Mainstream Western medicine and the pharmaceutical companies get away with murder…literally! A prime example of this is the Women’s Health Initiative Study whose objective was “to assess the major health benefits and risks of the most commonly used combined hormone preparations in the United States”, conjugated equine estrogens and medroxyprogesterone acetate in 1 tablet.
The planned duration of the trial was to be 8.5 years, but after women were dropping like flies, and the risks were exceeding the benefits, the study was dropped after 5.2 years. Innocent women were dying as a result of the 2 main side effects:
- Coronary Heart Disease (fatal and non-fatal from strokes)
- Invasive Breast Cancer
What is even more shocking is that Western medicine continues to dispense these toxic artificial hormones without batting an eye. Without taking the time to look at the evidence, they minimize and ridicule the effect of safe Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, commonly known as BHT.
I constantly receive emails and questions from women about the safety of BHT because they have been fed misinformation for years. I understand the fears and the questions because women that are being proactive with their health want to know the facts. Hopefully this blog will rest your fears aside and help you appreciate the marvels of BHT.
Your Hormones Do Not Cause Cancer
If your hormones caused cancer, then why aren’t 20 year olds ravaged with cancer?? Every cell in your body has estrogen and progesterone receptors. What does increase your risk of Breast Cancer are the Xeno-estrogens or chemical estrogens that are abundant in the environment as well as the ingredients in many of the skin care products. These Endocrine Disrupting Compounds such as dioxins, DDT, BPA and Phthalates increase the production of estradiol, the more aggressive estrogen. These man-made chemicals can bind to hormone receptors and change the delicate hormones balance in the body.
Make a concerted effort to minimize your exposure to these chemicals in order to reduce the effect of the false estrogens. If you are supplementing with natural estrogen BHT, you can improve the way your body metabolizes estrogens by making sure that your diet is high in cruciferous vegetables and that you supplement with DIM and I3C, green tea and melatonin.
The Fournier Study, a 12 year study involving over 80,000 women, found no evidence of an increased risk of Breast Cancer with the use of estrogen (oral, transdermal, percutaneous) as long as natural progesterone was used.
BHT is Safe and Does NOT Increase your Breast Cancer Risk
If you would like to set your mind art ease, take a moment to look at these studies and links that I have provided.
- Low estrogen levels are associated with age-related diseases.
- Low estrogen affects your bladder, brain, cardio-vascular system, skin and bones. Natural estrogen may reduce accelerated aging.
- Natural estrogen and progesterone do NOT induce estrogen-stimulated Breast Cancers
- Natural progesterone alone decreased breast cell proliferation by 76% compared to a placebo group.
- Natural progesterone may have an anti-proliferative effect on Breast Cancer cells.
- A recent study suggests that the addition of natural progesterone in cyclic regimens does NOT affect Breast Cancer risk
- A study that analyzed published data form PubMed/Medline, Google Scholar and Cochrane databases about synthetic versus natural hormones concluded that the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy is BHT.
- A study involving 80,000 post-menopausal women, natural progesterone use eliminated the Breast Cancer risk when used with synthetic estrogens.
- Over 5,900 pre-menopausal women who had higher levels of progesterone had an 88% decreased Breast Cancer risk (Life Extension, November 2103 Issue)
Since aging and diseases are accelerated when there is hormone deficiencies, it is extremely important to get accurate readings about your hormones through Saliva Hormone Testing; be sure to connect with your holistic health professional to find out more.
You can enjoy the benefits of youth-restoring BHT when when it is applied in the right doses. Don’t guess when it comes to your health. The evidence speaks for itself….Bio-Identical Hormones are safe and very beneficial.
