Many women are confused about the treatments available for menopause. While they may be experiencing severe symptoms, the news about Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) use is not encouraging. HRT may increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, breast cancer, and blood clots in the lungs and legs. On the other hand, there is lesser known treatment-Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)-that can help effectively diminish menopausal symptoms without the dangers of synthetic drugs. In her new book, Dr. Amy Lee Hawkins provides women with a complete guide to understanding and using BHRT to diminish or eliminate the symptoms of menopause.
