Introduction to Sexy Hormones
AN ANCIENT ADAGE from Chinese medicine states, "A doctor would rather treat 10 men than one woman." In a way, this validates what women have always known-that we are indeed intricate creatures. At the heart of a woman's complexity are her hormones, their ebb and flow influencing all aspects of physical, emotional and mental wellness. Sexy hormones are sex hormones including, but not limited too, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA and progesterone. When a woman's hormones are in balance, she feels fabulous, has energy and is vital. She is also far less likely to experience symptoms through her fertile years and during the transition through menopause. Unfortunately, all it takes is one alteration to this perfectly orchestrated process for hormone havoc to ensue.
In the last five years women have finally been told that commonly prescribed synthetic hormones may come with enormous health implications. In 2002 the Women's Health Initiative Estrogen and Progestin Study (WHI) was halted due to serious safety concerns. For over five decades women used estrogen and progestin to treat menopause symptoms and to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer's, bone loss and more. The WHI study found that women taking a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestin had a 26 percent increase in invasive breast cancer, a 29 percent increase in heart attacks, double the risk of dementia, double the risk of blood clots and a 41 percent increase in stroke. It also found that breasts became so dense breast cancer could not be read on a mammogram, and asthma and hearing loss were also increased. An extension of this study using estrogen only was halted less than a year later because of an increased risk of stroke and dementia. Millions of women threw their hormones in the garbage and many doctors stopped prescribing them altogether. The results left many women suffering severe menopause symptoms and fearing that maybe all those years of taking hormones potentially increased the risk of those conditions they were trying to prevent.
Physicians and women alike are learning that the love affair with estrogen, in particular, can be a very dangerous liaison. We are being bombarded by estrogens and other hormones on a daily basis. Synthetic estrogens found in birth control pills, fertility drugs, and other hormone therapies are major sources of estrogen that contribute to estrogen overload. Women are fooled into believing the birth control pill is safe because it is "low dose." Low dose means lower than previous years but the pill contains many times a woman's natural level of estrogen. The birth control pill launched in the 1960s to provide women with sexual freedom and liberation from unwanted pregnancies is known to increase the risk of breast cancer, promote endometrial and fibroid tissue growth and halt testosterone's libido enhancing effects. New research found in the pages of Sexy Hormones shows that women may have traded the freedom to have sex without worry of pregnancy for a reduction or elimination of sex drive. What's worse the pill is being prescribed for acne, endometriosis, heavy periods and uterine fibroids-yet no research has been done on the pill for these conditions. Future research on the pill's safety will confirm what we have learned about estrogen and progestin used for menopausal concerns-that the pill is contributing to hormone diseases in women.
Food is also a contributor to hormone havoc. The Toronto-based Environmental Defence, states a large percentage of our exposure to dangerous hormone-mimickers comes from our diet, especially fish, meats, chicken, dairy products and pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables. The Sexy Hormone diet teaches you which foods balance or disrupt hormones and which foods rev up sex drive.
Hormone-mimicking foods have added to the obesity epidemic. Too much fat on the body adds to hormone hell because fat cells, through an enzyme, convert testosterone into estrogens. The more fat cells you have the higher your total estrogen. Excess insulin or insulin resistance, common in the overweight, also causes estrogen dominance. As insulin levels spike, estrogen is secreted in higher amounts. And cortisol, our stress hormone, promotes estrogen dominance and more weight gain creating a viscous cycle of more fat cells that become even fatter and produce even more estrogen.
Sexy Hormones delves deep into these issues weeding out the hype from the research. And there is a lot of hype. You will learn that hormones are powerful messengers that direct and control every function in the body from heart rate to orgasms. Sexy Hormones is a must read because all sex hormones contribute to the vibrancy of your health, stamina and vitality. This book clears up the confusion on how to use hormones safely to treat female conditions. In this book bioidentical hormone therapies are discussed in detail. But more importantly this book advises when to have hormone testing, what type of testing to have performed, and whether you are a candidate for bioidentical hormones and what all the information means to your optimal health. Sexy Hormones even includes prescriptions for bioidentical hormones in case your physician is not versed on the subject of natural hormone treatment. The goal throughout Sexy Hormones is providing safe, effective treatments that get you feeling fabulous. Sexual desire and satisfaction are affected by hormone havoc.
Our feelings of being "sexy" are hormone driven. Sexy Hormones solves the mysteries of female sexual health. Sex is a central part of who we are. It is the basis for our relationships. Men are being prescribed the "little blue pill" in record numbers and you can't turn on your computer without being bombarded by spam to make "it" bigger, longer and stronger. Yet 43 percent of women have NO sex drive, many women are suffering with pain during intercourse and not much is being done in the research community to help these women. We have provided very frank information about female sexuality-everything from the anatomy of a woman's genitals to how to have an orgasm. We even include information on aphrodisiacs, tips and toys. Every woman should read this book and moms and grandmothers should pass this book on to their daughters. In essence Sexy Hormones provides a complete guide to understanding your sexy hormones—enjoy!
Low Thyroid Infertility Epidemic
Back in 1995 the National Survey for Family Growth in Canada found that 10.2% of couples were infertile. Today that rate has skyrocketed and most of us know a couple that is having trouble conceiving.
