SAFETY !!
If you are approaching Menopause or there already...   you NEED Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for your continued health in your future 40 or more years of life. HRT is NOT nearly as dangerous as the lack of it!


SAY YES to TESTOSTERONE
The biggest flaw in commonly prescribed female HRT (hormone replacement therapy) to date is the complete omission of one of the 3 essential sexual hormone groups, namely the androgens (testosterone).
Do you have backaches, arthritic pain in joints, migraine headaches, plummeting libido, no energy, and an inability to think clearly? After hot flashes and vaginal dryness, these are the most common menopausal complaints. No these are not signs of a disappearing estrogen or progesterone supply; these physical ills are the result of testosterone starvation. You NEED this essential hormone to protect your health.


JUST SAY NO to PILLS
The second most egregious error in common gynecological practice is administration of hormones via the oral route. Very little of these substances survive the digestion process, thus treatment with pills is most often completely ineffective. Since prescribed amounts of hormones in pill form must necessarily be 75% in excess of what is actually needed in order to see any benefits, it follows that any health risks are increased by 75% as well. Patches, compounded creams, and other parenteral forms of replacement hormones are available. Demand them!


YOUR OPTIONS
for SAFE & EFFECTIVE HRT
It is unlikely that your doctor will advise you of ALL the currently available choices that you have for hormone replacement therapy. Complicated legalities and ill-advised protocols surround many HRT products and methods. This section will help to fill in that information gap. Ultimately it is your health, and you have an ethical right to this information. Click on the icon at left to learn your options for safe HRT that works.


RECOMMENDED READING
Books by a variety of authors guaranteed to give you a wider perspective about hormones and their essential functions.


ANTI-AGING THERAPY
with Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC) and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
While hormone replacement therapy is the single best thing that you can do to prevent the ravages of time from robbing you of your health and quality of life, ALC/ALA is probably the next most effective anti-aging step you can take. This amino acid/antioxidant combination is not a substitute for HRT, but it is of nearly equal significance. ALC/ALA retards the death of renal and hepatic cells as we age. Through a cellular action ALC/ALA repairs neural pathways damaged from aging, diabetes, injuries and other causes. These neural repairs reverse and slow the progression of dementia in Alzheimers patients, reduce cardiac and other risk factors of diabetic neuropathy, and cure erectile dysfunction in affected men.

Pardon our on-going face-lift.

I am developing a more user friendly design for this web site, and breaking up the original 3 pages into many smaller indexed pages. (The old format reads like a large metropolitan telephone directory.) I am also adding a lot of new information and integrating this Hormone Replacement Site with the Acetyl-l-carnitine/Alpha Lipoic Acid web site.

This overhaul is going to take awhile to accomplish. So please bear with me and forgive empty links, blank pages, and grammatical and spelling errors. This site is a work in progress for the time being, but it WILL get done! (Rome wasn't built in a day!) Thank you for visiting and hope you find something of use or value here.

MISSION PURPOSE


The purpose of this website is to impart information about menopause and hormone replacement. You have an ethical right to this information.

If these pages protect even one other menopausal woman from floundering about in the dark as I did for 10 years with declining health, grasping at shreds of information in an effort to find out what was wrong with me and how to fix it, then the effort of building this site will have been worth it.

Recently it has been suggested to me (twice!) that I should try this or that to convince people to think as I do. Curiously, in both instances, it was a man who made this suggestion. Maybe it's a guy thing??

While I appreciate the well meant tips on how to get other women to follow my recommendations for hormone replacement therapy, I want to state for the record that this is NOT my intent. I have NO desire to make others think (or act) as I do. In health, politics, philosophy or any other arena of life. Virtually all of society's problems can be traced to someone or someones' efforts to manipulate the rest of the populace. My most cherished commodities are physical and mental autonomy, and attempting to rob someone else of theirs is a foreign (and unethical) concept to me.

My only advice to you, my sisters, is this: think for yourself and do not blindly follow anyone, including me.

What you decide to do with the information on these pages is your own affair. My aim is to provide you with information that is not readily forthcoming from the medical community and to debunk the misinformation that is being spread by the press and the FDA about the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy.

Armed with this information you can cure your migraines, backaches, arthritic pain, restore bone density, healthy vaginal tissues and libido, and ward off serious debilitating diseases that will otherwise be hovering at your door as a result of hormone deprivation once your ovaries shut down. Or not. Or partly. But you will be able to make an informed decision with all the puzzle pieces on the table before you.
