Digestion, appetite, immune function, brain function, libido, and mood are all influenced by hormones. Indeed, hormones control nearly all the body’s basic tasks.
Low or imbalanced hormone levels can have uncomfortable effects on your patient's health and feeling of well-being. For more and more people experiencing difficulties with low or imbalanced hormones, the solution is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This is the use of medications to replace the hormones the body isn’t producing.
Bioidentical hormones act the same as natural human hormones. Thus, they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.
Bioidentical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy. Did you know that traditional hormone replacement therapy (medications from a retail pharmacy) sometimes uses hormones made from the urine of pregnant horses (or other synthetic hormones)? Yikes! Bioidentical hormones, which are man-made from plant estrogens, have the same molecular structure and act the same as natural human hormones. We’ll take plants over synthetics any day!
There are many of benefits to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Take a look below.
