“ The bioidentical hormone debate: are bioidentical hormones (estradiol, estriol and progesterone) safer or more efficacious than commonly used synthetic versions in hormone replacement therapy?”
Review of published papers and data
Data and clinical outcomes demonstrated that bioidentical hormones are associated with lower risks, including risk of breast cancer and CVD, and are more efficacious than the synthetic and animal derived counterparts.
What hormones are involved in the hormone therapy I recommend?
Thyroid hormones (TSH, T3 and T4)
Adrenal hormones (cortisol, pregnenolone, DHEA-S)
Ovarian hormones for women (estradiol, estriol, testosterone)
