Today, estimates are that 10 to 20 percent of women have PCOS. It is probably even higher among young women, which could put PCOS in the league of epidemic. What Is PCOS? PCOS is the name given to multiple cysts on the ovaries. This can cause lack of ovulation (anovulation), menstrual abnormalities, facial hair, male pattern baldness, acne and often obesity. This is also because of higher than normal levels of androgens in the system. It is extremely common that women suffering from PCOS also suffer from insulin resistance or full blown diabetes and often low bone density. PCOS is triggered from a lack of ovulation. When ovulation does not occur, the ovaries stop their elevated production of both progesterone and oestrogen. The cycle is thrown out of it¶s normal functioning and any follicle that makes it to the outside of the ovary but does not ³pop´ an egg, subsequently turns into a cyst. The lack of progesterone is detected in the hypothalamus. Which continues to try and stimulate the ovary by increasing the GRH, which in turn increases the FSH and the LH. This stimulates the ovaries to produce more oestrogen and androgens, which stimulates more follicles toward ovulation. If these in addition are unable to produce progesterone or mature ovums, there becomes a build up of cysts forming and a lack of progesterone to balance out the menstrual cycle and support the rest of the body. Why Haven't Doctors Figured This Out? There are several reasons why doctors don't recognize the role of progesterone deficiency in PCOS. They may not be aware that the hypothalamus responds not only to the rise and fall of estrogen, but also to the rise and fall of progesterone. Since standard tests usually indicate that a woman with PCOS has plenty of estrogen, and she is still having periods, the doctor assumes she is still ovulating and producing plenty of progesterone. PCOS AND INSULIN RESISTANCE Excess insulin stimulates the ovaries to produce large amounts of the male hormone testosterone, which may prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg each month, thus causing infertility. High levels of insulin also increase the conversion of androgens (male hormones) to estrogens (female hormones), upsetting a delicate balance between
the two and having a direct effect on weight gain and the formation of cystic follicles or cysts in the ovary.
To reverse PCOS it is essential to stabalise the blood sugar level and move to a high organic, raw plant food diet and use a supplementation of natural progesterone cream for a minimum of 6 months. The role of Progesterone in the Body
Progesterone is one of the two most important female hormones. Like estradiol, it is responsible for a normal monthly cycle, and is also important for the health of bone, blood vessels, heart, brain, skin and many other tissues and organs. We are still discovering the full extent of this important hormone¶s functions. For example: even though progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum (which develops after ovulation) in its highest levels during the last half of the female cycle, levels are maintained in the first half of the cycle by the adrenal glands. In fact, progesterone is a precursor (building block) for most other hormones including DHEA, estradiol, testosterone and cortisol. Progesterone, plays an important role in mood, blood sugar balance, sex drive and thyroid function, as well as adrenal gland Health. Progesterone is made from the sterol pregnenolone, which is in turn made from cholesterol. Because of the role played by progesterone in so many hormones, a deficiency of progesterone can cause a wide range of problems. Although progesterone receptors are found mostly in reproductive organs, researchers have also found them in bone and in certain areas of the brain. ³Progesterone is one of the best friends serotonin ever had, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and an inhibitor of serotonin breakdown all in one´ (Chouinard et al., 1987) Progesterone has important functions in men as well. Though considered to be a hormone exclusively in women, progesterone is a precursor (building block) for most other hormones important for male health including testosterone, DHEA and cortisol. In men, progesterone plays an important role in adrenal gland health, as well as being an important consideration for the health of other hormones.

The role of Oestrogen in the Body
Oestrogen is actually an overall name for three different hormones: - estradiol, esterone and estriol. These hormones are essential in the reproductive cycle, specifically in ripening the ovum for ovulation and are also involved in the thickening of the endometrium and other aspects of regulating the menstrual cycle. They are involved in the development of female sexual features such as breast growth, the accumulation of body fat around the hips and thighs, and the growth spurt that occurs during puberty. Structural promote formation of female secondary sex characteristics decelerate height growth reduce muscle mass stimulate endometrial growth increase uterine growth maintenance of vessel and skin
protein synthesis increase hepatic production of binding proteins
coagulation increase platelet adhesiveness
Lipid increase HDL, triglyceride decrease LDL, fat deposition
rely on supplies of the hormone estrogen to grow: they are known as hormonesensitive or hormone-receptor-positive cancers. which is then converted to progesterone. As the oestrogen levels increase they trigger the development of the uterine lining. involves the ovarian follicle (now called the corpus luteum) to fill with cholesterol. This huge surge of progesterone simultaneously puts the uterine lining into its secretory or ripening phase and turns off further ovulation by either ovary. The ovaries produce the hormones oestrogen and progesterone. The cholesterol is the fuel needed to make the hormone pregnenolone. which stimulates the pituitary gland in the brain to release follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). These hormones direct an ovary to start making oestrogen (mostly estradiol). and stimulate the maturation of eggs in about 120 follicles. releasing the egg into the fallopian tube for its journey to the uterus. This surge causes the follicle to rupture. Suppression of production in the body of estrogen is a treatment for these cancers. when the monthly bleeding ends. What is Oestrogen Dominance? . The pituitary gland releases luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) which trigger a wave of activity in the ovaries. after ovulation happens. The progesterone raises in concentrations to 200 to 300 times higher than that of estradiol. the hypothalamus secretes gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). In the first half of the ovarian cycle. The second half of the cycle. If after 13-15 days the egg is not fertilized. At mid cycle the pituitary gland releases luteinising hormone (LH). SHBG Gastrointestinal tract reduce bowel motility increase cholesterol in bile Role in cancer About 80% of breast cancers. once established. To do this the hormones involved in this production need to be at the correct levels to work together. THE OVARIES The female gonads (ovaries) have to job of producing and releasing a mature egg approximately every 28 days. the uterine lining is released for menstruation when both oestrogen and progesterone levels drop. Fluid balance salt (sodium) and water retention Hormones increase growth hormone increase cortisol.
