How safe is the use of bioidentical Progesterone supplementation?
Dr. Katarina Dalton, MD, PhD, of Great Britain, has been using bio identical progesterone to treat PMS in doses up to 2400 mg per day since 1953. During the next year, she will be publishing a retrospective study of her patients which shows that these women reported fewer surgeries and fewer cancers and better quality of life than women who were not treated. Great Britain’s medicine is socialized, so it is easy to track these patients. In the United States, John R. Lee, MD has been prescribing and recommending the use of transdermal bio identical progesterone for over 30 years. He has written three books about the use of hormonal supplementation using bio identical progesterone. It is rumored that, with biochemist Dr. David Zava, he is publishing a book this spring which suggests that the use of bio identical Progesterone may help protect women from breast cancer.
