"WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT MENOPAUSE"
by DR. JOHN LEE
This book contains startling and life-saving news. I urge all women to get a copy and read it to educate themselves on how their bodies work, and what they can do naturally to alleviate many symptoms that actually come from progesterone deficiency. For those who want to avoid the dangers and the unnecessary side-effects of synthetic hormone replacement therapy, and for those who suffer from PMS, pre-menopause, osteoporosis, menopause, irregular menses, fibrocystic breasts, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, infertility, etc, etc. -- natural progesterone is a strategic part of the treatment.
"Estrogen dominance" describes a condition where a woman can be deficient, have normal, or excessive estrogen but with little or no progesterone to balance its effects in the body. An excess or deficiency of hormones can make a world of difference in a woman's outlook on life and her overall health and well-being. There are natural ways to achieve balance including diet, exercise, reducing stress, supplements/herbs, and natural progesterone cream.
Environmental chemicals that have estrogenic affects are disrupting the reproductive and hormonal balance of all living creatures, including humans. Actually men, women, and children are all being affected by estrogen dominance. Petrochemically derived "xenohormones" are nonbiodegradable and will continue to accumulate in the body.
Common sources of "xenohormones": Petrochemically derived pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, industrial waste such as PCBs and dioxins, solvents and adhesives, car exhaust, nearly all plastics, emulsifiers in soaps and cosmetics, meat from livestock fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them up; and in synthetic estrogens and progestins found in the urine of millions of women who take birth control pills and HRT, which is flushed down the toilet and then works its way into the food chain.
Now that we are aware of the dangers of environmental chemicals that mimic estrogen, we can be grateful that natural progesterone (cream) has been discovered to help safely restore healthy hormonal balance.
