Hormone Replacement - How Come We Need It?

July 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

Many thanks to the late John Lee, M.D., for his research on many of the points communicated here.

Why do our hormones need replacing? Don't our bodies make hormones? And then keep them in balance?

Yes, of course our bodies make our own hormones, and yes, of course, our bodies are designed to keep them in balance.

So again, why would they need replacing?

Apparently one reason is that when our generation was in utero, our mothers consumed food contaminated with the chemical DDT.

Our mothers showed no discernible symptoms, but our forming fetal gonadal cells were injured such that they do not manufacture sufficient sex hormones in adulthood. One manifestation of these low sex hormone levels is an epidemic of depression.

Another indicator is low sperm counts, which are only 50% of what they were a generation ago, and will reduce by 50% again in the next generation.

The solutions for these chemically induced problems, proclaimed in glossy, enticing ads, are supposedly more chemicals; Prozac, Effexor, etc. for depression, Viagra for male potency and various other drugs for ovulation and conception. But infertility rates continue to rise, sperm counts continue to reduce by ½ in each succeeding generation, and our bones continue to crumble.

Since healthy hormonal states are made not from chemicals (nor from synthetic vitamin imitations), but from live, whole foods, it makes perfect sense that the solution to this epidemic lies not in more chemicals, but in nourishing our bodies with what they need for optimum health. In short, whole foods and whole, organic herbs.

Unfortunately, our environment and our bodies are so deficient now that simply consuming a diet of healthy organic foods is no longer enough to bring us back from the brink of inability to produce our own hormones. In my own case, my own bodily resources had become so debilitated that I literally collapsed and had to gradually rebuild. And what brought me back to a vital, strong, hormonally balanced state centered around whole foods and whole, organic herbs. These are the true building blocks every body uses to repair and strengthen.

Happily, a number of health practitioners are now trained in using this approach. They are helping people reverse these debilitated states and the degenerative processes that accompany them.

However, the current political climate is one in which multi-national pharmaceutical corporations hold sway over elected officials and policies that would serve the people they represent Thus the practitioners and the companies who make whole food concentrates and/or organic herbs have to operate under restrictive and sometimes persecutorial governmental policies designed to bring the entire industry to its knees. One such company, for example, operates under a State Supreme Court gag order that they may not, under any circumstances provide any educational materials about their products!

And any physicians who would like to include a concentrated nutritional approach are kept in line by Standard of Practice laws. This meaning they are subject to lawsuits and having their licenses removed if they deviate from the standard approaches used by other doctors in their area.

The solution to this is, of course, an informed and empowered citizenry. We need to educate ourselves independently of the mindset presented by commercial chemical interests. As we arm ourselves with the truth, we are empowered to take charge of our own hormonal health. Strong and balanced, we are positioned to work on healing the dysfunctional laws and governmental policies that promote synthetic chemicals in place of truly nourishing live foods and supplements.
