What Are Bio-Identical Hormones and How Can They Help Me?

As we age, our bodies naturally produce less of certain hormones. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. However, there is a help available by use of Bio-identical hormones.

Bio-identical hormones are molecules that are identical to the hormones made within your body. They are derived from plant sources, not human or animal.

For some women, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help to relieve these symptoms and improve their quality of life.

To be clear: synthetic hormones are like natural hormones, but do not act the same. Progestin, for example, is not the same as progesterone. In a sense, it is like flavorings: artificial flavors are not the same as natural flavors.

Bio-identical hormones are safe to use over the long term when recommended according to your individual needs. They are used to replace hormones that your body no longer makes enough of.

Hormones may be supplemented by topical creams, troches [a lozenge that dissolves inside the mouth], or small pellets injected under the skin.

BHRT helps with a wide range of health problems and symptoms and may have anti-aging benefits.

What are the Benefits of BHRT?

BHRT can help women get back much of their vitality. Signs of aging and other serious health issues may soon appear in women if they choose not to do any form of hormone replacement therapy. The hormone declines and estrogen imbalance of menopause is associated with breast cancer, osteoporosis, and other serious health issues. Hormone replacement therapy to rebalance estrogen supports bone health, offers heart & artery protection, and can protect against cognitive decline.
