Natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps men and women who are experiencing hormonal deficiencies. Middle age brings on menopause, andropause and in many cases – hormonal imbalances such as low estrogen and progesterone, or in the case of men – low testosterone. These imbalances cause weight loss or gain, depression, sleep issues, loss of libido, fatigue, hot flashes and night sweats. Fortunately, these hormonal imbalances can easily be managed and corrected with personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are the most natural way to treat medical issues caused by age-related hormone imbalances. BHRT hormones such as testosterone, estradiol and progesterone, have the same molecular structure as the hormones your body produces and generate the same responses as your body’s natural hormones, making them safer and more effective.
BHRT TREATMENT BENEFITS
- Safer hormones - identical to those the body naturally produces
- Lower risk of breast cancer
- Equally effective as traditional non-identical hormone pills
- Customized dosage to fit your needs
- Available in many forms, including implantable hormone pellets
- Uses multiple hormones for restoration of natural hormonal balance
WHY USE BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES?
Clinical research has shown that bioidentical hormones have distinct advantages and safety benefits over conventional non-identical oral hormones. The North American Menopause Society, the leading academic medical organization that focuses on hormone replacement therapy in women, has recommended bioidentical hormones for relief of menopause symptoms, highlighting their unique safety benefits and dosing customization.
WHAT MAKES BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY UNIQUE?
Bioidentical hormones are delivered via implantation under the skin or through a cream applied to the skin as opposed to traditional pills. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) allows for very flexible and individualized dosing as multiple hormones can be combined for balanced replacement that addresses multiple symptoms at once. They are prescribed just like other medications and can be custom compounded by specially trained pharmacists to allow for unique administrations like implantation by Dr. Paukman.
