Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical hormones are one form of therapy for menopausal symptoms. Winfrey, who turns 55 this month, writes in February's edition of O, The Oprah Magazine that she felt "out of kilter" and had "issues" for two years that she suspected were hormonal. Upon a friend's recommendation, Winfrey went to a doctor who specializes in hormones.
 
Winfrey writes that the hormone specialist told her that her "hormonal tank was empty" and gave her a prescription for bioidentical estrogen.
 
"After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift," Winfrey writes. "After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step." 
 
Winfrey isn't recommending bioidentical hormones for every menopausal woman. Instead, she urges women to "take charge of your health" and says it's time to "start the conversation" about menopause and bioidentical hormones.
 
The February issue of O, The Oprah Magazine delves into the root of this problem and possible fixes, and Oprah is taking the discussion even farther. "We're opening a national conversation about hormone replacement therapy," she says. "This is about your hormones being out of whack, and you don't even know—we haven't had a language to talk about it yet."

What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (also known as natural hormone replacement therapy) is the treatment of the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause (the stage of gradually falling and fluctuating hormone levels, which often begins in the early 40s) or post-menopause through the use of bio-identical hormones (instead of synthetic hormones).

Bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure that is exactly the same as that of hormones produced by our bodies, which makes them biologically identical. Because bio-identical hormones are identical to those produced by the human body they offer important theraputic advantages as well as relief from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as hot flashes, night sweats, depression, moodiness, weight gain, acne, fatigue, insomnia,  loss of libido, memory loss, depression, difficulty concentrating and more.

Some other advantages of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy are;  improves the look and feel of hair and skin, weight loss, improves sex drive, improves mental health, lowers cholesterol levels, decreases the risk of osteoporosis, decreases the risk of heart attack, stroke and more!
