CONFUSED ABOUT WHICH DOSE TO AVOID REACTIONS:GOOD NEWS!!!
Thank you thank Wray and all of you on this forum,
such a relief to know I am not alone and have guidance and that progesterone works, thank you so much for all the work you do for all of us!!
Good news, is that, as Natpro shipment had not arrived yet, I did follow your advises, Wray,and this is what I did
so as initially i had used this progesterone in coconut oil, at only 20 or 40 mg, and it had not worked, but made things worse, so I had stopped using it
Butt few days ago I started to use it again but this time,--- as you suggested---, I did increase to 80 or a little more mg
Well, it was like a miracle, after already few hours the anxiety subsided, I felt really calm, no heart palpitations, and at night I slept like a baby, almost too much but I needed it so badly,my bloating stopped, and finally the day after my hair loss stopped, no hair falling when combing or shampooing, my hair structure felt different too, and this result is still going on as of today, even if I still have not ELIMINATED all of the xenoestrogens and food rich in estrogen, still using normal make up and hand soap
So I know for sure now those symptoms were not due to a hyperthyroid conditions but to estrogen dominance!! And that indeed thew solution was in increase the dose, as you advised me, so at least the confusion is gone and I am glad, thank you
Finally yesterday Naptro arrived and here is some not so good new--- but I am sure I just need some more guidance
Well the bad news is that with the other progesterone I succeeded to bring things back to normal by using only 80 mg of progesterone
With Natpro I used a full teaspoon (which is supposed to be about 166 mg of progesterone) but it did not work , actually I was anxious the whole day and the bloating came back and so did the insomnia, fortunately my hair is doing still well though,
So from what i have experienced it seems that with the previous coconut oil progesterone u need less maybe because is best absorbed
And maybe with Natpro u need more, but I intend to continue using Natpro though, for the reason that the skin does not stay greasy after applying it and because it dries out quickly and can put clothes on soon after, with the other one I have to wait a bit and it stays oily for the whole time!!
So I am going to use a teaspoon and half today, and see if it works
My question is: for a teaspoon I had to rub it all over my upper leg and thigh and rub and rub because it was already a lot of cream, not if I use one and half or even two teaspoons, can I divide it to both upper legs or both legs?
And when I rotate, next time can I take two parts of the body to let it absorb, because one part of the body s too little for so much cream?
Also, I am not sure I have understood when to stop the cream, I started on day 13 as my cycle is of between 26 and 28 days, shall I use it for 14 days (counting day 13 as first) and then stop?
Or do i have to wait until my bleeding appears first, then I stop?
Then I wanted to know if you have a list of all the food and herbs that are phytoestrogens, it seems that most of greens are so it has become so difficult for me to eat as it seems that all food is
Here is a short list of food that I took form this website http://www.sensiblehealth.com/Journey-04.xhtml
" The following are some of the herbs and foods with estrogenic activities:HERBSFOODS"
"Anise, hops, fennel, black cohosh, milk thistle, clover, red clover, Don Quai, licorice, ginseng, royal jelly, peony, nettle, sage, fenugreek, evening primrose oil, burdock, chamomiles, rhubar, bFrench bean, date palm, dates, garlic, pomegranate, apple, soyabean, chick pea, cherry, alfalfa, soya sprouts, cow pea, green beans, red beans, split peas, flaxseed, raspberry, carrot and squash (both have beta carotene)"
I wanted to know what you think of it Wray, does it seem accurate to you?
Once I start, do I have to use the progesterone for the rest of my life?
And, if I get better and really stable, still using the cream, can I afford sometime to drink my organic hot cacao or coffee or eat herbs again, does the progesterone protect against their effects, once is used on a regular basis?
Well I will keep you updated and let you know how an increased dose of Natpro will work
Thank you so much for now
