So here is the second part on no magic pill just plain hard work. I have mentioned hormone therapy before, but let me clarify, this is not your drug companies solution to womens menopause but an all natural approach to our body chemistry for men and women. Doesn’t it make sense that as we age, all our levels of hormones go down? Infact, what doesn’tÂ decrease and start to fall apart on our bodies as we age?Â Would you be willing to spend yourÂ time andÂ money if you could reverse that process? Well most people have, look how huge the health care industry andÂ alternative medicine industry have become. That just shows us that people don’t want to decline in health or our ability to enjoy life. ButÂ who can afford to get their message out? Drug companies! Don’t get me wrong I am not against drug companiesÂ per se just the assertion that they have the cure for everything. Unfortunately, those that do have a really healthly cure don’t have the money for advertising because their products can be copied. They are natural and you can’t patent what is found in nature. Bio-identical hormones fall under that category and they work so well that drug companies and their cronies in congress are trying to stop all compounding pharmacies from making bio-identical hormonesÂ and individualizing each patients formulas to their body chemistry. TheyÂ want itÂ to fall under FDA controlÂ so thatÂ all compounds would be the same and they could more easily regulate them. Unfortunately the cost would go up and nothing could be individualized. That is the problem with drug companies Hormone Replacement Therapy’s, one size fits all they don’t work because nobody’s body chemistry is the same. Last time I checked with my pharmacist at the compounding pharmacy the bill in congress hadn’t passed, I pray it doesn’t. I don’t know what I would do, I can’t imagine going back, so many things have changed, improved for the better and made me feel like my old self. Interestingly a side effect of that has been an improvement in my RLS. I am not a medical doctor but I am the best doctor for my own body as we all should be. I know when things don’t work and when they do, especially when they are not masked by a handful of one size fits all drugs. Drugs that have been genetically altered so they can be patented andÂ have so many harmful side effects that I can’t possibly keep tract of all of them. I know I am quite passionate about Bio-identicals, but I can speak from a voice of experience and I know how they can change your lifeÂ for the better.
You can go online and research Bio-indenticals and compounding pharmacies to find a doctor that works with them in any state. It isn’t cheap, but worth the price and I don’t think it even comes close to what it costs for regular drugs. However, for those of you that might not still be motivated to check it out, I am going to list some of the symptoms that we experience as our hormone levels drop in my next blog and then I would likeÂ you to ask yourself is thatÂ you and what isÂ your good health and peace of mind worth?
More things to think about.
