Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, can help relieve menopause symptoms, revitalize health and restore focus. However, there is a lot of scary misinformation out there about HRT. As a Doctor of Internal Medicine and hormonal health specialist, I can assure you that many of the studies quoted were flawed. Numerous studies from Europe and around the world show that certain forms of HRT are not only safe, but also help reduce risk factors for many diseases. That’s why I only use and recommend bio-identical HRT for my patients.
Bio-identical hormones come from natural, plant-derived compounds that have the same molecular structure as those made by the human body. Unlike synthetic hormones, our bodies can readily recognize and metabolize bio-identical hormones at the site of application or implant. Bio-identical hormone dosages are also compounded and optimized to the specific needs of the individual, rather than mass produced in a limited number of dosage amounts. Synthetic hormones must be metabolized in the liver, which can cause many adverse effects. Bio-identical hormones are safer, more effective and unlike synthetic pharmaceuticals, they simply replace the hormones your body is lacking. Get your hormone levels checked, and work with your doctor to decide what form of HRT is right for you.
