      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      Do alternatives for hormone replacement therapy exist? Yes!
      Available alternatives for hormone replacement therapy are of
      two primary forms - synthetic therapy and natural hormone
      replacement therapy.

      The synthetic hormone replacement therapy drugs are not the
      same as natural hormones that occur in the body. Since
      substances occurring naturally cannot be patented, drug
      companies alter the molecular structure and create new
      substances that are patentable and therefore protected for
      business purposes. Examples are Premarin, Prempro and Provera -
      these synthetic drugs are different in their molecular structure
      from the estrogens and progesterone found in the human body.

      But alternatives for hormone replacement therapy using
      synthetic drugs may not treat your symptoms of menopause
      safely! And the problem with synthetic drugs is - since they
      are different from what occurs naturally in the human body, the
      body treats them differently, and the result is often harmful
      side effects. Synthetic hormone replacement therapy risks may
      exceed the benefits based on numerous clinical trials such as
      the Women's Health Initiative studies!

      On the other hand, natural alternatives for hormone replacement
      therapy use natural estrogen and/or natural progesterone
      hormones. Natural hormones are also referred to as bioidentical
      hormones. Using safer natural alternatives for hormone
      replacement therapy is recommended by numerous physicians since
      the body is able to receive, use and eliminate the natural
      hormones as needed. Most women may not need synthetic drugs
      with related side effects to regain health and eliminate
      symptoms of hormone imbalance.

      The two primary hormones for a woman are estrogen and
      progesterone. Both are needed to function normally and for good
      health. In a healthy woman and normal menstrual cycle, estrogen
      is the main hormone produced for the first 10-12 days following
      the previous menstrual flow. With ovulation, the body begins
      producing progesterone that continues for the next 12 days or
      so. If pregnancy does not occur, estrogen and progesterone
      levels will drop at around day 28 and menstruation begins.
      However, if there is no ovulation, progesterone will not be
      produced by the body that cycle. This event is called an
      annovulatory cycle, and it is happens frequently today for
      women in their thirties and forties - no ovulation and no

      What this means is the woman will be deficient in progesterone
      with an excess of estrogen, which will likely result in
      symptoms of hormone imbalance. Progesterone balances or opposes
      many actions of estrogen. Without suitable progesterone in the
      body, symptoms of hormone imbalance will likely be experienced.
      The symptoms of hormone imbalance can be signs that your body
      isn�t getting the support it needs.

      If the woman has had a hysterectomy, surgical menopause means
      the body produces little or no progesterone, creating hormone
      imbalance. And in postmenopausal women, the production of
      progesterone ceases as ovulation no longer happens. However,
      estrogen production will still be 40 to 60 percent of what it
      once was even after menopause.

      How does a woman know more about appropriate natural
      alternatives for hormone replacement therapy? One way is to
      work with a naturopathic doctor who is schooled and trained in
      both conventional medicine and natural alternative medicine. If
      you are currently on synthetic HRT and want to change to natural
      HRT, you should consult with doctors experienced in the use of
      natural hormone replacement therapy. Naturopathic physicians
      are medical doctors that work to restore and support the body's
      systems by using medicines and techniques that are in harmony
      with natural body processes. A naturopathic physician will
      prefer treatments which keep harmful side effects risks at a

      Another way is to take the online hormone health test provided
      by a leading women's health clinic. The online test takes just
      a few minutes and is free. Find out more about your health,
      symptoms, what the symptoms may be telling you and what to do
      about it based on your answers to important questions. And read
      more about hormone imbalance and physician-recommended natural
      alternatives for hormone replacement therapy.
