: I WAS DISHEARTENED TO READ A REPORT THAT IPRIFLAVONE HAS NO POSITIVE EFFECT ON PRESERVING BONE MASS, IT MAY HAVE NEGATIVE EFFECT - INCREASING THE RISK OF INFECTION. IT SEEMS TO HAVE DECREASED THE NUMBER OF DISEASE FIGHTING WHITE BLOOD CELLS IN A GROUP OF WOMEN AT RISK. ALTHOUGH, NEITHER THE WOMEN ON IPRIFLAVONE AND THOSE WITH THE PLACEBO HAD MORE ATTACKS OF THE COLD AND FLU.: IT WAS ADMITTED THAT IT DID PRESERVE BONE MASS IN SOME WOMEN BUT NOT IN THOSE AT RISK. THESE STUDIES DRIVE ME CRAZY! ANY COMMENTS???

: : Yes, I have l999 when I was diagnosed with l999, Vol.No.2) And Lilly's advertising claims for its Evista just plain lied about. (March 1999, Vol. 5 No.3.) I immediately contacted a Bethesda Maryland pharmacist who had been indespensible when I was dealing with systemic candidasis 20 years ago. He recommended ipriflavone and a preparation he developed himself of 13 minerals and vitamins called Bone Guardian, by Pathway Inc. (Available on the internet the_apothecary.com) Irv says taking calcium alone in any form is dumb since bones of course are made up and need many more elements. Yesterday I got the results from my follow-up bone scan. (I had spent the previous day reading the message board, for the first time,including yours expecting to have to defend my anti-drug position. And wow! did I ever get the ammunition) Anyway much to my joy, and the doctor's amazement, not only was there no decline in bone density, but there was enough improvement that I am no longer considered an "osteopenian." Ipriflavone is in soy beans and to be fair I must admit that I have also increased my consumption of soy products (my cholesterol had dropped 45 points in the same 17 months!) My pharmacist provided me with abstracts of eight studies on ipriflavone, done by independent researchers, (not employees of pharmaceutical corporations) and it does indeed look good. Irv Rosenberg, the pharmacist owner of the Apothecary, has in pre-internet days, been most generous of his time and vast knowledge, (gratis of course) but he may now be swamped.

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK. I AM NOW TAKING THE IPRIFLAVONE AND WE SHALL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
