Is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Safer Than Synthetics?
Is Natural, Bio-Identical, Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe or More Effective than the Synthetics?
Bio-Identical hormones are biologically identical in chemical and molecular structure to the hormones naturally occurring in the body. The building blocks for these bio-identicals lie in the unique compounds of wild yams, chemically crafted into exact replicas of our natural hormones, thus eliminating many of the risks and negative side effects. Studies demonstrate bioidenticals to be more effective and have greater health benefits when compared to synthetics.
In contrast, synthetic preparations are comprised of horse hormones that are foreign, causing the body to not recognize them normally, while treating them as toxins and increasing the risk of adverse reactions. In extreme cases synthetic hormones may trigger heart attacks, strokes or cause cancer.
Pellet therapy, the superior method of hormone delivery, automatically secretes hormones in the bloodstream in small amounts throughout the day. Whenever the body’s hormonal requirement increases due to mental or physical stress, the pellets are always available in correct amounts. No other delivery method can offer this consistency of hormones.
