"Most doctors give women synthetic (non-bioidentical) hormones, which eliminate the symptoms, but it's doing nothing to replace the hormones you have lost. Without our hormones, we die." — Suzanne Somers
Healthcare practitioners like Dr. Patrick Lovegrove and his team evaluate patients’ hormone requirements by collecting a thorough history and lab testing (saliva/blood/urine). Based on this information, a bioidentical hormone doctor writes a prescription tailored to the patient’s needs or recommends herbal and dietary programs to balance the endocrine system.
Use hormone replacement therapy for short-term treatments such as hot flashes, vaginal atrophy, and even the prevention of osteoporosis. But there are lots of medical uses for hormone replacement therapy.
Standard dosing with non-customized prescriptions often does not give patients the full benefits of natural hormone replacement and can have adverse side effects.
Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones made in the body. The body does not know the difference between the hormone it makes and bio-identical hormones. These bioidentical hormones are extracted from natural substances like yam and soy or made in a lab. Synthetic,non-bioidentical hormones, on the other hand, have different molecules unrecognized by the body. They don't break down by the body's enzymes and thus may stay unmetabolized for long periods as carcinogens and toxins.
Visit the nearest hormone doctor and get tested. When testing hormone levels, the results are frequently within normal ranges. It simply means that someone does not have the disease. It does not mean their hormones are at optimal levels for health. Optimal levels of hormones are vital to preventing disease, maintaining energy, and feeling young. It explains why people who are told their lab results look fine still feel lousy.
Bioidentical hormones have been utilized in Europe for 60+ years and studies show that they are both safe and effective. The important aspect of utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement is to monitor the levels and hormone metabolites. Each hormone must not only be balanced with the others but achieve a lab level that is associated with safety and efficacy for both feeling good and preventive outcomes.
Today, millions of people are experiencing hormonal imbalances and deficiencies.
