Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body that regulate all physical and emotional functions such as sleep, metabolism, growth, stress, and mood. When your hormones are balanced, they work in symphony, and you feel, look, and perform at your best. The main hormones that govern the female body include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid hormones. Our bodies require appropriate levels of hormones to function properly. Aging, our environment, diet, our genetics, and any number of conditions, can cause hormone imbalance. Some of the most common causes of hormone imbalance include menopause, pregnancy, and obesity.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is the medical practice of replacing hormones. Aging, as well as a myriad of other factors cause our hormones to become imbalanced which has a detrimental effect on our health not to mention our quality of life. You may have hot flashes, poor sleep, joint pain, low energy, and a declining libido which could be considered “normal” for your age. However, normal is not OPTIMAL. Getting old is normal, feeling old is optional. Hormone Replacement Therapy allows us to optimize our hormones as well as our health when combined with diet and exercise.
Bioidentical hormones are molecule for molecule the exact same ones your body produces making them very effective and safe. Bioidentical hormones come from a natural plant base and are structured to match our natural human hormones. Once created, they are compounded into various delivery methods which ensure maximal absorption by our body.
Bioidentical hormone replacement under our medical supervision is extremely safe. We only use bioidentical hormones at NuFemme Rejuvenation Clinic. This is in contrast to synthetic hormones as they have been shown to have negative health outcomes. Synthetic hormones are not natural and the body recognizes them as foreign. Much of the harm from synthetic hormones was demonstrated in the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 2002. This pivotal study showed that women who used synthetic estrogen and progestin had higher risks of breast cancer, coronary artery disease, stroke, and blood clots. These synthetic hormone preparations were made from pregnant horse mare urine. Unlike bioidentical hormones these preparations are identified as foreign substances to the body and furthermore cause these serious health problems. For these reasons, NuFemme Rejuvenation Clinic never uses synthetic hormones. NuFemme strives to ensure your health and safety by using the latest (BHRT) bioidentical hormone therapy technology.
