Natural progesterone cream helps many women through the symptoms of
hormonal imbalance with many added benefits. Natural progesterone has
the same molecular structure as the progesterone produced by the body.
It is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. It can help
your body keep estrogen and progesterone levels in balance, resulting
in a maintained sense of equilibrium.*
A decrease in progesterone has also been linked to a woman’s loss of
interest in sex, dry and wrinkly skin, water retention and depression.
Natural vs. Synthetic ‘Natural’ progesterone refers to the molecule that is
identical in chemical structure to the progesterone is produced by the
female body. Many also refer to this as ‘bio-identical’ progesterone.
Currently, there are two sources of ‘natural’ or bio-identical
progesterone: Mexican wild yam and soy.*
When looking for a product that contains ‘natural’ or ‘bio-identical’ it
MUST say USP Progesterone on the label of that product. Synthetic
progesterone is known as ‘progestins’ are made chemically in a laboratory
and the molecules are structurally different than the progesterone
molecules produced by the body. The effects of progestins versus natural
progesterone have very different effects on the body. Progestins are found
in oral contraceptive pills and are used in conventional hormone
replacement therapy. Although the differences in the chemical structure of
natural progesterone and synthetic progestins are slight, their effects in
the body differ considerably. These two forms should NOT be considered

Using Natural Progesterone Cream Wisely
by Dr. Loretta Lanphier, ND, CN, HHP
Since the release of recent research studies warning about potential risks
of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), the medical community has been in
turmoil and somewhat divided as to what should be recommended to women who
are experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Meanwhile, millions of
women are confused about what to do to relieve their symptoms and at the
same time not cause other health problems down the road.
Natural progesterone cream, when used correctly, seems to help many women
through the symptoms of hormonal imbalance with many added benefits.
Natural progesterone has the same molecular structure as the progesterone
produced by the body. It is absorbed through the skin and into the
bloodstream. It can help your body keep estrogen and progesterone levels in
balance, resulting in a maintained sense of equilibrium.
As beneficial as natural progesterone cream is, we must be aware that we
are dealing with a very delicate system - the endocrine system. "The
problem relates to the fact that progesterone is highly fat-soluble and
once applied to the skin will store itself in a woman's fat tissue. When
one first uses the cream, there is no problem here as the fat stores are
very low. But as time goes on, the cream accumulates and contributes to
disruptions in the adrenal hormones such as DHEA, cortisol, and
testosterone. I have learned that although progesterone cream is an
enormously useful tool, it needs to be used very cautiously."
It is advised that women test their progesterone levels yearly. Although
progesterone overdose does not cause great harm (initially sleepiness is a
clue), we need to remember that the solution is balancing of all hormones.
Anytime there is an over-balance of a hormone, even progesterone, the
system will suffer and symptoms will appear.
Along with progesterone, balancing the adrenals is very important, but
something that is often overlooked in hormonal balancing. There are many
useful herbs that can help accomplish this along with the following: proper
diet, stress management, and sufficient sleep.
A totally balanced diet is key. I am convinced that about 85% of all
hormonal symptoms can be relieved with a healthy, balanced diet. Along with
a healthy diet, drinking large amounts of clean, pure water is also
Hidden stress can also be an underlying reason why some women do not
experience relief of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Stress is often a
"silent symptom" in that we have often learned to consider it a normal part
of life. Some suggestions in dealing with stress include meditation,
prayer, exercise (especially walking), deep breathing and learning how to
remove yourself from difficult situations involving negative stress. To
alleviate stress, these must be practiced very daily.
Studies indicate that over 75% of the population is sleep-deprived. The
importance of being in bed before 10:00 p.m. so that the body's biorhythms
are not disturbed has been taught by natural medicine doctors for many
years. The body does most of its repair and healing between the hours of
10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. If you are awake during these hours, your body
definitely pays a price. There is no such thing as "catching up on your
sleep". Once it is lost, it cannot be regained. Weekend "sleep warriors"
are actually doing more harm to their Circadian rhythms than they may
Like most things in life, we must always proceed with caution. There is no
magic bullet when it comes to getting the body balanced and healthy.
Natural progesterone is one of the most natural and safe ways to assist
women with the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, but we must remember that
our goal is "balance" in every area.
The following table shows the benefits of natural progesterone compared to
estrogen. As you can see, progesterone has many effects on the body, and we
would do well to use it wisely.
Stimulates breasts cysts; increases body fat storage; increases salt and
fluid retention; can cause depression and headaches; interferes with
thyroid hormone; increases blood clotting and risk of stroke; decreases
libido (sex drive); impairs blood sugar control; can result in less
retention of zinc and copper; reduced oxygen levels in all cells; increased
risk of endometrial cancer; increased risk of breast cancer. A benefit of
estrogen is that it helps provide a slight decrease in bone loss.
Protects against breast cysts; helps use fat for energy and keep it off
hips; natural diuretic (water pill); natural anti-depressant; facilitates
thyroid hormone action; normalizes blood clotting; increases libido;
normalizes blood sugar levels; normalizes zinc and copper levels; restores
proper cell oxygen levels; helps prevent endometrial cancer; helps prevent
breast cancer; increases bone building.*
Before using any new treatment or medication, whether prescription or
over-the-counter, you should first consult with your doctor.
