Hormones are Unbelievably Powerful
These glandular secretions have dramatic effects on our emotions, how our bodies function, heal and age.
Hormones were designed to bring perfect balance to our lives. But today we are
are bombarded with false estrogen hormones from our environment. These xenoestrogens attach to the same hormone receptor sites as natural estrogen and testosterone, upset hormone balance, and contribute to nearly every difficult symptom of our adult lives, from PMS & vaginal dryness to erectile dysfunction, loss of muscular strength, even mood swings, irritability, headaches and sleep cycles are influenced by hormones.
Xenoestrogens are everywhere - in the foods we eat, the shampoos we use, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.
It's no wonder that hormone therapy is a hot topic on television, the radio, magazines and doctor offices. Instead of drugs, stick by Mother Nature and her empirical, original design of what makes the body work properly.
The Dangers of Surgical Convenience
Tubal Ligation and Vasectomies are convenient surgeries for permanent birth control, eliminating the worry of unwanted pregnancies. But what about the disruption of hormone production? In women, the ovaries secrete the hormones estrogen and progesterone. In men, the prostate and testicles release the essential male hormone, testosterone.
Sure, doctors will tell you not to worry, that hormone production is not connected with the tubes leading from the ovaries or testes being severed, but often hormone production does decline, particularly progesterone and testosterone, resulting in estrogen dominance, which can lead to:
- Mood swings, irritability, depression, headaches
- Swelling and fluid retention
- Loss of libido and drive
- Losing muscular strength, stamina, feeling tired more often
- Insomnia or inability to enter deep, REM sleep
- Lack of motivation, feeling discontent
Considering all of this, it seems crazy that people would willingly interrupt their hormone-producing organs. Yet we do it all the time.
We are only now just beginning to understand the connection between these sterilization surgeries and the side effects of reduced progesterone and testosterone hormonal production, placing the body into a condition called estrogen dominance.
For men, science has long debated whether vasectomies increases the risk of prostate cancer. I personally believe it must, as prostate cancer is now epidemic! Most men over 60 have prostate cancer and don't even know it. New studies on two large groups of men show a correlation that men with vasectomies have a 66% higher rate of prostate cancer compared to men who rejected the operation.
Why? I believe that as sperm builds up in the sealed-off sanctum, these hormone-laden cells get reabsorbed by the bloodstream, confusing the body's immune system, making it difficult to recognize a cancer cell and destroy it.
A hysterectomy, where the uterus is removed to alleviate heavy bleeding, uterine fibroids, or something even more serious, can also impact hormone production, as the ovaries share blood supply with the uterus.
Prescription hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drugs like Premarin and Prempro have consistently been found to increase the risk of cancer in women.

Transdermal vs. Oral Hormone Replacement Therapy
I strongly believe in the transdermal or topical delivery method for hormone therapy, because our bodies were created to release hormones directly into our bloodstream, and only the transdermal method does this.
Transdermal: where the active ingredients are absorbed topically through the skin
Oral: where the active ingredients are swallowed in a pill or capsule
Hormones taken orally are required to pass through your digestive tract and be metabolized by your liver. This causes a huge burden on the liver and is inefficient, with only about 10% of the hormone getting into your bloodstream.
This is why our hormone replacement formulas are custom formulated as topical creams. A very small amount of cream is applied directly to the skin - and nearly all of it absorbs and enters the bloodstream within a few minutes!
For Women - Progesterone Boost
If you've been pregnant, you understand all too well the effect of fluctuating hormones. Throughout life, a woman's natural production of progesterone and estrogen fluctuates every month, causing mood swings, memory loss, night sweats, insomnia, loss of libido, tender breasts and weight gain.
This imbalance is mostly caused by estrogen dominance from our environment.
Too much estrogen causes the body to retain fat, rather than burning it as metabolic energy. Excess estrogen also interferes with thyroid function and thyroid hormone production, causing loss of energy, fatigue and drop in metabolism - which all contribute to weight gain and the inability to lose it.
Progesterone can usually balance the negative effects of excess estrogen by neutralizing and flushing it out. However, the chronic stress of our modern lifestyles uses up the majority of the body's available progesterone, leaving little to none of this hormone to correct the estrogen overload.
- Stress triggers the release of Cortisol, increasing adrenaline
- Adrenaline uses progesterone, leading to progesterone deficiency
- Progesterone deficiency creates estrogen dominance
Sadly most women don’t realize the physical and emotional changes as we age simply don't have to be; vaginal dryness, hot flashes, decreased libido, mood swings, depression and weight gain. These all seem like the normal symptoms of pre-, peri-, and post-menopause. Too many women accept these symptoms as part of life and aging, until they become unbearable.
Unfortunately most medical doctors are not trained in natural hormone therapy, so the commonly prescribed pharmaceutical treatments only further imbalance hormonal levels!
We’ve developed an all-natural, plant-based progesterone cream to help flush away excess estrogen and bring your hormone levels to a balanced, healthy place.
Phyto-Progesterone (meaning plant-based progesterone) is produced by a saponin found in many plants like Wild Mexican Yams and Soy called Diosgenis. Diosgenis is bio-identical to the progesterone produced by our own body. Because it is the same, the body recognizes it as natural, not synthetic, and is highly effective in battling the symptoms of hormone imbalances.
Our all-natural, Bio-Identical USP Progesterone cream contains 500mg of progesterone per fl oz, or approximately 20mg per 1/2 tsp serving, blended with vitamins A, B-complex, C and E, along with aloe vera and grapefruit seed extract.
There are no recorded side effects from phyto-progesterone, and studies have shown that natural, plant-based progesterone may help osteoblast function, which is integral in bone rebuilding – vital for post-menopausal women!
I am so grateful for this product!! Between memory loss, mood swings, and hot flashes I was at my wits end! Then I found this product, it has made me feel normal again and it was only a couple days of using before I really felt a difference! I highly recommend this product, it has done wonders for me!!!
- Kimberly, TX
Although I'm fairly new to this product I have noticed less cravings during my cycle, better energy, and decreased mood swings. I had some breast tenderness when I started, but that subsided by month 3, so don't give up! - Lisa, MI
Suggested Usage: Apply 1/2 tsp on thinner skin 1-2 times daily. Use 3 weeks on, 1 week off. (Each woman's biochemistry and ability to absorb and use the cream is different and your dose may vary.)

