As a woman ages, the risk of hormonal imbalances will increase. In some cases, even men may suffer from hormonal imbalances. A bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is designed to correct such imbalances and restore the body’s harmony and health. Compounding pharmacy solutions are available for BHRT, which can improve general health, enhance energy levels, improve appearance and restore emotional stability.
The American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is one of the premier providers of BHRT. Experienced treatment providers at AIP will closely engage with the patient and the physician to customized compounds of bioidentical hormone replacement supplements that can effectively match with the specific requirements of a patient. AIP provides BHRT to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County and other Southern California locations.
Female Hormone Replacement
The two key female hormones include estrogen and progesterone. When the normal levels of these hormones become disrupted, an integrative pharmacy may provide BHRT with a goal to correct the delicate balance of hormones in order to support general health, well-being and aesthetic appearance of a woman.
Some of the common women-specific health concerns that may be treated with BHRT include the following:
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
- Symptoms of menopause including mood swings, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, menstrual irregularity, bone density loss, and loss of sleep
- Symptoms of perimenopause, when female hormones levels begin to decline in anticipation of menopause
BHRT treatment offers several advantages for women. The benefits can vary from one patient to another depending on her age, specific health issues and other factors:
- Improved body weight and healthy weight loss
- Younger looking skin appearance
- Mitigation of premenstrual, perimenopausal, and menopausal symptoms
- Greater energy levels
- Minimal episodes of anxiety and mood swings
- Increased concentration and memory
- Improved sleep patterns
- Increased sex drive
- Firmer appearance of breasts
- Stronger bones and teeth
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancers
AIP offers both traditional compounded medications as well as online prescription refills to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County and other Southern California areas.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones
Long-term benefits with a BHRT treatment program can be achieved when the molecular composition of the replacement hormones is identical to the original ones. It may be very difficult to achieve this with synthetic hormones because these are unable to exactly replicate the molecular structure of the natural hormones.
This is where bioidentical hormones can offer a superior alternative. These hormones have the same molecular and chemical composition as the natural ones. Therefore, hormone replacement therapy with these hormones will be more effective and have minimal risk of side effects.
Another benefit with bioidentical hormones is that unlike the synthetic hormones, these are available in customizable doses and delivery forms. Expert pharmacists can tailor the dose, strength and type according to the unique needs of a patient.
AIP pharmacists can also provide BHRT for men in a customized manner in order to create improved health outcomes and support a better quality of life.
