Serenity Natural Progesterone Cream

Women that use Serenity report symptoms relieved and quality of life restored, without the side effects often experienced with common HRT treatments.

Usage

Wellsprings Serenity should be applied morning and bedtime to the fatty tissue areas of the body where it is stored as needed: thighs, hips, buttocks, or upper arms and lower abdomen. It is important to massage the cream into a different area each time.

We recommend using a double dosage (1/4 teaspoon instead of 1/8 teaspoon) of cream for the first month of application. Also, please ensure you finish the full jar of your cream to allow time for your hormone levels to stabilise and symptoms to be properly treated.

Usage Overview

A healthy woman will naturally manufacture 20-25mg of progesterone per day in the second half of her monthly cycle and the intention is to deliver this same amount of natural progesterone into the system with the cream.

An eighth-teaspoon of Serenity contains 15mg of natural progesterone, so one application in the morning and one at bed-time will constitute a dosage of 30mg per day which, allowing for some wastage, will deliver the required net dose of 20-25mg per day; the same as should be produced naturally.

If symptoms are severe you may use a quarter-teaspoon mornings and evenings, but all women are different and dosage should be assessed and modified by each individual through their own experience over a period of time.

Each jar contains over 90 eighth-teaspoon applications so a jar should last about 3 months for those having periods and 2 months for those on the menopausal 24 day regime.
Applying Cream
 
 
Apply Serenity to the fatty tissue areas of the body, rotating application areas to maximise absorption.
 Top Tip
 
How to measure 1/8th of a teaspoon
 
Dab the underside of your little finger halfway to the nail (just as a face cream). The amount is about the size of a garden pea.
 
FAQ

Why hasn't my doctor prescribed natural progesterone?
Natural progesterone has in fact been prescribed since the 1930s and a growing number of doctors are now recommending it.

The major pharmaceutical companies market HRT treatments that contain artificial hormones that they can patent and are profitable. The resources of these companies has enabled them to position them as the standard prescription for menopause symptoms and other conditions of hormonal imbalance despite increasing reports of their side effects. *

What are the conditions natural progesterone can benefit?
Natural progesterone is most commonly used to treat both short and long term symptoms associated with Oestrogen Dominance.

During menopause these symptoms include:

- Hot flushes
- Mood Swings & Depression
- Water retention
- Breast swelling and pain
- Heavy or irregular periods
- Uterine fibroids
- Weight gain, particularly around hips and thighs

One of the prime long term conditions associated with oestrogen dominance is osteoporosis. Natural Progesterone can be an effective treatment for this condition. *

What is natural progesterone?
Natural progesterone, also known as bioidentical progesterone, is 100% the same as the progesterone hormone produced naturally in the body. As such it is treated by the body the same way and can perform all the functions of the body's own progesterone.

Prescribed since the 1930s, it is used to treat menopause related symptoms and other conditions associated with hormone imbalance.

It is important to recognise the difference between natural progesterone and the artificial progesterones (progestins) used in common HRT treatments. While in some ways progestins perform in the same manner as natural progesterone they are in fact chemically different and thus not treated by the body the same way. This is believed to be behind the reported side effects of common HRT treatments. *

>> What is Oestrogen Dominance?
Why does Serenity contain just progesterone and no oestrogen?
Specialists have identified that a deficiency in progesterone in relation to oestrogen is at the root of most women's hormonal complaints.

Doctors such as Dr John R Lee, who prescribed natural progesterone for 30 years and wrote extensively about its benefits, demonstrated that supplementing progesterone alone, in its natural form, is what most sufferers require in order for health and wellbeing to be restored. *

How can a cream get natural progesterone into my body?
'Transdermal application' is the method of delivering substances into the body through the skin. It is used in products such as nicotine patches and pain-killing gels.

When taken orally, natural progesterone gets removed almost entirely by the liver. When applied in cream form over 90% of the progesterone content is absorbed. *

What is the difference between Serenity and conventional HRT treatments?
Most conventional HRT treatments prescribed to treat progesterone deficiency employ chemically modified, artificial progesterones known as progestins. While performing in some ways like natural progesterone, these substances are alien to the body and not treated the same way. This is believed to be behind the reported side effects of conventional HRT treatments. *
