Bioidentical hormone replacement is a type of therapy treatment that doctors will recommend if your body is not naturally producing enough hormones. Medical science has made great strides in recent years discovering the link between hormone levels and the prevalence of such age-related conditions such as high cholesterol, hypertension, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, atherosclerosis, and even some types of cancer. When a patient undergoes bioidentical hormone therapy, they’re having hormones introduced to their body that are so similar to those produced naturally that the body is unable to tell the difference. The result is a decrease in the occurrence and effects of many of these adult-onset diseases.
