Doctors Continue to Kill and Injure with Horse Urine Estrogen

The medical profession continues to kill and injure women with horse urine estrogen replacement therapy (ERT).  Advice to use lower-dose estrogen or even bio-identical estrogen is generally ignored and the prescription of choice remains the cancer and heart disease causing horse urine estrogen.  It is unlikely that health care costs in this country will ever get under control until doctors are actually held accountable when they kill and injure people with drugs – especially when they continue to prescribe a deadly drug knowing that it causes harm.

Hormones and the heart

In the eyes of holistic physicians, hormones are the “fountain of youth” in the human body. Their job is to regulate the functions of different tissues and organs as well as blood pressure control, reproductive function, body mass, immune function, cognitive performance, how we deal with stress and so much more. Hormones are chemical messengers that are released from one area of the body to communicate a signal in another area.

The hormonal “orchestra” must stay in balance in order for the tissues that they regulate to function optimally and stay in harmony. When hormones become depleted or imbalanced (from aging, stress, pollutants, lifestyle) we begin to experience serious health issues.

While the majority of information about hormonal health tends to focus on reproductive function and conditions associated with PMS, menopause and andropause, other areas of the body are just as greatly affected.

The heart is one organ that hormone balance has a direct effect upon. Newer research is exploring how inadequate hormone levels negatively affect heart health, and how achieving hormone balance can offset this. (more…)

Soy, healthful or harmful?

There is an epic battle being waged over a common food that you and your children likely are exposed to every single day.

In one corner are those who proudly profess the almost miracle-like qualities of this food, with boastful claims about how it can do everything from curing cancer to preventing heart disease and even menopause.

In the other corner there is a persnickety bunch who retorts that this food is anything but a “miracle.” They claim it can lead to thyroid disease, actually CAUSE cancer, hamper your immune system, destroy your brain, make you infertile, and even turn males into females! (more…)

Herbal Supplement May Reduce Risk of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. Risk factors for breast cancer include gender, age, family history, defective genes, early onset of menstruation, late menopause and late childbearing. Breast cancer is about ninety percent due to genetic abnormalities that happen as a result of the aging process and the “wear and tear” of life in general.

A study published in the journal Breast Cancer investigated the effects of an herbal formula on breast health in women not taking hormonal contraceptives or supplements.  (more…)
