As described in Suzanne Somers’ book The Sexy Years, the state-of-the-art in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for women suffering from the symptoms of menopause is the administration of bioidentical estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. But why has bioidentical hormone therapy, or BHRT, become the preferred choice over traditional hormone therapy using synthetic hormone medications?
A Bioidentical Hormone is defined as a hormone that is identical in molecular structure to the hormone produced by your body. These hormones are obtained from sterol analogues found in many varieties of plants.
Fountain of Youth MD physicians think it is a crime that some people still believe that it is a woman’s duty to quietly suffer the miseries of menopause. We know that treatment of hormone imbalance in women—whether it is low estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, growth hormone, or other—improves the quality of life for most women and helps reduce the potentially serious medical conditions that accompany these hormone-deficiency states, such as obesity, diabetes cardiovascular disease and dementia. Hormone decline and the misères that follow do not have to be part of normal aging anymore!
Many women diagnosed with depression, low sex drive, weight gain, hot flashes and pre-menopausal and menopausal symptoms who failed previous mainstream medical treatments improve with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Bioidentical hormone therapy, also known as “natural hormone replacement therapy” is safe, effective and relatively free from side effects in comparison to synthetic hormones such as Premarin, Prempro, Provera and Estratab.
One of the many appeals of bioidentical hormones is that they are natural. This allows our bodies to better utilize them and results in fewer side effects than synthetic horse-derived hormones, which are chemically altered compounds that are very strong, not molecularly identical to the hormones produced by the human body, and thus tend to produce more side effects than bioidentical hormones.
The natural, compounded bioidentical hormone medications offered by Fountain of Youth MD can be customized to serve each individual woman’s needs—a quality that’s impossible with mass-produced synthetic hormones.
Every day millions of women suffer from uncomfortable and potentially disabling symptoms associated with the hormonal imbalances of pre-menopause and menopause. These low hormone states may be causing you to feel depressed, anxious, fatigued, sexless, generally ill…or spending most of the time feeling like your get up and go has got up and went.