For Men - Testosterone Boost
Testosterone production in men begins to naturally decline about 1%
annually starting around age 30, and more rapidly when we reach 60.
testosterone the body produces is influenced by many factors. A diet
heavy in saturated fat, processed foods with preservatives, refined
sugar and hydrogenated oils all contribute to reduced production.
imbalance also occurs when vital minerals like copper, zinc and
selenium are lacking in our diet. Selenium in particular helps to
protect the male hormone glands from free radicals and aids testosterone
Just like women, men are also impacted by
xenoestrogens in our environment, as these fake estrogens compete with
testosterone for the same receptor sites. In addition, elevated estrogen
levels contribute to slowing down production of testosterone. Chemical
toxins, foreign compounds, alcohol consumption and smoking, all impact
testosterone levels, leading to low sperm count and testicular cancer.
talked earlier of how emotional stress increases cortisol, which in
turn affects the adrenal hormone called DHEA. In males, when DHEA is
limited, so is testosterone production.
Low testosterone in men
leads to weight gain, hair loss, low blood sugar, depression,
interrupted sleep patterns, loss of libido, even impotence.
bodybuilders abused testosterone decades ago, it is now illegal to purchase
or use testosterone without a prescription. Our
formula does not contain testosterone, instead it is an all-natural
herbal cream with extracts proven to support the body’s ability to produce vital
Testosterone supports lean muscle development,
increased libido, increased energy and stamina, tighter, more youthful
looking skin and reduced signs of aging. Testosterone is required for
maintaining bone density and blood sugar levels as well as creating a
more positive outlook on life!
With regular use, Testosterone
Boost may help your body restore your normal testosterone levels, helping you to turn back the hands of time.
I've noticed increased energy, libido, lean mass and improved body composition. On a more personal note, I’m feeling a bit more confident than before. I’m walking a little taller and when I’m exercising I have more drive (some circles refer to it as an Alpha feeling). I can feel the Testosterone Boost cream working within minutes of applying. - Chris, PA
I’ve been using the Testosterone Cream for 4 months now. I workout daily and have noticed a significant increase in muscle development and my recovery time is very quick, as if I am in my 20's. My libido is sky-high and as a bonus, I've lost 2" off my waist! - Dale, CO
Apply 1/4 tsp. to thin skin areas and anywhere you blush twice daily, and
30 minutes before sexual activity. Use 3 weeks on, 1 week off.

Further Tips & Suggestions
- Avoid meat, milk, and eggs from animals injected with growth hormones. Watch the movie Food, Inc. and you'll never eat mass-produced beef, pork, lamb, chicken, or eggs again!
local, organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible! If the produce
at your store looks giant compared to typical fruit, you've gotta wonder
if the orchard was sprayed with growth hormones and fertilized with
manure from cows and chickens injected with hormones. Read
