What Is Compounding?

Compounding is creating customized medication, by combining ingredients in the exact strength and dosage required by the patient and their unique needs.

Pain Management and Compounding

Many of the available pain relief options come in the form of narcotics or drugs with substantial side effects. With compounding, people can now receive medication that is customized for their unique needs without the numerous side effects!

Hormone Therapy and Compounding

As we get older, our hormone levels can change. These changes can cause symptoms ranging from weight gain/loss, mood changes, and hair loss. Compounding allows for the appropriately prescribed treatment to be completely customized based on the patient’s hormone levels.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Hormones are special chemicals produced by glands in your body. They act as messengers that tell different parts of your body when and how to work. Hormones control nearly every task your body performs, including mental and physical function. Hormones work in pairs and when they fall out of balance problems can occur.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), as well as the entire field of functional and regenerative medicine, focuses on treating the cause of symptoms, not just the individual symptoms.

With bioidentical hormones, your tailored dose is made specifically for your needs at a special compounding pharmacy. Working with our bioidentical hormone specialists, compounding pharmacies can customize the components and change the dosage amounts of hormones within your prescription. This method provides greater flexibility for adjustments and is better tolerated than the one-size-fits-all synthetic hormones available at generic pharmacies.

Fundamentally, bioidentical hormone therapy is safer and every bit as effective as conventional synthetic hormone replacement therapy. The benefits of this advanced approach include:

  • Increased focus and concentration
  • Improved outlook and mood
  • Improved blood sugar balance
  • Improved prostate health
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Improved sexual performance
  • Improved muscle mass
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Greater libido
  • More energy and strength
  • Improved well-being

As hormone changes occur with aging, both men and women may experience unpleasant symptoms such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Increased body fat
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle loss or weakness

We offer BHRT treatment to correct imbalances in hormones such as:

  • Estrogen: The term “estrogen” refers to the chemically similar hormones that play an important role in reproductive development, mainly in women. These hormones include estrone, estradiol and estriol. By applying a bio-identical form of these hormones, we can treat a variety of menopausal symptoms, such as vaginal dryness and hot flashes. These creams can also help to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and coronary artery disease while improving your overall physiological well-being.
  • Progesterone: Used to help balance the effects of estrogen, progesterone helps to restore libido, deter weight gain, relieve hormone-related mood swings and protect against conditions such as osteoporosis. This is prescribed in both oral and cream form, depending on what symptoms we are treating.
  • Dehydroepiadosterone (DHEA): This is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands. It plays a significant role in increasing sexual arousal, insulin sensitivity, bone density, mental and physical capacity and helps to protect against many age-related illnesses. DHEA can also reduce the risk of heart attack by improving the lining of coronary arteries.
  • Thyroid: As you age, your thyroid levels will naturally decrease. This results in lower metabolism and body temperature which can in turn lead to feelings of fatigue and depression. Hormone replacement therapy can effectively counteract these symptoms.
  • Testosterone: Testosterone is responsible for libido, muscle mass and energy levels, naturally decreases with age. Restoring this hormone to proper levels can lead to a healthier sex drive increased muscle mass, higher energy levels and better mental focus.
