Natural Progesterone vs. Estrogen
Osteoporosis, or bone loss, in women has led doctors to routinely prescribe estrogen supplementation, but is there really any benefit in this?
In truth, there is no evidence that this estrogen therapy does much to relieve osteoporosis at all. Yet, this remains the standard medical
approach for osteoporosis.
Dr. John Lee suggests that osteoporosis in women as they age is due to decreasing levels of progesterone, NOT estrogen.
Jerilyn C. Prior, M.D., and her associates also found evidence of progesterone's possible role in countering osteoporosis in a study of sixty-six
premenopausal women between twenty-one and forty-one years of age. All of these women were long-distance marathon runners. It was observed after
twelve months that:
The average spinal bone density decreased by about 2%... However, women who developed ovulation disturbances during the study lost 4.2% of their
bone mass in one year. While there was no correlation between the rate of bone losses and serum levels of estrogen, there was a close relationship
between indicators of progesterone status and bone loss.
The presence or absence of estrogen supplements had no discernible effect on osteoporosis benefits... Progesterone deficiency rather than estrogen
deficiency is a major factor in the pathogenesis of menopausal osteoporosis. (Some other factors promoting osteoporosis are excess protein intake,
lack of exercise, cigarette smoking, and inadequate vitamins A, D, and C.)
Although there are many forms and ways you can take natural progesterone, Dr. Lee promotes the transdermal method. By carefully observing his
patients over the course of fifteen years, he proved the effectiveness of transdermal progesterone cream. His work has confirmed its safety
and its remarkable benefits to his osteoporotic patients who had a history of cancer of the uterus or breast and to those who had diabetes,
vascular disorders, and other conditions.
Dr. Lee had hoped that the progesterone would strengthen his patients' bones. To his surprise, it did; their bone mineral density tests showed
progressive improvement and the number of his patients suffering osteoporotic fracture dropped to zero.
Dr. Lee points out that the "conventional treatment of osteoporosis with estrogen, with or without supplemental calcium and vitamin D, tends to
delay bone mass loss, but not reverse it." His investigation into using transdermal progesterone cream instead of a synthetic estrogen replacement
treatment demonstrates that "osteoporosis subsided, musculoskeletal strength and mobility increased, and monthly vaginal bleeding did not occur."
Most striking were the results of the dual-photon densitometry tests: "a 5-10% increase in bone mineral density; and this was even evident to the
women who were 25 years after menopause."
After many years of researching transdermal progesterone supplementation, Dr. Lee observed in his patients "a progressive increase in bone mineral
density and definite clinical improvement including fracture prevention..." He concluded that "osteoporosis reversal is a clinical reality using
a natural form of progesterone derived from yams that is safe, uncomplicated and inexpensive."
