Migraine Headaches Varies with Cycle

Real Patient Testimonial about Progesterone to Alleviate Migraine Headaches Associated with the Menstrual Cycle

 

I Can’t Thank You Enough.  Pain Free Periods.  Headaches More Infrequent. 

I have had a terrifically difficult year, seemingly becoming allergic to my own estrogen. I have had rheumatoid arthritis since childhood, and since trying for my first baby have been on steroids and had difficulty getting off them. I finally figured out two things, I couldn’t get off them because I was horribly estrogen dominant and also the steroids (prednisolone) were converting directly into estrogen in my body and making me very, very unwell with dizziness, swollen veins(?) in my head, crushing fatigue, dry infected eyes, ovarian cysts, swollen uterus, poor digestion, and finally, and worst of all an inability to breathe when my estrogen spiked at ovulation and a few days before my period. I was hyperventilating and twitching involuntarily… basically in a state of shock I think. 

Since working out the connection with the steroids, I have halved my dose and only take 1 mg at a time, which has helped immensely. I hope to get off them fully when my arthritis allows me to. And since using a combination of progest e and progestelle (the progestelle is wonderful for rubbing on inflamed joints) my ‘allergic’ response has calmed down almost entirely, my periods are pain free, my headaches are down to only one day per month, my arthritis is improving every day, my energy is better, my digestion is back on track, my ovarian cysts are gone, my dizziness is gone, and many, many other wonderful improvements. 

I can’t thank you enough.

Thanks again,

I Finally had a Breakthrough! Migraines Improved! Bloating, Breast Swelling, Tenderness Way Down! 

This is Michelle B. in Kailua – here is a photo of the rainbow on Kailua Bay Christmas morning. Thought you would like this. 

I am writing because this month I finally had a breakthrough for January regarding my estrogen dominance, histamine-like migraines - I only had one migraine at ovulation and one migraine the first day of my period. Incredible! I usually have 4 migraines / 1 each day for 4 days both at ovulation and again during my period. 

Bloating, breast swelling and tenderness went way down and I barely gained but 2 pounds during each part of the cycle, which I promptly lost. 

For the first time I feel like there is a chance to gain some control over the disabling frequency and severity of years and years of these migraines. 

By focusing more on reducing xenoestrogens, and employing other changes, I think I am turning things around 

Of course I use your progestelle, but also: 

First, I took your advice and changed my laundry detergent. Unfortunately we could not find a single type or brand you recommend, but I changed it from fragranced ALL to UNscented ALL free clear. Used it all during December and January. 

Second, changed shampoo, soap, sunscreen etc. 

Third, my new prescription of low-dose hydrocortisone for low adrenal cortisol has been in place for 10 weeks. Without sufficient cortisol my body cannot mitigate the histamine response I get during the estrogen surge. I have battled fatigue / low cortisol after Epstein Barr virus in 2010. I have made more progress towards stability, more stamina and energy to do more basic tasks in 10 weeks than in all 19 months preceding. . Sadly, my doctor who wonderfully put me on the W McK Jeffries low dose protocol died tragically this week, so I don’t know if another Hawaii doctor will continue to help me...... Dr. Shintani may be my only hope. 

Fourth, I stopped eating foods that contain higher levels of histamine, foods that I eat a lot of: stopped chicken, spinach, tomatoes, kidney beans, black beans, green beans and fresh squeezed lemon on salads and in water. I never knew about food-related histamine – I thought it was simply a reaction, not actually also a phyto-component of some foods.... 

Fifth, based on your suggestion in the pamphlet I stopped all the licorice I was taking for adrenal support 10 weeks ago. Did not know it was estrogenic – and this has to be a major problem for why my migraines got so much worse while I have battled adrenal fatigue. 

Thanks to you and other efforts on my part, something is starting to change. I will update you on how the February cycle goes. 

Aloha, Michelle B.

