Progesterone and cracked heels are linked through blood levels of progesterone. Many people have found that this condition gradually disappears after using progesterone, particularly if the cream is rubbed directly onto the feet. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons, especially the so-called 'xeno-estrogens' which mimic estrogen itself, are often at the root of the probem.
Maintaining adequate blood levels of progesterone is vital. An Omega 3 essential fatty acid deficiency leads to chapped, cracked and raw skin, hands and feet. It is advisable to take between 15 to 75 ml/day of flax oil to ensure adequate intakes of this important nutrient.
