Why Bio-Identical Hormones?
Only the right hormone key fits the receptor lock to the cellular functions it regulates. A non-identical key, such as a synthetic hormone, can’t open the same doors or switches—only the natural hormone has the master key to the controls.
Bioidentical hormones are manufactured in a lab to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. Synthetic hormones, manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, are structured to be patentable (you can’t patent a bio-identical structure).
Bioidentical hormones are compounded in pharmacies to meet the specific requirements of each individual patient. Synthetic hormones are manufactured in one-size-fits-most dosages.
Bioidentical Hormone Controversy
While the ability to formulate an exact dosage for an individual using bioidentical hormones is preferred over the one-size-fits-all approach of the stronger synthetic hormones, you must consider that hormones are a drug. We never recommend that anyone consider that any drug is ever completely safe.
We approach our patients’ health and wellness with a wholistic approach. We highly encourage healthy eating and supplementation, exercise, stress relief, sleep, and other lifestyle changes first. Any bioidentical hormone replacement is then as a complement to those lifestlye changes, and never the only support. Our patients are treated as individuals, taking into account their history, current conditions and symptoms, and lifestyle.
