Hormones are not drugs. They are natural substances that are vital to your health. As you age, your hormone production progressively decreases – which leads to, and accelerates the aging process and the onset of age-related diseases. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy restores your body to its youthful levels of hormones.
Drug manufacturers have created synthetic hormones that attempt to mimic natural hormone function – yet are structurally different enough from natural hormones to be patentable. Such synthetic hormones often produce many desirable effects, but more often than not, also produce undesirable or negative side effects – such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, weight gain and possibly cancer.
Natural hormones possess the identical structure and function as substances created by our bodies – and produce all the desirable effects without any of the undesirable or negative side effects associated with synthetic hormones. We prescribe only Bio-Identical hormones because of our commitment to your total well-being.
