What does “Bio-Identical” mean?
Bioi-dentical hormones have the exact same molecular structure as hormones that are made by our bodies.
What makes Bio-identical hormones different from prescription hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are identical to the naturally occurring hormones found in the human body. Conversely, the molecular structure of synthetic hormones is one that is never manufactured by the human body. As a result, synthetic hormones have cautions, warnings and side-effects associated with their medicinal use. It is vital, therefore, that you fully educate yourself of the known risks prior to taking synthetic hormones.
Why choose Bio-Identical Hormone therapy?
The goal of Bio-identical Hormone replacement therapy is to provide an adequate supply of the deficient hormone(s) in a form that is safe and in harmony with your body.

So, why don’t doctors typically recommend using Bio-Identical hormone therapy?
The use of natural, bio-identical human hormones is not taught in most medical schools. Medical schools have adopted the belief, propagated by the drug companies, that the medical problems of aging can be treated with drugs or surgery.
As a result they do not always teach future physicians wellness by addressing the cause of the disease rather than symptoms. Hysterectomies and mastectomies being just two examples.
For these very reasons, informed women have chosen to take charge of their health care decisions and, when appropriate, incorporate safe, alternatives that are free of documented side-effects associated with traditional medicine.
