Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy-old

Conventional medicine has always held the belief that aging is inevitable and that the progressive deterioration that occurs in our adult years cannot be altered. We have also been led to believe that the diseases of aging, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and senility, are all a part of the normal aging process. This is simply not true. There have been emerging and revolutionary developments in science and medicine that identifies hormone replacement as preventative medicine. The most effective solution of any disease process is prevention of that disease in the first place.
As men and women age, hormone levels in the body go down. This can lead to certain symptoms that impact the quality of life. Hormone deficiencies affect every cell in the body and result in degenerative changes and the aging process as well as symptoms of aging. Bringing hormone levels back to levels we had in our youth is beneficial to both our health and quality of life. By replenishing these levels, we can reverse many of the unfavorable effects that begin to appear as we age. This will lead to increased longevity by preventing the illnesses that usually lead to our demise. However, most importantly is the fact that our quality of life in our later years will be significantly enhanced.

Bioidentical vs Synthetic Hormones

All hormones are not created equal. Synthetic hormones have a structure similar to but not exactly the same as a hormone produced by your body. They are associated with several serious health conditions, including endometrial cancers, blood clots, heart attack, abnormal liver function, and pancreatitis. Additionally, they generally take longer for the body to accept and process. While the above complications are uncommon, many people do experience common side effects like nausea and muscle cramping. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based compounds that have a chemical structure that is identical to the hormone naturally produced by the body. 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.
