What makes Natural Hormones different from other treatments available?
Dr. Davenport prescribes natural hormones, which are the same chemical structure as our bodies naturally produce. The hormones are estriol, estradiol, estrone, progestrone and testosterone among others. The source of the precursor molecule is the wild yam (Diascorea composita) and this is converted by biochemist to the exact molecules found in the human body. Certainly it seems unreasonable to indict all hormones based on studies specially using premarin and provera. There are several scientific observations suggesting provera is far from the ideal progestin. Suggested Reading: Natural Hormone Replacement for Women Over 45 by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D.
