rowingmom Posted October 3, 2013 Report Share Posted October 3, 2013 I have been aware of the progesterone/brain injury links mentioned in the first post for quite a while, although the mention of using synthetic progestins in place of the bioidentical hormone in the later posts makes me realize that few people understand there is a difference. Synthetic progestins can act quite differently from the bioidentical version. http://www.progesteronetherapy.com/traumatic-brain-injury.html#axzz2gfOA58A6 Medical references are posted on a link at the bottom of the page. The woman that writes this blog is very informed on the current research on bioidentical progesterone, and uses it to help alleviate her symptoms of chronic disease. She owns the company that sells her product (NatPro), but I really think she is in the game to help others, and not to just make money from sales. Her medical references for all of her comments on progesterone and vit D are extensive. The prices for this product are lower than for either Emerita or ProGest, and the concentrations of progesterone are higher. As I am approaching menopause, and DD is approaching puberty (both estrogen dominant periods in a woman's life), we are both using natural progesterone. We both find it to be calming. It hasn't really helped with the physical/pain problems of bartonella, but definately helps with anxiety and fight/flight feelings. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