. or normal oestrogen levels with very low progesterone. cumulative. worsening stressful conditions that give rise to further anovulatory cycles and so continues the vicious cycle into horrific hormone imbalances. With the extent of xenooestrogens in our environment these imbalances are occuring more frequently than ever before and at younger generations than ever before. It doesn¶t matter if the oestrogen is too low. Without ovulation. The consequent lack of progesterone interferes with the production of other essential steroid hormones. Our body is fooled into thinking it is real estrogen and acts as if there is an estrogen excess in the system creating major hormone havoc. and accumulate in the fat tissue of animals and humans. fibroids. They are far stronger acting in the body. no corpus luteum results and no progesterone is made. The Main Symptoms of Oestrogen Dominance are: Anxiety and panic attacks Breast tenderness/ Fibrocystic breasts Cancer of breasts/ uterus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Cravings/ Eating disorders . including teenagers. by directly interfering with the normal function of our endocrine system.g.Oestrogen dominance is a term for a condition where women have very high oestrogen levels with not enough progesterone to bring the oestrogen back into balance. reproductive cancers and much more. Xeno-Oestrogens are chemicals present in our environment that mimic oestrogen in the body. synthetic steroidal hormone is believed to have dire consequences within our bodies. Research has shown that from 35 women will occasionally not ovulate during their menstrual month. a woman will still have oestrogen dominant symptoms if the progesterone is lower than the balance that is needed with oestrogen. These estrogen-mimics are highly fat-soluble. PCOS. around 15 times the potency of natural oestrogens. Stress combined with a bad diet can induce cycles where ovulation does not occur. This is the beginning of a vicious cycle into various possible low progesterone imbalances e. endometriosis. A second major problem results from the interrelationship between progesterone loss and stress. Stress creates high cortisols which block progesterone receptors. not biodegradable or well excreted.

you do not have to break the bank to find a good cream! Most body products for babies are made from petrochemicals. If one has a balance diet there should be little need for a lot of body products as the skin should maintain itself quite well. you are putting the same substance on your body. as petrochemicals leave a film on your skin. They also make your skin dry from leeching it of vital nutrients. There have been reports of 4 year old baby girls growing breasts in Brazil (high pollution area) and according to Dr Mercola. The only reason petrochemicals are used in body products. When they are used the babies are receiving extremely high doses of xeno-oestrogens. is because of their incredibly low cost. the average age of American girls starting menstruation has dropped to 9 years old (that is very much a child!) from the saturation of oestrogens in their systems!. There are many amazing creams out there made from 100% natural plant extracts. instead of feeding it and sealing your sebaceous glands. Obviously it is good to have a bit of protection from the pollution in our air and water.Petrochemicals Body Products Clear your cupboards of anything containing: Aqueous Cream / Petroleum Jelly / Liquid Paraffin / Mineral Oil If you use any products that contain petrochemicals. This creates a reliance on the cream and the need to apply it regularly just so one does not feel the dryness from the leeched nutrients. The gel in sanitary pads and nappies is also made with petrochemicals! Plastics . as there are no perfume chemicals in them. This does not mean they are good for you in anyway! This is easy enough to prove to ones self. as the oil that you use in your car. They are often promoted as safe for hypo-allergenic skin types.
So: do not microwave (at all) in plastic. has estimated that few than 10% of them have been tested to the point where their ability to cause cancer or reproductive disorders is understood. Yet very little is known or understood about the impact they have on human health.Xeno-oestrogens are in plastics. infertility.000 new ones are proposed for manufacture each year. do not use polystyrene or clingwrap. DDE and PCB¶s.E. Pesticides.000 chemicals have come into commercial use worldwide. Many Doctors believe that anovulatory cycles have hit an epidemic in industrialized countries.T. These chemicals have a profound effect on our bodies and those of other animals. many of which accumulate and build up in our bodies over the years. They slowly accumulate. almost nothing is known about the combined impact on our bodies. . early puberty. seeping into our water supplies and flooding our atmosphere and oceans. especially when it is warm and has a fat content. Since world war 2. The worst culprits are DDT. the xeno-oestrogens are absorbed into the food. In fact. P.

