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 essential.
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 realize.
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
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.*
