Osteoporosis is a disorder in which progressive bone mass loss and demineralization increase ones risk of fracture. This condition permits us to observe how prescription progestins and estrogens compare to Bio-identical Progesterone.
The standard medical protocol for osteoporosis is to use estrogen, (commonly synthesized from pregnant mare’s urine), in spite of the fact that the most authoritative medical textbooks do not support it.
The following article illustrates:
Scientific American’s Updated Medicine Text, 1991.
Because estrogen has a rate limiting effect on Osteoclasts, Estrogen Dominance delays the breakdown of bone tissue but does not support bone building (osteoblast function).
Bone is a dynamic tissue that is constantly being reshaped by osteoblasts, which build bone, and osteoclasts, which resorb bone. Consequently, estrogens only slow down bone loss, not promote the formation of new bone tissue.
Maintaining proper levels of natural hormones, giving due attention to dietary choices, dietary calcium, managing stress and regular exercise are proven choices for the informed woman.