After About 3 months, I began to Notice an Improvement in My Energy, Headaches, Muscle Twitching, Sleep 

About 6 months ago, I was having several long term, chronic symptoms and would spend many a night perusing the internet to find a possible cause. I had been to many doctors over the years who informed me that it was all in my head because, "according to the blood work", I was healthy. It was all very frustrating. I was experiencing headaches that occurred around my menstruation, twitching around my eyes and in my abdominal region, dry flaky skin, constant sleepiness, high cholesterol, etc. I tried many things, especially, for the headaches and twitching. Nothing worked! Then I found Dr. Eckhart's website. I immediately tried the progestelle and purchased the magnesium he recommended. WOW! The Mag stopped the twitching within days!! The Progestelle worked just like he said it would. At first, I had a horrible panic attack. So, I kept the recommended dosage but took half in the morning and half at night. I followed his instructions so as to remove estrogenic substances from use. After about 3 months, I began to notice an improvement in my energy, stopped taking nsaids for the headaches, was sleeping much better, and noticed a marked improvement in my skin. I stayed on the full dose another 3 months and now am tapering off. I still continue to avoid foods and substances on THE LIST. I am very satisfied with this product and am currently taking the bioflavanoids and iodoral. It's refreshing to know there are still M.D. 's out there that seem to really care about women's health and well being.

Dr. Eckhart, my sincere thanks!

I Have Had Monthly Migraines Since I was 12 years old, .. With the Exception of One "mini" Migraine in January, I Have Been Otherwise Migraine Free for 6 months!!!!! 


Hi I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all the incredible information on your website. IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. =) =) =) I am now 30 years old. I have had monthly migraines since I was 12 years old, 2-3 days before my period, like clockwork, with the exception of a few months here and there where I never understood what I was doing right in avoiding them, and a few extra migraines where I never could tell what I was doing wrong. These are awful, debilitating migraine headaches involving leaving work, nausea and throwing up for the rest of the day, and just trying my best to sleep it off. 

In August last year I found a great new job and decided I would treat myself to a Starbucks soy latte (yep!) and breakfast on Fridays. After developing migraines by noon 2 Fridays in a row I knew there HAD to be some kind of correlation! I was fortunate enough to stumble on your website--and am EVER so grateful that I did. I watched all 6 videos on your website. I eliminated all bad xeno-estrogens in all my personal products like you said. With the exception of one "mini" migraine in January, I have been otherwise migraine free for 6 months!!!!! I have been taking EstroSmart (also EstroSense), developed by Lorna Vanderhaeghe, which helps break down estrogens, and gently supplementing with your progestelle cream when I feel extra estrogen dominant. 

So thank you so very, very much for your information. Thank you for making it free and accessible to everyone. You have changed my life and I am forever grateful. =) 

Sincerely, 

Ruth G.

I Wanted to Let You Know How Great Your Product Is! 

Hello Dr. Eckhart, 

I wanted to let you know how great your product is! I started using it 6/1/12 and only 19 days later I am no longer having hot flashes!! It is amazing! I was having hot flashes so bad in the night it would happen almost every 15 minutes for about an hour and I was getting migraines from that. 

Thank you so much for all your hard work to figure this out! 

Now I am hoping to loss some weight from taking this. You did mention that some women are able to get their metabolism back to running and begin to lose weight. Do you know how long that normally takes? 

Blessings,

My Migraine Headaches Pre- Period Have Disappeared 

By the way, I am having great results with Progestelle. My migraine headaches pre- period have disappeared, and my hair has stopped falling out.

I'm Doing Really Great.  No More Headaches. 


I'm doing really great. Have made some major changes in the food I eat (Traditional Nutrition) and have been very faithful at applying the progesterone and I feel better now than I did when I was younger (I'm 55 now). One thing I started doing for about 6 months now is I never go off the progesterone. I take it continually. Every time I went off for a week, within a day or so I started getting headaches again. So I just stay on and it's worked out great. Thanks for all you do for women. Very thankful for you.

No Stomach Aches, Bloating or Headaches, No Breast Pain and My Moods are More Consistent Day to Day 


Dear Dr. Eckhart,

Just a short note to let you know that I am so great. I have removed as many xenoestrogens as possible from my environment, skin and diet, as you advised, for nearly a month now and the improvement has been amazing. I am using the Nature Clean powder detergent, no dryer sheets, Elysian Dream products for hair and skin (fragrance free and those without rosemary and lavendar oils, only ones with olive oil, and the organic, fragrance-free shea butter), and the crystal deodorant vs. regular deodorant (AMAZINGLY better), and we changed all of our household products to the Nature Clean line and no longer use any antibacterial foaming soaps or anything. Just Grandpa's baking soda soap for regular hand washing.

