Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consists of supplemental doses of hormones that have a chemical structure identical to the hormones that the female human body naturally produces. These hormones are made from a natural substance and are biochemically identical to human hormones. These hormones are then compounded by a pharmacist to customized doses in a customized preparation.
Bioidentical hormones are uniquely made for each individual to meet the different needs of each woman. According to the Harvard Health Publications, since these hormones are offered in lower and unique doses, women report that these hormones are tolerated better since they are identical to the hormones in the body.
With new, innovative, and natural approaches towards hormone therapy, bioidentical hormone therapy has been a major focus in many women’s health studies. These hormones are completely identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies. They are synthesized from a plant chemical extracted from soy and yams, creating estrogens that are 17 beta-estradiol, estriol (form of estrogen that decreases at menopause), and estrone.
The woman’s body is incapable of distinguishing bioidentical hormones from the ones produced by ovaries. With any given blood test, the total estradiol reflects the bioidentical estradiol you’ve taken as well as the estradiol your body makes. These hormones allow estrogen levels to be monitored more precisely and allow for treatments to be individualized accordingly.
