As our bodies age, hormone levels decrease over time. By replacing the body’s natural
hormones to achieve the normal, balanced levels we had in our youth, physicians have been
able to turn back the clock on the aging process. Helping patients prevent age-related
illnesses, reverse biological age, extend life expectancy, and significantly improve the quality
of ensuing years is what has been accomplished through natural hormone replacement
therapy. Both men and women are subject to these symptoms. In females it is known as menopause/perimenopause, and in males it is known as andropause.

What Are Bio-identical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones we produce
in our own bodies. Because they are identical, these hormones mimic the exact chemistry
occurring naturally in the body. The body produces (or previously produced) these same
hormones, so there are much fewer, if any, negative side effects.
The term bio-identical has basically become a catch-all phrase for anything that is not a synthetic hormone. It is commonly applied to look-alike molecules derived from “natural” plants that are
substituted for our own endogenously-produced hormone molecules. Natural or bio-identical
hormones are made in a laboratory by converting natural plant compounds from wild yams and
soybeans into chemical molecules identical to those made in the human body for 17-beta
estradiol, progesterone, or testosterone.
These sources of plant hormones mimic the chemical structure of hormones produced by the
human body. The premise is that the body cannot distinguish between synthetic bio-identical
hormones and the hormones female ovaries produce naturally.
Bio-identical hormones are available in standardized tablets, patches, compounded creams, gels
and injectable prescriptions. If you’re interested in bioidentical hormone therapy, contact us today to see if it’s right for you.
