Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy BHRT
Purchase the 6-month BHRT program
There is strong opinion that if bioidentical hormone therapy and saliva
testing as we know it today, were available 50 years ago that today there
would be very little endometrial, uterine or breast cancer, certainly not
running rampant it is today. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is
available today and yet many doctors are unaware and still others are
unwilling to alter their medical training and therefore, are very slow to
adapt to new technologies.
The doctors that have used BHRT or natural hormone therapy are doing so by
the seat of their pants; without proper training. They are still utilizing
blood testing, which is incorrect, to determine a woman's hormonal needs and
then they are prescribing a cream, in most cases, that is unpredictable for
its delivery and collects in the muscle and fat over time, and exponentially
increasing the PMS problems.
Blood vs Saliva:
When blood is drawn from a vein, it contains plasma and red and white blood
cells. To analyze the blood, the plasma is separated from the blood cells by
centrifugation. Since the plasma still contains clotting factors, an
anticoagulant is added. This is the plasma used for blood analysis. If the
blood is allowed to coagulate, which is the cell-depleted fluid phase,
devoid of fibrinogen; it is called "serum." The serum may also be used for
analysis. In either case, the blood being analyzed does not contain the red
blood cells that bind the free hormones for the delivery to the receptor
sites. What is being analyzed, with blood, are hormones that are attached to
binding proteins from the liver and are not bio-available.
When hormones are tested via saliva the free hormones are part of the
equation as being present in the body. When the correct BHRT dosage is
established with saliva collected over the course of one month and that
dosage is taken as a sublingual lozenge, they are absorbed into the
bloodstream as "free" hormones. They have not been packaged with a binding
protein by the liver, because the liver did not have access to the hormones.
Most of the "free" hormones are taken up by the red blood cell membranes,
which are not analyzed by a common blood test.
You might ask, "If there are hormones available that are natural to my body,
why do doctors prescribe synthetic hormones?" The explanation involves the
mindset of physicians to traditional pharmaceutical medicine and the
powerful pharmaceutical industry in the United States; as well as politics
The molecule of the natural bioidentical hormone is identical in structure
to the hormone naturally found in the body. Pharmaceutical
cannot patent natural or bio-identical compounds. However, they can patent
chemically altered compounds creating different molecules that are highly
profitable, and often rejected by the body with side effects. A patent on a
man-made product will guarantee that a pharmaceutical company will have an
exclusive right to manufacture and profit from their product. After the
tremendous monetary investment that goes into developing and studying a
pharmaceutical product, it is logical that the pharmaceutical companies
would want their investment protected with an exclusive, patented product.
There would be no huge profits with anything natural, because it is not
patentable. Therefore there is little interest in research of anything
natural and the minimal marketing of natural hormones is from our natural
wellness industry. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is not well
cemented in the psyche of the general public, as a synthetic pharmaceutical
drug is apt to be, due to the huge amount of money spent on advertising to a
public that cannot purchase their drugs.
large part of marketing a drug involves the education and instruction of a
public on features and benefits, as well as to talk about the side effects.
Because when the side effects claim lives, the drug company can state: We
told you it could happen; and be not held accountable. If the cigarette
companies would have offered up the damaging information about what
cigarettes can do to your health, when they first came out, they might not
have had to pay the millions of dollars to families who lost members to lung
Much of what physicians are taught about pharmacologically comes from
pharmaceutical company representatives who visit their offices on occasion;
we refer to them as the pretty young girls who drag the roller bag who get
to the doctor easier than one of his patients. Because pharmaceutical
companies don't manufacture natural hormones, most physicians do not learn
about them, unless they do personal research. Also, change is motivated when
they read the headlines of side effects that someone experienced from a
particular drug they had been prescribing. This formed the basis for most
doctors who are dabbling in the Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The women’s health initiative released the finding of their research study
of synthetic hormones in 2002, and determined that they were causing breast
and uterine cancer. Overnight 13-million women were taken off the synthetic
hormones and most were then prescribed, SSRI’s. Selective Serotonin
Re-uptake Inhibitors like
Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Welbutrin and similar
medications that can destroy your life; these SSRI
antidepressant medications are a serious threat to your life. If you, or
anyone you know, is using one of these medications, please pay close
We have had personal experience with the SSRI medications that some
of our clients were on for a time— enough to convince us that these are

