You should use traditional hormone therapy instead of biodentical hormones because biodentical hormones are produced in doses and forms that differ from those in FDA-approved products. Biodentical hormones are custom made for you, based on a test of your saliva to assess your unique hormonal needs. Unfortunately, however, the hormone levels in your saliva don't reflect the levels in your blood or correspond to menopause symptoms. The term "bioidentical" means the hormones in the product are chemically identical to those your body produces. In fact, the hormones in bioidentical medications may not be any different from those in traditional hormone therapy.
