 About Barbara Hoffman


Barbara Hoffman is the president of Better Health Naturally and New Healthy Skin. She is an educator, researcher, author, and women’s health advocate. 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 has since 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.

Barbara produced a national television show for 13 years which focused on natural approaches to health and wellness. As producer, Barbara solicited, met with, 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 the New Healthy Skin products. With this skin care line, Barbara has developed pricing that makes the physician-strength products affordable for you; prices have remained the same for many years so that you can have the same glowing results that you would get from high-priced medical spa and physician office products.


She has developed 3 natural bio-identical hormone cremes: ProHELP Moisture Treatment Creme, Menopause Moisture Crème with Red Clover, and Pro-MEN Prostate Care Cream. For the past 20 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."
