Cures Discovered By Women For Women

One day all medicine will be practiced this way.

Surprisingly, though, women haven't been told about these breakthroughs. And, even though they are clinically proven, and specifically created with women in mind, some doctors still claim that... when it comes to health... what works for him... should work for her!

But unisex never works in health—and never will!

My mission is to help women discover practical health solutions that I could vouch for as a scientist—and that had been validated by my own patients. Cures I'd seen with my own eyes—or that I used successfully myself.

I call these "Wise Women's Cures" because they are developed with women only in mind.

And, now I am going to help you.

I'm Teresa Rispoli, Ph.D. and I put women's needs first. For 26 years, I've told women the TRUTH about the health choices they now have. And now I'm going to help you. Give me a few moments of your time and you'll discover the new breakthrough cures for...

Arthritis: Once you treat it as a hormone imbalance, often triggered by stress, I believe you can cure the pain and reverse the condition.
Heart Disease is so different in women, it's practically a different disease!

Menopause without medicines. You will have a complete natural hormone replacement therapy.

Weight-gain: Women over 40 often pack on pounds when their hormones get out of balance. Now watch decades of weight gain melt away.

Stress: It's killing you. How to stomp on stress like is was a bad habit.
How to be Healthy—the "Wise Women Way".

Here’s a simple example:

• Old way: Even today, a woman with a bladder problem is often put on exactly the same medication as a man. That means antibiotics. But antibiotics are NOT the answer for women with bladder problems. Why? Because as women get older, they produce less estrogen, and estrogen protects our bladder and urethra from harmful fungi and bacteria. It is estrogen that helps us maintain a mucous shield that protects us from bacterial invasion.

That's why antibiotics just make the situation worse for women. Yeast infections are just the first of the many side effects of antibiotics. Over time, the damage from bladder infections can develop into interstitial cystitis—and then pain becomes really awful.

• New "Wise Woman way": But the new approach recognizes that bladder problems in women are often the result of a natural drop in estrogen levels.

And, estriol, a weak natural estrogen, applied as a cream may cure the problem once and for all! Estriol also builds up the vaginal lining. Yet—despite a reported 95% success-rate with estriol, as reported by the New England Journal of Medicine—many doctors still remain unaware of this cure’s effectiveness for women. Get your copy today.

If you have bladder problems, apply estriol cream and take buffered vitamin C to boost your immunity for 2 weeks.

• Old way: Cranberry juice—in theory—acidifies your urine and flushes out bacteria in your bladder. But cranberry juice with sugar added just encourages bacterial growth. Plus, most women need a more alkaline diet, as you will see in a minute.

• New Wise Woman way: One quarter of a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (yes—the yellow box in your refrigerator!) works much better than cranberry juice for most women. Try it!

These are examples of Woman-Wise Cures—and the truly remarkable results experienced by women when they are treated as women—and not as men with different “bikini-parts”!

Prepare to be astonished by the hundreds of new Wise Woman Cures you are about to discover. Cures that help women with their arthritis, with improved memory, allergies, metabolism, heart health, muscle pain, bone-building, even cancer.

Get complete details.

Here's another example—heart disease, the #1 killer of women.

There are 70 years of research into men's heart disease. But only in the last 5 years have we really come to grips with the fact that heart disease in women is so different, it's practically...a different disease entirely!

Just look at some of the critical differences:

Heart disease in men has a lot to do with plaque buildup. But in women it has everything to do with hormone levels after 50.
The stress test, the gold-standard for detecting heart disease for men, doesn't work as well for women.

Heart protection. Men should take an aspirin a day. But aspirin blocks a woman's production of hormones known as prostaglandin's. And prostaglandin's are an important part of stress management for women! I believe women do better on enzymes such as brome lain and papain. (More on brome lain in a moment).

Heart attacks are quite often "silent" in women, meaning there are no physical symptoms. At the most they get an ache, not the crushing pain common in men. That's why men get rapid treatment in the E. R., while women are often given a prescription for "gastrointestinal distress"—and told to go home and get rest!!

Supplements. Deficiencies in vital heart nutrients like folic acid, vitamin B6, and coenzyme Q10 are significantly more common in women.
Cholesterol levels in men are an important risk factor. But 75% of women with heart problems have low cholesterol! If you do have high cholesterol, the old way to treat it is by using with statin drugs. But we know that statin drugs rob you of the precious coenzyme Q10 women especially need to protect their hearts. You need to know about a new alternative to statins is policosanol, a natural derivative of rice bran.

Let's look more closely at one heart disease risk factor—high blood pressure.

