A couple of quick question-and-answer notes this week, on subjects we hear a lot about and treat often - hormones and hormone balance is one of Dr. Myatt's specialties, and hypertension or High Blood Pressure is amazingly responsive to her natural treatments...

"Sheila" writes to ask:

I was just reading about increased doses of pregnenolone could result in hair loss. I sure don't need that, so I would like to know what do you think is a safe amount for a 47 year old perimenopausal women. I ordered your progesterone cream that has pregnenolone in it. I have been losing my hair somewhat recently in the last few months due to my hormones being imbalanced and just wanted to know what you think about what the normal dosage is for a women my age. Thanks "Sheila"

Dr. Myatt answers:

Hi "Sheila"

I wish I could give you a "stock" answer, but there is no such thing when it comes to peri-menopausal hormone levels! I ALWAYS perform a female hormone profile on my patients so I will know exactly what we are dealing with. That way, your hormone prescription can be "custom tailored" to suite you.

Also, there are MANY health problems that can cause hair loss. Low thyroid function, excess adrenal function, nutritional deficiencies and some of the most common. It's hard to blame your hormones when the "other things" have not also been looked at. Look here for some additional information on female hormone balance from our website in case you haven't seen it.

Progesterone is available without pregnenelone.

Again, without knowing what your current hormone status is, you are really "shooting in the dark." Also, until you have a medical professional help "rule out" other causes of hair loss, you may be doing yourself a disservice to try and fix things yourself. There's a reason that we go to school for 8 years just to learn the "doctor biz"!

I'm sorry there's no easy answer to your question, but if you need help, I am available for alternative medicine telephone consultations

Please let me know how this all works out for you!

In Health,
Dr. Myatt

I truly enjoy your information w/ HealthBeat.. I do have a question.. on blood pressure.. you mention reducing it naturally. can you give me some ways to go about that, thank you again for your time.

And Dr. Myatt answers:

Hi "Kirk"

So glad to hear that you're enjoying the newsletter! Here is information about HBP (High Blood Pressure) and what to do for it, on our Wellness Club website:

The Super Fast Diet also lowers BP along with excess weight in people who need to lose some excess fat. Blood pressure typically drops when one loses weight, especially on a reduced carbohydrate diet. In fact, I have to take most patients off BP meds when we start treating them because their pressures get too low!

Let me know how this works out for you. I am available for alternative medicine telephone consultations to help you with this issue if you can't get to the bottom of it by yourself.

In Health,
Dr. Myatt
