Anti-aging Hormones leads to New Topical Therapies
Just 50-years ago, 93% of women delivered their baby vaginally and fed them breast milk. If she was unable to naturally feed, a 'wet' nurse (a woman who had recently delivered a baby and successfully nursed) would be hired to supply the baby with nature milk.
Today, the Caesarian Section rate is 35% and less than 50% of women are able to nurse for 6-months, even if they started successfully and wished to delay weaning for as long as reasonably practical.
Being an obstetrician for more than 40 years, I have seen this developing problem and the frustration the modern woman must endure. With our progressive research and experience with the role of environmental toxins, we found that small amounts of a topical hormone used as part of our Novel Medical Protocol might switch on the milk-letdown reflex.
Our research has shown that there is a direct connection between the nipple and the reflex junction in the upper spine. This is the spino-thalamic tract and it has a collection of ganglion (nerve bundles) that connect to the hypothalamic brain center that releases the milk letdown hormone, oxytocin.
When our patented product is applied to the nipples or the clitoris, it is like throwing a switch to the brain center. Milk letdown occurs in about 5 minutes.
It appears that once the hypothalamus is stimulated by the spino-thalamic nerves, that it releases oxytocin into the circulation through the pituitary gland.
Usually, the milk letdown process takes over by itself. Most nursing mothers need only use the cream for 24 to 72 hours. Then they can rely on the cream on a use of need basis.
The cream does not affect any of the mother's central hormones. And using it on a need-by-need basis means that the effect is strictly limited.
This of course will affect Ross Laboratories 3-billion dollar contract with Medicaid to supply man made baby formula to Medicaid mothers who are not nursing.
Maybe in this case, there can be Better Living thorugh Chemistry!
Breakthrough: FINDING the Nipple-Brain Connection
When a baby begins to nurse, nerves in the nipple are activated which cause the release of hormones (prolactin and oxytocin) that cause the breast to produce and then push out or “let-down” the milk. The let-down reflex can occur by thinking about, looking at, or hearing your baby. Sometimes simply looking at a photograph of any baby can stimulate let-down. How long it takes can vary from woman to woman or even from feeding to feeding, but it's usually anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
Did you know:
Emotional stress or the environment and atmosphere in which a mom nurses or pumps can have a negative effect on let-down and make nursing or pumping more difficult.
As older babies become more aware of their surroundings, they often become much more easily distracted which can interfere with successful nursing and the ability to fully empty the breasts.
When a mom is away from home and her baby for an extended period of time (be it hours or days), pumping is essential to maintaining milk production. If a woman is to continue to feed her baby breastmilk, she will need to express milk every few hours throughout the day. If her breasts are not emptied of milk regularly, her milk supply will rapidly decrease.
If a mom is unable to nurse enough to fully empty her breasts or pump when her breasts are full, this can result in engorgement of the breasts. Engorgement is a very painful condition that makes it challenging for the baby to latch on and can cause painful nipples, fever, and swollen lymph nodes. Unrelieved engorgement can cause a low milk supply, plugged ducts, mastitis, or a serious breast abscess.
The best environment in which to breastfeed or pump breastmilk is one in which you feel comfortable. For many women this will be in a calm, un-distracted setting with control of privacy.
Naturally Stimulating Lactation is the Answer
A healthier baby
"The incidences of pneumonia, colds and viruses are reduced among breastfed babies," says infant-nutrition expert Ruth A. Lawrence, M.D., professor of pediatrics and OB- GYN at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in Rochester, N.Y., author of Breastfeeding: A Guide for the Medical Profession (Elsevier-Mosby). Gastrointestinal infections like diarrhea—which can be devastating, especially in developing countries—are also less common.
2. Long-term protection, too.
Breastfeed your baby and you reduce his risk of developing chronic conditions, such as type I diabetes, celiac disease and Crohn's disease.
3. Stronger bones
According to Lawrence, women who breastfeed have a lower risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis. "When a woman is pregnant and lactating, her body absorbs calcium much more efficiently," she explains. "So while some bones, particularly those in the spine and hips, may be a bit less dense at weaning, six months later, they are more dense than before pregnancy."
4. Lower SIDS risk
Breastfeeding lowers your baby's risk of sudden infant death syndrome by about half.
5. Fewer problems with weight
It's more likely that neither of you will become obese if you breastfeed him.
6. A calorie incinerator
You may have heard that nursing burns up to 500 calories a day. And that's almost right. "Breast milk contains 20 calories per ounce," Lawrence explains. "If you feed your baby 20 ounces a day, that's 400 calories you've swept out of your body."
7. It's good for the earth
Dairy cows, which are raised in part to make infant formula, are a significant contributor to global warming: Their belching, manure and flatulence (really!) spew enormous amounts of methane, a harmful greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.
