The phrase “bioidentical hormones” refers to hormones that have an identical molecular structure to those produced naturally in the body.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is sometimes also referred to as "natural hormone therapy.” But this can be misleading or confusing because natural and bioidentical do not have the same definition. Simply, hormones can be natural without being bioidentical; to qualify as natural a product simply must be produced from an animal, plant or mineral source.
For example, the drug Premarin is commonly used in hormone replacement therapy for women. Derived from the urine of pregnant mares, this drug is certainly natural. But it is not bioidentical to human hormones. Similarly, Cenestin, another drug used in hormone replacement therapy, is a plant-based product. Cenestin is natural, but not bioidentical to the human hormones it is meant to replace.
Ecoterra Holistic Pharmacy, however, offers bioidentical hormones. Instead of conjugated estrogen, for example, customers may be prescribed Bi-Est or Tri-Est, which are bioidentical to the kinds of estrogen found naturally in the human body.
