As every woman is unique, we do not all react in the same way to hormonal changes in our bodies. Mainstream HRT on offer can help resolve a lot of our issues, but some symptoms need a different approach. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be used to achieve that fine balance that may be needed for an individual woman. It is important to be able to choose the most effective and appropriate treatments to give us the hormonal balance we require.
Bio-identical hormones were first derived from diosgenin, a substance obtained from Mexican yams. These hormones are similar in their molecular structure to those found in the body. They work effectively with your body with fewer chances of side effects. Latter is possible as the dose can be fine-tuned to each individual woman and her symptoms. Bioidentical hormones are compounded by the Specialist Pharmacy to include the specific combination of hormones and strengths prescribed only for you.BHRT has been used worldwide in USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and France.
A combination of the following hormones are compounded together to create different effective formulations. These may be taken in the form of patches, creams, pessaries or lozenges.
BHRT & HRT are effective as they mimic the hormones that your body is naturally producing. These treatments can be prescribed to help reduce symptoms caused by hormonal fluctuations in the body leading up to and during Menopause. As each person’s biochemistry is unique so should their treatment be.
