• For women afraid to take estrogen and other hormones, the reasons to take hormones include prevention of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease. depression, memory loss, colorectal cancer, macular degeneration of the retina, and cataracts.  No one has to take hormones, but why would you not want to enhance your health in so many varied ways?  –Estrogen, combined with progesterone, does not cause an increase in cancer risk.
  • Fibromyalgia may be hormone resistence (especially of the thyroid).
  • Melatonin taken at night (starting at 3 mg) has very potent anti-cancer effects, and can turn grey hair back to it’s original color. We have this available in our pharmacy.
  • Men’s free testosterone should be around 40.  If you would like to know your free testosterone, we can draw you in our clinic.
  • Hormone testing (to determine if your hormones are optimal), will immediately be converted to blood testing 5 hours after your dose of hormones.  If you have saliva tests to test how your hormones are working, please call Michele, and we will credit your account for the saliva test.  We cannot do this if the hormone sample has been sent in.  We will still use saliva testing for people starting hormones and who have never taken hormones.
  • I believe I have been underprescribing progesterone.  If you feel that your progesterone is not working, we will need to convert you to progesterone triturates (which dissolve under the tongue).  Please call the office if you want me to prescribe what will be a more absorbable form of progesterone.  Dr. Rouzier feels all over-the-counter progesterone is worthless.  If you are getting symptom relief, continue.  If not, let’s convert your progesterone.
  • Dr Rouzier feels there are no over-the-counter HGH (human growth hormone) supplements that work.  Unfortunately, it is not legal to prescribe HGH for it’s youth-enhancing and well-being effects.  This hormone is very expensive (over $1000 per month), and if interested, I would recommend that you go to Utah or Palm Springs to see Dr. Rouzier.
