Information About Natural Progesterone & Menopause

A woman’s ovaries make two hormones--estrogen and progesterone. During menopause, these hormones may become out of balance, and hormone-related illnesses will emerge.

1964 is the year in which estrogen replacement therapy entered the public consciousness. The January 13, 1964 issue of Newsweek carried a story entitled "No More Menopause" reporting on the work of a Dr. Wilson who was reported to have been studying menopause since the 1920’s. He had reached the conclusion that the 'change of life’ stemmed from the lack of estrogen and progesterone. This article was followed with articles and books about menopause, including a book by Dr. Wilson himself entitled Feminine Forever.

Ayerst, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, picked up on the opportunity to take advantage of women experiencing the unpleasant side effects of menopause, and popularized Premarin (PREgnant MARes urINe). Along with Dr. Wilson, they financed a major promotional campaign on the good news about estrogen for women in menopause. Dr. Wilson used adjectives bordering on the lurid to describe menopause as a time when women became dried up, cranky, sexless old hags and his "magic pill" was going to save them from that tragedy, keeping them "feminine forever." From this time forward, almost everyone researching or writing about menopause unquestioningly accepted Dr. Wilson’s information as fact when in fact, most of it was terribly wrong.

Dr. John Lee (a world authority on natural progesterone) and many other medical practitioners and researchers now believe that the present synthetic versions of hormones are making millions of women sick and putting them at risk for cancer, strokes, and heart disease. During menopause, a woman needs natural progesterone!

Menopause is blamed for a variety of problems including: uncontrollable hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, depression, vaginal dryness, osteoporosis, fibrocystic lumps, and other hormonally-related symptoms.

There is a great thirst for knowledge in this field. Women know full well that they are not being served properly when their doctors prescribe synthetic hormones such as Provera and Premarin for symptoms of menopause. They know that a hormone that is supposed to cure them should not also promote cancer. They know something is wrong when 650,000 or more hysterectomies are performed in the United States each year. They know that menopause is not a mistake of Mother Nature and women are becoming far more knowledgeable, intelligent, and intuitive than their doctors give them credit for.

Word of natural progesterone has spread and a revolution in health care is on the way. Medical research by Dr. Lee and others has demonstrated that progesterone may resolve the problems of menopause.

What will my Doctor say about Natural Progesterone? In the past, natural progesterone supplementation for menopause (or for any other reason) was not taught in medical school and most conventionally-trained doctors have little understanding about progesterone. Dr. Lee reports that when lecturing to doctors about his research on natural progesterone, while doctors are unable to dispute the results of his work, they were generally perplexed that this knowledge is missing from their own education and textbooks (and pharmaceutical advertising), on which they rely. Dr. Lee says that while the reception of medical doctors is warm, he describes their look of perplexity as "cognitive dissonance." In their minds, Dr. Lee reports, their file marked progesterone is filled with advertising about synthetic progestins (Provera etc.), which are not the same thing.

A revolution is now taking place in the medical world as more and more doctors realize that to stay in business they must get involved in ‘alternative medicine.’ Synthetic drugs aim to resolve the symptoms of maladies and sickness but rarely go to the cause of the problem. The fundamental objective of alternative medicine is to find the actual cause and fix it.

In March of 1997, Harvard trained Dr. Andrew Weil was nominated by Time Magazine as one of the 25 most influential people in America for his work in bringing respectability to alternative medicine. It is reported that more than 50% of Americans are now seeking alternative remedies to sickness (and symptoms of menopause) and as people turn to alternative remedies in droves, medical doctors are being forced to adopt alternative medicine techniques in their practices. Dr. Weil, a professor at the Tucson University Medical School, has introduced alternative medicine to the curriculum of medical doctors in training at the University of Arizona Medical School in Tucson and other medical schools are following suit.

Doctors favorably disposed towards natural progesterone for treating menopause are growing at a rapid rate despite resistance from conventional medicine. Traditionally conventional medicine aligns itself to drug companies. Drug company advertising in medical journals typically represents a significant source of a conventional doctor's continuing education.

How can I best test the level of my progesterone and other hormones? The newest and most accurate method of testing for progesterone, estradiol (estrogen), testosterone, DHEA and melatonin, is by using a saliva assay test.

What is progesterone and what is its relationship to estrogen? Progesterone is one of two main hormones, the other being estrogen, that is made by the ovaries of menstruating women. When a woman’s monthly cycle is functioning correctly, estrogen is the dominant hormone during the first two weeks of the menstrual cycle. In response to ovulation, progesterone assumes dominance for the final two weeks of the month. When the pituitary gland in the brain sends a message to the ovaries to stop production of progesterone, the menstrual cycle begins within 48 hours. If a pregnancy occurs, progesterone production continues and increases to very high levels (up to 400 mg. per day) as the fetus develops.

Progesterone is also made in smaller amounts by the adrenal glands in both sexes and by the testes in males. Progesterone is the precursor to estrogen, testosterone, and of all the important cortical hormones. Progesterone is made from the sterol pregnenolone, which is in turn made from cholesterol, which is made from acetate, a product of the breakdown of sugar and fat in the body. From progesterone are derived not only the other sex hormones, including estrogen, but also the corticosteroids which are essential for stress response, sugar and electrolyte balance and blood pressure. Progesterone is essential for survival and its deficiency can cause a wide range of problems.

Research by Dr. Lee has led him to describe the phenomena of excess estrogen as estrogen dominance. This condition, which is toxic to the body, is fundamental to the problems of menopause and leads to cancer and other very serious problems. In 1975, at a conference arranged by the Mayo Clinic, it was announced that estrogen replacement therapy by itself increased the risk of cancer by at least six to eight times. The Mayo Clinic formally announced that estrogen by itself (ERT) is toxic and is the only known cause of endometrial cancer. At this time the Mayo clinic announced that progesterone should be taken to counteract the basic effects of estrogen and thus was born Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). From this date on it was intended that this approach to balancing the hormones be adopted by doctors to replace ERT. While natural progesterone was available, drug companies seeking market protection through exclusive products and patents, promoted progestins such as Provera, etc. Synthetic progestins can be patented whereas natural progesterone is not patentable.

What are the functions of progesterone? In short, the three major functions of progesterone are:

1. Provides a wide range of intrinsic biologic effects
2. Promotes the survival and development of the embryo and fetus
3. Acts as a precursor to other steroid hormones

Progesterone is a central factor in the biosynthesis of other hormones, but its many functions in the body are far more extensive.

Why is progesterone cream superior to capsules or suppositories? Through the skin is a very efficient method of introducing natural progesterone into the body.

How much progesterone is in BETA YAM 900? Dr. John Lee, in his book, recommends progesterone creams that contain between 400 - 500 mg per oz. BETA YAM 900 contains 480 mg. of USP grade progesterone per ounce. Each 4-oz. container of BETA YAM 900 contains 480 mg per ounce of progesterone USP.

The level of progesterone in BETA YAM 900 is regularly confirmed by assay from the Californian independent laboratory, Aeron Lifecycles Laboratory.

Where should I apply BETA YAM 900? BETA YAM 900 can be applied to any part of the body. However, Dr. Lee suggests that for best results it should be applied to those parts of your body where you blush. Dr. Zava (Aeron Lifecycle Laboratory) reports rapid absorption when applied to the hands. It is very often recommended that it be applied to a different part of the body with each application and to parts where there is a minimum of fat such as behind the knees and on the chest.
