Get Your Hormones To Optimal Levels

Chances are that you’re more than just curious about how your hormones may be affecting your health. Perhaps you’ve been feeling run down, tired or just not yourself and are curious if it has something to do with your hormones—or, you may already know you have a hormonal issue impacting your quality of life, and you’re looking for answers and solutions.

You’re in the right place. The Center for Hormone Health was specifically created to help people understand what an important role hormones play in everyday life and then give people the tools to get back on track.

There’s a lot of information out there on hormones and hormone replacement therapy, so we’d like to provide a little clarity.

Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy vs. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Traditional, or synthetic hormones are derived from plant progesterone and animal estrogens, but are not identical to the hormones your body uses. In many cases, an extra chemical bond or molecule is added so that it can be patented. While synthetic hormones provide relief to some symptoms, they act as toxins because their chemical makeup cannot be metabolized properly. They will also, over time, cause secondary adverse effects that may compromise your health.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as natural hormone therapy, refers to the use of hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, with endogenous hormones (hormones produced in the body). Therefore, they are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body.

The difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones is that, although both are created in labs, synthetic hormones are not identical to the hormones naturally created in your body and bioidentical hormones match your body's hormones molecule by molecule. Additionally, bioidentical hormones allow your body to continue producing hormones on its own so that you don’t develop a dependence on them.

At the Center for Hormone Health, when you sign up for our Bioidentical Testing and Consultation program, we assess your body’s hormonal needs and then will help you get your hormones to optimal levels through bioidentical hormones.
