When Should You Consider Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Hormonal changes associated with menopause or peri-menopause are natural. Yet some women can experience hormonal imbalances that cause these changes to start earlier than they should, or that cause problems more disruptive than necessary. While most women will experience some symptoms of menopause, others will experience symptoms severe enough to seriously impact their quality of life.

Why Haven’t Your Hormones Been Balanced?

Unfortunately, some doctors simply advise their patients to accept these changes. You may have been told that these symptoms are due to stress or there is no physical cause, and what you’re feeling is all in your head. You may have been told to get used to living with biological shifts that are an expected part of the aging process. Worse, many doctors will try to treat your symptoms with antidepressants or other drugs without resolving the hormone imbalance that causes them.

Why We Provide Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are exactly like those the body produces naturally. When administered and used appropriately, they help restore your body’s ability to function optimally. Bioidentical Hormones require a prescription, and are compounded specifically for you. Since they are compounded, based on laboratory values and symptoms the doses are completely individualized just for you.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe?

Bioidentical Hormones are a safe alternative to the synthetic hormones that were typically used before 2002. New findings show that the synthetic hormones used before 2002 have a molecular structure that is different from natural hormones. The body did not recognize these fake hormones, and their use increased other health risks. Bioidentical hormones are so named because they have exactly the same structure as the body’s own hormones. Your body recognizes them as normal and no different from those you naturally produce. Because your body processes Bioidentical Hormones naturally, they are far safer to use. New evidence shows that these natural formulations can actually optimize your health.

Bioidentical Hormones Can Lower Other Health Risks

Bioidentical Hormones have been shown to decrease a woman’s likelihood of heart attack, stroke, and osteoporosis. Research has shown that when used properly, Bioidentical Hormones can help reduce the risks of many other medical conditions. Each woman’s body is unique and will respond best to an individualized program that addresses her specific symptoms, needs, lifestyle, medical and family history.
