Bio-identical hormones are substances that are identical to the hormones produced naturally by the body. Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. These bio-identical substances can replace estradiol, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone, and others when our bodies cannot generate sufficient quantities of these essential hormones. In addition to treating sex hormones, we also treat thyroid, adrenal, pancreatic, and other hormones.
By replacing the natural hormones your own body is unable to make, Bio-identical Hormones can help all your body’s systems operate as needed. Hormones have a variety of functions, including:
Development and growth
Metabolism of food items
Sexual function and reproductive growth and health
Cognitive function and mood
Maintenance of body temperature and thirst
