Progesterone is truly a universal hormone because it provides benefits to people of both sexes and all ages.
It has the remarkable ability to block the three most toxic hormones in the body, namely estradiol, insulin, and adrenaline. Because of this unique ability, it can transform various health clinics into wellness centers.
Because it can help to treat the underlying cause of illness – a concept that is not taught in medical school – people can achieve the dual benefit of getting rid of a condition felt to be incurable, and also getting off of medications that will no longer be necessary.
To promote a better understanding about the actions of progesterone cream, the benefits will be presented in accordance with the individual hormones that it blocks. It is important to note, however, that the correct strength of the cream be utilized in order to obtain the desired benefits. In this regard, it is recommended that the strength of the cream be 5%, which will provide a dose of 50 mg per pump.
Perhaps the area it is best known is that it helps block the detrimental effects of estrogen. In this regard, it helps prevent or relieve cramps, breast tenderness, and PMS in those women who are menstruating. In addition, it eliminates other problems caused by estrogen including asthma and migraine headaches, morning sickness, and helps to prevent all cancers caused by estrogen, including cancers of the breast, uterus, ovaries, cervix, colon, and prostate. Women with low levels of progesterone, such as all women on BC pills, can easily windup with fibroids, endometriosis, and PCOS.
The second major area of benefit of progesterone is the effect it has on insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is closely associated with the causation of both obesity and type II diabetes, as well as many of the complications of diabetes. In addition, insulin raises blood pressure and is felt to be a major factor in speeding up the aging process. Progesterone blocks insulin receptor sites on cells, thereby helping to prevent drops in blood sugar (hypoglycemia). As a result, it prevents sleepiness between 3 and 4 PM (when insulin levels peak), or after eating, or while driving. This ability to somehow block the effects of insulin also helps with weight loss; it prevents the action of the only hormone that is known to put on fat around the middle.
The third major area of benefit of progesterone is that it appears to block the action of adrenaline, and also helps to prevent the over-production of this very powerful hormone. Adrenaline is popularly known as “the-fight-or-flight” hormone, and excess levels can create anger, including road rage, as well as insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and teeth grinding. When anger is internalized, it can lead to depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, IBS, plus other problems. As a neurotransmitter in the brain, adrenaline can cause the mind to race which can cause problems focusing – i.e. ADHD – or “brain fog”. It also causes urinary urgency, referred to as an “over-active bladder’ in TV ads, as well as bed-wetting in children. In addition, adrenaline is probably the number one cause of unexplained weight gain. Leg cramps at night are also caused by adrenaline, and can be relieved within 30-60 seconds when progesterone cream is applied to the area of cramping.
Progesterone for Men:
Taking into consideration how progesterone functions, the benefits of progesterone in men relate to its ability to block the toxic effects of estrogen, insulin, and adrenaline. In this regard, the blockage of estrogen helps to prevent prostate and breast cancer and also to eliminate asthma.
With regard to insulin, the blockage of this hormone helps to prevent fat around the middle, sleepiness during the day and while driving, helps to lower blood pressure, helps to prevent diabetes, and helps to prolong the life span.
With regard to adrenaline, progesterone helps people to sleep through the night, avoid teeth grinding and jaw clenching, eliminate cramps in the calves and feet, get rid of RLS, and helps to eliminate anger, road rage, anxiety and depression, ADHD, fibromyalgia, IBS, tinnitus, and peripheral neuropathy.
In addition, it prevents weight gain.
A major miscellaneous benefit is that it is the drug of choice for traumatic brain injuries.
Progesterone for Women:
Again, taking into consideration how progesterone functions, the benefits to women relate to its ability to block the same three hormones.
With regard to estrogen, it helps to prevent PMS, cramps, breast tenderness, menstrual migraines, six different cancers (breast, uterus, ovarian, vaginal, cervical and colon), gallbladder disease, asthma, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. It can eliminate morning sickness during pregnancy in the first three months, prevent or eliminate PCOS, prevent or eliminate fibroids, endometriosis, or fibrocystic disease of the breast. It also helps to block fat deposition around the hips, thighs, and buttocks.
With regard to insulin it has the same effect in women as men.
With regard to adrenaline, it also has the same benefits as those found in men. In addition, it can also eliminate PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric dysfunction) and hyperemesis gravidarum.
There are miscellaneous benefits of progesterone in women that include the following: helps with conception, helps to prevent miscarriages, and eliminates postpartum depression.
Progesterone for Children and Babies:
The fetus is exposed to incredibly high levels of progesterone while it is in the womb. It is born with all the receptor sites for it, but the body is not producing it as yet. The primary benefit of progesterone in young people is in the area of its ability to block adrenaline.
In this regard, it can eliminate colic in babies, sometimes within minutes, and help to reduce the symptoms regarded as the “terrible twos”. Later on, it can help to eliminate bed wetting in as little as 24 hours. It helps children with ADHD to focus and sleep better.
In addition, it can provide excellent benefits to children with autism who can also present with extremely high levels of adrenaline.
