Why Hormone Replacement Therapy is Not a Healthy Choice

Hormone replacement therapy drugs are a multi-billion dollar industry.

Millions of women and men opt into HRT, whether pharmaceutical or bio-identical, each year in hopes of reviving their libido, reducing menopausal symptoms, or as means to address numerous hormone imbalances.

In fact, there was a time in my life, after I cured hypothyroidism in myself, but still suffered from pituitary tumor symptoms and could not get pregnant, that I tried both—the prescription and bio-identical, compounded hormones.

On both, the symptoms were devastating. I did not feel an ounce better! I felt much worse.

Medications pushed my thyroid to under-perform again, I was swollen, I could not sleep or breath.

The bio-identical progesterone lozenges I was taking, were not much better.  The dosage that my ND prescribed to me, if I took it all at ones, within minutes made me feel dizzy, unable to concentrate or to function. I remember sitting by my computer, staring into the space, holding up my head with my hands, because that’s all I could do to keep myself from falling over, curling into a ball and praying to be gone from this world.

I got off both, and finally found my natural cure.

But millions of women and men, go through same, or even worse side effects daily without finding theirs.

Hormone replacement therapy drugs are a multi-billion dollar industry. Millions opt into HRT without knowing all serious possible side effects of doing so.

Few, however, know the risk they are taking by adding HRT to their regimen.

While numerous studies have shown that hormone replacement therapy is not only a bad, but a risky health choice, doctors often fail to tell their patients the whole truth, dispensing HRT drugs freely.  Only few will warn their patients about possible side effects and recommend a low dose, short exposure to HRT.

However, the studies show that even short term exposure to hormone replacement therapy can be very dangerous.

Today you will learn about the risks you are facing, the moment you agree to HRT, whether of pharmaceutical or bio-identical grade.
