Hormones are chemicals that are produced within our bodies. They are responsible for each stage of our development and growth from infancy through puberty, reproduction and old age. Hormones maintain the chemical balance within our bodies by controlling major functions including our metabolism, our immune system, our reproductive system, our nervous system, and others. As we age, our normal hormone levels begin to fluctuate and decline, which has physical and mental effects in both women and men.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The first hormone replacement supplements were developed in 1930 to provide relief from the symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, etc. These first hormone supplements were “bioidentical”. That is, their molecular structure is identical to the molecules created by our own bodies.
Synthetic hormone supplements were first developed in the 1940′s. Unfortunately, the mass-produced synthetic hormones do NOT match the molecular structure of the naturally occurring hormones in our bodies. Synthetic hormones are animal-derived, from the urine of pregnant horses, and often produce unpleasant side effects such as nausea, fluid retention, and dizziness.
Bioidentical Hormones are hormone supplements that are plant-derived, primarily from soy and yam. These are also manufactured by pharmaceutical companies such as Upjohn, which have been manufacturing Bioidentical Hormone products for over 70 years. The Bioidentical powders and other elements are then compounded into topical creams through “compounding” pharmacies, according to a doctor’s prescription.
Creams are preferred because when Bioidentical Hormones are taken orally they go straight to the liver, which converts them into a different hormone. Therefore the preferred method of delivery for Bioidentical Hormones is in the form of creams or gels or sub-cutaneous suppositories, which are absorbed directly from the skin into the bloodstream.
There are many benefits and advantages to using Bioidentical Hormones. One of the most important is that the dosage can be tailored to each individual’s unique hormone requirements. Hormone balance is extremely delicate, and each person is different. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy supports this individual approach and fine-tuning for optimal benefits.

- Increased weight loss
