Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Your hormones control most of your bodily functions like appetite, sleep and energy, metabolism, libido, mental and immune functions. If your hormones become unbalanced, even by a small amount, it can cause many unwanted symptoms and long-term health and well-being disorders. Many people have been turning to Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, as a solution to help balance their hormones so they can start feeling well again. BHRT is a more natural option to help men and women to treat unbalanced hormones. Bio-identical hormones are produced using plant estrogens that are identical to the hormones produced in your body. BHRT hormones can be combined or altered while being compounded to meet everyone's individual hormone needs.
Women begin to experience symptoms of hormone decline at varying times of their lives. Some women have abnormal cycles and have a difficult time conceiving or retaining a pregnancy while others have normal cycles well into their sixties. Most women begin with nagging symptoms in their early-to-mid forties. When hormones levels fall, there are a multitude of symptoms that can arise like insomnia, depression, hair loss, weight gain, and many more. Luckily, these symptoms can be managed with a practice called hormone balancing.
Hormone balancing is a complex puzzle that requires a good doctor and an experienced compounding pharmacist to find the perfect balance of hormones that your body requires for stability. Our pharmacists have decades of experience working with doctors and patients who have traveled through this maze. It may seem unimportant that the people who make your medication also work hand in hand with your doctor. However, this triad of patient, doctor and pharmacist are vitally important to achieve a life not only devoid of symptoms, but ultimately improving long-term overall health. Today, the average woman will live to the age of 90 years old or more. There are three conditions that most women will experience by the time they reach this age: Heart disease (the most likely cause of death), dementia or Alzheimer’s, and osteoporosis. Studies have shown all three of these conditions can be reduced dramatically or eliminated with the use of bio-identical hormones along with lifestyle choices such as a good diet and proper exercise.
