You recently may have read my article about troche.  For you, I have since done more research and had to let you know more information about troche.  You don’t read or hear that much about troche, but it is quickly becoming more popular.  What are troches and and do they work best for you when using bio-identical hormones?

Connect The Dots…Plastics to Hormones In the largest study ever done on the effects of perfluorocarbons (PFCs) on womens hormone systems, West Virginia University researchers found in blood tests that higher levels of these man- made chemicals are associated with early menopausal symptoms in females aged 42 to 64. Premature menopause has been linked to a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular disease. Researchers collected data from 25,957 women, measuring serum concentration levels of PFCs and the female hormone estradiol, and reported a definite association between... (Read More ...)

So you and your doctor have decided to replace your decreasing hormones with natural hormones instead of the synthetic alternatives.  Congratulations!  But don’t stop here.  The next puzzle piece is how to get the hormones inside your body where they can exert their beneficial effects. And don’t be too quick to swallow the obvious:  a capsule or tablet.  The problem is, many of the benefits of natural HRT will be lost as the hormones go through the process of digestion. None of your circulating hormones are secreted into your digestive tract as a means of total body distribution.  Glands... (Read More ...)

Recently the FDA has announced a policy restricting the use of Estriol, an estrogen produced by the human body. At the same time, no reason for this capricious policy has been cited. However, in recent years the FDA has tried to adopt other strange policies restricting patient access to compounded medications, and has lost in both the Federal and Supreme Courts.

Synthetic hormone manufacturer Wyeth has been involved in previous attempts because... (Read More ...)

(This confirms the research we reported to you in 2008.)  This month’s Archives... (Read More ...)
