The Platt Difference

Dr. Michael E. Platt


Dr. Platt has been a pioneer in the research and advancement of the therapeutic use of progesterone cream for use in managing adrenaline and hormonal imbalance. Dr. Platt is considered an important pioneer in observational, functional, alternative, and allopathic medicine focused on bio-identical hormones and adrenaline overload.  His three books “The Miracle of Bioidentical Hormones”, “Adrenaline Dominance” and “Platt Protocol” have received 11 literary awards.  


Dr. Platt practiced internal medicine from 1972-2009. Initially at Kaiser Permanente, one of the first HMOs, when the focus was on preventive medicine, as opposed to today’s ‘managed’ care. He later joined Ross-Loos, where doctors were required to spend an hour, one-on-one, with each patient for an in-depth study of their health in a comprehensive way. This type of ‘independent research’ provided great insight into the causation of disease. He began identifying important patterns and he was able to make important cause and effect determinations. In the late 1970s, he focused on convalescent, elder care medicine where his observation and research (and later his role as Medical Director of 30 + nursing homes in Los Angeles, CA.) led him to appreciate the importance of preventive medicine and he further developed the precepts which he employs today in his Platt Protocol. These findings centered around the importance of hormonal balance for healthy aging and anti-aging.

Adrenaline Dominance

Adrenaline triggers the fight-or-flight response, which mobilizes the body’s resources for immediate physical action. The fight-or-flight response is designed to last for only a certain period of time and then abruptly come to an end once the threat has passed. In our modern times, we are experiencing a level of heightened stress.  Dr. Platt has compiled years of compiled observational and evidenced-based treatments blocking adrenaline.  In this book “Adrenaline Dominance” he addresses conditions like anger, road rage, restless leg syndrome, teeth grinding (Bruxism), depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), brain fog, PTSD, autism, bed-wetting, leg cramps, TMJ, headaches, ADHD, interstitial cystitis, PMDD, occipital neuritis, plus many others are caused by excess adrenaline. And progesterone seems to be the hormone that can help balance both excess adrenaline, insulin, and excess estrogen along with a proper diet. Progesterone offers a natural, healthy, and effective way to help reduce excess adrenaline and also to help block its effects. By addressing the cause (i.e., high levels of adrenaline), rather than the symptoms, many conditions can often be eliminated, along with the medications used to treat them. Getting hormones into balance, changing the way people eat, and utilizing certain supplements can accomplish optimal health.

 

Progesterone - The Universal Hormone

Progesterone is one of the most important hormones in the body. Dr. Platt has dedicated the last 38 years to the healing effects it has in your body -- not only from blocking adrenaline, estrogen, and insulin, but providing hormone balance. It is a hormone that is present, along with its receptor sites, in both sexes, from fetal life until around 50. It is necessary to differentiate between natural, bio-identical progesterone and synthetic progestogens. Bio-identical progesterone is identical to the progesterone produced in the body and has many many health benefits.
