Hormone Replacement Safe for Women

By Monday, 22 January 2018 04:17 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Many women experiencing menopause consider taking hormone replacement therapy, but are often told by their doctors that the risk of breast cancer or blood clots is too high

However, a study from the “British Medical Journal” supports the safe use of these hormones in postmenopausal women.

The researchers examined 1,006 women, and found that early hormone replacement cut heart attack rates in half and slightly reduced breast cancer risk. In addition, fewer had a stroke, there was no increase in blood clots, and fewer developed heart failure than women without hormone replacement.

What is more incredible is that this study used pharmaceutical hormones (the study was funded by the makers of female hormones).

I would suspect that natural hormone replacement, which is much safer, would have even better results.

Another study reported in the “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism” found that women having the worst hot flashes also had much higher indications of inflammation in their blood vessels.

This would explain the observation of rapid atherosclerosis appearing after menopause.

They measured P-selectin and CD40 to determine inflammation within blood vessels. These are better measures than C-reactive protein. The estrogen replacement cools off this inflammation.
