USED IN TREATING:
Find relief using hormones from a naturally derived source
Hormones are the great messengers of the body. They are created by the endocrine glands and are carried by the bloodstream into every cell of the human body, enabling the cells to perform optimally. Hormones regulate growth, energy levels, sexual characteristics, reproductive capabilities, brain function, digestion and the synthesis of sugar. With age, most people experience a loss of hormonal balance. In the absence of hormonal balance, health declines, but fortunately, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can restore health by replenishing diminishing hormone levels.
Bioidentical hormones vs synthetic hormones
Natural bio-identical hormones come from a molecule in plants – specifically soy beans and yams. This molecule is extracted from these plants and converted into hormones for use in Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Structurally they are exactly the same as human hormones. The term “bio-identical” refers to the fact that these hormone molecules are precisely the same shape and form as those that are produced by the human body, and are therefore able to be used in an identical way as the hormones that are naturally produced in the body.
Conversely, synthetic hormones are derived from the urine of a female horse. The structure of the hormone molecules are manipulated so that they will function properly in the human body.
Is this treatment just for “hot flashes”?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy isn’t just for women suffering from the unkind hot flashes, sleepless nights, and mood swings of menopause. While it is an excellent treatment for those women, many of the most common conditions associated with aging – limited energy, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, sleeplessness, memory loss, fatigue, osteoporosis and more – can be improved in both women and men thanks to BHRT.
