Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women and Men
What are Natural Hormones?
The natural hormones we provide are specifically created to have the identical chemical structure as those produced by your own body. The crucial difference between natural and synthetic hormones lies in the molecular structure. For any hormone replacement to completely match the way existing hormones function, its chemical structure must be exactly the same.
Synthetic Hormones Cause Side Effects
The structural differences between natural human hormones and those that are synthetically produced or derived from animals have been firmly proven through research. These structural differences may be the cause of the side effects often experienced when hormone replacement is done with synthetic hormones.
Natural HRT Goals for Women
The most common method of hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is the treatment of menopausal symptoms in women. As certain hormonal levels decrease, post-menopausal women experience a wide range of symptoms, including: night sweats, hair loss, insomnia, bone loss, hot flashes, decreased libido, mood swings and vaginal dryness.
Common natural HRT goals for women include:
- Restoring natural hormonal balance.
- Returning the natural protective benefits that the original hormones were providing.
- Diminishing the effects of post-menopausal symptoms that occur due to decreased hormone production.
We believe that each patient we see is unique. As a result, we believe that the best care can be provided through a joint effort of patients and their health care providers to create an individualized hormonal replacement therapy. At Neil’s Compounding Pharmacy, your natural hormone replacement treatment can be created in the perfect dosage, strength and delivery method for your unique situation.
Male Andropause Treatment and Testosterone Replacement
Men often experience decreases in their hormones around the same time that women begin dealing with the symptoms of menopause. In men, this condition is known as andropause, and deals mainly with decreases in testosterone levels. Andropause generally occurs in a slower and less noticeable manner than menopause, with symptoms appearing gradually over time. When testosterone and other hormones are returned to previous levels through natural hormonal replacement therapy, men may notice dramatic improvements. Often these benefits may reverse negative effects that were previously unknown to the patients.
Testosterone Replacement Goals for Men Over 50:
- Retaining existing bone mass
- Lowering cardiovascular risk
- Boosting strength, stature and muscle mass
- Improving erectile dysfunction and libido
- Benefitting mood and psychological health
The male hormonal decline is more gradual and long-term than female menopause. As a result, the subtle decrease in testosterone levels may make these hormonal imbalances trickier to spot, as the symptoms are not as clear. In addition, many of these symptoms are often lumped into the effects attributed to aging. The term andropause is used to describe the wide range of symptoms potentially caused by deficiencies in testosterone, including: erectile dysfunction, fatigue, loss of muscle tone, weakness and diminished libido.
DHEA and testosterone, two of the body’s most critical androgen hormones, are the most commonly prescribed treatments for male HRT patients. Neil’s Compounding prepares testosterone treatments as sublingual troches, or topical gels and creams. We prepare DHEA prescriptions in their most absorbable form as sublingual troches.
