Raising progesterone?

Discussion in 'Heal Your Hormones' started by omegajosh, Oct 25, 2015.

    It is obvious that my adrenal issues are holding back my recovery at the moment and are at the crux of my problems. Jack says that for chronically depressed cortisol one of the most important steps is to re-establish progesterone levels. Can anyone (including Jack) tell me the best way of doing this? Would pregnenelone supplementation be preferred to progesterone?

    cortisol, pregnenolone, progesterone, DHEAs
    are steroid hormones.
    There is many other steroid hormones.
    But if you would take healthy person,
    measure his commonly measured steroid hormones,
    took all of them and treated as 100% by weight
    you will find big differences in their participation
    DHEAs -- 94.5%
    cortisol(AM) -- 4.25%
    all the rest take what is left
    It makes good sense to mind this two hormones with special care.

    Cortisol is made in adrenals, so it becomes first suspect.
    Most often it is declared fatigued, sick.
    That is bad assumption most of the time.

    To nourish adrenals you must provide them with:
    numerous micronutrients
    and
    proper light

    I you live
    above or below subtropics there is no sufficient light there (even if you are naked)
    If you wear clothes, glasses, sunscreen is even worst.

    I think you live in UK, say London, latitude 51.5072° N
    even on cloudless sunny day at noon, there is not enough light there
    subtropic ends at 38th parallel, it is around Gibraltar in your area.
    36.1430° N

    There are discussions on how to go about artificial lighting.
    Some here:
    https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.php?threads/low-cortisol-levels.14194/page-18

    Remember, lighting is about
    proper frequencies
    proper intensity
    proper timing

    all that lead to proper Circadian Rhythm

    -----------------------------------
    Lighting is just one item.
    The other are large variety of micronutrients.
    We are not what we eat, we are what we assimilate.
    So
    you want to check your micronutrients
    I do that using this test:

    It will also tell you what to do, (name and dose) to correct any deficiencies.
    Eventually you may want (or not) convert your deficiencies into food that you should emphasize.

    This test does not measure iodine.
    EVERYBODY is missing iodine.
    I supplement with 2% Lugol's , dropperfull/day =0.8cc/day

    =====================================================================

    I do not know how to get missing DHEAs naturally.
    For my self, I just measure in blood and supplement with pills.
    Regardless of age, desirable DHEAs level for men
    men (520-640)μg/dL

    There is a Quantlet
    that @Jack Kruse supports.
    I still can't wrap my head around it.
    I hope that there will come some explanation on how to use it by people who live in poor light conditions,
    (without lugging it around for 14hr/day on wrist).

    ....

    Thanks for the advice on relocating and artificial light - i have purchased two 160W reptile glo bulbs and use them whilst indoors. I want to make sure my problems stem from a lack of sunlight before I move to Africa though...