I have lost seven pounds this month, my last period cycle was 28 days (who knew!) and my hair has started to grow back (after four years of thinning!!). The biggest thing is that my body is, quiet, for lack of a better way to describe it! No stomache aches, bloating or headaches, no breast pain and my moods are more consistent day to day. My energy is coming back, skin is great -- I can't believe it.

I think I have finally tapped into what has been ailing me for the past six years and I couldn't be more pleased! I plan to use these products regardless... the "clean" feeling from them is just so great. My husband has been using them too, and we are thrilled!!

Thank you so much!

Best,

Editor’s Note:  Recently I found that Shea Butter contains higher levels of theobromine than cocoa nibs.  I was using Shea Butter for nine months on my legs and experienced insomnia, tiredness during the day, peeing at night, and a headache behind my eyes during the day.  All these symptoms went away after I stopped using Shea Butter as a moisturizer on my legs.

What a Relief to not be in Near Daily Agony!  Migraine Headache Relief 

I would like to tell you that Progestelle is like a magic potion, and the "Brief but Important List" was an eye opener. I am doing much better now that I am following its recommendations and using the progesterone. I pass along the information about Progestelle every chance I get.

I suffered from frequent (almost daily) migraine headaches until I started using Progestelle and following the brief list. What a relief to not be in near daily agony!

Respectfully,

Thank You for Making Such a Wonderful Product!! 

I just wanted to write and let you know how happy I am with Progestelle. I've tried 5 different creams and Progestelle oil. Progestelle is by far the best I've tried. It got rid of my hot flashes completely, helped me feel more calm and helped with my migraines!! Thank you for making such a wonderful product!!

Also, I glanced at the medical form on your site and noticed it even mentioned pesticides and the toothpaste one uses. Do they contain xenoestrogens too? What is it in toothpaste that should be avoided?

Thank you for your help!

It Did Wonders! PMS, Cramps, Fibrocystic Breasts, Headaches Gone! 

Your product has been a great help the few years I've been using it. When I first started using it, I had been having bad P.M.S., cramps and many cysts in my breasts. I got off parabens for the most part and started using the oil. It did wonders! My husband couldn't even tell when I was about to start. Hormone Headaches and profuse underarm sweating were a thing of the past and very light if any hot flashes in the night or breast tenderness.

My question is: I am almost 49 and the past couple of years have had a "regular cycle of 25 days then a break through period two weeks later, then 25 days and two weeks later, etc. My periods were pretty light, lasting maybe 3-4 days. The past few months, they started getting heavier/longer and in January I had a very heavy one lasting over a week. Now this month I was supposed to start on the 10th but have not had a period yet. I usually stop applying the oil the day I start and then wait 8-12 days before applying it again. When should I start/stop applying the oil if I don't have a period? I'm assuming this is part of the menopause process, but want to apply the oil at the proper time to get the most benefit. Thank you for your time,

I have a History of Recurrent Miscarriages @ 4-8 weeks 

My story has been a long 7 year journey.  I have been plagued with weight gain, heavy cycles, severe PMS, PCOS, migraines, acne, mood swings, breast tenderness, and infertility (8 first trimester miscarriages in 7 years) It was heart wrenching to keep feeling like I was dying, knowing there was something going on internally that no doctor could "diagnose." I took matters into my own hands and typed in all of my symptoms into a search engine and up came "estrogen dominance" and natural progesterone for the treatment. While I was researching progesterone, I came across your site and liked the fact that your product did not have all of the added herbs and chemicals of the other "natural" progesterone creams had. I ordered your product and LOVED the buy one get one deal! I used it from ovulation to the beginning of my monthly cycle. I quickly noticed my moodiness disappearing...my acne cleared up, headaches lessened and low and behold within a few months got pregnant. I contacted Dr Eckhart to ask if Progestelle was safe to continue in pregnancy. He assured me it would protect my pregnancy and gave me the dosage recommendations for someone with my history. I continued to use Progestelle until my 6th month and am proud to say I now have a very happy and healthy 3 month old baby boy! Thank you for your support while taking Progestelle! It changed my life! I will continue to use Progestelle and eliminate the use of products on the avoidance list to assure my hormones and body stay in balance! And may even try for baby #2....

Best Regards,

Jody L C

I sent this email over a year ago and am pleased to announce I have a healthy, happy 12 week old baby boy! I started using your oil @ 4 weeks and had a very healthy uncomplicated pregnancy! THANK YOU!!!

