Bio Identical Hormones
With bioidentical hormone therapy by Woodlands Wellness, the goal to help you achieve optimal health is “hormonal balance”. We use a comprehensive blood test to determine which hormones your body is deficient in and which ones you have in excess. We then customize a program just for you!
Both men and women experience a dramatic change in their hormones, making bioidentical hormone replacement therapy necessary. For women, they enter “peri-menopause” approximately 10-15 years prior to the onset of menopause and their hormones slowly decline over time.
If you are still menstruating, symptoms may include mood swings, headaches, fluid retention, PMS, irregular cycles, heavy or irregular periods and breast tenderness.
Women have three different hormones in their body; Progesterone, Testosterone, and three types of Estrogen. All of these hormones are important to a female's well-being. After discovering which of the hormones are creating your symptoms, a customized plan is created to replenish decreasing hormones with bioidentical hormones.
All of our hormones decline at different levels. However, most women in this country today are estrogen dominant. They have very low levels of progesterone and testosterone with high levels of estrogen. This is largely caused by the additional estrogen in their body from their diet. Chemicals are absorbed like estrogen into our bodies in ways such as through the chemicals sprayed on our vegetables, steroid-filled protein food sources, and even through chemicals in plastic bottled beverages. It is no wonder that most women are estrogen dominant!
At Woodlands Wellness, we use only bio-identical hormones which are 98% identical in structure to the hormones that your body produces. These bioidentical hormones are made from wild yam and cannot be patented. In contrast, other hormone replacement therapies are a synthetic replica of your body's hormones and are only 6% identical in structure. Which one would you rather have; a natural bio-identical hormone cream or a synthetic counterfeit cream? Of course, the pharmaceutical companies would prefer that you choose the synthetic type because they can patent the formula and charge more money. The natural bio-identical hormone alternatives occur in nature and cannot be patented.
