A Natural Choice for Men and Women in Las Vegas

Structurally and functionally identical to human hormones, Bioidentical Hormones are a unique alternative to other forms of hormone replacement therapy; their identical nature allows them to be quickly accepted and used in the body. They fit like a lock and key with the body’s cell receptors, whereas non-identical hormones are often only partially recognized by the body. Because Bioidentical Hormones are an exact fit to cells and they mimic the body’s hormones, most patients do not experience unpleasant side effects.

Another positive aspect to Bioidentical Hormones is that they can be dosed to meet exact and specific needs. Previous forms of hormone replacement often prescribed the same dosage of a particular hormone to different patients with varying degrees of hormone imbalance. For example, a woman with a mild estrogen deficiency going through perimenopause may have received the same hormone dosage as a post-menopausal woman with a much greater deficiency. The excess estrogen would have put the woman with a mild estrogen deficiency at risk for estrogen dominance, and the insufficient dosage for the post-menopausal woman would not have been enough to reduce her symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, each person’s unique levels are taken into account so that the exact required amount of a hormone is prescribed.
