Here are a few stories on how Natpro has helped them:


May 22, 2014                                                                                                                                                                                     Antoinette Gmeiner .....

I am 52 years old.  Less that two years ago when I went to see my gynaecologist, she informed me that it was time for me to start taking HRT. Being with her for 20 years I really trusted her and eagerly started with HRT.  I was also told that I will have a 'normal' period for a time and then it will stop completely.


And so my nightmare began?  I started bleeding on a continuous basis for nearly a year and I felt AWFUL.  I went back to my gynaecologist who admitted me for an emergency operation there and then as I was bleeding so much.  Again she told me to continue with the HRT and that all bleeding would stop.  NEEDLESS to say it didn't, it continued at the same rate.


Then the universe blessed me and sent Joy on my path.  Joy advised to stop the HRT as all drug based HRT have a potential to cause harm, she asked me to trust her with this.  She advised not to go 'cold turkey' when coming off HRT as weaning off is kinder on the body.  However, I was SO tired of this nonsense that I, with IMMEDIATE EFFECT STOPPED ALL HRT and just started using Natpro and the Heavy Bleeding Protocol that Joy recommended.


Within two weeks I STOPPED bleeding and until today, nearly a year later I feel SO MUCH better and had NO adverse symptoms whatsoever!

My story began a few months ago ... I am 43 and started having terrible underarm sweats and night sweats and it was not even summer. I was always very aware of lifting my arms and going out in public as I never knew what state my armpits would be in. I also went for an eye test as my vision became blury, well, eye test was 100% NO GLASSES. 
In April I went on a holiday to visit Joy and she introduced me to Natpro, after millions of questions I placed my order and have not looked back. My sweats have stopped, my eyes are normal. My hips were very sore for the first two weeks of using this cream and I gained 1kg from water retention, the 1kg has gone and my hips are fine. The best thing is I have stopped smoking and have been using just a little more than the recommended dosage of Natpro and have managed with the cravings and feel on top of the world, I am still on my first tube of cream so am looking forward to the changes and improvements by the time I get to tube 3. Thanks JOY xxxx

Thanks Bron.

You know what Natpro has done for me you have heard me tell you so many times. I am so glad that you are happy with it and that you have experienced changes already. I was really amazed at how Natpro has helped with your cravings, just shows you. In most cases it takes 3 months for Natpro to kick in totally and as mentioned to you, it did not take that long for me.

We are all different so it affects us differently. Please keep me posted should you find it helping in other ways.
Take care. Joy

Hi Jo - thanks for your comment. Off hand I am not sure about rheumatism but I do know that it is good for aches and pains and inflammation. Let me check up for you and will revert with an answer. Take care.  Joy

Hi Jo

There are 13 different forms of 'rheumatic' disorders, 14 if you include fibromyalgia.
Which do you have? Progesterone can certainly help as it's an excellent anti-inflammatory
and is low in RA, lupus, Lyme disease, atherosclerosis, all of which are inflammatory
disorders. Please see:

This last shows the Th1 cytokine system is predominant in RA, but by switching to the Th2system damage is reduced. Progesterone activates the Th2 system, it also stimulates IL10 a natural anti-inflammatory the body produces.  The next paper shows MMP's are implicated in RA, these are enzymes designed to break down protein, too many and inflammation and destruction occurs. Estrogen stimulates MMP's, progesterone inhibits them.


A lack of vitamin D causes osteoarthritis, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, please consider having a blood test done. I know we're meant to get enough here living in the 'sun', but most of us spend our time indoors, please see:


Hope this helps Take care Wray

Hi Joy, just reading it is an eye opener how much does it cost and how do I get a hold of
it in Europe.

Here is something that I must share with you. Have you noticed brown marks on the side of your face and neck? I have had brown marks on my neck for years! I have tried everything to get rid of it including laser treatment. I was even told that I must not spray perfume on my neck because when you go into the sun it turns your skin brown!! After much research I discovered that the marks were in fact caused by a hormonal imbalance. I am happy to report that since using NATPRO those brown marks have all but disappeared. I am so happy and amazed by what this cream can do.
Take care. Joy

 This is an email received from a MALE who had a prostate problem - which proves that Natpro
is not only for females. He has asked to remain anonymous.

You asked me to report back to you once I had tried Natpro for a good length of time. I am one of your relatively rare male customers, aged 63, and was initially attracted to Natpro for two potential benefits: an improvement to my (benign) prostatitis, and an improvement to my libido. I am instinctively sceptical, and am not likely to be subject to the placebo effect - so I like to think!

