Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Bio-Identical hormone therapy is a menopause treatment that copies the molecular structure of the hormones our bodies produce. These replacement hormones are made from soy and yam extracts and can be processed and metabolized in the body in the same manner as the hormones we produce. Treatment with these replacement hormones reduce the side effects that are common to conventional hormone replacement therapies. Bio-identical hormone therapy is a safe and natural replacement for the hormones that our bodies lack during and after menopause, the absence of which can cause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, irritability and weight gain. However, hormone therapy is not the only solution to some of these symptoms and should only be used after natural remedies like diet, stress reduction and exercise fail to produce results.
