Why Consider BIO IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT)?
Studies have shown that bio-identical hormones help relieve symptoms and are safe. Because of some previous studies many people have concerns about the link of estrogen to breast, uterine cancer.
Estrogen therapy does not increase risk of disease, including heart attack and breast cancer. This impression began in 1991 as the result of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) which was halted due to increased incidence of chronic disease among subjects. This study used the synthetic hormone, Prempro, and subjects of the study were an average age of 63 years. Meta-analyses following this study, including some as recent as November 2011, have shown that most of the subjects had pre-existing conditions that led to the development of disease during the study and that hormones actually reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases in women.
Everyone is unique and nothing will be recommended until your health profile, consultation and lab work is reviewed. If you already working with someone, great. We will work with your provider to achieve your optimum wellness.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is different than the hormones used in the prior studies. How? First, BHRT uses natural hormones that are identical in molecular structure to those in your body versus the synthetic ones used in the studies. Second, we create a customized program based on your body’s specific needs as the result of testing multiple hormones. We feel that by taking a more natural and customized approach we will be able to effectively address your symptoms and get your body back to optimal performance leaving you feeling better.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is personalized for you. BHRT balances by determining the person’s unique hormone profile and giving you only what you need at the lowest doses and the shortest amount of time necessary to minimize any side effects. You will be monitored with follow up testing and most importantly be communicating with us along the way. The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bio-identical hormones -hormones that are identical in molecular structure to those in the body. This is important because synthetic hormones are NOT natural to your body, for instance one common prescription hormone is made from urine of pregnant mares.
What are some alternatives to BHRT?
Some people still don’t feel comfortable with hormone therapy, and if that is you, we still want to let you know that are other ways to help you.
After reviewing your results we can create a program with alternatives such as herbs, vitamins and minerals to help bring balance in your body. Most of all we want to discuss your results for you so that you know what is happening in your body and help you make an educated decision.
We certainly understand that BHRT may not be for you. This is only one component of your wellness program.
Our team will work with you on the many ways we can help you improve your quality of life.
Where do our medications and supplements come from?
We partner with Eagle Grove Pharmacy in Eagle Grove, IA. Eagle Grove Pharmacy staffs trained pharmacists who are knowledgeable and experienced in compounding bio-identical hormones.
Our supplements come from a manufacturer operating under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and maintain a state of the art laboratory testing and quality control.
