Your confusion about Synthetic hormone replacement and Bio-identical hormone replacement ends here.
The hormones Premarin, Prempro and Provera are all synthetic and they do not occur in nature. The hormone structure is different from that of the hormones produced and naturally made in the human body. None of our estrogens are compatible with these horse estrogens.
Is it true that Premarin is made out of horse’s urine?
Yes Estrogen-replacement drug Premarin, prescribed to menopausal women, is made from horse urine; in fact, the drug’s name is short for PREgnant MARes’ urINe.
About 700,000 mares are impregnated each year for the sole purpose of collecting their estrogen-rich urine.
These poor mares are tied in small stalls, unable to move either backwards, forwards, or sideways or lie down comfortably, they stand with sacks strapped to their groins for months on end. In order to make the urine more concentrated, their water intake is restricted, so the horses are constantly thirsty.
The foals are considered “by-products,” and most are fattened up, slaughtered, and sold for horse-meat or turned into dog food. If this senseless cruelty isn’t enough to turn you off these types of hormones, read on as Knowledge is power for the anti-ageing woman. I don’t know about you but I would rather ride a horse than put its urine into my body?
Studies (Women’s Health Initiative 2002) have been proven that synthetic hormone replacement can cause cancer in women. So what did the pharmaceutical companies do when this study came out… they put a cancer warning on the labels. This is so typical of the billion dollar pharmaceutical industry where they are know to put money above your health.
Knowing this information, why does my doctor prescribe them to me as treatment for my peri-menopause or menopause symptoms?
Most allopathic G.P doctors are educated by pharmaceutical companies funding and this type of hormone replacement is all that they learn. Also as I mentioned above, synthetic hormone replacement is worth billions of dollars for the pharmaceutical industry so they are not going to stop its use. It’s up to you to educate yourself as “knowledge will secure your body’s future health“. Enter… Bio- identical Hormone Replacement a proven winner in every way.
Are Bio-Identical Hormones Natural?
Bio-identical hormones are made from plant extracts which are all natural products. They are then synthesized in a lab to exactly replicate our human hormones. You are replacing what you’re younger once made. Countless of studies have shown, that many women reap the benefits of this life changing natural treatment. The hormones can only be prescribed by a doctor, who is experienced in bio-identical hormone replacement. It’s definitely the better alternative when it comes to hormone replacement therapy.
Now that you have the knowledge of this information, it will give you the power to make the right decision when it comes to the health of your body. Not only will you get relief from peri-menopause and menopause symptoms but you will be enjoying better health and wellbeing. In my opinion Synthetic loses here and natural is the winner by far, don’t to think?
