Things You Didn’t Know About Progessence Plus

PROGESSENCE PLUS

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This may be the most important product that Young Living has. Top 5, for sure. It is essential for women to understand what this is and how it can help their bodies at all stages of life, from their first cycle through their fertile years and all the way through menopause. Ladies – for our quality of life and for our families, HEAR THIS, it is important.

Let’s talk hormones!

……………………………………………………..

First up is progesterone. 

What it is: Progesterone plays a role in maintaining pregnancy. (If you’ve had difficulty in this area, PLEASE take heart and listen to the hope that is going to be offered). Progesterone is produced in the ovaries, the placenta (when a woman gets pregnant) and the adrenal glands. It helps prepare your body for conception and pregnancy and regulates the monthly menstrual cycle. It also plays a role in sexual desire.

……………………………………………………..

Too much progesterone:

High progesterone levels are believed to be partly responsible for symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as breast tenderness, feeling bloated and mood swings. When you skip a period, it could be because of failure to ovulate and subsequent low progesterone levels.

Too much progesterone can also cause breast tenderness, depression, fatigue, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, and more. Causes include low estrogen levels found in menopause.

……………………………………………………..

Not enough progesterone: 

Without enough progesterone to complement it, estrogen may become the dominant hormone. This may lead to a variety of symptoms, including:
• weight gain
• decreased sex drive, mood swings, and depression
• PMS, irregular menstrual cycle, heavy bleeding
• breast tenderness, fibrocystic breasts
• gallbladder problems
thyroid dysfunction

Basically, things start to hit the fan for us women when our hormones are out of whack. And this is just the beginning! Listen up.

……………………………………………………..

Moving on to estrogen!

“Estrogen” is the group of estrogenic hormones are uniquely responsible for the growth and development of female sexual characteristics and reproduction in both humans and animals. The term “estrogen” includes a group of chemically similar hormones: estrone, estradiol (the most abundant in women of reproductive age) and estriol. Overall, estrogen is produced in the ovaries, adrenal glands and fat tissues. More specifically, the estradiol and estrone forms are produced primarily in the ovaries in premenopausal women, while estriol is produced by the placenta during pregnancy.

Stay with me.

In women, estrogen circulates in the bloodstream and binds to estrogen receptors on cells in targeted tissues, affecting not only the breasts and uterus, but also the brain, bone, liver, heart and other tissues.

……………………………………………………..

Not enough estrogen:

When estrogen levels are low, as in menopause, the vagina can become drier and the vaginal walls thinner, making sex painful.
Additionally, the lining of the urethra, the tube that brings urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, thins. A small number of women may experience an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs) that can be improved with the use of vaginal estrogen therapy.

Oh, and all this junk too:

– Hot flashes
-Fatigue
-Headaches/migraines
-Night sweats
-Vaginal and/or bladder infections
-Incontinence
-UTIs
-Forgetfulness
-Insomnia
-Poor concentration
-Decreased verbal skills
-Irregular bleeding
-Testosterone imbalance (which leads to a host of other problems)
-Lower libido
-Osteoperosis
-Rapid heartbeat
-Depression
-Anxiety
-Emotional instability
-Feelings of despair
-Crying easily

……………………………………………………..

When you have too much estrogen, that’s no bueno either. (Are you seeing our body’s need for BALANCE?!)

Symptoms of high estrogen include:
• bloating
• swelling and tenderness in the breasts
• decreased sex drive
• irregular menstrual periods
• headaches
• mood swings
• fibrocystic developments in the breast
• weight gain
• hair loss
• cold hands or feet
• feeling tired or lacking energy
• difficulty with memory
• trouble sleeping
increased symptoms of premenstrual syndrome or PMS

……………………………………………………..

For our fertility, for our HAPPINESS, for our body’s overall function, we NEED to be in balance. Our families will thank us. 

That is where Progessence Plus comes into play. 

Every woman should be using this serum. Every. Single. Woman. 

……………………………………………………..

Dr. Haggerton laid out exactly what Progessence Plus is. It’s a serum. It is made up of:

-Miconized progesterone from wild yam complex

-Vitamin E (antioxidant)

-Essential oil blend, including: peppermint, copaiba, frankincense, bergamot, clove, cedarwood, and rosewood

-Coconut oil

It is better than other progesterone creams because:
-it contains no synthetic crap that does more harm than good
-The delivery system (essential oils help it to give us a higher absorption rate)
-You don’t have to constantly change up the application

He recommends putting it on our wrists and either side of our neck.

A little more about the ingredients:

Wild yam complex is INCREDIBLE for women on its own. You should read up on it here: http://natural-fertility-info.com/reproductive-system-suppo….

Coconut oil is BANANAS in all that is can do for ALL HUMANS. I highly suggest the book “The Coconut Oil Miracle” for anyone wanting to learn more about it. It has made me dead set on getting coconut oil into my family’s bodies every single day.

Vitamin E oil rocks for all kinds of things, including:
-Anti-aging
-Scars
-Dryness
-Sunburns
-Stretch marks
-I could literally go on and on

The essential oils in this are SO worth looking up individually to see all that they can do for our bodies. 
-Peppermint
-Copaiba
-Frankincense
-Bergamot
-Clove
-Cedarwood
-Rosewood 

It is a KILLER line up of oils, and if you haven’t read up on them in your Essential Oils Pocket Reference Guide, you should. Really really really, you should, and please share what you read with other women.
