The term bio-identical designates hormones that are synthesized to be identical to those your body makes. This sets them apart from the synthetic compounds meant to mimic natural hormone function, such as medroxyprogesterone (Provera) and conjugated equine estrogen (Premarin). Testosterone and other hormones such as DHEA and oxytocin are also available as bio-identical formulations.
Bio-Identical does NOT mean that the hormones are “natural”. Bio-Identical hormones are synthesized via pharmaceutical production methods like other drugs but have the same exact structure to your body’s own hormones. “Natural” implies a source from nature such as soy, which while similar in structure, is NOT the same.
It is possible to change the way you look and feel with the help of bioidentical hormone therapy. The bioidentical hormone therapy specialists at East-West Health Centers can help turn back your body’s biological clock and leave you feeling better than you have in many years.
Menopause is something that all women must face. While women usually reach menopause by the age of 50, many go through this biological change at a younger age. Women who utilize bioidentical hormone replacement therapy obtain relief from menopause symptoms because it not only makes them feel better, but also it makes them look younger. The benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy are immeasurable to women in menopause. Bioidentical hormone therapy treatments administered at East-West Health Centers Health in Denver will help ensure women remain in control of their blood pressure and weight.
