What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones, often referred to as natural hormones, have the same molecular structure as those hormones which are produced naturally by the human body. Bioidentical hormones are chemically processed from precursors found in yams or soy plants. Synthetic patented, conventional, or artificial hormones have been chemically altered and are not identical in structure, or activity, to the naturally occurring hormones that they are intended to replace. Structural differences that exist between synthetic, or animal, and human hormones can be responsible for side effects that are experienced when using traditional, non-bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Why Choose Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Unlike conventional, commercial prescriptions, bioidentical hormones at Allcare Compounding Pharmacy are custom-tailored to each individual patient. These hormones are a total therapy program, designed to naturally establish a complete hormonal balance in a woman’s body.
Types of Hormones Dispensed at Allcare Pharmacy & Healthcare Services
Estrogen, progestrone, and testosterone are three types of hormones typically dispensed for natural hormone replacement therapy. Prescriptions for estrogen replacement are compounded with bioidentical estrogens in the proper ratios which women need. Many women find that adding progesterone helps relieve depression, mood swings, anxiety, and water retention. Natural progesterone is greatly valued in preventing and reversing osteoporosis. The option of adding natural progesterone to increase sexual desire, energy levels, and a general feeling of well-being is one chosen by many women.
The achieved results are obtained without the side effects of synthetic chemicals, or added animal derived products, giving the patient relief of undesirable symptoms. These hormones are available in a variety of forms including capsules and topical creams.
Goals of Natural Hormones
The primary goal of natural hormones is to:
- Re-establish a hormonal balance that is identical to your own body’s hormones. Alleviate the symptoms caused by a natural decrease in production of hormones in the body.
- Give the protection benefits which were originally provided by naturally occurring hormones.
