Natural progesterone cream: Instructions
Progesterone is very well absorbed transdermally (through the skin) where it is stored in the fatty tissues for use as needed and unlike progesterone taken orally, it is not subject to being intercepted by the liver. For those women who are especially deficient in progesterone, it may take one to three months to restore optimal levels. For men with prostate disorders results may be felt within one or two days, but long term benefits may require six months.
In the morning and at bedtime, the cream should be gently massaged by the palms of the hands to areas of the body where one blushes: the face, neck, chest, upper arms and other areas of the body that may benefit from progesterone, e.g. breasts, abdomen, back of neck.
Serenity for Women is a Certified Potency Natural Progesterone Cream that contains not less than 1,450mg. of Natural Progesterone per (60 grams) 2.2 ounces. Informed women have chosen the following:
At What Age Does a Woman Need to Start Using Serenity Natural Progesterone Cream and for how long?
At Puberty progesterone and estrogen levels increase in preparation for pregnancy each month. So, if a woman is living in an industrialized country that makes liberal use of synthetic hormones in animal farming and is heavily dependent on petro-chemical use in most personal care products, her natural progesterone production may be signigicantly reduced. It has been demonstrated, by the use of saliva assay, that a female can normalize progesterone levels with a properly formulated natural progestetone cream that is free of petro-chemicals. Dr. John Lee would advise his female patients to "use progesterone cream until age 97, and then let's get together and re-evaluate..."
PMS & Infertility
Begin using crème 14 days from the first day of menstruation (normally the day after ovulation). Use approximately 1/8 teaspoon twice per day (morning and at bedtime). Stop using the cream on day 28. Women with more severe PMS or endometriosis have chosen to initially use twice the suggested amount of cream (1/4 teaspoon twice daily) for the first one or two months. Women who experience uterine cramping have chosen to apply the cream just above the pubic area at the onset of cramps. Women who experience hormone related headaches have applied he cream to the sides of the neck and just behind the earlobe, at the onset of headaches.
Menopause or Post Hysterectomy
The crème should be applied 25-26 days out of the month and then discontinued for 5-6 days each month (this "time-out" is not optional). Apply 1/8 teaspoon twice per day morning and at bedtime for all 25/26 days. Women who have severe menopausal symptoms have chosen to initially apply twice as much cream (1/4 teaspoon twice daily) for the first one or two months. In addition, women who are experiencing hot flashes have chosen to apply a small dab of the cream to the inside of the wrist at the onset of a hot flash. For those few women who still experience hot flashes, night sweats and/or vaginal dryness a natural phyto-estrogen cream can be used.
Informed women have applied the cream 25-26 days of the month and then discontinued for 5-6 days. 1/8 teaspoon twice per day morning and at bedtime for all 25/26 days has been the preferred choice.
Informed Men have used Serenity 1/16th of a teaspoon at bedtime, 24 days per month.
