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

Gone are Those Days of Feeling Bloated and Suffering the Yo-Yo Weight Gain/Loss of around 5 lbs. Due to Fluid Retention.
Dear Dr. Eckhart,
I think Progestelle is an absolutely fantastic product. I’m 37 years and I have been living with monthly bloating and moodiness for the past 17 years. Using Progestelle, as it’s recommended every month, has improved my quality of life two-fold. I suffer from many cysts on the ovaries, a small fibroid and from cysts in the breast. The cyclic changes my body went through for so many years are virtually non-existent today. Thank you Dr. Eckhart for such a marvelous product!
Progestelle has even ameliorated the “manic” and “chip-on-my-shoulder” episodes that would take hold of me about one week before my period. Gone are those days of feeling bloated and suffering the yo-yo weight gain/loss of around 5 lbs. due to fluid retention. I could go on and on about the benefits of Progestelle.
I do recommend this product to any women suffering from mood swings and bloating.

I Ordered Your Product and Within 5 Days I Noticed My Hair Growing Back!
I wanted to write about your product and it's amazing results in my life! I had suffered for many years and didn't know why or how the reasons! I am 39 and have 3 children. I suffered monthly moodiness and bloating after my children were born but after my 3rd child things began to turn ugly. I went to my doctor and she prescribed lexapro and ativan, even though I was not depressed, I thought at this point anything has got to help! It didn't! It got worse and I took myself off the meds. I continued to have mood swings, sleepless nights, fatigue and weight gain and nothing seemed to be working. With all this happening I noticed I began losing my hair on top of my head, which for a woman is total disaster! I quickly began researching on the Internet of my symptoms and found I may be estrogen dominate! Maybe this was my problem the whole time! I went to my doctor about what I found on your website and was quickly discouraged from purchasing anything from the Internet and was told "what I really needed was antidepressants"!! I couldn't believe it! I felt in my heart of hearts this was the answer, told my doctor I was going to pursue progesterone and not her meds. I ordered your product and within 5 days I noticed my hair growing back! I noticed my mood swings were gone and I was happier, sweeter and kinder to everyone around me! I felt like a completely new person!
I cannot thank you enough! You have a customer for life! I 've been taking it regularly (expect during my period) at night, and I can sleep now and get the rest I have been needing! THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU! I took Dr. Eckard's advice and started using natural makeup and now my face is more clearer and it has been in 4 years! Again, thank you for your product and your work!

Life has Changed Dramatically
Hi Dr. Eckhart,
I have been using Progestelle for over a year now ( 1 dropper day 14 - 26 ) .... life has changed dramatically even though I had no underlying problems other than pre-menopausal symptoms and PMS.
4 of my friends have started using bio-identical progesterone , 2 of whom are using Progestelle. Happily, 2 of my friends' symptoms changed very fast but the two who used other creams have not seen much of a change at all. They are now considering ordering Progestelle ..
Ordering a product over the internet is a little scary ... happily it has been a huge success :)
Last month I ran out of oil 3 days early :(
Finances were a little tight and so I have only been able to order this week. I really hoped that it would not make a lot of difference ....
I am so impatient to get back to where I was .... I am not sleeping the same, brain fog is back, I am irrationally irritable, emotions all over the place and miss the desire for my darling husband ( who is happily recommending the oil to his friends ).
Lesson learned ... this is too important to go last on the budget ... when Mum is happy, everyone is happy :)
Thank you for your marvelous product and giving women hope that they can live a hormonally balanced life.

I Feel Good
Wow my skin is looking much better, libido is sky high :), and I feel so good. This formula takes away my mood swings, anxieties. I didn't know I had estrogen dominance until recently. I have cut out almost all xenoestrogens (as stated in the booklet) and have been using this morning and night and I feel fantastic.
