With aging comes the natural diminishing of our body's production hormones; specifically the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone and progesterone. As a result, certain symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, forgetfulness, anxiety, sleep disruption, low libido, moodiness and weight gain and difficulty maintaining that muscle tone are the consequence of these diminishing hormones. These symptoms when intolerable, herald the need for "replacement" hormones to return the body back to its beautiful balance. Maintaining this balance is the goal of any type of hormone replacement therapy. Your choice is to return to your balanced state using naturally plant derived compounded bio-identical hormones or manufactured synthetic hormones.


Bio-Identical hormones are "plant derived hormones" prepared from precursors found in wild yam or soybean. They are compounded by specially trained pharmacists in a sterile environment (compounding pharmacy) to be identical to the hormones produced by the human body. They possess the exact chemical structure as hormones produced by the sex organs in the body. Therefore, the body reads them as familiar and they are readily received. 

Synthetic hormones are "artificial" and not found in nature. They are chemically altered substances and are NOT identical in structure or activity to natural human hormones. Because these hormones ARE altered, these alterations represent differences which may be responsible for the many of the undesired and often dangerous side effects associated with synthetic hormones. 

When "bio-identical" hormones are chosen, this choice ensures balancing utilizing hormones that are identical to those produced naturally by the organs in the body before these sexual endocrine organs began to age. The goal of bio-identical hormone therapy is to bring the body back to balance, to replace the hormones that are declining and to return the body to its optimal healthy prime.

The benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement are suggested in this list:

  • They are identical in structure to hormones the human body produces

  • They provide protective benefits that were originally provided by the body's naturally occurring hormones

  • They have far fewer unwanted effects than synthetic hormones
