Why Women Are Suffering Through Menopause

When a woman complains of hot flashes or insomnia due to ‘the change’, it makes most wonder why they haven’t began taking hormone replacements such as Estrogen. Well, women used to take their estrogen happily until the Spring of 2003 when the Women’s Health Initiative study came out stating that hormones caused an increased risk of heart attacks, stroke, breast cancer and dementia. Overnight, women stopped their hormones and few to no doctors offered them alternatives or explanations.

The problem with the study, which is now understood, is that it was based on risky synthetic hormones such as Premarin and Provera being used together. Despite counter-studies proving that women benefit from hormone replacement therapy, the safest and actually best form is bio-identical hormones.

Natural estrogen and natural progesterone have never been the culprits of the above mentioned problems. In truth, natural hormones actually improve a woman’s quality of life and health in addition to relieving her of hot flashes.

Even with this information being known through a number of studies, women still skirt the issue of hormone replacement due to their fear and the fact their doctor hasn’t taken the time to properly educate them of the new findings. If you are still not feeling your best as a woman, and want more information about bio-idential hormone replacement, connect with a specialist in this arena. Learn how bio-identicals can truly better a woman’s life, while also providing health benefits in the short and long term.
