Erika Schwartz MD Congratulates Oprah Winfrey for Spotlighting Bioidentical Hormones
Date:1/15/2009

For now, she says: "Let's just celebrate the fact that bioidentical hormones are coming out and are finally being considered as viable treatments for feeling lousy. No longer are we hearing that bioidenticals are just a marketing term. Now that is progress!

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2009 -- Today is a big day for women's health and bioidentical hormones, says Erika Schwartz MD in her latest blog at www.derika.com.

For the first time, she says, mainstream media is acknowledging that women are suffering unnecessarily and that hormone imbalance is an overwhelming handicap that needs attention and legitimate treatments. It can no longer be swept under the rug.

Dr. Erika notes it took someone like Oprah Winfrey, who is suffering from inadequately treated thyroid problems, menopausal hormone loss and its attendant weight gain to blast the hinges off the door to bioidentical hormone therapy.

Acknowledgement is always the precursor to enlightenment, she adds.

Dr. Erika says she hopes Oprah will consider bioidenticals an important ingredient in her commitment to achieving true wellness.

For now, she says: "Let's just celebrate the fact that bioidentical hormones are coming out and are finally being considered as viable treatments for feeling lousy. No longer are we hearing that bioidenticals are just a marketing term. Now that is progress!

"The next step involves educating the medical community about the existence of bioidenticals, providing them with the studies about them, teaching them the difference between how bioidenticals and non-identical hormone molecules work in the human body and making sure they know that bioidenticals are FDA approved and available at your local drugstore."

Dr. Erika says doctors also need to understand the role and usefulness of compounding pharmacies and get involved with who compounds the hormones they prescribe.

Finally, Dr. Erika says, balanced and honest studies must be undertaken on a large scale and in full view that compare the efficacy and safety of bioidenticals to their non-identical counterparts. The era of creating confusion and muddying the waters of hormone therapies has reached its end.
