Find a Doctor Who Uses Natural Hormones


Not all doctors who use natural hormones use them the way Dr. Lee recommended. Please avoid doctors who use mega-doses of hormones--you'll just create new hormone imbalances. Also avoid doctors who think it's a good idea to have menopausal women menstruating again--this is not a safe practice.

One of the best sources of information for finding a doctor in your area is your local compounding pharmacist:

COMPOUNDING PHARMACISTS
Compounding pharmacists make individualized medications, including natural hormones and many of them work with doctors who use natural hormones. In fact, many compounding pharmacists are more educated than the doctors they work with about how to best use natural hormones, and can help educate and guide a doctor who is unsure. For a referral in your area contact IACP (International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists), (800) 927-4227, ext 300, or go online to www.iacprx.org and plug in your zip code.

Health Food Stores
Your local health food store can be another good source of info on doctors and other health care professionals who are familiar with natural hormones. You can also look in your yellow pages under "physicians." Those who practice alternative medicine often advertise themselves as wholistic or holistic physicians.
