Why to prefer BHRT over HRT
For years it was considered natural for women at the age of late forties and early fifties to suffer from symptoms of Menopause. Hot flashes, night sweats, mental fog, irritability, tearfulness, fatigue, poor sleep, loss of sexual desire was considered normal and women were expected to deal with it.
Then, even though human hormones are very simple molecules which could be easily made from such natural sources as soy and wild yams, the pharmaceutical industry created artificial hormones: Premarin from PREgnant MARe urine, Provera and other progesterone-like ( but not progesterone ) substances called progestins and started utilizing them to treat Menopause. Of course, many actions of these medications were somewhat different from hormones that are produced in the human glands and were associated with significant side effects.
Suzanne Summers who was treated with Bio-Identical hormones felt a tremendous difference and became an international advocate for their use. Bio-Identical hormones are called that way because their molecules are identical to hormones that are produced in human glands ( endogenous hormones) and their action is identical to natural human hormones. This is why they are much better tolerated and produce almost no side effects.
