Bioidentical hormone replacement and Natural hormone replacement is conceptually similar but what the public perceives as ‘natural’ isn’t equivalent to ‘bioidentical’. The difference lies in that when people think of ‘natural’ they think so long as it’s derived from nature, that the product is ‘natural’. For example, phytoestrogens derived from soy products is perceived by the public as being ‘natural’ but it is not bioidentical to human oestrogen. Bioidentical hormones go one step further in that the molecular structure of bioidentical hormones are exactly the same as the hormone in the human body. Hence in the eyes of the FDA, bioidentical hormones are ‘natural’ so therefore it cannot be patented. In attempting to slap a patent on it, it would be like saying a particular company has the rights to your hormones.
This is where a compounding pharmacy is at its best. A compounding pharmacy can prepare bioidentical hormones from your doctor’s prescription in different strengths, concentrations and delivery methods so that you can get an individualized, customized hormone replacement treatment to achieve optimal results for you.
