Cancer Connection - Hormone Imbalance
Testosterone naturally drops as men age, starting around age 35, and can make men moody and irritable. Aging male syndrome (AMS), also called male menopause or andropause occurs between the ages of 35
and 65 (normally between 40 and 55) when their hormone levels (especially testosterone) go down. Testosterone is a hormone that helps maintain sex drive, sperm production, pubic and body hair, muscle, and bone.
Testosterone levels decrease over time. This decline
is normal in healthy males as they age. Unlike women who lose their fertility (ability to get pregnant) when they reach menopause, men do not lose their fertility. All men have different experiences. Some menís hormone levels go down more than others, and some have more
symptoms than other men.
Estrogen and Progesterone in men
Men have a lower and more consistent level of these two hormones but it is still vitally important that they remain in balance and that a man does not become estrogen dominant. Considering the overload of stimulation of our estrogen receptors from petro-chemicals, plastics, and other toxins, it is important for me to use progesterone to keep the balance between these hormones, and in so doing, help to protect them against the hormonal cancers eg. Prostate and testicular, as well as breast cancer which is on the increase for men. As progesterone will also help to improve testosterone levels, it will assist with male menopause as well. Testosterone not only has an
effect on the physical, but also emotional and mental aspects of men's health and quality of life.
Dosage for a man, however, is far less and a jar will last for 3 months.
There are many factors associated with hormonal imbalance and the risk of breast and other hormonal cancers, among them:
- Declining levels of progesterone as we age, and/or with removal of the ovaries in hysterectomy;
- Xenohormones in the form of pollutants and pesticides,
- Oral contraceptives and synthetic hormone replacement therapy(HRT) all contribute to an excess of estrogen in the body;
This condition is known as estrogen dominance. Since estrogen stimulates cell growth, a predominance of it especially in the absence of adequate levels of progesterone (common in the menopausal years), presents an increased risk of cancer.
Hormonal health depends upon the balance of progesterone and oestrogen. In women for example oestrogen is meant to be the predominant hormone in the first half of the menstrual cycle and progesterone the predominant one in the second half. This is essential to ensure that the build up of the lining of the uterus (promoted by the estrogen) comes away completely each month. This is how we know that the only way to counteract too much estrogen is by large doses of progesterone.
Just as estrogen turns on the cancer gene, so progesterone turns on the BCL2 gene which protects one against cancer.
