Our treatment protocol for symptoms of menopause includes an initial consultation, and may include vitamins & supplements, lifestyle counselling, diet, and compounded Bio-Identical Hormones.
In traditional hormone replacement therapy the hormones do not fit the body’s hormone receptors perfectly and can alter the receptors and cause damage to the DNA. This can lead to some of the side-effects associated with the use of synthetic hormones.
The advantage of bio-identical hormones is that they have the same molecular structure as our body’s natural hormones. This enables them to attach easily to the hormone receptors in our body and form a perfect fit, and the body recognizes them as if they were the body’s natural hormones. This means that they elicit the same physiological responses as the natural hormones they are replacing, and they provide a natural way for the body to restore its youthful hormonal balance.
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, which prescribes a standard dose for all women, bio-identical hormones are custom formulated for each individual patient. The first step is to obtain a baseline reading of hormone levels. The most accurate way to do this is through a Hormone Saliva Test Kit.
Hormone Saliva Test Kits are available for purchase at our Pharmacy. You can take the saliva test in the comfort of your home and then book a consultation with the Pharmacist to discuss the results and determine a personalized wellness plan to bring your body back to its natural youthful balance.
