Why Bio-identical Hormones help bring your body into balance naturally
Menopause can be a tough time for women due to hormone imbalances in the body. This is what causes the anger, depression, anxiety, tears, hot flushes and many other uncomfortable symptoms.
By carefully replacing the missing hormones in your system with more naturally derived ones, your body will get back into balance and you’ll be feeling great again.
What exactly are Bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones – also known as body identical hormones – are defined as compounds that have exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones that are produced by your body.
Derived from plants (wild yams), your body absorbs and uses them just as it would if it was still producing these hormones itself.
The right treatment, tailored to your specific needs
Why take a general ‘off-the-shelf’ medication that might be too high or too low for your symptoms when you can have the perfect dose instead?
Our doctors prescribe low doses of BHRT to relieve your symptoms and to help balance your hormone levels. The bio-identical hormones are specifically compounded for you by a compounding pharmacy, ensuring you’re provided the lowest effective dose to have you feeling better again.
We will continue to work with you, monitor your progress on your treatment program and when the time is right, wean you slowly off the BHRT.
