Flu Shot

I am on the fence whether to get a flu shot. CDC just issued a pandemic flu warning for this season. I had decided not to get the shots anymore because of the mercury; on the other hand, I cannot afford flu this year because of my schedule and being near my mother a lot who is on immunosuppressants....

Re: "Eating on the Wild Side" Book

Funny to re-read the Kindle comments. I'd forgotten them. I just got my first Kindle (paperwhite) and love it. First book I'm reading on it is this one. I had only skipped around before. P. 25 first confirmation of my theory that if we get an antioxidant level that compares with the "olden"...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Hi Starfish, When you talk to your doc, make sure you give him/her a printout of the article in the first link in this thread. Most docs won't see any reason to take hormones if you have no symptoms, but we ApoE4s may be in a different boat, even if more studies need to be done, as long as s/he thin...

Re: E4 interaction with a High Carb Diet

Gilamesh, that's a very good point. It's similar to one I made recently in another thread about the possibility that the free radical load generated by eating more carbs (whatever amount that is) might be offset by an extremely high phytonutrient/antioxidant diet, akin to what's described in the boo...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

So happy to hear it! The only thing I've ever seen in EDS circles is don't ever use progesterone.This is good to know. I wish others would try too.

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Interesting, I did try them together for a couple months to see if the estrogen would offset the progesterone, but no luck. Maybe after a while. How long would you wait?

Re: E4 interaction with a High Carb Diet

This means -- I am not going to stop making this point, sorry! :) -- that we can't tell from the abstract whether it was dietary constituents, or higher caloric intake on the HCD that produced the observed effect.... GB Thanks for making the point again Gilgamesh. I'm too busy to read all the threa...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

Hi Starfish, I wonder about this situation where estrogen sensitive breast cancer rules out HRT. I can see where it would be so true when it comes to conventional HRT, and I if I were in your shoes I'd be very cautious too. But something maybe to research and ask your doctor about ... There is a les...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

I'm 51. Also had the meno crash last fall a year ago. Hormone levels didn't yet justify supplementation. Got better during the winter, then began crashing again at the end of Aug. My hormone levels were finally "there" and I got on bioidenticals. But I can't take progesterone due to excess...
