Gardening is therapeutic......Studying what HORMONES TO TAKE is therapeutic!

Here is Part 2 of my GREAT HEALTH PROGRAM. I have NO PAIN and I am fully active through Bio-Identical Hormones,Exercise, THE ALMIGHTY,and Diet.

         A bio-identical HORMONE is one which is identical to the ones produced by the human body.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
They are:
~estradiol
~estriol
~estrone
~DHEA-Dehydroepiandrosterone
~progesterone
~pregnenolone
~testosterone
 
These are produced throughout our lives in different quantities.  The aging process decreases  their production.  What I have done through research and personal trial, is restore these hormones so that I will be protected against osteoporosis, cardiovascular problems and other health issues associated with growing older. 
 
~Testosterone

ORAL TABLETS
Natural hormones tend to be broken down by the stomach acid and are poorly absorbed from the gut, because of this problem methyltestosterone (a testosterone conjugate) was developed. This form of testosterone has a better absorption profile but must go through the liver for activation. This activation step is thought to increase the risk of side effects.
My pharmacy uses natural micronized testosterone that they complex in a unique lipid matrix tablet which helps protect the testosterone from degradation in the stomach and produces reproducible blood levels. They have compounded testosterone tablets in various strengths to meet the needs of the individual patient.

 
             Your team players are help from the ALMIGHTY, a Quality Pharmacist and a Compassionate Physician.
 
            Soybeans  (GMO free) and yams, used as bio-identical hormones are comparable to human hormones.  They contain large quantities of stigmasterol, a cholesterol-like molecule which can easily be chemically altered into bio-identical hormones for men and women.
             
              GMO stands for genetically modified organism. At present, to create a greater protein in the soybeans, it can be infused with pigs genes, etc! I will not do GMO products!  When a pharmacy compounds your hormones you want to find out where they get their products from. I KNOW...... that my hormones are GMO free!   
 
             Hormones do alot for us!  They regulate our bodies to control almost all of our cell's activities.   You have different organs that specialize in the production of these amazing substances.  Hormones are like keys; very complicated, and need to perfectly match to the locks, or receptors found on and in the cells of various tissues in our awesome bodies.
 
              Prempro is a synthetic hormone, so is Premarin!  Although they have some of the effects of bio-identical hormones, they are actually foreign to the body.
 
            Bio-identical hormones cannot be patented and there is less ECONOMIC INCENTIVE to study the benefits of these substances.  When I first started Peri-menopause the doctor I was seeing wanted to put me on Prempro and Xanex.  I dropped him as a Doctor!  You want to work with your body, not against it biochemically. 
 
               All doctors are not educated in the use of hormones.  Some will learn; others get money from the big pharmaceutical companies to push their synthetic hormones because they are patented! 
 
              Women and men today, are afraid of hormones!  Educate yourself.....there is nothing to be afraid of with team work.
 
             When we were in our prime, late twenties, we should have had a complete battery of hormone tests to see what our optimum levels were for progesterone,etc.  Then when we reached Peri-menopause or Andropause, being retested, we would have know what each level of hormone would be.
 
             

THIS INFORMATION SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED MEDICAL ADVICE. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR DIET OR MEDICATION IF YOU ARE ILL, OR WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF YOUR PHYSICIAN.

Remember, reseach out GMO free, bio-identical hormones and you will have less side effects. When you are trying to reach the right dosage, it might take several months. I was on two particular hormones for eight months before I changed their quantity.
