Facts About Menopausal Hormone Therapy

Brand new! Revised with updated information following NIH’s cessation of the estrogen-alone study. Choosing whether or not to use menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) can be one of the most important health decisions women face as they age. This 24 page brochure summarizes the latest evidence as of Summer 2005 to offer guidance about the risks and benefits of MHT. It is designed to provide patients with information to help them communicate more effectively with their care providers and determine the best course of treatment on an individual basis. This easy to read publication covers such topics as Menopause and Hormone Therapy, Alternatives to Hormone Therapy to Help Prevent Postmenopausal Conditions and Relieve Menopausal Symptoms, Dietary Supplements, and more.

I`m using hormones since 1994 and I`m now 63. I can`t think about something more helpful for me than hormones. I hope that this new trend of trying to persuade women to stop taking the hormones by terrifing them with this new research is not a sign of stoping all the research of what is good for women even if it is not perfect yet. It is neccesary to improve women’s life if we want the family as a unit to roll on. Don`t frighten, go on searching and try improving our life.

A GOOD COMPREHENSIVE KIT FOR WOMEN Although a very good information guideline for the mid-aged woman, the drug therapy for osteoporosis and the various calcium supplements available in regard to their bioavailability profile need to be looked at more deeply.
