“Progesterone is really good for women.”
Progessence Plus is even better, because it contains micro-amounts so it is better absorbed.
LOW PROGESTERONE CAUSES:
headaches, especially bad migraine headaches
day and night sweats
TMJ (lack of progesterone)
dehydration leading to neuropathy
lack of libido
SEVEN MENOPAUSAL DWARFS:
WHAT BENEFITS DOES PROGESTERONE GIVE TO WOMEN?
prevents 98% of hot flashes
prevents 98% of day or night sweats
prevents 98% of PMS
prevents 98% of migraine headaches in females only
improves post-partum depression
aids in weight loss
mood elevation (best time to take is at night)
helps 98% of TMJ inflammation
reduces breast cancer risk
aids in sleep at night
heals nerves: enables nerve re myelination
improves bone density
makes breasts light and fluffy
P4 or the human biological equivalent of progesterone aids in weight loss.
P4 as used previously does not; it has been a synthetic progesterone which even the MD’s say is synthetic.
Synthetic progesterone, P4, was a risk of breast cancer.
NATURAL P4 IS GOOD.
The molecules here (Progessence Plus) are identical to the human progesterone you make yourself. They are not made of an animal product.
In this case it’s been carefully and naturally made from wild yams. Through a natural company process it becomes actually progesterone. IT IS BIOLOGICALLY IDENTICAL. Progessece Plus is a fully formed progesterone, NOT A YAM PRECURSER. Pure progesterone is the end product. It is super-micronized for better absorption. Physicians are his (Dr. Purser’s) main patients, as there is a lot of bad progesterone out there.
P4 progesterone prevents menstrual migraine headaches in women. This has been widely known since 1971.
P4 helps the re-myelination of nerves, TMJ, PMS, endometriosis.
Frankincense sacra was the first and most important oil added
Bergamont: helps skin penetration
Copaiba: helps with healing, reduces inflammation
Rosewood: 70% of rosewood is linalol, one of the easiest and most penetrating substances known to man.
In a base of Vitamin E (this is a natural E, unlike most E’s)
Application for Progessence Plus :
Essential oils do not remain in the body so don’t clog up the liver, arteries etc.
Although the bottle label says not more than twice a day, Dr.Purser says one can apply it anytime one has symptoms, and referred to a patient who had wonderful results applying it 3 times a day. He suggests putting it on the temples any time one has a migraine. Suggests putting it on neck and possibly also on the forearms, both of which are quick-absorption areas.
Don’t press when applying on the carotid (neck).
Don’t press when applying on the temples.
Cycling (stopping once a month etc.) not necessary; use whenever you need it.
It is safe for young girls; won’t suppress their own progesterone. He has 10 children: lots of young girls running about. It elevates their mood.
A wonderful Testimony:
The following is a testimony from Chelsea Huntsberger. She has given me permission to share it with you and whomever you wish.
Chelsea, from Georgia
“For the past five years, I have suffered from debilitating PMS; I know PMS and cramps may not seem like a big deal to most people, but few people have any clue how much pain I was in and how much it was destroying my life. I was a grump to be around and after my period I would be sick for weeks often requiring hospitalization. On top of that, I’m in my early 20s and a newlywed.
On Sept. 20, 2010, I met Karen Hopkins at a meeting, and she told me about Young Living Essential Oils and what they could do for my situation. When I talked to her, I was sure she could clearly see my hesitance because she was about the 40th person who promised they could help me. After being let down so much, I couldn’t even bring myself to believe her as much as I wanted to. However, three days later my husband and I joined Young Living and ordered the products Karen said would help me.
The following week, I had an appointment with my gynecologist, who told me I needed to be tested for Endometriosis. She informed me that it is a surgical procedure where they make two incisions to check to see what was going on inside and if there are issues they immediately remove the problem. I was very nervous about all this, of course, but I was not sure what else to do.
The day before my appointment, I’d received my first shipment of Young Living products. So I e-mailed Karen about the doctor’s report and to ask what I should do with the oils. Karen said to start with one or two drops of Progessence Plus at a time on my forehead and on the carotid arteries and increase the drops if my symptoms increased. She said to do this before my cycle started and then after it started to use as much as I needed until my symptoms stopped. Also, she told me to drop equal amounts of Vetiver and Valerian in a capsule and swallow when it when I had pain. She said to do as many as needed until the pain stopped. I started using them right away. Honestly, I was praying that they would work and decrease my pain, but deep down I doubted anything would help because I’d tried so many things. If the oils did not work, I would hesitantly opt for surgery.
The following week, I started my period. In the first 24 hours, I did not have a single cramp. I kept expecting them to come because at this point normally I would have been at the hospital. I really couldn’t believe that the oils would help this much. I felt nothing! I’d never experienced this before … feeling completely “normal.” No tiredness, no sickness, no pain, no anything! I was in shock and wondering if the cramps were going to come in the following days, but they didn’t.. I called my mom to tell her, and she couldn’t stop crying because of all people, she really knows how much I have been through with all of this. I told Karen I just could not thank you enough! I am such a believer! My husband can’t help himself; he went to work and told everyone he knew about the oils and what they have been doing for us! It’s truly been a miracle to me. Sooooooooo amazing!
Here’s what I have been doing: Progessence Plus two times a day on the neck area for two weeks before my cycle and then three or four times a day during my cycle. Also, Valerian on the bottom of the feet and Vetiver on the stomach area. These were applied used as soon at the period started, and I only put it on those places because I didn’t have the pill capsules yet. I will be ordering NingXia Red to help balance my blood and nourish my immune system and will start putting drops of lemon oil in my water to drink.
This has literally changed my life. I was getting all ready to talk to the doctor about surgery and now … this brings tears to my eyes … I just can’t believe it. Praise GOD.”
In regards to the label on the bottle:
[Note from Nandini: At this time the ingredients are not listed on the label. There is also a "Warning: this product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer" on the label. Naturally I inquired about this and was told that California requires all progesterone, natural or chemical, to be labeled in this way, as it considers progesterone of all types to be dangerous to health. YL is complying here with California law, and it is my understanding that Young Living is hoping to have this removed from our label and then produce a newer more complete label.]
Was reading your notes on Dr. Dan Purser’s work and thought you might like to re-read your comments on California law.
Below is what I wrote as what I read regarding the California Act.
Naturally I inquired about this and was told that California requires all progesterone, natural or chemical, to be labeled in this way. This comes from research regarding NOT natural progesterone which has been shown to be a carcinogenic. California law does not distinguish between the real and the not natural. YL is complying here with California law, and it is my understanding that Young Living is hoping to have this removed from our label and then produce a newer more complete label.
Here is the actual summation of the act:
Why is Natural Progesterone listed on Proposition 65?
The OEHHA reviewed a series of animal studies that used progestins (synthetic progesterone) and natural progesterone (bio-identical progesterone). The greater percentage of the studies were with progestins and natural progesterone combined with synthetic estrogens. The administered doses of natural progesterone were up to 1000 times that found in natural progesterone creams and were either injected, oral or suppository. Just a few of the studies used natural progesterone exclusively and not one of the studies used a natural progesterone cream. Based on this review, the State of California made the decision to add natural progesterone (bio-identical) to proposition 65. California is the only state that has made this decision and no other State supports proposition 65. In the past, many decisions like this have been reversed and the item was removed from proposition 65 in what California refers to as being “Delisted”.
What does this mean for Natural Progesterone Cream in California?
All the experts on natural progesterone creams soundly disagree with the decision by California,
