Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Why replace hormones? Did you know that, after age 25, both men and women lose approximately 2 – 3% of many hormones each year? By age 50, we have only half the hormone production we enjoyed when we were younger, stronger and more energetic!

These are hormones that are critical for maintaining vitality, health and mental sharpness! In fact, it’s estimated that, by menopause, many women have lost up to 90% of some hormones! Men, too, experience dramatic losses!

Hormones play a role in countless functions in the human body. When most people think of hormone replacement therapy, they think it is reserved solely for menopausal women suffering from hot flashes. Now, the practice of BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has expanded to include men and women and the use of testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, melatonin and cortisol in addition to Estrone, Estradiol, Estriol and progesterone.

Why “BioIdentical” Hormone Replacement?

“BioIdentical” Hormone Replacement Therapy replaces the hormones you’ve lost with hormones that are molecularly identical – having the exact same chemical structure – as the hormones made in the human body. Synthetic hormones are not natural to the human body. BioIdentical Hormone Replacement therapy is an all-natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement. Synthetic hormones are patented, animal-derived (from substances such as horse urine) or artificial hormones. Most of the side effects associated with hormone replacement therapy seem to result from the fact that these synthetic hormones are not chemically identical to a woman’s natural-produced hormones. Your body can tell the difference.
