Customized Replacement Therapy for Women & Men
Bio-Identical hormones are chemically structured the same as the hormones made by the human body. The molecular structure of natural or bio-identical hormones is the key component versus synthetic. This chemical structure must match the original in order for a replacement hormone to fully replicate the function of hormones naturally produced and present in the human body.
Goals of Bio-Identical HRT
- Alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in production of hormones by the body
- Give the protective benefits which were originally provided by
naturally occurring hormones
- Re-establish a hormonal balance
The goal of any form of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
should be to provide an adequate supply of the deficient hormone
in a form that is as close as possible to that which the body
originally produced, therefore resulting in normal physiologic
effects. Every person is unique. Therefore, it is a sensible approach
for health care professionals and patients to work together to
customize HRT. Bio-identical HRT can be compounded in the
needed strength and dosage form and administered via the most
appropriate route to meet each individual's needs.
The precise components of each person's therapy need to be
determined after physical examination, medical history,
symptoms, and laboratory testing are considered. Close
monitoring is essential to ensure that appropriate dosage
adjustments are made.
