It’s a vital aspect of medical advancement and this includes the field of hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy is one of the fastest growing areas of medicine in 2014. The market share revenue is in the $billions and is continuing to grow daily.
A little background on Lawley
Lawley are based in Perth Australia and use an approved government facility to manufacture their hormone creams. AndroForte, AndroFeme and ProFeme are pharmaceutical grade bioidentical topical creams that treat low testosterone (in men and women) and progesterone deficiency/estrogen dominance (in women). The Lawley mission is to encourage people to treat natural hormone deficiencies with natural bioidentical hormone therapies, rather than synthetic therapies. Treating “like with like” means that the body absorbs and reacts better to the therapy. Ultimately, the body sees the therapy as an extension and top up for its current natural hormone production, rather than a synthetic treatment that can further stifle the body’s own level of natural hormone production. Participating in medical research studies is an important way of showcasing this theory.
The reach of hormone replacement therapies like testosterone replacement therapy reaches far beyond the framework of sexual dysfunction, low libido and menopause.
