Natasha Iyer, M.D. – Calgary Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
Hormones control many functions in human body, and they deeply affect a person’s metabolism, mood, sex drive, energy, appetite, sleep, strength, and endurance.
Hormones keep you alive!
In recent years, hormone therapy has been the subject of bad press. Of course, everything in the media is about getting attention.
The truth can be twisted in ways to get attention! Beware of what you believe.
Most reports are from studies that used synthetic hormones and combinations that were not natural to the body and its’ state of health.
The NIH study caused the biggest upset in medicine, which led to millions of women suddenly stopping their hormone therapy in fear of getting heart attacks and cancer. What emerged later was that the synthetic artificial, non-natural hormone, Provera, was the biggest culprit in the adverse findings.
Hormones and How They Work
Hormones are created from nutrients. Protein molecules provide the building blocks to making hormones. Both vitamins and minerals attach to these protein molecules to create different hormones. After they have been created, hormones become great communicators. They are chemical messengers that direct every function in the body. From energy and metabolism, to blood pressure and sugar regulation and from how you gain or lose weight, to sex drive and vitality, hormones help keep you alive and feeling well.
The Key to Hormone Replacement Therapy
A Medical doctor sharing information on bio-identical hormones compares how they work to a lock and key. Your standard house key is specifically designed to unlock your door. When hormones are being replaced, they should be identical to the specific hormones that have been lost. Otherwise, it is rather like using your house key to open up the house next door. The lock will reject it because the design cut inside the lock is not identical to the design cut of your key.

Dr. Iyer’s Model of Complete Health:
The Triangle of Health
The foundation and the first side of the triangle is your physical being. This refers to every part of your structure. Modern medicine does a great job of looking after your eyes, lungs, stomach, feet and everything else that makes up your structure.
The second side of the triangle is your nutritional-bio-chemical-hormonal being. You require nutrients to make and use hormones. You need nutrients to feed every part of your body. You require a balanced biochemistry so your hormones influence your body functions in the best possible manner. And finally, your hormones are the chemicals that keep you alive and feeling well.
The final side of this health triangle is your emotional-spiritual being. When we attend to all 3 sides, you will be as healthy and happy as possible. This is the way we treat patients at Better – A Medical Centre for Complete Living. Our team members have been chosen for their expertise and the attention they give to every side of your highly unique triangle.
