Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, BHRT & HRT

What is a hormone?

Hormones are tiny chemical messengers continuously secreted into the blood stream by endocrine glands to regulate activities of vital organs. The word, hormone, is derived from a Greek word meaning, "to stimulate”. Hormones stimulate a multitude of life-giving processes throughout the body, which maintain health, harmony, growth, healing, and repair.

Natural Hormones

They are called natural because they are derived from plant compounds and other sources that have the exact chemical composition as the ones the human body produces. The term "bio-identical" denotes natural hormones that are chemically synthesized in the lab to be identical to the endogenous hormones of the human body.

Synthetic hormones

The difference resides in the origin of the hormone. Synthetic hormones are synthetically manufactured or altered, they are derived from the urine of pregnant mares and then manipulated in its molecular structure in the lab. That slight difference makes a big difference on how the patient feels.

Many medical studies have found that when synthetic hormones are administered the body does not know what to do with it, which is what we believe accounts for many of the side effects. Conversely, if you give a supplement identical to what the body produces, in the correct amount; it appears to know exactly how to use it in a healthful way,”

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy or corrective therapy BHRT

is the use of small supplemental doses of steroid hormones with a chemical structure identical to endogenous human hormones (hormones naturally produced in the human body) such as estradiol, estrone, estriol, that decline in production as we age.
