Fatigue is one of the primary complaints leading women to seek solutions to restore their quality of life. The intensity, severity and scope of low energy levels vary from case to case; but based on a recent study, approximately 50 -75% menopausal females report moderate discomfort in performing their day-to-day activities because of low motivation and poor energy levels.
Bio-identical hormone therapy is an increasingly popular option for alleviating the signs and symptoms of menopause. We use natural hormones instead of the synthetic ones that are present in traditional hormone replacement therapy. This ensures a higher level of efficacy and safety for women using them. It is important to know how this therapy impacts your quality of life so that you can make the best choice for your health.
About Bioidentical Hormones
Bio-identical Hormones or ‘natural hormones’ as they are more commonly connoted are very specific hormones which are identical in molecular structure to the hormones which are naturally produced in your body. Those with a scientific inclination would indeed find it fascinating that the mechanism of action of these hormones is similar to those produced by the human body. Some of the more commonly used bioidentical hormones are estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterones.