Old Way: Blood pressure is commonly treated with diuretic drugs. But the side effects of blood pressure medicines such as diuretics are among the most disturbing I've seen. Used on their own, these drugs badly compromise the quality of life of many of my women patients. Worse yet, used in combination with other drugs (like the statin drugs I just mentioned), the side effects become so bad that still more drugs have to be added to the daily cocktail... just to make life bearable.

This is a tortuous path and I urge you with all my heart not to take it.

Wise Woman Cure: Instead, I want you to dramatically increase your daily intake of potassium. There are now studies proving that potassium may be as effective as blood pressure medication, and, when taken correctly, has none of the terrible side effects. In one study, the group taking potassium also had fewer strokes.

The verdict is in: potassium works.

It's time for woman-wise cures—cures that restore your delicate hormonal balance naturally ...simply.

These cures have been ignored for so long because the hormone-connection to illness in women is only being understood now.

But the fact is that I believe many of the diseases we suffer—from heart disease to arthritis, to insomnia—are triggered when our hormonal balance is disrupted.

And that's why I believe so many conditions can be cured simply by restoring our natural hormonal balance.

The great news is—I can help you restore this balance. It doesn't take "big gun" drugs. It doesn't take buckets of vitamins or bushels of herbs. It doesn't take a punishing diet.

And it's certainly not complicated. Get your copy today. It's Simple

Somewhere along the way, simple good health became complicated and difficult. And naturally great health was replaced by one drug chasing another around and around your body.

We forgot the way women mend. Our race for cures trampled women's unique hormonal balance-brushed it aside. Women's hormones were difficult, different, irrelevant. Best to ignore them, or at least subdue them!

Women have suffered for a generation or more because of this medical blindness. Over and over again women's health problems went unrecognized, overlooked or ignored. We were betrayed. But not anymore.

At no point in the last 26 years of practice have I felt more optimistic about women's health. You have choices, and you now have the power that comes with knowledge.

Women are omega-3 deficient. I believe the problem is now at epidemic levels. Omega-3 oils cannot be made by your body, so you have to get them from food or supplements. Lack of omega-3 has been linked to high-cholesterol, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer, asthma, diabetes, insulin resistance, menstrual cramps, psoriasis, eczema and stroke! Telltale signs of omega-3 deficiency: cracks in your heel, flaky skin, dry hair, split or brittle nails or bumpy skin on the back of your arms.

Why are women omega-3 deficient? Omega-3 is intentionally removed from oils we buy so that they have a long shelf life. In addition, many oils today are hydrogenated to further "stabilize" them, turning healthy oil into trans fatty oils that are linked to heart disease.

A diet low in omega-3 leaves us feeling hungry again after 2 or 3 hours, instead of 5 or 8. So these oils also help keep us slim.

Wise Woman Cure: You can get omega-3's from fish or from fish oils, but one type of oil is so rich in omega-3's, a tablespoon a day is ample. This is what I recommend for you. The first thing you'll notice is how great your hair looks. Then you'll notice what a great mood you're in-and how cramps and joint pain have simply disappeared.

Women with high amounts of estrogen in their bloodstream have high risks of breast cancer. Your first line of defense against cancer is your liver, which grabs as much excess estrogen as it can out of your blood and gets rid of it. But your liver depends on glucarate acids to do the job. Glucarate makes sure your liver does the job—preliminary studies suggest between a 70% and 87% suppression of cancer cells.

All women can boost glucarate simply by eating apples, apricots, oranges, lemons, and cherries. I can't think of a tastier way to stay cancer-free!

If you are at high risk of breast cancer, you can also boost your glucarate levels by taking it as a supplement (I recommend a specific dosage in The Women's Pharmacy— click here to learn more).

How to Tame Estrogen
As estrogen breaks down in your body, it can become either a cancer-causing compound (called 16-alpha-hydroxyestrone) or a cancer-blocking compound (called 2-hydroxyestrone).

There is a test called the Estrogen Metabolism Risk Assessment that determines if you are at risk for cancer by not breaking down these bad estrogens. Once tested, there are products that can help your body break down these bad estrogens.

Food wise there is alway the "cruciferous connection": the nutrients in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower block the production of cancer-causing estrogens. Better yet, they may stop breast cancer cells from spreading and cause them to die!

Better than Mammograms
Every time you have a mammogram, you expose your breasts to radiation-one of the leading causes of cancer.

Worse yet, the squeezing and bruising your breasts get is so rough, dormant cancer cells can rupture and become activated.

But worst of all is the fact that mammograms are so unreliable, they are practically worthless. One recent study found that annual mammograms were no more effective than standard self-exams in saving lives!

Wise Woman Way: if you haven't heard about breast thermography, it's no surprise—but it's time you did. It's been around for 30 years. A thermogram does not emit radiation or painfully compress your breasts. It simply photographs the tiny temperature changes coming from the breast. Where there's cancer—even at a very early stage—the photograph shows "hot spots" where cancer is becoming active.

