Hormone-related conditions affect millions of people daily, and when those fluctuations begin to change your health and quality of life, hormone replacement therapy is an available solution. Natural hormone therapy uses the hormone produced from plants to treat conditions, and natural replacement therapy can treat most mild to moderate hormone conditions. However, when those treatments don’t provide enough relief, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can provide more accurate hormone deficiencies.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormones contain an identical chemical structure as natural hormones and include the exact molecular structure needed for better hormone production. The molecular structure of hormones function with specific receptors and chemicals, and in many cases, those with hormone conditions experience issues with how hormones communicate with the body. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses plant-derived estrogens chemically identical to the human body and replaces them through treatment options such as pills, creams, gels, injections, and patches.
What is Compounded BHRT Treatment?
For patients with hormone conditions, sometimes the types available to them are not applicable due to their medical history, making it difficult to receive treatment. For instance, patients who have swallowing issues may have problems taking a BHRT treatment that’s only available in oral form. In these cases, compounding can help customize the treatment and provide an altered medication that suits the patient’s needs.
Compounding is combining, mixing, and altering medication to help treat the patient’s condition. Compounded bio-identical hormones work to change the doses and dosage form to the individual’s preference, and change it to structures such as:
- Topical creams
- Sublingual Drops
