Bio-identical vs. Synthetic Hormones
The debate still rages over treatment with synthetic pharmaceutical hormones versus the natural bio-identical hormones. On April 21, 2009, Dr. Phil addressed the importance of managing women’s hormone levels with Bio-Identical Hormones vs. synthetic.
Bio-identical hormones are made with the same molecular structure as the hormones in your own body. Synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Pharmaceutical companies can’t patent a bio-identical structure, so they invent synthetic hormones that are patentable like Premarin™, Prempro™ and Provera™.
Hormone therapy with natural, bio-identical hormones has been proven time after time to promote a better quality of life. Check with us to find out if you are a candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
