Regenerative Medicine for Women
“Feel like yourself again, only better”
Hormonal fluctuations and the symptoms that occur during Perimenopause, Menopause, , and prior to the start of a woman’s monthly period (PMS/PMDD) can cause discomfort and disruption in our daily relationships and activities….
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) helps re-establish balance in your body by providing bio-mimetic hormones that are molecularly identical to those that naturally occur in your body. By replacing the hormones lacking in your body, you can reclaim your natural balance and feel rejuvenated.
What are BioIdentical Hormones
Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the chemical structure of the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies.
On the flip side, synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Pharmaceutical companies can’t patent bioidentical hormones because each regimen is specifically formulated to treat each patient on an individual basis. Instead, they manufacture synthetic hormones that are patentable and profitable, but not necessarily safe or effective. Synthetic estrogens and progestins do not fit into our hormone receptor sites the way bio-identical hormones do, thus they are correlated with many side effects and increased risk for dis-ease such as cancer and heart disease.
Are BioIdentical Hormones more safe or effective than synthetic hormones
Bioidentical hormones are more appealing when dealing with hormonal issues such as menopause because they are derived naturally and our bodies can metabolize them properly. Another advantage of using bioidentical hormones is that they are specifically designed and dosed to match your individual hormonal needs – unlike synthetic hormones, which use a one-size-fits-all approach to symptom relief.
There is an overwhelmingly large body of evidence that supports the claim that bioidentical hormone therapy is safer and more effective than synthetic hormone replacement. However, it’s important to remember that no drug, herb, or nutritional supplement is 100 percent safe – there is always a chance that you may experience an adverse reaction. That’s why it’s critical to consult with a hormone specialist before beginning any hormone therapy regimen.
