Bio-identical hormone therapy is subject to many misperceptions. Often, these misperceptions keep people from seeking help that could really benefit them. After all, the symptoms of aging are often life-altering, and the truth is you don’t have to live with them.

Here are some of the most common myths about bioidentical hormone therapy, as well as the facts behind those myths.

Myth #1: Bioidentical Hormones Are Not Effective

Bio-identical hormones are safe and effective when administered under the care of a qualified medical practitioner. Studies have shown they’re just as effective at treating the symptoms of menopause, andropause, adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalances, and other hormonal conditions.

They may even be more effective, as they are customized for every individual based on saliva or blood tests rather than being administered in fixed doses.

Myth #2: Hormone Therapy is Only for Women

Men age too! Andropause can wreak just as much havoc as menopause, and so men can benefit from hormone optimization as well. For example, bio-identical hormone therapy can help correct low testosterone.

If you are a man suffering from low energy or low libido, consider making an appointment. 

Myth #3: Bioidentical Hormones Are Too Expensive

Bio-identical hormones can be a very cost-effective option given the conditions they correct. Instead of buying separate drugs to manage migraine pain, weight gain, and other conditions, you can take one customized compound that addresses all of your conditions at once. 

If you are suffering from multiple hormonal issues, from hot flashes to mood swings, and you find that all or most of the health problems you’re struggling with are hormonal in nature, then bio-identical hormone therapy can be the most economical option for you.

In addition, BHRT can serve as a powerful preventative medicine to stave off certain age-related diseases and chronic illnesses.

Note that bio-identical hormone therapy is not a magical fountain of youth. It can help you manage the symptoms of aging but does not work as an “anti-aging drug.”
