Q. Dear Dr. Pearson, I have been taking your bio-identical progesterone for a few years and never felt better. But I have a girlfriend that just had a total hysterectomy. She is going to be put on hormone therapy. She smokes and her doctor told her she would have to quit smoking because between the cigarettes and the hormones she would have a stroke. They told her the hormones clot the blood and between the two, it would create major "sludge" that would cause a stroke. I don't smoke, but I wondered if the progesterone I am taking cause...

Q.    Dear Donna, My son is prone to dental cavities and we choose to avoid fluoride. What supplement would you recommend for him to take for prevention? He used to take "bio-dent" by Standard Process. What does Dr. Pearson think about using fluoride? Nattasha, Oklahoma A.   Dear Nattasha,  Coach D said to skip the fluoride and bone up on flossing and brushing two times a day.  I tend to agree with her, as good oral hygiene is a must.  In addition, I would add a good probiotic to any dental regimen. ...

Q.    Hi Donna, What does Doc think of  "fibromyalgia" anyway. Does he think it is a real disease or another diagnosis that doctors come up with when they cannot explain these symptoms? I am not sure myself.  Francine, Wisconsin A.   Dear Francine,  Great question and the short of it is that it is just another diagnosis.  It is a systemic inflammatory condition with multifactorial foundational causes. Fibromyalgia results from biochemical imbalances that we do our best to correct as quickly and natu...

Q. Dear Doc, I am cold a lot and believe that I have low output from my thyrold. I had an ND from a Tahoma Clinic in Tukwila WA run some tests and he ended up prescribing L-Tyrosine and also added Selenium to my regular supplement list. It does not appear to be working, particularly in the winter time. The weather here in Western WA is not as cold as some areas of the country but it does freeze here and that is when it is the most miserable. Exercise does help relieve the cold feeling for awhile but I do feel cold in the house when the ...

Q. Hi Donna: I had a record amount of blood clots during my most recent menstruation. What are they and why? I used to have pain-free periods but now on the first day, I have painful cramps that are short in length but high in intensity. Why is this and what can I do? Thank you as always! Nattasha, Oklahoma A. Dear Nattasha, You have a healthier and more full uterine lining which is sloughing. You were very high in progesterone in the past and though hopefully the detox cleared most out, retesting at some point to confirm would be help...

Q. Hello Doc, I am supposed to begin taking hormones as a result of a recent visit to my doctor. I'm having second thoughts on using a synthetic hormone. Can you shed some more insight about taking hormone replacements that might ease my fears? There is so much conflicting information out there that I just don't know what to think. Thank you. Vicky, Florida A. Dear Vicky, Thank you for asking. No one should go into any program unless they are educated and know exactly what they are taking and why. Let me start out by saying that I would never a...
