New information about natural replacement hormones offers a safe alternative in the treatment of menopause
-- Includes an appendix of all compounding pharmacies where natural hormones are available
For the first time, women facing the dilemma of whether to use synthetic hormone replacement therapy have an alternative. Best-selling authors Jonathan V. Wright and John Morgenthaler present compelling evidence that natural replacement hormones have all the benefits of standard hormone replacement therapy with drastically lower risk.
Typical hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women involves prescribing synthetic versions of estrogen and progesterone. Although the drugs mimic natural hormones, they don't function in the body exactly as estrogen and progesterone do. In nontechnical language the book explains a woman's hormone cycle, describes various natural hormones, and shows where to find pharmacies that offer natural hormones and the physicians and naturopathic doctors who prescribe them.
