“This article presents a protocol for hormone replacement therapy with natural estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and melatonin.

This replacement of natural hormones is based on sound physiologic principles that have been demonstrated to be the preferred method of hormone replacement.” Infertility and Reproductive Medicine Clinics of North America; 1995 October; Vol. 6 (4):653-675
