http://www.DocBlock.com, Dr. Jerome Block, MD has an Integrative and Internal Medicine practice in Tulsa, OK that caters to patients who have seen many doctors in the past, but who have not seen any results or improvement in their health! Dr. Jerome Block, MD is the real ife “House”. He achieves results when others have failed. Here are some passages from his website in regards to women’s hormonal health:
“The advantages of taking female hormones are great. Gynecological problems such as vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, decreased libido, vaginal infections, leakage of urine, and recurrent bladder infections are markedly improved. Uncomfortable symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood and sleep disturbances improve within forty-eight hours of taking female hormones. As noted above, cardiovascular disease, in particular, heart attack and stroke, is markedly reduced by hormone replacement. Osteopenia and osteoporosis can cause pain if mild, and fractures in severe cases in women not taking female hormones. Moreover, hormone replacement improves memory and artery health, decreases brain cell loss, and can lessen Alzheimer’s disease. Cancer of the colon, dental cavities, decreased vision due to cataracts, dry eyes, and macular degeneration occur more often in women who do not take hormones. Although not nearly as important to physicians, but very important to the individual, premature aging occurs more in women who choose not to take female hormones. Wrinkling of the skin, decreased vibrancy of the hair, and slow growth and cracking of the nails are common signs of estrogen deficiency.
Bioidentical or natural hormones are safer than the synthetics, as noted above. Most doctors who prescribe hormones use a combination of what the ovaries used to make in the form of Estriol (E3) and Estradiol (E2)—Biest. Others use the three natural estrogens: E2, E3, and E0 (Estrone)—Triest. I do not recommend Estrone (E0), as it has been implicated in breast cancer. Additionally, the ovaries did make progesterone and a small amount of androgen. The androgen, or testosterone, is made mostly in the adrenals. It has been the neglected hormone in females. Testosterone should be included as part of a women’s natural hormone formula. This is essential to normal sexual desire. It helps promote weight loss and improves the integrity of muscle and bone and exercise tolerance. Recently I have been prescribing Estriol as the only estrogen. It not only tends to prevent cancer, but also is anti-inflammatory. Soon E3 will be a patented drug used to treat multiple sclerosis, certain arthritic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, and in the future, allergies and atherosclerosis. Since it is available now for a fraction of its Big Pharma price, I use it almost exclusively when I prescribe estrogen. ”
