  2. Hor­mones are mol­e­cules that are syn­the­sized and secreted by glands.
  3. Hor­mones are trans­ported through the blood­stream and trans­fer infor­ma­tion and instruc­tions between cells.
  4. Hor­mones act like keys in a lock, or pieces to a puzzle.
  5. Hor­monal com­mu­ni­ca­tion pat­terns become less effi­cient long before this inef­fi­ciency man­i­fests into chronic disease.
  6. Nat­ural hor­mone replace­ment con­sists of finely tuned indi­vid­u­al­ized sub­stances that are iden­ti­cal in struc­ture and quan­tity to what a young, healthy body produces.
  7. Nat­ural hor­mone replace­ment is not the mas­sive phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal quan­ti­ties included in stan­dard hor­mone pre­scrip­tions.
  8. The future of health care will be based on hor­mone con­trol.  What a chal­lenge it is to be part of this shift in paradigms.