I do have a question..can I use this and still breastfeed? I want to keep my hormones balanced and ready to go if we try for baby #2. Are there any side effects or harm for the nursing baby? Thank you!!!

Jody C.

Dr Eckhart,

I have a history of recurrent miscarriages @ 4-8 weeks (6-8 total). I have a history of horribly heavy cycles with heavy bleeding and clotting. I started the use of progesterone cream about 4 months ago. It wasn't your oil at the time and did not feel much of a difference, but pressed on. I found out last week I am pregnant. While I was researching progesterone 2 weeks ago, I came across your site and quickly ordered your product and started it @ 4 weeks pregnant. ( i have been on it one week) I have never made it this far (5 weeks) without spotting, so we are hopeful that this time, we may be successful!

Because of my severity of symptoms, I am opting to use the oil, 3 dropper fulls, 3 times a day. I do have extra weight on me and I was concerned about my absorption, so I wanted to assure I was getting the highest dosage possible. Is this an appropriate dosage for my situation. Also, I do not want to stop the oil until I reach 8 months to assure all is okay.

Does this sound like a good plan to you? Are there any dangers to having too much natural progesterone in early pregnancy? I am in the process of changing my soaps and detergents as we speak and am taking my list of things to avoid with me where ever I go.

Thank you for your information! I have read other testimonials and feel I too will have an amazing story to share in about 9 months!

Best Regards,

Overall I feel so much better. Migraine did NOT Improve


Hi Dr. E.,

Just a quick update..

I have now had 2 normal periods. The first period the hemorrhagic flow stopped. I still had a heavy period, but was not hemorrhaging. My clots were 1/2 of what they were the previous month. The following period was normal. No clots, moderate flow, and no cramps. So, after 5 years of hemorrhaging I have had 2 non-hemorrhagic periods. I'm ecstatic. I believe it is the combination of progestelle and vitamin A.

I am using a very small amount of progestelle - I have used the same bottle for 3 months, and it still has 1/4 left.

My energy is good. I am very pleased. I have recommended your site to another woman with heavy periods.

Migraines are the same, around 20 per month, but they are long-standing (since '92/93) and I am thinking it may be a long term project.

I have almost completely occluded nasal passages (nasal polyp on one side, and the other side healed sealed shut after a nasal polypectomy 20 years ago). My twin brother has had 3 sinus surgeries due to sinus infections and headaches.This may have something to do with my headaches. I can almost never breath through my nose. I am now considering nasal surgery in order to have a functional airway.

I continue to follow the guidelines for laundry det., soap, shampoo, etc.

Overall I feel so much better.

Thanks,

H.L.

Editors Note:  If the Migraine does not vary with the cycle, progesterone will NOT help.  However, it may be that this particular patient may still be using xenoestrogens in her environment that is triggering the migraine.  For more information on how to treat a migraine naturally go to nomigraineheadache.com.

I'm Doing Really Well Thank You. 


I'm doing really well thank you. I've cut down to one dropper full a day now as I do feel a lot better. My periods are not half as bad as they used to be and my migraines are a lot more under control. I still get lethargic but we are living in a really old damp house and I don't think it's doing me any good to be honest.

Thanks so much for asking.

Actually, I am Much Better Now 

Actually, I am much better now that I moved to this product from the progesterone cream. No more night sweats, migraines or mood swings!

My cycle is still unpredictable some months (in arrival date, duration and flow) but I know it's also in part aggravated by traveling and food intolerances.

First Time for Over a Year I did NOT Get a Migraine. Lost Water Retention. My Stomach and Legs Look Less Cellulite-y. Fantastic! 

Dear Mr Eckhart,

I just wanted to let you know that for the first time for over a year I did not get a migraine with the start of my period. I cannot tell you what a relief that was. I still can't get over it! I also have lost some water retention, which I first noticed around my neck area. Now I also see it on my stomach and legs, they look less cellulite-y. Fantastic!

I applied 1 to 2 pipets (20 - 40 mg) at night the moment I felt my breasts getting painful, about 10 days before the start of my period. I wasn't sure if I needed to stop the progesterone first to let my period start, but the period started by itself anyway. I kept applying the progesterone till 2 days after the start of my period, because these are for me the most "dangerous", where I can expect a migraine. I have not felt any adverse effects. I slept good, but I do anyway with my Magnesium I apply on my skin before bed. So thank you very much for all the advice and producing a progesterone that truly is natural. I would definitely recommend this product with confidence to my patients.

