VIDEO: What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Alternative to synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are exact replicas of the ones already being created by your body. This results in a more efficient and natural release of hormones allowing for better regulation.
As a San Diego bioidentical hormone doctor, Dr. Mark Stengler explains the difference between bioidentical and synthetic hormones and the benefits of using specific natural hormones that a person is deficient in. Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, Cortison, and thyroid hormones that are imbalanced can be treated with natural bioidentical hormones.
While diet and nutritional supplements can often be used, those with severe symptoms may need the support of natural bioidentical hormones. Dr. Stengler often treats women in menopause or men with low testosterone with natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
