How We FoundTheCure


The physical disease of endometriosis was discovered 150 years ago and destroys millions of women's lives worldwide. More than 100,000 hysterectomies and probably 500,000 unnecessary outpatient surgeries for bleeding and pain are performed in the US annually.

Link to Man-Made Environmental Toxins

Man-made pesticides, dioxin, hormone contamination and plastics are 'xeno'-estrogens. They enter our cells as do natural hormones but turn on the production of autoimmune antibodies that allow endometriosis to  flourish and grow.

Breakthrough  - BLOCKING the TOXINS

Lichten has spent 30-years researching how these xeno-estrogens enter the cell. All standard FDA medications only reduce production of normal hormones. Both natural and xeno-estrogens and androgens compete to get in to the cell through the A-R receptor in the cell wall.  Lichten found that naturally occurring, bio-identical nandrolone has 30 times more binding affinity than any estrogen.

*Weekly small dose of nandrolone Works to Stop Pain!


Estrogens stimulate SHBG production that pulls the good nandrolone away, letting estrogens get in.

*Small dose of stanozolol reduces SHBG by 80%!



A bio-marker is a recurrent finding in a biological system. In endometriosis there are:

  • Signs:  pelvic pain, with menstruation, and              pain with intercourse

  • FIndings: pelvic mass on vaginal examination, at laparoscopy and/or ultrasound

  • Lichten found low levels of total testosterone and high levels of SHBG in severe cases of endometriosis. This ratio is named the Free Androgen Index (FAI).  As the woman's endometriosis disease is reduced, the FAI improves and returns to normal.

  • Lichten found that women with low FAI are at risk for endometriosis and other autoimmune diseases. Those with abdominal pain and infertility likely have endometriosis. There is an increased risk of thyroid disease, pernicious anemia (GI disease), lupus, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.

Trial Eliminates Most Gynecology Surgery

  • Standard of Medical Care uses the synthetic female contraceptive hormones when there are 'non-emergency female problems' that include bleeding, pain and ovarian cysts. Adding more unnatural estrogens to the  already toxic woman will not treat the causes of her pain or bleeding.
  • FoundTheCure/Endometriosis therapy will suppress the abnormal estrogens, dry-up bleeding sites and keep new sites from forming, so pain may resolves within days.

  • Low doses of nandrolone builds up bone, stabilizing fluctuating hormones of PMS and migraine,  improve libido and reduce depression safely.

  • The FoundTheCURE Protocol has been prescribed for more thirty years successfully. Results vary as no one treatment is effective for  everyone..

  • Even small doses of these meds may improve libido, reduce depression and interfere with conception.


Side-effects are minimized by prescribing spirolactone and natural thyroid.

Endometriosis  Statistics

  • 11% of women between ages 15 and 45 affecting 10 million women worldwide.

  • Number one cause of infertility in women

  • After fibroids, leading cause of  hysterectomy

  • After surgery 100% get adhesions. Pain persists after surgery, albeit it may be less in 50%.

  • 20-40% expect a second operation within 10 years

  • Luprolide acetate/Lupron® cost up to $10,000/yr [1]

  • Thinning bones, vaginal dryness, loss of  libido are common side-effect . Most women discontinue luprolide medication before the second year.

  • Health Care cost are $71 billion/ year in US [2]

  • No new treatment since luprolide released in 1977


This is the most common symptom. Women with endometriosis may have many different kinds of pain. These include:

  • Very painful menstrual cramps. The pain may get worse over time.

  • Chronic (long-term) pain in the lower back and pelvis

  • Pain during or after sex. This is usually described as a "deep" pain and is different from pain felt at the entrance to the vagina when penetration begins.

  • Intestinal pain

  • Painful bowel movements or pain when urinating during menstrual periods. In rare cases, may find blood in your stool or urine.

  • Bleeding or spotting between menstrual periods. This can be caused byother than endometriosis. If it happens often, you should see your doctor.

  • Infertility, or not being able to get pregnant.

  • Stomach (digestive) problems. These include diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea, especially during menstrual periods.

and if the doctors find no endometriosis, then the USDoctor will TREAT with these medications compassionately for TWO MONTHS when indicated.


The recent research shows that flairs of endometriosis are associated with  a 100-fold increase in the nuclear Estrogen Receptor beta.  Previously, the researchers had to have a tissue biopsy. Today, our laboratory is able to do the testing from a venous blood sample on T-lymphocytes.

Danazol (1971) has a 50 year history of effectiveness and now is tested to reduce the estrogen receptor beta.  If the medication is strong enough, then the ER-beta will revert to normal. If not, the disease continues.


Lichten's use of Mixed Androgen Treatment  M.A.T.)- The IRB study is reviewing how the Free Androgen Index (FAI) as the first biomarker of endometriosis relates to the Estrogen Receptor beta/alpha ratio.   Since the most difficult cases of endometriosis have responded to MAT, the study may in the future support treatment  with nandrolone and stanzololol as the MAT protocol suppresses ER-beta. . The Mixed Androgen Therapy protocol  as used to treat endometriosis blocks the environmental xeno-estrogen toxins from penetrating into the cell.  Instead of Estrogen Dominance, the treatment of endometriosis with these medications reset normal cytoplasm anti-inflammatory antibodies.  Related medical conditions  of premenstrual and menstrual conditions can be treated exactly the same: less than $100.00 per month for danazol and less than $400 for M.A.T. 

