Living Even Better With Bioidentical Hormones

Living Even Better With Bioidentical Hormones

When it comes to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause, there are many questions: Is it safe? Will it work? Is it just a pill?  What are bioidentical hormones?

Searching for answers can be daunting. And it’s not because there’s a shortage of information, it’s because there are so many reports and they can seem to contradict each other.

The bottom line: “…experts do agree that the benefits of hormone therapy outweigh the risks for healthy women younger than age 60 or within 10 years of their last period,” according to Mayo Clinic: The Menopause Solution, published in 2016. Women over 60 can be treated with HRT, writes the author, Stephanie Faubion, M.D., director of the Mayo Clinic’s Office of Women’s Health, but they must carefully weigh the severity of their symptoms against any increased risks of health issues.

Bioidentical hormones hold promise for even safer hormone replacement therapy. A study published in the January 2009 issue of Postgraduate Medicine reports: “physiological data and clinical outcomes demonstrate that bioidentical hormones are associated with lower risks, including the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease.”

Synthetic HRT comes in a variety of forms – patches, gels, and creams. But bioidentical hormones offer a longer lasting and safer delivery system: time-released pellet implants. The tiny pellets, smaller than a grain of rice, duplicate the exact molecular structure of the human hormone. They also are available in variable dosages. And the inserts are convenient – the pellets last about three months, so you don’t have to remember to take a pill every day.

Since medical experts say HRT is very effective and its benefits outweigh the risks for healthy women under 60, women have a real chance of improving their quality of life through prescription HRT. Bioidentical hormones in pellet form provide replacement therapy in a consistent, personalized dosage that comes in a molecular form that matches the human body.
