BioIdentical Hormones

Hormone replacement is commonly used in medical practice to restore levels of certain hormones that may be lacking in the body.  This is commonly referred to as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).  Bioidentical hormones are synthetically made and structurally identical to human hormones found in the body. They are derived from plants but chemically modified to mimic the function of internally produced hormones.
