Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy
Naturally occurring hormone products can not be patented; therefore you will find a vast array of patented synthetic, semi-synthetic and animal hormones made by and available from major manufacturers.
However, in order for a hormone to fully replicate the function of naturally produced hormones in the human body, the chemical structure must exactly match the original.
Hormone replacement therapy should only be carefully initiated after a patients medical and family history has been thoroughly reviewed.
Our compounding specialists work with the patients and physicians to provide customized natural hormone replacement therapy that provides the correct hormones in the most appropriate strength and dosage forms to meet each patients individual needs. Close monitoring of each patient and occasional medication adjustments are essential for continued good health.
Hormone replacement therapy can be used to treat such symptoms as:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Weight gain
- Increased anxiety, depression and mood swings
- Vaginal dryness, atrophy and painful urination
- Loss of concentration and memory function
- Sleep disturbances
- Diminished sex drive and painful intercourse
- Loss of muscle strength
- Urinary incontinence
- Frequent yeast infections
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low energy
“What people need to understand is that when their natural hormones are at optimal levels in their youthful prime is when they are the healthiest. It’s only when hormones decline and synthetic hormones are introduced to the body that we see these problems. In my practice of prescribing natural hormones to women for five years, I have never seen the problems and side effects as we have seen with the synthetic hormones. Why not replace with natural biologically identical hormones. Anything else, as we have seen with the recent discontinuation of the WHI trials is dangerous to a women’s health”
