In U.S., No Comeback Seen for Hormone Therapy

This article from Health Day is all over the Internet right now, but if you read it closely you will see that it is talking about conventional hormone replacement therapy and NOT bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. I have seen a huge increase in interest in bioidentical hormones over the three years I have been taking BHRT myself (and became more aware of the news coverage). The news that Wyeth was paying ghostwriters to supply medical journals with articles supporting the efficacy and safety of Premarin (you know, pregnant mare's urine) certainly does not help the cause of hormonal health/balance ----- but I am confident that we as consumers, as we continue to demand better peri/menopausal health care, more physicians will see the benefits of replacing hormonal balance over stuffing patients full of medications. Hang in there ladies, we are making a difference, and I bless all of you daily for your support!
