Hormone therapy, like food products, comes in the “natural” variety and also a “modified” version, better known as synthetic. Just as GMO modified foods have potential for harm in our bodies, synthetic hormones have potential harm associated with using them in our bodies, while the “natural” or better called bio-identical hormones have a safety and benefit record for long term health and wellness!
