Bioidentical Hormones - Life Extension Foundation Report

After a lot of research, I became convinced that I should begin bioidentical hormone hormone therapy. Not only replacing sex hormones (progesterone, testosterone) but I also replace others such as DHEA (brain) and Pregnenolone (precursor to various hormones). The most significant results that I have experienced from restoring diminishing hormones has been sleeping soundly and a 50 point reduction in my cholesterol.

Traditional doctors hold opinions that vary from there isn't a difference in pharmaceutical and compounded hormone products to bioindentical hormone therapy is dangerous (despite the undisputed evidence being that the pharmaceuticals are what was/is causing disease and death in women).

The Life Extension Foundation has done an exhaustive report on the case of women and the use of bioidentical hormone therapy. This is a must read for anyone on pharmaceutical hormones or anyone contemplating hormone therapy. White Paper Authored by the Life Extension Foundation®
