Menopause and bioidentical hormones

What is Menopause and Bioidentical Hormones?

A woman is said to be menopausal when there has been no period for the past 1 year. Before that, many women may go through a period, termed as the climacteric, when she may experience hot flushes, palpitations, insomnia, mood swings, dryness of skin and genital areas, difficulty in concentration, etc. This is because the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, are on its decline. Besides keeping our reproductive organs functioning, these hormones also have a part to play in our general well-being. A healthy lifestyle can go a long way in keeping our mind and bodies strong. However, for some, that may not be enough to help us through that period. If quality of life is affected, hormone replacement can be considered.

Natural hormone replacement therapy means that the chemical make up of the replacement hormone is exactly the same as what the human body produces. These natural hormones do not have the side effects of the synthetic HRT drugs. The bio-identical hormones can be administered either through creams applied on skin or troches(lozenges) placed under the tongue. This is natural hormonal therapy tailored just for you as an individual, according to your needs.
