BioIdentical Hormones

BioIdentical Hormones

Are you suffering from hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, low libido, vaginal dryness, anxiety or depression? Are you confused about hormones and your treatment options NutriChem has been a leader in women’s health issues, and has been supporting menopausal women through bioidentical hormone compounding for over 20 years.

 NutriChem understands your frustration! Many women from around the world visit our clinics regarding menopause and other women’s health issues. As a result, NutriChem has become a leader in educating health professionals and patients regarding hormone health.

 At NutriChem, we are experts in compounding personalized bioidentical hormones.

What is a bioidentical hormone?

BioIdentical hormones match exactly the hormones in a human’s body. These hormones include estrogen and progesterone.

Traditionally prescribed hormones are chemically different than those found in the human body. In fact, some of the more commonly used estrogens are made to match the hormones in a horse’s urine. While these traditional hormones were used for many years, when a proper study called the Women’s Health Initiative was completed, their long-term safety was questioned.

Regardless of what form of hormone therapy you choose (although we much prefer the human kind), the guiding principle of any hormone therapy should be: 

 Use the lowest possible dose for the shortest period of time to ease symptoms.

  • Only when symptoms are severe and quality of life is significantly impaired, should hormones be considered.
  • The right woman, the right hormone (if hormones are needed). The right time, the right dose.
  •  

     A prescription is required for bioidentical hormones. Our clinicians are able to write one for you. Or, if your doctor needs help writing a prescription, one of NutriChem’s experienced expert pharmacists can help!

     For more information, please refer to The Menopause Report.

NutriChem and its staff do not offer medical advice online. Please call or email one of our clinics to set up an appointment with a clinician or nutritionist, or call or come into the pharmacy to speak with a pharmacist.
