Benefites of BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
In November 2009, researchers reported the results of a controlled statistical analysis of 16,000 women using ?hormone? replacement therapy. All of the women were post-menopausal but under 60 years of age. The analysis covered 19 trials of at least six months duration each, done between 1966 and 2008.
It should be mentioned that these research trials didn’t use BHRT. In fact, each and every one used horse estrogen, and (in most of them) ?progestin.? So how can this analysis possibly tell us anything about BHRT and longevity if none of the studies involved actually used BHRT?
It all goes back to one of the basic ?laws of Nature & Creation?: Molecules evolved or created to function in our bodies will always do better than inexact copies of those same molecules. For example, real arms work better than artificial arms, real teeth better than false teeth, etc. And the same holds true for hormones. Bio-identical estradiol, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone simply work better than equilin, medroxyprogesterone, and methyltetosterone.
So we can look at the outcome of this ?HRT and longevity? analysis, and confidently predict that BHRT will do even better.
Here’s what the authors of this analysis found: The overall mortality for women using HRT decreased by 28 percent compared with non-HRT users.
If synthetic HRT can give post-menopausal women under 60 a 28 percent lower risk of dying, just imagine what real BHRT can do. There’s no reason we can’t expect at least 29 percent. But, more likely, it could decrease mortality risk in women by as much as 50 percent in the under-60 age group?and at the very least, cut risk by 40 percent among women under 70.
Certainly, mortality will always be 100 percent eventually. But with BHRT added to your other ?healthy living? habits, you?re much more likely to see not only your grandchildren but even your great-great grandchildren!

NOTE: I have been using bioidentical testosterone and progersterone for about 8 years. My blood levels were tested and found to be “low normal”. Currently they are at optimum levels and I have maintained these levels ever since.