Doing Great! I Hardly Ever Get a Headache. 

Doing great! I hardly ever get a headache. Still on progesterone twice a day, every day. Eliminated most chemicals from lotions, etc., am following the "Traditional Nutrition" food lifestyle (by Sally Fallon), never eat out at restaurants, eliminated coffee, but drink tea, let's see, well, can't live without my progesterone and yours is the best because it's more potent, and I love the coconut oil base because coconut oil is so good for you, and thank you very much, Dr. Eckert for continuing to build and support women who need help. It's been what, 5 or so years that I have been ordering from you and every year I feel healthier than the year before. I'm 58 and feel better than I did when I was 35.

I Feel Good.  No Migraine. 

I am still using only 1 pipet in the evening before bed. I have had no migraine yet and also no period. Not eating chocolate. I feel good. In my recent blood test of 17/03 all my hormones are nice and low. Last year my 17-Beta estradiol was nearly 300, now only 57.9 and progesterone is 56, LH 23,80 and FSH 38,80, so I think I am not oestrogen dominant anymore. Or at least, not at this moment in time.

I will keep going a little longer with the Progestelle, just in case and I feel good with it. TSH was 2,18 (range 0,35 - 5,50). They did not check for T4, T3 and Free T4 and Free T3, so I am not really 100% sure if all is ok, but by going by how I feel, I think it is correct. I feel good and have enough energy and motivation.

If this means I am through the peri/ menopause, it has been a very easy transition. I wished I had used this natural progesterone 5 years ago when my first symptoms started (missing periods and weight gain, moodiness). But you think it is nothing to do with beginning the change, I thought it was the heat of living in Southern Spain, since we had recently moved here.

Thank you very much and have a good weekend.

Best wishes,

Janet V.

Editors Note: Most likely the chocolate, caffeine and/or cocoa butter that the patient was using was elevating the patient's estradiol. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine. This particular patient used a soap containing cocoa butter called Black African Soap. The cocoa butter was absorbed directly into the body bypassing the liver. Chocolate taken orally is less of a problem because it is prefiltered by the liver.

 

Xenoestrogens like lavender and tea tree oil mimic estrogen but do not elevate the estradiol.  Lavender and tea tree oil do NOT appear on the hormone test.  I wish there was a hormone test for them, but there is no routine hormone test for lavender and tea tree oil. 

 

In contrast, coffee, chocolate, and cocoa butter elevates estradiol.  The estradiol is elevated and can be seen on the hormone test.

No Migraine, This Month!

Breast cysts and Menstrual Cramps Cured, Menstrual One Sided Migraine Headache Improving! 

Dear Sir,

I have used your product for two months and my symptoms are greatly improved. The cysts were gone after 3 weeks, but returned just before my period with much less force, then gone after 2 days, monthly bloating and mood swings is much improved, cramping is almost gone, periods went from 21 days to 25, and best of all my libido is back as strong as ever. My husband is as thankful as I am. My one sided migraine headaches are better, not as severe, but I am hoping they will soon be gone. They were so bad I had blood in my eyes and face afterwards. The first month after your product the menstrual one sided migraine headache was barely there but lasted 2 days, the 2nd month I forgot and ate oregano and had a hard one but not near as bad as I have in the past, and it was gone the next day.

I just ordered more and I am hoping things will continue to get better.

My 8yr old daughter has been avoiding everything on your list, but so far there is no improvement. I got rid of everything beauty product wise, and I am trying to see that she gets the right foods, but with other people giving her things, when I'm not there, it's hard.

Thank you for your product, and the info.

Menstrual One Sided Migraine Headaches Lessened after 2 Months 

Hi,

I wanted to tell you how happy I am with Progestelle. I have been using it now for just over 2 months and I feel great. I originally started using it to lessen my menstrual one sided migraine headaches and it has really helped. If I get one, it is only one, and mild and goes away in about an hour or so. I'm hoping that they disappear completely as time goes on. Also, my periods are very regular which hasn't been the case for the past 2 years. Definitely the oil. No PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME too!

I also want to tell you how nice it is to have a Dr. who actually responds to your emails and phone calls. You really sound sincere and take the time to explain everything. I've recommended the product to others who I'm sure will experience the same benefits as I have.

Thank you again.

