There is a growing interest in more natural approach to hormone therapy via bioidendical hormones. Rather than being synthetic compounded versions of your hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from natural forms that are found in plants or animals and are created specifically for you to address your needs.
The term “bioidentical” means the hormones in the product are chemically identical to those your body produces. In fact, the hormones in bioidentical medications may not be any different from those in traditional hormone therapy. They are however much more flexible in their modes of delivery, dosage, and combinations, and can be taken as capsules for example and do not all have to be in an injection form.
