A natural alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy
If you’ve ever researched or considered conventional hormone replacement therapy, you will know that it can be a confusing and controversial treatment. Hormone replacement therapy can be a great option for treating symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post-menopause, but the billion dollar commercial menopause industry can be difficult to navigate and there is certainly not a “one size fits all” treatment. Conventional hormone replacement therapy uses animal and synthetic hormones which are produced in a laboratory and patented by pharmaceutical companies. Over the last few decades, these synthetic hormones have been mass marketed to menopausal women and unfortunately, there is now significant research to show that these treatments have caused many adverse side effects including cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other health issues.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, also known as natural hormone replacement therapy, is a safe and effective alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy which is gradually being adopted by more and more health professionals. Bio-identical hormones are natural hormones which have the exact same molecular structure as the human body’s hormones, and therefore function the same way in the human body. Natural estrogen and progesterone are produced by botanical plants (wild yams, soy) and are processed into either a topical cream or an oral capsule. Natural estrogen and progesterone protect your body from stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. Natural progesterone has also been found to prevent breast cancer, while synthetic progesterone actually promotes cancer.
