"Although some pharmaceutical companies are now manufacturing standard dosages of BHRT, it is more typical for a doctor to write a prescription for the exact amount of the hormones that your body needs. A compounding pharmacist will then mix your individualized prescription on site. If you have never had your prescriptions filled by a compounding pharmacist, here are some facts you should know: • Every compounding pharmacy is licensed and inspected by the State Pharmacy Board."

"Once a doctor has determined which hormones are deficient, he or she can write a prescription for a formulation of BHRT to address your unique needs. Patients come to see me from all over the world because it's not always easy to find a physician who has experience diagnosing hormone imbalances and BHRT as the preferred treatment. BHRT is not yet taught in medical schools, and most physicians remain uneducated about it. However, since the World Health Institute has begun detailing the significant health risks of synthetic hormone replacement, this trend is shifting."

"If symptoms of hormone imbalance persist or return when you are using a regimen of bio-identical progesterone cream and foods and supplements to support hormone balance, then the balance of your other hormones has also shifted and will require attention. Women in their thirties or forties who enter abrupt artificial menopause as a result of a complete hysterectomy should be placed on a full regimen of bio-identical hormone replacement. As they age, some women sail through natural menopause with the help of the three-step plan only."

"It will give you a lifetime of balanced hormones, a flat belly, and better health. Is there any reason you should not get started today? PART WHERE YOUR BELLY FAT CAME FROM AND WHY IT won't BUDGE My guess is that you picked up this book because, over the last few years, you have put on ten, twenty, thirty, or even forty extra pounds around your abdomen, hips, and thighs. The extra weight makes you feel uncomfortable and unattractive."

"It just so happens that the hormones psychologists call stress hormones are the same ones that can significantly impact blood glucose levels, and that these hormones (e.g., Cortisol, epinephrine [also known as adrenaline], norepinephrine, and growth hormone) can have a serious negative impact on glucose metabolism unless they are controlled. Fortunately, simple stress-management techniques can be very successful at controlling hormone and glucose levels in people with diabetes when they are practiced regularly."

"Many such studies were tainted because it is virtually impossible to enlist women for study who have not taken some form of exogenous hormones?the birth-control pill, the morning-after pill, or HRT—at some point in their lives. Consequently, none of the studies has a clean control group of true "nontakers," with which to compare results. Women who take hormones now are compared with women who have taken hormones in the past. Both situations carry a cancer risk. The same "tainting" would apply to these prayer studies."

"Furthermore, any notions of the use of radiation in cellular communication were utterly swept aside in the middle of the twentieth century, with the discovery of hormones and the birth of biochemistry, which proposed that everything could be explained by hormones or chemical reactions." By the time that Popp had his light machine, he was more or less on his own with regard to a radiation theory of DNA. Nevertheless, he doggedly pressed on with his experiments, learning more about the properties of this mysterious light."

"The greater the stress, the higher the output of hormones such as adrenaline. There are three categories of steroid hormones: mineralocorticoids, which regulate the balance of fluid in the body; glucocorticoids, which perform several fimctions, including the control of blood pressure; and sex hormones, estrogens (female hormones) and androgens (male hormones). We'll look more closely at estrogens and their role in headache later on in this chapter."

"They can also disrupt other hormones, including testosterone, progesterone, and thyroid hormones. The presence of hormone disrupters in hundreds of industrial and consumer products is being blamed for twice as many girls as boys being born in some areas of the world. Hormone disrupters are also blamed for the birth defects and developmental disorders, especially in males, that have been identified over recent decades. Lab testing in animals has identified dozens of "gender bender" ingredients in common household products."

"Although estrogenic hormones enhance the growth of livestock by as much as 20 percent, many consumers were becoming wary of the use of hormones and other animal drugs.43 "My brother and sister-in-law were shopping at a health food store and they found that a lot of their friends and acquaintances were looking for beef that was raised without hormones and antibiotics," he said. "So we took some calves and fattened them naturally, and we called them natural beef." Initially, they met opposition from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which argued that there was no definition for natural beef."

"For example, adrenal hormones and sex hormones require cholesterol as part of the structure of their hormones. The human body is extremely efficient. As it is making cholesterol it uses various by-products of the production process for other important metabolic functions. Branching off from this main production line are various production-line side roads that are also vital to health. They include: 1. The activation of selenium genes involved with the formation of glutathione (GSH), a cell's primary antioxidant."

"Women who take hormones now are compared with women who have taken hormones in the past. Both situations carry a cancer risk. The same "tainting" would apply to these prayer studies. People in the "treatment" groups getting prayed for are being compared with patients whose relatives are praying for them. The large prayer studies had other basic flaws. In both the Benson and the Krucoff studies, the people praying did not know the patients and so would not have had a strong motivation to heal, as the "senders" had in the Love Study."

"This led the authors to conclude that hormones like cortisone whose secretion is augmented by stressful stimuli can act synergistically with other hormones to maintain homeostasis when the levels of the stress-related hormones bear a specific relation to the concentrations of the other hormones. A number of substances of microbiologic (Farrow et al., 1978; Kaemmerer and Kietzmann, 1983) or plant origin (Brekhman and Dardymov, 1969; Ciplea and Richter, 1988; Wagner et al., 1994) have shown adaptogenic effects in experimental animals."

