Progesterone and menopause

by Marcia Lockett
(San Anselmo, Marin County, USA)

I have been on progesterone since menopause. I discovered the benefits of natural progesterone when I read "Passage to Power" by Leslie Kenton. Until then I had been struggling with heavy periods and the gynecologist treated me with hormone injections - synthetic hormones, of course. Once I started using the cream, all these symptoms faded. I am now eighty years of age and in very good health. I do not suffer from any of the problems I see my peers taking chronic medication for daily, like arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. In fact, the only medication I use on a daily basis is a transdermal natural progesterone cream.
I recently immigrated to the US from South Africa to live with my daughter, who is 55 years old and presently going through menopause. She has been very ill since onset, some six years ago, has had a slight stroke and is on daily medication for thyroid. Since arriving, I have persuaded her to try natural progesterone and after six weeks her health has improved. However, since she has had these other complications, I would like her to see a physician who knows and understands natural hormone therapy. I am obviously not qualified to give her the kind of medical advice she needs. Where can I find such a physician in the San Francisco area? We live in Marin County.
I would appreciate any suggestions.

Progesterone and menopause

Hi Marcia I too discovered progesterone via Kenton’s book, I wonder if we’ve met before? As I live in Cape Town. I used to give talks around SA, started doing this 17 years ago. I’m so delighted to hear you’re doing so well, and on no medication. I wish I could advise you on a doctor, but they are few and far between. The nearest to you is not very near, it’s Dr Platt, and he lives in southern California. Please ask your daughter to have a look Vitamin D test done. Not only does a lack reduce the benefits of progesterone, but it’s vital for the thyroid, see here, here, here, here, here and here. A great deal of research has been done on progesterone and Traumatic Brain Injury. From this research they are finding progesterone has potential for stroke victims too, see here. Another part of their finding was the synergism between progesterone and vitamin D, see here, here and here. It’s vital to get her levels up. Your daughter might like to read these two pages we have on Peri-menopause and Menopause. Take care Wray
