I hope so too!! I used to change my patch twice a week but am now only changing once a week.
I don't have any side effects at all from it, as a mattar of fact , it works great for me!!
But I just don't want to be on drugs for the rest of my life!!!

I had horrible side effects from the patch and stopped using it. Menopause and it's symptoms are far better than my side effects were. Hope you can stop using it soon.

I always assumed it was just the individual. My mom never had to have HRT, she breezed right through the whole thing, but my aunt (Dad's sister) had a horrible time. But my Mom is one of those lucky people who doesn't pay any attention to what she eats and has always been thin and healthy. My aunt, otoh, has always had to watch her diet closely...hmmm.

Let us know what you find out. I'll start looking into it too. Thank you.

I'm not sure. I'm still researching.
I have heard Ellen Jaffe Jones say that she never had to have HRT.
I have heard others say this as well.
So, I guess it's possible. I'm going to research more before I stop patching up!!

Can you get rid of that estrogen patch by following the FOK plan? I have always thought that was something that would be the one exception to trying to get off meds....

I'm new to this team, my name is Jeannie.
I am 53 & my DH is 67.
When I met DH he was living off of microwave meals, Chick-fil-A & coffee.
He had high blood pressure, triglycerides & cholesterol & was on meds for all three.
I started him on the road to a healthier diet when we met & started dating.
Soon after, I went vegetarian & he soon followed suit about 80% of the time.
I moved in & started cooking for him & he had no choice but to eat vegetarian :)
18 months ago he had a hemorragic stroke.
He recovered fairly but still had to take his blood pressure meds.
He had stopped taking the statins about 6 months after the stroke because his cholesterol was well within normal range & because they made him so sore. He already suffers from full body soreness due to the stroke.
In Janurary we decided to go totally Vegan.
A few weeks ago I decided to only cook from Dr. Esselstyn's Book& the FOK web site .
I am glad to say that he is now on only 1 medication but, is taking only 1/4 of a pill once daily & is slowly cutting that down to nothing.
His BP runs around 116 over 70 most all the time!!
He has more energy & much less soreness!! This is so great!!
He said that he always knew that we were getting healthier but never really thought that he wouldn't have to take meds but, seeing is believing!!
WFPB life forever!!!

HEY YA'LL !!!!
