I really enjoyed your information! It is wonderful to find like-minded practitioners out there.
I work for alternative doctors in the Houston TX area and we treat with bioidentical hormones. We find so many women in particular whose hormone production has been interfered with because of birth control pills, tubal ligation, hysterectomy or uterine ablation as well as the environmental factors that put estrogen into male and female bodies and throw them out of balance. We have found people of all ages by the tens of thousands with low hormone levels because either the glands were not functioning properly or had been altered.
Many people’s hormones, such as thyroid, have never been at adequate levels for them to be healthy.
The majority of women’s progesterone levels decline by age 35 because our ovaries have aged and this is the type imbalance that causes all female problems all the way to the cancers.
Others purchase HGH products -- or products that claim to increase your body's own production of HGH -- in the form of pills and sprays. Companies that market these products on TV infomercials or online claim they turn back your body's biological clock, reducing fat, building muscle, restoring hair growth and color, strengthening the immune system, normalizing blood sugar , increasing energy and improving sex life, sleep quality, vision , and memory. However, the Federal Trade Commission has seen no reliable evidence to support the claim that these products have the same effects as prescription HGH, which is always given by injection. Taken orally, HGH is digested by the stomach before it can be absorbed into the body.
“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”
