Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy or “ HRT “ is best exemplified by the commercial drug Prempro.  Prempro is a combination drug that has both manmade estrogens and a progestin.  The estrogens are derived from the urine from pregnant mares and the progestin is medroxyprogesterone, a synthetic hormone not found in nature. Plus, doctors are still utilizing blood testing, which is incorrect, to determine a woman’s hormonal needs.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or "BHRT" or natural hormone therapy, along with saliva testing, which is the only method of accurately determining what the balance and imbalance of any females endocrin system is. When the correct BHRT dosage is established with saliva collected over the course of one month and that dosage is taken as a sublingual lozenge, they are absorbed into the bloodstream as “free” hormones. They have not been packaged with a binding protein by the liver, because the liver did not have access to the hormones. Most of the “free” hormones are taken up by the red blood cell membranes, which are not analyzed by a common blood test.
