Could I get some information on natural hormone replacement?

Could I get some information on natural hormone replacement?

See below: Could I get some information on natural hormone replacement? Natural hormone therapy consists of replacing hormone deficiencies within your body with bio identical hormones. This implies that the hormones your taking into your body have a very similar chemical structure to the hormones that are already present in your body. Bioidentical hormones are traditionally given in a cream base and absorbed through the skin. Depending on what base they're put into most are absorbed in somewhere between 15 and 45 seconds. The advantage of absorbing through the skin is that they don't have to pass through the liver at which time some of the compound will be broken down and not be able to be utilized by the body. Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, which has been associated with a multiplicity of problems, that is not the case for natural hormone therapy. See the women's health initiative study for additional information on traditional hormone replacement therapy. We have been using natural hormone therapy consistently in our office for the past 18 years with very impressive results. We use a questionnaire and saliva testing to first identify the status of the patient's hormone balance. Once we've identified the patient's hormonal status we use bio identical hormones to get the well-deserved balance. Many of the symptoms that women often take as normal such as menstrual cramping, heavy menstruation, irritability during the time of their menstruation, hot flashes and night sweats are not normal and can be significantly improved upon with natural hormone therapy.
