Restless Leg Syndrome
Natural Progesterone Dose

What Topical Natural Progesterone Dose do I use?

by Peter Eckhart, MD

Restless Leg Syndrome requires 20-40 mg/day of Topical Natural Progesterone.

Rotate areas. One day the right arm. One day the left arm. One day the chest. One day the back. Do NOT do the same area again and again. The subcutaneous fat will saturate and then you cannot absorb any more.

For the first two to three months use 20-40 mg/day of natural progesterone. Depending on your weight, absorption, and excretion of Natural Progesterone every woman may need a different dose of Natural Progesterone. So you may play with the dose of Natural Progesterone to see what is the right dose for you.

If you do NOT want to conceive at this time, then you may take Natural Progesterone for Restless Leg Syndrome whenever you do NOT have a period.

Pharmaceutical natural Progesterone Dose does NOT have to be exact. Otherwise, you may take Natural Progesterone from days 14-26 where day 1 is the first day of your period.

This comes out to using 2-3 oz of progesterone cream/oil per month assuming each ounce contains 500 mg of Natural Progesterone per oz of cream/oil. After the breasts revert to normal and the breast cysts are gone, use one ounce a month. Women who have a great amount of body fat may have to maintain themselves on two ounces a month. If you have a progesterone cream that has 1000 mg of Natural Progesterone per oz use one half of the above volume, or 1-1 1/2 oz of progesterone cream/oil per month.

Pharmacy patient With any luck, if you avoid Xenoestrogens and Phytoestrogens, then you may not need any Natural Progesterone after 3-4 months to cure your Restless Leg Syndrome.

Some patients find it is impossible to avoid all xenoestrogens to cure Restless Leg Syndrome and like to maintain their on 20 mg/day of natural progesterone.

The ovary usually produces 20 mg/day of progesterone during the latter half of the menstrual cycle BEFORE the age of 35. During one day of third trimester pregnancy, the placenta at its peak produces 400 mg/day of natural progesterone. Thus, a very large therapeutic range is applicable for Natural Progesterone. Natural progesterone is quite safe to use in doses from 20 mg/day to 400 mg/day. Natural Progesterone is safer than Tylenol or Aspirin in this respect.

Dose does not have to be exact. Natural Progesterone is the same bioidentical molecule that your body produces. In contrast, many of the synthetic estrogens and progestins are chemically modified from the natural molecule and are dangerous to use. Any PDR (Physician Desk Reference) describes brand name prescription Progestins as causing cancer. Brand name prescription Progestins produce birth defects according to any PDR. In contrast, fertility Medical Doctors (test tube babies) routinely use Natural Progesterone to prevent first trimester miscarriage. See Progestins. Thus, Natural Progesterone is safe for you to use in a very large therapeutic window. Large or small amounts are relatively safe.

If the cream or oil contains 800 mg/oz , and his patients use one ounces of cream every month during the two weeks before menses, then this comes out to about one (1/2) teaspoon per day. The cream can be applied to any part of the skin with good circulation. The area may be on the neck, chest, legs, arms, thighs, palms, or soles of the feet. The cream is applied once in the morning and once before bedtime. Some patients experience mild drowsiness after application of the cream. If so, one application before bedtime is fine. It is important to rotate application areas. If you continuously apply to only one area say the right arm, then the subcutaneous fat saturates and you canNOT absorb any more natural progesterone. So rotate application areas.

After the Restless Leg Syndrome has reverted to normal Dr. Lee finds that the patients can usually maintain Restless Leg Syndrome Free on one half ounce of progesterone cream per month of the initial dose.

Some patients that diligently avoid xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens will NOT even need Natural Progesterone after several months to maintain their cure for Restless Leg Syndrome.

The Bottom Line

Summary - Progesterone Dose for Restless Leg Syndrome

  • Use a progesterone cream that gives you 40 mg/day of natural progesterone per day for the first 2-3 months
  • If the progesterone cream/oil contains 800 mg/ounce, for the first 2-3 months use two ounces of cream per month; this is about one (1/2) teaspoon per day.
  • If the progesterone cream/oil contains 800 mg/day, after the Restless Leg Syndrome reverts to normal after 2-3 months, use one half ounce of cream/oil per month to maintain healthy legs
  • Apply the cream during the two weeks before menses for 14 days if premenopausal (before menopause)
  • Apply the cream/oil for three weeks on and one week off if postmenopausal (after menopause)

PMS Improving

I have to go to work but wanted to send a quick email to tell you what a difference this has made in my life.

The first month I had to stop taking and eliminate some more products from my life. The second month though has been going great! I only drink water and some juices now and have purchased both olive oil soap from Elysian Dream and the laundry detergent from Nature it! I am having somewhat tender breasts now (this week) and think that it may be due to the oncoming menstrual cycle. Anyway....the other differences I have experienced are incredible. My mood is so much, even keel and feeling great! Also I have lost 15 pounds in two (2) months without even really trying (this was not something intentional). I still eat the same amount...only now I eat better. The extra fat around my waste line is leaving and almost gone. I am 39 years old and have struggled with monthly issues and breast pain for quite some time. This year the breast pain was becoming extremely severe and my doctor didn't really have any answers. Also a couple lumps were found on my mammogram (diagnosed as cysts). I will write more later to you about this but must leave for work now. Oh, my weight, two months ago was 145 pounds and now I am 130 pounds (had to purchase new clothes). I am getting my body back and my skin has cleared up and my hair feels great (It seemed as though my hair kept thinning and now it has stopped in that I don't seem to have as much falling out when I run my fingers through it). Why don't more people know about this! I have begun telling everyone I know, that will listen.......

Thank you for having your website and sharing this news,

Lost Weight
Just a short note to let you know that I am so great. I have removed as many xenoestrogens as possible from my environment, skin and diet, as you advised, for nearly a month now and the improvement has been amazing. I am using the Nature Clean powder detergent, no dryer sheets, Elysian Dream products for hair and skin (fragrance free and those without rosemary and lavendar oils, only ones with olive oil, and the organic, fragrance-free shea butter), and the crystal deodorant vs. regular deodorant (AMAZINGLY better), and we changed all of our household products to the Nature Clean line and no longer use any antibacterial foaming soaps or anything. Just Grandpa's baking soda soap for regular hand washing.

I have lost seven pounds this month, my last period cycle was 28 days (who knew!) and my hair has started to grow back (after four years of thinning!!). The biggest thing is that my body is, quiet, for lack of a better way to describe it! No stomach aches, bloating or headaches, no breast pain and my moods are more consistent day to day. My energy is coming back, skin is great -- I can't believe it.

I think I have finally tapped into what has been ailing me for the past six years and I couldn't be more pleased! I plan to use these products regardless... the "clean" feeling from them is just so great. My husband has been using them too, and we are thrilled!!

Thank you so much!
