I was in medical school and residency, I was taught that estrogen
replacement therapy did not cause weight gain. I was told that for female
patients who are post-menopausal, osteoporosis is inevitable. I was told
that Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) should be recommended for most
women after menopause.
a practicing physician I soon learned that all of that was wrong. Not only
wrong, it was dangerously wrong.
truth came with time, it came with the breakthrough research of Dr. Lee,
it came with treating thousands of women in my own clinic, and with six
years of study, charting and follow-ups.
years I have been actively treating symptoms normally treated with HRT
with Natural Progesterone Cream. This cream I
found relieves many symptoms related to PMS, pre-menopause, menopause,
post-hysterectomy, osteoporosis, breast cancer, infertility, migraines,
acne, skin care, menstrual irregularity and cramps.
Everything that HRT once claimed to do, only without the side-effects.
Natural Progesterone Cream you can replace
the female human hormones with identical hormones in a balanced fashion. I
have been treating women for years in this manner with excellent results.
would any Doctor put women on a regimen of synthetic estrogen or
synthetic progestin for the rest of their lives? Why subject them to
weight gain, increased risk for heart attacks and strokes, not to mention

and breast cancer. This caused a shockwave throughout the medical

Journal of Medicine reported that HRT "had no clinically
meaningful benefits on health-related quality of life"

that taking HRT doubles an older woman's risk of dementia, including,

Hormone replacement therapy is one of the biggest-selling drugs of all
time. HRT still has revenues in the billions.

your Doctor is telling you need to go on HRT or you are currently on HRT
then you need to consult with your Doctor right away and ask him if the
new research changes his recommended treatment for you. Ask him if he has
kept up on the latest research in natural hormone replacement therapy as a
safe alternate to HRT. Get a second opinion.

some of the drug makers providing the drugs for HRT are involved in HRT
related class actions suits, already many major medical centers are
rethinking HRT. It will not get better, it will only get worse.
Educate yourself. Donít be the next victim.
