Hi Wray, I was just wondering if I can use 400mg of Natpro/day for a durated length of time?? I have been using this amount for approx. 6 months & still seem to have estrogen dominance when I cut down, such as not being able to sleep. I just want to confirm that I can use this higher amount for a long time or indefinetly. thank you

Hi Marion It is safe, but costly! Are you possibly reducing too quickly? I recommend 16mg each time, and to stay on that reduction for a few days before reducing further. 16mg is 1/2ml or 10th tsp. There are a number of nutrients which help sleep, inositol is one, tryptophan another. We have a list of them on our page on Natural Antidepressants. Please avoid all phytoestrogens, found in many foods, see here. Also check your skin care products, as these often contain oestrogenic chemicals, see the Skin Deep website. A lack of vitamin D reduces the benefits of progesterone, please have a test done. Many women find getting their levels up that symptoms resolve, in spite of high progesterone, see here Living in Canada your level could be low. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Take care Wray
