About Hormone Replacement Therapy
In mid-life, people’s normal hormone levels decline and can cause uncomfortable symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy is one treatment option that patients can choose in consultation with their doctor.

Since hormone levels in each person can greatly vary, the approach to therapy is different from person to person. The “one-size-fits-all” model offered by the pharmaceutical industry through commercially available medications does not take into account the uniqueness of your body. A simple blood test or saliva test reveals a panel of hormone levels that helps your healthcare provider fashion a therapy that is catered to you. We recognize that every person requires a regimen that is specifically designed to address the needs of each individual.
Hormone replacement therapy is a viable solution for symptomatic relief by exogenously replenishing what the body no longer regularly produces. Compounded hormone medications utilize hormones that are naturally occurring in our environment – estrogens are extracted from soy and progesterone is extracted from yams. These hormones are chemically structured exactly like the ones naturally produced by your body and therefore mimic the same functions intended by nature.
Compounded hormones are made available by our pharmacy in a wide variety of combinations, strengths, and dosage forms. Capsules, troches, sublingual tablets, sublingual drops, topical creams, and vaginal creams are some of the dosage forms that are offered. We will work hand in hand with you and your physician to find the most balanced treatment course to have you feeling like you again.