are pumped full of antibiotics to stop them getting infections and synthetic oestrogen to fatten them up. South Africa has been commonly using hormones in the animal products for decades. or free-range. Just washing the vegetables is not going to do a lot of good as the plants absorb the chemicals through the soil. This is also perfect proof that high oestrogen levels can cause weight gain! There has been increased public concern shown over the safety of South African meat and animal products that contain hormones. by cooking the meat. there are finally some good ones coming on the market. dairy and red meat If you eat meat or dairy. This also goes for all your diary products. Poultry.The solution is to: Buy organic or pesticide free food. Use chemical free cleaning products. or eliminate them from your diet completely. be aware that animals that are not organic. eggs or heating the dairy. This has been more evident since the use of hormones in meat products has been completely banned in the EU. Difficult farming conditions has spurred farmers in the use of all possible methods to maximize the efficiency of our agricultural industry. The Pill and HRT . The EU has also stopped the import of any US beef or dairy for this reason. And swim in chlorine-free pools. Synthetic hormones cannot be killed. The solution is only buy organic or hormone free meat and dairy products. as they are not needed by the human body at all.
It¶s popularity is certainly not because of effectiveness. or oppose estrogen in menopause report headaches. These are all triggered from some influence that causes the progesterone levels to drop. This is imperative if you ever want a healthy pregnancy. The Pill leaches many of the vital nutrients out of the body. This synthetic hormone actually lowers a patient's blood level of natural progesterone.The Contraceptive Pill ± Are you a follower or do you think for yourself? It is a myth that the Pill is a safe. More and more children are being born with thyroid. Do we honestly believe that there was not an answer to contraception and other issues before pharmaceutical companies came along? Why did every family not have 20 or more children? Synthetic hormones are big money. Granted it does have the ability to stop ovulation under very strict conditions. maraina or synthetic hormone fertility treatment. it is important to bring your nutrient and natural progesterone levels back into balance. It is also well-known that 19-nor-testosterone progestins bind to estradiol receptors and thus have the potential to stimulate breast and endometrial cancer. problem free form of contraception. PCOS. The chemical structure of medroxyprogesterone or progestin as it is commonly known. but not many women follow these rules. If you were ever on the pill. Many women suffer from imbalances such as endometriosis. in fact it is certainly not half as effective as we are lead to believe. would it not make sense to have excellent marketing campaigns convincing everyone that this was the best product ever. as well as many other side-effects. endometriosis and various other imbalances. has a different molecular structure to the natural progesterone that is produced in your own body. So why would it then be logical to put more synthetic hormones into the body. exhaustion and fluid retention. depression. when they create a further drop in natural progesterone? Some women who take medroxyprogesterone to combat PMS. Have you ever heard the term ³false security´. There are other far safer options out there if you value your health. mood swings. fibroids and various other reproductive disorders. Other factors found in research show that women using the contraceptive pill have a higher risk of: Blood clots which can be fatal Diabetes Ovarian/ Uterine/ cervical Cancer HPV . injection. If you had the opportunity to make a lot of money off a product. due to the state of the mothers health during pregnancy.
antifungals. antiHIV drugs. .Is it worth the risk? Synthetic HRT (hormone replacement therapy) may not treat your symptoms of menopause SAFELY! Synthetic hormones are different from natural hormones. cervical dysplasia (a possible precursor to cancer). and epilepsy drugs. It has been proven time and time again that birth control pills deplete: Vitamin A \Vitamin B¶s and folic acid / Vit C / Vitamin K /Magnesium / Selenium / Zinc / Iron /Copper /Manganese /Amino Acids especially Tyrosine For instance. stroke or blockage of blood supply to the lungs. Lupus High Blood Pressure Increases Candida levels Infertility PCOS. The following drugs can make birth control pills less effective. drinking an recreational drugs have a noted effect on diminishing and sometimes cancelling out the effects of the contraceptive pill. a deficiency of the B vitamin folic acid can cause birth defects. The UK Family Planning Association have been conducting a nation wide campaign warning users of the Pill of this fact. Studies in the UK have shown that users of the Pill are twice as likely to experience a fatal blood clot than non users. Drugs can interfere with the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill. Synthetic hormone replacement therapy RISKS MAY EXCEED THE BENEFITS! Many of the side effects of HRT are the same as those of the contraceptive pill. increasing the risk of an unwanted pregnancy and the risk of birth defects: antibiotics rifampin for TB. studies reporting that oral contraceptives depleted a variety of nutrients began appearing in the scientific literature. anemia. HRT . The contraceptive pill has been known to lead to fatal blood clots that manifest as a heart attack. and cardiovascular disease. The pill causes vitamin deficiency Back in the mid-1970s. they are structurally changed so they can be patented. Smoking. Endometriosis and other reproductive disorders Obesity Coronary heart disease Accentuating Asthma. Epilepsy and Migraines Common side effects that encourage discotinuation of the contraceptive pill are: Dizziness and nose bleeds / Vaginal bleeding / Visual problems / Blood in urine / Fainting / Migraines / Nausea / Vomiting / Breast tenderness / Weight changes / Loss of libido / Depression / Changes in skin colour / Loss of periods / Irregular bleeding.
