The Truth About Hormone Therapy – The Wall Street Journal Gets It Right!
Good Afternoon Ladies,
First off, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Stefani N., and I’m a friend of Judy’s. She’s still not feeling quite up to blogging yet, so she’s asked me to step in and post on her behalf for a little while. Judy is determined to keep her blog going because of the powerful impact she’s been able to have in educating women about their choices and also the opportunity to spread the good word about bioidenticals. Most importantly, she wants make sure that we have a forum to talk about going through all of this menopause and hormone therapy stuff because we need each other to discuss and understand what others cannot. Hopefully Judy will take over again soon, but in the mean time I will try to fill these great big shoes! We all know that there’s only one Judy!
I will tell you my own story in time, but today I want to mention an article I came across in the Wall Street Journal titled The Truth About Hormone Therapy written by Dr. Erika Schwartz, Dr. Kent Holtorf and Dr. David Brownstein. This trio founded the Bioidentical Hormone Initiative, a non-profit group of physicians devoted to patient and physician education regarding natural bioidentical hormones.
Propaganda spread by misinformed doctors, pharmaceutical companies and those profiting from pharmaceutical companies has created confusion and argument where there should be none. The result is that thousands upon thousands of women are left too afraid to seek natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. It’s a crime! I know many of you, like Judy and me have experienced tremendous relief thanks to this treatment and watching lies spread about its supposed ‘questionable safety’ has been beyond frustrating.
I’m glad to see that some educated doctors have taken up the cause and are, like us, trying to clear this muck surrounding bioidentical hormones as a treatment for menopause.
