A Life Saver... Just had Major Surgery, Depression Lifted 

A life saver...just had major surgery to remove two large fibroids and a cyst on my ovaries. my hormones were out of whack. So much so that I had an ongoing period for 4 months that rendered me have 2 d and c's to no avail and multiple blood transfusions. My hemoglobin dropping below 5. I was very ill and i believe it all started once I began taking birth control pills... loaded with estrogen... Post surgery the bleeding stopped but my cycle wouldn't Start now... hormone imbalance again...I bought this oil and started using it...immediately the muscles where I had the surgery felt more relaxed...I felt more calm...the depression began to lift.. .and within a couple weeks my period started and it was normal! I'm 29 year old and will never be without this...its a life saver

You Are Amazing!  I Was Desperate, Depressed, and Discouraged. 

I just had to write. You are amazing! Thank you so much for recommending the iodine. I truly think I was desperate, depressed and discouraged. Lugol's Iodine solution arrived a few days ago. I was somewhat skeptical, as it gave no instructions on the bottle and said, "Talisman only," which kind of freaked me out. But I followed your instructions and I already notice an improvement, especially in my hair and skin. Without a sympathetic doctor here in France, you have helped me greatly. I will continue to supplement with progestelle.

Thank you again.

I Started Using it for the Fibroids, But it has Made my Hair Thicker, my Skin Younger, Anti-Depressants Discontinued 

I had suffered for many years with uterine fibroids. Most doctors will tell you (as mine did) that fibroid tumors will not shrink and can ONLY be treated surgically. My ultrasound showed many fibroids, some the size of a baseball. After about 10 years of heavy bleeding, anemia and abdomen pain, I finally scheduled the surgery, not knowing how I could pay for it, as I did not have health insurance at the time. A friend of mine recommended natural progesterone to balance my hormones and I started using a cream that I got from the local health food store. I also started researching alternative treatments on the internet where I found Progestelle. I started a regular regimen with Progestelle and an Edgar Cayce treatment of castor oil packs and in three months my fibroids were down by one third, as proven by a second ultrasound. Needless to say, I cancelled my surgery and continued the Progestelle regimen. Now, several years later, I recommend Progestelle to every woman I know that wants to feel "normal" again. I started using it for the fibroids, but it has made my hair thicker, my skin younger and it's even sailed me through menopause without a care! I have been able to discontinue my anti-depressants, too. Thank you SO much for Progestelle! It's been a lifesaver.

I'm Doing Better.  Fibrocystic Breast Disease Much Improved. PMS Greatly Reduced. 

Thank you!

I'm doing better. I started the Progestelle in December after being diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease (like around 30 small cysts were found in addition to one really huge one which tipped me off). I strictly followed your booklet's guidelines and threw out all sources of chemicals - makeup, laundry detergent, toothpaste, shampoo, etc. - changed my diet entirely to organic and raw foods, eliminated coffee (boo hoo) and sugars and other high-glycemic foods, switched entirely to grass-fed beef and other non-toxic meats, and stopped pumping my body full of soy and flax and disruptive oils (switching completely to virgin expeller-pressed coconut oil) etc., and the large lump is no longer palpable, although when I press where it was, there is pain sometimes (like now, at 11 days after my period). Before changing my lifestyle, in the two weeks before my period, my breasts would start to swell and become huge until menstruation, and now there is only pain in my right underarm which radiates into the right breast (the one that had the huge lump) a few days before menstruation.

PMS has been greatly reduced to one day just before menstruation, and sometimes not even that, although after dosing with Progestelle at full-strength for four months, last month I'd reduced it to the maintenance dose and exposed myself for a week or so to a moisturizer that was all organic ingredients but contained safflower oil, and I ate quite a bit super-dark chocolate and peanut butter, which I hadn't had for four months, and the PMS definitely worsened: my breasts both became swollen although not to the degree they had been, my skin broke out and I felt irritable, aggressive and depressed; it was so sharply noticeable that it felt like a memory of a completely different phase of my life and drove home the point that my body had indeed changed, so this month I will return to applying the full dose (and have had less chocolate).

