Patient Intake FormsBioidentical Hormone Replacement for Women

Millions of women suffer uncomfortable disabling symptoms associated with the hormonal imbalance of pre-menopause and menopause. This hormone imbalance may be causing you to feel numerous symptoms that are a nuisance at best. The symptoms or signs of menopause and related hormonal issues include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Irritability
  • Loss of muscle

Dr. Steve Zakany specializes in bioidentical hormone optimization. A bioidentical hormone has a chemical structure that is identical to the hormone naturally produced by the body. Natural or bioidentical hormones cannot be patented by pharmaceutical companies. No patent means no profit for pharmaceutical companies. This fact has led to the development of a number of synthetic hormones that have a structure similar to but not exactly the same as a hormone produced by your body. These chemical differences mean that the synthetic hormone acts differently and produces substantially different effects. Natural (bioidentical) and synthetic hormones should not be considered the same or used interchangeably. They are entirely different. A multitude of studies have demonstrated many harmful effects of synthetic hormones whereas the medical literature supports no harmful effects of natural hormones, only beneficial effects. Potential Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Optimization include:

  • Increased bone mineral density
  • Better hair, nails and skin
  • Improved sexual desire
  • Improved cognitive function
  • Increased ability to cope with stress
  • Decreased heart disease
  • Improved blood sugar and insulin levels
  • Reduction of fat levels
  • Increased self assurance and confidence
  • Improved mood and well being

Dr. Steve Zakany feels these benefits far outweigh any potential risks.

A very extensive review of bioidentical hormone use and current controversies can be found in the White Paper authored by the Life Extension Foundation and Mark L. Gordon, M.D. This review of the current medical literature can be summarized by the following statement: bioidentical hormones good; non-bioidentical hormones bad. Dr. Zakany encourages you to read on to understand why.
