Natural Progesterone And Osteoporosis Treatment Success
Using natural progesterone and osteoporosis was
successfully treated? Is it possible? After all, natural progesterone is safe
with virtually no side effects when used correctly. It is one of the two primary
hormones produced in a healthy woman during the menstrual cycle, the other
hormone being estrogen. In perhaps the only study of natural progesterone and
osteoporosis treatment of its kind, the success obtained by a leading
Harvard-trained physician for reversing osteoporosis in women is explained.
What is osteoporosis? Osteoporosis is a progressive disease where the bones
become more porous and weaker over time. Untreated, osteoporosis will weaken,
disable and kill both women and men. Almost half of the women in the United
States will fracture a hip, forearm or spine sometime in their lifetime. 20% of
women who fracture their hip will die within one year. And it is not just a
disease of the elderly. Osteoporosis regularly begins its destructive process
for women in their thirties. Becoming slightly shorter in height is the most
noticable of the osteoporosis symptoms. Osteoporosis causes postural changes,
and it makes one more likely to have a bone fracture as one ages.
There are two kinds of bone cells that one should understand. Osteoclasts are
the cells that travel through bone tissue, finding bone tissue that needs
replacing, removing old bone by dissolving it and leaving small cavities or
pores where there once was bone. Osteoblasts are the cells that form new bone
cells in the cavities left by the dissolving tissue. This continous process of
bone resorption and new bone formation is how bones are kept strong in the
healthy body. Bone strength is the result of the balance of these two processes.
Osteoporosis happens when more bone tissue is being dissolved than is being
When are the bones the strongest in women? Bone strength is greatest at around
age 30 for women. Bone loss typically begins in women 5-20 years before
menopause. Osteoporosis occurs regularly in both women and men. Even though a
man begins to lose bone mass considerably later in life than a woman, bone loss
happens in men. Women often begin losing bone mass as early as in their
thirties, whereas bone loss begins in the fifties for a man. By the time men
reach their seventies, their bone weakness equals that of women.
Harvard-trained Dr. John R. Lee is the author of the best-selling womens health
book What Your Doctor May NOT Tell You About Menopause. Dr. Lee studied 100 of
his women patients that were in various stages of osteoporosis. The women in his
study ranged in ages from 38 to 83 with 62.5 being the average age. By adding
supplementation with natural progesterone to an existing natural osteoporosis
treatment program, Dr. Lee found that bone density was increased every year by
3-5% until it stabilized at the bone density levels expected for a 35-year old
woman! All 100 women using the natural progesterone and osteoporosis treatment
reversed their bone loss and grew new bone cells. These results are astounding!
Dr. Lee also observed that the women who had experienced the most bone loss were
the ones that increased bone density the fastest when using this natural
progesterone and osteoporosis reversal treatment! Dr. Lee makes it very clear
that natural progesterone and osteoporosis treatment must include the
osteoporosis treatment elements of proper diet, nutrients and exercise. And for
women approaching the age of menopause (late forties to early fifties) and
older, he felt that natural progesterone supplementation would greatly benefit
women that had already experienced considerable bone loss, and that natural
progesterone would rebuild new bone cells.
Anyone can easily make healthy lifestyle changes that will include
weight-bearing exercise, proper diet, nutritional supplements and natural
progesterone and osteoporosis treatment. Stopping bone loss, rebuilding and
strengthening your bones is entirely possible, according to Dr. Lee. If you or
someone you know is at risk for osteoporosis, learn more and benefit from the
successes of Dr. Lee and other physicians in safely and effectively treating
osteoporosis, a debilitating disease.