I'm a bit concerned about the pain in my underarm, but anticipate it's eventual correction since your booklet said it could take years for the body to fully rebalance. Any advice?

I was so Glad when it [the bleeding] Stopped within 2 days of Using the Product! (Progesterone cream) 

When I first starting using it, I had been bleeding for about 3 months. The bleeding stopped within two days of starting the Progestelle. As long as I take it, mood swings are less frequent, and my period is more regular, though of less duration. Sometimes I am off the Progestelle for a couple weeks before my period actually starts.

I did an experiment last month and didn't use the Progestelle at all. It was a bad month! mood swings, depression, crying. I am back on it now and feeling much better. Also, I have been battling vaginal yeast, and the symptoms seemed to be less while I was off the Progestelle. I'm not sure if there's a correlation. Any thoughts on that? I'll let you know when I'm ready for another shipment. Thanks!

Yes, you can publish my testimony. If you need any other background info for it, let me know. I am 45 years old, always had a "regular" period, and they started getting somewhat irregular in the past year,(sometimes very light, sometimes 2 in a month) While I was bleeding for those three months, it was variable, but continuous. I even had times when it was so heavy, one clot or burst of blood would soak me and I had to leave work immediately. That's why I was so glad when it stopped within 2 days of using the product!

I use extra virgin coconut oil on my face as a moisturizer, and Larenim (supposed to be the cleanest)brand make-up over the top of that. I do use some shampoo that may have some bad stuff in it, but mostly Kiss My Face, Giovanni, or other "health" brands of shampoo and lotion. I use soap that a friend of mine makes for washing, and "green" type products for cleaning. I do, however, use clorox wipes on occasion. It may be a while before I have time to send ingredients, but I will keep it in mind, and appreciate your offer to look it over. Thank you!

Editor's Note: Usually yeast infections go away with progesterone. Usually yeast infections are due to estrogen dominance. Chronic estrogen exposure leads to yeast infection and a lessened sensitivity to estrogen (down regulation).

The reason why the yeast infection got worse is after taking progesterone Caryl's sensitivity to estrogen went back up to normal. It seemed like she was getting more estrogen even though she was not. Thus, she got a yeast infection. The solution is to cut out all xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens.

Decrease in my Anxiety Level and Weight Loss.  Scar Tissue Gone.  Bloating Better.  No Depression when Dieting. 

Sept. 9, 2009
Dear Dr. Eckhert,

Thank you so much for the time you spent with me last Saturday providing me with the information I needed to know due to the fact I could not read the printed word in your pamphlet. What I find most interesting is that my anxiety level has dropped so much since I began taking the progesterone.

The next think that I find remarkable is that the I had been losing detail in my only eye which is a 10 degree field. Within the week I began to see some detail on a landmark that I have. I thought naw this can't be possible but it is. My dry eye appears to be dissipating.

According to my cornea specialist dry eye is suppose to be a fact of life as one gets older. My intestines seem to be cleaning themselves out since I began this liquid and bloating is going down. I had been given cyclosporine as an experimental drug to protect two human corneas from rejecting and the side effects have been incredible besides both corneas rejected. I have worked hard on my diet to maintain my sight but the weight gain was insane. Within this week my body appears to be deflating and my hair is silkier. That is strange to me.

I have eliminated the herbs and foods that are recommended and changed our laundry detergent. I hope and pray that this is the answer that I have been seeking since 2004 to bring my body back to where it was going.

Thanks so much for the dialogue. It was very much appreciated.

Dear Dr. Eckert,

I have been taking progesterone now for two months. I have noticed a remarkable down in my anxiety level, weight loss and the ability to actually get to the bathroom in time due to less frequent incontinence.

I have also listened to your suggestion of how to handle chocolate cravings and went for half of a banana and noticed that this has done the trick I believe this correction only took place because I abandoned all of the herbs that were suggested not to use which you read to me. Before if I went for the orange or had half a banana it really didn’t make a difference I wanted the chocolate anyway.

