Auto immune disease (myasthenia gravis )

by Lisa
(Theresa NY )

Hello, my name is Lisa and I have had mysthenia gravis for about 13 years. My mother recently turned me on to using natural progesterone mostly because of symptoms being tired, fatigued and sleepy a lot throughout the day as well as many other reasons. I love how much it has helped me.

My question is how much of the natural progesterone cream should a person with my condition use? I am still menstruating and am confused about how and when to start and stop using it in order to have a period as well?

Auto immune disease (myasthenia gravis)

Hi Lisa

Most auto immune disease are caused by inflammation and is an end result of long term oxidative stress. This can be caused by emotional or physical trauma, and nutritional or environmental pollutants, in most cases it is a combination of all these. Progesterone, Vitamin D3 and Magnesium is needed. A Vitamin D3 deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, do you know what your D3 level is? This is such an essential nutrient and is low in all autoimmune diseases - see here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15987844

You do not state your age or how strong the progesterone cream is that you are using or how much you are using, but I suggest that you start on a 3.33% cream, 200-300mg per day. This should be used every day with no breaks for 2-6 months or until you feel stable.
