Can't wait to start!

(Austin, TX)

I just received my order and I'm eager and delighted to start using Nat Pro!

I'm 58 years old. I had a total hysterectomy when I was 31 because of endometriosis. I was immediately put on HRT and remained on HRT for 20 years! Right about the time HRT was a big controversy, I found a lump on my breast. It turned out to be a cyst. I did a little research and decided I was getting off HRT. I went off it cold turkey. A year later I found a doctor who practiced natural medicine. He put me on progesterone and testosterone. I felt great! Well after two years of seeing him he passed on and new doctors came on board with different ideas on natural medicine. Once my prescriptions for progesterone and testosterone ran out I once again went without. It’s been three years now that I have not taken any progesterone or testosterone! I came across your website by searching hair lost. I have alopecia areata. I read your whole website! I even took the test although I knew I didn’t need to. I know I am progesterone deficiency. I scored a 65! What is your recommended dosage for me? I applied ½ teaspoon this morning and will apply another ½ teaspoon tonight. And will continue this dosage until I hear from you. Since I don’t have periods anymore can I use it without stopping? And do you have any other recommendations?

Can't wait to start!

Hi Letti I'm delighted you've started back again on progesterone, but relieved you haven't added the testosterone, see why here, here, here, here, here here, here, here, here and here. 65 is a high score! I'm pleased you're using the cream twice a day, this is the minimum it should be used for. The 1tsp a day you're using will give about 170mg/day, this is a good amount. But please watch out for Oestrogen Dominance, it can come out of the blue. The only way to overcome it is to use more, although many blame the progesterone and reduce it. This does help, but only because the progesterone is no longer stimulating oestrogen. It's essential to make progesterone the dominant hormone, this can only be done by increasing the amount. If you find you have to do this, continue on the increased amount until you feel stable, then reduce by no more than 16mg/day (1/2ml of cream). Please have a vitamin D test done, it's vital for the anagen phase of hair growth. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Continued below.

Hi Letti Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. You might consider taking the nutrients which help hair loss and re-growth…….
5000iu's/day vitamin D
2000mg/day N-actyl cysteine
2000mg/day inositol
2-3mg biotin
100mg thiamine (B1)
Take care Wray