and had little real impact on our client’s life, his doctor passed out
Welbutrin like it was candy to him. It was supposed to be really safe, and
his doctor thought it would give him more pep, among other things. He was
supposed to feel a lot better. He didn't and worse still, he became
despondent and at one point, could not recognize his own wife. This is when
his wife brought him to see us, to offer different suggestions for a
solution to his real problem and to recover from his fog, which he was in
due to these dangerous drugs. To fast forward a little, our client is a
school crossing guard at 78 years of age today, completely recovered and
Back to all natural hormones: Where do these natural hormones come from? The
pure bio-identical (human identical) hormone is extracted from plants, like
wild Mexican yams for example. What is most important is that the end
product is a molecule identical to the hormone molecule found naturally in
the body. This applies to all hormones -- such as thyroid, estrogen,
progesterone, testosterone and DHEA.
The Anti-Aging Clinic must adapt to other procedures as well. Most doctors
are not familiar with Natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and
are slow to acclimate to anything natural. In our natural Wellness Clinic we
must have a doctor sign the prescription, which is formulated by our
compounding pharmacist after he has received the saliva test results and
reviewed our questionnaire we have each client engage in.
We had to face that challenge and educate local doctors, which we intended
to use for the hands on exam required by the FDA to prescribe anything
compounded in a pharmacy, even if it is natural, as is the case with
bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. The way we accomplished that is by
researching and teaming up with compounding Pharmacist’s, Clinical
Nutritionist and a time honored laboratory that processes our 30-day saliva
sample testing. We are among the leaders in research as will as the study of
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with those who teach and have had

This doesn’t mean
that a lot of us don’t feel depressed, or have symptoms that could be
masking depression. It’s normal in today’s society to have such symptoms,
usually related to some kind of stress, emotional and/or physical thing that
can be resolved without pharmaceutical drugs. Some studies have shown that
antidepressants are no more effective in treating this kind of mild
to moderate depression than a placebo. In fact, antidepressants are
contraindicated for short-term treatment of minor depression,
something the drug companies don’t want publicized, offering new reason why
you might try the natural alternative first.
When there is good

estradiol in the follicular phase (usually days three to nine of a menstrual
cycle); progesterone in the luteal phase (days 14 to 28); DHEA; and both

be elevated in the morning to help you get going, lower but steady

After menopause or a
hysterectomy, when your adrenals become the primary hormone factory, some
women’s ratio of DHEA that is converted into testosterone, outweighs what’s
been converted into estrogen and progesterone. This can cause bouts of
increased irritability and unusual body hair growth, especially when DHEA
supplements are taken without tests or follow-ups to monitor hormone levels.
“Free” testosterone is the portion of the hormone that is in your
bloodstream. After menopause, volatile levels of free testosterone may be at
work, which may be the cause of annoying male-pattern facial hair for
women. Most doctors only test total testosterone levels. Adding a DHEA
supplement to this scenario can complicate things.

Bioidentical hormones are natural. They have been manufactured to provide
the same molecular structure as the hormones in your own body. Conversely,
synthetic hormones (Premarin, Prempro and Provera) are not bioidentical to
the body and are manufactured by Big Pharma. They are inventions, often
times slightly altered from something natural because they must be patented.
Natural things can’t be patented. Synthetic hormones are quite strong and
have been proven to cause breast and uterine cancer. If improved diet and
changes of lifestyle, as suggested is your choice, then Bio-identical
hormones should be your choice, which are compounded in a laboratory,
usually from the natural components of yams. This formula produces what
your body produces and has been accustomed to. In contrast, the synthetic
hormone by Big Pharma may switch an (H) that stands for Hydrogen or (OH)

Everyone has normal, sometimes extended bouts of melancholy, or grief,
particularly after a trauma or loss. But pain and anguish aren’t often
talked about. Our culture doesn’t like “people who are down”, so many
of us put on a strong face and start to wonder why we can’t be happy, like
everyone else seems to be.
The truth is that sadness and grief are normal, and “psychotropic drugs”
may interfere with our grieving, or mental processing and may actually be
harmful in many other ways. Your feelings of depression have good reason:
