Changed my life in a Week...,
This review is from: What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM): Premenopause: Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty (Paperback)After using natural progesterone for 1 week, I already felt a tremendous difference in my symptoms...less moody, less pain, reduced bloating, depression gone. I started feeling like I have my life back again. I have a severe case of endometriosis. My blood tests show very high estrogen levels and low progesterone. Natural Progesterone may not be for everyone and it is only one part of my holistic treatment but a very valuable one!
Dr. Lee understands hormones, how they are made and what they convert into. His work is very well researched. His approach is was one of the first that really made sense to me. Did you know that there are many factors today depleting Progesterone in our bodies? One big modern day example that hit me was that progesterone converts into other hormones when we are under stress. This depletes progesterone, so it can not oppose estrogen. Estrogen can then skyrocket leading to estrogen dominance and a proliferation of all kinds of problems woman are facing today such as endometriosis and fibroids. I might add if you use too much, you will get sleepy. That is an indication to cut back and find a level that works for you.
This book is for you if you want a more natural, holistic approach this affords. Dr. Lee also addresses women with estrogen deficiencies. Most traditional doctors will not embrace this approach and will negate it even if it is working for you. I would recommend hormonal testing before using his approach and working with a Holistic Doctor or one in Integrative Medicine.
