Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, is a term referring to the use of hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy.
With a more natural approach to hormone therapy the medical industry has focused attention on bioidentical hormones, that is hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones we all make in our bodies. These bioidentical hormones are made from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is often called “natural hormone therapy” because bioidentical hormones act in the body just like the hormones we produce. Technically, the body can’t tell the difference between bioidentical hormones from the ones produced by ovaries. When taking a blood test the total estradiol reflects the bioidentical estradiol that has been taken as well as the estradiol your body makes.
This hormonal treatment process is not replacement but a therapy that optimizes hormone levels for well-being, anti-ageing and energy. Bio-identical hormones are used for low energy, chronic fatigue, symptoms of menopause and anti-ageing.
