I have had cancer and they say that they got it all but the bad news is that my estrogen level is a 3 and that is as high as it goes, they want me to take chemo pills and also radiation and I have refused to take any of those treatments.
what I would like to know if progesterone can bring down my estrogen.
Thank you

I am so sorry...

Hi Elaine,

I am so sorry to hear you have had cancer.

At one time my estrogen levels were very high and I developed cysts around my ovaries. Thanks to Wray I was advised to increase the amount of progesterone cream I was using daily. I increased it from 200mg to 500mg initially for three months if I remember this correctly, then I had a blood test which showed a reduction of the estrogen levels and slowly I reduced it to 400mg, and then to 340mg and my estrogen levels have stabilised now. It was 1680pmol/L and since my last blood test it is now 338pmol/L One of the cysts have gone and the others are not growing anymore.

So yes it would be a very good idea to increase the amount of progesterone cream you use daily at the moment. Don't be afraid to double or treble the amount you use and stay on it for however long you need it...three months, 6 months or even a year and once your estrogen levels have dropped to a safe level you can reduce it but please do this very slowly!

I am here for have not come to a better place here. Wray is a wonderful woman with so much to give. Take care. Karenina

high estrogen
by: Wray

Hi Elaine Yes progesterone can bring down oestrogen levels. But as you have had cancer you can't play around with low amounts, as suggested by most websites. You will need at least 1000mg/day, probably 2000mg/day. Low levels stimulate oestrogen which is not what you want. The safety of progesterone is without question, to reassure yourself please read this page here. Once your oestrogen is down and you feel stable you can begin to reduce the amount of progesterone very slowly. Please have a vitamin D test done. You live in Canada which has some of the lowest levels in the world, see here, here, here, here and here. A lack of vitamin D can lead to over 20 different cancers. Please get your level up very high, 90-100ng/ml. Dependant on your level you should take no less than 5000iu per day, although this is a maintenance dose, and will not raise levels quickly if low. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here, here and here. Please avoid sugar, all forms, including artificial sweeteners. Avoid all sweet, starchy carbohydrates, i.e. all grains, legumes, sweet fruit and root vegetables. These convert to glucose, and cancer feeds off glucose. Continued below

high estrogen Part 2
by: Wray

Hi Elaine Ketogenic diets have been found to reverse some cancers by starving the cancer cells of glucose, please consider trying it. Please have that vitamin D test. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml (175-250nmol/L) and not the 30ng/ml (75nmol/L) most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although recent research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Take care Wray
