Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy centers around giving your body access to the very hormones which your body lacks, often by a set schedule, either by giving you oral tablets (Natural Progesterone), creams, suppositories, injections or placing hormones in the form of tiny pellets (Testosterone and Estradiol) under the upper layer of your skin. Effective for both women and men for a myriad of menopausal and andropausal symptoms, the bio-identical hormones we use are created from a natural source, often soy or wild yams, and are structurally identical to the ones naturally created by our bodies, which means there are no ill side effects – such as those often experienced by patients when treated with earlier hormone substitutes.
