"We age because our hormones decline, our hormones do not decline because we age.”
Hormones are chemicals produced by our bodies that regulate the function of many organs, such as, the brain, heart, muscle, bones and sex organs. Hormone replacement therapy has been studied in depth, and supportive data is present in medical literature for the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormone is simply a hormone that is identical to a hormone produced in the human body. In contrast, non-bioidentical hormones are hormones that are synthetically modified, such as birth control pills or conjugated estrogen which comes from the urine of pregnant mares.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. In order for a replacement hormone to fully replicate the function of hormones that were naturally produced and originally present in the human body, the chemical structure must exactly match the original. Synthetic or animal hormones are structurally different from human hormones and are the cause of the side effects that are experienced when non bio-identical hormones are used for replacement therapy.
The goal of any hormone replacement therapy should be to provide an adequate supply of the deficient hormone in a form that is as close as possible to that which the body originally produced, therefore resulting in a normal physiologic effect.
Among its many benefits Bio-identical hormone replacement has been shown to
- Improve sexual function
- Increase lean muscle
- Reduce body fat
- Increase bone density

Bio-identical hormone replacement is a viable and effective treatment for a variety of undesirable symptoms associated with pre-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause. Bio-identical hormone replacement brings the body back to normal balance, thus relieving the symptoms that result from decreased hormone production. It imitates the body’s natural process, thereby alleviating must of the unwanted side effects of traditional synthetic hormones. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms you may be a candidate for hormone therapy:
Decreased sexual desire
Hot flashes/Night sweats
Around age 30-40, a man’s ability to produce testosterone begins to decline. This deficiency can result in a variety of undesirable symptoms that can include decreased sex drive, depression, loss of muscle mass, and increased fat mass, which drives the risk for diabetes and heart disease. Traditionally regarded as a mid-life crisis, this hormonal decline is now recognized as Andropause or male menopause.
Typical symptoms of low hormone levels include
Decreased sex drive
Impaired sexual function
Loss of muscle mass
Loss of strength
