After menopause, Progesterone
decreases by over 99% from its original youthful baseline levels;
while estrogen production only decreases by about 40%.
This drastic drop in progesterone leads to an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone
causing an increase in estrogen activity. Dr.
Lee has named this syndrome "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.
Progesterone has a balancing or mitigating effect on estrogen.
According to Dr. John Lee, "there are very few Western women truly deficient in estrogen; most become deficient in progesterone."
In fact, in the west, the prevalence of estrogen dominance syndrome approaches 50 percent in women over 35 years old.
This problem has been accelerated in modern times do to the use of plastic and other petrochemicals that become estrogen mimics or "xeno-estrogens"in our body.
New research is showing that almost all the uncomfortable symptoms of PMS and of Menopause are actually caused by low progesterone levels in the body.

What about Synthetic Progesterone - do you want it?
Unfortunately, most doctors are still prescribing synthetic progesterone (commonly
known as progestins, such as Provera): these synthetic progestins
are not progesterone at all, and are totaly un-natural to your body and can cause serious
Synthetic progestins are completely different from natural progesterone. There are no known side effects for natural progesterone.
In fact during pregnancy natural progesterone levels are almost 400 times normal. Progesterone is good for you and is necessary for the survival and development of the fetus.
Chemically altered Progestins on the other hand carries warning that it's use during early pregnancy may increase the risk of early abortion or congenital deformities of the fetus.
In summary, progesterone is essential for the development of the fetus, Progestins can kill the fetus. Clearly Progestins are not Progesterone. There is only one type of natural progesterone.
The problem is that the media with the help of the pharmaceutical companies have confused doctors and the general public into thinking that Progesterone and Progestins are the same thing - clearly they are not.
Of course the pharmaceutical companies don't want to sell natural progesterone - why?, because they can't patent it; they would rather sell you progestins, their frankenstein version of natural progesterone.
