Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is based on science. It is precise; individualized and works with the body in a way that the body recognizes.
Hormone replacement therapy should never be based on guesswork, trial and error, or a one size fits all dosage approach. The goal should be to reach hormonal balance over the long term to achieve the benefits everyone needs for healthy aging.
Contrary to popular beliefs, the effectiveness, health and safety of bio-identical hormone therapy has been studied since 1935. Bio-identical hormones have been used safely and effectively for decades without the negative side effects that synthetic hormones have always been known for and with far more benefits.
In the prime of your life, your body’s hormones work in perfect harmony with all of the body’s systems to keep you performing at your peak and living a healthy, vibrant life. However, when hormones become imbalanced as in menopause, andropause or after certain surgeries, that’s when the body may begin to fall apart. Metabolic Syndrome, Adult Onset Diabetes, Osteoporosis and a number of other aging – related diseases abound in a body that is out of hormone balance.
