Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Understanding Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

As we age, the body tends to produce less than optimal amounts of the hormones we would like. Sometimes there are external factors such as stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, or toxins that can affect the balance of our hormones. At Optimal Health & Wellness, our doctors can prescribe bio-identical hormone replacement therapy as well as address the underlying factors causing the changes to help you achieve your youthful balance.

From a physiological perspective, bio-identical hormones derived from natural plant sources are identical to those that the body produces for itself, in the right proportions. When we are “replacing” the body’s hormones, we feel it makes more sense to use entities which the body recognizes as its own, rather than hormones from horses, imbalanced versions or overly potent synthetic versions. The hormones we use are mainly Estradiol, Estriol, (E2, E3, respectively), progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA.
