Millions of women are still getting estrogen HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). If a women has ever been to a doctor for help with menopause, they know about this.
A new study shows a connection between synthetic estrogen in HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and asthma. Women on HRT have a 54% higher risk. 1
That’s bad news on its own, but when you consider that lung function is your number one risk factor for death, it’s tragic.
HRT “therapy” isn’t therapy. What they’re giving you isn’t a real hormone, and it does nothing to help you with the real problems of menopause.
For most women, too much estrogen is the problem. Not too little.
Remember, you get extra estrogen from your food and your environment. Only looking at estrogen gives you only half the picture.
If you’re a woman, the missing link is progesterone, the “other” female hormone.
When menopause starts, progesterone falls to almost zero. Estrogen, on the other hand, only falls about 40 percent.
Progesterone maintains the healthy features you may not want to give up like:
- Using fat better
- Elevating your mood
- Keeping your blood sugar normal
- Boosting your sex drive
- Protecting against some cancers
- Bone building 2
In clinical trials, natural progesterone proved effective against bone loss. 3 Natural progesterone also proved to help reduce menopause symptoms without adding to breast cancer risks like prescription drugs do. 4
Research shows that natural progesterone replacement in aging females helps to improve insulin sensitivity, thereby reducing the risk of diabetes. 5
