Hormone Replacement Therapy
Several studies in recent years have indicated the enhanced benefits and reduced side effects of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for both women and men as compared to the traditional HRT. In compounding pharmacy, it is possible to provide customized BHRT solutions for more targeted benefits.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is one of the experienced providers of BHRT for both women and men. Patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide have an opportunity to receive innovative and advanced integrative pharmacy treatments from AIP.
BHRT can be an ideal way to improve physical health, boost the energy levels, rejuvenate appearance and restore emotional well-being when it is appropriately prescribed and formulated. The pharmacists at AIP closely engage with the physician as well as the patient to create carefully customized formulations of bio-identical hormone replacement supplements to meet the specific goals of a patient.
The experienced pharmacists at AIP will aim to maximize the treatment results through specific formulations for their personalized BHRT prescription. The outcomes can be safer, more predictable and more sustainable over time due to highly precise and controlled delivery of the replacement bio-identical hormones.
The goal of hormone replacement therapy is to restore a healthy balance of estrogen and progesterone hormones in a woman’s body in order to mitigate the adverse effects created by a hormonal imbalance. However, for the HRT to be truly functional and successful, the molecular composition of the replacement hormones must closely match the original.
The synthetic hormones commonly used today are unable to exactly replicate the molecular structure of the body’s own estrogen and progesterone. Bio-identical hormones, on the other hand, have an identical molecular and chemical structure as the naturally produced hormones in the body. This helps to provide a more effective treatment with BHRT and minimizes or eliminates the risk of several unpleasant side effects.
Another advantage is that while traditional HRT is only available in pre-determined doses and strengths, BHRT for women can, when compounded by the trained pharmacists at AIP, be tailored to match the dose, strength and type with the patient’s unique anatomy. AIP also provides online prescription refills to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Many people are unaware that even men’s hormones undergo a change with age. After the age of 30, the hormone production in men progressively slows down with each passing decade. Similar to the effects of menopause in women, men may go through andropause symptoms, which can have a significant impact on their daily lives as they age.
Andropause symptoms in men may often manifest in deterioration of muscle tone, abdominal weight gain, fatigue, and mood changes. BHRT for men can offer a precise, individualized approach to male hormone therapy.
The finest outcomes can be obtained by matching the chemical compounds and dosages required for an individual patient. AIP pharmacists work closely with the patient and the physician to offer specially designed BHRT programs for men.
