What is Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and how is it different from synthetic hormone replacement:
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement therapy has promising results in balancing hormones without the side effects when taken under supervision of a qualified physician.
Bio Hormones are extracts from Yams and Soy, these are not only natural but biologically identical to human hormones.
As we age our hormones decline and we begin to see the rise in chronic lifestyle diseases.
Chronic diseases rise as our hormones have receptors on each cell of our body and in the absence of hormones cellular function is not the same.
Synthetic hormones are derived from unnatural sources and do not mimic the natural hormones therefore cause host of side effects.
You can expect to feel better with improved moods, stamina, reduce anxiety and panic attacks etc.…A well designed hormone balancing plan will prevent PMS, Pre and post-Menopausal symptoms, sexual dysfunctions.
