Bio-identical Hormones

Monday, August 31st, 2009

There has been a lot written about bio-identical hormones recently. Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones in the human body. Bio-identical progesterone was first manufactured in the 1930s. But when the U.S. drug companies got involved they had to alter the chemical structure so that they could patent them. Natural bio-identical molecules cannot be patented and without patents there is no profit for the pharmaceutical companies.

Studies have shown that artificial hormones cause inflammation, insulin resistance, blood clots and other damage to the body. Inflammation is a big cause of heart problems.

As we learn more about bio-identical hormones we will be able to by-pass the damaging patented hormones and live a healthier life.