cancer and strokes. and given anti-depressants such as Prozac or anti-anxiety drugs such as Xanax.Much of the information recently appearing in public makes the point that HRT isn't as safe or as healthy as many people thought it was. This study was to last 8 years. women had a 66% higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who did not get HRT. Begun in 1996. complained to their doctors about side effects such as weight gain. only to find out that it can be deadly and wasn¶t even effective anyway (except for controlling hot flashes and night sweats). What is a hormone imbalance? A hormone imbalance is a disruption in the chemical balance in the endocrine or reproductive system. The Women's Health Initiative. Conventional medicine. It¶s likely that American doctors as a group are feeling somewhat chagrined that they¶ve been handing out HRT like candy. anxiety and insomnia. And women had a 22% higher risk of dying from breast cancer than those women who did NOT receive HRT. but was stopped prematurely in July 2002 after only 5 years! Why? Because the women in the study on HRT had health risks that exceeded the benefits! And after just 5 years! The study found that women on hormone replacement therapy of combined estrogen plus progestin (PREMPRO) had: A A A A A A 41% INCREASE in strokes 29% INCREASE in heart attacks 100% INCREASE in the rate of blood clots 22% INCREASE in total cardio vascular disease 24% INCREASE in breast cancer 100% INCREASE in the rate of Alzheimer's Disease (in women over 65) The Women's Health Initiative also concluded in 2003 that there were NO CLEAR BENEFITS on "Quality of Life" measures for those taking the combined estrogen plus progestin HRT! A woman's body has trouble assimilating synthetic hormones effectively and the side effects that result are often much worse than the original problems being treated. strokes and blood clots. bone fractures. Here are examples you may want to read for yourself. endometrial cancer. sponsored by the National Institute of Health.´ allowed millions of women to be given HRT without evidence that it was safe or effective. The same type of mistreatment has occurred with millions of women over the past two decades who have been put on conventional HRT. coronary heart disease. Little did they know they were also being given heart disease. which trumpets that it is ³evidence-based. Symptoms of a hormone balance: Low energy / fatigue . been told it¶s all in their heads. Tens of thousands of women have been killed or permanently harmed by taking HRT. These results were as of 2002 when the study was stopped. examined the relationship between traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer.

If we understand the basic functions of our bodies and have the simple tools to create a physical balance. balancing out and prioritizing each smell. It is considered normal. Have you ever tried to discern all the different sounds in a shopping centre? It¶s exhausting just being in a busy place. chemicals. Our bodies have to deal with more sensory overload than we have ever experienced before in history. The body has to buffer and discern every experience that we have in each moment. toxic foods. emotion and thought. and proteins. and changes in the balance of fluid and minerals in blood. sight.

That is an incredible amount of a lot of work to do in each moment.crying spells phobias Hormones are made from the essential fatty acids. What does Stress have to do with Hormones? In this day and age most of us deal with high stress lifestyles. It doesn¶t matter whether mental stress or physical stress comes first. amino acids and essential fatty acids. . The major factors that influence hormones are stress. the fact is both need to be alleviated. physical sensation. sound. the demands are getting higher and each year we are overloaded with more ³things´ to use and be responsible for. they are caused from the mother¶s state of health. while one is in-utero. just the noise pollution alone is overwhelming. like the chicken or the egg story.
Parasympathetic is when the body is in a relaxed state. .Cortisols reduce production of IgA.

These fatty acids are not made by the body's cells and are un-natural. Is it worth it? 3) Food Toxicity If you have a high content of any of the following foods. What are the 8 biggest food toxins? Trans fats ± Hydrogenated oils and fried foods . This causes chronic degeneration. the modern diet is typically low in fibre. Unfortunately. As you can see high stress directly triggers and imbalance of the reproductive hormones. a by-product of this process is trans-fatty acids.This is a chemical process by which hydrogens are added to unsaturated fats or polyunsaturated fats in order to make them solid at room temperature and improve their "shelf life. Your body is unable to absorb the proper nutrients or regenerate in a stressed state! Your system is designed to deal with short bursts of adrenal output only. your body begins to degenerate and your quality of life continuously depletes. If you want to live your life faster.High cortisols can also lead to high androgens creating facial hair growth and upper body weight gain. They are . . in a disconnected state of numbness." However.. By the time you retire. In fact a diet filled with sugar and trans-fats alone is enough to create a hormone imbalance as well as potential diabetes type 2. you may not have anything left in your body to enjoy life with.