Menstrual One sided Migraine Headaches No More 


Dr. Eckhart,

Just wanted to let you know that I am no longer having headaches with my periods as I had reported to you last. I did purchase a bottle of butterbur as you recommended. I'm happy to say that I did not have to use it. I have had 3 periods over the past 3 months (much more regular than I've been in quite awhile, by the way) and I did not have even a hint of a headache with any of them!

I have moved from the desert in eastern Washington to the west side of the state on the Long Beach peninsula. The reason for my move was because of my love to be near the Pacific Ocean. However, I am hoping that the environment will be healthier in regard to xenoestrogen exposure since I am no longer surrounded by farming and since there is an almost constant breeze of fresh ocean air!

Without a doubt, I will remain a faithful user of Progestelle. Thank you again for all your help.

God bless,

Fibroid Gone. Sex Drive Returns. 

I am very satisfied with the quick results I have achieved using Progestelle for the last 5 months according to your instructions for treating uterine fibroids. I was feeling much improvement after one month, and could not feel my fibroid at all after 3 months.  I am not experiencing any symptoms at all at present.  Thank you so much for your research and clear instructions on what lifestyle changes, supplementation, and products to avoid in addition to the Progestelle.

In addition to the Indole-3-carbinol and bioflavanoid supplementation you recommended, I have added 50 mg Butterbur extract (Solaray) daily which has completely alleviated my menstrual one sided migraine headaches that I have suffered with for over 12 years. I rarely ever have a headache now with the above combination of supplements and the Progestelle.

Thank you again for your wonderful product and professional advice. I am so very grateful not to have any more discomfort, bloating or pressure from uterine fibroids and estrogen dominance.

One major improvement I forgot to mention was that my non-existent sex drive returned within just a few weeks of starting the Progestelle. This was a pleasant surprise.

Sincerely,

Deborah E., Lafayette, CO

What a Huge Relief! 

Of course you may publish it. I am so thankful that I need not go through any invasive procedure and hope women with similar problems would benefit from the right product which is unavailable in my country.

My situation:

(1) Bad MONTHLY BLOATING AND MOOD SWINGS for many years --both pre and post mens migraine headache as well as lower abdomen cramp during mens.

(2) Previous scan report said "Monthly abdomen endometrium appears slightly nodular which may be due to monthly abdomen endometrial hyperplasia or underlying polyps. The thickness of 11mm is still within normal limits. No uterine or adnexal mass present. A corpus luteum is noted within the right ovary." The scan was done in May and I started progestelle in late June till now. The latest scan on 29 August showed EVERYTHING HAS BECOME NORMAL. My slightly bulging stomach has gone down again and I don't feel bloated anymore.

(3) I totally kicked caffeine and switched to conti olive oil soap as well as beauty products without paraben since June as advised.

(4) Also took vitamins B, calcium + E as recommended in the booklet.

I would certainly continue to use Progestelle at a maintenance dose for many, many more months. Thanks for the advice. Noted about pregnancy but no big issue with that as I am still single.

Look forward to getting progestelle with thanks!

I just had my scan result and what a huge relief-----that my monthly abdomen endometrium has gone from 11mm to 4mm!!!!! And the scan shows no other abnormality!!!!! Its truly amazing that I have used progestelle only for 3 months and the problem has cleared up. Indeed, it was a good decision I did not rush into committing to any invasive procedures!!!!

A BIG thank you to you, Dr Eckhart!!!

I am applying progestelle full dose in the 4th month now. Do you advise I could continue it with a maintenance dose the 5th month on? I must say the olive oil base is great, it absolutely did not give me any itch. Progestelle is running very low, would very much appreciate if you could mail the remaining balance to me.

As for my gal friend who is using the double strength I passed it on to her, she is applying only the maintenance dose because beside MONTHLY BLOATING AND MOOD SWINGS, she does not have any problem with her reproductive system, is it ok? Please advise too.

Best,
Meiling L., Singapore Sept. 6, 2006

I went for another follow-up scan a few days ago since the last one in September. Like that of September, the scan shows NO abnormality and my endometrium is 3mm thick which is excellent!!! I attribute it to the continual use of progestelle.

I would like to place order for myself as well as two of my gal friends. As two of them are ordering through me, is it still possible to still enjoy the 1 bottle free for each of them?

These two gal friends of mine only suffer from MONTHLY BLOATING AND MOOD SWINGS. Can they go on just maintenance dose of 1 bottle of olive/grapeseed or 1/2 bottle of double strength every month?

