ARE YOUR HORMONES OUT OF BALANCE?
Unbalanced hormones will make anyone feel out of sorts, strange in their own body, sometimes subtle and other times downright crawl-out-of-your-skin type feeling. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. When hormones become altered, whether it’s because of menopause or another medical reason, you may end up feeling out of balance yourself . However, compounded hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.
HRT is most often used to ease the symptoms of menopause or out of balance hormones, and can also be used to help with other conditions that women of all ages may experience, such as:
- Pre Menstrual Syndrome
- Irregular Menstrual Cycle
- Moodiness I
- Post partum Depression
- Weight gain
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Sleep disturbances
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Painful Intercourse
- Vaginal Dryness
Because each woman is unique and the above affects thousands, many look to their doctor for some kind of relief.
Pharmaceutical companies have manufactured pills and patches to help treat the symptoms. The mass production and limited availability of doses which makes one size fits all kind of mentality just doesn’t work for each individual the
way customized compounded HRT does.
At ECHO PHARMACY, along with your doctor, we understand that no two women are alike and the unique differences require customized compounds to get the optimal benefit. HRT can utilize hormones that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own. Most are natural plant
based and are derived from soy or yam.
Echo Pharmacy can provide a hormone evaluation form for you to fill out. A pharmacist experienced in HRT may assist the healthcare provider in helping interpret the results of serum of saliva tests which measure a patient’s hormone levels. The healthcare provider, compounding pharmacist, and the patient can use the results of
these diagnostic tools to help determine a course of treatment which will give the patient the exact amount of hormones her body needs.
A variety of dosage forms are available to suit the needs of the individual we have: Capsules,Creams, Suppositories, Troches, Lozenges, and Sublingual Drops.
Once HRT is started, we will follow you to make sure you are getting the results we expect and make any adjustments necessary to keep you in balance
