Ladies… are you experiencing anxiety, insomnia, PMS or infertility? It could be that you’re low in progesterone.
You hear a lot about testosterone and estrogen… but PROGESTERONE is often forgotten and super important! Progesterone is my favourite hormone, so much that I call it the “Serenity Hormone” for it’s calming effect on our brains, nervous system and uterus.
Too many women are being prescribed:
-ANTI-DEPRESSANTS for anxiety
-SEDATIVES for insomnia
-BIRTH CONTROL for PMS
-IVF for infertility
In some of these cases, progesterone levels aren’t even looked at! Boosting progesterone for someone in the less-than-optimal range will make them feel so much better.
WHAT PROGESTERONE DOES:
-Decreases menstrual cramps
-Anti-aging for skin’s elasticity & circulation
-Helps you become & stay pregnant
-Protects ovaries from PCOS
-Regulates menstrual cycles
-Improves sleep quality
-Protects brain against concussion & brain injuries
-Protects brain against aging for memory & focus
HOW I HELP PATIENTS WITH LOW PROGESTERONE:
-Herbal supplements (like Vitex agnus)
-Herbal creams (like Wild Yam)
-Cortisol-lowering agents (like Ashwaghanda)
-Stress reduction (like meditation)
-Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (creams or vaginal suppositories)
MAJOR SIDE-NOTE: Synthetic progestins in your birth control pill DO NOT have the same anti-anxiety and cognition benefits that bioidentical progesterone does!
