Medical research has shown that natural progesterone therapy can be used to prevent and treat osteoporosis, relieve PMS, symptoms of menopause and enhance thyroid function. Progesterone can also restore sexual interest. But perhaps progesterone’s most important role in the body is to oppose the hormone estrogen.
Back in the early 1970’s, pioneering researcher Dr. John R. Lee turned the medical community upside down when he started prescribing natural progesterone for his female patients. Patients that exhibited symptoms of PMS or menopause were put on natural progesterone therapy instead of the conventional estrogen and synthetic progestins. According to Dr. Lee, most of his female patients were already estrogen dominant and adding conventional hormone replacement therapy would be like adding fuel to a fire.
Dr. Lee’s theory was eventually confirmed when the Women’s Health Initiative study was halted. This major national study intended to determine the effectiveness of conventional HRT. What they found, and the reason the study was abruptly halted, was that just as Dr Lee suspected, additional estrogen and synthetic progestins was causing an increase in the risk for cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Fem-Gest is a blend of natural progesterone (950mg per 2oz jar), and potent plant extracts including Aloe Vera, Chaste tree berry, jojoba oil and vitamin E. The amount of natural progesterone contained in each jar is the amount that Dr. Lee successfully used in his practice for more than twenty years.
The natural progesterone in Fem-Gest is derived from plant sources then synthesized in the laboratory into bio-identical progesterone. The plants extracts in Fem-Gest have been used for hundred of years to revitalize and balance the female endocrine system. Fem-Gest is easily absorbed through the skin and directly into the bloodstream for maximum effectiveness. Fem-Gest can safely be used by men and women of all ages.
Since natural Progesterone is a natural skin moisturizer, the transdermal delivery system in Fem-Gest has major benefits. Progesterone is a lipophilic (fat-loving) hormone and it is readily absorbed by the skin and subsequently into the blood stream. For best results, apply Fem-gest to the face, chest, breasts, inner arms, or soles of feet. The cream is readily absorbed and leaves no trace after a few minutes.
