SUGGEST HERBS THAT WON'T CAUSE BREAST CANCER

Posted by Jackie

Can you suggest herbs that won't cause breast cancer thats good 4 a woman whose had her uterus, ovaries and appendix removed? Yrs. of birth control pills & after the hyst. yrs of estrogen, caused gallstones and calcium deposits in my breast. I'm 49 now and have lost a lot of hair (scalp and pubic)over the past 16 yrs and sometimes deal with my scalp burning. I think its all hormonal. Got any remedies that would balance my hormones, revive my metabolism and grow my hair back? I have other problems I feel due to the hyst but the above problems are the ones that bother me the most.

The issue of calcium deposits can easily be resolved by avoiding calcium supplements, and take more magnesium, preferably magnesium gluconate, magnesium chloride, magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate. A powder form without fillers is best. Don't use tablets since they are poorly absorbed, and if you can't get powdered form get the capsule kind.

Licorice extract is estrogen like in hormone, provided you take this along with some potassium bicarbonate, or potassium citrate, to prevent sodium retention. Only 1/2 or 1 teaspoon per day should be sufficient.

To balance your hormones, try adding a pinch or two of borax to one liter of water. This will help maintain magnesium/calcium in balance. Take lots of vitamin D3 of about 10,000 IU, as this is a form of steroidal hormone and will really be helpful. Take at least 2000 I.U. vitamin E as it is very helpful with hormone conditions. For body to operate optimally on hormones/steroid/fats, take granulated lecithin of about 1000 mg per day along with food.

Hair loss can be remedied by taking sodium ascorbate, 500 mg. per day.

Finally, you need to stabilize your system by stabiling your pH, take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and citric acid everyday. This last formula should help clear calcium from your body. To give more energy just add malic acid 500 mg. or take about one or two tablespoon of malic acid.

Completely avoid canola oil, margarine, cookies, pastries and all those hydrogenated vegetable oils. These tend to disrupt the hormone system. Use only real unprocessed coconut oil or olive oil.

Take evening primrose oil in equal portions with fish oil. Primrose is omega 6, fish oil is omega 3, it must be taken in equal portions and the body should balance it itself of your steroid hormones.

If you are losing hair, take a good dose of gingseng or ginseng extract. This will help with certain hormonal conditions, which necessary for your condition relating to the loss of hair.

This just covers most of it. Finally, look up "Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation" and do some exercises to help balance the chakras, and hence the hormones.

Hormonal issue is a serious one and therefore, you should look into taking some melatonin every night. This will help the body rest and allow recovery. You might consider taking some now and then natural thymulin extract (e.g. Armour brain).

Then finally consider adding cilantro to your soups to help chelate out heavy metals to normalize the body and help reactivate suppressed glandular issues.

Eat kelp or seaweed fairly often as this is the only bioavailable form of iodine to help rejuvenate some thymus/parathyroid/throidal gland also.

It is difficult to cover every aspect, but you may need to stay away from milk, white flour and sugar. If you manage to follow all this, you should notice a clear improvement in the conditions within one week.

Sorry that I can't cover more of this, since hormone conditions are quite difficult to treat and needs a large assortment of supplements to help, especially when the organs were removed.

I don't understand why you didn't recommend progesterone cream to the women that wrote in about hormone problems. That would have been the best answer. Your other suggestions, although very healthy for the body, will not increase progesterone and balance out the estrogen dominance, only progesterone cream will do that.

I will usually recommend natural therapy because I have much less complaints of use than to recommend hormones directly. One of my friends recently died of cancer as a result of long term progesterone use and another one I found that lupus was linked to hormone use.

Estrogen dominance can easily be tamed by just getting certain supplements which will reduce estrogen dominance just as effectively through the use of indole-3-carbinol, or even gingseng just as effectively. I personally will support indole 3 carbinol (found in brocolli) to reduce estrogen dominance. Even cabbage and brocolli has been shown to effectively reduce estrogen dominance or reduce pseudoestrogens so common in our environment today.

Most doctors would recommend progesterone and hormone replacement anyway. So it is not my intention to compete or recommend the same regimen as what doctors recommend. Doctors have done the job and I am here to support those where conventional medicine fails. If it works, don't fix it. For me, I have found that natural therapies are often as effective, if not more effective than the direct use of any hormone therapy. In fact I also found the use of lavender oil, vinegar, fulvic acid, or even sodium thiosulfate (dechlorinator) were also great for skin problems also. I will only recommend any hormone therapy as a last resort. This is the same thing with antibiotics. Too much is not healthy and it has often been linked to cancer so often that I really have no effective means of controlling this problem. So if you believe progesterone works for you fine, for me I would keep my options on hormones a last option when I have exhausted all possibilites. The issue for my not using hormone use is cancer and the use of natural therapies through the use of herbals and supplements I believe are safer. Of course, I could be wrong and this is where you have to decide yourself.

Was the progesterone cream she was using a bioidentical hormone? Or was it synthetic - the kind that the allopathic drs give? There is supposedly a world of difference with synthetic progesterone causing cancer while the bioidentical is useful for opposing excess estrogen, thereby lowering cancer risk.
