After the business deals that corrupted the results of the 1993-1998 study, Hormone Replacement Therapy lost the trust of many people, especially women. Yet, now with new and improved medicines and methods of administration available, HRT is beginning to rise in the medical world once again.
This is important because hormones are the strongest chemicals in our bodies and should never be taken lightly or allowed to run wild. A hormonal imbalance can easily ruin the life of the person that it is affecting, causing mood swings, weight gain, depression or even cancer. Women are the most affected by hormones and have to deal with regular hormonal imbalances, between puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth, regular periods and finally menopause, women have a constant battle against their hormones. This is why it is important that Women’s Hormone Replacement Therapy has come a long way and still continues to progress.
The past saw a HRT treatment made out of Premarin, pregnant horse urine, which was discovered, and reported, to cause an increase in heart disease. This, along with the route of administration (oral), was questioned by some but largely ignored by the mainstream medical world, especially in America. Even now, Premarin is the second most prescribed drug in Female Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Nonetheless and thanks to new research and uncorrupted studies, new HRT drugs are coming into the forefront. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a new method of HRT that uses an man-made, yet molecule for molecule, identical match of your needed hormones to treat your imbalances. Diosgenin, which is extracted from Mexican yams and soy, is transformed into the hormone that the patient needs because, unfortunately, the body cannot do this on its own.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is safer than natural hormone therapy because while there are 15 different definitions for the word natural, none apply accurately to hormones, effectively rendering the word natural worthless when discussing hormones and effective HRT treatments. It is also safer than oral administration, which can cause an increase triglyceride levels, C-Reactive protein and prohypertensive and pro-thrombotic factors that are the burdens of portal absorption and first-pass liver impact, because this method is administered through the abdomen or hip fat of the patient and will dissolve in approximately two months.
