Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) June 2, 2009
Considering that the Women's Well being Initiative Study outcomes had been released in 2002, females - and their physicians - have known that synthetic hormone replacement drugs (such as the popularly prescribed Premarin and Prempro) drastically improve a woman's risk of breast and uterine cancers, heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer's disease. Now a new study presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology says that females who take synthetic hormones to counter the symptoms of menopause are a lot more probably to die from lung cancer. Does the mounting data mean that menopausal ladies have the choice of either suffering via menopause or putting their lives at danger? "Not necessarily," says C. W. Randolph, Jr., M.D.
According to Dr. Randolph, co-founder of The All-natural Hormone Institute and author of From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, "Synthetic hormones are toxic to the physique simply because the molecular structure of these hormones has been altered to be different from the molecular structure of the hormones produced by the ovaries. Why? So that these drugs can be patented. Premarin is truly a peculiar cocktail of synthetic estrogens derived from the urine of pregnant mares. No wonder it triggers side effects when introduced into the human program. With so a lot of hazardous and potentially lethal side effects brought on by synthetic hormones and the millions of females at risk, it is thoughts-boggling that these drugs stay on the market place right now."
Randolph says females suffer symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight obtain, low libido and foggy thinking in the course of menopause since the aging ovaries can no longer generate and sustain optimum hormone levels. To eliminate signs and symptoms and support optimum physical, emotional and mental functioning, girls need to have a safe and efficient alternative for boosting lagging hormone levels. He recommends bioidentical hormones, which are synthesized in a laboratory to have precisely the same molecular structure as the hormones originally made by the ovaries.
"Awareness of bioidentical hormones has not too long ago surged as a result of celebrity tv shows like Oprah, The Physicians and Dr. Phil's plan featuring his wife, Robin McGraw," says Genie James, Executive Director of the Natural Hormone Institute. "But bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) ought to not be regarded as a celebrity fad. For decades, medical investigation and clinical studies have documented BHRT's safety and efficacy. The dilemma is that -simply because bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by the body - they cannot be patented. So, there hasn't been a profit motivation for the pharmaceutical market to educate physicians and promote bioidentical hormones as a viable alternative."
"The negative news is that many physicians are untrained as to how to diagnose hormone imbalances and, then, prescribe an individualized prescription. The very good news is that forward-thinking bio-pharmaceutical organizations (such as Ascend Therapeutics, Ther-Rx and Upsher-Smith Laboratories) are also emerging on the market place," says Randolph. "The downside is that these companies manufacture bioidentical hormones in a 1-size-fits-all standardized dosing, the upside is that they are protected and -for several physicians - a lot more very easily accessible than compounded formulations."
According to Randolph and James, girls have safe and efficient options to hazardous synthetic hormones. With bioidentical hormones available in either a individualized compounded formulation or a manufactured standardized dosing, they question why any physician would ever expose a female patient to the lethal wellness threat of taking synthetic hormones. "Particularly in light of these new findings, we really feel it's crucial that females understand there are safe, successful alternatives for them," says Randolph.
