Hormones are not expensive. People come to us a lot of times, they say, “Wow, this costs a lot of money.” Well basically, I’m going to give you an example. If you’re a female and you needed all of the five basic hormones to optimize your health and your life, and that includes estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and thyroid. And, whether you need those or not will be a decision between you and the provider.
However, if you needed all those hormones, they’re going to run less than $200 dollars a month. Now, “Wow,” you say, “Two hundred dollars a month, that’s a lot of money.” But your life insurance, your car insurance, your house insurance, all of these costs much more than $200 dollars a month, probably in almost all cases.
Now, what are you getting with your health insurance? You’re getting maybe protection against getting a disease process and usually with a high deductible. What kind of insurance do you get taking hormones? Now, if you look at the science behind hormones. You’re going to find that all the things that you could get; heart disease, breast cancer, colon cancer, rectal cancer, all of these different maladies that hit us as we age can be prevented.
We’re preventive medicine and that’s what we focus on. So in that sense, it is very inexpensive to take natural hormones.
