As the human body ages, organ systems begin to slow and the body loses its vitality. And in the everlasting quest to restore optimal health and prevent disease, people seek the expertise and knowledge of bioidentical medicine.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are compounded hormones derived from naturally-occurring sources, such as soy or yams. They are structurally indistinguishable from the natural hormones made by the human body—this is where the term “bioidentical” is accurately applied. This exact-match replication may reduce side-effects and risks, as well as potentially enhance the effectiveness of your treatment.

Here are some of the medical conditions
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help:
When women enter menopause, they experience a decline in both progesterone and estrogen. These hormones typically regulate a woman’s mental, sexual, and physical well-being.
Much like women experiencing menopause, men in their thirties experience a significant drop in the hormone testosterone, which also affects the stress hormone, otherwise known as cortisol.
Insulin is the hormone that regulates your body’s blood sugar so that your body can perform the metabolic processes it needs to function at its best. Hormonal therapy has been found to help regulate and control your body’s use of insulin.
Adrenal glands monitor and respond to all types of stress – emotional, physical, and psychological – it’s important you maintain the perfect balance if you want to live a long and healthy life.
FIBROMYALGIA & CHRONIC PAIN
Many people suffer every day with fibromyalgia or some sort of chronic pain. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been found to help eliminate hormonal imbalances linked to chronic pain.
Both men and women suffer from sexual dysfunction as they age and may benefit from receiving hormonal supplements to restore the balance and reduce symptoms such as vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, and low libido.
