their use isn’t taught in medical school or promoted

by pharmaceutical companies. Because natural hormones

cannot be patented for the same reasons you can’t

patent natural air, water or vitamins, there’s little

or no incentive for the pharmaceutical industry to

spend the $200 million or more necessary to run all

the clinical trials and do all the paperwork to get

even one of these hormones approved by the Food and

drug industry to pay the enormous costs, the large

definitive studies that might demonstrate efficacy

better than competing drugs will never be done. Almost

all doctors see only the studies for the benefits

TransMist Spray is an extremely convenient way to

and soft, such as the face, neck, upper chest, breasts,

inner arms, abdomen, inner thighs, palms of the hands

and soles of the feet. Just be sure to alternate sites

so that the progesterone is absorbed into the fat

layer under the skin. If you apply it to the same

spot all the time, the fat will become saturated in

that area and you won’t get optimal absorption.
