Why Choose Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement over Other Anti-Aging Therapies?
Feeling unduly tired? Changes in libido? Suffering menstrual abnormalities? Gaining weight suddenly?
You may be experiencing the same distressing age-related condition as more than 70% of the population, men as well as women, born after the 1940s: hormone deficiency. Hormone deficiencies occur when the production of natural hormones decline in aging adults sometime after the age of 30. Menopause in women and andropause in men, for example, are conditions that are usually associated with low and imbalanced hormone levels.
Hormone Replacement Therapy can be the ideal answer to such symptoms. HRT is the process by which vital hormones like estrogen, and testosterone, and growth hormone (HGH), are replaced and augmented on a prescribed schedule to mimic the body’s natural processes.
Bioidentical hormones are the most natural HRT fit for addressing the medical issues associated with age-related hormone imbalances and deficiencies. These hormones, with ingredients derived from such natural sources as soy and yams, have the same molecular structure as, for example, the body’s natural thyroid hormones, Progesterone, Cortisol and DHEA. And they generate the same physiologic responses.
By contrast, synthetic hormones have intentionally different molecular structures that are designed by drug companies and therefore patentable. These synthetic hormones produce abnormal metabolites that can cause side effects and increase the risk of cancer. Provera, a medroxyprogesterone, for instance, has a very long list of side effects, as well as risks listed in the Physician’s Desk Reference that include breast cancer, depression, weight gain and blood clots.
Until evidence to the contrary is produced, bioidentical hormones remain the preferred method of HRT.
