John R. Lee, M.D. treated Fibrocystic breasts successfully with natural progesterone!
WHAT ARE FIBROCYSTIC BREASTS?
The term Fibrocystic Breast Disease refers to a benign (non-cancerous) condition of the breasts and is not really a disease. Women with fibrocystic breasts have dense or fibrous breast tissue which may appear like clumps of grapes when seen on a mammogram. Often there are soft, moveable lumps that can be felt in the breast tissue. These can get very tender and even painful around the time of the menstrual period. Fibrocystic breast disease is not a precursor to breast cancer; this is a benign condition even though it is very uncomfortable. Usually the pain and soreness is in the front of the breasts and over the nipples, a sign of high estrogen. (Pain at the sides of the breasts under the armpits is usually an indication that ovulation has occurred.)
What's going on in your body?
The common factor found in women with fibrocystic breasts is a higher level of circulating estrogen, indicating a hormonal imbalance. Estrogen dominance stimulates the growth of breast tissue and the retention of fluids. Progesterone can help to balance the level of estrogen in the body which reduces breast pain. Almost all of the women I talked to found that the lumps themselves would disappear!
- Research showed progesterone can relieve 95% of breast pain from fibrocystic breasts.
- The active ingredient diosgenin (from the wild yam) increases circulating progesterone levels to balance the effects of excess estrogen.
HOW FAST CAN YOU FEEL RELIEF?
In most women we talk to, fibrocystic breasts respond to progesterone therapy in about 3-4 months, but relief can occur within the first month because breast tissue is extremely sensitive to hormones.
