Progesterone therapy for inflammation for MS
I am 49 years old, have had MS since I was 28. I have started a high dose vitamin d therapy for my MS and it is working wonders. I also take vit K and magnesium. I had a hysterectomy at 45 due to endometriosis but my ovaries were left insitu. I have not had my hormone levels tested but I am experiencing trouble sleeping and crying for no particular reason. I gather I am peri-menopausal.
I try not to go to the doctor unless urgent as they always try to entice me to take DMD's, (which I have never taken). I am wanting to incorporate progesterone for helping lower my inflammation, help with neuro repair for the MS and get the bonus of treating peri-menopause symptoms at the same time, (I have had no hot flushes or any other symptoms but I do know that I am early stage osteoporosis from a bone scan prior to commencing high dose vit d). I take no other drugs for MS, just vit D and the co factors and eat a clean dairy, gluten and sugar free diet.
Do you think this progesterone therapy is a good option for me? Thankyou, appreciate your input.
