Aging is Aging, Right ?
It is, if you listen to conventional wisdom.
Aging is mainly due to the progressive appearance of hormone deficiencies aggravated by nutritional deficiency, poor lifestyle and inflammatory toxins.
Hormones: What are they? Why are they so important?
Hormones are biochemical compounds produced by various organs or glands of the body. Hormones are essential to life function. Without hormones, we really cannot survive. They control most aspects of all of our bodily processes. Without hormones, a woman cannot get pregnant. Without hormones, a man cannot get a woman pregnant. Without hormones, a child cannot grow. Without hormones, we cannot sleep. Without hormones, we cannot properly fight infection or the effects of stress. The list goes on.
Both Men and Women rely on a critical balance of hormones.
Bio-Identical hormones are plant-based, natural substances that our bodies can metabolize in the way it was designed to do, minimizing side effects.
By “bio-identical” we mean that the biochemical structure of the hormone is perfectly matched to the hormone produced in a human's body by her/his endocrine system. Bio-Identicals used in hormone replacement therapy are neither a horse’s hormone nor an artificially formulated (synthetic) that is intentionally manufactured to be slightly different from human hormone in order to patent it.
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Benefits for Women
Compared with other bio-identical hormone therapies available, BHRT using pellet implants can typically offer highly effective relief from some of the most common symptoms of menopause, as well as other concerns such as low bone density, disruption of sleep patterns, hot flashes, night sweats, low libido and reduced sexual response, depression, irritability, and more. In some cases, pellet therapy has been used to treat migraines and menstrual headaches, and it can also help to alleviate vaginal dryness, incontinence, and urinary frequency and urgency. Furthermore, some studies show pellet therapy can actually prevent Alzheimer’s disease-related dementia, and osteoporosis. Estrogen and testosterone therapy has been proven as brain, breast, bone, and heart protection for women.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefits for Men
Men often experience a decline in testosterone levels beginning in their early 30s. Some common symptoms of testosterone deficiency include weakening libido, difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection, reduction in mental acuity, fatigue, and several other concerns. Pellet therapy helps to increase hormones to optimal levels and then stabilize them. Additionally, pellet therapy is frequently able to diminish mood fluctuations, and it has been shown to offer preventive effects against cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and other age-related conditions.
Why are Bio-Identical Hormones the Safe Option?
In 2002, the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) completed a clinical trial on the effects of combination hormone therapy. This study led many people to fear that hormone therapy could cause breast cancer, stroke, and heart disease. Though some invaluable findings resulted from the tests, there were a number of important points that were not made widely known.
First, in the original study, a synthetic progesterone, called Provera, together with an estrogen derived from pregnant horse’s urine, called Premarin, were determined to be the main cause for concern. The combination, which was marketed together as Prempro, resulted in a 24 percent increase in risk for breast cancer and heart disease for the women who took the combined synthetic hormones.
The participants who were under 60 years of age during the trial and took only the estrogen showed no increased risk for either breast cancer or heart disease. In fact, after five years of estrogen-only therapy, the same women showed 61 percent less calcified plaque in the arteries—a common indicator of heart disease—than the women assigned to the placebo.
Secondly, it’s important to note, bio-identical hormones were not utilized in any of these clinical trials. No published study to date has indicated an increased risk between breast cancer or heart disease and bio-identical progesterone. On the contrary, studies have shown the opposite, with bio-identical testosterone having been shown to be brain, breast, bone, and heart protective.
Investigations into implantable, pellet-based testosterone therapy have measured a reduction in the rates of breast cancer occurrence, as well as increased protection from cancer. Twenty years after the studies began, there were no demonstrable increases in breast cancer risk and, even in the cases of breast cancer survivors, pellet-based bio-identical hormone replacement therapy did not show an increase in either cancer recurrence or death.
Contrary to the confusion and apprehension the WHI study initiated, the majority of researchers now recommend that men and women can and should take bio-identical hormones to safely and effectively treat symptoms stemming from menopause, perimenopause, and andropause.
What Is the Difference Between Synthetic and Bio-Identical Hormones?
Derived from natural plant sources, bio-identical testosterone and estrogen (estradiol) have the same molecular structure as the body’s naturally-produced hormones. This is important, because without the same chemical structure the body will respond to the synthetic hormone as a foreign entity and reject it. The body cannot efficiently metabolize synthetic hormones, leading to inconsistent results and the possible interference with normal hormonal function. This could also potentially lead to serious side effects, as was the case with the combination synthetic progestins that were specifically shown to have caused the increase in cancer occurrence during the WHI clinical study.
On the contrary, bio-identical hormones are not man-made and do not use animal products. Due to the similarity between bio-identical hormones and naturally-produced ones, the body interacts instinctively with them, as if the bio-identical hormones were developed in the ovaries like a key fitting properly in a lock.Clinical studies performed during the past decade have proven the superiority of bio-identical pellet therapy, and the remarkable impact it has had on the men and women who use it without the side effects of synthetic drugs.
The Importance of Testing:
When hormone imbalance is suspected, it is vitally important to properly test your hormone levels. Without testing, it is impossible to know what is going on with your hormones.