Infertility can be caused by several reasons including ovulation disorders, PIDs (Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases), hormone imbalance, endometriosis, age, being over- or under-weight, toxic chemical exposure and low thyroid. Low thyroid is a common problem in this country. The thyroid gland is a super regulator of many systems in the body especially fertility. When a woman has low thyroid the body protects the health of the potential fetus by not allowing the women to become pregnant. It is well-known that women with low thyroid have a difficult time getting pregnant and if low thyroid is not corrected the baby has a 150-fold increase in cerebral palsy expectancy and severe neuro-psychomotor defects. Research has also linked ADHD in children to their mother's thyroid deficiency while pregnant. And ADHD is not the only concern IQ can be affected. One study found that offspring of mom's with low thyroid had children who scored 11 IQ points lower than children born to mom's who did not. With 25% of Canadians currently on thyroid medication and another 30% with subclinical low thyroid-and many not being treated adequately-our children may be affected too. So important is this information that every potential mother should be tested and monitored during pregnancy for optimal thyroid function. And new research has shown that a Thyroid Stimulating Test (TSH) over 2.0 can impede a woman's chances of becoming pregnant - and that you do not have to have severe low thyroid for infertility to be a problem. If you are a women trying to conceive or you know someone attempting to become pregnant tell them this very important piece of information. In Canada a TSH lab test range of normal is approximately 0.5 to 5.5 and most physicians would not classify you as having low thyroid until your thyroid is above 5.5. Knowing that updated research shows a TSH above 2.0 can affect your fertility and the mental abilities of your baby it is important to know your TSH number. Better yet start taking care of your thyroid today. THYROSMART is a combination of safe nutrients designed to support the optimal function of your thyroid gland. It is so safe it can be taken along with thyroid medication too. For women who have a TSH over 2.0 that can not get their doctor to prescribe thyroid medication THYROSMART is the missing key. Take 2 THYROSMART with breakfast daily - and remember always ask for your TSH number when visiting the doctor—don't just accept an answer that your thyroid is fine.
Breast Cancer Rates Decline Since HRT Study Halted
Since the WHI study was abruptly halted in 2002 there has been a remarkable decline in breast cancer rates. Fewer women are taking a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestins (HRT) to alleviate the symptoms of menopause. According to the Canadian Medical Association Journal the number of women between the ages of 50 and 69 years diagnosed with estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer declined 12% between 2002 and 2003. Thousands of women have switched to safer natural remedies to treat their menopause symptoms. MENOSMART treats hot flashes and night sweats safely and effectively. Take 2 MENOSMART at breakfast and 2 at bedtime for 24 hour a day reduction of hot flashes and night sweats.
Coffee Elevates Estrogen:
A great reason to drink tea
The International Journal of Cancer reported a correlation between ovarian cancer and daily caffeine intake. Researchers found that coffee and caffeine in general was linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer in pre-menopausal women. This is not the first study to show the connection between regular coffee consumption and reproductive cancers. Coffee increases estradiol levels and estrogen makes cells grow. Coffee contributes to estrogen dominant conditions too like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, lumpy breasts, heavy periods, and more. Herbal tea is an excellent alternative. Pour yourself a cup of tea!
Melatonin for more than Sleep
Melatonin supports a lot more than deep, restful sleep, and the ability to function and think clearly. Scientists have discovered that it's a powerful antioxidant that helps protect us from infection, inflammation, and autoimmunity. Additionally, many believe that suppression of melatonin by light at night (experienced by night-shift workers) is a possible risk factor for developing a serious illness like cancer.
In fact, over-exposure to light at night-because of both night work and as a personal choice and life style-has been associated with increased breast and colon cancer risk in shift workers.
- As we age our melatonin levels decrease-which is one of the contributing factors to age-related disease and poor sleeping patterns.
- Depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) are associated with diminished night time release of melatonin. This has led researchers to use melatonin as an experimental treatment for depression, with good results.
- Studies have also shown abnormalities in melatonin secretion in patients who experience migraines and that they show an improvement after taking melatonin.
- Alzheimer's disease, especially for sleep disorders and during the period called "sun downing," when patients become agitated during late afternoon and early evening.
- Gastric ulcers
- Hot flashes in menopausal women because melatonin suppresses luteinizing hormone (LH) in postmenopausal women.
- Cardiovascular disease, since melatonin helps regulate nitric oxide production, which plays a vital role in ensuring proper cardiovascular function.
End Endometriosis and Fibroids Forever
Heavy menstrual bleeding and spotting leading to anemia, caused by uterine fibroids, is the number one reason for hysterectomy in North America today. The U.S. and Canada have the highest rates of hysterectomy in the world. This statistic upsets me terribly. Even a partial hysterectomy done through a small incision can induce infection and requires a long recovery. When a classical hysterectomy is performed some women take months to recover full vitality. If both the uterus and ovaries are removed women are thrown into early instant menopause with often debilitating symptoms of severe hot flashes and night sweats. Hormonal imbalance, particularly estrogen dominance is the cause of endometriosis and uterine fibroids. ESTROSMART, a combination of plant extracts, quickly normalizes hormones and stops abnormal cell growth. Within two to three menstrual cycles women notice their periods normalize with the flow being reduced. ESTROSMART 2 capsules at breakfast and 2 capsules with dinner balances the estrogen to progesterone naturally using safe, effective nutrients including I3C, DIM, D-glucarate, sulforaphane, curcumin, rosemary and green tea extract. Periods become effortless and PMS a problem of the past, so effective is ESTROSMART that I am on a mission to have every women from the time she is twelve take ESTROSMART. Women should not have to suffer with the "curse" and women should not be having hysterectomy for heavy periods. Make sure if you are anemic that your also supplement with Floradix iron too as low iron causes heavier periods.