I also noticed that there is a reduction in food intake without me forcing the issue or concentrating on not eating. When my stomach says its full it means it and doesn’t want anymore. Because I have been working on correcting and balancing my body all my life and have been giving medication most of my life i.e. steroids it has been a non stop balancing act without real results. The calm that I am now experiencing is enabling me to feel less anxious when I have to meet more challenges which appear to be never ending in my life. But I do not have the same reactions to stress.

Since I have tried everything in my life to correct my body weight and other problems I am so appreciative especially to have the ability not to be in constant worry.

Thanks so much,

Very truly yours,

Rita M.

Dear Dr. Eckhart,

I thought the following may be of interest to you. The scar tissue on my hand is now just a freckle and we can actually see the hand underneath. This is incredible.

I have eliminated all of the foods and herbs on the list that you gave me...The interesting think is that I just wanted time off from my over all diet. I DID NOT USE ANYTHING FROM the LIST though. So last week, I gave my self a break on all the legal things. The two days of being free cost me 5 days to be able to move forward again. The ability to move forward without becoming depressed or destructive was a first in my history of dieting.

The clarity of my mind is really the big change. There is a big shift here that I can notice. I can't say to you it is all due to the progesterone balancing act, but I can say to you that this never happened before. Something is going on here definitely as my hypothalamus is speaking loud and clear to me about observing when I am almost full now. The last time I wrote you I was able to figure out when I was full this time it is stating to you STOP before you are full. My balancing act is a life long 50 year battle so all I can do is state to you what I am observing.

My education, experience and my knowledge of health and nutrition never hit upon this balancing act. The professionals that taught me or I went to always would blame the patient for not moving forward. Drugs and behavior and telling the patient that they are not disciplined were the common practice of informing a patient of their failing the diet they were given. Ah, but at this point of my life. It appears that must be more to all this. So this is my update. Thanks for listening.

Dr. Eckhart,

thanks for the quick response. The scar on my hand was scar tissue from i.v.'s over the years in the same place. In the last month I began putting some of the progesterone drops on the scar tissue.  After I noticed it was considerably smaller with the treatment of the drops over the last few months and voila it is almost gone.

All I can do is tell you what is going on not why. I have been on this journey or taking back my life from being ill since birth from one thing or another. I think the elimination on the food list you suggested enabled me to have clear thinking. I cannot come to any other conclusion as i HAVE BEEN TRACKING THINGS ALL MY LIFE AND FOLLOWING OTHER ALTERNATIVE WAYS WHICH DID NOT HELP ME IN THE LONG RUN. THE SWELLING AND PAIN IN MY ARMS is almost gone since I eliminated all of the products on the food list and changed the laundry products.

I have a question for you... Calcification in the breast does it eventually go away? Yes you may publish what you think would help others. As this is what is most important and that is to encourage others to not give up and continue to balance themselves.

All the Best,

Rita M.

Hello. Sorry to bother you but I have been thinking on how I responded to you about the scar tissue on my hand.  As it kept on going round and round in my head. And I sounded to me very stupid...after the fact

I thought of this and realized after 7 months I responded to you in this fashion BECAUSE I learned to trust you over the months that I have been taking the progesterone. All of the things you stated that would take place have. I am sleeping at night. The scar tissue on my ovaries seems to have disappeared and I can turn in bed without screaming in pain. Anxiety level has dropped. So why shouldn't the scar tissue on my hand disappear?

For the first time I do not have to second guess a MD or look up the side effects as I have none nor is the cure making balancing act making me feel miserable. I have tried everything and everyone...including my own education and ability.

I couldn't help myself though everyone else around me gets better from my educating them.

People will not take you seriously as a healer if you are a blimp happens to me all the time. I won't be able to do what I wish in this area unless the weight comes off. Nice to say I couldn't figure out which bathing suit to put on this morning as I have two the same but in different sizes and I can't read the tag. I accidentally put on the smaller one and it fit without being tight. Oh I couldn't even pull up the bottom to the suit three weeks ago. I realized at this point of this program. I am learning to trust you without looking up things because I am seeing results. It is nice to sleep though the night.