8. Better healing post-delivery
The oxytocin released when your baby nurses helps your uterus contract, reducing post-delivery blood loss. Plus, breastfeeding will help your uterus return to its normal size more quickly—at about six weeks postpartum, compared with 10 weeks if you don't breastfeed.
9. Less risk of cancer
Breastfeeding can decrease your baby's risk of some childhood cancers. And you'll have a lower risk of premenopausal breast cancer and ovarian cancer, an often deadly disease that's on the rise.
10. An unmatched feeling of power
"It's empowering as a new mother to see your baby grow and thrive on your breast milk alone," Lawrence says.
11. A custom-made supply
Formula isn't able to change its constitution, but your breast milk morphs to meet your baby's changing needs. Colostrum—the "premilk" that comes in after you deliver—is chock-full of antibodies to protect your newborn baby. "It's also higher in protein and lower in sugar than 'full' milk, so even a small amount can hold off your baby's hunger," says Heather Kelly, an international board-certified lactation consultant in New York City and a member of the Bravado Breastfeeding Information Council's advisory board.
When your full milk comes in (usually three to four days after delivery), it is higher in both sugar and volume than colostrum—again, just what your baby requires. "He needs a lot of calories and frequent feedings to fuel his rapid growth," Kelly explains. "Your mature milk is designed to be digested quickly so he'll eat often."
12. More effective vaccines
Research shows that breastfed babies have a better antibody response to vaccines than formula-fed babies.
13. A menstruation vacation
Breastfeeding your baby around the clock—no bottles or formula— will delay ovulation, which means delayed menstruation. "Breastfeeding causes the release of prolactin, which keeps estrogen and progesterone at bay so ovulation isn't triggered," Kelly explains.
FOUND THE CURE medicine is based on the concept that the woman seeking medical care is seeking more than a 'fix' for a 'diseased' female organ. Not only is there the effects on her mind, body and spirit but lack of lactation is a response that can be an effect from many other factors: trauma related to delivery, marital or non-marital issues, and medical disease states including thyroid disease, diabetes, and others.
OUR COMPREHENSIVE SERUM ASSAYS seek out other BIOMARKERS, such as saliva and serum oxytocin levels in addition to the Lichten panel previously noted, as to treat the WHOLE WOMAN.
The good news, for women who wish to nurse, is that loss of oxytocin stimulating hormone loss may be easily correctable. State-of-the-art diagnostic hormone testing, can determine your oxytocin hormone levels and your unique bio-identical hormone needs.
No one treatment is correct for everyone. There are many individuals over the years that all of us have treated but to no avail. It is not our desire or intent to suggest that one treatment is the best. Rather, we propose that those who avail themselves of medical care must first educate themselves AS TO CAUSE and then actively discuss with their health professionals what options are available in their individual medical care:
Our first goal, therefore, must be
TREATING THE WHOLE BODY'S WELL-BEING
SAFE, COST-EFFECTIVE, AND AVAILABLE:
Then we can hope to LIVE LONGER & BETTER
in a life style that supports
RENEWED ENERGY, and
LONGEVITY in a purposeful life..
As a result of hormone imbalance related to these total body hormonal conditions, you may be experiencing one or a combination of what have become known as the classic symptoms of aging:

About Edward Lichten, M.D.
Introduction: Biography of Edward M. Lichten, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.C.O.G.
Edward Lichten is a 70-years 'young' board certified physician who was mentored by the legendary gynecologist Frederick P. Zuspan, M.D. Professor Emeritus at Ohio State University. Trained in the most advanced surgery for cancer, Dr. Lichten chose to pursue a search for the medical imbalances that contribute to and cause women's diseases. The first was Endometriosis. In 1979 he invented Laparoscopic Uterine Nerve Ablation to offer women with/without visible endometriosis relief from monthly menstrual pain. "Yes, Women's pain is REAL not psychosomatic."
Information: "Anti-aging", Autoimmune and Environmental Disease
Research: Since the 1960's, gynecologists have treated women with the addition of artificial, man made anti-estrogens and man-made progestins to suppress natural estrogen production. Until just 20 years ago, no one connected chronic, autoimmune diseses with imbalances of 'hormones' let alone man-made xeno-estrogens. Even with advances in laparoscopic surgery, more women are suffering with endometriosis at a younger and younger age. Infertility affects one-third of couples in their 30's. There has been no end or way of preventing Endometriosis. The medications are expensive, create menopause, are depressing and kill sex drive. Used for more than 12 to 24 months is not recommended.
Lichten's Research since the 1980's leads to FOUNDtheCURE:
Dr. Lichten discovered in the early 1980's that there were two components to suppressing endometriosis. He analyzed the workings of a 60-year old pharmaceutical drug for endometriosis, danazol. As a weak androgen, it temporarily reduces the pituitary from stimulating estrogen production from the ovaries. This did dry up the uterine lining and some endometriosis, but it causes acne and facial hair growth. What was unique is that it suppresses liver production of SHBG.
