Bio Identical Hormone Optimization
A bio identical hormone has a chemical structure that is identical to the hormone naturally produced by the body. We refer to them as NATURAL because they are natural to the human body. Natural hormones cannot be patented by drug companies. Synthetic hormones have a structure similar to, but not exactly the same, as a hormone produced by your body. These chemical differences mean that the synthetic hormone acts differently and produces substantially different effects. Natural (bio identical) and synthetic hormones should not be considered the same or used interchangeably. They are entirely different. A multitude of studies have demonstrated many harmful effects of synthetic hormones whereas the medical literature supports no harmful effects of natural hormones, only beneficial effects.
