One of the tragedies associated with our healthcare system is that there is no preventive medicine.  Many people, doctors included, feel that giving flu shots and providing mammograms is preventive medicine.  Well, flu shots do not prevent the flu and mammograms certainly do not prevent breast cancer. I have been involved with hormones since my mother died of breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 61.  It concerns me that the horrific medical care that she was subjected to 35 years ago is still considered the standard of care by many of today’s doctors. Up until this point, [...]

REGARDING THE DR. OZ SHOW ON BIRTH CONTROL PILLS On Friday, March 9, 2012, the Dr. Oz show talked about how birth control pills provide a 50% reduction in ovarian and colorectal cancer if used for more than 5 years.

Part of the explanation lies in the fact that doctors are given relatively little knowledge about hormones during their training. Much of what they do learn is based on studies done by drug companies. As a result, if a person has a problem at any age, most likely they will wind up on a synthetic medication rather than treating the underlying cause [...]

Every system in the body, at any age, is controlled by hormones. Accordingly, at any age, hormones can be out of balance and this factor can give rise to certain symptoms, or,moreseriously, certain conditions. In spite of their importance to our health, doctors receive relatively little information about hormones during their training. Instead, emphasis is placed on using prescription drugs to treat the symptoms of disease rather than getting hormones into balance to eliminate the problem. To demonstrate how pervasive hormonal imbalance is, two columns will be presented. One will represent the symptoms that can occur, and the next [...]