With the only laboratory in all of America able to perform the ER-beta/alpha assay on both biopsy tissue and venous blood, our intent is to gather the largest database for use in  diagnosis and to predict response to medical therapies.

Sir—during the past two years 30 out of a total of 1264 new patients referred to my general surgical outpatient clinics have previously had abdominal hysterectomy. Pathological examination of the operation specimens in these 30 cases showed that in 12 (of 30) no abnormality of the pelvic organs was found. In the remaining 18, the following lesion were being present: Endometrial or cervical polyp 7; carcinoma of the cervix 5; fibroid uteri 3; ovarian cyst 2, endometriosis 1. The operations have been performed in several hospitals, mostly in N.E. England. In this group of patients, therefore, no pathological lesion was present in 40% of them, and in no further 23% lesions (polyps) which could have been dealt with by conservative surgery were present. In only 7 (of 30) 27% of the cases pathological processes which could not have been removed except by major surgery had been demonstrated. These figures suggest for abdominal hysterectomy and it would be of interest to know if they represent a typical sample. 


Has Anything Changed in 50 years?

FOOTNONE:  L.U.N.A. surgery was invented in 1979 by Dr. Lichten to treat Jody's 7-days of incapacitating pain every month. She has had no pain since then.  Surgery is no longer necessary for most cases of menstrual pain with and without endometriosis because of the Novel Medical Protocol. A comprehensive international review of L.U.N.A. can be found at [9].

FOUND THE CURE medicine is based on the concept that the woman seeking medical care is seeking more than a 'fix' for a 'diseased' female organ.  Not only is there the effects on her mind, body and spirit but endometriosis is an autoimmune disease that affects many other organs.

OUR COMPREHENSIVE SERUM ASSAYS seek out other BIOMARKERS, other signs and symptoms so as to treat the WHOLE WOMAN.

The good news, for both men and women, is that hormone loss and imbalance is easily correctable. Through state-of-the-art diagnostic hormone testing, we can determine your hormone levels and your unique bio-identical hormone needs.


No one treatment is correct for everyone. There are many individuals over the years that all of us have treated but to no avail. It is not our desire or intent to suggest that one treatment is the best. Rather, we propose that those who avail themselves of medical care must first educate themselves and then actively discuss with their health professionals what options are available in their individual medical care:

Our first goal, therefore, must be





Then we can hope to LIVE LONGER & BETTER

in a life style that supports

About Edward Lichten, M.D.

Introduction: Biography of Edward M. Lichten, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.C.O.G.


Edward Lichten is a 70-years 'young' board certified physician who was mentored by the legendary gynecologist Frederick P. Zuspan,  M.D. Professor Emeritus at Ohio State University.  Trained in the most advanced surgery for cancer, Dr. Lichten chose to pursue a search for the medical imbalances that contribute to and cause women's diseases.  The first was Endometriosis.   In 1979 he invented Laparoscopic Uterine Nerve Ablation to offer women with/without visible endometriosis relief from monthly menstrual pain. "Yes, Women's pain is REAL not psychosomatic."[5]


Information: "Anti-aging", Autoimmune and Environmental Disease

Research: Since the 1960's, gynecologists have treated women with the addition of artificial, man  made anti-estrogens  and  man-made progestins to suppress natural estrogen production. Until just 20 years ago, no one connected chronic, autoimmune diseses with imbalances of 'hormones' let alone man-made xeno-estrogens. Even with advances in laparoscopic surgery, more women are suffering with endometriosis at a younger and younger age. Infertility affects one-third of couples in their 30's. There has been no end or way of preventing Endometriosis.  The medications are expensive, create menopause, are depressing and kill sex drive. Used for more than 12 to 24 months is not recommended.

Lichten's Research since the 1980's leads to FOUNDtheCURE:


Dr. Lichten discovered in the early 1980's that there were two components to suppressing endometriosis. He analyzed the workings of a 60-year old pharmaceutical drug for endometriosis, danazol. As a weak androgen, it temporarily reduces the pituitary from stimulating estrogen production from the ovaries. This did dry up the uterine lining and some endometriosis, but it causes acne and facial hair growth. What was unique  is that it suppresses liver production of SHBG.


WITHOUT SUPPRESSING SHBG, long-term treatment of severe endometriosis may be doomed to  fail. There is a high percentage of women with endometriosis who have additional surgery, misery with/ without hormonal replacement and up to 3-10% like Sheri who are told even the most drastic of surgeries may not bring pain relief.




Lichten published in medical journal that two non-surgical diseases of women could be treated effectively with hormones instead of expensive tranquilizers and potentially dangerous medications. His work identified that pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and migraine could be prevented by stabilizing a woman's fluctuating hormone.  For majorities of these women, there were no more Prozac® or Imitrex®; no more uncontrollable mood or raging headaches.

