Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormone balance is essential for memory and concentration, cardiovascular health and strong bones as well as supporting the body’s ability to maintain health, energy and happiness. Hormonal imbalance badly affects many women during menopause.
 
Bio-identical hormones are a class of hormones that have been in conventional medical use for more than 6 decades and have FDA approval in the US. The science of hormones is solid and the clinical application and use of them is growing in the UK.
 
We provide Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women suffering many of the symptoms associated with menopause. BHRT use hormones from nature which have the same chemical structure as your hormones, derived from specially prepared soya and yam, and do not have any known side-effects or risks.

Through a personal consultation with our Clinical Director, and following blood tests where appropriate, we can provide:

  1. Creams / lozenges or capsules for hormonal balance.
  2. Vaginal creams for urinary incontinence and painful sex.
  3. Face creams for skin rejuvenation.
  4. Hair foams and tonics for hair thinning.
When in balance your hormones are good for you - keeping you strong, mentally agile and sexually active. Bio-identical hormones are a natural replacement for your depleted hormones restoring balance, vitality and health.
 
Essential to the success of BHRT is tailoring the prescription to suit your individual needs and hormonal imbalance, which is why all of your BHRT creams / lozenges are customised and prepared by the pharmacy specifically for you.
 
BHRT is a long term treatment plan to help you manage the transition through menopause, or when you are ready to stop.
