Hormone Replacement Therapy

The difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones is dual fold. Unlike bioidentical hormones, synthetic, or conventional, hormones may be patented by pharmaceutical companies; therefore dosage varies only by milligrams dictated by your doctor, while the molecular structure of the prescribed hormone is the same for every single person on that drug. Additionally, synthetic hormones are not created structurally the same as human endogenous hormones, which often leads uncomfortable side effects. While synthetic hormones can mimic the effects of endogenous hormones on certain biological pathways, they rarely offer the same effectiveness at a deeper, molecular level.

Bioidentical hormones mimic the affinity of human endogenous hormones; therefore they are effective on more biological pathways, at all levels. Because bioidentical hormones are an exact structural replica of endogenous hormones, side effects are rarely observed, and in the event you do experience side effects, talk with your doctor—the dosage may simply need to be adjusted. The added benefit of bioidentical hormones is that each dose is tailored specifically for your needs, not simply what doses the pharmaceutical company offers (as is the case with synthetic hormones.)

Balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for women and men as we age. This preventive medical approach helps put an end to the suffering caused by, signs of hormone imbalance, menopause, peri-menopause and even andropause (the male menopause).

Women suffering from hormone imbalance symptoms looking to put an end to energy loss, hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, mood swings, weight gain, and low libido (sex drive). Men who want to get a grip on weight gain, lost libido, fatigue, stress, energy, muscle mass, and body fat.

Hormone levels in men and women decline as we age; bio-identical hormone therapy replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function. Bio-identical hormones are molecule-by-molecule, exactly the same as the hormones already present in the human body. Common symptoms of Hormone Imbalance:

  • Lack of energy and fatigue
  • Reduced mental focus and memory loss
  • Moody, anxious or depressed
  • Weight gain, including increased fat around the midsection
  • Muscle and/or joint pain
  • Reduced sexual desire and performance
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats

Hormones can rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They are powerful chemical messengers that circulate throughout the body and travel to specific cells to orchestrate many vital internal functions..
