I recently traveled to China with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute OLLI/USF and Kun Shi - Director of the Confucius Institute at USF. We had an amazing journey thru his country visiting Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Kunming, Guilin, and Shanghai.
I just returned from the A4M (III International Brazil Conference-AntiAging& Regenerative Medicine . Every doctor that shook my hand asked me if I have had my thyroid checked. Upon my return, I took their advice.
Huh! I was diagnosed with a hypo active thyroid. No real surprise , Dr. Joseph Calabrese (my brother) had been telling me that for years. How did they know? Cold hands.
Other symptoms? Brain fog. Yes, I constantly felt like I was observing life through a snowy television set.
I have been on bio-identical hormones for only one week and have had amazing results. Symptoms have all but disappeared. Other problems: I have osteoporosis.
Dr. Calabrese has also told me that hormones are like the glue that sticks the calcium to the bones. Without the glue, I can take all the calcium supplements I want and it won't help.
