The following is an excerpt from a letter I received that I think you'll find beneficial. Please share it with all of your women friends.
About 5 years ago, Dr. Anthony Zava spoke in Glendale about hormones. He is a research scientist who has studied breast cancer tissue for some 30 years, something like 25,000 samples of breast cancer tissue under the microscope. He wrote a book with Dr. John Lee titled, What your doctor may not tell you about breast cancer. His presentation was fascinating, explaining in great detail with graphs and charts how the hormones affect the body, how they interact with each other, and the great difference between natural hormone compounds and chemical drugs that mimmic hormones, but are actually harmful, you know, like premarin and provera, etc.
I will never forget a few things he said, the most amazing being that natural progesterone, if supplemented for women at the approximate age of 37, and balanced with estrogen, would all but wipe out breast cancer. Progesterone stops the cells from dividing, while estrogen increases cell division. He also said that women should get a hormone panel as early as possible, long before menopause, or perimenopause, so they have a history of what hormone levels they naturally produce when their hormones are still at their peak. He said that starting at about the age of 37 women begin to slowly produce less progesterone, causing a hormone imbalance, which is the cause of breast cancer.
He spoke about the different types of breast cancer, and said that the breast cancers that are the killers, do not show up on mammograms early enough. They are so rapidly growing that a difference of 2 to 3 weeks can make a difference whether they are detected or not. After this lengthy technical presentation he gave all participants an opportunity to ask him questions. He answered each question from the audience in depth, spending at least 5 to 15 minutes on each one. This question and answer went on for hours. Women asked about cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, figromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, urinary tract infections, and to each he gave an informative explanation, and he insisted that women need to continue to supplement with natural hormones for the rest of their life.
The following evening he spoke to doctors and medical personnel. I did not attend that session. He did add that he has never found breast cancer in any woman who was supplementing with natural progesterone at the time they got breast cancer, although in a few samples he detected some progestrone, and upon inquiry, found they had been taking natural progesterone at some time before the cancer had developed.
He emphasized over and over that women must supplement with the natural hormones as they begin to stop producing them, for the rest of their lives, or they will be susceptible to heart disease, cancer, oesteoporosis, etc.
He emphasized taking the hormones transdermally, although there are some benefits I have recently heard by taking them sublingual. Dr. Zava runs a lab out on the west coast, called ZRT Laboratory. I have submitted saliva samples to them, through my doctor's office. Dr. Patricia Dolhun, Madison Medical, is the top notch gynecologist in our Milwaukee area on hormones. She has two offices, one in Mequon and one downtown. She has prescribed the bioidentical, natural hormones for me and others. Women's Pharmacy in Madison and Medi RX in Glendale and Cedarburg are the two compounding pharmacists in our area.
There are many sources of natural progesterone cream. In Madison, you can consult with the pharmacist at Community Pharmacy downtown or make an appointment with your doctor to get a saliva test for hormone levels.
