Well, it sure has been awhile so I thought I would do some catching up and talk about an interesting product I heard about this morning.
I was watching a news show and they had Dr. Christine Horne on talking about a new supplement for breast cancer prevention. Dr. Horne is the surgeon who headed up a national campaign in the 90s that pushed legislation through Congress requiring insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction after mastectomy. So I searched for a news story and found this.
The supplement is called Protective Breast Formula and combines seven natural ingredients in clinically-studied doses: Vitamin D, Calcium D-Gluconate, Green Tea Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Indolplex (DIM), Maitake D-fraction, and Turmeric. They have established clinical efficacy for promoting breast health. You can read all about it and check out the ingredients here.
As for other progress in my quest toward figuring out how to live well with menopause, I don't have too much to report. I completely quit the natural progesterone. Could be a mistake but I didn't intend to do it forever anyway and I'm not having hot flashes. I'm still taking the Maca which does seem to help a little, and of course still on the vaginal estriol for dryness.
I had my yearly mammogram, ultrasound, and pap smear. Everything was fine and that was certainly a relief after what happened last year.
