As hormone replacement therapy rises in popularity, Biovive Medicine will open a new location on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado, to make it easier to serve their growing practice, it was reported July 9th. Kane Lai, MD of Biovive Medicine, commented, “Hormone imbalance can cause a variety of issues such as diminished sex drive, increased belly fat, foggy concentration, memory lapses, night sweats, hot flashes, depression, and increased mood swings. Sadly, hormonal imbalance can even take away the energy and motivation to do anything about addressing these issues.” He added that he expects to expand service hours and days when more residents of the Boulder area learn why bioidentical hormone therapy has become Americans’ preferred method for treating these conditions.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored whether natural therapies may be more effective than hormone replacement therapy. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “Many women who are going through the menopause are put off the idea of having Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). HRT has apparently been linked with a variety of other health concerns such as heart disease, stroke and breast cancer, and so many women feel concerned about the risks of the therapy and look to natural herbal alternatives.” (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/02/hormone-replacement-therapy-or-natural-remedies-whats-better/#sthash.Xg9mSWSW.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine explained that while HRT may not carry the huge levels of risk that were first associated with it, there are also increasing numbers of natural remedies available to women, all claiming to be able to combat the range of unpleasant symptoms of menopause. However, Yourwellness Magazine noted that few of these remedies available have been properly studied, and although there is some promising research around red clover and black cohosh, these are not seen to be as beneficial as HRT.
