Fond du Lac's Premiere Hormone Health Center
An integrative program that optimizes your hormone levels.
To live a truly full, productive, and joyous life, men need the right amount of testosterone, and women need the perfect balance of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. But as both men and women age, hormones decrease, triggering a host of unwanted symptoms.
Through advanced, cutting-edge testing and personalized treatment, our Forum Health Fond du Lac creates a complete, integrative program that optimizes your hormone levels, restoring your energy, your sex drive, your mental focus, and your stamina.
What is a natural hormone?
The term “natural” is confusing when it is used in connection with hormones. When we say a hormone is “natural,” we are referring to the molecules that make up the structure of the hormone. A natural hormone has a chemical structure that is identical to the hormone naturally produced by the body, which is why natural hormones are also called “bioidentical” hormones.
A “natural” hormone does not mean that it is an organic product purchased in a health food store. In fact, many “natural” hormones are synthesized in laboratories using pharmaceutical-grade products. The important thing to remember is that for a hormone to be considered “natural” its structure must replicate exactly the structure of hormones your body produces.
What is a synthetic hormone?
A “synthetic” hormone, on the other hand, may have a structure similar to, but not exactly the same as, a hormone produced by your body. However, these chemical differences can mean that the synthetic hormone acts differently in your body and produces substantially different effects. “Natural” and “synthetic” hormones should not be considered the same or used interchangeably.
Salivary testing, a more accurate lab test than blood, and prescribing bio-identical hormones for replacement, creates a much safer, natural way to address HRT.
