We can’t emphasize enough how important it is – when putting hormones into your body – for them to share the same molecular make-up that your hormones have.
Human hormones are made up of a base of cholesterol, and then have specialized attachments that allow them to fit perfectly into receptor molecules in your body. When a hormone perfectly nestles into a receptor, it tells that receptor to turn on or off certain behaviors.
These hormonal and cellular commands are what makes us act certain ways and feel certain things. When things are not working quite right, that is usually when we find ourselves in need of hormone replacement therapy.
So if you put a bioidentical hormone into your body – one that is structurally the same as the ones you already have – it will fit perfectly into your body’s receptor molecules. And, it will start acting on them as one of your hormones would.
Synthetic Hormone Effects
But, if you put a synthetic hormone into your body, it just won’t feel quite right. It won’t fit into your receptor molecules as seamlessly as your hormones do.
Synthetic hormones can cause erratic effects. Patients report constant of ups and downs in terms of hormonal impacts when taking synthetic hormones. They also correlate with an increased chance of:
- Blood clots
- Heart attacks
- Breast cancer
- Gall bladder disease
