Progesterone is a hormonal balancer, particularly of estrogens. It enhances the beneficial effect of estrogens while mitigating the problems associated with estrogen excess.
Natural Progesterone also helps regulate healthy apoptosis (programmed cell death). Progesterone also helps create a balance of all other steroid hormones. It also has intrinsic calming and diuretic properties.
Progesterone is the “Pro-Gestational” hormone and plays a critical role in conception, full-term pregnancy and delivering a healthy baby. While it is important for all women, it’s importance in men for the maintenance of prostate health has been recently established.
It is vitally important that we accurately evaluate the effects of estrogen, & progesterone on:
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Migraine Headaches
- Mood Swings
- Heart Disease

Other major disorders, including breast cancer, stroke, & heart disease have also been shown to be contributed to by a hormone imbalance.

What are the sources of these foreign hormones or xeno-estrogens and why do they create an imbalance of my hormones?
