Who needs bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?
Almost all of us over the age of 35 begin to experience hormone imbalance. As a result, you may have developed symptoms that may include hair loss, limited energy, mood swings, sleeplessness, poor concentration, memory loss, fatigue and low sex drive and well as decreased sexual response. Re-establishing balance is possible in the form of bio-identical hormone therapy.
What are bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones are produced naturally by our bodies. Our bodies can metabolize and excrete these hormones more readily and safely. Another advantage is that the dosage of bio-identical hormones are personalized to match your own needs based on your lab results. While bio-identical hormones are one piece of the puzzle, there is often more to offer in the form of nutritional and herbal supplements that are unique to your own body chemistry.
