Surprisingly, there is one more piece of bad news from hormone treatments for menopause this week. A study found that, women taking hormones for menopause treatment had smaller frontal brain lobes than women who did not use hormones. The shrinkage in both the hippocampus and frontal lobe regions of the brain will damage both memory and cognitive functions.
Bear in mind that estrogen does many things in the body. Medical science only knows that estrogen reduces hot flashes, but does not know what else estrogen can do inside the body. In fact, there are many ways to reduce hot flashes. The Chinese herbal formula Menopause BalanZ can reduce hot flashes in one month without even a breast swelling side effect.
Do you know how many functions estrogen has inside the body? Estrogen increases cell proliferation after fertilization, improve neural connections in the brain and control insulin levels. Estrogen receptors are found everywhere in the body from ovary to the pituitary, in the hypothalamus, in various parts of the brain, in the prostrate gland, testes, liver and kidney.
When you take hormones for menopause treatment, you add external hormones to the body every day. There are many estrogen receptors inside the body. Estrogen binds to all estrogen receptors sooner or later.
There are many estrogen receptors in the breast tissue, in the uterus and in various parts of the brain. Many years ago, it was found that over-stimulation by estrogen will cause breast cancer and uterine cancer. Now it is found that estrogen damages the brain. In the future, more side effects will be discovered, simply because estrogen is not for menopause only. Estrogen has many other biological functions.
