Menopausal: Peri-Menopausal? Are You Taking Charge of Your Hormones?
A new study reveals we are a generation of 'hormonally challenged' women, unaware of what hormones can do for the body. I was shocked at the numbers revealed in this study.
The study reveals that we are a generation of HORMONALLY UNBALANCED women. Why? The culprits are the use of birth control pills & toxins in the environment, including environmental estrogen.
Most women do not know how hormones work to affect their health and significant well being. In the study:
More than 1/2 (53%) were unaware that hormones are responsible for the aging process
4 out of 5 did not know that low hormones are responsible for the aging process
4 out of 5 did not know that hormones can be the cause of loss of energy and tiredness
75% did not know that hormones can trigger weight gain
40% were oblivious to the detrimental impact low hormones can have on the skin and hair loss. Hair loss is usually hormonal in women, not genetic.
About 33% of women did not know that hormone imbalance can cause:
Anxiety and depression
Loss of libido
Negative reaction to stress
Wow! That’s a lot of symptoms! Most women did think hormone imbalance could cause hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness…the usual suspects.
The study found that the other symptoms are being chalked up as “due to stress” or “I’m just getting older. No, no, no. Do not accept feeling like an alien in your own body. Even if you are not yet menopausal, and are in perimenopause, do not accept these symptoms. I urge you! Perimenopause is the prime time for imbalance. Stop it now!
The study was carried out by The Marion Gluck Clinic, a pioneer of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) (They are hormones that have the same chemical structure as your body's own hormones.)
Hormones are the chemical messengers used to communicate between organs, brain & cells. They control every function in your body, right down to the cellular level. Hormone balance is vital to feeling healthy, energetic and youthful. The restoration of declining hormone levels will help you feel GREAT….I like to say “into your 90’s and beyond”. I am over 60. I have been using bio-identical Progesterone (available over the counter) since I was 35 years old.
Now here is the most shocking part: 79% of women were AFRAID of using hormones because of side effects that are connected to HRT. Ladies, these side effects are from synthetics, not bio-identical hormones. This study came out in 2000. We are 16 years down the line! Oh gosh, I have 30 years of experience with hormones and I thought I was making an impact, but 79%?
When advised that BHRT was safe with very rare side effects, and no serious side effects, women were more than willing to suppress their declining hormones.
Ladies, we need to spread the word! Please help me! Want to get started? Want to help a friend? Get a bio-identical Progesterone crème containing 100 mg of micronized progesterone per 2 oz. jar. Progesterone is one of the most beneficial hormones to the human body. It has been my best friend for years. Progesterone can often help balance your estrogen and testosterone levels, too.