"For instance, people's positivity predicts lower levels of stress-related hormones19 and higher levels of growth-related20 and bond-related hormones.21 Positivity also sends out more dopamine22 and opioids,23 enhances immune system functioning,24 and diminishes inflammatory responses to stress.25 With positivity you are literally steeped in a different biochemical stew. Perhaps it's not surprising, then, that positivity brings lower blood pressure,26 less pain,27 fewer colds,28 and better sleep.29 People high on positivity also have lower disease risks."

"Changes in diet can alter the concentrations of nutrients and hormones in blood and can change body energy stores. These factors in turn can have an impact on the initial signaling cascade and various stages of protein synthesis. The availability of macronutrients has been shown to have an impact on gene expression after exercise. Muscle glycogen content, for example, is a potent modulator of the resting and contraction-induced AMPK and MAPK responses. At rest, AMPK activity was 2.5-fold higher in a low-glycogen versus a high-glycogen state."

"The hormones that build the muscles are diminished. "So yes, I am sensitive about my age," he said. "If someone tells you the assistant on your heart surgery is in his 90s, well, that's not a comfortable thought. But the way I see it, the cardiac surgeons who want me there to assist them can judge my ability better than I can. And when I start to do less than top-quality work, I trust them not to use me." Eventually, he won't renew his license, he added. "And a deficit in mental or physical ability may appear at any time and make the decision for me."

"Since then, the Magic Foundation had continued to accept money from Genentech and other corporate sellers of hormones to supplement the membership dues and donations from the public that it receives. The foundation also had continued to recommend hormone injections to short children and their parents and describe the drugs in ways the manufacturers could not do without breaking the law. A story published in the foundation's glossy magazine that I picked up at a pediatricians' conference in 2005 was entitled "Me and My Growth Hormone." The story began, "I was short."

"Precocious puberty," as it is called, can happen because of foods such as chicken and milk that contain added hormones. Bioaccumulation of toxic substances over time is responsible for many physical and mental disorders, especially ones that are on a rapid rise such as asthma, cancer, and mental illness. It's no surprise that as a result, detoxification therapies are increasing in importance and popularity. More than a Food Chain: As you can see in this illustration, our world is interconnected far beyond simple food-chain dynamics."

"The affluent women, they said, had been more likely to take the prescription hormones. For decades, doctors had been unwittingly fueling the rate of breast cancer in the United States by writing prescriptions for the estrogen pills. It can take a hundred years before all the risks of a medicine are known, explained Dr. Janet Woodcock, a top FDA official, in a presentation to a panel of experts who were reviewing the safety of the nation's drug supply in 2005. And in a stunning admission, Dr."

"I asked Suzuki if he thought Kamada's vitality came from hormones or something else. "I think the fact that she still retains her duties as a noro is very important," he replied. "Roles are very important here in Okinawa. They call it ikigai—the reason for waking up in the morning. A sudden loss of a person's traditional role can have a measurable effect on mortality. We see this especially among teachers and policemen who die very soon after they quit working. Police and teachers have very clear senses of purpose and relatively high status."

"To provide individual amino acids that can be used elsewhere in the body for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, hormones, glucose, and proteins Clearly, if protein degradation rates are greater than the rates of synthesis, there will be a reduction of protein content; conversely, muscle protein content can only increase if the rate of synthesis exceeds that of degradation.

"It should be noted that in 2002, Doll finally admitted that most cancers, other than those related to smoking and hormones, "are induced by exposure to chemicals, often environmental". The worldwide cancer establishments share major responsibility for losing the winnable war against cancer, a fact that is all the more serious in view of the strong influence that U.S. cancer establishment policies continue to exert on other nations worldwide."

"Equally as important, if not more so, are all of the steroid hormones (better known as the sex hormones), which are made out of cholesterol. (See Figure 2.9) When blood cholesterol has been measured in people who are under stress, the levels of cholesterol are always increased, and this is because the adrenal hormones used by the body for response to stress are made from cholesterol.

"I think it's hormones," the woman muttered. Ms. Hillmer thanked the women for listening, urging each one to pick up one of the "sleep kits" she had placed in a stack by Ms. Ambien on their way out. The sleep kit was a black plastic case etched with the pink and aqua Ambien logo. Inside were a deck of playing cards embossed with the Ambien brand name, a compact disc with soothing music, and a card to send away for a free Ambien sleep mask, as long as one also provided the drug company with her name, address, and a description of her personal sleep problems."

"There are no lifestyle changes, surgical procedures, vitamins, antioxidants, hormones, or techniques of genetic engineering available today that have been demonstrated to influence the processes of aging." The brutal reality about aging is that it has only an accelerator pedal. We have yet to discover whether a brake exists for people. The name of the game is to keep from pushing the accelerator pedal so hard that we speed up the aging process. The average American, however, by living a fast and furious lifestyle, pushes that accelerator too hard and too much."

"Through the detox program, you will be shrinking those fat cells, releasing stored toxins, and helping your body achieve not only an ideal weight but also an ideal balance of hormones and other metabolism-regulating substances that will further support vibrant health, energy, and longevity. SILENT KILLERS To get a quick understanding of the scope environmental toxicity has on widespread sickness and disease, a glimpse at the World Health Organization's numbers from its gathering of information and studies is shocking."
