Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

The good thing about hormones is when they are in a balanced state in your body they act as your best friend but when they become imbalanced or start to drop due to accelerated aging, they can really start causing serious health issues which may come out in the form of various symptoms.

Your hormones work as an internal communication system between the cells and throughout the body. Hormonal health can be a key determination of one’s mood, libido, appetite, immune functioning, and even plays a major role in cognitive health. The imbalanced hormones for a prolonged time can result in severe neurological disorders. Moreover, imbalanced hormones speed- up the aging process of an individual.

People struggling with their hormonal health often look for hormone replacement therapies. There are many such therapies and one of them is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

What are bioidentical hormones?

The bioidentical hormones represent the same chemical structure of the hormones which are naturally produced by the human body. The traditional practice of hormone replacement therapies included the use of non-bioidentical hormones which were made from animals or are synthetic in nature. Bioidentical hormones fall into the category of gender hormones namely testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, and adrenal hormones such as hydrocortisone and DEHA.
