First it was Suzanne Somers who burst open the discussion about how to ask for biologically identical hormones when it comes time to get any form of supplementation. Now Oprah has come of age, and according to Oprah:
“This is about your hormones being out of whack, and you don’t even know—we haven’t had a language to talk about it yet.” Hormone replacement therapy is relevant to women of all ages, Oprah says. “If you’re a woman who’s planning to live past the age of 35, at some point you’re going to face hormone imbalance,” she says. “All women need to be armed with this information.”
With the topic of hormones in the news almost every day, it can be confusing to struggle with a hormone imbalance and know what to do. Dr. Rabin, an experienced bioidentical hormone doctor, will help you understand your choices including bioidentical hormones, an important treatment option for hormone imbalances. Hormone imbalances are common, especially during the midlife transition. Teens, new mothers and just about anybody can had symptoms from a hormone imbalance. Hormones issues can affect women at any age.
There is medical support for the advantages of bioidentical Estriol, estradiol and natural progesterone. There are multiple studies that support the increased safety when it comes to breast health, cardiovascular health and symptom relief. Why not use the safer option? Don’t be intimidated when your current physician ridicules you for having knowledge that they haven’t bothered to pick up. It’s really not rocket science! There are well known disadvantages of the synthetic progestin imposters such as medroxy-progesterone-acetate (Provera).
Hormones occur naturally in the body and regulate a variety of functions. Traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been associated with unwanted side effects. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant sources, such as yams or soy plants, to produce molecules that are physiologically identical to the hormones made by the human body. Bioidentical hormones and hormone pellets are able to perform the actions of hormones that are produced by the body, but they may have fewer side effects than synthetic (non-bioidentical) HRT.
Bioidentical Hormones can be custom ordered at compounding pharmacies,
and are also available in specific “traditional” pharmacy prescriptions!
A feature of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is that it can be adapted to your individual body and hormonal needs. Bioidentical hormones are available in a variety of strengths and dosages. Bioidentical hormones can be found at traditional pharmacies- in fixed dosages, and not always in the form desired.
Through the use of a compounding pharmacy, a custom-made formula can be created for just the right amount and form that you need. Available forms are Bioidentical hormone pellets, capsules, topical creams and gels, suppositories, long lasting hormone pellets, and sublingual troches (lozenges).
