I’m commenting on this page about Papaya/papain enzyme warnings in relation to the info on Progesterone. I am enthusiastic about using the greenish papaya and seeds on a periodic basis for parasite cleansing, and following the protocol frequency mentioned but have some concern about the potential negative effect on body progesterone levels. For the last 6 years or so and I’m 60 now, I use progesterone cream (the only very good organic one from Organic Excellence) on a 3 week on, 1 week off basis. Older people, even men can benefit from some progesterone in its natural form as our bodies make much less or none as we age. Of course, everyone will be different in how much papain and periodic use of the parasite smoothie will affect their progesterone levels but just wondering if you have more info on specifics of that in particular? The idea I came up with is to drink or start a 4 day course of papaya smoothie for parasites during the progesterone off week, then only 1 or 2 the following week, skip and repeat after 2 weeks. There must be a way to have it all, but I think for most women using papain enzymes on any regular basis would not be a good idea as the effects of estrogen dominance and low progesterone is something to be avoided or remedied if one has that imbalance (likely in case of PMS).
My doctor put me on a natural progesterone cream and it made me feel horrible. I was only taking it once a day/ 1 pump which seemed like a lot.
I was breaking out all over my body and very oily. My hair became extremely limp and thin and I felt depressed... not myself emotionally. Is there a secret to taking this? Or is there any other product that might work better for me?
My saliva tests showed that my progesterone levels are very low, so I am already having a ton of other yucky symptoms. The cream just seemed to send me over the edge. Is this normal? Also, I have never been on HRT and I am 36 years old.
Thanks for any info.
