only had 3 heavy days instead of 7 and even then they were not as heavy as I had been experiencing. I have colour back in my face and do not look like a ghost anymore. I can now start exercising again and know that this will just help things even more.
Dr. Eckhart, I want to thank-you from the depths of my soul. Not only for the Progestelle but for all the information regarding estrogens. I would never have known if I had not found you. Thank-you for taking the time to explain things in laymen's terms and not talk over my head. I have been able to steer my younger sister in the right direction as she will soon be premenopausal. My other 5 sisters opted for hysterectomies,( or were talked into them) as they were looking forward to not having a cycle anymore.
Once I feel everything is more in control I will contact you to start disolving the fibroids, looking forward to an ultrasound after that.
God Bless You

I am telling everyone about this product.
YES OF COURSE.I am telling everyone about this product. By stomach has gone down from looking like I was 3 mths pregnent to almost flat and my libido is back, plus my hair that was dropping out is now being complimented by my hairdresser at the salon as being thick again(she even charged me extra for service).I thank God that I found out about this because I prayed for an answer when I found out about the possibility of having less children and/or immediate surgery that came up when I found out about the fibroid. It feels like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders because there is no more haemorrhaging and hair loss, and the worry about surgery is gone.
My husband and I are ecstatic and I look forward to haing kids normally and I WANT EVERY WOMAN WITH THESE PROBLEMS TO KNOW THAT THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY- PROGESTELLE. It take a change in lifestyle for some but it is worth it. I am 28yrs and I did it comfortably. When I retun for my next visit, I expect that the fibroid will be totally gone.

I want my "recovery" to encourage people!
I want my "recovery" to encourage people who take longer in responding
effectively to the benefits of progesterone. Even my husband says I am about 100% better than I was a year ago. I used to call him at work while I was home crying in pain. Now I can make it through a period and still go camping, or be at work or school, without having to be home rolling on the floor in pain and vomiting. I have been to ER/Urgent Care twice in the last 8 years for vomiting and dehydration related to my period. Doctors tell me there's nothing they can do and I should be on hormonal Birth Control. They tell me I probably have Endometriosis and the first protocol is BC. I never took the BC for fear it would feed my problems, based on the estrogen content. I have suffered month after month for years. I used to be fine with periods until I was about 18 when I started with the pain and nausea. My mother used to tell me it is probably normal because she and her sister had bad periods too. My mom's got better after pregnancy and my aunt stays on Birth Control hormones.
After using Progestelle regularly, FINALLY I have found a GREAT deal of relief and have returned to almost pain-free periods. Now I might need Aleve or Advil a few times a day for a couple days but no more debilitating pain. I actually have completely pain free days during my period as well! It took me a good 6 months to feel that I was measurably, considerably improved. Now I still do not have 100% easy periods but looking back, I am doing worlds better than I have in YEARS!!!! When I stopped the Progesterone it was a few months before I started suffering again, so I knew it was helping me and got back on it. Now even if I use it every month or every other month I still maintain a constant betterment from where I was a year or 2 ago. I would recommend anyone who suffers like I did, to PLEASE just give it a try and don't give up even if it takes 3 months or more to feel a lot better. When you are suffering like I was, it was so hard to believe anything would really help. Sometimes I still have a hard time believing that I have found something that WORKS! It is just so amazing. I thank God all the time for giving me resources, because it was after asking Him to help me find an answer, that I stumbled across Progestelle (I felt it was my last resort before trying hormonal birth control pills that I was sure were bad for me). Thanks to Dr. Eckhart for taking the time and compassion to explain why this works and give helpful recommendations.
To avoid hormonal birth control, my husband and I took advantage of the Fertility Awareness Method, based on signs of fertility and using condoms during fertile time. It has worked for us for three years and is a wonderful alternative to hormonal Birth Control. AND! After abandoning our birth control method in order to conceive, I got pregnant on our first try!!! I had no idea if I would have fertility issues but if I did, I certainly don't now.
THANK YOU for your help!! GOD BLESS!!!,

Worked far better than anything I have ever tried. [Better than other Progesterone Creams]
Let me first start by saying that I love the Progestelle!! It has worked far better than anything I have ever tried. So, thank you!!! I referred a friend and she is now buying your product.

