INFORMATION ABOUT OSTEOPOROSIS
NATURAL PROGESTERONE VS. ESTROGEN
Osteoporosis, or bone loss, in women has led doctors to routinely prescribe estrogen supplementation, but is there really any benefit in this? In truth, there is no evidence that this estrogen therapy does much to relieve osteoporosis at all. Yet, this remains the standard medical approach for osteoporosis.
Dr. John Lee suggests that osteoporosis in women as they age is due to decreasing levels of progesterone, NOT estrogen.
Jerilyn C. Prior, M.D., and her associates also found evidence of progesterone's possible role in countering osteoporosis in a study of sixty-six premenopausal women between twenty-one and forty-one years of age. All these women were long-distance marathon runners. It was observed after twelve months that:
The average spinal bone density decreased by about 2%... However, women who developed ovulation disturbances during the study lost 4.2% of their bone mass in one year. While there was no correlation between the rate of bone losses and serum levels of estrogen, there was a close relationship between indicators of progesterone status and bone loss.
The presence or absence of estrogen supplements had no discernible effect on osteoporosis benefits... Progesterone deficiency rather than estrogen deficiency is a major factor in the pathogenesis of menopausal osteoporosis. (Other factors promoting osteoporosis are excess protein intake, lack of exercise, cigarette smoking, and inadequate vitamins A, D, and C.)
Although there are many forms and ways to take natural progesterone, Dr. Lee promotes the transdermal method. By carefully observing his patients over the course of fifteen years, he proved the effectiveness of transdermal progesterone cream. His work confirmed its safety and its remarkable benefits to his osteoporotic patients who had a history of cancer of the uterus or breast and to those who had diabetes, vascular disorders, and other conditions.
Dr. Lee had hoped that the progesterone would strengthen his patients' bones. To his surprise, it did; their bone mineral density tests showed progressive improvement and the number of his patients suffering osteoporotic fracture dropped to zero.
Dr. Lee points out that the "conventional treatment of osteopososis with estrogen, with or without supplemnetal calcuim and vitamin D, tends to delay bone mass loss, but not reverse it." His investigation into using transdermal progesterone cream instead of a synthetic estrogen replacemnt treatment demonstrates that "osteoporosis subsided, musculoskeletal strength and mobility increased, and monthly vaginal bleeding did not occur." Most striking were the results of the dual-photon densitometry tests: "a 5-10% increase in bone mineral density; and this was even evident to the women who were 25 years after menopause."
After years of researching transdermal progesterone supplementation, Dr. Lee observed in his patients "a progressive increase in bone mineral density and definite clinical improvement including fracture prevention..." He concluded that "osteoporosis reversal is a clinical reality using a natural form of progesterone derived from yams that is safe, uncomplicated and inexpensive."
