Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Horst Pharmacy can meet the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women and men (andropause) by compounding plant derived, bio-identical hormones. This type of hormone replacement therapy is appealing to because they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.
All women are not the same. Therefore, each patient needs an appropriate dosage strength and form of medication to fit the individual. Our compounding pharmacists can tailor a hormone regimen, which mimics what the female's body has been doing for the past 50 years.
For male patients who are experiencing andropause, we can develop an effective supplemental treatment of the basic hormone testosterone.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has many benefits:
Same identical hormones as exist in the human body
Hormones are derived from a natural source
Therapy is individualized
Avoidance of side effects
Bio-identical hormones can be placed in a variety of dosage forms including: capsules, topical creams, suppositories and sublingual troches or lozenges. Our pharmacists work with the patient and his/her physician to choose the dosage route and strength that is most beneficial and pleasing to him/her.
