Topical Creams create bolus amount of hormones???
In the link above they say that applying creams/lotions is no better than taking orally. The liver has to deal with the hormones either way. The big concern was learning that the bolus amount of hormones in creams/lotions is nowhere near the amount the body puts out and can cause disruption of all other hormones as the body tries to find balance. I am bummed to learn this, especially after buying a large amount of NatPro. I'm really concerned. Also, I hadn't had my period for a few months before starting NatPro and after starting NatPro. I am now spotting cyclically - 2 cycles in a row - just light spotting, but also mild cramps. Should I be cycling off NatPro? I am 54 years old.
