Having seen what an attempt at HRT therapy did to my mother (basically wacked her out) and nearing an age and a medical problem that was about to have
me facing the same choices I did some thinking, along with a review of my hormone tests, and I immediately came to the conclusion that HRT is
It occurred to me after reveiw of my hormone tests that something was totally out of wack with the conventional 'wisdom" or what I find more
appropriately described as conventional "disdam". The key for me stumbling on this was basically at menopause your estrogen retreats to your
pre-adolescent levels and we don't run around through childhood with hotflashes and mood swings, so what is all this trauma about?
Further investigation showed that what happens at this stage in life is another hormone or two, in an attempt to stimulate estrogen production, go off
the charts. It seemed to me that even the natural atlernatives, along with HRT, target increasing Estrogen to back off this mad attempt by these other
hormones (specifically FSH & LH) to back off. Logically to me it seemed the focus should be targeting these two hormones to back off in some other way
than increasing estrogen, thereby getting all the hormones back to pre-adolescent levels and then there would be no problem. It's really a shame no
one has looked at it from this perspective, as too many women are suffering needlessly either from menopause, or from HRT, which from what I can see
is no picnic quick fix anyway, since there isn't one formula/dosage that works across the board. so you play guinea pig with yourself trying to get
Ultimately I found two natural substances (one very common and one virtually unknown but really cheap) that took away all the side affects of my
medically induced menopause (which is sudden and much more severe than natural menopause when surgically induced) in 3 days. Whether they actually
lower the FSH & LH, or just counter the affects I do not know, since no one is studying this but it worked.
My conclusion is I am on to something the medical community is totally missing. Stop trying to raise the estrogen (both with HRT and the conventional
nutritional substances), which is only needed during reproduction and should not be unnaturally elevated once the body is past the need for it. As far
as I'm concerned estrogen at that point is the enemy. Deal with why these other two hormones that are trying to raise it (unsuccessfully I might add)
which is the real cause of menopausal trauma, and seek to return the body to pre-adolescent levels of all hormones to achieve a drama free
It worked for me. Bottom line from my experience is the medical community is barking up the wrong tree, and I am sitting under a beautiful old oak
breezing through my menopause without a problem.
