Which hormones to take?

by Terr

I have been reading for some time now about natural hormone replacement therapy and have tried to find a doctor who truely understands bioidentical hormones and takes my insurance. I found two so far but they don't seem to understand much about it. They totally ignore progesterone completely. Going through menopause I needed something so I decided to go with my doctor of 4 years now who's son has convinced her to use the pellet system which insurance will not cover. Now I am on testosterone and estrogen pellets. I am wondering if I can use progesterone cream along with it. I do like the idea of having blood work done often to keep a check on the hormone levels. When I asked my doctor about progesterone and told her about the osteoblast theory she said that they (?) have been getting great success with testosterone and Boniva. I don't want to take Boniva or anything like it. That is why I need to know if using progesterone cream with the pellets would be okay.

Which hormones to take
by: Wray

Hi Terr. I'm very against both oestroen and testosterone for women. Progesterone is the precursor to both, so if the body needs either of them it can make it from the supplemental progesterone.

Saliva tests are more accurate than blood tests, but I far prefer to go by symptoms. I'm glad you don't want to take the Boniva. If you're worried about the state of your bones, then have a hair analysis done. Bones are extremely complex things and are not made of drugs (!) but a multitude of minerals and proteins.

Research conducted this year has found that proteoglycans (PGs) and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), (forms of sugar) appear to play a role which is as important as proteins in controlling bone mineralization.

Hi Rachel. Progesterone can't help Type 1 or 2 diabetes. But both have been reversed before. Please contact Health Excel here. Or Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.

Please consider having a vitamin D test done. There is strong evidence a lack of this leads to diabetes. The test should only be done for 25-hydroxyvitamin D, also called calcidiol. For more information please see this website.

Take care, Wray
