What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
As we age, hormone production slowly starts to decline. This is followed by a decline in health and function. Most hormones are designed to be present throughout life, even if their levels are slowly reduced. However, estradiol and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men (to a slightly lesser degree), decline dramatically at menopause and andropause respectively. Estrogen and progesterone in women, stop being produced at menopause. Testosterone levels significantly decline in aging men. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are key components of good health. These hormones fall into the category of steroid hormones. Changing even a single atom on a hormone molecule will change its unique nature. Pharmaceutical companies change the molecular structure of a hormone so it can be patented. A manipulated hormone becomes unpredictable. If we are replacing an important hormone that was once made by the body, we should replace it with a hormone of the exact same molecular structure (bioidentical), not one that has been manipulated (synthetic) so it can be patented. Synthetic hormones do not have the exact same properties as their bioidentical counterparts. Bioidentical hormones do not need to be FDA approved (unless they are given intravenously). Many manufacturers of synthetic hormones like the public to be misled into believing synthetic hormones are better because they are FDA approved. Synthetic hormones need to be FDA approved, because they are artificial. Bioidentical hormones occur naturally in the human body; therefore, they do not need to be regulated by the FDA. Bioidentical hormones do not get studied, because there is no financial incentive in producing them. We know they are safe, because the human body makes them.
