HRT or bio identical hormones


(fiona mcclean) #1

Hi can anyone help me?

I recently had a concern about cancer as a cyst was found on my breast. I am OK but am currently on HRT and am aware of the dangers of breast cancer so I wish to find a practitioner in France who can advise and take me on as a client for the treatment for the menopause using bio identical hormones.

There is a Clinique in England but it is too expensive for me to travel there every time I need to see the specialist.

I live in the Drome. Can travel much further if necessary. Paris would be fine for example.I have googled the subject but the one person in France I discovered cannot take more clients.

Thank you in advance

Fiona

Did you ever find a solution?

Not yet. My doctor and two gynocologists aren’t interested. There is a
private clinic which specializes in bio identical hormones but isn’t taking
on more clients. A friends doctor recommended to her, Livial which is a HRT
treatment less risky regarding breast cancer. I might try coming off
Femsept after my five year period is up and hope my hair doesn’t fall out!

Hi Fiona, been there done thT, without HRT, sadly the menaopauxe is a curse to be tolerated but I took Starflower Capsules/tabs which at the time perhaps 15 yrs ago I bought from H@B although living in UK, although they send to France. I also took Devils Claŵ with it and the 2 together worked for me.

I would also say though that you ought to check out ingredients of both,plus if you take other prescribed meds. Prescribed med ingredients can be checked on drugs.com .co.u.k or .fr …Wikipedia is a good site to research also for natural ingredients.

Current thinking now, as seen on U.K. TV is that HRT is not good and may even cause Breast Cancer. If the lumps are Cysts, they may just need aspirating by your Dr. I had one done when living in the .Hérault with no problems at all. Cyst never reappeared. No I’m not medically qualified, but these days I prefer the “natural route” rather than chemical one and have done a lot of research on my own health because needs must! Health Research has become my current hobby, especially if I see similiar symptoms from others on other forums, it’s fascinating, educational and beats listening to Brexit on TV :slight_smile:
Hope above helps.
Oops nearly forgot to say, if there is not a Bio shop in your area, speak to your Pharmacist, I check things out with him for myself, showing him my extensive blood test results. He put me on Arkopharma products when I wanted to do a detox. Just add .com to their name also to see which products they make, using natural Herbal/plant ingredients. You may find something there for the Menopause, I don’t know.

Thanks so much Shirley
For the very helpful info. I am waiting nervously for some test results
and have also decided to come off HRT slowly. Will check out my local Bio
shop for those ingrediants.
