Overview

Progesterone is very well absorbed through the skin when it is in a properly formulated cream, such as Serenity Bio-Identical Progesterone Cream or élan organics, and unlike orally administered progesterone it is not intercepted by the liver.

Meticulously avoid all environmental estrogens so that progesterone can optimally benefit your health.

More Detail

Serenity and élan organics should be initially applied to the fatty tissue areas of the body where it is stored for use as needed:

  • face
  • neck
  • breasts
  • buttocks
  • thighs

Always apply your cream to different areas of “freshly bathed” skin.

Most women feel a difference within a few minutes of initial application, however, those who are exceptionally deficient in progesterone and struggling with too much estrogen, may require 3 months to achieve an optimum balance.

A healthy woman should naturally produce 22-25 mg of progesterone per day during the progesterone phase of her monthly cycle (days 14-28). 1/8th teaspoon of Serenity or élan organics contains 15 mg of bio identical progesterone, so, one application in the morning and one in the evening will constitute approximately 30 mg per day.  Allowing for stress and environmental toxins, you can expect to achieve not less than 22-25 mg per day, the amount that should be produced naturally.

For severe symptoms a quarter teaspoon twice per day may be applied temporarily, perhaps 30 days or so. The amount of cream you use will be ultimately determined by how you are feeling and how you are responding.   If more cream does not achieve the desired results, then you must meticulously avoid all environmental estrogens.  Be sure to review the overview page too.

Each jar or tube contains more than 90 eighth-teaspoon applications.

If you are still having periods

1/8th teaspoon mornings and at bed time days 14-28.  Count the first day of your bleed as day one of the cycle.  If symptoms are severe you may initially use a quarter teaspoon mornings and evenings. If your cycle is not a normal 28 day cycle, then determine the day of ovulation and begin your cream that evening or the next morning.

Always apply to freshly bathed skin.

Menopause (age 50+)

1/8th teaspoon twice a day, mornings and bedtime for 25-26 consecutive days. Discontinue for 5-6 days. If symptoms are severe you may increase to a quarter teaspoon twice a day, but monitor progress and decrease as required. Using Serenity will not restart your menstrual cycle, as menopause is marked by the release of your last egg.

Always apply to freshly bathed skin.

Persistent Hot Flashes

Use Serenity or élan organics according to your menstrual status.  Avoid environmental estrogens.  If hot flashes persist, include whole psyllium seed husks in the evening according directions on product page.

Bone Health

The use of élan organics or Serenity has been shown to stimulate osteoblast cells which results in new bone tissue growth.  In the U.K. and in the U.S., bone loss begins, on average, at age 37, however, osteoporosis may not be diagnosed until menopause.  Use an 1/8th teaspoon mornings at bedtime for 25-26 days of the month.   Discontinue for 5 or 6 days (Important).

Surgically Induced Menopause

This is not age dependent. 1/8th teaspoon twice a day, mornings and bedtime for 25-26 consecutive days. Discontinue for 5-6 days. If symptoms are severe you may increase  to a quarter teaspoon twice a day, but monitor progress and decrease as required.

Apply to freshly bathed skin.

Fertility

Progesterone is the “pro-gestational hormone” and necessary for conception and full-term pregnancy. A drop in progesterone levels or a blockage of progesterone receptors during the first 11 or 12 weeks will normally result in miscarriage.

1/8th teaspoon mornings and at bed time days 14-28. Count the first day of bleed as day one of the cycle. If symptoms are severe you may initially use a quarter teaspoon mornings and evenings. If your cycle is not a normal 28 day cycle, then determine the day of ovulation and begin your cream that evening or the next morning.

If you become pregnant, please refer to directions for pregnancy.

Avoid environmental oestrogens.

Pregnancy

When you have achieved pregnancy, continue to use your cream at the initial rate of 1/8th tsp twice daily, uniformly increasing to 1/2 tsp twice at the end of week 19.  When your body’s progesterone production is taken over by the placenta, discontinue the use of your cream until after birth.  This will treat the underlying cause of “post partum depression”.

*note: if you discontinue your cream at the end of week 19 and the placenta has not taken over progesterone production, resume cream.  You will clearly know if the placenta is not producing significant quantities of progesterone.

Libido

Testosterone is the source of libido in women.  Progesterone is the precursor for testosterone.  Apply according to your menstrual status.

Add kindness, candlelight, soft music and a chilled bottle of Pinot Noir for enhanced effect.

Final Notes

At the onset of using natural progesterone cream some women may initially experience an increase in “estrogen dominance” symptoms. This is due to the natural progesterone “waking up” estrogen receptor sites, not a reaction to progesterone.

If experienced, simply reduce the amount of cream to an amount that does not trigger symptoms and gradually return to a normal dose.  This condition is only temporary. As your body adjusts the re-introduction of this “most important” hormone, you will achieve an optimal balance and the symptoms caused by oestrogen dominance will ameliorate.

There are no reported short or long term side effects to using Serenity Bio Identical Progesterone Cream nor élan organics Bio Identical progesterone cream. – Too much estrogen can cause irregular cycles and retention of old blood.  Because natural progesterone has a normalizing effect on the menstrual cycle, it can initially promote the shedding of old blood. This shedding is very desirable as stored blood can increase the risk of endometriosis & endometrial cancer.
