Natural Progesterone Oil Supplementation and Hormone Balancing
Based on the research of Raymond Peat, Ph.D. 

About 60 years ago, progesterone was thought to be the main hormone produced by the ovaries and necessary for fertility and maintaining a healthy pregnancy.  Hence, some mistakenly had the impression that it isn't needed when you don't want to get pregnant.

However, it has proved to be the most protective hormone the body produces and the large amounts produced during pregnancy result from the developing baby's need for protection from a stressful environment.  Typically, the brain contains a very high concentration of progesterone, indicating its protective function for that very important organ.  Also, the thymus gland, a key organ of our immune system, is profoundly dependent on progesterone.

In experiments, progesterone was found to be the basic hormone of adaptation and of resistance to stress.  The adrenal glands use progesterone to produce their anti-stress hormones, and when there is enough progesterone, they don't have to produce the potentially harmful cortisone.
 

I am 54 years old and have been using Progest E for 8 years.   Can't live without it.  Great sleeping, well being.

Thanks for the dosage article. It has been a mystery to me as to how much to take.

Wonderful.

                          Progesterone Deficiency

In a progesterone deficiency, we produce too much cortisone which causes osteoporosis, aging of the skin, damage to the brain cells, and the accumulation of fat, especially on the back and abdomen.

Experiments have shown progesterone to relieve anxiety, improve memory, protect brain cells, and even prevent epileptic seizures.  It promotes respiration, and has been used to improve emphysema.  In the circulatory system, it prevents bulging veins by increasing the tone of blood vessels, and improves the efficiency of the heart.

It reverses many of the signs of aging in the skin, and promotes strong bone growth.  It can relieve many types of arthritis, too, and helps a variety of immunological problems.

The best way to intake natural progesterone is dissolved in vitamin E because it can enter the blood stream almost as soon as it contacts any membrane, such as lips, tongue, gums, or palate.  And when swallowed, it continues to be absorbed by the digestive process.

If progesterone is dissolved in vitamin E, it is absorbed very efficiently, and quickly dispersed to all tissues.  If a woman has ovaries, progesterone helps them to produce both progesterone and estrogen as needed, and also helps to restore normal functioning of the thyroid gland and other glands as well.  If ovaries have been removed, progesterone may be taken consistently to replace the lost supply, since a progesterone deficiency has often been associated with increased susceptibility to cancer and progesterone has been used to treat some types of cancer.

It is important to emphasize that progesterone is not just the hormone of pregnancy.  To use it only to nourish the uterus would be similar to telling a man he doesn't need testosterone if he doesn't plan to father children, except that progesterone is far greater and more basic significance than testosterone.

While men do naturally produce progesterone, and can sometimes benefit from using it, it is not  a male hormone.  Some people get that impression, because some physicians recommend combining estrogen with either testosterone or progesterone to protect against some of estrogen's harmful side effects, but progesterone is the body's natural complement to estrogen.  Used alone, progesterone often makes it unnecessary to use estrogen for hot flashes or insomnia, or other symptoms of menopause.

Beware of progesterone creams using ingredients that become toxic when ingested.  Some products are labeled as "progestogens" or "progestins" which do not produce the desired results and contain toxic synthetic substances.

While use of vitamin E is the best vehicle for progesterone intake, beware of tocopherol acetate (synthetic vitamin E) since it is only about half as efficiently absorbed as the simple tocopherol (natural vitamin E).

                                                                        Progest-E Complex 

Dr. Peat's patented natural progesterone formula in natural vitamin E comes in a 10% solution, one drop containing about three milligrams of progesterone.  Normally, the body produces 10 to 20 milligrams per day.  A dose of 3 or 4 drops usually brings the blood levels up to the normal range, but this dose can be repeated several times during the day if needed to control symptoms.

                                                              Dr. Peat's Dosage Recommendations

For topical treatment of sun damaged skin, or acne, wrinkles, dark marks, the oil can be applied directly to the affected areas.

