Menopause

If you’re heading for Menopause, Read This Article Now!

  

Since the 1930s, American women have been led to believe that menopause is a disease condition requiring treatment. Synthetic estrogen (Hormone Replacement Therapy) has been proposed as the "treatment" for this "disease."

In 1938, diethylstilbestrol (DES), the first synthetic estrogen, was discovered by Charles Dobbs. It, and the others that followed, were soon proposed as a cure for menopause, with much funding from the drug industry.

But the study that was the basis for this belief was a small, flawed trial done in Puerto Rico in which 20 percent of the 132 women involved suffered serious side effects, and five died.

Nonetheless, FDA approval for synthetic estrogen was given based on this study. Later studies showed a risk of endometrial cancer five to 14 times the normal incidence among those who took synthetic estrogen. Synthetic progesterone was added to Hormone Replacement Therapy to reduce this problem. However, there was still a 40 percent to 70 percent higher risk of ovarian cancer.

The side effects of HRT can also include:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Blood clots
  • High blood pressure
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Rash, acne
  • Weight gain

However, an estimated $940 million per year is made from the sale of one HRT drug, Premarin, alone. The marketing campaign is likely to continue.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Unless you have had your head under a rock for the past few years you have been exposed to the new evidence that seriously questions the wisdom of using traditional postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

I recently came across the report linked above that does a wonderful job of summarizing the issues. It provides an excellent job of debunking the many harmful options conventional medicine falls back on when it comes to hormone therapy and how it harms women more than it helps, especially during menopause.

The report begins by detailing the sordid history behind the invention of the synthetic hormone market some 70 years ago. Diethylstilbestrol (DES) was the first drug invented that caused cancer in an infant when his or her mother took it.

The powers that be -- namely, the multi-national drug companies -- would rather prescribe a useless and potentially toxic drug for a "disease" like menopause than treat it like a natural condition that happens to most women. Unfortunately, doctors would have you take an HRT regimen that includes the completely unnatural progestin Synthetic progestins are responsible for many of the side effects of HRT.

If estrogen supplementation is absolutely necessary, many experts believe the optimal bioidentical hormone estradiol is all most women really need. There are many excellent books out now that review this topic and provide a good overview of the topic.

Pecans-

People always lament that the tasty things are the worst things for our health–case in point: French fries. But how about pecans? Yum! Pecans have shown to significantly lower LDL cholesterol and increase HDL. Frequent consumption of nuts is associated with a lowered risk of sudden cardiac death and other coronary heart disease, as well as a lower risk of Type II diabetes in women.

 
These kinda look like they are coated...we are talking fresh out of the shell! ;-)

Avenue of treatment


"I definitely recommend chiropractic care, and especially care with Dr. Kurth.  For the first time, I experienced a "no x-ray" exam, due to the state of the art diagnostic tools at his disposal.  I see Dr. Kurth quite often and the treatments I receive really help me a lot.  My headaches are fewer, my back spasms subside and my sleep patterns improve.  Plus, Kim adds to a friendly, non-threatening environment!  I can and do recommend this avenue of treatment to everyone."
