Quick Order Natural Hormones Dr. Pensanti Interview with John R. Lee M.D.

Are You Currently Taking
Prescription Synthetic Hormones?

Do you want to get off synthetic hormones?
Start on natural plant hormones to get you through the passage of Menopause?

Here are my synthetic hormone weaning instructions!

1st Month Weaning Instructions:

Start your Natural Bio-Identical Plant based hormones creme or pill as directed. Take your synthetic estrogen pill (Premarin, Estrace, etc.) every other day or cut estrogen patch in half. If you are one of those women who are taking a separate synthetic progestin such as Provera, you may drop it completely and immediately.

2nd Month Weaning Instructions:

Use your Natural Bio-Identical Plant based hormones creme or pill as directed. Take your synthetic estrogen pill (Premarin, Estrace, etc.) every third day or cut estrogen patch in quarters.

3rd Month Weaning Instructions:

Use your Natural Bio-Identical Plant based hormones creme or pill as directed. Take your synthetic estrogen pill (Premarin, Estrace, etc.) every fourth day. Go totally off estrogen patch.

4th Month Weaning Instructions:

Continue your Natural Bio-Identical Plant based hormones creme or pill as directed. Off all synthetic hormones.

NOTE: Paper tape used for gauze bandages can be used to hold a partial estrogen patch in place.

Hot flashes sometimes reoccur. Do not give up. Hot flashes are very annoying, but no one ever died from a hot flash. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, can cause a variety of life-threatening conditions. After weaning, you may need to experiment with your dose of creme to discover the one which helps you feel the most comfortable. It may vary from month to month, but the usual dose of 1/4 tsp. twice daily works well for most women. "It is okay to use the natural creme 3-4 times a day in the beginning if need be."