WITHOUT SUPPRESSING SHBG, long-term treatment of severe endometriosis may be doomed to fail. There is a high percentage of women with endometriosis who have additional surgery, misery with/ without hormonal replacement and up to 3-10% like Sheri who are told even the most drastic of surgeries may not bring pain relief.
NOT ONLY ENDOMETRIOSIS RESPONDS TO THE
PATENTED COMBINATION OF NANDROLONE AND STANOZOLOL,
Lichten published in medical journal that two non-surgical diseases of women could be treated effectively with hormones instead of expensive tranquilizers and potentially dangerous medications. His work identified that pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and migraine could be prevented by stabilizing a woman's fluctuating hormone. For majorities of these women, there were no more Prozac® or Imitrex®; no more uncontrollable mood or raging headaches.
What has been overlooked are the effects of man-made Environmental Hormones! Main stream medical research had failed to consider let alone realize that many chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases are mediated through the hormonal effects of man-made plastics, pesticides, flame retardants, hormonal contraception and hormones fed to livestock! That is why so may diseases are becoming more prevalent today: inflammatory bowel disease, thyroid disease, rheumatoid disease, fibromyalgia, insomnia and just old-fashion aging. We know that a 50-year old's broken bones take longer to heal than a normal 25-year old's. BUT today, 25-year old adults have many signs and symptoms and laboratory findings of 50-year olds! No wonder they are so sick!
REBALANCING the hormones involves more than adding back estrogen and testosterone: she can stay more alert, involved, active and recover faster--LIVING BETTER and LONGER when
ALL the HORMONES Are BALANCED and the
ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS are BLOCKED!
MEN ARE AFFECTED TOO!
Radical Breakthrough is using Testosterone to Treat Men for Disease!
In the 1980's, Dr. Lichten experienced what is now called andropause; 'men'pause for men. Night sweats, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, weight gain and depression became his way of life. When searching for a hormonal cause, Dr. Lichten discovered that the laboratory blood tests he was running on women in his FOUNDtheCURE PANEL explained the disorder: men were experiencing a men' pause (equivalent to a woman's menopause). All of his symptoms disappeared and he was able to build muscle tone, mental acuity, and endurance with small doses of natural, bio-idential injectable testosterone (not creams)!
BUT his new found 25-year old energy did not last. He had to block the SHBG to improve his anabolic potential.
Testosterone Reverses Need for Diabetic Medication:
As his women patients saw the difference testosterone made for Dr. Lichten, they demanded their husbands be seen for the miraculous 'fountain of youth' anabolic hormone treatments. The third man to be seen, Joe. N. was a 295 pound, 5-foot 9-inch male with diabetes. On the mixture of anabolic therapies, he lost 85 pounds in the first year and discontinues all his diabetic medications the first month. Now, 24 years later, Joe. N. is still not clinically diabetic.
The Clinical Research: DIABETES
Buoyed by the anti-diabetic effects of testosterone is a multitude of men, Dr. Lichten enlisted James Sowers, M.D., Professor and Chairman of Endocrinology at Wayne State to co-sponsor a university approved clinical study. The results proved that:
1) all diabetic men are low in testosterone,
2) adding back testosterone would reduce the need for insulin by 50% and oral agents nearly completely, and
3) the men on testosterone did not report any low blood sugar complications.
A large clinical study using the mixture of anabolic steroids is being planned as clinical research from Harvard, England and Switzerland support exactly what Dr. Lichten published to the Internet 24 years ago.
The Clinical Research: CROHN'S DISEASE
Bouyed by reversing pain and weight loss in severe inflammatory bowel disease in post-surgical Crohn's patients, Lichten enlisted Peter Higgins M.D., professor and director of Crohns'/ IBD at the University of Michigan to co-sponsor studies relating to these sex hormones. He is first going to determine if the total testosterone and SHBG ratio serves as a BIOMARKER for inflammatory bowel disease. FOUNDtheCURE is offering a parallel COMPASSIONATE STUDY in severe Crohn's patients scheduled for colon resection.
Putting It All Together:
As the author of the Textbook of Bio-identical Hormones, Dr. Lichten has put together some of the missing pieces that underlie most chronic disease-- hormone imbalances caused by aging and our environment. These hormone imbalances can be measured directly and indirectly in common laboratory blood tests (that you will want to have performed before Booking an Appointment). While vitamin D3 deficiency links to insomnia, low growth hormone to fibromyalgia, thyroid to hair loss, fatigue and weight gain, adrenals to afternoon fatigue, pancreas to diabetes and digestion, and the sex hormones of estrogen and testosterone to everything from Alzheimer's to heart disease, obesity and autoimmune diseases!
