WHAT ARE BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONES
Bio-identical hormones are manufactured to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. They are produced from plants, like soybean or yam. The goals of Bio-Identical Hormones are to alleviate the symptoms caused by decreased hormone production and to bring the body back to hormonal balance, by adding them to your own ones.
Bio-identical hormones are derived from natural plant resources, primarily wild Mexican yam and soybean. These plants are chemically synthesized in a laboratory into exact replicas of human hormones. The hormones are then carefully and accurately formulated by a highly trained compounding pharmacist. This process allows the pharmacist to custom prepare prescription applications based on the individual patient’s needs. There is no “one size fits all” as with synthetic HRT.

The most common hormones balanced are the major sex steroids. These hormones include: DHEA, estradiol, estriol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone, DHT and cortisol. Other hormones such as Human Growth Hormone (HGH), insulin level and melatonin can be also accurately measured and balanced with physiological prescribed dosages.
Prescription bio-identical hormones can be prepared in a number of applications, the most common being a trans-dermal cream. This hypo-allergenic base cream is applied to the inner arm and/or inner-thigh area much like you would apply any regular lotion.
Other available bio-identical hormone applications include sublingual drops, oral capsules, troches and vaginal creams. Testosterone replacement for men and women is always formulated in a physiological dosed trans-dermal gel.
