What are Bioidentical Hormone Therapies?

Anti-Aging Skin Care Compounded Skin Care Treatments | Long BeachBioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT) are primarily designed for women, but in a few cases, may also be developed for men to treat hormonal imbalances. Compounding pharmacy solutions for BHRT, when properly prescribed and formulated, can help to improve physical health, boost energy levels, rejuvenate appearance, and restore emotional well-being.

The American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is a leading provider of BHRT. The experts at AIP will work in close coordination with both the physician and the patient to create carefully customized compounds of bioidentical hormone replacement supplements that are tailored to meet the unique goals of the patient. AIP provides BHRT solutions to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, and other Southern California areas.


BHRT for Women

BHRT for women involves estrogen and progesterone replacement therapy in order to correct the sensitive balance of hormones that are essential to a woman’s overall health, well-being, and appearance.


Role of BHRT

BHRT using innovative and advanced compounding pharmacy solutions of estrogen and progesterone can treat a range of women-specific health issues, including:

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • Symptoms of menopause including mood changes, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, menstrual irregularity, bone density loss, and insomnia
  • Symptoms of perimenopause, when female hormones levels begin to decline in anticipation of menopause


Benefits of BHRT

A variety of benefits of BHRT are possible for women, depending on their age, unique medical concerns and other factors. These include:

  • Healthy weight loss
  • Enhanced skin appearance
  • Reduction of premenstrual, perimenopausal, and menopausal symptoms
  • Higher energy levels
  • Mitigation of anxiety and mood swings
  • Improved concentration and memory
  • Better sleep patterns
  • Greater sex drive
  • Restoration of firm breasts
  • Healthier bones and teeth
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancers

AIP provides both traditional pharmacy and online prescription refills for BHRT and various other treatments. AIP receives patients from Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County and other Southern California, and nearby areas.


Advantage of Bioidentical Hormones

To achieve sustainable success with a BHRT program, the molecular composition of the replaced hormones must match with the original. This may not be possible with the synthetic hormones because they cannot exactly replicate the molecular structure of the natural hormones.

Bioidentical hormones, on the other hand, have the same chemical and molecular composition as the natural ones, enabling a more effective hormone replacement therapy and minimizing side effects. Another advantage is that while synthetic hormones are only available in fixed doses, bioidentical hormones can be customized by trained pharmacists at AIP to match the dose, strength and type with the patient’s unique requirements.


BHRT for Men

BHRT for men offers a customized approach to male hormone therapy, matching the dosage and compounds required to produce optimal results in each case. AIP pharmacists work closely with the patient and the physician to create a precisely formulated hormone replacement program. The treatment provides improved health outcomes and a better overall quality of life.