Progestelle [ Progesterone Cream ]
eliminated my breast cysts and menstrual cramps that I was still experiencing when using progesterone creams religiously!
Progestelle is a very pure and strong product that comes with very thorough information on its use and health benefits, and they also offer and honor a great 2-for-1 price for your first time purchase, and monthly or bi-monthly automated shipping to replenish your supply without having to plan or shop. I have found it to be a much better and more effective natural progesterone product than any of the many different kinds of creams I've used over the last 4 years for peri-/pre-menopause support. It is only natural progesterone in a natural coconut oil base that is good for your skin and absorbs very quickly because it is formulated so that it is not the least bit greasy and leaves no oiliness to get on your clothes. All the "best" and much more expensive name brand progesterone creams have additives and unpleasant side effects that lead me to research other formulas and try Progestelle. What a difference! It has completely balanced out my emotions, and has eliminated my breast cysts and menstrual cramps that I was still experiencing when using progesterone creams religiously. Thank you so much for creating such a clean, effective product and information packet to help with the upheaval in hormones most women are going through! I am recommending it to all my friends.

Hot flashes are gone. I have no problem sleeping! And the cyst in my right breast is gone.
Before using Progestelle, I was having hot flashes about every 2 hours. I was irritable and unable to sleep, thus leaving me totally exhausted. Once I did get to sleep, like clockwork I woke at approximately 2:00 a.m every morning with hotflashes that I had to throw the covers off. Frequently, I just felt like I wanted to crawl out of my body. I also had a cyst in my right breast.
Now after using Progestelle for about 1.5 months, the hot flashes are gone. I have no problem sleeping and actually have a peaceful sleep, no more 2:00 a.m. hotflashes. My emotional state is more grounded. And the cyst in my right breast is gone.
Dr Eckhart, I can't thank you enough for your product. I'm also taking magnesium and a B complex as you recommended. Working on eliminating the xenoestrogens and keeping and maintaining positive relationships.
Kailua, Hawaii June 16, 2008
Thank you for making such a wonderful product!!
I just wanted to write and let you know how happy I am with Progestelle. I've tried 5 different creams and Progestelle oil. Progestelle is by far the best I've tried. It got rid of my hot flashes completely, helped me feel more calm and helped with my migraines!! Thank you for making such a wonderful product!!
Also, I glanced at the medical form on your site and noticed it even mentioned pesticides and the toothpaste one uses. Do they contain xenoestrogens too? What is it in toothpaste that should be avoided?
Thank you for your help!
Hopkinsville, Kentucky April 17, 2008
I just really need to give you a HUGE thank you!!!
Good morning! I just really need to give you a HUGE thank you!!! I just
had a transvaginal ultrasound last week ad got the results. I had a large
cyst on my remaining ovary (left one was removed with a very large cyst a
couple of years ago) and it has gotten significantly smaller AND my
endometrium lining as also gotten quite a bit smaller! It went from 16 to
6!!!!!!!!!!! That change has taken place in about 4 months.
If you recall, I was not using the correct dosage of the progestelle for
quite a while. Once you pointed that out which was about 4 months ago, my
periods came back. That was my theory anyway, that if I would get a
period, the lining would shed and become thinner. Although I was confused
as to if I was simply starting to go through menopause which is why no
period and that the thickened lining was a true sign of something more
I think I've made a believer out of my doctor! She was not at all onboard
with the natural progesterone..
Thank you again so much! I'm so glad you are there!.
Madison, Wisonsin April 12, 2008
I've been feeling better than I have in over 7 years!!!!!
I recently switched to your natural progesterone and also have been changing
all my skin products, detergents etc (as best as possible)...I can honestly
say that I've been feeling better than I have in over 7 years!!!!! My only
concern is that when I stop applying the progestrelle (on my 26th day) I
immediately feel so much worse and my period doesn't come immediately
either...I have read (Dr. John Lee and many other books relating to my
condition of endo and fibroids) and some have suggested using progesterone
every day...I would like to know what your professional opinion and
experience is on this matter.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Los Angeles, California
Editor's Note: V.C. should feel better in about 2-3 months if and only you have switched
all the stuff that goes on the skin. It takes about 2-3 for months for these chemicals to
wash out of the body. Some women use a little progesterone during cramping to stop cramping.
The first day my breast pain was minimized about 90%
I just wanted to let you know that after the first day my breast pain was minimized about 90%, I used it for another week and it is probably safe to say that it is about 97-98% gone. I don't know what is in this oil but it works. I keep thinking that there has got to be a catch. Anything that works this fast and this well has to be used forever or have some horrible side effect. Your product is probably one out of 3 of thousands advertised that actually work and is not set to take people's money and leave them hopeless. Will I have to use this product forever? What is the best method of weaning off? Please advise. Thank you.

