Using Natural Progesterone Cream WiselyWritten by Dr. Loretta Lanphier, ND, CN, HHP, CH

It is said that over ¾ of population is sleep deprived. The importance of being in bed before 10:00 p.m. so that body's biorhythms are not disturbed has been taught by natural medicine doctors for many years. The body does most of its repair and healing between hours of 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. If you are awake during these hours your body definitely looses. There is no such thing as "catching up on your sleep". Once it is lost, it cannot be regained. Weekend "sleep warriors" are actually doing more harm to their Circadian rhythms than they may realize.
Like most things in life, we must always proceed with caution. There is no magic bullet when it comes to getting body balanced and healthy. Natural progesterone is most natural and safest way to assist women with symptoms of hormonal imbalance, but we must remember that our goal is "balance" in every area.
The following table shows benefits of natural progesterone compared to estrogen. As you can see, effects of progesterone are many-we would do well to use it wisely.
We'll end this article with a comparison table that lists respective effects of both estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen Effects Progesterone Effects Stimulates breasts cysts Protects against breast cysts Increases body fat storage Helps use fat for energy and keep it off hips Salt and fluid retention Natural diuretic (water pill) Depression and headaches Natural anti-depressant Interferes with thyroid hormone Facilitates thyroid hormone action Increases blood clotting and risk of stroke Normalizes blood clotting Decreases libido (sex drive) Increases libido Impairs blood sugar control Normalizes blood sugar levels Loss of zinc and retention of copper Normalizes zinc and copper levels Reduced oxygen level in all cells Restores proper cell oxygen levels Increased risk of endometrial cancer Prevents endometrial cancer Increased risk of breast cancer Helps prevent breast cancer Helps decrease bone loss slightly Increases bone building

Balancing Your Hormones Naturally -- What To Do FirstWritten by Dr. Loretta Lanphier, ND, CN, HHP, CH

6) Once you start on a program your hormone levels should be monitored every three months for one year. This eliminates all guesswork as to whether or not what you are doing is actually working. The goal should be to get your system balanced and to hopefully stimulate hormones to start producing again. About Supplements: It would be easy for me to include, in above suggestions, vitamin/supplement recommendations like B-Complex, Vitamin E, etc. The reason that I do not is because many will go to a local drugstore or grocery store to purchase these supplements. All supplements/vitamins are not created equal. Sometimes fillers and excipients can negate any benefit that you might get from vitamin. I believe this is one reason why natural medicine is not taken seriously by many people. They tried a $9.95 supplement and it did not work, so therefore reasoning is that using a natural approach does not work. It can be over whelming and time consuming to decide which supplements are best and which ones will work. This is why I believe it is important to have a healthcare professional on your team who is trained in knowing what supplements will be absorbed, transported and utilized effectively by body.
