8 Reasons to Avoid Toxic Hormone Blocking Drugs

Arimidex, Aromasin and Femara are common toxic drugs that are prescribed to post-menopausal women with hormone receptor positive Breast Cancer. Let's take a look at how they work, the serious side effects and healthier and safer alternatives.

First of all, the notion that your hormones are responsible for creating cancer in the body is unfounded. If your hormones caused cancer, then every 20 year old on the planet would be ravaged with cancer.

If there is an imbalance in your hormones or you are not properly metabolizing your hormones, then that may be an issue. You may be exposed to Xeno-estrogens or false estrogens through chemical pesticides and herbicides, skin care products and plastics that cause estrogen overload. Becoming conscious of those factors is great place to start.

The hormone blocking drugs are known as Aromatase inhibitors. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts androgens (steroid hormones that are produced from the adrenals) to estrogen. So the drug basically stops the conversion of certain other hormones in your body to be converted to estrogen.

But let's take a look at the side effects:

  1. Is associated with Vitamin D deficiency
  2. Decreases estrogen for 12 months but not 24 months
  3. Significantly increases levels of IGF-1, Insulin Growth Factor, which increases growth of cancer cells
  4. Causes cognitive deficits (makes your brain sluggish)
  5. Over 71% of women experience musculoskeletal complaints
  6. Contributes to decline of bone mineral density and increased fractures.
  7. Functional impairment of hands because of tendon-synovial changes
  8. Increases in hot flashes

In a nutshell, you will feel achy and sore, you will have brain fog, your hands will get weaker and arthritic, you will develop osteoporosis and break more bones, you will have more hot flashes. ... and you are increasing the growth of cancer cells? Does that sound like a logical trade off?

To truly regain your health, you have to look at the cause of what is allowing the cancer to grow and heal that. If there is a hormone imbalance, there are healthier ways to bring your body to balance.

Steps to bring your hormones to balance naturally:

  1. Run a Saliva Test to determine your Estrogen Quotient
  2. Discover if you are metabolizing your estrogen properly through various urine or blood tests
  3. If you are not metabolizing your estrogen properly, there are natural supplements that will help your body metabolize and release the excess estrogens. Natural supplements like DIM and I3C, components from cruciferous vegetables, help your body process harmful estrogen metabolites that can trigger dis-ease.
  4. Flaxseeds contain lignans that assist in the metabolism of estrogens and protection of estrogen receptor sites in the breast.

When it comes to healing Breast Cancer naturally, there are so many choices and options. Why choose toxic drugs that leave you with debilitating side effects, when you can balance your hormones naturally?
