Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) for Men and Women Anti-aging and rejuvenation medicine to help prevent chronic disease and obtain overall the highest level of quality in their health
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormones describe the structure of replacement hormones. These are chemically identical in structure and function to the hormones secreted before menopause and andropause. Unlike synthetic hormones which are rarely identical and are made from chemical other than plants, bio-identical hormones are safe, have fewer side effects and provide better symptoms relief than synthetic hormone replacement
Bioidentical hormone therapy has been developed to ease the symptoms of perimenopause.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are chemically the same as those that the body produces. Although they are made in a laboratory, bioidentical hormones mimic the hormones the human body produces naturally. As a result, the body should not be able to tell the difference between the hormones it produces and the bioidentical ones. Bioidentical hormones can be made from a variety of sources that span plants, yams to be exact.
Big pharmaceutical companies manufacture certain bioidentical hormones, which are regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
However, special kinds of pharmacies, which are known as compounding pharmacies, mix their own formulas of bioidentical hormones. Hormones made by these compounding pharmacies are not regulated by the FDA.
Most insurance companies continue to deny reimbursement of bio-identical hormone replacement, and rely on patients becoming sicker and aging with more diseases, rather to prevent the disease in the first place. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement have been linked to aged defying diseases such as cardio-vascular diseases, decrease in osteoporosis risks, decreases in diabetic hemoglobin A1c (marker used to monitor Type Two Diabetes), decrease risks of dementia, to name a few.
