I had the opportunity to chat with Dr. Erika Schwartz recently about Bio Identical Hormone Therapy last year and today here on Fox she’s again talking about the same issues and there Bio identical drugs can help, FDA approved drugs. Check out the interview and you can see that what we talked about a year and a half ago is still as status quo with not many changes here.
She is concerned that Premarin and Prempro is still be given to women an discussed the Women’s Health Initiative and what it did do and what it has not done for hormone therapy treatment in the US.
In addition, I screened and watched a very good new documentary about HRT, hormone replacement therapy, and Hof Flash Havoc in a very informative and entertaining way gets the word out with a lot of educational issues and history and helps all of us make sense out of what is and what is not happening today in this field. My interview with the producer, Heidi Houston and my thoughts are below and there are some movie trailers at the link as well. BD

The Women's Health Initiative study was published in JAMA. Dr. Erika Schwartz from the Age Management Institute visited Good Day to talk about the study. Dr. Schwartz believes the study is scaring women and telling us what we already knew, which is that synthetic HRT drugs can cause cancer.
