About Barbara Hoffman 

Barbara Hoffman is an educator, researcher, author, and women’s health advocate. She is president of Better Health Naturally and New Healthy Skin which focus on natural health products and paraben-free skin care.

Barbara began her career in the medical field working with OB-GYN and Infertility Specialists. She went on to become involved in the field of bio-identical hormones in 1994 and founded the Progesterone Research Network, a website devoted to educating women about the benefits of natural progesterone. She holds a degree in naturopathy from Clayton College of Natural Health. She is recoginized as one of the few independent voices in woman's health care.

Barbara produced a national television show for 13 years which focused on natural approaches to health and wellness. As producer, Barbara solicited, met and interviewed Medical and Naturopathic physicians from all over the world, including prestigious research physicians. She incorporates their teachings into her educational efforts and has devoted her career to keeping women healthy and balanced.

The dermatologists and plastic surgeons Barbara met shared their information and contributed to the development of both the Heavenly Skin and New Healthy Skin products. With the skin care lines, Barbara has developed pricing that makes the physician-strength products affordable for you; the prices have remained the same for many years so that you can have the same glowing skin results as high-priced medical spa and physician office products.

Barbara has developed 3 natural bio-identical hormone crèmes: ProHELP Moisture Treatment Crème, Menopause Moisture Crème with Red Clover, and Pro-MEN Prostate Care Cream. For the past 31 years she has been researching the benefits of natural progesterone and writing about alternatives to synthetic hormones. Her passion to teach fuels her mission of empowering women to make more educated and informed choices about their health.. Her credo is "Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life."

Barbara says “The symptoms of hormone imbalance are very real and very treatable. You were NOT designed to suffer. Natural progesterone offers a host of remarkable benefits. It can be your answer.”
