Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is a better alternative to synthetic hormones.
Hormone imbalance is very common for both women and men of varying ages. This imbalance can occur throughout a person’s life when hormone levels tend to fluctuate such as: puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and andropause. The key to restoring these levels is by first properly diagnosing the imbalances that are present and then introducing all natural Bioidentical Hormones to replenish and balance the body.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Most of Bio identical Hormones are natural( plant based from Yam and Soy ). They have the same chemical structure as the ones made in your body therefore they are very safe and effective when properly prescribed and have many benefits for your overall health. Many common health and emotional symptoms can be directly related to hormonal imbalance. Once bioidentical hormones are introduced into the body many symptoms generally ease away and patients begin to feel a sense of herself or himself once again.
Drug companies can’t patent natural hormones. Synthetic hormones are structured similarly, but not the same as the hormones produced in your body, causing substantially different effects due to the chemical differences. The chemical structure of the bio-identical hormones is EXACTLY like the hormones naturally produced in your body and virtually indistinguishable.
