Enormous Ratio Change-Why Is This Safe?
Good morning Wray,
I am a new user of Natpro.
I am 48 female with a large fibroid and endometrial hyperplasia.
My Estrogen Dominance was diagnosed in Feb this year by a GP in Australia who has the added qualification of Doctor of Chiropractic and Doctor of Natropathy.
I went to this Doctor after the OBGYN I had been seeing for 15 years suggested that as I now had 2 seriously health impacting conditions of my uterus I would be better of without it and should book a hysterectomy surgery.
The same Doctor removed a 25cm, 2.5kg (yes those dimensions are correct) fibroid surgically 15 years ago. I had a Myomectomy for Gross Fundal, Subserosal Myoma through Laparotic Incision.
I would not have a Hysterectomy then either as I wanted a 4th baby ( she was born 5 years ago ).
Clearly I was Estrogen dominant all those years before she was born when that first fibroid developed.
Which led me to seek alternative opinion which brought me to the present day and NEW Doctor.
Saliva, blood and hair analysis showed my P4 to be virtually undetectable and my E2 to be excessively elevated. This Doctor suggested natural progesterone cream therapy.
However he will not agree with high doses. He will only support me using 1-2ml of Natpro maximum per day on days 5-28.
Apart from the fibroid and endometrial hyperplasia my overridingly distressful symptoms are anxiety and insomnia and fluid retention.
The initial dose of 1ml then 2ml of Natpro did make the Estrogen dominance worse as I had read on your site it might. I upped the dose to 3ml and then 4ml per day and the symptoms are still there with also the added discomfit of an elevated heartbeat on occasion without physical exertion and sore breasts.
I checked your page with salivary hormone levels Pre and post treatment and saw a grossly raised P4 level in all cases.
This worries me as those women are still not hormonally "balanced".. I see on other pages and personally that you believe in treating with Progesterone to symptoms. If the client feels they need more then use more.
I have used more. It has made me feel worse. My Doctor is not supportive of these larger doses.
I am really unsure of what to do now and can see no end in site but higher and higher doses of Natpro and that will cost me a lot of money and quite likely give me grossly elevated progesterone levels which could throw out my other hormones.
