Don't be the next victim. By C. W. Randolph, M.D

When I was in medical school and residency, I was taught that estrogen replacement therapy did not cause weight gain. I was told that for female patients who are post-menopausal, osteoporosis is inevitable. I was told that Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) should be recommended for most women after menopause.


As a practicing physician I soon learned that all of that was wrong. Not only wrong, it was dangerously wrong.


The truth came with time, it came with the breakthrough research of Dr. Lee, it came with treating thousands of women in my own clinic, and with six years of study, charting and follow-ups. 


For years I have been actively treating symptoms normally treated with HRT with Natural Progesterone Cream. This cream I found relieves many symptoms related to PMS, pre-menopause, menopause, post-hysterectomy, osteoporosis, breast cancer, infertility, migraines, acne, skin care, menstrual irregularity and cramps.

Everything that HRT once claimed to do, only without the side-effects.


Using Natural Progesterone Cream you can replace the female human hormones with identical hormones in a balanced fashion. I have been treating women for years in this manner with excellent results.

Why would any Doctor put women on a regimen of synthetic estrogen or synthetic progestin for the rest of their lives? Why subject them to weight gain, increased risk for heart attacks and strokes, not to mention breast cancer?  Clearly every Doctor should know by now that HRT is not the miracle cure it was once thought to be.

Last year the Journal of the American Medical Association reported the results from a study, involving 16,000 healthy women aged 50 and over. The study was scheduled to run for eight years but was stopped after five because HRT was found to be causing an increase in heart attacks, strokes and breast cancer. This caused a shockwave throughout the medical community.


           In May of this year, The New England Journal of Medicine reported that HRT "had no clinically meaningful benefits on health-related quality of life"


Also in May this year,  a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that taking HRT doubles an older woman's risk of dementia, including, Alzheimer's disease


For those of us who have spend years developing, promoting and using alternate methods to HRT the new research vindicates what we have been saying for all along.


That should be the end of it, right?  RIGHT?


Far from it, Doctors all over the Country are still over prescribing HRT. Hormone replacement therapy is one of the biggest-selling drugs of all time. HRT still has revenues in the billions.


You need to take control of your own destiny.


If your Doctor is telling you need to go on HRT or you are currently on HRT then you need to consult with your Doctor right away and ask him if the new research changes his recommended treatment for you. Ask him if he has kept up on the latest research in natural hormone replacement therapy as a safe alternate to HRT. Get a second opinion.


Donít be the next victim.


Already some of the drug makers providing the drugs for HRT are involved in HRT related class actions suits, already many major medical centers are rethinking HRT. It will not get better, it will only get worse.  Educate yourself. Donít be the next victim.
