There has been alot of media attention lately educating consumers about menopause and bioidentical hormones, including the series every Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Show, setting the record straight about how much they can help women. But it is very important to understand the types of bioidenticals available including static and rhythmic cycling, otherwise known as biomimetic dosing, versus synthetic hormones.

Synthetic hormones used in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) back in the early part of this century scared women and doctors alike. Natural hormone replacement,not synthetic drugs with hormone-like effects, has not been proven to cause cancer. If estrogen and progesterone, or even testosterone, caused cancer, young women would be dead. IF this logic tells us estrogen doesn't actually cause cancer in and of itself, then there must be more to the story.

Synthetic drugs with hormone-like effects, however, may not be the answer. The solution may involve the kind of estrogen, how much of it and when to take it. Currently many people believe that a hormone is natural if it is found in nature or created in a lab and it is chemically identical to the hormone in the body. Just note that if the substance or structure is changed in a laboratory, then it becomes a synthetic hormone. This may trigger the activity of hormone receptors produced in the body - alluding to a natural occurring result, however, synthetics differ not only in structure but also in the synergistic actions they have on the mechanisms of the human body.

Rhythmic cycling bioidentical hormones have recently been introduced to mimic the hormone levels of a young woman. This means that this type of bioidentical hormone replacement matches the natural high and low states of the menstrual cycle in a healthy female woman, so even women who have gone through menopause will get their menstrual cycles (periods) again, just like they did prior to the onset of menopause.

All of the other bioidenticals are static and not dosed via rhythmic cycling. Once your blood levels are tested, you can ask your doctor to tell you more about bioidentical hormones.

Tens of thousands of women are now on the rhythmic cycling bioidentical hormone protocol including celebrity-author Suzanne Somers, who first wrote about them in her book "Ageless." These women's testimonials prove that almost ALL of their menopausal symptoms are gone -- not just a select few. Meaning hot flashes, brain fog, dry skin, sleeplessness, and loss of interest in sex, etc.

When one searches the Internet for "bioidentical hormone replacement therapy," you will find interviews with women who have found them to be successful, and read or listen to a number of medical doctor's opinions about this special kind of bioidentical hormone therapy in Internet podcasts.
