Is osteoporosis an estrogen deficiency disease? Can it be cured with estrogen replacement therapy? The following results of a very large study has shown otherwise.
The study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1995 analyzed the risk fractures in white women. It followed over 9,500 women for eight years. Findings showed no benefit in estrogen supplementation in women over the age of sixty-five.
Dr. John Lee, author of “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause,” pointed out that the most important factor in osteoporosis is the lack of progesterone hormone, which drops much more at menopause than estrogen does. Dr. Lee who has an extensive clinical experience , says that with diet and lifestyle and the use of a natural progesterone cream, it will actively increase bone mass density and can reverse osteoporosis. After treating hundreds of patients with osteoporosis over a period of fifteen years, Dr. Lee found that those women with the lowest bone densities experienced the greatest relative improvement, and those who had good bone density to begin with , maintained their strong bones.