Question: While your are cringing reading this I have to ask ah does caffeine free diet coke cause calcifications on the breast? Yes, I have been drinking a can a day and stopped yesterday, for the last 24 days.  Other than this I have been honestly sticking to the what the plan is...

Thanks for taking the time to read this answering my questions and finding out all the estrogen and environmental chemicals that cause problems.
Rita M.

Smiles. And is still somewhat scared as I move forward...

Editor's Note: Estrogen Dominance (too much estrogen) from Environmental Estrogens cause a magnesium deficiency. This magnesium deficiency causes calcifications in the breast and other places. The solution is to take 800-1000 mg/day of Magnesium Citrate until you almost get diarrhea, take progesterone cream and cut out Environmental Estrogens. In many cases, the calcifications dissolve away.

If you have a magnesium deficiency, this causes calcium to create calcifications in the body in unwanted places.  Most of these calcifications are calcium oxalate.  Magnesium oxalate is 567 times more soluble than calcium oxalate.  Also the citrate ion will complex to the calcium to form a soluble complex.

Feeling Better, No Sugar Cravings, Breast cysts are disappearing! Laughing Again!

Hello Dr. Eckhart: I just had to email and tell you how Progestelle has changed my life. I am a 59 year old wife, mom and grandma who takes care of 4 grandchildren 3-4 days per week - a 6 year old girl, two 4 year old girls and an 18 month old boy.

One month ago, I was ready to give up. Every morning I would wake up and convince myself to make it one more day. I would plod through the day waiting for the kids to go home, dinner to be over so I could bury myself in my hobby of cross stitching where all you have to do is count! I would go to bed plagued with panic attack dreams just to wake up in the morning to convince myself to make it another day.

I had started seeing doctors about 3 years ago for Panic Attacks - their suggestion (and prescription) was Zanax and Atenolol - which was for my prehypertension (caused from the panic attack I was having at the doctor's office). My heart had been sonogrammed and EKG'd and was said to be fine. Although no one told me what to do about the panic attacks except for drugs, I researched and learned how to help myself during an attack - especially those that were started from dreams. I must say, I am actually pretty good at stopping them now. Then there are the doctors that want to cut out the cysts in my breast lumps in my breasts which again I said no to. To make a long story short, not one doctor has given me any information that could have helped me either with the panic attacks, prehypertension that happens only when I'm in a panic attack (usually from the doctor!), or the lumps.

Then I found your website by searching for info on cysts in my breast - information gives you the power to overcome! That was one month ago.

Today, I must say to you "thank you for giving me my life back". After the second day of using Progestelle, I woke up and thought "I can do this". Now I wake up every day happy to greet the day and see my grandchildren and look forward to playing with them and teaching them. My life has changed so much - I am excited about each new day, no panic attacks for a month, I'm losing the belly fat, I AM LAUGHING AGAIN! I am amazed at the lack of desire for sugar. I can look at something sweet and think 'yuck'. (I think I was using sugar to get me through the day.) Having a bit of trouble getting rid of the cup of coffee but am working on that! The lumps in my breasts are getting smaller. By the way, my husband says 'thank you' too - we've been married 26 years and he's 14 years younger than I and happy to see me return to the world of the living. We are having fun together again.

Thank you, thank you -

Normal Again!

I've started with the natural progesterone cream and love it! My depression is gone and in the past two weeks I've lost eight pounds. My carbohydrate and sweet cravings are gone. I have more energy. I have to mark my periods on the calendar for I don't get any monthly bloating and mood swings symptoms. My question is why in the hell didn't I hear about this sooner? Are doctors really that ignorant that women have to go out and do their own research. I'm forty-two years old and wished I could have taken this at thirty. The only thing my body takes in is natural progesterone cream. No more drugs! Yeah! I have both books from Dr. Lee, but wish my message could be broadcasted to all the women out there who rely on their doctors. But then pharmaceuticals would be out of business for sure. My body has already paid a high price over the years due to being used as a guinea pig for doctors' ignorance and stupidity.

Thank God for Dr. Lee and Dr. Northup. I'm back to normal.

Thank You For Giving Me My Life Back
