Bioidentical Hormone Doctors use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to help men and women overcome the effects of age related hormonal decline. As men and women age, the endocrine system, which is the system in the body that produces hormones, begins to decline, and this reduction in hormone secretion leads to numerous health concerns.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Recently, Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has come to the forefront of anti-aging medicine, and it has revolutionized the way that men and women experience aging. As aging occur, several important hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone, and thyroid hormone begin to decline. Because these hormones control a multitude of functions, lower levels of any essential hormone can lead to disastrous health implications.
Previously, all forms of hormone replacement therapy involved the use of hormones that were made from animals and that were not identical to human hormones, but bioidentical hormones have changed the way that hormones are replaced. Bioidentical hormones are identical in chemical and molecular structure to the human body, and for this reason, the body can more easily metabolize them. Their identical nature and exactness to human hormones makes them recognizable to the body, which minimizes side effects.
