As we age, our bodies go through unwanted changes with questionable aches and pains that lead many to wonder: What is happening in my body right now? How can we get a better picture of our overall health? Practitioners often find that a hormone imbalance can reveal a vast amount of information regarding a person’s health. 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) and how does it address hormone level abnormalities?

BHRT Vs. Other Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is a term used to describe hormone replacement with bio-identical hormone preparations that have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally found in your body.

If your medical provider feels this type of therapy is appropriate for you, Eastern States Compounding can compound prescriptions containing estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, etc. in the exact dose your provider wants for you.

How is BHRT Customized for My Needs?

Compounding pharmacies formulate specific dosages and medication forms to address the individual needs of patients. If practitioners decide that an individual is a good candidate for BHRT, they will first prescribe a hormone test. Since the onset of the COVID pandemic, the new standard in hormone testing has shifted to saliva or blood spot hormone tests that can be done in the comfort of one’s own home.

Once the results come back, your practitioner and expert pharmacist will discuss the best approach to address any specific deficiencies or abnormalities. Patients take advantage of a personalized experience that makes a potentially difficult situation easier. 

Get the Help You Need

If you are a patient and you are experiencing (or suspecting) a hormone imbalance, talk to your medical provider about getting your hormones tested. If you want to avoid needles and labs, ask them about a prescription for an At-Home Testing Kit.  

If you are a practitioner looking to provide your patients with an easier way for testing hormones and vitamin levels, talk to our pharmacists about how we can help. We are a BHRT compounding pharmacy with experts that have helped thousands of men and women find relief.
