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.
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.
