What Are Bio-Identical Hormones, And Why Are They Better?

As we age, our bodies produce lower quantities of the hormones we need. This can significantly affect how you feel and how your body functions, especially in women. You may notice a lack of focus, motivation or libido. You may experience weight gain or loss of muscle.

So doctors have created a variety of hormone replacement therapies. Some use synthetic hormone compounds, or hormones taken from animals. At Body Symmetry MD, we believe in using natural hormones derived in a way so they are identical to the ones your body naturally produces.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), often referred to as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, involves the use of human-made hormones derived from plant estrogens, which are chemically identical to those produced in the human body. BHRT may also be administered in various forms, such as injections, pills, patches, creams and gels.

Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapies that use synthetic hormones or hormones derived from animals, BHRT is entirely natural. Studies have shown significant long term health benefits with natural hormone optimization, such as reducing the risks of diseases and unpleasant symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances.

At Body Symmetry MD, we provide BHRT treatment to people throughout Norcross, Roswell, Atlanta and the surrounding counties in Georgia. Each treatment is customized based on your age, your lifestyle, and your body’s needs. We do thorough assessments with blood analysis, health history evaluation, and your personal health and fitness goals.

The results can be dramatic.  With your hormones back in balance, you will quickly notice:

  • A heightened sense of well-being
  • Boosted energy levels
