How would you know if you are suffering from a deficiency of progesterone & too much estrogen?
A healthy woman should naturally produce about 25 mg of progesterone per day during the progesterone phase of her monthly cycle (days 14-28). Allowing for stress and environmental toxins, supplementing women should apply not less than 25-30 mg per day, the amount that should be produced naturally.
PMS encompasses more than 150 different symptoms, although, thankfully, no Woman experiences them all.
The observable symptoms generally include all or some combination of:
- Mood Swings
- Food Cravings
- Weight Gain
- Loss of Libido
- Acute Headaches
- Breast Swelling & Tenderness
Address the causes of PMS by managing stress and replacing the chemicals that interfere with hormone balance with products that are plant-sourced, ergo, safe & therapeutic.
While identifying & avoiding the myriad of harmful chemicals in the environment, the other half of what is needed is a properly formulated organic progesterone cream, one free of petro-chemicals, free of Chinese progesterone and free of Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMO-free) one that, since 1995, has proven to be the safest and most effect choice for the Informed Woman.
Always apply to freshly bathed skin. 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. Meticulously avoid all environmental estrogens so that progesterone can optimally support your health.
If hot flashes persist, include whole psyllium seed husks in the evening according directions on product page.
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.
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.
*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.
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.
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 may initially promote the shedding of old blood. This shedding is very desirable as stored blood can increase the risk of endometriosis & endometrial cancer.
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 the Master hormone, you will achieve an optimal balance and the symptoms caused by oestrogen dominance will ameliorate.
