Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormone imbalances can handicap a person's lifestyle if not treated properly, but sometimes the treatment can be worse than the problem itself due to violent or even life threatening side effects of the medications prescribed. This is the case with synthetic hormones, which have been proven to be very risky because it is alien to the body composition. Bio-identical Hormone Therapy was developed as a natural alternative, matching the body's composition for treating hormone imbalances. Dr. Cindy Hall has embraced this emerging treatment and discovered tremendous success with its therapies for her perimenopausal and menopausal patients.


What is Bio-identical Hormone Therapy?

Bio-identical means identical to biology, so, Bio-identical Hormone Therapy is a treatment consisting of the application of supplemental hormones that are chemically and molecularly identical to the hormones found in your body, to achieve proper balance. In this therapy, hormones are taken from natural sources like soy or wild yam plants, or animals like pigs or horses, then molecularly manipulated in a laboratory to exactly match human hormones, making them easier to assimilate and use by the body since it has the right enzymes to classify and metabolize them properly. This results in fewer side effects than what are typical with synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are tailored to your body; ingredients are mixed in individual doses to meet your specific needs based on your symptoms and are adjusted until your hormones are balanced and symptoms disappear.


What is the difference between Bio-identical Hormone Therapy and Synthetic Hormone Therapy?

The synthetic hormone therapy operates on the opposite principle of the Bio-identical Hormone Therapy and the hormones are different. Synthetic hormones' molecular structure is completely different from the human one, in fact, these hormones are stronger than ours, making them unrecognizable for the body and more difficult to absorb, turning them into a risk source for violent side effects and even some types of cancer. The Bio-identical Hormone Therapy allows hormones to more efficiently interact with human tissues and other hormones in your body.


Is Bio-identical Hormone Therapy safe?

Many studies have been performed to prove this therapy's safety, making it clear that it is much safer than synthetic hormone therapy. Administered at the right dose, these hormones are very beneficial both short-term and long-term. They have proven to effectively lessen all symptoms related to menopause disorders and also prevent conditions like osteoporosis, migraines, Alzheimer's, dementia and hair loss, among others. Bio-identical hormones are not FDA approved because they are tailored to every individual patient's symptoms making them hard to be tested for purity, potency and effectiveness. Dr. Hall as an early adopter of this therapy, is among a growing number of doctors who approve and recommend the use of bio-identical hormones based on their own experiences with the therapy in comparison to experiences using synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are not patentable due to their natural sources. They are sold by prescription only because they are mixtures, and manufactured by compound pharmacies. These pharmacies are legal and approved, but not controlled by the FDA. Bio-identical Hormone Therapy is a specialized field. Dr. Hall can provide expert treatment and keep close control during the treatment to assure your hormones are balanced