There are no health benefits and many health costs to these hydrogenated fats. Dairy ± Most dairy is from cows that are firstly kept in horrific conditions. It contains gluten which is intestinal glue. e. Secondly they are pumped full of synthetic hormones to fatten them up and antibiotics to prevent them from getting sick from their low grade living facilities. The amount of animal products that is consumed by the average person enables humans to build up a fair amount of the synthetic chemical gifts in their bodies. It causes your body to store fat and creates an imbalance in your minerals. it catches other food that goes past which can stick there for up to 30 years and slowly rots and ferments. Sugar is the last thing that anyone should be eating.Decreased ability to produce breast milk .Immune system depression .g.

Since all the cells of the body. needs a certain level of glucose to function ² not too much. and not too little. it is transported through your blood to feed your body. especially the brain cells. The pancreas then over secretes insulin in response to this and the blood glucose level drops too low. use glucose for fuel.Blood Sugar Instability What Is Hypoglycemia? Glucose is the fuel that most foods break down into. Hypoglycemia occurs when a person's blood glucose levels spike they become dangerously high from consuming refined sugars or carbohydrates. Your body. a blood glucose level that is too low starves the cells of needed fuel. particularly your brain and nervous system. If your blood glucose level isn't right. Some of the symptoms of hypoglycemia are: a craving for sweets fatigue insomnia mental confusion nervousness mood swings faintness headaches depression phobias heart palpitations . your body will react by showing certain symptoms. causing both physical and emotional symptoms.
First. It helps the body to utilize blood sugar. The average healthy person has some 20. The most common symptoms of hyperglycemia include repeated urination. Insulin Resistance vastly reduces the number of insulin receptor sites or doorways on the walls of your cells. stress.000 receptor sites per cell. or a drop in weight. low energy. Glucose is the fuel for the cells. Hyperglycemia can lead to diabetes. it will shut down lower priority functions to conserve energy. Then it will use fat as an energy source. Some circumstances exacerbate hyperglycemia. If left untreated or undiagnosed. The body isn't designed to break down fat rapidly. and dizziness. Secondary symptoms might be dry mouth and skin due to dehydration. they poison the body and will cause an acute coma or death. rampant hyperglycemia will lead to a condition called ketoacidosis.000. or glucose. and surgery. so waste chemicals called ketones build up. rather than glucose. no exercise. . When a critical amount of ketones are present in the blood. Insulin resistance is an imbalance whereby the insulin secreted by the pancreas is not able to unlock the cells. Eventually. resulting in blurred vision. such as a diet rich in sugars. hunger even after eating. It is either used immediately or stored in the form on glycogen in the liver or muscle cells. What is insulin resistance? Insulin is the hormone that is produced by your pancreas. and increased thirst. in the bloodstream. while insulin resistant people can have as few as 5. confused thinking. Insulin acts like a key that opens the cells for the glucose to move inside. illness. the body urgently needs energy.cold hands and feet forgetfulness dizziness blurred vision inner trembling outbursts of temper sudden hunger allergies crying spells What Is Hyperglycemia? Hyperglycemia is a symptom in which there are elevated levels of blood sugar.
which may prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg each month. causing elevated levels of blood sugar. The excess insulin is rejected and is left to float freely in the bloodstream. PCOS AND INSULIN RESISTANCE Excess insulin stimulates the ovaries to produce large amounts of the male hormone testosterone. If you have too few receptor sites. The flip side of the coin is that if cells that have been depleted of glycogen by eating refined foods. instead of passing through the insulin door to be burned as energy. Insulin is also essential for stimulating or maintaining the protein synthesis of many cells. Once there. the sugar is converted into fat and stored via the blood stream throughout the body.Insulin Resistance happens from long term hypoglycemia. or if it has been inactive for a long time. the insulin receptors return to the surface rapidly. not eating enough nutrient rich foods. glucose bounces off the cell wall. . not eating regularly. crash dieting. which are sent to the liver. causing the pancreas to overproduce insulin. This emphasizes the importance of taking a walk or some form of gentle exercise every week. The cells are overwhelmed by the excess of insulin and consequently reduce the number of active insulin receptors. This leaves too few sites for insulin to carry out its normal function of unlocking the cell for the glucose to pass inside and be converted into energy. over exercising or anything else along these lines. thus causing infertility. upsetting a delicate balance between the two and having a direct effect on weight gain and the formation of cystic follicles or cysts in the ovary. creating unbalanced hormone levels. glucose remains in the blood stream. making the cells hypersensitive to insulin in the blood. as well as eating healthy nutritious food. High levels of insulin also increase the conversion of androgens (male hormones) to estrogens (female hormones). With the cell door almost closed to it. This process can lead to weight gain and obesity. The cells which store glycogen (mainly muscle cells) or fat (adipose fat cells) have the ability to withdraw their insulin receptors from the surface when the cell of full of glycogen or fat. as well as stimulating cells to take up glucose for storage as glycogen or fat. key factors in creating PCOS. This is called µdown regulation¶ of the insulin receptors.
