Many people think of fluctuations when the subject of hormones is brought up. Some think about a sex drive, stamina or puberty. Those are all components of hormones, but hormones affect us all as we age. Declining hormones are the basis for the aging process, nobody escapes this fact. The good news is that hormone balance can be restored and a quality of life can be achieved again with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Bio-identical hormones are plant derived and synthetic hormones are animal derived. The most commonly prescribed synthetic hormone is derived from the urine of a pregnant mare. This is prescribed commonly to counteract the symptoms of menopause.
