American women are experiencing an epidemic of hormone related health issues. As more and more baby boomers hit menopause, they are demanding answers that don't hurt their bodies or accelerate their aging. But don't wait until menopause to look at how hormonal imbalances affect your health. More than 50 percent of women over age 35 are deficient in progesterone and many more - from puberty to post- menopause, are suffering with the cyclical discomforts and toxic effects of excess estrogen.
It is much more than just PMS, bloating, hot flashes and night sweats. In his new book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer", John R. Lee, MD carefully and clearly documents the relationship between hormone imbalances and breast cancer. On page 124 he writes:
"The bottom line is that estrogen is intricately woven into the initiation and promotion of breast cancer, right down to the level of your genes, your DNA, and your immune system. Exposure to excess estrogen, both from imbalances within the body and from sources outside the body (such as pesticides), increases the chances that things can go wrong at the cell level - which in turn damages the DNA, which in turn disrupts communication within the cell. You can protect yourself from these dangerous changes in your cells by avoiding excess estrogens, using supplemental progesterone if your levels are low, keeping your DHEA levels normal, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes adequate rest, relaxation, exercise, stress management, and a wholesome diet that provides the building blocks of the protective systems that neutralize and safely excrete toxins from the body."
