Goals of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

  • Alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in production of hormones by the body
  • Give the protective benefits which were originally provided by naturally occurring hormones
  • Re-establish a hormonal balance

Estrogens

Estriol (E3), estradiol (E2), and estrone (E1) are often prescribed in combination to re-establish a normal physiologic balance

Progesterone

  • Is commonly prescribed for perimenopausal women to counteract "estrogen dominance"
  • Is preferred by women who had previously taken synthetic progestins, according to one Mayo Clinic study
  • Produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands in women and, in smaller amounts, the testes and the adrenal glands in men.
  • Especially beneficial because it keeps the other hormones in balance

Androgens (i.e. testosterone & DHEA)

  • Enhance libido
  • Testosterone is often called the "hormone of desire" because of its powerful effect on libido
  • Testosterone is important in building strong muscles, bones, and ligaments, as well as increasing energy and easing depression
  • DHEA has shown to protect against cancer and heart disease and to lower cholesterol. DHEA has also shown to improve memory, strengthen the immune system, prevent bone loss, reduce body fat, and enhance libido
  • Provide cardiovascular protection (lower cholesterol)
  • Enhance bone building (increase calcium retention)
  • Improve energy levels and mental alertness

Pregnenolone

  • Referred to as the "parent hormone"
  • Believed to be the most potent memory enhancer, it has also been shown to be beneficial in improving concentration, fighting mental fatigue, and relieving severe joint pain and fatigue in arthritis

Cortisol

  • Primary hormone secreted by the adrenals in response to stress
  • Involved in the regulation of glucose, protein, fatty acids, immune cells, inflammation, blood vessels, blood pressure, maintenance of connective tissue
  • Symptoms of high cortisol; muscle and bone loss, abdominal fat, elevated blood sugar, sugar cravings, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, suppressed immune function, memory, mood, and sleep disturbances
  • Symptoms of low cortisol; chronic fatigue, allergies, asthma, susceptibility to illness and infection, arthritis, fibromyalgia

Thyroid

  • Affects every bodily function by regulating energy and heat production, growth, tissue repair, and development; stimulating protein synthesis; modulating carbohydrates, protein, and fat metabolism as well as digestion; modulating muscle and nerve action; and helping to regulate hormone excretion and oxygen utilization.
  • Symptoms of thyroid imbalance include; tired/exhausted, sad/depressed, cold hands/feet, weight gain, can't lose weight, forgetful, poor concentration, mood changes, depression, slow pulse rate, hair loss, brittle nails/hair, aches/pains, low libido, thinning skin, constipation

Melatonin

  • Produced by the pinal gland
  • Levels decrease with age
  • Low levels are associated with difficulty in sleeping
