Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
If lab tests ordered by your doctor indicate that your hormones are out of balance, consider compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Rather than settle for a one-size-fits-all hormone replacer, you can be sure the products our compounding pharmacists create are custom-tailored to your physical needs. This ensures maximum healing potential.
While BHRT is most often associated with relieving menopausal symptoms, it can be used to treat a host of ailments in both men and women. These include depression, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain and insomnia, among others.
What does bioidentical mean?
The term bioidentical simply means the hormones in the product are equivalent, down to a chemical level, to those naturally produced in your body. BHRT is also called natural hormone therapy: naturalmeans the hormones in the product are not synthetic (man-made), and are instead sourced from plants or animals.
One advantage of bioidentical HRT over traditional hormone therapy: Products from compounding pharmacies are not subject to the same standards that normal hormonal preparations are required to meet, so you can get the relief you need without compromise.
Our hormone replacement therapies include:
- Thyroid hormones T3 and T4
It’s important to note that some commercial processing is necessary to reach a bioidentical state. Also, traditional hormone replacement therapies may include some amount of natural hormones. The difference is that our pharmacies can offer you custom-prepared, naturally derived treatments that are just right for your unique body and stage of life.
