Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is an effective all-natural therapy using hormones that are identical to the hormones made by your body. The goal of Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is to get your body back to the hormone levels it was initially designed to maintain. BHRT therapy is the alternative to synthetic hormones, such as injectable testosterone, or estrogen from horse urine (Premarin).
Bio-identical hormones are plant-based and natural, as opposed to synthetic hormones, which are completely foreign to the human body.
The pellet that we use is made up of 99.5% natural testosterone that comes from yams. Their structure is identical to that of the human body. The other 0.5% of the pellet is composed of steric acid that allows the testosterone to hold together and to dissolve slowly when placed. This identical-ness is the major differentiator between bio-identical and synthetic hormones.
This is important! It negates any chance of dangerous side effects. Because these hormones are “bio-identical” to your body’s structure so it won’t react against it. Unlike synthetic hormones that present dangerous consequences, BHRT is safe and effective.
This means that the body recognizes bio-identical hormones as itself. This is critical. Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses drugs whose structure and nature are foreign to the human organism. Hormones, then, are not drugs. Hormones are molecules produced by our own glands and so do not come with the undesirable side effects of traditional hormone drugs—as long as the hormones prescribed are identical to those made by the body.
