Each year more than one million people are diagnose with cancer in the US. Numerous types of cancer may occur in the body, but breast and prostate cancer are two of the most common types.
However, the positive news is that it may be possible to prevent the occurrence of these two cancers with early diagnosis and treatment of hormonal imbalances in both women and men.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an important treatment in compounding pharmacy, which can help to correct the hormonal imbalances and prevent or minimize the incidence of various health conditions, including breast and prostate cancer. The key is to check the hormonal levels periodically after the age of 40, and take early action to improve the levels if there are indications of an imbalance.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the judicious and accomplished Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides awesome, proven, and salient solutions to a variety of health conditions, which may not be resolved successfully with conventional medicine. The AIP integrative pharmacy provides hormonal replacement therapies to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Hormonal Imbalances – Cause of Breast and Prostate Cancer
Breast Cancer in Women
Numerous research studies have shown the correlation between hormone levels and the risk of breast cancer in women or prostate cancer in men. Researchers have noted that women who have gone through multiple pregnancies are at the lowest risk of developing breast cancer.
A woman experiences elevated levels of estriol and natural progesterone hormones during pregnancy. These hormones are known to protect against breast cancer. Provera and Premarin, which are synthetic hormones, will however increase the risk of breast cancer in women.
Women above the age of 50, who are experiencing menopause or perimenopause, are at a higher risk of breast cancer. Progestin and estrogen levels significantly decline during these stages. Other anti-aging cell protective hormones such as thyroid, melatonin, estriol and testosterone also decline. The immune system becomes weaker due to the low levels of these hormones, resulting in an increased risk of breast cancer in women.
Prostate Cancer in Men
The risk of prostate cancer is higher in men above the age of 50 because this is time when hormone levels of testosterone and progesterone in men begin to drop. Prostate cancer, in fact, will occur most likely in men in the US who live beyond the age of 65.
As a man ages, not only his testosterone and progesterone levels will progressively go down, but at the same time, the estrogen levels will go up. Young men typically have higher levels of testosterone, which indicates why prostate cancer is almost non-existent in that age group.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in compounding pharmacy is a successful way to address hormone imbalances in both women and men. Early treatment with BHRT will significant cut down the risk of breast or prostate cancer.
