Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Proper hormone balance is critical to your health, and hormones are the most delicately balanced system in your body.
Hormones regulate your heartbeat and breathing, control your blood pressure and metabolism, help fight stress, soothe pain, calm anxiety and stimulate your immune system. Sex hormones, like estrogens, progesterone and testosterone, play important roles in controlling sex drive, regulating the menstrual cycle and allowing for pregnancy and birth.
Although bioidentical hormones are created in a lab (not extracted from humans) they have the same molecular structure as hormones made in the human body, and they are chemically indistinguishable from one another.
With bioidentical hormone therapy, your hormone deficiencies or excesses must be evaluated before your customized prescription can be compounded. Compounding allows for your bioidentical hormones to be specific to your needs and is prepared for your individualized dosage, strength and formulation.
