Excerpts from "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause" by Dr. John R. Lee, M.D. If a three month trial of progesterone plus proper diet and supplements of magnesium and Vitamin B6 do not relieve hot flashes or vaginal dryness, then a low dose of natural estrogen may be helpful.
All the available evidence we have so far indicates that estriol is the safest estrogen to use to control menopausal symptoms, and that it may even be protective against breast cancer. If you need to supplement some estrogen, you can use a natural estriol. Excerpts from "Estriol, the Forgotten Estrogen?" The Journal of the American Medical Association. In our country, it has been labeled as a weak or ineffective estrogen and difficult if not impossible to obtain. Actually it is not weak if given in adequate doses. A dose of 2 to 4 mg is the equivalent of .6 to 1.25 mg of conjugated estrogen and is just as effective.
It has been available in Europe for many years. Importantly, estriol does not lose its unique identity, as does estradiol. It remains estriol. Our Estrogen oil is formulated to be used vaginally. The blend of natural oils is designed to moisturize the tissue of the vagina and deliver the Estriol USP directly where it is most needed.
Suggested Application: Two pumps on hand or finger to be applied vaginally. 2 pumps = 1/8 teaspoon = .625 ml = 1 mg Estriol USP. Use the least amount possible to control symptoms. Use in conjunction with a natural progesterone creme. Caution: not recommended during pregnancy or lactation.
