Created to tackle hormonal imbalances, bio-identical hormone replacement treatment can effectively help reduce the unwanted symptoms of the menopause, PMS, postnatal depression, endometriosis and menstrual issues.
When it comes to getting advice about the menopause, many women are told by that they are simply going through “the change” and that symptoms will pass. However, hot flushes, mood swings and loss of libido can have a severe effect on our day to day quality of life, and living without adequate hormone levels accelerates the ageing process.
Bio-identical hormone treatment can prove very beneficial to patients who have previously tried hormonal medications, including HRT, and experienced unwanted effects.

Bio-Identical Hormones are identical in chemical structure to those that are found in the human body. They are derived from natural sources, such as yam and soya.
Because they are identical in chemical structure to our own hormones, their effects and benefits replicate them closely. Synthetic hormones have a chemical structure that may be similar to, but not exactly the same as, your own hormones which can act differently in the body and produce different effects.
Evidence shows that Bio-Identical Hormones have a safety profile similar to synthetic hormones, although patients generally experience less side-effects because treatment is tailored to match your specific needs rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
