What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Hormone Balance by John R. LeeIm still reading this book, but so far Im impressed by the common-sense holistic approach Dr. Lee takes when it comes to treating women who are experiencing change of life and hormonal issues associated with menopause.
Ive been having some dermatological problems for about 1 1/2 years, during which time Ive been to a nurse practitioner, family practice primary care physician and numerous visits to a dermatologist. I began to suspect my problems were hormonal when the powerful medications, ointments and creams prescribed by the above medical professionals failed to give me much relief and the skin problems appeared about the same time I experience an increase in my middle...even though I was exercising frequently and I had just completed a swim marathon (26 miles in 4 weeks), I seemed to have developed a life-saver of padding around my waistline. I figured it was due to swimming, so I laid off swimming and went back to aerobic exercise and weight-training. Some of the padding came off, but I still seem to have more of me than I would like.
I had a few other minor symptoms of pre-menopause, so I started thinking maybe my skin issues were hormonally caused.
Dr. Lees book makes mention of these and other symptoms being helped by natural progesterone cream. (Note: not all creams are created equal, so he gives a list of some of the good ones in the back of his book).
After only one day of using the cream, I feel incredibly better. I think my skin looks better too. Even my husband said to me this morning, You look more hopeful than you have in a long time!
I realize this could be the placebo effect, so Im taking my time and keeping notes before I announce a miracle cure, but if this can help another woman experiencing hormonal issues, I wanted to get the word out.
By the way, I have used this natural progesterone cream made from wild yams once before in my life. It was after a particularly debilitating miscarriage after 14 weeks of pregnancy. My midwife recommended it to help prevent another miscarriage, as I wanted to get pregnant again soon. I used it and was pregnant very soon after the miscarriage. That little boy is 9 years old now.
