Avatar n tn Whether the estrogen is natural or chemical it is still estrogen. By eating large quantities of soy, you are potentially providing estrogen to your breast tissue.
Avatar f tn Anyway, she says I shouldn't take the sublingual, bioidentical progesterone he prescribed nor should I continue to eat protein bars and other sources of soy protein which provide a natural bioidentical estrogen. She said there is an increased cancer risk associated with both progesterone and estrogen supplementation. Since I have high risk HPV (cancer causing) I should not take these supplements.
Avatar f tn my doc wanted to put me on bc for a month to build up my lining but I can't take birth control (the high estrogen makes me grow precancerous lumps in my breasts). So she put me on flaxseed oil, she said it is a plant estrogen which might help with my lining. Has anyone done this?? Did it work?
Avatar n tn It's supposed to work in the same way. 3. Can someone in my case take natural/plant estrogen supplements without worry about reoccurence. Some things that I have read say that these supplements provide estrogen that work in a different way and will not "feed" estrogen sensitive cancer.

Avatar n tn I would go back and tell her that if she cant give you .25mcg daily then you will find another Doctor. Natural therapies are all good and well but dont work the same way as a T4 med does. They dont absorb into the blood stream as they should and end up in the gut. Although there are some here who disagree with this. I am open to any critisism in regards to natural iodine. Although personally I wouldnt touch it as you could very well go Hyper on it.
Avatar f tn I am on daily medications for underactive thyroid (Eltroxin), high blood pressure (Lisinopryl), and estrogen (Premarin). I have tried numerous meds for my FMS but nothing has helped so far. I am taking the following vitamins daily: A Multi-vitamin, 1000 mg.Vitamin C, 1000 IU Vitamin D, Calcium Citrate consisting of 200 IU of calcium and 315mg. of Vitamin D, and 1000mg.Omega 3 Fish Oil, 2-3 times/day, and 1000mg Echinacea. Is there a problem taking these daily and should I take anything else?
Avatar n tn I have read this, been told by my oncologist, surgeon and a hollistic physician. Soy is a natural estrogen. Some say it is a good estrogen but all in all it is still an estrogen. If you are going to take it then use the pure forms of soy such as miso, tempeh, natto or sprouted. My cancer was a high estrogen receptor therefore, I try to avoid it. Just wanted you all to know.
535822 tn?1443980380 (NaturalNews) A new study published this month finds that the hormonally active form of vitamin D, Calcitriol 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3), inhibits the growth of many kinds of cancerous cells, including breast cancer, indicating that vitamin D3 can be useful in treating and even preventing a variety of cancers.
Avatar n tn I think that most of us will say that the hot flushes and the weight gain are pretty annoying to say the least. Estrogen can cause weight gain but, can help with the hot flushes some. Natural sources of Estrogen (like soy) are less potent but, don't necessarily cause the weight gain. So, perhaps, you may want to try to seek out some help from the healthfood store where they often have some great advice and preparations/supplements that can help with the hot flushes?
Avatar f tn I have also read soy has phytoestrogen (estrogenic activity) so it will add to the already elevated levels of estrogen in the body of a PCOS sufferer, so it should be avoided. On the contrary some articles say that soy is good as it has estrogenic activity and would block the excess estrogen receptors in PCOS). Please advice. 2. Can I consume milk and egg white?

Avatar f tn Sweet potatoes, and Soy are sources of natural estrogen. There is alot going on about fake estrogens in register receipts... and pesicides on non organic vegetables that imitate estrogens. Peppers Tomatos, blueberries and strawberries, are some that I remember. I am not sure that is the best route, though. Black Cohosh I have heard is good for menopause. I am sure you could google it, since you seem to have internet access.

Avatar f tn It has natural estrogen like effects. You might try natural sources of omega fatty acids for mood, like freshwater fish, such as salmon and tuna, walnuts and macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed. You might try flaxseed or if you aren't troubled by the fishy aftertaste, enteric coated fish oil capsules. Sam-E by naturemade is a helpful mood booster. Those hormonal changes can make it easy to put on the pounds.
Avatar n tn If your mother is willing, she may want to go to a competent psychiatrist to be evaluated to see what is wrong. Natural things that may or may not help your mother- soy milk (natural estrogen type action), sam-E (naturemade brand), which a psychiatrist told me is a natural seratonin pill, walnuts, macadamia nuts, flaxseed oil or fish oil capsules, and freshwater fish, such as salmon (sources of omega fatty acids which can help mood. I hope your mom gets the help she needs soon.
Avatar f tn Balance Estrogen Levels (Women) - Excess estrogen slows down the thyroid gland. This means eliminating birth control medications, increasing the fiber in the diet, and avoiding all non-organic meats. Growth hormones in meats lead to imbalanced hormones. Reduce dairy intake, because milk often contains lots of estrogen. Exercise - Find a physical activity that is fun, and do it often. We believe that exercise could half the cure time in some cases, and curing is not possible without it.

Avatar m tn High fructose corn syrup needs more energy for the gut to absorb it, that leads to the possibility that you will have gut leakage and inflammation.

Avatar n tn Hi there, thanks for the reply. That's too funny, I saw that article somewhere during my search and I liked it the best also. It was one of the places I saw that the combipatch was not bioidentical. Then when I went back to look for it again, I couldn't find it, and you found it for me!!! This is what happened, when he said I needed progest. he said there was a patch for it in combo with the est. but... it was only available in .
Avatar n tn I am petrified to get my hopes up, yet feel so very pg. My progesterone is excellent, estrogen is excellent and I am weepy, pukey, sleepy and grumpy! I am just wondering why she would be such a damp blanket when the hCG numbers vary so greatly in pg and I am right on with dates compared to what we saw on u/s... am i missing something? We have no baseline beta because I just found out and when testing hCG it was already high and past the expected to double range!
Avatar n tn However, some are trying to out law the procedure. I have read more in relationship to Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT), estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone replacement that is a method used to help treat the symptoms of menopause, and other hormone imbalances. I will not list sites unless government, medical, or reputable thyroid org. So far I have not found one relating to the subject. Not that one is not out there, I just haven't come across it (them) as yet.
