WHAT ARE BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONES?
Bio-Identical hormones are hormones compounded by a specialty pharmacy that are derived from plant base molecules. These hormones are more in touch with your body and the idea behind is that they are as similar as possible to your own. These hormones are dose different from patient to patient until results are achieved. In my opinion bio-identical hormones are superior to synthetic hormones due to the personalize dosage and the use of Estriol(E3) the pregnancy estrogen which has been proven very safe and effective.
WHAT IS HORMONE THERAPY?
Hormone therapy is the science of optimizing or replacing hormones that the body no longer produces. The experience of the physician combined with proper testing is crucial for the therapy to be successful. Bio-identical hormones are helpful to stop menopausal symptoms: hot flashes, low sex drive, insomnia, fatigue, depression, muscle and bone loss. The idea is to get the body back to the earlier years in which hormones where working in perfect harmony.
WHAT HORMONES ARE USED IN HORMONES?
Bio-Identical of DHEA, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone and Testosterone are used on treatments. These hormones are as similar as possible to human hormones.
HOW LONG BEFORE YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE RESULTS?
While this varies with each person, some people feel results in weeks to months, depending on the type of deficiency and compliance from the patient.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO BE ON THESE THERAPIES?
You should give your program at least four to six months to see significant benefits. Most patients will experience benefits before three months and continue to see improvement beyond that time. You should remain on the program for as long as you want to optimize your health.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I STOP THE PROGRAM?
Should you stop the program, your body will simply return to its normal state before taking hormones.
