Your Menopause Choices!
What You Need to Know!
Due to the media promotion of bioidentical hormones from celebrities, it is of utmost importance that you educate yourself about this pressing issue.
Are you ready for bioidentical hormones? Find out the facts!
Bioidentical hormones have severe toxic side effects. Every testing laboratory has observed the toxic side effects of bioidentical hormones, synthetic hormones and natural progesterone and phytoestrogen creams. It’s documented!
Bioidentical hormones create dependence and your body slows down production of your own natural hormones. Guess what effect this has on your body? Well, if your hormones are not being secreted in proper amounts because you are dependent on a hormone, then the only thing your body can do is age. The hope of anti-aging is just that “a hope”.
Bio-identical hormones are synthesized from wild yam and soy, making it unnatural. For example, a carrot, which is synthesized, is no longer a carrot – it is a synthetic substance.
When a compounding lab makes a bioidentical hormone specifically for you through a health provider, you start using it with great hopes. It is a fact that you may need to have the formula changed several times before finding one formula that stabilized your hormones and then the results are only temporary. As your body deals with stressful situations, your hormone needs change. Sometimes, drastically! Then you need a different formula because your body is confused and can’t make the adjustment itself. It is so bombarded with supposedly bioidentical hormones that it is slowing down in doing what it is supposed to do. The body gets lazy, the adrenal cortisol levels become abnormal. You then get more symptoms.
Possible symptoms of using bioidentical hormones are:
- Weight gain around the buttocks, thighs, middle waist and abdomen.
- Facial hair growth
- Hair loss
“The ONLY hormones that are bioidentical or natural are the ones your body makes.”
Bio-Identical Hormones vs. Homeopathy…
Homeopathy is approved by the FDA, and in 200 years of effective use, no side-effects or toxicity exists.
NuFem Homeopathic Hormone Rejuvenation has a 95% success rate for women with complete hysterectomies, PMS, post-partum depression, hot flashes, mood swings, and fatigue. I recommend you start with a NuFem Saliva Test to get base line hormone levels.
NuFem is the conscious choice, as homeopathy is the catalyst for optimum health and wellness.

Herbs and Menopause…
I like herbs very much but not as a serious answer to hormonal issues. Certain herbs can be effective for temporarily helping hot flashes and other hormonal issues, however, they do not address the cause of the problem. On the other hand, homeopathy does address the cause by re-educating the body to make its own hormones, even if you have had a complete hysterectomy. The reason I created the homeopathic NuFem formulas is because they can be used short term without dependency.
NuFem formulas re-established communication between the entire endocrine system.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is based on the incorrect assumption that your body becomes incapable of producing appropriate amounts of hormones simply because we reach a certain age. In reality, hormone problems are a function of how healthy you are, not how old you are. Another incorrect assumption is that your body can not make hormones if you have had a hysterectomy. It is a fact that hormones can be stimulated to healthy levels even in this situation. Two thousand before and after NuFem saliva tests on hundreds of doctor’s patients have proven this with a non-commercial independent laboratory.
One of the worst things you can do to your body is use hormones, including biodentical, natural progesterone creams and HGH. This ages your body, as it gets lazy and slows down producing its own hormones.
Hormones are not the only substance that can be harmful. We must even be careful using digestive enzymes. The more enzymes you take the lazier the body gets in producing it’s own enzymes. They are helpful for short-term therapy until you locate the cause of your problems. Yes, it is true that as we age our body makes less digestive enzymes like HCL, however, this is a product of how we internalize emotions and stress along with our diet.
You will be hearing more information in 2004 about hormone replacement and the health problems it causes, including natural hormones. Remember this and you will not be hooked by false claims from anyone.
Basically, we need to take matters into our own hands through educate, and self-empowerment. Then we will make wise choices. Using any hormones on or in your body will undoubtedly create symptoms, toxify your body and increase your biological age because your body develops dependence for these hormones. You see, our “Biological Age” usually does not match our chronological age. People who are not following a healthy lifestyle and eating well will have an older “Biological Age” of the body. Sometimes, so much older that pathology occurs and death is right around the corner.
Everyone can benefit from a NuFem Saliva test to see your hormone baseline levels and a Liver/Gallbladder/Blood comprehensive detoxification system. This will decrease your biological age!
Please enjoy my website, as it is my sincere desire to empower to you make wise, healthy choices that produce vitality and optimum health.

A popular cream that eases the symptoms of menopause exposes women to higher levels of the hormone progesterone than has been commonly thought, researchers have found.
Pro-Gest, one of more than two dozen creams containing natural progesterone, is a widely used alternative to synthetic hormone therapies that have been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer and heart disease. Millions of tubes of progesterone cream are sold annually.
Because they can be purchased over the counter, the creams are generally considered less potent, and therefore less harmful, than federally regulated progesterone pills.
But research reported Thursday has raised questions about the creams’ safety. A group of women that used Pro-Gest to relieve hot flashes and night sweats and a group that took the hormone pill Prometrium later had the same levels of progesterone in their bloodstreams, said Dr. Anne Hermann, who conducted the study at Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, N.Y.
Dr. Hermann presented the results at a conference of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics in Florida.
“Millions of women are using these creams, thinking that because they’re natural and sold over the counter they are safe,” she said. “The reality is that they are putting themselves at risk.”
However, Dr. Deborah Moskowitz, director of research and development education for Emerita, the division of Transitions for Health Inc. that makes Pro-Gest, said there was no solid evidence that natural progesterone carried health risks.
“The fact is that progestin and progesterone are different,” Dr. Moskowitz said.
The findings come at a time when hormone use is sharply declining. In 2002, the Women’s Health Initiative study found a heightened risk of breast cancer and heart disease among women who used a common hormone therapy. That study looked at synthetic progesterone, or progestin, taken in combination with estrogen to relieve hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause.
Natural progesterone is considered to carry some of the same health risks as its synthetic version, “until research shows otherwise,” said Susan Cruzan, a spokeswoman for the Food and Drug Administration.
“We’re asking manufacturers to do further studies,” Ms. Cruzan said. “Until we have that information, women who use any of these products should work with their doctors to use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration of time.”
Dr. Moskowitz said that the Women’s Health Initiative “did not look at natural progesterone, and it didn’t even look at progestin by itself.”
She also said there were flaws in Dr. Hermann’s research. The study looked at women who applied 40 milligrams of Pro-Gest twice a day, she said, a higher dose than recommended. On its Web site, the company recommends a dose of 20 milligrams twice day, but says that women can use as much as 40 milligrams twice a day. The researchers said the dosage used by their subjects was consistent with the directions on the cream’s label.
Dr. Hermann, however, said that the dosage issue was moot because many women use the creams like body lotion, slathering them on without regard to dosage.
