What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Structurally and functionally identical to human hormones, Bioidentical Hormones are unique to any other form of hormone replacement therapy; their identical nature allows them to be quickly accepted and used in the body. They fit like a lock and key with the body’s cell receptors, whereas non-identical hormones are often partially recognized in the body and often take up cell receptor sites that they should not be attached to. Because Bioidentical Hormones are an exact fit to cells and mimic the body’s hormones, most patients do not experience unpleasant side effects.
Another positive side to Bioidentical Hormones is that they can be dosed to meet exact and specific needs. Previous forms of hormone replacement often prescribed the same dosage of a hormone to different patients, each with a varying degree of an imbalance. For example, a woman with a mild estrogen deficiency going through perimenopause may have received the same dosage of a hormone as a post-menopausal woman with a much greater deficiency. The excess estrogen would have put the woman with a mild estrogen deficiency at risk for estrogen dominance, and the insufficient dosage for the post-menopausal woman would not have been enough to reduce her symptoms of hormonal imbalance. With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, each person’s unique levels are taken into account and the exact amount of a hormone that is needed is prescribed.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve numerous conditions related to hormonal decline. While imbalances typically occur with aging, elevated levels of stress and poor lifestyle factors can lead to disproportionate hormone levels. Some of the age-related conditions that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve include perimenopause, menopause, and andropause. Stress-related conditions that can be improved include Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Autoimmune conditions that can benefit from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, Grave’s disease, and fibromyalgia. Restoring hormone balance with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy can reduce the many symptoms associated with conditions related to hormonal imbalances.
