Natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT and natural bio identical hormones can not be patented by the drug companies and they have identical molecular structures to the hormones made by the human body.

Natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and a natural bio identical hormone used in moderation and in the quantities that Dr. John R. Lee recommends, are the best option for women with premenopause symptoms and hormone imbalance.
You may wonder why the drug companies create synthetic hormones for menopause, when menopause is not a disease but…a natural part of a woman’s life cycle…
So why do they provide us drugs that have side effects when bio identical hormones have been around for 30 years?
Making a profit is a major objective for the pharmaceutical industry and the medical profession… and there are millions of women worldwide reaching menopause or premenopause that need help dealing with hormone imbalance.
When these women go to their doctors, they frequently are prescribed various drugs that give them other health issues. One must remember that synthetic drugs are patented, which means the molecular structure has been altered because natural structures can’t be patented and they are not the same as the human body makes.
