Hormones are undoubtably one of the most important things to a women's overall sense of health and wellness. In many ways they help to make women who they are. This is why maintaining a healthy balance is extremely important to their sense of happiness and wellbeing.
Why use bio-identicals?
There are times in a women's life when her natural hormone level can get disrupted. These stages typically include during pregnancy, post-pregnancy, peri-menopause and post-menopause. Some women do not notice a change at these times, but others unfortunately do, and often it is a result of these hormone levels being too high or too low.
Common symptoms include: Anxiety, depression, hair loss, hot flashes, night sweats, problems sleeping and difficulty losing weight - especially around the abdomen or midline. If this is you, then read on for information on a treatment that might be very helpful to you!
What are bio-identicals?
These are hormones that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones we produce in the body and exert the same effect on hormone receptions. Therefore they can be very effective at balancing hormones that are to low in the body. Bio-identical progesterone is extracted and derived from wild yam and made into a cream form or vaginal suppositories.
