Unlike pharmaceutical hormones, bioidentical hormones are made from plant derivatives. Wild Yam and soy are often used as the base to create bioidentical hormones, especially for women. Bioidentical hormones are still made in a laboratory, but are derived from a unique, nature based formulation. A bioidentical hormone is similar to the hormones that your body would create on its own. Because of this, any side effects are can be greatly reduced, and sometimes eliminated altogether.
Unfortunately pharmaceutical hormones cannot make the same claim. In fact, the National Institutes of Health conducted a study entitled “Women’s Health Initiative Postmenopausal Hormone Therapy Trials,” that indicated a synthetic pharmaceutical blend of estrogen and progesterone resulted in a heightened risk for women to experience heart attack, stroke, blood clots, breast cancer and colorectal cancer. The same study showed that women given estrogen alone did not experience any increased risk for these health problems.
In an attempt to discredit Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, there have been a number of fear campaigns which capitalize on the fact that the government does not directly regulate bioidentical hormones because they are a natural, rather than pharmaceutical product.
Rather than providing a valid argument against this breakthrough treatment, these campaigns have simply underscored the importance of receiving treatment from a reliable health care provider, rather than buying it over the Internet. Receiving Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy from a qualified professional ensures that your treatment will be supported with a full medical exam with blood tests, and that the effectiveness of the product and dosage will be closely monitored.
