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.

What your doctor may not tell you about menopause : the breakthrough book on natural progesterone
Current estimates are that severe PMS occurs in 2. PMS was first described in as a "state of unbearable tension," a description most women can understand to a certain degree. Some women have PMS from the time they begin having menstrual cycles but for most, PMS begins in the premenopausal years, around the mid-thirties, and becomes increasingly severe as the years go on. In women with severe PMS, irritability and mood swings can become outbursts of anger and rage. By definition PMS symptoms occur in the two weeks before menstruation and sometimes for a few days into menstruation. You should know right up front that there is no magic bullet for PMS. A little bit of progesterone will help a lot, and in some women it solves the problem, because it offsets the effects of environmental estrogens and anovulatory cycles, but PMS is a multi-factorial problem that needs to be handled on many physical levels as well as on the emotional level.
