Estrogen Replacement And Alzheimer's

..."it bears repeating now — a 38% increased risk in anything as serious as dementia cannot be under-reported, in my opinion."..

Of course the immune enhancing, not toxic and. not to mention, low cost alternatives such as Vitamin C (see below) are just non issues. They will do anything for profits, at the expense of our health, while fooling us to think that they are doing it for our health....

Vitamin C & Menopause

One wonders how long they can continue to pull the wool over our eyes?

The crazy truth behind estrogen replacement

A lot of mainstream doctors have sold a lot of women on prescription-drug estrogen replacement therapy for the "relief" of menopause symptoms. It's a racket that pays the drug biz and the individual practitioner big bucks for treating something that's perfectly normal (and perfectly manageable, if you use a few safe, natural techniques).

But there's another reason why a lot of MDs are convincing women to look past the increased risk of several types of female- specific cancers (breast and uterine, most notably) and the heightened likelihood of strokes and heart attacks that accompany modern drug-based hormone replacement therapy…

Pharmaceuticals makers have successfully positioned (a term prevalent in advertising, how fitting) estrogen therapy as a preventive for dementia in women over 65.

This, despite the fact that there's actually proof to the contrary!

A few weeks ago, the Journal of the American Medical Association published the results of a government-sponsored study called the Women's Health Initiative. The research focused on 3,000 women aged 65 to 79, and guess what they discovered? Contrary to drug company claims and mainstream doctors' beliefs, the research showed a whopping 38% greater risk of developing Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia among women taking supplemental estrogen than among those coping with menopause the natural way.

I've touched on this subject in prior Daily Doses and in my newsletter, but it bears repeating now — a 38% increased risk in anything as serious as dementia cannot be under-reported, in my opinion.

There is a new, positive development in this saga, though. Apparently, the message is trickling out about the risks of modern estrogen replacement therapy: Worldwide sales of one leading marketer's supplemental estrogen drugs fell by nearly 40% between 2001 and 2002.

Not milking the myths — or buying into them,

Readers' Comments

as estrogen rises in the body, so does the level of copper.
Copper toxicity causes many incredibly awful psychological symptoms. (See "Copper Toxicity Syndrome")
Headaches, adrenal dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, insomnia, hallucinations, disturbed sense of time and space, disturbed sense of self-perception, appetite disorders,obsessive-compuslive behaviour, depression, suicidal behaviour, just to name a few.
We need copper, as it is a nutritional mineral, but we don't need it in large amounts. Mess with the body (biochemistry), destroy the mind.
Mercury poisoning destroys our body's ability to detox itself, hence all the autism, depression, suicides.
When will it stop?
When Eli Lilly has enough money???
