In a recent article published in the Huffington Post dated May 5, 2014, HORMONE REPLACEMT THERAPY MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE, NOT THREATEN IT, it was suggested by Dr. Mehmet Oz, that women should re-consider taking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) because it is believed that it lessens the risk of heart disease.
Though he tells us that Bioidenticals are the new and safe form of HRT, I am still very leery of using any estrogen replacement as so are many other women I speak with.
We researched three different studies done by Mass General, Stonybrook University, and the University of California, a total of 100,000 women were involved in the combined study. ½ of women took HRT and the second half did not. The findings were scary, which also led me to look for alternatives to relieve my menopause symptoms.
