YAY and REALLY???

Yay for Dr. Christine Northrup, who appeared on the Dr. Oz show recently and told the viewing audience that “no women should be on synthetic hormones ever! Period!”. When Dr. Oz asked her why doctors, then, just don’t prescribe the natural hormones like progesterone, her response was right on.

Response to AOL article, “Is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Safe?”

Today I woke up to emails from clients, sending me the link to the article above , with the same old tired arguments and inaccuracies; and wanting me to blog my response FOR what we do, which is to create bio-identical hormone therapy customized for each woman who has a hormone imbalance issue. So here we go! LET THE GAMES begin with the list of inaccuracies:

Cheri’s Story

I wrote a blog that was posted on December 15, 2010, entitled “Happy Holidays from The Cottage,” where I blogged about a 56 year old client, Cheri, who had come through our facility to “get tested, get treated and get better,” and really only got to the “get tested” piece because her doctor did not sign off on our recommendation for her natural hormone balance. Not only did he NOT sign off, he called us at our Piqua Medicine Shoppe to let us know AND told us she would be going “another route.” He prescribed for Cheri a synthetic drug called Estratest, that is conjugated estrogens and synthetic testosterone.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS!

I got an email today from Janice: “I gave my saliva test results of my hormone levels to my OB/GYN and she advised me that I don’t need any hormone treatment or supplements. I’m no longer interested in this.” I wasn’t sure whether to laugh hysterically or do a kick boxing session! Either way, I feel badly for Janice! She obviously hasn’t read my blog of May 18 entitled “The Truth About BHRT” written by 3 ob/gyns.

Making the Best Choices for Your Best Health!!

You know how I love my emails! This is one I received recently from Jodi that did not make my day! She writes, “Lyn, I am sorry to report that I unfortunately have to discontinue my natural hormone therapy due to the financial aspect. I now have a high deductible insurance plan and have to pay out of pocket for all of my health needs. Thank you for everything and if my insurance plan should change in the future, I will meet with you again.” Please understand that I totally get it! Really I do!
