Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Transition into the cessation of periods is a turbulent, symptomatic whirlwind consisting of hot flashes, mood changes, night sweats, cravings, weight gain, and hair growth in unwelcome places just to name a few. At least that’s what society sets women up to believe. However, this need not be the case. Prevention is the key, and if one has been living a healthy lifestyle incorporating whole food nutrition, stress reduction techniques, and regular exercise, this transition can be a smooth process with very little additional support needed. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Let me assure you, it isn’t.

 Progesterone Fact Sheet

1. Women need an equal balance of both estrogen and progesterone for their bodies to be hormonally balanced. This is a well known medical fact, not new to the medical profession.

2. Blood tests are used to determine estrogen levels which completely ignore progesterone levels. Progesterone levels do not show up in a blood test; in fact, progesterone is rarely tested at all. (The progesterone level is found in a saliva test.)

3. The belief has been, for the last 30 years that a lack of estrogen has caused the symptoms mentioned, when in fact, the lack of progesterone to balance the estrogen is causing these symptoms, as well as possibly contributing to cervical, uterine and breast cancer.

4. ESTROGEN DOMINANCE occurs when your progesterone level is lower than your estrogen level.

5. The balance of estrogen and progesterone does fluctuate naturally during our lives. However, our lifestyles, culture, prescription medications and eating habits have contributed to estrogen dominance.

6. Progesterone production, which dominates the second half of the menstrual month, reaches a peak of about 20 milligrams per day. With one pump of Arbonne’s PhytoProlief, which is administered transdermally (absorbed through the skin), supplies 20 milligrams of natural progesterone, which is just what we need.

7. Progesterone production in a woman in her third trimester of pregnancy is anywhere from 300 to 400 milligrams, so you can be sure that 20 milligrams a day is quite safe.

PhytoProlief contains the following progesterone herbs:
            • Black Cohosh
            • Chaste Tree Berry
            • Dong Quai
            • Evening Primrose Oil
            • Red Clover
            • Alfalfa
            • Licorice
            • Ginseng

 Natural alternatives can be a solution to imbalance, but it’s a decision every woman must make for herself.  PhytoProlief is exactly that, a botanically based option for natural balance.
