Use a Designated Driver ality Healtbcare Close to Itcme" t" HRT Is Not for Everyone Menopause is a fad of life for most women and a major event as well. Trv.- average life expectancy of women in the United States is 79 years and the average age of menopause is 51 years. This means that women now spend one-third of their life after menopause An estimated 40 million American women have reached menopause with another 20 million due to reach menopause in the next decade. However, only 12 percent to 32 _percent of these women are current users of hormone replant therapy (HRT), IS THIS A BAD THING OR SHOULD IT REALLY ,MATTER? This is a common ques- tion. 'What generally brings women to see their doctors are the sgns and symptoms of menopause which am associated with comfort such as hot , night sweats, vagi- nal dryness and deep pattern disruption. But if these symptoms are left untreated, they generally go away on their own and cause no major health problerr Of more importartce to your health is the effect HR'[ has on the reduction of coro- nary artery disease, retardation of osteoporosis, and the effects these hormones have in tmm the structural integrity of a woman' pelvis. HRT reduces commry anecy disease by 50 perce6t from the risk of nonusers. This y is a major benefit when we consider that the leading cause of death in women, as weU as rram, is heart disease, but wornen do not approach the same risk as men until fly rea menopause and aop ptoducin8 estroser Osteoporosis is another leadin 8 cause of injury and death in women. Estrogen is instrumental in the reabsorption o[ caldum and maintaining the normal density of bone, keepin8 them muduy mo Even with calcium supplementation, without estrogen, the bone density decreases and the incidence of bone h-ttm incas by 50 percent among nonuser. Finally, cells that make up the skin lining of the vagina and muscular support of the pelvis are maintained by estrogen, and after menopause, there is an increased inci- dence of prolapse or protrtuiing through the vagina of the bladder, rectum and uterus among ronusers. So, if HRT is so great, why isn't every woman taking it? A Gallup survey conducted for the North American Menopause Sodety found that only one-third of women ages 45-60 years received informatio about menopause from their physidans and only 44 percent were satisfied with the irfformation they did receive. Fear of breast cancer or le sovere trot urqoleasant side effects of HRT such as breast tenderness, breakffu'oush bleedin and weight gain are also strong reasons why won'  not to begin HRT Again, these side effects are usually short-lived and / or dqse- related and can be improved if not relieved by adjusting the dose or method of taking the HRT HRT can be prescribed in many forms including oral and creams, as well as patches with many  formulations. Some cvtafions even conlin the male hormone which has been shown to benefit women in maall doses. It is my experience that a well-edtmated patient will be more comfortable and more likely to conti.mae taking HKI'. IT IS TRUE THAT HRT IS NOT FOR ALL WOMEN! There are two major reasons for not taking HRT. One is a Pets<real history of breast cancer and the second is a hip to O" of blood clots in the major veins of the legs or lungs. This still reprtents a small number of women who have reached menopause. HRT is indeed an important element in women's health care with the additkm of a well-balanced diet and exercise. If you are menopausal or i:nmmmopattsal, I urge you to discuss with your gynecol- ogist what is the correct choice for you.

Fleming Rehoboth Tabernacle In many things we offend all. If any man offend not in Word, the same is a perfect man; and able also to bridle the whole body. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. The tongue is a fire; a world of iniquity; it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature. The tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poLon. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a foun- tain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? James 3, verses 2, 5, 6, 8-11. God is not pleased if we are a people that draw nigh unto him with our mouth, and honor him with our lips, but our heart is far from him. Matthew 15, verse 8. We must continuously remember that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks; that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account there- of in the Day of Judgment. For by our words, we shall be justified, and by our words, we shall be condemned. NLatthew 13, verses 34, 36, 37. We must take heed therefore, and be cautious that we are not rash withour mouth, and let not our heart be hasty to utter anything before God: For God is in heaven, and we upon earth; therefore let our words be few. Senses of Christmas By Sylvia Wright The Sights of Christmas can thrill the soul, Bright lights of red and green and goJd- Lovely wrapped packages beneath a green tree, And a beautifully carved Nativity. The look of wonder in a small child's eyes, When they wake in the morning to find their surprise. The Smell of Christmas will intoxicate you, Mom's home baked fruitcake, and hot gingerbread, too- An open fireplace with a wood-smoke scent, Cedar trees, oranges, and peppermint. Sweet breath on your face as your child comes inside From taking a cardboard (make believe sleigh) snow ride. The Taste of Christmas is always so sweet, Tables are laden with good things to eat, Turkey and dressing and juicy cranberries, Cakes and pies and chocolate covered cherries. And the sweetest taste, as most of us know Is a soft, tender kiss 'neath the mistletoe. The Sounds of Christmas ring through the land, The tinkle of the bell Santa holds in his hand- "The prancin' and pawin' of each little hoof, And sleigh bells as Santa Claus lands on your roof. Church chimes and laughter and squeals of delight, And little children's voices as they sing "Silent Night." The Feel of Christmas is wonderful, too, The silky hair in a doll that's new, The cool, icy feel of a snowfall at dawn, When you run out, excited, without a coat on. The warmth of a fire after you've been outdoors, And the sweet feel of someone you love's hand in yours. But the Meaning of 'Christmas is the very best part, And the sweet love of Jesus you feel in your heart- For the small, holy Child Who was born on that day Grew up as our Savior to show us the way. Christmas is the message that the angels brought then, Of "Peace on earth, and good will to all men." When we vow a vow unto God, defer not to pay it. It is better not to vow, than to make a vow and not pay. Suffer not thy mouth to cause they flesh to sin. Ecclesiastes 5, verses 2, 4-6. Be mindful brethren; that we be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap; If we bite and devour one another, take heed that we be not consumed one of another. Galatians 6, verse 7; Chapter 5, verse 15. Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. Proverbs 6, verse 2. Because death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof; so we must be very mindful of our words; stop jesting, being light heart- ed, teasing all the time. A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the sware of his soul. Proverbs 18, verses 21, 7. Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16, verse 24. The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom; the Lips of the righteous know what is acceptable. Proverbs 10, verses31,32. Who sokeep eth his mouth and his tongue, keepeth his soul from trou- bles. Proverbs 21, verse 23. Every word of God is pure; he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. In conclusion, I entreat each of us to take time to examine ourselves and see if we are in the faith; see if we are working out our soul sal- vation in fear and trembling; if we are striving to be an example of the believer in Word, Conversation, in Charity, in Spirit, in Faith, in Purity--remember our suffi- ciency is of God-Ha-ll-el- ujal II Corinthians 13, verse 5; Philippians 2, verse 12; I Timothy 4, verse 12; II Corinthians 2, verse 5. God Bless You All.
