Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy means the chemical make-up of the replacement hormones are exactly the same as what your body produces naturally. The hormones used are processed from wild yam and soybean plants and while they are not “human” in origin, they are identical in structure and function to human hormones. When describing natural hormones, the word “natural” refers to the structure of the hormone, not the source.
What are the goals of HRT?
· Re-establish a hormonal balance that mimics your own body’s natural hormone balance.
· Alleviate symptoms caused by the age-related natural decline in production of body hormones –by using the lowest dose needed to control symptoms without producing side effects caused by excess hormones.
· Provide all the protective benefits which were originally provided by naturally occurring hormones in your body –while avoiding undesirable effects.
No two women are alike. The value of natural hormone replacement is that it can be tailored to your individual body and hormone levels. With the help of your prescriber, you can start and maintain a replacement regimen that closely mimics your own body and allows for changes as you grow older.
