Natural Progesterone and DHEA Options

Healthy hormones can be the difference between sleeping well, and walking the floors at night – between having hot flashes and mood swings, and feeling “normal.”

It can help women who have hormonal imbalance and the laundry list of complaints that go with that.

Taking hormones by mouth, in pill form, is more risky (stroke), even if bioidentical.

Taking bioidentical hormones topically is a better way to go.


I personally found balance using Progessence, super-micronized progesterone from wild yam is melted in vitamin E and essential oils for optimal absorption.

Studies indicate that limonene from frankincense and bergamot and menthol from peppermint oil can enhance substance penetration through the skin.

Progessence Plus does not require the cycling of application sites.

Ingredients: Copaiba oil, Sacred frankincense oil, Cedarwood oil, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Tocopherol, Bergamot oil (Furocoumarin-free), Peppermint oil, USP-grade progesterone (from wild yam extract), Clove bud oil.

Now Available: At-Home Saliva Hormone Test Kit!

Secondly, I use DHEA cream, a building block hormone – that let’s the body decide how to use it.

DHEA is a building block to allow the body to make 50 other hormones as needed like estrogen, testosterone and more.)

Start with Progessence for a few weeks. Try 2-4 drops over your throat at bedtime, then you can try adding DHEA after that. 

Hormonal balance is a beautiful thing!
