Metta Progesterone Cream

How Do I Use Natural Progesterone Cream?

Progesterone in the form a Moisturizing Cream can be applied to the face, neck, chest, inner arms, palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet. Metta Brand Naturals™ Progesterone Cream can be applied to the same capillary beds for as long as needed. The cream is readily absorbed and leaves no trace after a few minutes. During absorption, the progesterone bypasses the liver and goes directly to the specific receptor sites.

Please Note: Everyone is different. Some women require more progesterone cream to help alleviate symptoms, while others may use less for the same result. For the first 3 months, use one 2 oz. jar per month. Next it may be beneficial to cut back on the amount of natural progesterone each month until estrogen dominant symptoms occur. Then one may return to the previous dosage used without symptoms.

What exactly is Metta Brand Naturals™ Progesterone Cream, and how does it differ from synthetic progesterone?

Natural progesterone is derived from diosgenin obtained from organic tubers (Mexican Wild Yams). Through laboratory process, diosgenin is synthesized into the progesterone molecule that is identical to progesterone in the body. Pharmaceutical manufacturers on the other hand, alter the chemical makeup of progesterone in order to create synthetic progestins. These progestins produced by pharmaceutical manufacturers are altered on a molecular level, whereby their structures are no longer natural to the body, and may cause many bad side effects.

Can Natural Progesterone Help With Fibrocystic Breasts?

According to Dr. John R. Lee, fibrocystic breasts are merely a sign of estrogen dominance, or relatively high estrogen levels and low progesterone levels. Therefore, using more naturally physiological doses of progesterone may eliminate fibrocystic breasts in a few months.

Can I use Natural Progesterone If There Is Family History Of Breast Or Uterine Cancer?

Dr. Lee does in fact recommend it in his books on menopause, pre-menopause and breast cancer. Breast cancer and endometrial cancer are two cancers that are related to gonadal hormones (estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone). Cancer occur in tissues sensitive to these gonadal hormones. Unopposed estrogen is the only known cause of endometrial cancer, though there may be other factors involved. Unopposed estrogens are also thought to contribute to breast cancer.

I Am Already Taking Hormones From My Doctor, Why Should I Switch To Natural Progesterone?

Dr. Lee mentions in his books that natural hormones are simply an alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Synthetic progesterone, known as progestins, have many side effects and synthetic estrogen may be dangerous to your health, especially if taken without natural progesterone. If someone is taking estrogen (HRT), a gradual step is to start natural progesterone cream and gradually reduce the estrogen dose. Reduce estrogen by one half every month for three months then discontinue use of estrogen.

**If you are using birth control pills or injections, it is important that you discontinue use when you start on natural progesterone.

I'm Postmenopausal, Will I Start Menstruating Again If I Use Natural Hormones?

Occasionally, upon beginning use of natural hormone supplementation, a postmenopausal woman could experience some breakthrough bleeding or a "period." This is a perfectly normal response and is nothing to cause alarm. The progesterone is simply causing the body to rid itself of excess stored estrogen, which can sometimes stimulate a uterine shedding, thus break through bleeding. It may take 3 to 6 months to regulate your cycle.

I Have Facial Hair; Especially Above My Upper Lip That Requires Shaving Occasionally, What Causes This?

This is a condition called "Hirsutism,” which is defined as an excessive growth of facial and body hair. It indicates that there is an hormonal imbalance between estrogen, testosterone (the dominant male hormone) and progesterone. Progesterone acts as a regulator for the entire endocrine system. A woman who has the hirsute problem probably has PMS, too. Both menopausal and menstruating women have reported that facial hair (and body hair) decreased or completely disappeared after three to six months of regular application of cream as previously described. Natural progesterone is needed to effect proper hormonal balance.

Is Natural Progesterone Useful After a Hysterectomy And For Menopausal Women?

Many women experience hot flashes following a pre-menopausal hysterectomy, and in the beginning of the natural onset of menopause. Natural progesterone may be effective for relieving hot flashes. Many women have reported a complete cessation of flashes within 3 to 8 weeks.

Is Natural Progesterone Indicated For Osteoporosis?

Many medical authorities tell female patients who are post-menopausal that osteoporosis is inevitable. John R. Lee MD, has proven this often repeated statement is simply untrue. The results of his ongoing clinical study with women are noteworthy. Patients have experienced new bone density ranging from 5 to 40 percent for women who have used natural progesterone cream for duration of between 6 to 48 months. His results also indicated this therapy is successful even several decades after menopause. One of his elderly patients has been using natural progesterone for many years and now has greater than 50 percent new bone density as proven by dualphoton absorptiometry. Dr. Lee has found that osteoporosis may be prevented or reversible in many cases.

Do Natural Hormones Help Vaginal Dryness?

Vaginal dryness can occur in women of all ages for various reasons, but it is primarily present in postmenopausal women. Natural hormones in the form of a cream base can be used intra vaginally and has been very successful in treating vaginal dryness and vulvar atrophy associated with aging.

Are there any other benefits of Natural Progesterone use?

Additional benefits for women include: improved brain function, diminished muscular aches and pains, improvement of skin problems including acne, seborrhea, rosacea, psoriasis and keratoses, and improved sleep pattern.
