Natural Hormones Replacement
What Are Natural Hormones?
Natural hormones, or otherwise known as bioidentical hormones are hormones that are molecularly identical to the hormones produced in our own bodies.
Our bodies don't see the difference between the natural hormones that are supplemented and the hormones it produces by itself. As a result, bio-identical hormones are properly utilized, and are then able to be naturally metabolized and excreted from the body. Giving you the benefits you need, without the side-effects that most people fear from synthetic hormone supplementation.
Many clinical studies substantiate the safety and efficacy of these “natural to the human body” hormones. And their 'fame' has been spread around the world by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Suzanne Somers, and tens of thousands of anti-aging doctors and their patients.
Why is Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (NHRT) Better Than the Standard Synthetic HRT?
Standard Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has developed a somewhat grim reputation over the past several years. That's mainly because of it's side-effects linked to breast cancer, heart attacks and stroke.
Here is a statement from the Life Extensions' White paper on Bioidentical Hormones:
"Numerous studies have demonstrated an increased risk of breast cancer with the use of non-bioidentical progestins.1, 5, 25-48 However, the use of bioidentical progesterone has not been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Quite the contrary, research has revealed that bioidentical progesterone decreases the risk of breast cancer."
But the main reasons why Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (NHRT) is better than the standard synthetic HRT is because there are no known side-effects from using NHRT. Plus synthetic hormones have a different structure than the hormones produced in our body.
Consider this just as a small example:
"Both Premarin® and Prempro® contain horse estrogen extracted from pregnant mares’ urine. Unlike bioidentical estrogen creams that provide the hormones found naturally in the human female body, horse estrogen contains equilin and other equine estrogens found exclusively in horses!", taken from Life Extensions white paper on Bioidentical Hormones
What Are the Benefits for You?
The use of bioidentical hormone therapy has increased during the last several years as women have sought out a more natural approach to restoring hormonal balance.
The benefits you get will vary depending on the severity of your problem, and the type of problem you're treating.
For example – if you're treating menopausal symptoms you will see relief from hot flushes. You'll notice how you don't feel tired anymore. The brain fog you may be experiencing usually – will lift to be replaced with a lot more balanced disposition…
In her O magazine, Oprah Winfrey described the effects like this:
"After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift. After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step."
If you are receiving thyroid hormone therapy you will notice that you're no longer feeling extreme hot or cold. Your bowel movements become more regular, and you may even alleviate depression.
A word of warning though. Regardless of what hormones you decide to supplement with, you MUST do it under careful doctor's supervision. Hormones are a very powerful thing, and can create as much problems as benefits, if they're not administered properly.
