Hormonal Replacement Therapy

What is a hormone?

In simplest terms, hormones are chemical messengers that course through your bloodstream and enter tissues where they turn on switches to the genetic machinery that regulate everything from reproduction to emotions, general health, and well being. Hormones can be thought of as the life-giving force that animates you physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Female Endocrine System and Hormones

Where are hormones made?

Different glands and organs throughout the body produce hormones:

  • the pancreas produces the hormone insulin
  • the ovaries produce estrogens and progesterone
  • other glands, such as the pituitary and hypothalamus in the brain, secrete hormones such as FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) that control how much estrogen and progesterone are produced by the ovaries.

The Steroid Hormone Family

Some hormones are composed of large proteins and others of small fatty substances derived from cholesterol. One class derived from cholesterol belongs to a family of hormones termed steroids. The steroid family is broken down into five major categories including including:

Electrotherapy – Electric Sympathetic Nerve Block

Electric Sympathetic Block (ESB) is among the services we offer to our Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson area patients. It is an excellent method of electrotherapy for pain relief.

Antibiotic Protocol

Background

Arthritis has been known to exist since prehistoric times. Over 37,000,000 people are currently suffering from some form of rheumatic disease, resulting in tens of billions of dollars in health care costs and lost productivity. This protocol provides the means of returning these people to an active, productive life through the safe and effective use of low dose antibiotics.

Disease Mechanism

This protocol views inflammatory rheumatism as a persistent, cell-mediated hypersensitivity created by long exposure to antigen (toxins) derived from a hidden or invisible microbial source (i.e., mycoplasma or closely related bacterial L forms). It appears that mycoplasma produce their effect in man by creating a cell-mediated response resulting from long-standing cellular parasitism with gradual sensitization of the host through intermittent antigen release from the cells. The therapeutic focus must be on eliminating mycoplasma.
