Mark Drugs Pharmacy Bio-identical Hormones
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is the process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance with hormones that are biologically identical to hormones produced by the human body. These may include estradiol, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, hydrocortisone and possibly the thyroid hormones T3 and T4.
Bio-identical hormones have been available and used in hormone treatments for decades. In fact, several of these have been used as parts of conventional prescription medications. Compounding these products to match each person’s unique needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach used with off-the-shelf hormones can enhance the quality of life of a person by allowing them to feel truly balanced.
Bio-identical Hormone therapy requires appropriate testing, examination and discussion of symptoms with a healthcare practitioner. We can help you locate a practitioner who has experience with Bio-identical Hormone Therapies that is right for you.
Many conditions may be influenced at least in part by hormone imbalance.
