Bioidentical HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
A safe alternative to conventional HRT.
Many women taking conventional HRT feel they are faced with only two options: continue to take synthetic hormones and hope for the best, or stop taking hormones and experience unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal drynes, bloating, forgetfulness, mood swings, night sweats, irritability, breast soreness and weight gain, to name a few.
A third choice you may not be aware of is Bioidentical HRT. This therapy differs from conventional HRT in several ways.
- Uses hormones that have the same moleculare structure as the hormones produced by the ovaries
- Is prepared by a compounding pharmacist and is NOT available from a drug manufacturer
- Uses progesterone, not progestin, and different etrogens (estrol, estradiol) either as a single ingredient or multiple ingredient prescription
- Is individualized or customized to each woman’s needs, symptoms and hormone levels, and can easily be adjusted.
