The word hormone comes from a Greek word that means to ‘excite’, ‘spur on.’ That’s exactly what hormones do within your body. They act as catalysts to spur on chemical changes within your cells that supply energy and aid in development. Approximately 300 different tissues in our bodies are equipped with oestrogen receptors!
As we get older, our bodies produce lower levels of regulatory hormones like
Oestrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone.
Several conditions which may be due to hormonal imbalance:
Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, Postnatal Depression and Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome

WHY Bioidentical Hormones?
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) uses hormones that are not identical in molecular structure than those produced by our own bodies. Introduction of these foreign elements has been shown to cause a large number of unwanted side effects and in some cases, increased in the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease (Women’s Health Initiative, 2002). Click HERE to gain insight in the evidence from British Heart Foundation, which showed a small increase in stroke with postmenopausal women on HRT.

Bioidentical Hormones: A UNIQUE Experience! These Hormones perfectly match the chemical structure of natural occuring hormones. Patients have been prescribed Bioidentical Hormone worldwide (in the USA, Canada, Australia and Germany).
Incorporated within any prescribing, is monitoring the health of every Patient, which is why clinical assessments are required such as blood analysis and ultrasound scanning, which is mandatory.
The main ‘philosophy’ associated with Bioidentical Hormones is that WE are all UNIQUE. Through this amazing insight, I was inspired to train as ‘Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapist’ as part of ‘The Marion Gluck Training Academy’. My Practice as a Bioidentical Hormone Therapist for both Men and Women – has evolved to provide ‘Monthly Support Groups’.
