Discussion of progesterone and prostate cancer related problems and other progesterone for men solutions such as BPH (swelling of the prostate) relieved from natural progesterone cream.
Studies show that estrogen, specifically estradiol, actually causes prostate cancer and breast cancer.
Let me explain how estrogen relates to progesterone and prostate cancer.
Men also make estrogen and estradiol, but in much lower amounts than women. The male hormone, testosterone, is antagonist to estradiol.
Testosterone prevents estradiol from causing prostate cancer by destroying the prostate cancer cells it stimulates.
Testosterone does not cause prostate cancer.
Males also produce progesterone, although about half as much as females do. The progesterone prevents the body from converting testosterone to di-hydro testosterone.
Male progesterone levels decrease with age just much like women. In women, progesterone levels decease starting at about the age of 35. For men, this startsabout ten years later.
When progesterone levels decrease, the male's 5 alpha reductase converts the testosterone to di-hydro testosterone which is useless at removing the prostate cancer cells that estradiol stimulates.
Estradiol also stimulates the enlargement of the prostate
Estradiol allows the prostate gland to swell and enlarge. In many instances this transforms into prostate cancer.
The prostate is embryo logically similar to the female uterus. Prostate cancer is the #1 cancer in men. Prostate enlargement is a major cause of problems in elderly men. Progesterone appears to be a simple, safe and inexpensive solution to prevent and treat this problem.
Natural progesterone for men and cancer prevention
Progesterone helps protect against fibrocystic breast disease and also helps protect against breast cancer.
Breast cancer cells do not multiply when women are on progesterone.
These hormones also worked for cancer of the ovary and uterus and small cell lung cancer which is normally a very difficult cancer to treat with a horribly dismal diagnosis.
Men should seriously consider natural progesterone replacement sometime around their early 40s, or even earlier if they have a family history of prostate cancer. Progesterone is also likely to decrease male balding.
By the time men reach the age of 50, 35% have cancer cells in their prostate. 2 to 1 are the odds a man will have prostate problems by the time they reach 60 years old.
Men should be familiar with natural progesterone because it's important for alleviating symptoms associated with enlarged prostate along with enhancing libido, improve energy, stamina and endurance.
The rationale for treatment is in understanding that estrogen is a growth stimulating hormone in prostate tissue. This leads to the hypothesis that the balance of estradiol to progesterone and/or to testosterone is an important factor in prostate disease.
As men age, prostate levels of estradiol gradually rise, and levels of progesterone and testosterone decline. The decline in testosterone and progesterone levels is greater than the rise of estradiol.
Progesterone plays several roles in the protection against prostate disease.
Progesterone inhibits the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
DHT is a weaker androgen than testosterone, and thus lowers the androgen/estrogen ratio in favor of estrogen.
In addition, DHT is a far more potent stimulant of prostate cell growth than testosterone.
With this said, progesterone helps raise testosterone levels and helps lower the level of the more growth stimulating DHT. Progesterone, like testosterone, is an anabolic hormone, meaning that it helps burn fat for energy.
Progesterone treatment should be considered for overweight men.
Progesterone therapy is especially relevant for obese men with a family history of prostate cancer. Also, progesterone for men with proven
low androgen/low progesterone/high estrogen levels.
