Explaining Bioidentical Hormones

A Natural Approach to Balance

As women and men approach mid-life, many often whether or not hormone therapy is the right option for them.  However, many are now taking a natural approach to hormone balance with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

With natural bioidentical hormones, women and men can find relief from symptoms of hormonal imbalance without the risks that come along with synthetic hormones.


What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones – or bio identical hormones – are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies.  Based on your hormone levels, a specialized compounding pharmacy can individually tailor a bioidentical hormone regimen specially designed for you.

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.


Are Bioidentical Hormones Safer, More Effective than Synthetic Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are more appealing to the masses when dealing with menopause or andropause because they are derived naturally and our bodies can metabolize them properly.  Another advantage of using bioidentical hormones is that they are specifically designed to match your individual hormonal needs – unlike synthetic hormones, which use a one-size-fits-all approach to symptom relief.