What has been overlooked are the effects of man-made Environmental Hormones! Main stream medical research had failed to consider let alone realize that many chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases are mediated through the hormonal effects of man-made plastics, pesticides, flame retardants, hormonal contraception and hormones fed to livestock! That is why so may diseases are becoming more prevalent today: inflammatory bowel disease, thyroid disease, rheumatoid disease, fibromyalgia, insomnia and just old-fashion aging. We know that a 50-year old's broken bones take longer to heal than a normal 25-year old's. BUT today, 25-year old adults have many signs and symptoms and laboratory findings of 50-year olds!  No wonder they are so sick!


REBALANCING the hormones involves more than adding  back estrogen and testosterone:  she can stay more alert, involved, active and recover faster--LIVING BETTER and LONGER when





Radical Breakthrough is using Testosterone to Treat Men for Disease!
In the 1980's, Dr. Lichten experienced what is now called andropause; 'men'pause for men. Night sweats, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, weight gain and depression became his way of life.  When searching for a hormonal cause, Dr. Lichten discovered that the laboratory blood tests he was running on women in his FOUNDtheCURE PANEL explained the disorder: men were experiencing a men' pause (equivalent to a woman's menopause).  All of his symptoms disappeared and he was able to build muscle tone, mental acuity, and endurance with small doses of natural, bio-idential injectable testosterone (not creams)!


BUT his new found 25-year old energy did not last.  He had to block the SHBG to improve his anabolic potential.

Testosterone Reverses Need for Diabetic Medication:
As his women patients saw the difference testosterone made for Dr. Lichten, they demanded their husbands be seen for the miraculous 'fountain of youth' anabolic hormone treatments. The third man to be seen, Joe. N. was a 295 pound, 5-foot 9-inch male with diabetes. On the mixture of anabolic therapies, he lost 85 pounds in the first year and discontinues all his diabetic medications the first month. Now, 24 years later, Joe. N. is still not clinically diabetic.


The Clinical Research: DIABETES
Buoyed by the anti-diabetic effects of testosterone is a multitude of men, Dr. Lichten enlisted James Sowers, M.D., Professor and Chairman of Endocrinology at Wayne State to co-sponsor a university approved clinical study. The results proved that:

1) all diabetic men are low in testosterone,

2) adding back testosterone would reduce the need for insulin by 50% and oral agents nearly completely, and

3) the men on testosterone did not report any low blood sugar complications.


A large clinical study using the mixture of anabolic steroids is being planned as clinical research from Harvard, England and Switzerland support exactly what Dr. Lichten published to the Internet 24 years ago.

The Clinical Research: CROHN'S DISEASE

Bouyed by reversing pain and weight loss in severe inflammatory bowel disease in post-surgical Crohn's patients, Lichten enlisted Peter Higgins M.D., professor and director of Crohns'/ IBD at the University of  Michigan to co-sponsor studies relating to these sex hormones. He is first going to determine if the total testosterone and SHBG ratio serves as a BIOMARKER for inflammatory bowel disease.  FOUNDtheCURE is offering a parallel COMPASSIONATE STUDY in severe Crohn's patients scheduled for colon resection. 


Putting It All Together:
As the author of the Textbook of Bio-identical Hormones, Dr. Lichten has put together some of the missing pieces that  underlie most chronic disease-- hormone imbalances caused by aging and our environment. These hormone imbalances can be measured directly and indirectly in common laboratory blood tests  (that you will want to have performed before Booking an Appointment). While vitamin D3 deficiency links to insomnia, low growth hormone to fibromyalgia, thyroid to hair loss, fatigue and weight gain, adrenals to afternoon fatigue, pancreas to diabetes and digestion, and the sex hormones of estrogen and testosterone to everything from Alzheimer's to  heart disease, obesity and autoimmune diseases!

Good Health & A Good Life

S.R.  says "Not only was I in constant bowel pain from my residual endometriosis, but, sexual relations were impossible. my pelvic and bowel pains stopped within one week of my first injection. Within a month, I could have sexual relations with my husband-and enjoy them!"

If I  miss my weekly injection, the pain comes back. It is mild compared to what I had when I was at Johns Hopkins.  I can just say the endometriosis does not control my life any more.

"Thank you Dr Lichten."

Colleen L says "I had the most severe menstrual pain in my teens. First the doctors told my mother and I that it was in my head, and then they prescribed birth control pills.  As an adult, I sought out Dr. Lichten who found moderate amounts of  endometriosis at laparoscopy. 





He used the laser to burn away the endometriosis and blocked the nerves causing the severe cramps. Twenty years and after two childbirths and a long-standing marriage, I continue my mixed anabolic injections for energy, sex drive, mental focus and to enjoy my life without physical limits-pain free."

Denice M 54 states "my case was more complicated in that my severe menstrual pain did not recede after childbirth. I started getting severe migraines, premenstrual emotional distress and then, 10 hours before my onset of menstrual flow, a full blown grand mal epileptic seizure.


Dr. Lichten had me see the neurologist and after they were stymied to treat me, he began his foUNDtheCURE protocol. Twenty four years later, I have had no seizures, no pain, no PMS and a husband who can't keep up with  my energy! Thank you Dr. Lichten!"
