A “Drug Mugger” is a prescription or over-the-counter drug that contributes to depleting your body of vital nutrients and minerals.

With up to 80 percent of the population being deficient of Vitamin D, and most of them not getting an adequate supply of Vitamin C, you need to take precautions not to deplete your body any further!  If you are taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs, they could be contributing to Vitamin D and C deficiencies!

  • Estrogen-containing drugs (hormone replacement therapy and birth-control)

Part 3: How the Recent “Devastating News” About Angelina Jolie is Exposing Another “Silent Killer”

Part 3:  How the Recent “Devastating News” About Angelina Jolie is Exposing Another “Silent Killer”

 That’s right, the recent devastating news on Angelina Jolie is shedding light on a seldom discussed but “silent killer” of women:

  • It is the 7th most common cancer for women in the world.
  • It generally attacks women between ages 50 and 59.
  • In 75% of the cases it is advanced beyond the early stages.

What is this less commonly discussed cancer killer?  Ovarian cancer has a lifetime risk of 1.6% of women with no family history.  This increases to 5% in women with a family history.  In women without an increased risk by way of family history, testing will only predict its occurrence 3% of the time! 

So what does Angelina Jolie’s breast cancer risk have anything to do with ovarian cancer?  There is a known increase in incidence of ovarian cancer in women who develop breast cancer.  In women who test positive for the BRCA gene mutation (the most commonly discussed  breast cancer family gene), the risk can be as high as 46% lifetime probability of ovarian cancer.  And what this means for someone like Angelina Jolie is not only is she at an increased risk of developing breast cancer had she not undergone surgery, but she also carries an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, too.

Beyond the scope of our discussion are the treatment controversies in women before menopause (around age 50) as well as after menopause concerning blocking natural hormone effects to decrease breast cancer development.  But what is clear is in this small group of women who have an increased risk for either breast and/or ovarian cancer, they must undergo close surveillance and sometimes very aggressive treatment.

But what about most women who do not have a family gene for breast or ovarian cancer?  The worry running through most women’s minds is what should they do.  One of the biggest problems identified in the last article was that women, even at lower risk for developing breast cancer, are not compulsive enough with starting base line mammograms at age 40 and following through with annual screening that has been shown to catch breast cancer earlier than without screening alone.  The real question that many may be asking is what about ovarian cancer itself.  This is very difficult, because in many ways, like PSA testing in men for prostate cancer, the current basic tumor marker testing combined with ultrasound, is better at telling women that they don’t have it (which is most women) than predicting that they will get it.  On the other side of the argument is that many unnecessary surgeries and interventions for removing ovaries and blocking estrogen receptors, would not only diminish the quality of a woman’s life, but may also have its own set of risks including osteoporosis and earlier heart disease.

So, what resources do women have when they are not at increased risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer and yet still want to be sure that the type of hormonal therapy that they’re receiving is actually more beneficial than risky.  One of the main reasons that individual hormonal expert consultation is required before the initiation of any hormonal regiment, including that of replacing female hormones, is seeing what would help a woman and not put her at increased risk.  In fact, I even see women who have been treated for breast cancer or are at increased risk, and have custom tailored the therapy to reduce risk and increase benefit.   One of the benefits of concierge medicine is that you can deliver a “personalized approach” and ultimately create a quality of life for women so that they can enjoy their daily relationships, activities and optimism toward a healthier lifestyle.

Finally, Some STRAIGHT TALK About Why Americans Are Living Longer But Not Healthier Lives

old person with back pain

Recent studies have shown that Americans are living longer but not healthier.  In particular, Americans are now living 78 years on average, but spending more years with disability.  This study compared health, life expectancy and years with disability from 1990 statistics and 2010 statistics.

Where have there been gains?  The United States has made important headway against problems such as strokes, cancers (including colon and breast), but even as Americans are living longer, they are spending more time with disability.  The study that was conducted in 2010 showed 10.1 years of disability.

What is the “real reason” for these alarming statistics?  Leading contributors to disability include low back pain and other disorders that affect the muscles, nerves and joints.  Other contributing factors include depression and anxiety.

And so what do Body Hormone Balance members who are familiar with their hormone blueprint need to know about this study?  As a basis for combating disability, which causes poor quality lifestyle even for middle aged clients, a review of the basics is very critical.  First, attention to proper weight management and hormonal balance is the foundation.  Think about it this way.  Think about all the things that wear your body out sooner because of extra fat and lack of hormonal protection.  This is the basis of your blueprint – hormonal management.  Next, balancing of brain chemicals and nutrition complete the triangle for your blueprint.  In other words, having perfect balance between your brain chemical function, your nutritional status and hormonal balance form the triangle for the Body Hormone Balance programs.

So what if I’m doing reasonably with weight management and hormonal health, what else can be done to help me avoid disability?  Well first of all, the question you are asking is really focusing on what is happening to health and wellness in the 21st century.   In Body Hormone Balance Revolution, hormoneblueprint.com, be sure to read every word of Chapter 5 (Secret of Success), so that you are way ahead of the game.  Another resource would be to fill out your blueprint questionnaire at your next visit and ask what else can be done to keep your mind, nutrition and hormonal balance optimized, so that you avoid the disability that is so prevalent in the United States.

Dr. Moricz: “I Plead Guilty”

Jack_Dianne_video-15

These were the words that flew from Dr. Moricz’s mouth during a recent radio interview.  It appeared that the interviewer voiced skepticism about the flood of success story testimonials of Dr. Moricz’s clients.  She even went so far as to accuse Dr. Moricz: “You are not just a doctor, YOU ARE in the youthful sexuality business!”  To which Dr. Moricz submitted, “you win… I guess you are right.”

Some of you may be chuckling because members of the Body Hormone Balance family have not been shy about their success stories and we all know it very well.  See, this interviewer was expecting to hear the SAME OLD STUFF:

“I lost _____ pounds.”

“I sleep restfully through the night.”

“I have so much energy that I look forward to my evenings.”

But instead the interviewer was SHOCKED AND AMAZED at the real stories that Dr. Moricz’s clients disclosed about their newly re-discovered sexuality.

See, most doctors in Texarkana don’t believe it either, how could a doctor dedicated to literally transforming the sex lives of everyday people overnight whose experience with doctors used to consist of prescriptions, more tests and office visits UNTIL NOW…  If we have caught your attention, then you are MORE SAVVY than most.  And being more SAVVY than most has its privileges.

So naturally, you want to benefit from this very magical process and so you will by clicking here to discover how Jack and Diane rediscover the fountain of youth.