Since progesterone has none of the harmful side effects of other hormones (except the alteration of the menstrual cycle if taken at the wrong time of the month), the basic procedure should be to use it in sufficient quantity to make the symptoms disappear, and to time its use so that menstrual cycles are not disrupted.  This normally means using it only between ovulation and menstruation unless symptoms are sufficiently serious that a missed period is not important to you.

If a person has an enlarged thyroid gland, progesterone encourages secretion and unloading of the stored colloid and can bring on a temporary hyperthyroid state which is a corrective process.  A thyroid supplement, like Thyodine may be used to shrink the goiter before progesterone is given.

Normal amounts of progesterone promote thyroid secretion, while a deficiency, especially when too much estrogen is present, causes the thyroid to enlarge.  Some mention euphoria as a "side-effect" of progesterone usage, but euphoria is simply an indication of good physiological state.  To avoid unexpected anesthesia, the correct dose should be determined by taking about 10 mg (3-4 drops) at a time, allowing it to spread into the membranes of the mouth, and repeating the dose after 10 minutes until the symptoms are controlled.

An excessive estrogen/progesterone ratio (should be 1 part to 10 parts, estrogen to progesterone), is involved in producing aggravating symptoms such thin, bluish skin. Low thyroid is one cause of excess estrogen, and when high estrogen is combined with low thyroid function, the skin can look relatively bloodless.

Symptoms in cycling women are most common around ovulation and in the premenstrual week, when the estrogen/progesterone ratio is normally highest.  At puberty, in the early twenties and in the late thirties and menopause are the ages when the ratio is most often disturbed - and these are also the ages when thyroid disorders are most common.

The individual who suffers from one aspect of the progesterone (and/or thyroid) deficiency will tend to develop other problems at varying times.  with cyclic depressions or migraine headaches at 22, there will possibly be breast disease alter, and often there will be problems with pregnancy.  These people with a history of sever symptoms are the ones most likely to have problems around menopause.  Prenatal exposure to poorly balanced hormones seems to predispose children to later hormone imbalances.

Excess stress (which can block progesterone synthesis and elevate estrogen) may being on symptoms in someone who never had them.  As well as darker days without sun, toxins and nutritional deficiencies.  A very common cause of an estrogen excess is a dietary protein deficiency because the liver cannot detoxify estrogen when it is under nourished.

With a diet high in protein and vitamin A, progesterone can usually be reduced each month.  Using thyroid supplementation will also usually reduce the amount of progesterone needed.  Occasionally, a women won't feel any effect even from 100 mg of progesterone and this may indicate they need to use thyroid supplementation and diet changes to normalize their estrogen, prolactin and cortisol levels.

Progesterone stimulates the ovaries and adrenals to produce progesterone, and it also activates the thyroid.  It shouldn't be necessary to use progesterone indefinitely unless the ovaries have been removed.  In slender post-menopausal women, 10 mg per day is usually enough to prevent progesterone deficiency.

Ina 10% solution of progesterone in vitamin E, one drop contains about three milligrams of progesterone.  Normally the body produces 10 to 20 milligrams per day.  A dose of 3 or 4 drops usually brings the blood levels up to  normal range, but this dose can be repeated throughout the day to control symptoms.

For general purposes, it is most economical and effective to take progesterone dissolved in vitamin E orally, for example taking a few drops on the lips and tongue, or rubbing it into the gums.  (It is good for the general health of the gums, too.)  These membranes are very thin and hence the progesterone can easily and quickly enter the blood. when swallowed, the vitamin E allows it to be absorbed through the walls of the stomach and intestine.    

As was mentioned previously, topical application of this oil aids sun damaged skin.  For topical treatment of arthritis, osteoporosis, tendinitis, bursitis, or varicose veins, to speed absorption it is best to apply a few drops of olive oil to the area, and then to rub the progesterone -vitamin E solution into and around the affected area.
