Estrogen & Progesterone Balance

by André ROUX

Sorry for my English... After having recommended, as a Naturopathic Practitionner, ProGest Cream, then ProVive Cream, I use to prescribe Natpro for 5 or 6 Years.

Recently, some of my patients (female of course) have doubtful result with the cream. Using Progesterone for 2 to 10 years, it seems that estrogen still dominates. Are you sure that NatPro contains efficient Progesterone? And really Natural Progesterone?

Recently, in France, we've got Natpro with a lot of water in it. Is it normal? Thanks for your answer. Kind Regards.

Estrogen & Progesterone Balance
by: Wray

Hi Andre We did have problems with one batch of cream, the water did separate out. We always replace faulty tubes, so please send us an email via this link here. We do use natural progesterone and it does contain 2000mg/tube. We have saliva tests done regularly to see if the progesterone is absorbing well, in the 14 years we've been doing this it has proved excellent. We can send you the test results as attachments if you would send us that email. We have them done by a naturopath in the UK, and she's always delighted with the results. Oestrogen dominance is a problem, I've found it does persist if not enough is used. I recommend between 100-200mg/day. But the main factor is stress, this drops progesterone sharply, so more cream must be used to prevent the adverse symptoms returning. Fat cells produce oestrogen, so the more fat cells we have the more oestrogen will be made, another factor I tell people. I've also found that as a woman enters peri-menopause and her endogenous progesterone levels start dropping, the higher the supplemental amount should be. The worse the symptoms, the more progesterone is needed. For instance I've found 400mg/day for 4-5 days dramatically reduces or stops hot flushes. Heavy, continual bleeding needs between 400-600mg/day, endometriosis needs 500mg/day. Please send us an email via the link I gave above, we want to replace those tubes for you. And your English is perfect! Take care Wray
