What are Bio-identical Hormones ?
The term “bio-identical” means the hormones are chemically identical to the hormones produced by the human body.
Actually these hormones are derived from natural sources and then modified in a lab to match the chemical structure of human hormones .
Are your hormones out of balance?
In mid-life, people’s normal hormone levels decline and affect many areas of their health, including :
mood, metabolism and sexual and reproductive function .
The ideal process for achieving hormonal balance includes an assessment of hormone levels and complete evaluation of signs and symptoms, followed by replacement of the deficient hormones .
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:
- Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Post-partum depression

- Fibrocystic breasts
- Sleep disturbances
- Hot flashes
