Thyroid Balance

By Dr. Carrie Demers, director of the Himalayan Institute Total Health center.

Hypothyroidism is medical speak for a low functioning thyroid, the tiny butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck. This rather common condition affects around 10 percent of women over 40; and unfortunately, once you reach menopause, you’ve nearly doubled your chance of such a diagnose. Depending on the severity of the problem, your doctor will probably prescribe a daily thyroid hormone replacement pill. However before you resign to a lifetime of pill swallowing. I think a little research is in order to determine the cause of your sluggish thyroid. There are several holistic options exist that [Read more...]

The Forgotten Hormone



The forgotten Hormone



Outside the United States, the use of Relaxin can be traced back thousands of years to the Chinese culture where the consumption of certain pig organs, high in Relaxin, was used to reinvigorate human organs and to promote good health. Relaxin was first discovered and investigated in the United States in 1926, when Frederick Hisaw, a soon to be Harvard researcher, reported the muscular relaxation benefits of porcine Relaxin injections in female guinea pigs. Relaxin was identified as a polypeptide hormone belonging to the insulin family and has been found in females of all species studied.

During the 1950s and 1960s there were several brand of FDA approved porcine Relaxin, which sold under the brand names Lutresin, Cervilaxin and Releasin. They were used extensively for such conditions as cervical ripening, premature labor, in vitro fertilization, pulmonary fibrosis, peripheral arterial disease, glaucoma and scleroderma.

In 1962, the Kefauver-Harris Drug Amendments mandated that all FDA approved pharmaceutical products, in addition to being safe, had to prove efficacy. Since porcine Relaxin had been used safely and effectively for 18 years, and because of the expense in conducting clinical studies to prove efficacy, the company that produced Lutresin chose to circumvent the mandate by taking the FDA to court. The company ultimately lost this legal battle and as a result, porcine Relaxin and many other drugs were taken off the market in 1972 due to unsubstantiated efficacy, not safety issues.


Relaxin (porcine), a polypeptide hormone belonging to the insulin family, was first discovered in the United States in 1926 and today over 1,500 research articles have been published on its impact on human physiology. Despite this body of evidence, porcine Relaxin has been virtually ignored in the United States due to a lack of communication between the scientific and medical communities and due to changes in pharmaceutical economics as a result of the 1962 Kefauver-Harris Drug Amendments.

During the 1990’s, Dr. Yue observed that many of his female patients with multiple health issues (fibromyalgia) reported their symptoms began or worsened after menopause or hysterectomies. These patients also reported that their symptoms went into remission during pregnancy, but returned one or two months after delivery. Dr. Yue was intrigued by these reports and began to look for a substance produced naturally in the body that would account for his observations. Initial research focused on the two most well known female hormones: estrogen and progesterone. However, no link was established.

Dr. Yue continued his research which ultimately pointed to the hormone Relaxin. During pregnancy Relaxin production increases almost 10-fold while following menopause or hysterectomy Relaxin levels are dramatically reduced. While Dr. Yue initially focused on the benefits of using Relaxin to treat his fibromyalgia patients, his continuing research indicated Relaxin has been shown to be beneficial for the treatment of a wide range of health and wellness issues. Some major chronic diseases like diabetes, peripheral vascular, psoriasis, all seems to have benefited after treatment of relaxin.

Dr. Sam Yue after reading over 1,500 scientific research papers and spent over 10 years treating more than 3,000 patients with Relaxing therapy with positive results. This results are shared with many physicians that have [Read more...]

Heavy menstrual bleeding that can be helped with vitamin

Most doctors don’t even know about.

I had gone through a period of heavy bleeding and clumps of blood comes out. That period was miserable. I had read Dr. Jonathan Wright’s special reports called “New Secrets Every woman Needs to know”and would like to share with you.

If you’re a woman who has abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding. The clotting and cramping that often accompany this heavy bleeding may be painful; there is a risk for anemia from the high blood loss and you may feel weak, tired or sick for days .

Unfortunately, there aren’t many effective or appealing treaments for this problem. The mainstream doctors’s recommendations just don’t work. One option is to go on the birth control pill. which means pumping your body full of synthetic hormones. Another is to undergo dilation and curettage, often referred to as a ” D&C”. This procedure involves scraping the uterine lining; not at all pleasant , and it does not work in majority of the cases. A third option- is to undergo a hysterectomy. I found a lot of my friends take this options. Most women are not aware that your ovaries are your fountain of youth. After hysterectomy your ovaries will become non functioning( after 2 years) and all the hormones that your bodies need to keep youngful are not available for you. Hormone like progesteon, estrgen and relaxin are vital hormone to your health.

This is Dr. Jonathan Wright’s protocal for releasing that symtoms, he has been very successful in treating women with heavy bleeding since 1977 :

He recommends using 50,000 units of vitamin A (not beta carotene) daily, and have found the majority of the women returns to normal bleeding pattern in jusgt one or two months.

ALthough the original research found tha 50,000 units of vitamin A daily was effective when given 15 days, he recommendes at least 30 days at this amount, then reduce the amount to 15,000 to 15,000 units to prevent recurrence.

You should first be checked by a gynecologist or family doctor for fibroids and/or other structure or functional abnormality before trying any line of treatment.

I hope this is helpful.
