What Are Bioidentical Hormone Doctors?

Bioidentical hormone doctors are doctors that utilize bioidentical hormones or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as a treatment. This is a treatment method for symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances brought about by andropause and menopause, explains BodyLogicMD.

A bioidentical hormone is a hormone whose chemical structure is identical to that of hormones the human body produces naturally. Unlike the laboratory-produced synthetic hormones, these hormones come from plant and animal sources, says Mayo Clinic.

Bioidentical hormone doctors use this natural hormone therapy to treat symptoms of menopause, such as insomnia, night sweats, hot flushes, depression, palpitations and anxiety. It also remedies hypothyroidism, heart disease, fatigue, adrenal fatigue and diabetes, according to The Health Doctors.
