Bio-Identical Hormones:

When getting hormones from a pharmacy, be aware that there are natural and synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones are only part of the molecular structure, of natural hormones and will not improve hormone deficiency. In fact they will worsen the condition for which you took them, in the first place.

My recommendation is to take bio-identical hormones of the sublingual type. I have found the absorption to be about 10 times better with sublingual hormones, than with transdermal hormones. The sublingual form I use is called a Troche (pronounced trokey).

Bio-identical hormones, consist of the exact molecular structure of the hormones that are made in your body. They are made from plant sources and are exactly the same, as nature made them in us.

When writing prescriptions, doctors should keep in mind that bio-identical hormones will have no negative effect on the body, if they are prescribed in quantities that are consistent, with levels needed for optimal health. On the other hand, synthetic hormones made by major pharmaceutical companies, are mostly prescribed by allopathic doctors and can have major negative effects on every part of the body.

30 Points Of Interest For Men With Prostate Cancer

Transcription by Jerry Sloane from articles published by Dr. John R. Lee M.D. As a noted expert on hormones, Dr. Lee was primarily known for his work, with women's hormones. Listed below are some of his statements (which have been shortened) for this publication and are attributed to Dr. Lee.


Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)

SHBG as measured in blood (the same as other sex hormones) are mostly protein bound and can do no work in the body. They are in effect used hormones.

Whether measured in saliva or blood the following would be true.

Aromatase Inhibitors

Aromatase is an enzyme required for the conversion of androgens to estrogens. Aromatase inhibitors thus decrease the concentrations of estrogens in the body and are effective against tumors that depend on estrogen for growth.

Aromatase, an enzyme found in the liver, in responsible for the conversion of the androgens ANDROSTENEDIONE and TESTOSTERONE into the estrogens ESTRONE and ESTRADIOL. By inhibiting aromatase the body produces less estrogen and maintains a higher testosterone state.

In men, aromatase activity increases with age, converting what little testosterone is left into estrogen. It is perhaps this event that is most responsible for the many symptoms of male menopause, and possibly even enlarged prostates and prostate cancer.

The long held theory of prostate cancer, that testosterone is bad stuff, and even worse when its converted to dihydrotestosterone, is gradually falling into disfavor.

A more prevalent current opinion is that prostate cancer has more to do with estrogen than with dihydrotestosterone. It appears that many men, as they get older, convert too much testosterone to estrogen and that this excessive estrogen is the cause of prostate enlargement or prostate cancer.

When supplementing with Testosterone, Aromatase Inhibitors will prevent some Testosterone from converting to Estradiol. The following herbs and nutrients will help prevent this conversion.

5 Alpha Reductase Inhibitors

High levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is thought to cause BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) in men as well as loss of hair. The loss of hair is unrelated to BPH, as the genetic mechanism is different. The following herbs may be used to prevent 5 Alpha Reductase from causing excess Testosterone from converting to DHT

Some of the following also have a secondary effect, which is to prevent hair loss in those that are genetically susceptible.
