Don’t Take Progesterone Based on Your Diagnosis Alone

Mental Health

I’m confident hormonal imbalances are causing a large percentage of mental illness cases.

Steroid hormones (such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone) are essential to proper brain and adrenal gland function. So doesn’t it make sense that diseases of the brain and adrenal glands are linked to steroid hormones?

The late Dr. John Lee was a pioneer in the field of hormone balance. He found a cluster of symptoms linked to low progesterone levels. These symptoms can be found here: Progesterone Deficiency List.

I work as a mental health worker. Part of my job is visiting state mental institutions (hospitals). Many of the hospital residents have symptoms on Dr. Lee’s list.

They have thyroid disorders, digestive diseases, autoimmune diseases, fibrocystic breasts, cystic ovaries, migraines, blood sugar problems, gallbladder disease, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, allergies, menstrual irregularities, and excessive abdominal fat.

Dr. Lee said that once one learns what a progesterone deficiency looks like, it becomes very easy to recognize.

I lived with one my entire life, so it’s easy for me to see it in others.

Many of the people I’ve met, with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, have the symptoms on Dr. Lee’s list. I feel confident in saying at least 80% of the people I’ve met have the deficiency. And I have seen hundreds of mentally ill people.

That’s startling.

In my book, I don’t suggest that people take progesterone based on their mental health diagnosis. I encourage them to take progesterone only if they need it ( if they are showing symptoms or if their levels are measurably low).
