The Dangers of Traditional HRT
Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has, for years, been considered the most popular option. However, the hormones used in traditional HRT are highly synthetic and do are not chemically identical to the hormones produced by the body. Because of this, only a fraction of the hormones administered under HRT are accepted for use by the body. This reduces the overall effectiveness of the treatment. The remaining synthetic hormones can potentially increase the risk of a heart attack as well as a variety of cancers.
Finding a Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
To get the most out of BHRT, patients must find a seasoned medical professional with years of experience in bioidentical hormones. Because of the versatility of the treatment, experts come from all reaches of the medical community. Many hold a degree in allopathic or osteopathic medicine. Many belong to associations related to BHRT or its applications.
Before deciding to undergo BHRT, it’s important to educate yourself on the risks and benefits the treatment can have. Look for multiple sources and perspectives when gathering information. A good bioidentical hormone doctor will offer a number of educational articles and be able to answer any questions, comments, or concerns you may have during a consultation.
