What Women Need to Know About Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause

June 30, 2020

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause

So you’re officially in menopause and now you have to decide how to treat your hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, sleepless nights, fatigue and low libido. You’re bombarded with TV commercials and magazine and internet ads talking about Premarin, antidepressants, osteoporosis drugs, and sleep medications, but which solution should you choose?

Some of the ladies you know take Premarin, and others are on bioidentical hormones. How do you know which is best? It is critical that you are informed about the types of hormone replacement therapy that are available, because your health and quality of life depend upon it.

Bioidentical vs. Counterfeit Hormones

As far as hormone replacement goes, you have two options: hormone replacement that uses hormones identical to what your body makes, or hormone replacement that uses counterfeit hormones that are not the same as what your body makes.

Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones produced by your body – exactly the same. For this reason, they cannot be patented by the pharmaceutical companies.

Counterfeit hormones are not identical to the hormones made by your body, therefore they can be patented by the pharmaceutical companies for profit.

Solutions Offered by Conventional Doctors

Conventional doctors will typically offer synthetic hormone drugs such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera as menopause treatment. These counterfeit hormones have been shown to have numerous negative side effects, including increased risk of blood clots, stroke and heart disease, as well as breast cancer. This is conventional medicine’s solution for menopause, but is it worth the risk? We don’t think so.

Before you decide on your menopause treatment, take a look at the dangers of these counterfeit hormones:

Premarin – Premarin is made of horse estrogens derived from pregnant mare urine, hence the name, “Pre-mar-in”. It contains numerous potent horse estrogens that are not found in humans.

Provera – Provera contains medroxyprogesterone, which is a progestin, not progesterone. It is a progestin, a drug that exists nowhere in nature.

Prempro – A combination of Premarin and Provera.

The Right Solution: Bioidentical Hormones

The fact that our bodies recognize bioidentical hormones as their own is significant to you since you want to stay healthy and well for as long as possible. Just as a key fits perfectly into the right keyhole, bioidentical hormones do the same in your cells. Only bioidentical hormones can help achieve the above goal of resolving your symptoms due to their similarity to your own hormone structure.

Research shows that hormonal decline is associated with loss of body function and increase in disease. Studies demonstrate that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve sleep, fatigue, mood, cognitive function, bone mass, sexual function, muscle strength and body composition, and decrease inflammation.

It makes no sense to prescribe a drug to treat a symptom of an underlying hormone deficiency when the deficiency itself is so easily remedied by replacing the natural hormone.

We Can Help

The right solution is simple. The best option for menopause treatment is to replenish the estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that your body is missing with bioidentical hormones which are identical to the hormones made by the human body. Why take a risk with synthetic hormones that can harm your health?

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