Six months on I can report a definite and very welcome outcome in both respects.Whereas I used to have the usual difficulties associated with an enlarged prostate: poorflow and excessive frequency of urination, with consequently disturbed nights, I now routinely sleep soundly through six or seven hours, and the rate of flow, while not as vigorous as many years ago, is good and continuous. As for the libido .... let me simply say that I am delighted with the results in my sexuallife.

An entirely unexpected effect, and also welcome, was that very quickly (I mean within days of starting the applications) there was a marked effect on my sleep, which had been light and broken, but became heavier and more continuous and therefore more satisfactory, even though in those early days I was still having to get up once or twice to urinate.So, many thanks indeed.

You have an ongoing customer!

Does progesterone therapy get rid of Endometriosis?

So I started Natpro about 3 and half months ago. I am 31 and at 18 I was told by my gynae to have babies immediately (you can imagine how well my mom took that ha ha). Anyway, I had a lapscope at 18 which seemed to work.

I then started on homeopathic stuff for the endometriosis which worked wonders, but what a pain! take three tables 50 times day blah blah so needless to say, I stopped this route even though it helped.  At the ripe old age of 21 I went for another lapscope and lets just say that a 40 min op turned into 4 months of hospital.

The doc messed up and cut my urther (pipe from kidney to bladder with a laser) anyway, long story short - I only had my next lapscope at 28.  The (new) gynae said that although there was severed scarring the endometriosis looked under control. Although I still experienced all the symptoms.

So three and a half months ago I was introduced to Natpro and I havent looked back.I went to the gynae recently and he told me that my eggs are nice and happy, the tubes are clear, my lining is perfectly thick and everything looks hunky dory! No mention of endometriosis. My period this month was still helluva painful but only lasted two days! I also normally had a day in between when I wouldn’t bleed but then would come on again for a day or two (this has happened since I started my period) this month NOTHING! I started, two day, stopped


Also, I – like the genius I am – forgot to use the cream for a few days. I felt lethargicand depressed. When I remembered I dolloped my whole days dose in one go and within 20 mins felt FABULOUS!

Hi Joy

Just to let you know thatI'm amazed at what Natpro can do, I burnt myself two nights ago and only had Natpro in the house put it on and there was no blistering and there is no scar. I've been using the product for a couple of years and am still amazed at what it can do.

Thanks Yvonne.

Hi Yvonne.  Yes Natpro is excellent on burns as well as liver spots on the back of your hands.  I like to call Natpro a medicine chest all in one!!

Keep on using Natpro as it is good for so many other things.

Take care Joy


This testimonial was received from SEFFRINA via the website FORUM she would like to shares with us how NATPRO has helped her and her family!

 CONGRATS on the new forum! My kids have been using Natpro for 2 years.  I bought it through my poor doctor who had his license suspended remember I told u the story I think. He kept talking out against the drug companies and traditional medicine.  My son is 11 and it really helps keep him calm and I think he focuses a lot more since using it. My daughter is 18 and it has helped her big time with her pms symptoms and acne etc.. I'm a huge advocate for the miracle of Natural Progesterone for life!!!! Ive been using 10 mg 3 to 4 times a day and it has done wonders for me! Sometimes more like when the hubby stresses me out !! It's very sad how a vast majority of the human population don't know about or are afraid of coming into this wonderful world of natural progesterone!!I recently read an excerpt on Suzanne Somers book about finding the optimum level of estrogen and I really believe she is out of her mind!!!

In March 2009 Nicole Spruit contacted me requesting help with for Endometriosis, she was also unable to fall pregnant.  After using Natpro for a number of months and experiencing great pain …. Endometriosis is definitely not for the weak, Nicole eventually fell pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful little girl.  As I understand it, Nicole stopped using Natpro and then she decided it was time to have another baby.  Well nothing happened and then she remembered Natpro and started using it again.  It did not take long before Nicole was pregnant again and her second baby is due on the 22nd November, 2011.

Nicole’s sister Bronwyn is also using Natpro and this is a recent post from Bron:

“I have not stopped the NATPRO I get it from your JHB contact and I will NEVER stop NATPRO, would rather not eat than go without my NATPRO it has helped me with so many ups and downs and I have a beautiful niece and a nephew on the way because of it.  Baby is due on 22 November, she has to have a Caesar as he is huge, almost 4kg. We are very lucky girls in the family with our miracles as Nicole has two and I have one (Liam), before Liam I had 2 miscarriages and Liam was 6 weeks prem so God is surely looking out for us. Of course you can share the NATPRO miracle. Xxx”

Wishing Nicole and her husband all the very best with their new bundle of joy!!

It’s stories like this that make my job so worthwhile. Take care.
