Another Shift in the Hormone Therapy Debate

Statements for Numerous Major Medical Organizations Further Establish the Benefits of HRT

March, 2013 - The iconic hormone replacement therapy (HRT) study, the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), has long cast a dark shadow over women suffering from menopause and the physicians hoping to offer these women relief. This week, those shadows are falling away, as once again, new, advanced research shows the benefits of HRT outweigh the risks for menopausal women.

The physicians of the BodyLogicMD network have helped thousands of women find relief from the woes of menopause and other conditions of aging, over the last ten years and are delighted at the outpour of evidence and support for this life-changing treatment. Dr. Jen Landa, Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD and the voice of the network of physicians specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy reacted to this good news, “The benefits of HRT have changed the lives of many women suffering from symptoms of menopause and the new research will open the doors for many more women. When a woman has all the facts, they can make an informed decision for the betterment of their health and quality of life.”

The International Menopause Society, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Asia Pacific Menopause Federation, The Endocrine Society, the European Menopause and Andropause Society, The International Osteoporosis Foundation and The North American Menopause Society, just to name a few, are endorsing the benefits of HRT.

Tobie de Villers, President of the International Menopause Society, shared that when used properly, HRT will offer more benefit than harm. The breakthrough result from this study is moderation - the increased risk of breast cancer that frightened both physicians and women, has been found to diminish a couple of years after hormone treatments are stopped. In light of these results, The National Institute of Health is encouraging women to begin the hormone therapy journey with a medical expert to ensure safety.

The physicians of the BodyLogicMD network treat symptoms of menopause and andropause with all-natural bioidentical hormone therapy. Every treatment plan begins with extensive lab testing to determine the specific needs of each patient and is then designed to treat or prevent hormone imbalances that contribute to aging and disease.
