Why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Sanctuary Functional Medicine specializes in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, helping women overcome the side effects of Perimenopause and Menopause, while giving women much-needed disease prevention. Bioidentical Hormones are chemically, structurally identical to the hormones your body makes (or used to make). Because of this, Bioidentical Hormones not only give you symptom relief, but also lower your risk of Heart Disease, Alzheimers, Osteoporosis, Colorectal Cancer and many others diseases associated with aging (Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Sarcopenia, etc.).

The media (and many medical providers) have incorrectly lumped traditional commercially-available hormones (such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera) in with Bioidentical Hormones when reporting on the latest research or answering questions about hormones. Most bioidentical hormones start with a base of wild yams, while some commercially available hormones are synthesized from pregnant mare’s urine (Premarin and PremPro) and contain estrogens that are unique to horses and not found in humans at all.
