What is Healthy Progesterone Cream?
For the last 30 years, Dr. John Lee has been advocating the use of
progesterone cream in menopausal and pre-menopausal women. Unfortunately, Dr.
Lee passed away, but his legacy and his knowledge are still alive. Our Healthy
Progesterone Cream is based on the original formula from Healthy Aging
Nutraceuticals, who have put Dr. Lee?s research to proper use.
Our luxurious progesterone cream contains real USP micronized progesterone ?
500 mg per ounce ? in a silky cream base. It is naturally unscented for
sensitive skin, and it?s completely free of parabens.
We also offer other progesterone supplements, such as Natural
Progesterone Gel and Natural
Progesterone Cream, two great Progesterone supplements.
What does Healthy Progesterone Cream do?
Women throughout the world are becoming better acquainted with the health
benefits of natural progesterone. Naturally derived progesterone reduces the
symptoms and discomfort of Menopause, PMS and Premenopause without the side
effects often associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Do not confuse natural progesterone with dangerous progestins hyped by the
pharmaceutical industry. We refer only to wholly natural progesterone exactly
like your body produces in abundant quantities during pregnancy.
Dr. John Lee's best selling book lists the following benefits of natural

What is Menopause?
Menopause is normally defined as the end of menstrual cycles. The unpleasant
symptoms of menopause that some women suffer, such as hot flashes, vaginal
dryness, and mood swings are peculiar to western industrialized societies.
Menopause is often associated with the end of a woman?s sexuality and the
beginning of old age, and arthritis, but it doesn?t have to be that way!
What does Progesterone have to do with Menopause?
A woman's ovaries make two hormones: estrogen and progesterone. When these
hormones are out of balance, hormone related illnesses can emerge. Due to
ovulatory cycles, progesterone levels typically decline before menopause
starts, which is in turn followed by a decline in estrogen. Progesterone
production tends to fall to almost zero while estrogen declines to about 40%
to 50%. This situation leads to an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone
causing an increase in estrogen activity, something now described as estrogen
What is Estrogen Dominance?
It is clear that estrogen, when unopposed or unbalanced by progesterone, is
not something to be desired. Stated differently, many of estrogen's
undesirable side effects are effectively prevented by progesterone. Dr. Lee
has named this syndrome Estrogen Dominance. This syndrome occurs mostly
in industrialized countries and commonly occurs in the following situations:
When women are on estrogen replacement therapy;
During premenopause, when early follicle depletion results in the lack of
ovulation and thus a lack of progesterone well before the onset of menopause;
Exposure to xenoestrogens, which is the cause of early follicle depletion.
Xenoestrogens are foreign substances found outside the body in the air, food,
and environment that have an estrogen-like effect on the body;
Taking birth control pills with an excessive estrogen component;
Women who have had a hysterectomy leading to dysfunction of the ovaries;
Post-menopause, especially in overweight women.
The following are some of the symptoms that can be caused or made worse by
Decreased sex drive
Acceleration of aging
Increased risk of strokes
Osteoporosis and Progesterone
Osteoporosis is an unnecessary but epidemic affliction that is perpetuated by
two myths. The first is that it is caused by calcium deficiency. This is not
true as women in Western industrialized countries who take in the most calcium
are the most afflicted. The second myth is that osteoporosis is due to low
estrogen levels and that taking horse estrogens will solve the problem.
Actually, bone loss in American women starts at age 40, when they have an
abundance of estrogen. In fact, osteoporosis occurs when progesterone levels
fall due to increasing anovulation.
Many women find that by supplementing their hormone production with natural
progesterone they will reduce many or most of their menopausal symptoms. The
presence of progesterone in the body sensitizes estrogen receptor sites thus
enabling estrogen to work more efficiently. Progesterone is a precursor to
other hormones in the body including estrogen, testosterone, and especially
Progesterone is one of two main hormones, the other being estrogen, made by
the ovaries of menstruating women. Progesterone is also made in smaller
amounts by the adrenal glands in both sexes and by the testes in males. 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 of
Every body is different. That?s why we recommend testing your hormone levels
to find out how much progesterone supplementation your body needs. We offer
home-testing kits for 2 Hormones, so
that you can feel safe in administering the correct amount of progesterone for
your specific needs. Additional hormones can be added to the test for an extra
fee payable directly to the testing lab.
Supplement Spot?s Healthy Progesterone Cream offers safe, gentle relief
from your Estrogen Dominance symptoms while moisturizing your skin with
natural oils. With our 30-day money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose
but your pain and discomfort!
What the Experts say about Natural Progesterone Creams
There are some great books on menopause written by physicians. Here are some
excerpts from prominent authors whose books are great resources for women
wanting to educate themselves about natural options for dealing with menopause.
"There are many approaches to cooling hot flashes...A progesterone skin cream
works in about 85% of perimenopausal women; The Wisdom of Menopause,
Christiane Northrup, MD , 2001, p 125
"...Since the postmenopausal woman continues to make estrogen in respectable
levels and makes little or no progesterone, hot flashes may well respond to
progesterone supplementation alone ? The vast majority of menopausal problems
can be avoided by good nutrition, avoidance of toxins, regular exercise and
the proper supplementation, when indicated for hormone balance, of real,
honest-to-God, natural progesterone." What Your Doctor May Not Tell
You About Menopause, John Lee, MD, 1996, pgs. 122 and 128
"Due to months or years of irregular ovulation in the perimenopausal years,
our production of progesterone is the initial hormone that declines, not
estrogen? This relative progesterone deficiency explains many of the
perimenopausal changes such as mood swings, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and
irregular menses. The goal of natural progesterone cream is to support the
waning daily production of progesterone in the body and accomplish physiologic
levels of progesterone." Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine,
Tori Hudson, ND, 1999, p. 165
"Imbalanced hormone levels contribute to so-called menstrual migraines during
perimenopause and menopause. This type of headache usually comes just before
your period, when both estrogen and progesterone levels can fall dramatically.
Hundreds of women have been able to completely recover from menstrual and
menopausal migraines through the use of progesterone cream. Apply ¼ - ½ tsp on
your skin daily for the two weeks prior to your period, or three weeks out of
every month if you're no longer having periods." The Wisdom of
Menopause, Christiane Northrup, MD , 2001, p 127
"In most cases the symptoms are eliminated. I have not encountered any
substance which is more effective than progesterone in relieving PMS." -
