WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR MENOPAUSAL SYMPTOMS?
“The common thread running through all these conditions is estrogen dominance in relationship to a relative insufficiency of progesterone. At this point, the last thing a woman needs is more estrogen!
The vast majority of menopausal problems can be avoided by good nutrition, avoidance of toxins, regular exercise, and the proper supplementation, when indicated for hormone balance, of real, honest-to-God, natural progesterone. A very small percentage of women continue to have hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Once again, I have found that a few months or at most a year or two on natural estrone or estriol solves that problem. Estriolis the predominant estrogen made by the placenta when the ovaries are resting during pregnancy.”
The above quotes are from a book by Dr. John Lee called, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause. It is worth getting a copy of it, if you don’t already have it. He writes another book called What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Peri Menopause as well.
Dr. Lee recommends a natural progesterone cream have at least 400-500 mg/oz.
Cycle Balance Cream and Happy PMS Cream both have the suggested amount. Cycle Balance Cream is cold-pressed for easy, efficient assimilation into your skin.
