Hormone Replacement Products

Hormone replacement products are used to help treat the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post-menopause. 

Natural hormone replacement is often referred to as "custom-compounded" hormone products. The doses are individualized, and the mixture of products may not be commercially available.

Synthetic vs Natural Hormone Replacement


What are Synthetic Hormones?

Synthetic hormones have a slightly different chemical structure from the progesterone produced by our bodies. Natural progesterone and synthetic progestins act differently in the body and produce different effects o progesterone receptor sites. Natural progesterone molecules fit EXACTLY into progesterone receptor cells. 

Synthetic hormones have side effects
If you use synthetic hormone replacement, you will likely experience unpleasant side effects. A side effect of synthetic hormones is weight gain, especially around the middle, hips, and thighs (the classic "pear- shaped" weight gain).  

Synthetic hormone replacement via the "patch"
The "patch" contains 100% estradiol which is the most potent of all the estrogens found in the female body. It contains no estrone and no estriol. If you look in the Physician's Desk Reference under listing for the patch which is sold under several brand names, you will see, in large print, the following statement: ESTROGENS HAVE BEEN REPORTED TO INCREASE THE RISK OF ENDOMETRIAL CARCINOMA IN POSTMENOPAUSAL WOMEN. 

There are many other potential HRT side effects of using synthetic hormones including increased heart disease, risk of breast cancer, anxiety, nervousness, and increase hair loss.

Women, educated on the harmful effects of synthetic hormone replacement therapy, are now beginning to realize the great benefits of natural hormone replacement therapy that women in other parts of the world have known for ages.
