BioIdentical Hormone Replacement & natural alternatives

What is hormone replacement therapy?

As we age, our bodies naturally produce fewer hormones – and that can have an impact on many areas of life and health. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, uses synthetic hormones to replace hormones like estrogen and progesterone that are no longer being naturally produced by the body.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are synthetic hormones that have the same chemical structure as hormones that are naturally produced by the body. As a result, the body recognizes bioidentical hormones in the same way as it recognizes natural hormones, which means bioidenticals can be processed and eliminated from the body in the same way as natural hormones. As a result, they're not associated with the same side effects as other types of synthetic hormones which may build up in the body and cause serious health risks.

What natural treatments are available for hormone issues?

Today, there are natural vitamin and herbal supplements that can help women address many of the symptoms associated with hormonal decline, as well as lifestyle changes that can promote overall health and wellness and help you feel more “normal.” While they may not be as effective as bioidentical hormone therapy in managing some issues related to the decrease in natural hormone production, natural alternatives can be very helpful in reducing many effects of hormonal fluctuations, including night sweats, irritability, nervousness and hot flashes.

How can I tell which treatment is best for my needs?

Dr. Louis-Jacques has extensive experience in helping women overcome the issues associated with decreases in hormones like estrogen and progesterone. During your office visit, she'll review your symptoms and your concerns and discuss all of your treatment options so you can make an educated decision you can feel confident about.
