Anyone who has been through puberty knows that hormones have a powerful effect on one’s body. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.
BHRT is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:
- Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Post-partum depression
- Weight gain
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Sleep disturbances
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Decreased libido
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
Each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals.
Bio-identical hormones have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above please contact our pharmacist Doctor Maria E. Hernandez, Pharm.D; R.Ph. She has been working closely with women on bio-identical hormones for over 14 years. She has earn her solid reputation based on referral from woman that she has been able to help restore their lives. She strongly believes in the triad where physician-patient-pharmacist work closely together to come up with a regimen that best works for you.
