Bioidentical hormones are designed with the same chemical structure and function as the hormones that naturally occur in your body. These hormones can be created for a variety of hormones that play an important role in our daily functions, including testosterone, thyroid hormone, DHEA, and many more. Bioidentical hormones offer a safe and effective option for hormone replacement therapy and yield more natural results compared to other synthetic hormones. What are common signs/symptoms of hormonal imbalances? Testosterone is the hormone that most commonly impacts men and is most likely to fall below optimal levels.
