What are bio-identical hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are made from one of two natural ingredients; Mexican Wild Yam or Soy.  They are created to be chemically identical to the structure of the human body’s natural hormones and exert the same positive effects as natural human hormones.  Bio-identical hormones have been safely used in clinical practices worldwide for over 20 years and are often compounded and customized to an individual’s needs.  Synthetic, non bio-identical hormones were developed and patented by pharmaceutical companies.  In order to patent a drug for hormone replacement therapy, the hormone molecule must be unlike any found in nature.  Since they are unlike your body’s natural hormones they can cause undesired side effects such as an increased risk of breast cancer.   Please join me next week on August 14th, 2014 at 2pm, at Compounding Solutions located at 115 Pelham Rd. Ste. 12, Greenville, SC 29615 as we discuss safe and effective ways of naturally replacing your hormones.
