Bioidentical Hormones are derived from plant sources such as soy and are compounded to be biologically equivalent to human estradiol and testosterone. Bioidentical Hormones are safer and react differently in body tissues than do the synthetic or chemically developed substitutes. Synthetic substitutes are found in progestins, birth control pills, or purified animal urine sources, which have very different tissue effects and may result in increased clotting risks, heart attacks, and stroke risks.
Of the many various forms of hormone replacement, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy offers better long-term stable hormone levels.
This stability provides a better effect in various ways, which may include improving:
- Sexual dysfunction
- Fat mass
- Sleep patterns
- Memory & concentration
- Bone mineral density
- Performance and libido
- Muscle strength
- Menopausal symptoms
Bioidentical Hormones can be very effective in treating PMS and post partum depression. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used in the U.S.A. since the early 1930s and is commonly used in Australia and throughout Europe. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is highly successful in treating Menopause and Andropause, which is the male equivalent to menopause in women. Andropause occurs as men grow older and no longer produce enough hormones to meet their usual needs; however, Bioidentical testosterone has been shown to decrease the risk of breast cancer in women. In men, testosterone replacement combined with another medication will reduce the male body’s conversion to estrogens and thus reduces their risk of male breast and prostate enlargement.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Delivery Methods
Bioidentical Hormone pellets are a highly effective delivery method, and they are nearly the size of a grain of rice and have a continual release of the natural hormones over a period of 4-6 months. Appropriate blood testing is performed prior to insertion to determine the dosages best suited for each individual. Bioidentical Hormone pellets contain either estradiol or testosterone and are inserted under the skin in the abdomen or the upper buttocks under local anesthesia. This type of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is one of the most effective and natural forms of hormone replacement available.
