We have known this for about 2 decades: hormonal therapy causes cancer.
No woman should be on any hormones!
You can read the latest article published about this topic:
“Type and timing of menopausal hormone therapy and breast cancer risk: individual participant meta-analysis of the worldwide epidemiological evidence” in the journal The Lancet.
All types of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), with the exception of vaginally-inserted estrogen, are associated with an increased risk of developing breast cancer, concludes a large meta-analysis.
That means pills, creams and hormone pellets. And we are talking about both estrogen and progesterone.
I have seen a trend where more doctors recommend the pellets as opposed to other types of hormones.
But those pellets are very dangerous.
First, you get the constant exposure to hormones 24/7. All day long, those hormones are being released in your bloodstream.
Second, those hormones are NOT bioidentical. They claim that they are identical to our hormones, which is not the case at all.
There are several sources that they get the hormones from. It can be from horses, pigs or plant-derived.
But none of them are exactly the same as our own hormones. They are similar but not identical!
This is a scam and a lie!
For this reason, most women have side effects from those hormones over time.
Dr. John Lee wrote several books on this topic.
He does not recommend hormones to women except in some cases. For example, in cases of complete hysterectomy, where the body does not have the organs to make hormones. He then recommends some hormones, but the prescribing doctor needs to closely monitor their patients.
From experience, there are 2 major consequences of using hormones.
They affect the thyroid function.
I have seen several women using them and developing hypothyroid over time. The main reason they do this is by disrupting the conversion of T4 into T3, the bioactive thyroid hormones. When T3 goes down, you start having hypothyroidism symptoms like weight gain, insomnia, hair loss, etc.
In addition, those hormones cause adrenal fatigue. Your adrenals play an important part in the production of both estrogen and progesterone by your body. When you provide those hormones (cream, pills or pellets), your adrenal function is being disrupted leading to sluggish function.
I have seen women taking “bioidentical” progesterone and/or estrogen for years and decades. They all had adrenal fatigue because of it.
People would say that progesterone is safe. Yes, it is safer than estrogen, but it still affects the body (adrenal and thyroid), even the “bioidentical” ones.
For this reason, I do NOT recommend for women to be on hormones unless they had a complete hysterectomy.
I had this woman who came to me because of weight gain. It started after they injected her with the hormone pellet that contained both estrogen and progesterone. Soon after she developed low thyroid function. Then after she was diagnosed with adrenal issues. Now her uterus is bleeding nonstop (she had not had a cycle in years). Her doctor says that she has to have a complete hysterectomy. Those hormone pellets destroyed her body!
Even after MHT was stopped, some excess risk could persist for a decade, with the size of risk dependent on the duration of use.
“Use of menopausal hormone therapy for 10 years results in about twice the excess breast cancer risk associated with 5 years of use,” said coauthor Gillian Reeves, PhD, from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom, in a statement.
“But there appears to be little risk from use of menopausal hormone therapy for less than 1 year, or from topical use of vaginal estrogens that are applied locally as creams or pessaries and are not intended to reach the bloodstream.”
The risk for breast cancer was higher for products containing estrogen-progestagen combinations vs those with estrogen alone, especially if progestagen was given daily as opposed to intermittently.
The researchers estimate that, if this association is largely causal, then the use of MHT in western nations since 1990 has already led to approximately 1 million cases of breast cancer, out of a total of 20 million.
One million women who had breast cancer who should not have!
Five years of MHT use beginning at age 50 would increase the incidence of breast cancer by about 1 additional case in every 50 users of estrogen plus daily progestagen; by 1 additional case in every 70 users of estrogen plus intermittent progestagen; and by 1 additional case in every 200 users of estrogen used alone.
This new study confirms the findings of an association between MHT and breast cancer reported in a previous meta-analysis (Lancet. 1997;350:1047-1059), but also adds new information on the duration of the risk, and how the risk varies with different types of products.
This question I have for women who currently take hormones: why are you OK to band-aid your problems with hormones while you could actually fix them once and for all?
Yes, I have seen it over and over. Your body can make their own hormones back when we provide the right nutrition.
Nutrition is always the key 😊
God bless y’all 😊
