The Need for Natural Progesterone
June 25, 2009 by Bob Livingston
The great need for natural progesterone for women has become acute in the last 50 years because of the widespread use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) prescribed by physicians, causing estrogen dominance. HRT is synthetic and it leads to cancer and death. It is still widely prescribed in spite of the fact that synthetic estrogens cause blood clots, strokes, epilepsy and heart attacks, and is a source of breast and uterine cancer.
Natural progesterone levels begin to decrease around age 35 and the decrease is associated with many health problems. These mostly affect women, and include: uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breast, breast and uterine cancer, PMS, osteoporosis, depression, water retention, decreased libido, irregular and/or excessive menstrual bleeding, cravings for sweets and excess deposition of fat, especially around the hips and thighs. Estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency promotes these conditions.
The remedy for progesterone deficiency is natural progesterone cream. The many great benefits of natural progesterone include anti-aging, increases body supply of oxygen, improves circulation, improves brain structure and function, helps regulate edema, prevents PMS, promotes pregnancy, increases libido, assistance in the metabolism of fat for energy, increases oxygen to the cells and stimulates bone growth. Progesterone normalizes the immune system and is very effective in autoimmune problems.
Progesterone is a major regulator of estrogen and is the most versatile hormone in the human body. It is very important for both women and men as it causes neither feminization nor masculinization. Use only natural progesterone cream, about one-quarter teaspoon per day for men and women.
