Safe natural therapy to heal illness and improve well-being
Bioidentical hormones can ease a painful menopause transition, and you won’t need to take them forever. Levels of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone go into free-fall in the years leading up to menopause, causing symptoms that can include hot flashes/night sweats, vaginal dryness, mild depression, headaches, fatigue, brain fog, and urinary incontinence.
If you choose to restore your hormone levels, you want to use hormones that are identical to your own–hence the term “bioidentical” hormones. What we know for certain is that bioidentical hormones effectively relieve menopause symptoms. The ultimate goal when using bioidentical HRT is to replicate as closely as possible your hormone status when you were about fifteen years younger.
