Natural hormones are hormones that are biologically identical to those that are produced endogenously within our bodies. Although bio-identical hormones have long been utilized in other countries, in the United States non-bio-identical hormones have been predominantly used for the last 50 years. As the Women's Health Initiative Study documented, synthetic hormones are carcinogenic, toxic and raise a women's risk for other diseases. Bio-identical hormones are almost entirely without side-effects and, because they are biochemically identical to those produced in the body, they maximize all the positive benefits that endogenous hormones normally contribute to our health and well-being. At the Natural Health and Acupuncture Clinic we are able to evaluate, balance and optimize your individual hormone levels safely and effectively.
