Bio-identical hormones explained…

Bio-identical hormones explained…
One area of compounding that we are involved in is hormone restoration using bio -identical hormones . These are plant based and converted into the various hormones… progesterone, oestrogen, testosterone, pregnenolone, melatonin, thyroid hormone, DHEA to name a few!  

Bio -identical meaning just that … they are identified by our body’s as like our own so therefore fit into the body like a lock and key… this is different to synthetic hormones as they often have chemical groups attached so the fit is not as good and can affect the outcome (side effects/unwanted effects ).  However this is a conversation to have with your doctor to decide which treatment path suits your needs the best.
We can make hormone combinations that top up what you are lacking , and make them into a form (capsule/transdermal cream, gel, troche /lozenge /pessary/solution etc … )that will be absorbed the best giving you optimal treatment … which can be tweaked along the way ..  
it’s all about balance … customised combinations, as one size does not fit all.  
Call in for a chat and we can refer you to a doctor with a special interest in this area or work with your own GP. 
Our next blog will include hormone case studies .
