Hormones regulate virtually every biological process in our body. They affect energy, mood, fertility, sex drive, hunger, body temperature, immune defense, resilience to stress, resistance to infection, and much more. When hormones decline as the result of age, unfavorable lifestyle, external stressors, or chronic disease, this can lead to a variety of health problems. When prescribed by a specially trained physician, bio-identical hormone therapy can be life changing.
It is important to understand the differences between hormone drugs that are foreign to our bodies and hormones that are identical to those naturally produced by our bodies. For example, there is a great deal of evidence that demonstrates that natural progesterone (unlike synthetic progestin drugs) and the natural estriol form of estrogen may help protect against the same disease caused by unnatural estrogen/progestin drugs, that are foreign to women’s bodies. Individualized doses of natural hormones, based on testing, personal history, and have been shown to safely benefit women over their lifetime.
