|What is Biomimetic Hormone Replacement?|
Bio-identical hormones can only be truly bio-identical if the hormones for replacement mimic not only those chemically found in the body, but also mimic the natural biological process as well.
As you may know, lately information and news about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been in the news – with educational features on the Oprah Winfrey Show and in her magazine. This has peaked the interest of women worldwide, and is getting the attention of health practitioners. However, there is still much confusion about the differences in these treatments.
I was very hesitant to buy this photo printerBiomimetic hormones, the scientifically accurate term, are derived from plant sources and mimic the natural undulating or wavelike rhythms of the hormone blood levels in a normal menstrual cycle in a healthy young woman in her prime. It is this natural rhythm that is missing from all other bio-identical and synthetic hormone replacement therapies. This term is used to describe the HRT because it denotes a compound that mimics a biological material in its structure and function.
It is the absence of this natural rhythm, according to Wiley, that is responsible for the vast side-effects in both camps.
What exactly is meant by “the rhythm”? Our human bodies have rhythms that are governed by a master clock that works much like a conductor. It strikes up one section of the body's orchestra as another quiets down, taking its main cue from light signals in the environment to stay in sync with the 24-hour day. Our body's hormones surge and ebb to this maestro's baton, controlling all endocrine function, predominantly a woman’s reproductive health.
The circadian clock in our cells measures one 24 hour spin of the planet. For 28 days the moon adds its light to create the menstrual rhythm for the body. The Wiley Protocol uses these natural rhythms in nature to establish the proper doses of estradiol and natural progesterone, and mimics the natural hormones which would be produced by a young woman’s body. Wiley Protocol is multi-phasic rhythmic dosing, meaning that the topical creams and their amounts vary throughout the 28 day cycle to restore the hormone levels of a woman in her prime. And keep in mind, younger women rime rarely get cancer, strokes, heart attacks, Alzheimer’s, or the other diseases of aging.
The topical creams and their amounts vary throughout the 28 day cycle to restore the hormone levels of youth because young women, for the most part, don’t have heart attacks, breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, or type 2 diabetes.
