Symptoms of estrogen dominance include:

- Mood swings
- Memory loss
- Sore breasts
- Migraine headaches
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
- Decreased sex drive
Dr. Lee revolutionized the treatment of menopausal (estrogen dominance) symptoms. He concluded that natural progesterone, especially applied to the skin in the form of a cream, would relieve these estrogen dominance symptoms.
Natural progesterone as an estrogen dominance supplement corrects hormone imbalance by opposing many of the effects of unbalanced estrogen.
Progesterone increases sex drive, helps normalize sleep patterns, prevents bloating, works as an antidepressant, helps memory loss and mood swings, normalizes periods, helps with hair loss and reduces breast tenderness due to estrogen dominance.
Progesterone is absorbed through the skin and into the blood when applied to areas where the skin is thin and there are many capillaries (tiny blood vessels). In contrast, about 80% of the progesterone thatâ€™s taken orally is lost in the liver by what is known as the “first pass ” effect. Thus much higher doses are required for treatment.
A good natural progesterone cream, especially in combination with exercise and a healthy diet will go a long way in relieving your estrogen dominance symptoms.