I just got the results of the mammogram yesterday and it is normal.
I have some questions regarding the Progestelle.
I started taking the Progestelle in August because I had breast surgery last Feb. to remove some calsifications. They did a followup exam in August stating the ones had not returned but I had new ones in the right breast. I explained I didn't want another surgery because I still have burning and itching from the original surgery scar. The scar is about 6 inches across and is reddish purple and has the waffled skin look to it. The surgeon told me that they would monitor it for six months but if the pain and itching still continued, I might have to go on male hormones, which I refused to do.
This is when I did my research on the internet about polycystic ovaries and fibrocystic breast disease, of which I have both and have never been able to conceive a child. I am now 41 and time is really running out for me. I was even on Clomid for awhile and all it did was to make my ovaries blow up like Popeye's arms. My OB/GYN wants to refer me to an infertility clinic in Indianapolis but the insurance won't cover any treatment since my husband works for a catholic hospital and our insurance is through his work. It basically covers the diagnosis. Most of these clinics want the money upfront and we just don't have that kind of money for treatment. I am really thinking about changing my OB/GYN to see if they can prescribe another infertility medication that might work for me.
I just had my followup breast exam last week and during the interim, I have removed all caffeine from my diet and no longer use sunflower seeds as well as using the Progestelle oil. My OB/GYN basically told me a couple of weeks ago that this is a complete waste of money and doesn't do anything (this was before I had my mammogram).
I just got the results of the mammogram yesterday and it is normal. I see my surgeon on Tuesday for the followup. He doesn't know I started this treatment last August and I have no idea what his reaction will be to it. The only thing I know is that there were calsifications in there last August requiring extra pictures and now I am clear. The only thing I have done differently is use the Progestelle and cut the caffeine and sunflower seeds. Is this a common result for the Progestelle and does it help with infertility?
I have also lost about 45 pounds since August and am still losing weight. The doctor had prescribed some diet pills for me but I don't like the side effects (they make you mean) and are addictive so I only take them once in a while (one a week at the most). Does the Progestelle cause weight loss of this magnitude as well?
Mary Ann C.
Mar 15, 2008
Editor's note: Yes, progesterone can have dramatic effects on weight loss if xenoestrogens are cut out. Yes, progesterone may be used to promote fertility and prevent miscarriage.
What a relief to not be in near daily agony!
I would like to tell you that Progestelle is like a magic potion, and the "Brief but Important List" was an eye opener. I am doing much better now that I am following its recommendations and using the progesterone. I pass along the information about Progestelle every chance I get.
I suffered from frequent (almost daily) migraine headaches until I started using Progestelle and following the brief list. What a relief to not be in near daily agony!

No stomach aches, bloating or headaches, no breast pain and my moods are more consistent day to day
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
Just a short note to let you know that I am so great. I have removed as many xenoestrogens as possible from my environment, skin and diet, as you advised, for nearly a month now and the improvement has been amazing. I am using the Nature Clean powder detergent, no dryer sheets, Elysian Dream products for hair and skin (fragrance free and those without rosemary and lavendar oils, only ones with olive oil, and the organic, fragrance-free shea butter), and the crystal deodorant vs. regular deodorant (AMAZINGLY better), and we changed all of our household products to the Nature Clean line and no longer use any antibacterial foaming soaps or anything. Just Grandpa's baking soda soap for regular hand washing.
I have lost seven pounds this month, my last period cycle was 28 days (who knew!) and my hair has started to grow back (after four years of thinning!!). The biggest thing is that my body is, quiet, for lack of a better way to describe it! No stomach aches, bloating or headaches, no breast pain and my moods are more consistent day to day. My energy is coming back, skin is great -- I can't believe it.
I think I have finally tapped into what has been ailing me for the past six years and I couldn't be more pleased! I plan to use these products regardless... the "clean" feeling from them is just so great. My husband has been using them too, and we are thrilled!!
Thank you so much!

