Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Millions of women suffer from hormonal imbalance causing them to feel like a stranger in their own skin.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT for short is used to improve overall health and the symptoms that are often associated with perimenopause, menopause, and postmenapause in women.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones that have the same chemical structure as hormones made by your own body.
Natural hormones like testosterone, estrogen and progesterone are easily metabolized, allowing your body to incorporate them without the negative side effects often associated with them.
Hormones & Menopause
For “True” Replacement Of Your Hormones, We Use Hormones that are Biologically-Identical to Your Own.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is identical in makeup to the hormones the body produces naturally.
Over 30 million women have menopause; a transitional stage marked by waning ovarian function that causes a shift in hormone balance resulting in deficiencies and excesses.
Perimenopause is a phase that leads up to the menopause stage and can begin years before menstruation ceases. This phase can cause similar symptoms as menopause.

Hormones affect your overall health
Estrogen, the most well-known hormone, plays a role in the functioning of the brain, bones and multiple organs. Loss of estrogen can put a woman at greater risk for, ovary failure, tooth loss, osteoporosis, and Parkinson’s Diseases.
Progesterone is another important hormone responsible for the proper functioning of the lining and health of the uterus. Low Progesterone can leave a women open to a higher risk of certain cancers.
An imbalance in Testosterone is important in the functioning of the brain and musculoskeletal system. Low levels of Testosterone can lead to loss of muscle tone, lack in mental clarity, emotional problems, low libido, and weight gain.

Addressing Hormone Imbalances with compounding
Our expert pharmacists work with you and your doctor to create a BHRT program catered to your individual needs.
Bioidentical hormones actually mimic what a woman’s body does naturally. We prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms including capsules, topical solutions, troches, suppositories, or drops to best meet the individual needs of the patient.
