Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Hormones affect almost every function in the body, including digestion, energy, sleep, blood pressure, metabolism, and even our mood. When hormones are in balance, life feels good because the body is working the way it was designed to do so. But when they are out of balance, that’s when symptoms start to set in, including chronic fatigue and weight gain.
Just as the name implies, bioidentical hormones are hormones that are identical to human hormones, all the way down to the molecular level. When the natural balance of hormones is disrupted, bioidentical hormones can be prescribed to assist our bodies in restoring proper function.
Bioidentical hormones can be given to support the adrenals, thyroid, and sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone). When we use bioidentical hormones along with a lifestyle change and the proper nutrition, the results are miraculous.
Most prescription medicines are not bio-identical because drug companies can only patent a chemical that they invented. These artificial hormones are shown to create numerous side effects, and The Lancet publication of the Million Women Study showed that taking non-bioidentical hormones can increase cancer by as much as 30 percent.
At Whole Body Health, we care for our patients by prescribing only the safest and most natural hormones to assist people struggling with hormonal failure. Through extensive testing and accurate salivary hormone panels, we are able to prescribe just the right dosage to help you achieve physiological balance.