Oh, my weight, two months
ago was 145 pounds and now I am 130 pounds
I have to go to work but wanted to send a quick email to tell you what a
difference this has made in my life.
The first month I had to stop taking and eliminate some more products from
my life. The second month though has been going great!
I only drink water and some juices now and have purchased both olive oil
soap from Elysian Dream and the laundry detergent from
Nature Clean....love it! I am having somewhat tender breasts now (this
week) and think that it may be due to the oncoming menstrual cycle.
Anyway....the other differences I have experienced are incredible. My mood
is so much better.....so, even keel and feeling great! Also I have
lost 15 pounds in two (2) months without even really trying (this was not
something intentional). I still eat the same amount...only now I eat
better. The extra fat around my waste line is leaving and almost gone. I
am 39 years old and have struggled with monthly issues and breast pain
for quite some time. This year the breast pain was becoming extremely
severe and my doctor didn't really have any answers. Also a couple lumps
were found on my mammogram (diagnosed as cysts). I will write more later to
you about this but must leave for work now. Oh, my weight, two months
ago was 145 pounds and now I am 130 pounds (had to purchase new clothes). I
am getting my body back and my skin has cleared up and my hair feels great
(It seemed as though my hair kept thinning and now it has stopped in that I
don't seem to have as much falling out when I run my fingers through it).
Why don't more people know about this! I have begun telling everyone I
know, that will listen.......
Thank you for having your website and sharing this news,

The first improvement I notice was my hair. It doesn't fall as it used to.
Dear Dr Eckhart,
This is my third month of treatment with progestelle. After my endometriosis surgery I satrted with Progestelle. I feel much better, I followed all your recommendations and feel great, no more xenoestrogens for me.
I am very careful with my diet, mostly organic, lots of vegetables, no redmeat, a little fish and organic chicken. The first improvement I notice was my hair. It doesn't fall as it used to. Also pain during and after my period is almost gone, this is just great. I want to ask you what would be the next step. I am still taking Indole-3 carbinol, no problems so far, no hot flashes.
Progestelle as indicated for endomeriosis. I drink alkaline water. Should I change doses of progestelle or Indole? What about Natokinasse?Can I start taking omega oils? borage oil, salmon oil, or other kind of omega. What about vitamins or antioxidants? I am not taking any other supplements or vitamins. The only concern at this time is my skin, it is really dry and itchy.
I used elysandream castille soap and almond, avocado or even olive oil for my skin. Thanks a lot for all your help.
Nov. 11, 2007
I'm very grateful for progestelle
In my early forites my uterus began to swell noticably which made me start to look for information to see what the problem was. Also I was dealing with discomfort, very heavy periods with excruciating pain behind my uterus before I needed to go to the loo. The progestelle website was incredibly informative and the advice of Dr Eckhart was crucial when I was being very cautious about the dosage. He suggested that I increase the dose to 2 pipettes per day from day 6 to 26. Now my endometriosis has resolved, 2 and a half years later, and my period is a swift 4-5 days and very little PMS. When the bleeding started to go back to normal I realised that I had been experiencing abnormal bleeding before (my period, then a gap of a day and then different bleeding from the endometriosis). I take a greens supplement daily along with vitamin C etc, and serrapeptase occasionally, as I find it a little strong. My overall health feels good and I'm very grateful for progestelle and the information that I've learned.
Very best wishes

Will continue to use it.
I am in my 50's and when a tea bag size cyst in my breast ( diagnosed
to have a fibrocystic condition) was found I began Progestelle. I
removed caffeine from my diet and used Progestelle faithfully. In four
months the cyst has decreased in size so that I can barely feel it. My
hot flashes have diminished also. Will continue to use it.
Oct 15, 2007
I'm doing really great.
I'm doing really great. Have made some major changes in the food I eat (Traditional Nutrition) and have been very faithful at applying the progesterone and I feel better now than I did when I was younger (I'm 55 now). One thing I started doing for about 6 months now is I never go off the progesterone. I take it continually. Every time I went off for a week, within a day or so I started getting headaches again. So I just stay on and it's worked out great. Thanks for all you do for women. Very thankful for you.
July 16, 2007
I cannot tell you how much difference this has made in my life.
Just a quick note to tell you that I am absolutely amazed by the difference Fibrovan and Indole 3 carbinol has made in just two weeks! It is hard to believe that I could feel so different already.
I have been trying supplements of every kind and nothing has had such a dramatic effect. My abdomen used to be so sensitive that when my two-year-old granddaughter leaned on it I would wince in pain. I had even given up trying to 'pull it in' because it was just too sore and sensitive.
Now the soreness is nearly gone and my stomach is already pooching out considerably less. I am also finding that the constant, deadly fatigue is going away. I am still tired at times (I lead a rather busy, stressful life) but it is a more normal end-of-day exhaustion. I wake up feeling so much better than I used to.
I have two weeks to go before I am even out of Phase I. I cannot tell you how much difference this has made in my life.
I suppose I should wait for the 12 weeks to end before I go back on natural progesterone? And should I increase the Indole? I am taking 400mg a day now. I feel a little irritable when I take much more than that, but according to my weight, I should be taking more.
Thank you so much for your time and all the good you are doing. I will keep you posted on my progress.

