    Default Suzanne Somers takes 60 pills a day & bioidentical hormones

    AP

    Suzanne Somers looks great, but is her health regimen dangerous?

    Suzanne Somers has always been preoccupied with staying fit and looking young.

    But has the former Three’s Company star gone too far?
    On an appearance Thursday on "Oprah," Somers, 62, invited cameras into her home to watch her daily routine of hormone injections and supplement popping.
    She begins with rubbing a syringe of estrogen on one arm, every day. For two weeks out of the month, she rubs progesterone on the other.
    After that, she injects estriol vaginally, which she graciously spared the audience from watching.
    But it doesn’t end there.
    She can’t start her day without taking 40 pills, 15 of which she downs in a thick, yellow smoothie her husband makes for her (she says it's the secret to their marriage!). Then she ends her day with an additional 20 pills at night before bed.


    While she admits the routine makes her seem “like some kind of fanatic,” she says it has helped her beat the “Seven Dwarfs of Menopause: Itchy, B**chy, Sleepy, Sweaty, Bloated, Forgetful and All Dried Up.”
    “I wanna be there,” she said, pointing to her head. “Until I’m 110. And I'm going to do what I have to do to get there.”


    And she isn't kidding. Somers has also been the spokeswoman for the fitness device ThighMaster, has admitted that she is “not against going under the knife,” and has released several exercise DVDs and books.

    Umm.. isn't progesterone that steroid hormone women take when they're pregnant?

    All those injections and supplements don't seem safe. She should pass them off to Madonna to see what happens.

    I think she may be on the far side nearing into fanatic territory but based on my own hormonal woes - I think she's got the right idea.

    Progesterone is one of the many hormones women make and need,
    it is a part of your monthly cycle, sex drive and it is there for makin' babies.

    Synthetic versions are also in birth control pills and mini pills.

    I somewhat agree. She seems a bit of a fanatic but menopause is a bitch and this woman has found a way to keep herself from going through the many ravages of such.

    My understanding is, her regiment forces her to get a period on a regular basis and her hormonal levels are much like a woman in their mid twenties. I'm not sure how safe it is but hell, if I could afford it, I'd do it.

    She may be on the edge of a trend. As the Boomers enter their twilight years, 'Age Management' could be the next big thing. They're unlikely to age graceful - they've never done anything gracefully in the lives.

    I am not going to try this-unless a doctor says yes.

    *waves hand frantically* I'm a baby boomer and believe me, there is nothing graceful about menopause. It makes PMS seem like a mere sneeze.

    Agreeably, I've lived a rather colorful life and in part it probably has made things worse but DAMN, when those hormones start dumping...well let's just say it's hell. PURE HELL!

    I wonder what the per day cost of this regimen is?

    I think she might be on to something too...

    When I start to get to that age, I will definitely do some researching this stuff.

    Hope I wasn't out of line with the crack about Baby Boomers. I was speaking in terms of sweeping generalizations.

    No, not at all, at least not for me. It gave me a hearty chuckle which I appreciate. My suggestion to all pre-menopause women, start reading up on it now. I wish I knew way back what to expect.

    My understanding is some woman sail through with no problems, but most go through hell and don't understand what is happening to their bodies.

    You were very kind to respond.

    My poor sister is starting with menopause. Poor thing calls me crying and just frustrated to no end. It doesn't help that she has 3 teenagers. So, I checked out Suzanne's books from the library to see if any of it can help my sister. I think it comes down to finding what works for you and not this cookie cutter approach of one size fits all.

    I second that idea! Knowing Vadge, she probably thinks her vagina is immortal and her eggs will never dry up.

    Why the hell is she rubbing hormones on her arms?

    I wonder what the average age is for the onset of menopause. I'm 38, and sometimes I have major hot flashes a few days before my period but other times I'm fine. Is is genetic? If my mom didn't hit menopause till late 40's, does that have any factor in when it will hit me?

    I am not looking forward to it. At all.
