Women, would you like to look and feel young again? If you’ve experienced hair loss or thinning hair, low libido, brittle or broken nails, unexplained weight gain, or have trouble staying asleep you may be suffering from an age-induced hormonal imbalance. Bio-Identical hormone replacement therapy may help ease and even improve these symptoms. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be the answer.
The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bioidentical hormones — hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies. Bioidentical estrogens are 17 beta-estradiol, estrone, and estriol. (Estradiol is the form of estrogen that decreases at menopause.) Bioidentical progesterone is simply progesterone. It’s micronized (finely ground) in the laboratory for better absorption in the body. Bioidentical hormone therapy is often called “natural hormone therapy” because bioidentical hormones act in the body just like the hormones we produce.
Technically, the body can’t distinguish bioidentical hormones from the ones your ovaries produce. On a blood test, your total estradiol reflects the bioidentical estradiol you’ve taken as well as the estradiol your body makes.
Bioidentical estrogens, micronized progesterone and/or testosterone are made into a range of products, gels, creams, pills, pellets, many of which are FDA-approved and available with a prescription.
Not all bioidentical hormone treatments are created equal. In order for treatment to be safe and effective, the bioidentical hormones must be administered as part of a quality treatment protocol that includes:
