When a new FDA drug-and-money scandal has doctors, US senators, and even the March of Dimes in an uproar, you know it’s bad. A new Action Alert!
A drug which the FDA approved more than half a century ago—which doctors have been prescribing for their patients with high-risk pregnancies through compounding pharmacies with great success—was designated by the FDA an “orphan drug.” Now KV Pharmaceutical has been given the exclusive right of production and sale (not to mention drug trial tax breaks!). They immediately raised the price from $10 per dose to $1,500—simply because they could.
Women are willing to risk health complications, maybe even cancer, on the promise they can stay slim and beat back time. MSN Sometime after her 43rd birthday, Dawn Foley noticed she was beginning to look her age. And she didn’t like it one bit.

THE FOUNTAIN of youth? Some say it’s water, for others, it is exercise; many attribute it to stress management. And what about hormones, what crucial role do they play?
Do we ignore them or nurture their youth-extending abilities? Some dictionaries define death as “loss of hormones.” According to anti-aging medicine advocate Suzanne Sommers in her book “Breakthrough: 8 Steps to Wellness,” there is an approach to hormonal imbalance, which, if left untreated, can lead to weight gain, sleeplessness, emotional rage, loss of libido and ultimately illness.
Progesterone is a hormone made naturally by the body that plays a role in the menstrual cycle and helps maintain a pregnancy. If you have low progesterone levels, your doctor may recommend medication to help raise the amount of progesterone in your body. Though synthetic progesterone may be given, there are some natural ways to help increase progesterone. Before using supplements for this purpose, consult with your health care provider or gynecologist to see if these are safe and appropriate in your situation.
With the increasing data available on the health hazards of HRT, particularly long-term, many more women are considering coming off it but can be unsure of what is involved.

Since the Women’s Health Initiative study ending in 2002, there has been an increasing number of studies confirming that bio-identical hormones are safer than, and superior to, their synthetic counterparts. I have found that women respond better to them, with far fewer side effects. Many women have no difficulty in deciding against synthetic hormones, either because of their experience of the contraceptive pill, or because of side effects (very common in women with a degree of ‘estrogen dominance’). Others have had no such problems, but are uneasy about the accumulating evidence.
Hormone supplements do not provide the essential micro-nutrients we need to make hormones. They do not detoxify the liver or break down excess hormones.

People believe that oestrogen dominance is due to a lack of progesterone. Synthetic progesterone and oestrogen analogues that are present in birth control pills and HRT have adverse effects so let us look at natural ways to boost progesterone. The sweet potato has to be one of the easiest, safest and yet potent of all the natural hormone balancers we have. It is a pity the “professionals” keep trying to deny this every time I submit such articles for publication. Men. If they suffered from hot flushes and got breast cancer it would have all been different!
