Bioidentical hormones are defined as compounded hormones that are very similar to the hormones that naturally produced by the human body. These are used as treatment for men and women whose own hormones are low or out of balance.
As we age, our natural hormones such as thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, progestrone, DHEA and growth hormones need to get boosted back to appropriate levels that are necessary for our youthful health, vigour, illness prevention and stress reduction.
Our hormones are either proteins or cholesterol derivatives, that are secreted (usually into the bloodstream) by a collection of glands inside our body. When an organ ages or degenerates, the levels of hormones diminish, causing receptor sites to become less receptive to hormones. Whether the problem is having low hormones or less receptive receptor sites, the solution is optimal hormone replacement.
In Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy (BHRT), the molecules of hormones are identical in structure to the hormones naturally found in the body. Natural hormones in BHRT are either extracted from plants or synthetically compounded in compounding pharmacies. Compounding pharmacies compose the doses based on the order form, prescribed by the doctor following a blood test.
While commercially available synthetic/chemical hormones may have a similar structure to the hormones produced in your body, they are not exactly the same. Therefore, BHRT and synthetic hormones should not be considered the same or used interchangeably.
The purpose of BHRT is to simply replenish the hormones that already occur naturally in our body and boost them back up to the appropriate medically sound levels necessary to maintain your body in a healthy state.
