As you read this, millions of women are still getting estrogen drugs. If you’ve gone to your doctor for menopause symptoms, you know what I’m talking about. I use the word drugs because they are not real hormones.
Hormones synthetically created are nothing like the hormones your own body makes.
These prescriptions are referred to as Hormone Replacement Therapy but it isn’t truly therapy. What’s being prescribed isn’t a real hormone, and it does nothing to help with the real problems of menopause. Further more, it could be doing more harm than good.
For most women, too much estrogen is the problem. Not too little. A too much estrogen in the body can lead to cancer.
Women are bombarded with extra estrogen from the food supply, body care products, and the environment. When doctors only address estrogen, it’s only part of the picture.
When menopause starts, progesterone starts to plummet and symptoms that arise are mental fogginess, fatigue, and anxiety. Progesterone plays a roll in how you look and feel. It can:
- Elevate mood
- Use fat better (and not hold on to it)
- Boost libido
- Support bones
Testosterone is another hormone that can contribute to menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and depression. Testosterone also plays a roll in how you look and feel. It can:
- Maintain muscle mass
- Motivate and drive
- Keep blood sugar normal
- Keep the mind sharp
I offer a simple and accurate saliva test that shows exactly what is going on with your hormones. I highly recommend to test, don’t guess.