Therefore rather buy a whole chicken. Each one has a different role. therefore they do not make you tired as they use a fraction of the energy for digestion that animal based proteins do. If you do eat them please avoid red meat. Other beneficial estrogen modulators are omega 3 fatty acids (N-3). . you only get around 5 different amino acids. there is nothing beneficial in it. the "good guys" are estrogen inhibiting compounds in plants (flavonoids and indoles). loaded with overwhelming amounts of estrogenic chemicals. Therefore it is important to eat a variety of protein sources everyday and preferably as many high grade proteins as possible. When it comes to white meat and fish. free-range or organic only. Recent studies reveal that some of these compounds have the capacity to affect estrogen metabolism. It is always best to buy food that looks most like it did in its original form. The key with amino acids is that you need to get all 22 of them into your body. The high grade plant based proteins are much easier for your body to absorb. found in plant sources such as hempseeds. onion and garlic. bee products. are known to possess antioxidant and anticancerous properties. Some amino acids build the muscle. that is supposed to be food. In low grade protein food. They are your main source of energy for your body. bone and connective tissue. both anti-estrogenic and pro-estrogenic substances play important roles in supporting our metabolic system.Oestrogen Inhibitors Certain compounds in plants. In an ideal world. called flavonoids and indoles. citrus fruits. working as estrogen inhibitors. than the crumbed circle of something in a box. Others are involved in the essential workings of your brain and your glands that create important hormones. buy fresh. it makes sense to regard estrogen promoters as "bad guys" and estrogen inhibitors as "good guys". What is needed to make Progesterone in the body? Essential Fatty Acids and Amino Acids Protein/ Amino Acids Protein is made up of chains of amino acids. chamomile. Since we live in an "over-estrogenic world". Found in passiflora. In a nut shell. I¶m not saying become a vegetarian. just know that meat and dairy are not high grade. easily absorbable protein.
superfoods save the day! Like little superhero¶s they provide more live easily absorbable nutrients. In a time when we are reverting to low grade supplements to attempt to make up for the lack of nutrients in our common low grade food.Here are some of the best plant protein sources. no matter what´ have found« Superfoods! So what are superfoods? They are various plants from around the world that have been found to have the highest content of essential nutrients. the latest researchers that trust in ³nature providing. Spiralina / Chlorella / Goji Berries / Bee Pollen / Hemp Seeds . These nutrients are in balanced quantities making them complete whole foods. The following are the best protein superfoods. Sprouts Avocado¶s Olives Nuts Seeds Quinoa Wheatgrass What are the best protein sources? Even though we are being bombarded on a daily basis by hormone disruptors. The body absorbs the nutrients from these plants easier than most foods. energy and healing abilities than any supplement ever could.
Essential Fatty Acids . The best sources of Essential Fats are: Food Sources Omega 3 Omega 6 Omega 9 Organic Hemp oil &seeds x x x Coldpressed Avocado oil & Avocado's x x Coldpressed Sesame oil & seeds x x Pumpkin seeds x .The Good Fats! There are two very important polarities when it comes to types of fat. The good fats are essential fatty acids (EFA¶s). 6 and 9. All of which are essential to your health. Essential fatty acids are made up of Omega 3. the toxic fats are trans fats. heated fats and processed fats.

Coconuts have been one of the major factors of islanders diets far back through history. Since the good fats help get rid of the toxic fats. It has been clinically shown that this unique oil to has amazing and strong anti-viral. fertility and the immune system Take your bad fats to the liver to be broken down and leave the body Therefore your body has a big problem if you are not getting enough of the right oils into your diet.Borage / starflower oil x Evening primrose oil x The job of essential fatty acids is: To create a healthy. blood pressure. anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. which regulates the heart rate. then fats can make you slim! Coconut Oil ± Why is it so special? As you can see it is not in the chart above. sealed cell membrane on every cell of the body They make up a major part of the brain and nervous system They are essential in the production of all the hormones in the body To create prostaglandin. This is because the important factor with Coconut oil is not what it¶s omega content is. blood clotting. Coconut oil is one of the superfoods. .
