What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement?
Like it or not, aging depletes hormone levels in 100% of adults. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) are medications containing hormones to replace the ones the body no longer makes. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (bHRT) uses hormones that are chemically bio-identical to that of the hormone that exists in the human body. Bio-Identical hormones are able to follow normal metabolic pathways to generate the same responses in the body as the hormones that the body used to make naturally.
Bio-Identical Hormone pellet therapy was first used in the mid 1930's, about 7 years before synthetic oral estrogens were developed. Pellet therapy is arguably the best way for Hormone Replacement, as this therapy does not produce the roller coaster effect that creams and injections can have.
Hormone balance is critical to women and men's overall health and well being, and should be seen as a proactive approach to "aging gracefully". The natural decline in hormones is a significant contributor to degenerative diseases and age-related decline in physical and mental function. Natural hormone balancing provides effective and safe solutions. Hormone balance is necessary to prevent symptoms such as low energy levels and decreased libido. Optimizing and balancing the hormones - Estrogen, Testosterone and Progesterone - to levels we had in our youth is beneficial to both our health and our quality of life.
