Bioidentical hormones are defined as plant-based hormones from another source that are very similar to human body hormones. These are used to treat men and women whose own hormones are out of balance or low.
Hormones are special chemicals produced by our body parts: glands, ovaries in females, and testicles in males. They are messengers who tell the other parts of the body what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. All the tasks of body controlled by hormones. These include the breakdown of food and brain function. Symptoms may occur if hormones are out of balance.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
When the hormone levels decrease or unbalance, BHRT can be used to treat men and women. It is used to combat menopause and perimenopause symptoms frequently.

The most commonly used for treatment are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. We offer estrogen and testosterone pellets that are inserted under the skin, and we can prescribe progesterone pills.
Subcutaneous bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses bioidentical hormones derived from natural, plant-based substances as an alternative to artificial hormone replacement therapies. The structure of bio-identical hormone– estrogen, testosterone or both –closely match of each individual patient needs.
Because these hormones are derived from nature, they metabolize the body in the same way as nature intends.
Synthetic, mass hormones are composed of artficial (synthetic) hormones or horse urine in a laboratory. The hormones are synthetic. To order to patent these formulas, manufacturers INTENTIONALLY produce synthetic hormones that differ slightly from natural human hormones.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with natural plant pellet implants has been performed since the 1930s by health practitioners. After study reveal that natural hormones may be safer, the number of practitioners who provide pellet therapy has increased.
