Bioidentical Hormones — Are They A Good Fit For You?
While women have been treated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for years, only recently has bHRT exploded prominently into public awareness. The mainstream media has jumped on the story as personalities such as Oprah Winfrey, Suzanne Somers and Linda Evans went public with their experiences with bioidentical hormones.
Writing in the February 2009 issue of Oprah Magazine, Winfrey wrote, “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.”
Bioidentical Hormones Explained
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have been created to be indistinguishable from those made by our own bodies. Thus our bodies respond to them exactly as they would if the hormone had been released by our own endocrine system.
Why aren't all hormones made this way? The answer, in short, is profit. A treatment must be profitable — typically, patentable — to reach most doctor’s offices. Bioidentical hormones, being created by nature, not man, cannot be patented. Their low profitability means that relatively few doctors offer them.
We Understand That You Are Unique
In The Sexy Years, Suzanne Somers recounted how getting the care she needed wasn't necessarily easy. “Finding the right doctor is difficult,” she wrote. “Your gynecologist may not be the right person for you at this time.... If [menopause and hormones are] not her specialty, then you have to find a doctor who ‘gets it.’ ”
