PROGESTERONE Therapy 1-2-3  Overview

 -  Increase body's PROGESTERONE relative to estrogen levels

Progesterone therapy corrects an imbalance of estrogen over progesterone in women or TESTOSTERONE in men - known as estrogen dominance, which can wreak havoc with many of the body's systems and cause serious health problems.

Why do it / Who needs it?

Estrogen Dominance

(1) Use available tactics to reduce bodys excessive estrogen levels

The first approach to an estrogen dominance over PROGESTERONE (in women) or TESTOSTERONE (in men) is to reduce estrogen levels in the body:

Reduce estrogen levels

(2) Use natural methods to boost body's PROGESTERONE levels

Help adrenal glands increase their PROGESTERONE production

The innermost layer of the adrenal glands produces small amounts of the sex hormones (Androgens, estrogens and PROGESTERONE )

Too high  vitamin E (>600IU) intake reduces LDL-Cholesterol - a precursor for producing PROGESTERONE

✔ High intake of animal fats and elevated estrogen levels decrease PROGESTERONE synthesis

Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 promote PROGESTERONE synthesis - according to Dr. Ray Peat

Raymond F. Peat, Estrogen: Simply Dangerous, Ray Peat's newsletter, July 1995

PROGESTERONE-boosting Foods – include: avocado, raw nuts and seeds, olives, salmon and tuna;

Hormone balancing herbs – Dong Quai, Wild yams, Macafem, Licorice, Vitex

Try and reduce stress

Stress uses up PROGESTERONE – when under stress, most of the PROGESTERONE produced by the body is converted into the corticosteroid hormones to deal with emotional stress or fight or flight situations. This creates an estrogen dominance situation leading to insomnia and anxiety, which further taxes the adrenals, and a vicious cycle continues as PROGESTERONE is used to make stress hormones. Weakened adrenal glands will never allow the hormones to find proper equilibrium

(3) Supplement with bio-identical PROGESTERONE

But only AFTER using above tactics to reduce estrogen and naturally increase Progesterone:

PROGESTERONE supplementation may be beneficial when you are living today's 'Typical' lifestyle - as it helps to counter-balance an excess estrogen presence. Again, however, decreasing the body's estrogen levels should always be the first approach.

How to supplement PROGESTERONE for Estrogen Dominance 

With estrogen dominance: Also boost thyroid function using iodine supplementation

Estrogen reduces thyroid function by increasing thyroid binding globulin (TBG), which binds thyroid hormone making it inactive - providing an explanation for why hypothyroid symptoms are similar to estrogen dominance symptoms
