Book Review from The Perimenopause Blog by Magnolia Millier

Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained by Dr. Jonathan V. Wright & Lane Lenard, PhD. with a foreword by Suzanne Somers.

First of all, I want to give kudos to Suzanne Somers. Yeah, I know, we all remember her as the ditzy blonde, Chrissie on Three's Company all those years ago and maybe some of you even remember her Thigh Master days. Cheesy, I know.

But you have to give the girl props for bringing A LOT of attention to bio-identical hormones. I know she's not the first person nor even the pioneer, but she has put a face on bio-identicals and for that, she deserves credit in my opinion.

In Suzanne's foreword, she reminds us once again that knowledge is power. I couldn't agree more. I have beat the drum since I've been blogging about women's issues, on how important it is to have good information and knowledge to make informed decisions.

Dr. Wright's book, Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained women can get more knowledge and information and do just that.

Dr. Wright lays out the case for bio-iodentical hormones with over 40 years of research, in which he cites his sources and medical case studies. As a medical doctor, Dr. Wright's work is based in real medical science and research and not bogus junk-science, as those who are opposed to bio-identicals would have you to believe.

In his preface, Dr.

Best book yet on BHRT. Most comprehensive that I have read. A must have for perimenopause and beyond. I thought I knew it all since I read many other books and felt that I was really almost there in my replacement quest, but this book is written by the doctor who started it and it is by far the most comprehensive. The cover and title are kinda gimmicky (I think it's to catch your eye and get you to buy it) but the content is phenomenal and is extremely informative. If you want a book by a real expert with extensive tips and knowledge, this is the one!

Have you lost any friends to breast cancer? Worried you might be next? Has your doctor offered to prescribe Premarin or Fosamax for the issues plaguing you before, during or after menopause ... but you're wondering about the risks? Want to look and feel your best as you age? Tired of traditional medicine and pharmaceuticals with their detrimental side effects and risks? BHRT to the rescue!

Women (and men) have been searching for the fountain of youth for eons and, except for the ancient Chinese, in all the wrong places. Have you ever heard that if you take in too many vitamins, you urinate them out? Well, as it turns out, the secret to youth is found in the urine of our young people. People urinate out lots of good stuff, including hormones, vitamins, minerals, and so on. Way back in the 11th century, medieval Chinese scientists and chemists had no way of knowing any of the individual hormones, but guessed that all of the substances that "power" the human body are found in human urine. Today's scientists have found that human urine actually does contain every hormone known to be secreted by the human body, and a wide variety of minerals too. Many of you are probably disgusted right now, but remember ... since the 60's millions of women have been taking Premarin, pills containing hormones concentrated from pregnant mare's urine. Which do you think would copy nature better ... human urine or horse urine?

Dr. Wright suggests that in order for modern BHRT to catch up with "comprehensive medieval Chinese BHRT", we process human urine. And if we do so, we could end the financial woes of many school districts and universities across the United States.

In 1997, physicians were happily writing millions of prescriptions for Wyeth Pharmaceutical's Premarin®. A prophet crying in the wilderness, Dr. Wright wrote the definitive book on bio-identical hormone replacement, Natural Hormone Replacement for Women Over 45. In 2002 the large research study, The Women's Health Initiative, terminated the study because it found that Prempro® (Wyeth's estrogen made from pregnant mare urine and progesterone created in the lab) increased the incidence of breast cancer increase 26% and instead of reducing heart disease as previously believed, increased the incidence of heart disease. Further, it increased the incidence of dementia. Premarin® and Prempro® prescriptions plummeted. Despite fierce opposition by the pharmaceutical industry, bio-identical hormone replacement has been increasing in popularity. In Dec. 2009 Dr. Wright and Dr. Leonard wrote the currently definitive book on the subject, Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement: The Science Explained.

Iconoclast Dr. Jonathan Wright is a remarkable pioneer. He saw the light when others didn't know to look for it. He fought the drug companies and medical establishment at considerable personal cost. Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, presents the research data on bio-identical hormone replacement and how it fosters good health and reduces the risk to cancer, heart disease, and dementia.

He discusses the importance of a full health assessment, testing several of the types of estrogen and testing progesterone and testosterone levels before supplementing. Testing also needs to be done periodically to measure whether the hormones are at optimal levels.
