    Natural hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is also known as bioidentical hormone therapy.  It utilizes estradiol, progesterone or testosterone that are identical in structure to hormones found in a woman’s body. Some women mistakenly think natural hormones are only available as compounded hormones.  On the contrary, natural hormones are readily available as pharmaceutical medications and meet higher standards of effectiveness.
