Natural Progesterone Cream for Breast Cancer, Uterine Fibroids, Endometriosis, Fibrocystic Breasts and Hypothyrodism
I have been researching about natural progresterone cream for Nanay since last year. Though she was prescribe I3C/DIM to balance her hormones, she was not prescribed with Natural Progesterone at all.
On the other hand, I was prescribed with natural progesterone as my blood tests show progesterone deficiency which could have caused hypothyroid symptoms. I was told to use 5mg every day during day 14 to day 26 of my menstrual cycle. It helped me to relax and have a good night sleep.
Now, Nanay wants to use my progesterone cream for herself. I am adamant as our endocrinologist did not prescribe it to her, knowing he knew better that her estrogen dominance can also mean a progesterone deficiency. He will probably change his mind once he see my mother’s ultrasound report, showing uterine fibroid.
Based on Dr. Lee’s book, Uterine fibroid can be treated using Natural progresterone cream
* Use a progesterone cream that gives you 40 mg/day of natural progesterone per day for the first 2-3 months
* If the progesterone cream/oil contains 500 mg/day, for the first 2-3 months use two ounces of cream per month; this is about one (1) teaspoon per day.
* If the progesterone cream/oil contains 500 mg/day, after the uterus reverts to normal after 3-12 months, use one ounce of cream per month to maintain a healthy uterus.
* Apply the cream during the two weeks before menses for 14 days if premenopausal (before menopause)
* Apply the cream/oil for three weeks on and one week off if postmenopausal (after menopause)
We will see our endocrinologist again, next week – hope that Nanay will be a good candidate for Natural progresterone cream, given her breast cancer history, the solid nodules on her left breast and the 3cm uterine fibroid.
A friend of mine was diagnosed last month with Endometriosis and is considering surgery to have it removed. One of the adverse risks of surgery for endometriosis is that she may not be able to bear children– she is only 28 years old and considering to get married soon. We cried silently together– just thinking about it. Its so damn unfair!! She had been a responsible adult, finished her degree, focused on her career before jumping into a serious relationship and eventually get married. Other women get unplanned preganncy– being completely irresponsibile about their health and about their feminity, and never get cancer, fibroids or endometriosis– why does bad things happen to good people?
It made me all the more enthusiastic to know more about natural hormones (Progesterone, thyroid, iodine)– as it seems all of these are interrelated. So many women have had their uterus or ovaries removed due to the notion that surgical removal of these organs will resolve their estrogen dominance only to create new health issues. Some of them are prescribed with birth control pills– which also creates new health problems and may even cause breast cancer.
There is hope! Women need not sacrifice fertility to solve their health issues anymore. New age doctors are now supporting natural hormones (though not entirely saying that surgery is taboo– due to ethical reasons, I do believe that surgery can be life saving for specific situations– but I guess can be an overkill for endometriosis or uterine fibroids.).. this means as women, we have to be better informed and equipped to navigate the medical system that we need for our survival but can also lead us to a black hole if we allow them to make the decisions for us.