Hear from you soon.

Best,

As I have a clean bill for the past 3 years consecutively, my gynecologist discharged me therefore I have no result to share with you. I am positive I am doing well. I still diligently apply progestelle from day 6-26 every month and am down to the last bottle. Hence, I am placing a fresh order.

Thank you once again for the wonderful product.
cheers,

Within one month I had NO PAIN. 

This is my testimony. This is more than you want probably but chop out anything you don't need. I had the scraping surgery for endometriosis April 16, 2002. In 3 months the pain was back actually worse than before. They put me on birth control pills for 3 years. I didn't realize that the birth control pills allowed the endometriosis to grow unchecked. They basically just reduced the pain somehow and gave me a false sense that I was getting better. By the time I realized I wasn't getting better, but worse, it was everywhere. My gallbladder was removed in 9/2004 and the surgeon took pics of the endometriosis for me. My gyno took one look at the pics and said something had to be done but she wouldn't touch me. I foolishly waited until May 2005 but found a wonderful doctor who did a surgery not considered conventional. He had 20 or 30 years experience in treating endometriosis and someone that had the surgery told me about him. By now:

the pain was intense,
I couldn't hold my urine,
I urinated constantly,
I had a constant headache - nothing made it go away,
My skin hurt to touch it,
I had diarrhea a lot and it would hit with no warning
Depression had started
My joints ached and I was convinced I had lupus or arthritis or cancer.
I couldn't sleep due to the pain and only had 1 week a month that I did NOT have intense pain.

The surgery worked. I was hospitalized for 5 days and wore a catheter for 3 weeks. But over a couple of months - most immediately, the pain went away. I had a life again. There is a 90% success rate with this surgery. But I was the worst he'd ever seen. They cut out part of my small intestine and bladder because the endometriosis had pierced them. They burned off the peritoneum (however you spell it) from all my internal organs. It grows back in 7 days.

Well, about 1 1/2 years later, the pain came back in my bladder area. To urinate was getting painful for about 3 days. Then over 3 months the pain got to the point where walking was painful at times. The pain was probably about a 7. I would be walking and just stop and take a deep breath. I was crying and terrified because surgery wasn't going to help. That was obvious and I almost lost my bladder the first time Dr. Kelly said.

On November 6, 2006 I stopped all xenoestrogens - I went full force - detergent, hair products, food, no makeup. On November 13, 2006 I ordered the Indole 3 Carbinole and started taking it when I received it along with all the other vitamin recommendations. I ordered the Progesterone oil but I am not sure of the date. I started with 1/2 dropperful and now use 1 dropperful a day. Within one month I had NO PAIN. The next month I cheated in small ways - chocolate mainly and some spices. Unfortunately I cooked with a lot of oregano and thyme. I had minor pain (2). My last period was great so I am cheating with a little hairspray right now (this week). My ovarian cysts seem to be better also. They had left for 1 1/2 years as well and started coming back in May 2006. Combined with the endometriosis, the cysts are extremely painful.

I hope you can use some of this. If it's way off base, please let me know and I can do something else. Basically, I was a case that had no hope and your methods seem to have worked with no knives to boot. My gyno is completely for it. Marcy L., Tampa, FL and feel free to use my full name and city. I don't mind at all. I talk to a lot of women about endometriosis because no one cares to research it or treat it and it's a horrible that can rob your life. It almost took mine. I will always be grateful to Dr. Kelly for cutting it out and you for keeping it from growing back.

Fibroid Gone. Sex Drive Returns


I am very satisfied with the quick results I have achieved using Progestelle for the last 5 months according to your instructions for treating uterine fibroids. I was feeling much improvement after one month, and could not feel my fibroid at all after 3 months.I am not experiencing any symptoms at all at present.Thank you so much for your research and clear instructions on what lifestyle changes, supplementation, and products to avoid in addition to the Progestelle.

In addition to the Indole-3-carbinol and bioflavanoid supplementation you recommended, I have added 50 mg Butterbur extract (Solaray) daily which has completely alleviated my menstrual one sided migraine headaches that I have suffered with for over 12 years. I rarely ever have a headache now with the above combination of supplements and the Progestelle.

Thank you again for your wonderful product and professional advice. I am so very grateful not to have any more discomfort, bloating or pressure from uterine fibroids and estrogen dominance.

