Bioidentical hormones

London hormone clinic

Symptoms of menopause can impact on your daily life. At Omniya, one of the ways we treat these symptoms is through Hormone Replacement Therapy. It is worth noting that hormone replacement therapy has many other benefits for your menopausal health, not simply to reduce the symptoms of menopause. One of the ways in which hormone health can be improved is through bio-identical hormone therapy, which can be used for women who are having menopausal problems, and other female problems like premenstrual tension, fibroids and even migraines. Balancing hormones, using bioidentical hormones, can be a way to improve energy, vitality, concentration and mood.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones in London (UK)

A bioidentical hormone has the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones made naturally in the body. This means that bioidentical hormones are 100% identical to the chemical structure of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone chemically produced in the body. These naturally occurring bioidentical hormones are sourced from plants like wild yams, soya beans and manufactured by pharmaceutical companies to make lozenges to be taken orally or in cream forms. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the precise use of hormones to replace and rebalance the body’s natural hormones during the changes that lead up to menopause (and andropause, in men, which will be discussed in a later blog). Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can also be used as a treatment to balance hormonal conditions such as premenstrual tension, painful and heavy periods, fibroids, endometriosis, post-natal depression and other hormonal imbalances. In future blogs, we will also discuss alternative therapies to bio-identical hormone therapy, and lifestyle choices.
