Men, this column is for you as well; your wife, mother, sister, or girlfriend has a 1 in 3 chance of getting a hysterectomy in America. One third of women in the U.S. will needlessly be castrated at an average age of only 40. Yes, female castration is the correct medical term. 99% of this butchery is completely unnecessary, and serves only to profit the medical profession. Dr. John Lee has written extensively on this subject. The side effects from castration include outright psychosis and severe psychological disorders, increased cardiovascular disease, and premature death. You can read such books as No More Hysterectomies, How to Avoid a Hysterectomy, The Hysterectomy Hoax, The Castrated Woman, and Hysterectomy Before and After if you have not had this operation.
Often doctors will leave the ovaries, and lie to the women. They tell them their ovaries will remain functional. Some doctors are actually stupid enough to believe this. The fact is that the ovaries always atrophy and die after removal of the uterus as the blood flow ceases. The ovaries always die after a hysterectomy. This is a medical fact. Obviously the ovaries are necessary for the entire life of a woman, since they secrete vital hormones. The uterus, like the tonsils, spleen, and appendix, is not an “optional” organ as the medical profession loves to tell you. Hysterectomy is castration plain and simple.
What can a woman do who has had a hysterectomy? First of all, read Natural Health for Women and Macrobiotics for Everyone. The most important thing to do is make better food choices, and eat whole, healthy natural foods. Diet cures disease. Diet is everything. We eat twice the calories and twice the protein we need. The average American eats 42% fat calories, and most all of these are saturated animal fats. We eat 160 pounds of various sugars every year we don’t need at all. Whole grains are almost non-existent our diets. Our foods are heavily refined, lack nutrition, and are full of chemicals and preservatives. We are overfed and under-nourished. Eat whole grains, beans, fresh green and yellow vegetables, local fruits, seafood, soups, and salads. Stop eating red meat, dairy products, poultry and eggs, refined foods, and tropical foods.
The second thing is to balance your basic hormones. Without a uterus and ovaries the endocrine system becomes very unbalanced. Inexpensively saliva test your estradiol, estrone, estriol, testosterone, and DHEA. Blood test your pregnenolone at www.walkinclinic.com. Take melatonin, if you are over the age of 40. Go to www.healthcheckusa.com to test your free T3 and free T4 (panel 2) without a doctor for $85. Make sure your fasting blood sugar is 85 or less. This is better than testing insulin. If it isn’t under 85, then get a one hour, one draw glucose tolerance test (GTT) for your insulin and blood sugar metabolism. Growth hormone (GH) is very expensive and the benefits minimal. Use a good, natural transdermal progesterone cream. You don’t need to test your levels since you have no operant ovaries. Your cholesterol should be about 150 and your triglycerides under 100. If any of your hormone levels are too high only diet and lifestyle will lower them. Any that are too low can be brought up to youthful levels with bioidentical hormones.

The third thing you can do is take the approximately 20 proven natural supplements for women covered in my two books mentioned above. This includes All Your Minerals and All Your Vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin E, flax oil, vitamin B-6, folic acid, NAC, PS, beta carotene, beta glucan, beta-sitosterol, FOS, acidophilus, glucosamine, DIM, soy isoflavones, CoQ10, lipoic acid, glutamine, DIM, carnosine, and acetyl-L-carnitine. Read Serious Supplement Program.
The fourth thing to do is fast one day a week on water from dinner to dinner. This gives your body a rest and time to heal itself 52 times a year. Once you get used to the one day weekly fasts please join us for the monthly two day Young Again international fast. (The schedule is on the website home page.) Don’t take any prescription drugs. Limit or end any bad habits like coffee.
The fifth thing is to avoid an prescription drugs or medical treatments.
The sixth thing is to drop any bad habits like coffee, alcohol, or desserts.
The last thing you can do is get regular exercise. Just walking a half hour a day will help normalize your endocrine system. Join a gym and work out two or three times a week. Put an inexpensive universal gym in your spare bedroom. If you do circuit training or supersets (which means you do an exercise, rest about 15 seconds, and then do your next exercise) you can do a full professional workout of fifty sets in only a half hour.
If you do all these things, you can actually be healthier than other women your age that never had a hysterectomy. Diet, hormones, supplements, fasting and exercise. The medical profession can’t help you here- you have to help yourself. Please read the article Seven Steps to Natural Health.
