Bio-identical hormones should NEVER be swallowed. They should always be rubbed into the skin—transdermal application—or better yet, applied to a mucous membrane—inside the labia or inside the vagina for women, or on the perianal mucosa for men (where a hemorrhoid would develop)—transmucosal administration—notes Jonathan Wright, MD.
He notes that when these hormones are taken orally, they go straight to the liver, and the liver tries to get rid of them.
By applying them to inside the labia or inside the vagina for women, or on the perianal mucosa for men, these hormones enter the blood stream in the same area of the body where they are normally released, and they travel to the heart, and then are distributed to all the cells of the body BEFORE going to the liver.
This includes DHEA (another steroid hormone). It should NOT be taken orally either because it converts to estrogen.
In another audio clip he mentions that there is one exception to this rule and that is with progesterone.
He says that for some women, taking half their progesterone orally and the other half applied inside the labia or inside the vagina (transmucosal administration), the oral dose goes to the liver and some of it is converted into naturally-occuring tranquilizers which help women sleep, help them if they are feeling anxious, and can help them with PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome).