Gone are those days of feeling bloated and suffering the yo-yo weight gain/loss of around 5 lbs. due to fluid retention.
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I think Progestelle is an absolutely fantastic product. I’m 37 years and I have been living with monthly bloating and moodiness for the past 17 years. Using Progestelle, as it’s recommended every month, has improved my quality of life two-fold. I suffer from many grapes on the ovaries, a small yucky womb and from grapes in the breast. The cyclic changes my body went through for so many years are virtually non-existent today. Thank you Dr. Eckhart for such a marvelous product!
Progestelle has even ameliorated the “manic” and “chip-on-my-shoulder” episodes that would take hold of me about one week before my period. Gone are those days of feeling bloated and suffering the yo-yo weight gain/loss of around 5 lbs. due to fluid retention. I could go on and on about the benefits of Progestelle.
I do recommend this product to any women suffering from mood swings and bloating.

I ordered your product and within
5 days I noticed my hair growing back!
I wanted to write about your product and it's amazing results in my life! I
had suffered for many years and didn't know why or how the reasons! I am 39
and have 3 children. I suffered monthly moodiness and bloating after my children were born but after my 3rd child things began to turn ugly. I went to my doctor and she
prescribed lexapro and ativan, even though I was not depressed, I thought at
this point anything has got to help! It didn't! It got worse and I took
myself off the meds. I continued to have mood swings, sleepless nights,
fatigue and weight gain and nothing seemed to be working. With all this
happening I noticed I began losing my hair on top of my head, which for a
woman is total disaster! I quickly began researching on the Internet of my
symptoms and found I may be estrogen dominate! Maybe this was my problem
the whole time! I went to my doctor about what I found on your website and
was quickly discouraged from purchasing anything from the Internet and was
told "what I really needed was antidepressants"!! I couldn't believe it! I
felt in my heart of hearts this was the answer, told my doctor I was going
to pursue progesterone and not her meds. I ordered your product and within
5 days I noticed my hair growing back! I noticed my mood swings were gone
and I was happier, sweeter and kinder to everyone around me! I felt like a
completely new person!
I cannot thank you enough! You have a customer for life! I 've been taking
it regularly (expect during my period) at night, and I can sleep now and get
the rest I have been needing! THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU! I took Dr.
Eckard's advice and started using natural makeup and now my face is more
clearer and it has been in 4 years! Again, thank you for your product and

I tried Progestelle and within one month I was
I just wanted to tell you that Progestelle worked wonders for me. I was
diagnosed with Endo********* in the summer of 2005. I bled irregularly and
sometimes for weeks straight. I tried Progestelle and within one month I was
cured. I had more regularity of bleeding and the abdominal pains left
completely. It's a wonderful product and helped me to change how my family lives
as well. We have cut back on paraben containing products and overall my family
is very pleased with the results. Thank you!,

I'm doing better.
I'm doing better. I started the Progestelle in December after being
diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease (like around 30 small cysts
were found in addition to one really huge one which tipped me off). I
strictly followed your booklet's guidelines and threw out all sources
of chemicals - makeup, laundry detergent, toothpaste, shampoo, etc. -
changed my diet entirely to organic and raw foods, eliminated coffee
(boo hoo) and sugars and other high-glycemic foods, switched entirely
to grass-fed beef and other non-toxic meats, and stopped pumping my
body full of soy and flax and disruptive oils (switching completely to
virgin expeller-pressed coconut
oil) etc., and the large lump is no longer palpable, although when I
press where it was, there is pain sometimes (like now, at 11 days after my
period). Before changing my lifestyle, in the two weeks before my period,
my breasts would start to swell and become huge until menstruation, and
now there is only pain in my right underarm which radiates into the
right breast (the one that had the huge lump) a few days before
