Women's Fountain of Youth

While it is unfortunate that bioidentical hormones have been the source of lots of controversy, they are exactly what we all need to stay healthy and in balance.
The problem is that the name “bioidentical hormones” was brought to us by a TV personality who isn’t a doctor, and she made it sound like she had discovered something new.
This led to the conventional world digging in its heels and saying “bioidentical” was a marketing term, which is true, and that you can only get them from a compounding pharmacy, which is not what “Big Pharma” wants you to do.
Bioidentical hormones are not new and are available outside a compounding pharmacy. They have been around for more than 50 years, including before the pregnant mare’s urine hormones were created. They are safe and work well because they are molecularly identical to the hormones our own bodies make when we are young, sexy, and healthy.
They are exactly what we need. To figure out your dosing, you have to have a blood, not saliva test. Saliva testing shows you nothing and is used because you don’t need a doctor’s order to get it.
Bioidentical hormones are available in compounded forms, creams, gels, tablets, etc., in doses specific to your needs, but they also are available FDA-approved and prepackaged at the local drugstore.
All you need for either form is a prescription.
Don’t get the prescription from just anyone. Make sure it comes from a doctor who has been trained in how to use bioidentical hormones in people like you — I mean a doctor who has successfully taken care of at least 300 women.
Ask your friends whom they see. This is the time to change the way you look at your healthcare. Focus on prevention and avoid the conventional cookie-cutter, disease-focused care.
We frequently see data and research, including calls from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, recommending fewer tests, including the Pap and mammograms, no annual physicals, and generally favoring minimal invasive treatment of our bodies and more kind, intelligent approaches to disease prevention and healthy aging.
Maybe it’s time to listen to this message and stop running from doctor to doctor, test to test, looking for the disease that will kill us.
Something eventually will, but wouldn’t it be nice to leave with an intact body and enjoying every minute of our lives without worry? With the help of bioidentical hormones and a partner for a doctor, you certainly can.
