I WAS A HUMAN GUINEA PIG FOR ANDROSTENEDIONE

Dear Life Enhancement,

I am a female, 37 years of age. I was given Andro, 50 mg, by my HMO doctor and told it was for anemia and the immune system. After one month, I wanted to stop. But the doctor said to continue but take 1/2 pill a day instead of one. So I did.

Then I went to my cardiologist (who was formerly an internist) and he told me to stop. My cholesterol levels had risen from 295 to 335, yet when I spoke to the HMO doctor again, he told me to continue with 1/2 pill per day and not expect any reaction for three months.

At the end of the three months, I have facial hair (like a man) and hair under my arms. My nipples are sore. I have difficulty urinating, my liver and gallbladder hurt badly, and my cholesterol went up again. Also, I am breaking out (pimples like a teenager) on my nose, chin, head, and shoulders.

In addition to several herbs, I am taking oral EDTA chelation now, vitamin B6 and B12, folic acid, and TMG. I did not have your article Don't Be An Andro Guinea Pig - November 1998. If I had, I would not have taken Andro and been a human "Guinea Pig." Your article said that liver and kidney problems were a possibility, but the HMO doctor just said, "Andro is good stuff." Well, the truth is, that is not the case.

LIVING SKIN & NEW FEELING GIVE ME A HEALTHY GLOW

Dear Life Enhancement,

Winter is on its way, but you don't need to be a pale face. Last winter and spring I received so many compliments from my friends and business associates. Remarks like, "Have you been to Florida? You look so healthy. Your color is so good." Well, it's not a secret. I tell everyone about New Feeling and Living Skin. I love your products and my winter glow. But I don't stop there. I sleep better with Melatonin and 5-HTP. I also use VincaSee and CoEnzyme Q10. All are the best quality at a good price. Thank you, Durk, Sandy, and Life Enhancement.

DOCTOR COMPLIMENTS ON UPSWING

Dear Life Enhancement,

Compliments on UpSwing! Very clever. I used to suggest the single components of UpSwing [5-HTP, DHEA, phenylalanine] to some of my clients who were showing similar problems described in your article [New and Better Mood Function - July 1999].

EUROPEAN MEDIA TALKING ABOUT BYE-LORI

Dear Life Enhancement,

Just to say thank you for getting Bye-Lori to me so quickly. I first heard about it on an English radio station. Apparently trials are being done in an English hospital on the effectiveness of mastic [found in Bye-Lori] being used to treat stomach ulcers.

They say it is available in the UK but I have been unable to find it. As Bye-Lori is trade marked to you do you have any idea where I can buy it in the UK? If not I'll just have to keep ordering it from you via e-mail.

Thanks once again