but goes solid in the fridge. so the herb itself is not a hormone Chaste berry does not contain hormones . Additional testing showed more than just relief from PMS. Coconut oils medium-chain fatty acids do not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats. The ability of chaste tree berry to raise progesterone levels in the body is an indirect effect. in favor of progesterone. while as many as one-half of the participants reported marked improvement. Coconut oil is a major tool for balancing the thyroid and the reproductive system. The combined results from three extensive studies performed in Germany found that chaste tree berry completely relieved premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms for nearly one-third of the 4. This helps to increase the production of progesterone . but are sent directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into energy. this will provide enough lauric acid to really build the immune system. Make sure you buy untreated.its benefits stem from its actions upon the pituitary gland. Chaste Berry Chaste tree berry acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) production and mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). raw virgin coconut oil. reproductive and adrenal hormones. These weight-loss effects of coconut oil have clearly been demonstrated by many researchers. The result is a shift in the ratio of estrogen to progesterone. just like carbohydrates.thus helping to regulate the menstrual cycle. It also speeds up the body's metabolism and actually burns high calories.The medium-chain fats in coconut oil are similar to fats in mother's milk and have similar effects. It is a brilliant fuel for making pregnenolone.500 participants. Coconut oil melts at room temperature. unprocessed. The other amazing thing about this fact is that the body uses the fat in coconut oil to promote weight loss. the precursor hormone for your mental. which produces energy. If one can eat up to 3 to 4 tablespoons a day. Symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle which can be treated with this plant include: cramps flooding .
Minimize fibrocystic breast symptoms. Because it is natural it would die if it came in contact with ones stomach acid. This means that the molecular structure of the natural progesterone is 100% identical to that of the natural progesterone that is produced in your body. falls under the heading of a bio-identical hormone. Treat menopausal difficulties. When we are in a time of chemical overwhelm. it is a good idea to pull out the hardcore ammunition.. free from any toxic sideeffects. . Relieve the pain of endometriosis. Natural Progesterone Organic Cream ± How does it work? Natural progesterone cream. one of the best of which is««««. Traditional uses headaches depression water retention constipation acne breast tenderness irritability Reduce PMS symptoms. Natural progesterone cream is put onto the skin and absorbs into the tissue to be stored with your own progesterone. Control menstrual-related acne. the body can use it whenever and wherever needed. Therefore your body immediately recognizes it and can use it where needed throughout your body. With it being put directly into the normal progesterone storage place. Regulate ovulation and promote fertility. unlike synthetic hormones.
I believe that natural progesterone organic cream.g. What are the Benefits of Using Natural Progesterone Cream? Re-establishing balance of oestrogen and progesterone Reversal of reproductive disorders ± PMS/ Perimenopause symptoms/ Menopause symptoms / PCOS / Infertility. is a great tool that should really only be needed to assist in clearing out synthetic chemicals from ones body and reversing the effects of oestrogen dominance. e. if one lives in a high pollution area and cannot move. oestrogen. Obviously there are situations that call for unlimited use. aldosterone and cortisol when the body needs Prevents inappropriate blood clotting Balances zinc and copper in the body Heals the harmful effects of too much oestrogen Acts as anti-oxidant in relation to the oxidant effects of high cortisols Maintains propper oxygen levels in all cells . etc Assisting in weight loss Improves mental alertness Improves memory Enhances thyroid balance Releives sleep disorders Stabalizes mood Relieves depression Prevents post-natal depression Assists in healthy full-term pregnancy Improves blood sugar levels Clearing water retention Assisting thyroid balance Assisting adrenal balance Assists in candida control Makes DHEA.
And being a fat-soluable hormone. a roller coaster of symptoms that can be quite frightening and debilitating unless they understand the reasons. women can actually go through an estrogen dominance wake-up crisis. understanding when your stores are depleted. reduction or elimination of headaches. more restorative sleep pattern that draws comments like. During these different stages that occur along the journey. considerable amounts will find its way to fat cells. double doses are well tolerated because the body is busy soaking up the hormone it has probably been deprived of for years. 1-8 Weeks . whilst the body will get some benefits from progesterone. when in actual fact it can represent the opposite. On the other side of the coin. You may find you will shift body fluid as a result because progesterone acts as a natural diuretic. From observation.Stabilising & Settling . To comfortably maintain balance. as a consequence of bringing progesterone back into the body. it¶s really a case of learning to read your body. ³best night¶s sleep I¶ve had in years!´. and the internal/external demands. 6-8 weeks. e. For a smaller number of women. we have found the immediate benefits which generally occur within the first 10 days of usage range from instant calming. a further change around 12 months. Breast tenderness. you may misinterpret the signs as progesterone losing its effect. And we believe this is due to a sluggish receptor response. another at 7 months. If you are not aware of these stages. based on the individual and her specific condition. and finally another roughly at 18 months. and comprehending how your body uses progesterone in relation to things that are happening in your life. and many women comment that their face glows and looks healthy. clearer thinking. and how to overcome these problems. These changes occur for the majority of women (we have observed) in the first 10 days. 4 months . slight adjustments are often required to maximize progesterone¶s effectiveness. Our observation is that around 6-8 weeks the body reaches a saturation level at which point dosage can require adjustment (gradual reduction) depending on the individual and her symptoms. Assists in reversing inflammation. feeling more grounded. estrogen dominance crisis may occur weeks to months down the track.g.Reaching Saturation During this period. and other symptoms may reduce dramatically. arthritis Activates p53 to prevent and reverse cancer Stages of Natural Progesterone¶s Action In The Body First 10 days . then there is a change at 4 months.Oestrogen Dominance Wake-up Crisis Progesterone seems to work at various stages and at various levels. an awareness that you are able to cope with stress better. a deeper.
