What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones made in a woman’s body. Unlike their synthetic predecessors, bioidentical hormones are made from a plant extract derived from yams and soy. These extracts are processed in a medical lab to exactly duplicate the natural hormones’ structure.

What are the advantages of bioidentical hormones?

The body cannot tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and those naturally produced in the body, which means these newer hormones are safer than traditional, synthetic versions. Another significant advantage is that bioidentical hormones can be precisely monitored via blood and saliva tests. As a result, hormones’ dosages are easily customized for every patient. And also, hormones are more easily absorbed by the body compared to synthetic hormones.

How can bio-identical hormone therapy help me?

Most women experience severe, even debilitating symptoms due to the decrease in the female sex hormones, estrogen, and progesterone that accompany menopause. By replacing these hormones with bioidentical versions, women not only enjoy relief from these symptoms but reap increased energy and strength and a diminished risk of age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis.
