Bone density reduces greatly during menopause
It is believed that modern lifestyles and eating habits combined with environmental pollutants are largely to blame for a general decline in bone quality amongst mature, western adults.
In a major archaeological dig in London, England, hundreds of bodies dating back almost 300 years were recovered. Detailed autopsies were carried out to learn about the lifestyle and health of the population of that time. An article in the authoritative medical journal, The Lancet, stated results revealed bone density significantly greater than that of people today.
A number of studies have shown that progesterone, particularly in its natural form, can lead to significant bone formation. Dr John R. Lee MD, who spent over 20 years prescribing and studying natural progesterone, dedicated much of that time to researching its effectiveness in treating osteoporosis.
His studies showed a 15% average increase in bone marrow density amongst post-menopausal women using transdermal progesterone cream over a 3 year period. This contrasts sharply with the average 5% drop in bone density experienced by women taking no treatment at all.
The conclusions he drew from his work and from first hand experience in private practice offer great hope to potential sufferers.
"Post-menopausal osteoporosis is a disease of inadequate osteoblast-mediated new bone formation secondary to progesterone deficiency. Progesterone restores osteoblast function. Natural progesterone hormone is an essential factor in the proper treatment of osteoporosis."
Dr John R. Lee MD.
