HRT

  1. The right way to get your female hormones

    Don't fear the estrogen

    Ladies, you've heard enough bad news about hormone replacement therapy to scare you away from it for good. But don't throw the baby out with the bathwater, because there's a huge difference between Big Pharma's dangerous and synthetic HRT drugs and natural bioidentical estrogen.

    The first one can kill you.

    The second one, however, could save your life -- especially after a hysterectomy, and new research shows that up to 91,000 women have died needlessly over the past decade because they weren't given estrogen after the operation.

    It's basic biology: Once the uterus is removed, estrogen levels plunge. You go through what feels a lot like menopause, only worse.

    Estrogen of course can ease those symptoms -- but women often refuse it (and some docs advise against it). They've heard those HRT horror stories, and how it can increase the risk of cancer, dementia, heart disease and more.

    Of course it does.

    The Big Pharma stuff is made from HORSE PEE, for crying out loud.

    But natural bioidentical hormones replace what your body has lost safely -- and if you don't get it after a hysterectomy, you could face a whole lot more than just some hot flashes.

    You could face a heart attack and cancer, not to mention death from both of them, according to the study in the American Journal of Public Health.

    So don't be afraid of estrogen. If you need it, get it -- just make sure you say no to the synthetic stuff and stick to natural bioidentical estrogen custom-made to match the needs of your body.

    That's true whether you're fighting back after a hysterectomy or just trying to fight the effects of Father Time. But don't stop with estrogen -- because there's another hormone you need.

    Testosterone!

    No, I'm not confused. The "manly" hormone is also essential to women, especially to the heart. You need much less than men, but you absolutely do need it.

    An experienced doc can check all your hormone levels, top you off naturally and monitor your progress to make sure you get what you need (and no more). I recommend a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine.

  2. The natural cure for 'muffin top'

    Fight the flab with estrogen

    Ladies, you know the deal. The worst part about aging isn't going gray, it's not joint pain, and it's not even all that hair growing out of your husband's ears.

    It's the flab... the blubber that gathers around your middle, jiggles when you walk, and spills out over your clothes.

    Yes, it's the dreaded "muffin top."

    Seems like no matter what you do, it won't go away -- but that's not true. There IS something you can do right now to chase it away for good, and the answer comes from a new study on mice that shows how muffin top is created in the first place.

    This ugly form of flab is actually controlled by a specific enzyme -- one that itself is kept in check by estrogen. So when you're young and rich in hormones, the enzyme lays low and muffin top is something you snicker at when you see it on other women.

    Then, one day, menopause hits. Estrogen falls, the enzyme goes to work, and suddenly YOU'RE the one other women are snickering at.

    But it doesn't have to be that way.

    The researchers behind the new study say they hope to work on a new therapy that targets the enzyme, but that's a waste of everyone's time.

    What you really need is to replace your lost estrogen.

    There's been a lot of fear-mongering over estrogen therapy in recent years and most of it's bunk. Done responsibly, estrogen treatments are safe, effective, and in some cases critical to your overall health -- especially when it comes to muffin top.

    This fat isn't just unsightly. It's dangerous -- because muffin top is made of the visceral fat that builds up around the organs, increasing your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and an early death.

    The best way to get your estrogen back is by working with an experienced naturopathic physician. I recommend a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM).

    Just one note on this: If your muffin top is made of actual muffins, no amount of estrogen will make it go away -- so be sure to eat right, too.

    I'm not done with hormones yet. Men, you're up next. Keep reading!
