PROGESTERONE THERAPY (Increase body's PROGESTERONE levels)

PROGESTERONE Therapy

- Increase body’s PROGESTERONE levels

 

 

First try to reduce body’s excess estrogen 

 

      The first approach to an estrogen dominance over PROGESTERONE (in women) or TESTOSTERONE (in men) is to reduce estrogen levels in the body - For information on how to decrease the body's excess estrogen levels, see:

 

Reduce estrogen levels

 

How to raise body’s PROGESTERONE levels 

 

 

(A)  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)

 

      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 – avocado, raw nuts and seeds, olives, salmon and tuna;

 

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

 

 

(b) 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.

One should exercise caution when utilizing PROGESTERONE supplementation.

FIRST - use other tactics  to NATURALLY boost PROGESTERONE and reduce estrogen levels in the body:

 

Before considering PROGESTERONE supplementation

 

EXCEPTION

 

PROGESTERONE Supplementation IS A USEFUL & SAFE “TOOL” for Conception and Pregnancy problems related to Luteal Phase Deficiency (LPD) to Prevent miscarriage and preterm labor/premature birth – since PROGESTERONE levels are naturally high during pregnancy

      PROGESTERONE supplementation may be beneficial when you are living today’s ‘Typical’ lifestyle - as it helps to control your hormone imbalance symptoms. However, controlling symptoms does not bring about healing. Only our bodies can heal, and when we keep putting stuff in and on our bodies in an attempt to promote healing, we just get in our body’s way. Again, decreasing the body’s estrogen load should be the first approach to your hormone imbalance.
