Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the treatment of the hormone deficiencies caused by pre-menopause, menopause, and andropause (male menopause)- using only molecules that are identical to the hormones found in the human body. BHRT differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy which includes animal-derived and invented molecules that are similar to, but not identical, to human hormones.
What is the difference between bio-identical and synthetic hormones?
Synthetic hormones are manufactured in laboratories, for mass consumption, in other words, one-pill-fits-all. Because they are synthetic and not natural, they can produce unwanted side effects like nausea, fluid retention, and dizziness. And there are also potential dangers like the increased risk of breast or uterine cancer.
Bioidentical hormones, contrary to synthetic hormones, are extracted from natural sources, plants like soybean and wild yams, and their molecular structure is identical to that of the hormones produced by our bodies. They can also be compounded to suit your specific hormone replacements needs, allowing you to receive individualized treatment.
Some advantages of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy are; improved look and feel of hair and skin, weight loss, improved sex drive, improved mental health, lower cholesterol levels, decreased risk of osteoporosis, decreased risk of heart attack and stroke and so much more!
