What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are identical in structure and function to the ones made in the human body, and they are usually compounded from sources such as soy or wild yams. When the hormones are taken into the body, the body can recognize and more easily metabolize them. Because of their identical structure, they can reduce the risks of health threatening side effects. Bioidentical hormones are a vital part to Dr. Pederson’s programs.
Men and women of all ages can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Several illnesses can occur from hormonal imbalances, which can be caused due to aging, environmental factors, stress, lack of exercise, and a poor diet. Most men and women experience hormonal imbalances when they reach their forties and fifties, and perimenopause, menopause, and andropause are the syndromes that occur due to hormonal deficiencies. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapies can restore these deficient hormones and the symptoms that occur due to hormonal deficiencies. Some of the issues that can arise from hormonal imbalances may include:
- Hot Flashes
- Weight Loss Resistance
- High Cholesterol
- Low Libido
- Irregular Periods
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Hair Loss
- Mood Swings
