Bioidentical Hormones involves the use of natural hormones to make up for the decline or lack of natural hormones produced in a person’s body. During the aging process, declining hormone levels can cause a person to become overweight, lose muscle mass and skin elasticity, and become easily fatigued. Bioidentical Hormones are available for both men and women.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the use of supplemental doses of naturally occurring hormones, versus conventional hormone replacement therapy, which often involves the use of chemicals and synthetics that have hormone activity but are not normally found in the human body.
The term “Bioidentical” is used because these hormones are chemically synthesized to be identical to the naturally occurring hormones of the human body. Bioidentical Hormones are usually made from the components of plants and are custom-mixed formulas containing various hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally made by your body.