One major improvement I forgot to mention was that my non-existent sex drive returned within just a few weeks of starting the Progestelle. This was a pleasant surprise.

Sincerely,

MONTHLY BLOATING AND MOOD SWINGS and Menstrual Cramping Going Away 

I wanted to say 'Thank you'. All of the info I have received both in the booklet with my first order, as well as several emails back and forth with you have been so valuable! I have started using only Bare Essentials/Minerals makeup, and my skin has never looked better.

I also now know what to avoid as far as preservatives/herbs and the difference has been phenomenal! I am no longer having any mid-cycle pain, my cycle has returned to normal, with minimal to no cramping. There is no longer any water weight retention or headaches, and no uterine pain or breast tenderness whatsoever at any point in any recent cycles! I am so happy! My weight has also returned to where I would like it to be without any dieting or diet changes at all. I feel wonderful! Thank you!

And, all this with just the modifications. I have not yet even begun to use the progesterone.

I am wondering about Ylang Ylang. I know lavender and chamomile were mentioned as ones to avoid, and I do. I did some research online regarding Ylang Ylang and noticed it's also listed as having estrogenic activity. I did want to double check this with you, as there is a hair conditioner which contains this, and I will definitely be avoiding this if this is true concerning Ylang Ylang.

Thank you in advance, and again, thank you!

Menstrual One Sided Migraine headaches Gone 

Dr. Eckhart,

Just wanted to let you know that I am no longer having headaches with my periods as I had reported to you last. I did purchase a bottle of butterbur as you recommended. I'm happy to say that I did not have to use it. I have had 3 periods over the past 3 months (much more regular than I've been in quite awhile, by the way) and I did not have even a hint of a headache with any of them!

I have moved from the desert in eastern Washington to the west side of the state on the Long Beach peninsula. The reason for my move was because of my love to be near the Pacific Ocean. However, I am hoping that the environment will be healthier in regard to xenoestrogen exposure since I am no longer surrounded by farming and since there is an almost constant breeze of fresh ocean air!

Without a doubt, I will remain a faithful user of Progestelle. Thank you again for all your help.

God bless,

Menstrual One Sided Migraine Headaches Decreased after 2 months 

Hi,

I wanted to tell you how happy I am with Progestelle. I have been using it now for just over 2 months and I feel great. I originally started using it to lessen my menstrual one sided migraine headaches and it has really helped. If I get one, it is only one, and mild and goes away in about an hour or so. I'm hoping that they disappear completely as time goes on. Also, my periods are very regular which hasn't been the case for the past 2 years. Definitely the oil. No PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME too!

Natural Progesterone help for monthly moodiness and monthly bloatingI also want to tell you how nice it is to have a Dr. who actually responds to your emails and phone calls. You really sound sincere and take the time to explain everything. I've recommended the product to others who I'm sure will experience the same benefits as I have.

Thank you again.

Healthy Baby Boy! Migraine and Miscarriage

In my family, we have a genetic history of losing a baby over the age of 30 for those of us who suffer from headaches, especially one sided migraine headaches. I get one sided migraine headaches, and I had my first child in my late 20's, with no problems.

I tried to get pregnant again at age 30, and ended up conceiving 8 times, and dumping them every month. One actually stuck for a week, then I miscarried. I tried a low-dosage progesterone prescribed by my Naturopathic Doctor, but it didn't work. I turned to Chinese Medicine, and after 5 treatments, I was pregnant with twins. I didn't continue the treatments, and ended up miscarrying one twin at 11 weeks. I gave birth to the other twin, my daughter, at term.

I got pregnant again before she turned 2, and carried him to 15 weeks. He died in utero, and I carried him for 2 weeks, unaware that he was dead until I miscarried.

I decided to research losing baby and one sided migraine headaches, and came upon the Women's Therapeutic Institute, and Dr. John Lee's information. I took Progestelle for one month, and on the second month, while taking Progestelle, I was pregnant. I continued to take Progestelle every day, and stopped on my 8 month day of pregnancy. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at term, 3 days before my due date. He is beautiful, strong, and very smart.

I started taking progesterone again 2 months post-partum, while breast feeding full-time, with the advise of my doctor. I noticed an immediate difference in my behavior, and emotions. I felt balanced and had more energy, and I slept better. My baby's behavior stayed the same. The progesterone has no effect on him. I hope my experience helps others who are suffering from losing babies. Progesterone really does work.

Thanks for reading my story.
