Most of us understand the importance of finding ways to invest quality time on our careers, with our loved ones and on ourselves. Achieving such a balance can be challenging to say the least, even when we know that we need to take care of ourselves first so that we can take better care of others. Finding hormonal balance can be just as tricky.
It gets even trickier when our health is out of alignment. For women in their mid-thirties, their progesterone levels begin dropping more quickly than their estrogen levels, creating a situation called estrogen dominance. Over time, this imbalance only gets worse.
As a physician, I have seen how estrogen dominance can cause women to suffer from premenstrual headaches, often migraine in nature, fluid retention, fibrocystic breast disease, uterine fibroids, menorrhagia (heavy, painful menstrual periods), endometriosis and functional hypothyroidism. Additionally, the incidence of breast cancer increases during the time of life when women become estrogen dominant.
Pharmaceutical drugs and surgery only address the symptoms, not the root problem. It is much easier, more effective and healthier to replenish your body with the bioidentical (or natural) progesterone it needs.
Some of the many benefits of supplementing with natural progesterone are:
- Reverses osteoporosis by promoting osteoblastic activity in the bones
- Promotes dieresis (relieving fluid retention)
- Relieves headaches associated with menstrual cycle
- Enhances mood
- Alleviates breast tenderness
- Alleviates fibrocystic breast disease
- Regulates menstrual cycle
- Relieves endometriosis
- Assists with sleep and sleep patterns
- Increases libido (or sex drive)
- Protects against breast cancer and endometrial cancer
