Frequently Asked Questions
Highlights from the research of John R. Lee, M.D.
How does natural progesterone help?
During peri-menopause, many women do not ovulate regularly. After menopause, women do not ovulate at all. Without ovulation, the ovaries to do not produce progesterone. Progesterone levels get lower, night sweats, insomnia, changes in bleeding patterns, fatigue, depression and more. Adding progesterone may help restore the body’s balance and alleviate symptoms.
How soon can I see results?
Depending upon your individual body, your experience may not be the same as the next person’s. Some notice immediate results, while for others it takes longer for the progesterone to work with their symptoms. It may take up to 3 months to notice maximum benefits. Don’t give up! Since it is a natural substance, it may take longer for the body to respond than a power synthetic.
Is Progestin the same thing as progesterone?
No. Progesterone refers to the hormone produced in the body or from a plant source, but chemically identical to human progesterone. In contrast, Progestin is a synthetic progesterone that differs in structure to the body’s own progesterone. Natural progesterone is bio-identical.
Can natural progesterone help with my hot flashes?
A study found that 83% of woman had a decrease in frequency and/or severity of their hot flashes while using natural progesterone. This was printed in Dr. Christiane Northrup’s book, The Wisdom of Menopause. Studies have also indicated that progesterone can eliminate up to 75% of all hot flashes in many woman.
How will I know if I’m using too much natural progesterone?
If you are using too much, you may feel drowsy. As progesterone causes a calming effect, in excessive amounts it may cause drowsiness. Some women notice abdominal bloating. Simply cut back on your dosage. Natural progesterone usually increases energy; you should feel energetic, not lethargic.
What is Phyto-Estrogen?
“Phyto” means plant. A good source of Phyto-Estrogen is Red Clover. Red Clover may help elevate and balance moods, improve sleeping patterns, reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, improve libido, support cardiovascular health and promote maintenance of bone mass. Red Clover contains four main isoflavones: Genistein, Diadzein, Biochanin and Formononetin. Isoflavones cause weak estrogenic activity and thus seem to help menopausal symptoms.
We have Isoflavones in our Ultra-Cal 1000 and Hormone Balance formulas.
Why do I have so much insomnia?
Insomnia in women over 40 is usually associated with the hormonal changes of per-menopause and menopause. Often there is too much estrogen relative to progesterone in the body. Remember estrogen is a central nervous system stimulant and progesterone has a calming effect on the brain. Some women experience excellent results when they rub ¼ tsp. on the back of their necks for their evening dose.
Can I use natural progesterone if I have Osteoporosis?
Dr. John Lee who studied the effect of progesterone on osteoporosis concluded that progesterone may help new bone by stimulating osteoblastic activity.
I have had a hysterectomy, but still have my ovaries. Should I still use natural progesterone?
According to Dr. Lee, this is a good choice. Following hysterectomy, the blood supply to the ovaries is significantly reduced and therefore so is their ability to produce progesterone. Within 2 years of the hysterectomy, production usually falls to postmenopausal levels.
Note: Candida overgrowth causes estrogen dominance by using the body’s progesterone as food. It devours progesterone, converting it into prednisone as its waste product. When there is candida overgrowth, it consumes the progesterone, leaving excess estrogen to take up the receptors. Use Pro-Biotics Plus and Oxy-Boost if you have signs of Candida.
