balance hormons 670x446 - The Science Behind Bioidentical Hormones

Hormones help our bodies maintain balance and harmony. Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) can help restore hormone levels when age, lifestyle, or other factors reduce them.

Reduced hormone levels can cause a cascade of consequences, which is why correcting these imbalances can provide such dramatic positive results. But how do bioidentical hormones work?

Molecular Similarities

At their heart, bioidentical hormones follow a fundamental principle: creating hormones with a molecular similarity to the hormones produced by the body. Synthetic hormones are close, but they have structural differences because they have been derived from animal sources.

By contrast, bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources and are designed to precisely mimic the molecular structure of hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

This structural similarity allows bioidentical hormones to seamlessly integrate into the body’s hormonal pathways, making them intensely effective. In addition, the body recognizes and metabolizes these hormones in the same way that it processes its own natural hormones.

How bioidentical Hormones Are Made

bioidentical hormones may be made from yams or soy. Makers extract the active compounds from the plants and then convert them into hormones that are structurally identical to human hormones.

These hormones are then purified and formulated into various dosages such as capsules, patches, or injections. 

Personalized Precision

BHRT requires a personalized approach.

Hormone levels can vary significantly from person to person. Whereas synthetic hormones are prescribed with a one-size-fits-all approach, BHRT providers seek to address individual hormone levels and needs.

We conduct thorough tests to ensure the precise doses that individuals need to correct various symptoms and problems. Thus, your hormone therapy matches your needs and goals.
