Dying of Cancer is something we all fear.

Having a heart attack, although it seems more remote, because we don’t hear about it on television every day, would probably kill us where we stand. But the possibility of losing our minds and independence and not even really knowing it is truly the most dreaded potential out there ahead of us.

Every day, we’re all one day closer to Alzheimer’s disease.

Over four million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, which affects one in two people over the age of eighty. That means if you’re in a room with one person right now, it will, sooner or later, down the line, be you or him.

And it’s completely preventable, according to the gold standard of research. Dementia, memory loss, and Alzheimer’s may, in fact, be preventable with natural hormones prescribed in a cycle that mimics the rhythmic, escalating, and descending doses your body naturally produced when you were young; this is not the case with conventional synthetic pharmaceutical HRT.

Hormones you biologically produced in your brain like estrogen and progesterone orchestrate, directly, and indirectly, your entire nervous system. Your nervous system, under the control of directives from the brain, includes your heart, stomach, liver, pancreas, and immune system. All of these organs were created from the neural crest when you were an embryo. The neural crest is the visible backbone of the tadpole fetus in the pictures of life in utero.
