there has been so much debate about this--now it seems to be conclusive with the latest research you have presented. As this was something of concern for me and I don't often have time to search for studies, I appreciate the info.

Bobby I wish I could remember the name of the latest one. I know that black cohash has been linked to breast cancer.

This one is being bundled, I think with calcium, and advertised on TV. It would be a bad thing for women at risk of breast cancer (and every female is, realistically).

Of course because HRT is synthetic-based and those don't naturally coagulate well with our personal dna-designed hormone specific panel. The dangers in hormone replacement therapies certainly outweigh the benefits. I steered clear from those even when my ovarian cyst burst, no hysterectomy, no HRT --I went all natural and decreased the size of cyst, gained a little weight back, and threw off the onset of pre-menopause ...

But what I'm saying is that even the "natural" hormone supplements increase the risk of breast cancer. I think it's important that women know that.

Oh of course Gail, the natural ones can also since the synthetic are derived from the original; however, that is where keeping a mood, food and good vibe journal might be the key to increasing estrogen when necessay while decreasing testosterone effectively all because I can metabolize a yam better then the next woman or she can metabolize dong quai better than me. It takes a little of one or more to have the appropriate individual 'hormonecocktail' to do what a synthetic might miss, mask or destroy. Thank you for your input . . .

But that cancer has been linked to a specific gene pool and blood type. Not all four blood types will get that particular type of cancer. You have heard of the human papilloma virus right? See how any different kinds of cancers that natural thing in our bodies when 'nurtured' so to speak ...

No, Enlightened. Any woman who has had hormone sensitive cancer must avoid ALL attepmts to increase estrogen. And in fact that is NOT the cancer that has been linked to genes. You have a lot of inaccurate information.

Please women, double-check what you read on line with your oncologist. The life you save may be your own.

Gail, I am writing from personal experience with a type of estrogen dominance problem that causes ovarian cysts and benign uterine fibroids; not related to breats cancer. I am just stating my own personal facts and in no way expect, nor suggest, nor even affirm that black cohosh is safe for ANY type of cancer removal.

I had a non-cancerous benign ovarian cyst that was largely in fault of synthetic hormones used in a low-dose birth control pill. The surge of estrogen could have done damage in a number of ways, all tissues can be affected or not. I AGREE all women who have been diagnosed with hormone sensitive cancer (which as a clinical therapist in psychology that term evades me so I will check with a gynecologist); anyway to stay away from any natural or synthetic chemical that will manifest into greater production of estrogen. I do not have alot of inaccurate information, just a tad bit here that was not properly addressed.

I appreciate you pointing that out to me and yes ladies do discuss all and every option with your gynecologist but remember YOU know your body best, as did I, so I recommend listening to it before anything else !

I would like to make it clear here that at fifteen, my reproductive system was toxic free of anything a synthetic lab could produce and have a gynecologist introduce to my system. But irregularity and heavy hemmorhagging made it clear my cycles needed help so in steps a gynecologist who specialized in endocrine health. the system, reproductively-speaking was tampered with and the end result was two miscarriages, possible infertility and serious endometriosis that formed a cyst on top of my left ovary. It resided there for tears before making itself painfully evident.

It burst 2006 and I don't recommend letting it get that far. In fact I am just telling my story in the hopes of awakening ladies to use common sense--abstinence not pills and diet with food not powders and hormone therapies !

Yes. Ovarian cysts have been around far longer than birth control pills. A friend of mine in high school had an ovary the size of a grapefruit. Interestingly, the surgery involved removing a small section of the ovary, which then returned to normal size. Whether it returned to normal function I don't know but I know she had several children. But that could have been accomplished with one egg-producing ovary.

Maybe it is just one of these things that women have to deal with. The fewer meds, the better.

We're talking about a 16 year old in 1961. She wasn't taking anything and was rarely sick, and I really don't think prescription meds had aything to do with it. But she would have had to have much more aggressive surgery had that ovary ruptured.

I do agree the fewer NECESSARY meds, the better. Sometimes they are necessary.
