Menopause(A): the standard approach is with hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen with progesterone, which is the Premarin, and the false assumption is that it will reduce your risk of heart disease or that it will reduce your risk of osteoporosis, and eliminate the more common symptoms of menopause, which include night sweats and hot flashes and things of this nature. And certainly estrogen will do that, take care of the hot flashes and the night sweats, but long-term studies show that a woman is not going to retain any bone mass by using estrogen or Premarin with the progesterone and taking a sugar pill, after a 7 to 10 year period. There’s just no difference between the 2 groups of women.
Also, in a very recent study they show if a women’s already had heart disease of one kind or another and she takes hormone replacement therapy, actually increases the risk of heart disease by 50% to take estrogen supplements. There’s been an enormous amount of research in Scandinavia which shows that women who take a supplemental estrogen or estrogen with Premarin, with progesterone, actually increase the risk of breast and uterine cancer by 78%, so to me, there’s no amount of benefit from estrogen supplement to justify that. In fact, your own adrenal glands and liver can manufacture more than enough to avoid the symptoms of night sweats and so forth just simply by taking in the raw materials. 95% of the weight of estrogen is cholesterol, and to convert that cholesterol into estrogen you need all 90 essential nutrients for your adrenal glands and liver to function properly. 2 soft boiled/scrambled/poached in butter, low temperatures eggs every morning for breakfast,not cooked in margarine but instead in butter; not fried. Women who have had menopausal symptoms for 5 years, who have been on estrogen supplements, women who have had PMS for many years, for that matter, will actually get an enormous amount of benefit. And we’ve seen literally thousands of them whose marriages have actually been saved because these premenstrual symptoms and also the post menopausal symptoms will just totally go away.
Menopause(B): PMS, pre-menstrual syndrome. Women have all experienced this, the emotional and physical stuff. The medical treatment of choice for PMS is what we call a hysterical-ectomy, been shortened to hysterectomy. That's a hundred year old treatment, and doctors do about 285,000 unnecessary hysterical-ectomies a year. Even the AMA say they're unnecessary, but they don't take their licenses away. And people keep going to them. Can you imagine the poor woman in her 30's, she says, "Doc, you got to do something. My kids think I'm crazy, my husband's leaving me, I'm going to lose my job, you got to do something." Instead of giving her some calcium, he says “Let’s give you a hysterical-ectomy and everyone will be happy."
The University of California, San Diego, came out 3 years ago now and said, "If you just double the RDA of calcium intake, you get rid of 85% of emotional and physical symptoms of PMS." And when that came out, there were huge lines around the health-food stores.
It helps you make estrogen and men make testosterone. If you don't get enough Boron, women will suffer, miserably, going through menopause. You're going to have all those terrible symptoms listed above. Men that do not get enough Boron, can't make enough testosterone, and won't know whether to lead or follow on the dance floor. You're going to be confused. Fainting, is a sign of Boron deficiency.
