Progesterone Therapy

Progesterone Therapy

>A ‘Pro’ Health Approach to Aging

If you are a woman between the ages of 30 and 60, you may already know about how vital progesterone is to the female body. An essential component of the menstrual cycle, this hormone creates the environment for the development of an embryo and fetus during pregnancy. Progesterone also plays an important role in converting fat into energy, facilitating thyroid hormone action and helping to restore the sex drive. It addition, progesterone is a natural antidepressant, normalizes blood-clotting, helps to initiate sleep and acts as a natural diuretic.

Since progesterone and estrogen balance each other out in the female body, fluctuating progesterone and estrogen levels can wreak havoc on your system. Whether due to an overproduction of estrogen or external environmental factors that include insulin resistance, chronic stress, poor nutrition and insufficient exercise, low progesterone can result in symptoms that include anxiety, breast tenderness, headaches, insomnia, and more.

Infinite Health and Rejuvenation knows that progesterone is an essential component of a Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy program, regardless of whether or not the female has a uterus. Unfortunately, some physicians do not understand this concept and fail to prescribe progesterone during Estrogen Replacement Therapy. This has lead to an increase in breast and uterine cancers in women on estrogen alone.

In addition to facilitating the action of other hormones such as thyroid, testosterone and endorphins, progesterone offers the following value-added benefits:

• Natural antidepressant and tranquilizer.
• Improves female libido.
• Protects against cancer.
• Boosts thyroid action.
• Helps the body to metabolize fat rather than store it.
• Helps prevent osteoporosis.
