Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement the Best Choice for Me and my Future Health?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is so very important for supporting our normal function and the aging process with minimal or no side effects. Any hormone or substance that is naturally occurring in nature and in the human body, by law, is unable to be patented as a drug. Replacement hormones may come from pregnant horse urine or may be made synthetically in the lab so that they are structurally different and react differently in the human body. There are also many side effects to these non-bioidentical hormones that there are too many to list in this one article. And by changing the structure of these hormones they then can be patented and prescribed as a drug.
Many are the proven benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. They include facilitated weight loss, better sleep, increased bone density with exercise and proper supplementation, improved memory and multitasking, reduction of the symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and night sweats, increased skin elasticity with fewer wrinkles and increased lean muscle mass.
Our bodies will recognize the use of bioidentical hormone replacement which enables these hormones to communicate and bind properly with our same hormone receptors thereby generating the identical biological responses in the body that will provide direction and support to the body’s cells, tissues and organs.
Every person’s body chemistry is unique and must be addressed on an individual basis and tailored to meet the exact dosages needed for each person’s needs. That is the importance of testing your hormones before starting bioidentical hormone replacement. The added benefit is that bioidentical hormone replacement is virtually side-effect free.
With proper testing of your hormones and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, hormone balancing can bring about a younger, healthier and more vital you.
