Bioidentical Hormones in Women. Dangerous compound or life giving blessing? Orchids behind text

Dr. Kaufman was featured on Dr. Gary Huber’s podcast. They discuss Bioidentical Hormones in Women. Dangerous compound or lifegiving blessing?

While practicing conventional medicine in Boulder, Dr. Kaufman became aware that patients needed and wanted more than what they were receiving from traditional Western Medical healthcare. She observed that while traditional medicine had its role, many of her patients symptoms and issue weren’t being addressed with this approach. She pursued the idea of functional or integrative medicine and then completed fellowship training with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine where she honed her skills using bioidentical hormones.

We will be discussing:

1. Bioidentical hormones do NOT increase breast cancer risk. If estrogen causes breast cancer then why don’t 25 year women, bubbling with estrogen get breast cancer?

2. VAGUE language creates confusion – HORMONES – ESTROGEN. We discuss the actual names of bioidentical hormones such as estradiol and distinguish it from drugs such as birth control pills or Premarin.

3. Birth control pills, Premarin and Provera are not hormones. They are drugs. Drugs are useful but dangerous and are never a part of “Bioidentical hormone replacement”.

4. Bioidentical means it is identical to the hormones you have made your whole life and need forever if you intend on having a vital life.

5. Top 4 benefits derived from using BHRT:

  • Reduce risk of heart attack by 50%.
  • Brain protective and reduces risk of Alzheimer’s by 30-60%.
  • Bones stronger and reduced risk of osteoporosis. BEST first line treatment for bone density.
  • Longevity: mice studies show 19% increase in lifespan.

6. Why doesn’t my OB/GYN offer BHRT? Hormones are not “drugs” so it is not taught in traditional western medicine. The vast majority of OB/GYN physicians know next to nothing about true bioidentical hormones or how to use them.
