Dear Wray, My first order of Natpro has arrived and I'm very excited about my first treatment.

I've read that men can benefit from Progesterone supplementation as well as women. My concern here is my father (70) whose PSA level has risen during the last couple of months and according to his doctor's report he's been struggling to keep it down for the last few years. Although he's been on medication (not sure what he's taking) but the level is apparently alarming so I told him about your Progesterone cream and I would be for ever grateful if you would send me some detailed information on the effects it can have on men with enlarged prostates.

He's been taking a table spoon of fish oil since I can remember and has a relatively healthy diet (although recently he's been under more stress and gets less direct sunlight during the day).

Unfortunately his Urologist doesn't believe in natural supplementation let alone medication so my only hope is Progesterone!

Thank you so very much for all the time and effort you're putting in to help people around the world..
God bless

Enlarged prostate
by: Wray

Hi Anoosha Don't worry about the title, I'll use the one in your second comment. We do have many men using progesterone for BPH, it's an excellent anti-inflammatory, see here for one comment. Please read about the PSA test here, here and here. Please ask your father to have his oestrogen and prolactin levels tested, there's evidence these are implicated in BPH, see here. And in cancer, see here, here and here. Progesterone reduces both oestrogen and prolactin. Prolactin suppresses dopamine, this neurotransmitter is involved in mood and sexual arousal. A lack causes depression and low libido. But high dopamine levels suppress prolactin, to raise levels of dopamine take the amino acid tyrosine, this is the precursor to dopamine. Start at 500mg/day, increasing gradually, an excess causes symptoms to return. These are more papers, see here, here, here, here and here. Please ask him to have a vitamin D test done, a lack of this is implicated in prostate problems, particularly cancer, see here, here, here, here and here. For info on testing see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Bless you too! Take care Wray
