The menopause is a difficult period of women’s lives, with a wide range of frustrating and embarrassing symptoms including hot flushes, anxiety, difficulty sleeping and more. These symptoms are simply a sign that your hormones are out of balance, with too much of some and not enough of others. By replacing your missing hormones, the symptoms disappear.
HRT and synthetic hormones have been prescribed by the medical profession for many years and work to reduce or stop the symptoms of menopause. However, recent studies have linked synthetic hormone replacement therapies to breast cancer, strokes and heart attacks, leaving people to look for an alternative.
Bio-Identical hormones mimic Estrogen and Progesterone produced by the body and are manufactured to the same molecular structure. They are extracted from soy and yams and are totally natural. Our bodies don't see the difference between the natural hormones that are supplemented and the hormones it produces itself, therefore the hormones are properly utilized and naturally metabolized and excreted from the body, for the desired results without the side-effects.
To use bioidentical hormones you need to have a few simple blood hormone tests to establish your hormone balance and where the deficiencies lie. After that the doctor will prescribe either a cream, or pills that will be specifically dosed to compensate for what is missing in your own body. Although little known in Spain they are growing in popularity throughout the world and endorsed by Oprah Winfrey and high profile health practitioners in the US.
