Bioidentical hormones can ease a painful menopause transition, and you won’t need to take them forever.
Levels of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone go into free-fall in the years leading up to menopause, causing symptoms that can include hot flashes/night sweats, vaginal dryness, mild depression, headaches, fatigue, brain fog, and urinary incontinence.
Many women ask if there are any problems involved in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The short answer is no. A small but rapidly growing group of physicians believes the health problems associated with traditional HRT have everything to do with the source of the sex hormones themselves. Premarin, the top-prescribed estrogen, comes from the urine of a pregnant horse. Premarin simply is not the same molecule as the estrogen of a human female.
If you choose to restore your hormone levels, you want to use hormones that are identical to your own–hence the term “bioidentical” hormones. What we know for certain is that bioidentical hormones effectively relieve menopause symptoms. The ultimate goal when using bioidentical HRT is to replicate as closely as possible your hormone status when you were about fifteen years younger.
Bioidentical hormones are available from compounding pharmacies throughout the US. We’ve prescribed them to thousands of women for more than 17 years. Usually a single office visit is all that’s necessary, along with a recent Pap smear and mammogram.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones or natural hormones are replicas of the body’s own natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to the same hormones your body makes.
Synthetic hormones are derived from plant progesterone and animal estrogens, but are not identical to the hormones your body uses.
Bioidentical hormones are a natural solution to a natural problem! By using a lab test called a hormone panel, the physicians at American Longevity Center are able to take a more individualized approach to your treatment. After this panel is done, a prescribed dosage of bioidentical estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, and/or DHEA is prepared for you and only you. They are prepared in a lab to have the same molecular structure as the hormones in your own body. With this individualized dosage of hormones, you will be surprised at how fast you can restore the hormones in your body back to their normal balance and start feeling like yourself again.
Bioidentical hormones have helped thousands of women suffering the symptoms of hormone imbalance and they can help you too.
You probably have many questions, and we have answers for you. So don’t wonder anymore, pick up the phone and schedule yourself a consultation. It’s the first step to feeling better again, feeling like YOU.
