Cancer concerns

by Nicola
(U.K.)

Having suffered with symptoms of pms for over twenty years and experiencing great improvement using natural progesterone cream over the last few months (100mg a day) I thought it was the answer to my health problems and preventative for various cancers. However, doing some general research into progesterone cream I came across this article at http://www.gaiaresearch.co.za/progesteronecancer.html and now I am confused and concerned as to whether it is as safe as it is supposed to be. What do you think of the points made about estrogen dominance being a myth and the idea that natural progesterone cream can increase cancer risk?

This is scary, scary, scary. I hope that Wray will comment on this one. I'm a progesterone user and never felt there was anything dangerous about it. Thanks . . .

Hi Nicola That man is a nut case! Two people I know who run organic skin care companies, have had their products slammed by him, on the ingredients they use, the fact that they list toxic ingredients which he uses in his, and a whole string of other inflammatory remarks. Years ago I sent the link to his site to a naturopath in the UK who prescribes our cream, in case any of her patients came across his site. She came back to me with much the same words as my first sentence. As far as increasing cancer risk, this is utter nonsense, it's been used successfully in many cases, please see our page on Cancer. It's safety is without question, Dr Dalton, who practiced in Harley Street before her death, began using it in the 1940's, and since then there has been no record of adverse affects. Compared to oestrogen, which has so many risks it's not worth touching. Finally you might like to read this study here on how it reverses tumours. For more general info please see our page on How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray

Hi there. I am with Wray on this one and believe 100% in what she says. Months ago I sent this article to my Specialist Physician and he said this man is well known in the medical industry as someone whose advice you should NOT take. His comments are quite convincing and I can understand how people can feel confused, but when you consider that most hormone related cancers appear after menopause when our Progesterone is virtually zero and estrogen is therefore dominant, it does not make sense that Progesterone causes cancer. I think our Progesterone levels are highest when we are pregnant. How many pregnant women get cancer? I think the fact that you have been feeling so well, is a good guideline that Progesterone is working for you. I hope you are using Natpro. Good luck.

Another misconception about progesterone! Of course you will have people saying that progesterone causes cancer, they simply do not know or understand the benefits of it. Progesterone actually inhibits cancer growth - see here. Estrogen actually causes cancer - see here

If this were the case, why then do they administer as much as 1200mg to those suffering from TBI? and as Carol said, how many pregnant women have died from cancer relating to progesterone?

I am also with Wray on this one - 100%.

Hi Carol Thanks so much for this input, as the man is a menace. Over the years I've had others ask the same question. So pleased you have had the same confirmation from your doctor. Take care Wray

Hi there Yes it safe to use at any amount, although I don't recommend low, as I've found too many adverse symptoms occurring. If a person has cancer then I would recommend no less than 1000mg/day, please see this page here. Take care Wray
