Women’s Health

Women’s Health: Bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) refers to using hormones that are identical to humans.  When a woman is in menopause or peri-menopause, many times she will choose hormone replacement to alleviate those symptoms.  BHRT gives her a more natural method to accomplish that goal.

As a woman ages, her body becomes less effective in producing these vital hormones. Hormones fall to unhealthy levels creating a hormone imbalance in your body. Menopause, adrenal fatigue, and other hormone syndromes are all characterized and caused by improper hormone levels. Female hormones must stay in perfect hormonal balance in order for your body to function optimally.

Hormone deficiency in women often causes the following symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • irritability
  • depression
  • weight gain
  • hot flashes
  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • lower sex drive
  • vaginal dryness
  • loss of bone density
  • joint pain

Women have traditionally used synthetic estrogen therapy to treat menopausal symptoms and to help protect against osteoporosis. Because women taking synthetic progesterones experience unwanted side effects such as headaches, malaise, nausea, irritability and break-through bleeding, more women are turning to natural progesterones that have very few side effects and are well-tolerated.

Compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women through the use of plant-derived hormones that are biologically identical to those naturally occurring in women.

It’s your body – why not give yourself the option of a customized, bio-identical hormone therapy?
