Alternative Medicine, Holistic Medicine, Bio-Identical Hormones - Dr. Jerome Block MD
http://www.docblock.com, There is little question that hormonal replacement benefits definitely outweigh the risks of other diseases, particularly when bio-identical hormones are used. These are exactly like the hormones made in the ovaries. The human body knows no difference from these and what is produced genetically. The bio-identicals are derived initially from plant sources and crafted to be the same composition that is naturally produced by your body. Thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones are available also bio-identically. Unfortunately, too many women in our country are not taking hormones because of the false concern that they may cause cancer. Medical doctors were hoodwinked by the media in 2006 to believe that taking hormones is risky. Three reports that show a minimal increase of breast and uterine cancer contradict the previous forty years of benignity in over 1,000 studies. Today, a woman who is age fifty and in good health could very well spend half her lifetime in a postmenopausal hormone imbalance and hence, the subject to increase of morbid problems. Female hormones are the only hormone abnormality in all of medicine that are not routinely replaced. If the patient has a low thyroid level, doctors prescribe thyroid. If she has low parathyroid output, doctors give her parathormone (Forteo). No physician would dare withhold insulin from a diabetic, but most physicians are not giving female hormones to those who need it most. Recent statistics show that less than 20 percent of postmenopausal women receive hormonal replacement and that most of them begged their physicians to prescribe them.
