Understanding Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormones are a part of the human anatomy that experts have been trying to understand for years. It’s difficult because hormones are constantly changing and switching throughout the many stages of life. A woman can be feeling fine one moment and then the next become pregnant or go through menopause with many different physical and emotional symptoms appearing. Men too can experience hormonal fluctuations. Hormones have a long history of causing many disturbances in the body but thankfully there is something new available that can get them stabilized once and for all.

If you have any type of hormonal imbalance in your body, bio-identical hormone therapy may be just what you need. Most people visit their doctor and end up with a prescription for synthetic hormones, which can often cause more damage than good. These hormones can cause various side effects, damage the body and in some cases can even cause cancer. If you’ve ever tried this type of hormonal treatment you have probably experienced some side effects yourself.

Bio-identical hormones are all-natural and have the same structure chemically as hormones found in the body. This is why they have been given the name bio-identical.

The body can respond to these hormones and recognizes them as being a natural part of it. Side effects are minimized since the hormones can be metabolized just like the regular hormones in your body and the following benefits can actually be seen using this specific therapy.

  • Fat levels reduced
  • Sexual desire increased
  • Better cognitive function
  • Density of bone mineral increased
  • Insulin and blood sugar levels improved
  • Fat levels reduced
  • Heart disease decreased
  • Skin, nails and hair strengthened
  • Improved mood
  • Overall sense of better well-being
