Petaluma, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
Smart Publications announces the updated and expanded version of Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained, the groundbreaking book on the benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) by pioneering medical advocates of BHRT, natural medicine physician Jonathan V Wright, MD, and medical writer, Lane Lenard, PhD. The latest edition includes a foreword by Suzanne Somers, herself a patient of Dr. Wright.
The authors have also launched a free online hormone self-assessment test to give people an approximate idea of their need (or not) for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
It’s been more than a decade since Drs. Wright and Lenard first wrote about natural hormones (in their book Natural Hormone Replacement for Women Over 45) as a way to diminish the signs of aging, provide relief from menopause symptoms, and even prevent diseases like osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease. At the time, few doctors had even heard about the use of BHRT as an alternative to synthetic hormones and conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), let alone knew any of the life-preserving benefits of BHRT.
Since the premature termination in 2002 of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI), a large, government-funded study, that confirmed the many health risks associated with conventional HRT, the conversation about hormones has changed. With the help of anti-aging guru Suzanne Somers and other BHRT advocates, what we now have in doctors’ offices across the U.S. in 2012 are millions of women demanding more information and access to BHRT.
While more and more doctors are on board with the latest research showing BHRT as a natural, safe form of hormone replacement, we still have a long way to go. Equally disappointing is the fact that mainstream media outlets continue to report about BHRT in a way that is distorted, confusing, and many times, downright wrong.
To set the record straight, the updated Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, presents up-to-date information on the topic of BHRT, including the wealth of research that shows the safety and efficacy of bio-identical hormones. The book tackles head on the cancer-causing effects of conventional HRT and makes a solid argument in favor of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to reduce cancer risk and prevent cancer.
At the heart of the book is the concept that taking bio-identical versions of three human estrogen hormones—estriol, estradiol, and estrone—along with bio-identical progesterone, in customized and balanced dosages, can allow a postmenopausal woman to feel better, protect her body from disease, and retain her youthful look and feeling.
The doctors explain how to get the most out of bio-identical hormone replacement by recommending various tests to measure hormone levels in the body. They also spend time explaining what they call the “triad” relationship between you, your BHRT doctor, and a competent compounding pharmacist. They detail how to identify a doctor who specializes in BHRT and provide information to help the reader find a compounding pharmacy that can create their customized bio-identical hormone replacement prescription.
What Others Are Saying
“This book explains the difference between natural hormones and man-made hormones. It is the man-made hormones that have been proven dangerous, but in this book you will see the studies and scientific backup that prove the efficacy and joys of replacing natural hormones with real, bio-identical hormones that have been lost through the aging process or from the stress of today’s hectic lifestyles.” -- Suzanne Somers, from her foreword in Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained
