Willard Allen together with his professor, George Corner, discovered and isolated Progesterone in 1933. They decided to call it Progesterone because of its progestational activity in pregnant females. At this stage, medical practitioners were unaware of the many roles that progesterone can play in the lives of both males and females and even children.
Initially Progesterone was used very successfully to treat women who experienced miscarriages but it was extremely expensive.
In 1944, chemist Russell E Marker was able to dramatically reduce the cost of Progesterone when he discovered that he could extract, then synthesize bio-identical progesterone and other steroid hormones from the Mexican Wild Yam.
In the late 70s a Dr John Lee began experimenting with natural progesterone cream in his medical practice and eventually his work turned into a medical revolution and progesterone cream became one of the most sought after products in the health industry. Dr Lee was the first to coin the phase “Estrogen Dominance.” More recently Dr. Michael Platt and others have used higher dosages of progesterone to resolve a much wider range of health problems.
Dr Lee wrote several books including “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause” and What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer. Other researchers discovered additional important uses for progesterone in men, women and children. “The Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones” by Dr Michael E. Platt MD is a book that is available in both English and Spanish.