like any of the steroid hormones. natural-to-the-body progesterone is manufactured from diosgenin in a laboratory with the aid of an enzyme. It can. fibrocystic breasts diminished. But the greater results are evident around the fourth month or fourth period where women actually feel the deeper benefits of treating long standing. It is common for women to feel that they need more progesterone. can also be utilized by the body as a precursor to manufacture other steroid hormones. manageable. once introduced into the body. At this point. Progesterone. Often women are not consciously feeling the benefits of progesterone because levels have been restored and homeostasis has been achieved. Of equal importance is the fact bio-identical progesterone. be introduced into the body with a relative margin of safety as progesterone replacement therapy with minimal side effects because the body recognizes it. soya beans and other plants from the tuber family to extract plant sterols (oils & fats) that make USP progesterone in the laboratory. It is referred to as natural because the end result represents the same bio-identical molecule chemically identical to progesterone made by our ovaries. for the first time.It appears a four month period/cycle is required before the body really falls into synchronization.into United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade progesterone. hormone-related conditions. hence these wild yam extract creams cannot do the work of progesterone. We know that wild yam creams containing diosgenin appear to have a µestrogenic¶ effect on the body. therefore. is well under control. On the other hand. ovulation is often re-established. Up until now progesterone has performed numerous jobs that result in many benefits throughout the body.diosgenin . And the body sees as µnatural¶ that which has the same molecular configuration. because the wonderful feelings of before have worn off. and migraines become. What is the difference between natural progesterone USP and normal wild yam cream? Progesterone creams are referred to as µNatural Progesterone¶ because the hormone is found in the body. periods are showing signs of regulating. The active ingredient of wild yam. Since the 1940¶s scientists have been using wild yams. . bio-identical. many women fall into the trap of believing they no longer need progesterone supplementation and/or adopt a careless approach to their dosage and usage. diosgenin is not bio-identical to the progesterone molecule found in the body. the body appears to have well and truly settled and is very relaxed. It is possible for many women that there will come a day that it is no longer necessary. but until then one must be regular with the dosage to create a hormone balance. Women report they are no longer clotting or bleeding as heavily. As long as the symptoms of low progesterone are gone. and only when it is absent do we realize it¶s not providing the balance which we often take for granted. the pain and trauma associated with endometriosis is dramatically reduced. works its magic silently in the body. there is no need for a higher dosage. The progesterone that goes into a tube or jar of cream has undergone a process in a laboratory whereby it is converted from one substance . As stated above.
In contrast to some of the progestogens such as medroxyprogesterone acetate. recognized medical literature. particularly the progestins. (or any unpatentable medicine or treatment technique). it¶s probably doesn¶t contain any progesterone. This is to be distinguished from synthetic progesterone-like chemicals called progestogens which bind to the body's progesterone receptors and function for the most part. have dried up and been blown away by the contemporary trade winds of synthetic drugs. Thus micronized progesterone is now sometimes being used for menopausal hormone replacement therapy instead of progestogens. The bottom line today is simply this: If you cannot see the words µProgesterone USPµ or µProgesterone BPµ on your cream¶s list of ingredients. Recently. natural progesterone does not seem to suppress good cholesterol (HDL). medical research has become much more expensive and the grants subsidizing progesterone research. whereas progesterone itself was not orally absorbed. Since the early 1970's. just like progesterone. They promote oestrogen in the body. however. however. Birth control pills still have progestogens as the active progesterone-like component. has no effect on blood pressure or mood. not progesterone. Actually the progesterone is now synthetically made but it behaves as best we know. and shows less of a tendency to cause increased male-hormone-like effects such as facial hair growth. What is the difference between progesterone and progestogens (synthetic progesterones)? Progesterone has the identical chemical structure to the substance made in a woman's body by the ovarian corpus luteum (gland formed after an egg is ovulated each month). Each synthetic progestogen may have a somewhat different sideeffect profile so it is not easy to generalize. just like the body's natural progesterone once it is absorbed into the blood stream. it has been found that micronization of progesterone (making very tiny crystals of the progesterone) enhances absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Why has progesterone not been well promoted? Ample medical research regarding progesterone was carried on in the 1940's through the 1960's. Progestogens were originally developed because they were capable of being absorbed into the blood when ingested in pill form. they sometimes have side effects or actions that are different than progesterone. and amply reported in mainline. . Because they are chemically different than natural progesterone.The same goes for phyoestrogen creams made from soya. And progesterone creams that contain less than 800 milligrams per 2 oz jar will not be effective if you are truly progesterone deficient.