This is a huge step forward for women BUT don't expect your doctor to know about it! Mammograms have been discredited, but thermograms are not widely available or well-known. In The Women's Pharmacy I tell you everything you need to talk to your doctor about thermograms—plus where to find a local reputable clinic. It's all laid out for you in The Women's Pharmacy yours FREE today.

The Truth About Cervical Cancer
Doctors too often tell women not to worry about cervical cancer—a Pap smear will catch problems early.

Don't believe it. The test is so unreliable, 40% of cervical smears can receive opposite readings! So, please, don't just rely on early detection to ward off cervical cancer.

Women over 40 pick up stubborn, hard-to-lose weight for one reason that no diet has ever addressed—until now.
It took me years of working with women to figure out why we add a pound-a-year after 40, but the solution is so stunningly easy, you'll laugh when you hear it.

And cheer when you see pound after pound just melt away!

Small chemical imbalances—caused by stress and the aging process—can trigger inflammation (I call it false fat) which packs on the pounds. Change your body chemistry to be a little more alkaline, and the inflammation subsides, taking those stubborn pounds with it!

This is also why diets usually don't work for women over 40.

In fact, many popular diets increase a woman's acidity and make weight loss more difficult!

I can show you exactly how to restore your naturally alkaline state so that these pounds of false fat vanish.

Plus, I'll show you how to squelch your appetite and support your metabolism so that you shed the next 10 pounds—and the 10 pounds after that—all faster than you thought possible.

Women want what works. What really works—safely. For them. These are the new -wise woman cures. Here are some more examples of simple cures that work for women, every time… Why calcium pills aren't the answer for increasing bone density: Because calcium pills interfere with magnesium absorption, and magnesium neutralizes estrogen, taking calcium pills can make you estrogen-dominant! What's more, lack of magnesium can lead to angina pectoris, blood clots, and irritability.

If you lower your calcium intake and increase your magnesium, you'll do a better job of increasing your bone density! Also include Strontium in your diet. It helps build bone.

On antibiotics? Women should always take this: Next time your doctor writes you a prescription for antibiotics be sure to supplement it with bromelain—the enzymes extracted from the stem of the pineapple. Bromelain enhances the effectiveness of antibiotics in every situation studied, and protects you from most of the side-effects.

Most multivitamins won't cut it: During periods of high stress a woman's body needs more calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, B-1, B-12, and B-5. In one study, 1,200 mg of B-5 were "burned up" in a single day of severe anxiety. That's 24 times what you can get in a standard "grocery-store" multivitamin!

A vitamin B deficiency caused by stress impairs your liver's ability to deactivate estrogen. PMS, painful breasts, and heavy menstrual bleeding are just some of the resulting symptoms.

Niacin is the best way to deal with B-deficiency.

A better cure for PMS. Many doctors will tell you that PMS is due to a deficiency of the hormone progesterone, and put you on a synthetic version. Because the side-effects of these drugs are so bad, the next thing you know you're on antidepressants—because of them!

But PMS is not due to simple progesterone deficiency, according to modern research. PMS is more effectively handled by increasing your essential fatty acids (EFA's) with borage seed oil or grape seed extract. These EFA's trigger your body to produce progesterone naturally and spontaneously—no drugs required.

You aren't fatigued—you are magnesium depleted. "Nervous tension was relieved 89% of the time when magnesium nitrate was given one week premenstrually, and for the first 2 days of menstruation. Breast tenderness, headaches, weight gain were relieved."

Stress makes you lose magnesium! When you are low on magnesium you can't produce prostaglandin's, which promotes relaxation.

The last allergy solution you'll ever need. Seasonal allergies are an inflammatory reaction triggered by over-acidity. Restore your body's alkalinity and the allergic reaction may vanish. Combine one teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of spring water and 1000 mg of brome lain. Unlike allergy drugs, this remedy won't leave you feeling groggy.

More protein = less bone. High protein diets, according to a recent study, double a woman's loss of calcium.

To deal with excess acidity triggered by protein, your body has to "borrow" alkaline minerals from your bone-bank. That makes high protein diets a bad deal for women.

A half-teaspoon of sodium and one-quarter teaspoon potassium bicarbonate in a glass of water, one hour before eating, alkalinizes your body so you can deal with a high protein meal without robbing your bone-bank.

Use a kidney bean to give yourself the best night's sleep of your life! Tape a kidney bean to the inside of your right wrist, three finger widths below the crease of your wrist.

Now try to stay awake!
You have just found one of the most powerful sleep-promoting points in Oriental medicine.

If you doubt that it works, try it tonight, just before you go to sleep. My patients have been amazed and they've stopped taking their tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and antidepressants.
