Estrogen Dominant – Consider Bio-Identical Natural Progesterone
I WAS TOO! It was the summer of 1998 when I made one of the most important decisions of my life. I have always enjoyed the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, filled with hiking, swimming, picnics and outdoor fun, however, this particular summer I was in no mood for any of it! I was experiencing low energy, high blood pressure, pelvic pain, heavy bleeding and constant pressure on my bladder. A visit to my Gynecologist revealed Fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and an enlarged uterus. My doctor’s recommendation was a total hysterectomy. I was not convinced that this was absolutely necessary and so MY search for an alternative began. (Click here to read my whole story!)
I continued reading and studying all I could find on the subject of women’s health. Coverage in the news media concerning Hormone Replacement Therapy left me confused and scared . It forced me to seek an alternative.
I read the book by Dr. John R. Lee, titled “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause”. I learned that I was experiencing ESTROGEN DOMINANCE and that if I simply got my hormones back IN BALANCE, most, if not all of my symptoms would be gone.
I decided to change my diet and lifestyle and also began using a bio-identical natural progesterone cream as Dr. Lee recommended. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first. How could something so simple and inexpensive work? But, much to my surprise IT DID WORK!
Don’t think you have to just suffer and endure! Education is your best friend.
I hope the information on this site will give you hope and answers!
Blessings to you on your journey to better health!
Hormones play a major role in how well your body functions and how you feel from day to day.
If your hormones are in balance, you likely sleep well and have lots of energy, a strong sex drive, and well-functioning immune and digestive systems.
Hormones are proteins or steroids that are secreted directly into your bloodstream. They are responsible for the body’s metabolism of minerals, regulation of fluids, reproduction, sexual function, and responses to stress.
The endocrine system, which includes glands such as the pituitary, hypothalamus, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, adrenal cortex and medulla, and ovaries, produce hormones in women.
Jerilyn C. Pryor, M.D., an endocrinology professor at the University of British Columbia, found through testing that 50% of the women in North America are severely deficient in progesterone by age 35 and that, during the menopausal years, progesterone levels decrease to almost zero while estrogen levels only decrease by 40 to 60 percent.
John R. Lee, M.D., successfully treated female patients with natural progesterone cream for over 15 years. Dr. Lee defined the signs of progesterone deficiency for woman to include swollen breasts, depression, low thyroid, fibrocystic breasts, water retention, weight gain, and loss of libido.
Dr. Lee defines this syndrome as “estrogen dominance”. When this hormonal imbalance occurs, the estrogen becomes toxic to the body. Treatment with natural progesterone restores the balance between these two main female hormones, eliminating the need for synthetic hormone therapy and the undesirable side effects.
Strictly speaking, it’s possible that we are all — men, women and children — suffering a little from estrogen dominance, because there is so much of it in our environment. You would have to virtually live in a bubble to escape the excess estrogens we’re exposed to through pesticides, plastics, industrial waste products, car exhaust, meat, soaps and much of the carpeting, furniture and paneling that we live with indoors every day.
You may have on-and-off sinus problems, headaches, dry eyes, asthma or cold hands and feet for example, and not know it could be attributed to your exposure to xenohormones. Over time the exposure will cause more chronic problems such as arthritis and premenopause symptoms, and may be a direct or indirect cause of cancer.
To read more about estrogen dominance and its causes, read Dr. Lee’s books, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause , or What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause.
