Good News About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy!
Women in West Palm Beach need to know the good news about bioidentical hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been proven to be a safe and effective method to treat the most uncomfortable symptoms of menopause.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or “BHRT,” is the culmination of everything doctors have learned about the best and safest way to provide hormone replacement to women in West Palm Beach and the surrounding areas.
Beginning in the late 1950s, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was a breakthrough treatment providing women real relief for the first time from the most debilitating symptoms of menopause, such as night sweats, mood swings, and hot flashes. HRT continued to be the choice for menopause treatment through the 60s and the ensuing decades.
However, in the 1990s, HRT began to fall out of favor. This was largely due to the results of a large-scale, multi-year study known as the Women’s Health Initiative or WHI. The researcher with WHI claimed to have discovered an increased risk of developing breast cancer and heart disease from using HRT.
Women began to fear hormone replacement, and doctors prescribed it less. However, there is good news for women in West Palm Beach suffering from menopause. We now know that most of the methodologies used in the WHI were flawed, and the data has been discredited.
Plus, doctors have learned much more about HRT in the nearly three decades since WHI was published. One of those lessons is the discovery and use of custom-compounded bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are derived from all-natural sources and are made to be exact duplicates – molecule-for-molecule – of the sex hormones normally produced by a woman’s own body.
Therefore, they are safer, better tolerated, and have fewer side effects than the synthetic hormones used in studies like the WHI that purported to show that HRT was harmful to women. Plus, since bioidentical hormone therapy is custom compounded, it can be prescribed on an extremely individual basis with a dose worked out specifically for your symptoms by our doctors and pharmacists.
This is another huge advantage of bioidentical hormones over the synthetic hormones used in traditional HRT. Those drugs are only available in limited dosages manufactured by big pharmaceutical companies.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the safest and most effective form of HRT for women in West Palm Beach suffering the most debilitating symptoms of menopause.
