Bio-identical hormones
So, what are Bio-identical hormones, and what do they have to do with your general health and wellbeing?

Bio-identical hormones are synthetic compounds which are identical to human hormones. Unlike conventional hormone therapies, which are typically derived from animals, bio-identical hormones behave in the exact same as hormones found naturally in the human body.

Bio-identical hormones are prescribed to correct an existing hormone imbalance and optimise hormone levels.

It is not reserved for people older and women during the menopause, hormone restoration can have health benefits for everyone, at any stage of their lives.

Research has shown that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy improves quality of life, general health and wellbeing and decreases the risk developing chronic illness.
Hormones that we test and re-balance include:
Oestrogen
Progesterone
Testosterone
Human Growth Hormone
Thyroid Hormones
Cortisol
DHEA
Melatonin


Vitamin testing and replacement
To fully optimise health and wellbeing it is recommended to combine bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with focussed lifestyle adaptations in particular nutrition and exercise which are essential to optimise physical and mental health.

To facilitate this vitamin testing can also be carried out at the same time as hormone profiling.
Vitamin levels that can be tested include:
Thiamin (B1)
Riboflavin (B2)
Niacin (B3)
Vitamin B6
Folic acid
Vitamin B12
Vitamin C
Vitamin D
Vitamin E
Biotin B7

Vitamin testing is useful to identify vitamin deficiencies and allow targeted replacement therapy, which combined with a healthy diet can dramatically improve physical symptoms. It can also highlight were vitamin levels are adequate and in this case avoid unnecessary vitamin supplementation. This is equally important from a medical point of view, as we know that over supplementing vitamins, such as vitamin A, can be just as detrimental to our health as being deficient in the vitamin in the first place.
