Frequently Asked Questions
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What are the benefits of BHRT?
Think of all your current symptoms and know that hormones are responsible for many major processes in the body. Hormonal imbalance can lead to many varied and uncomfortable symptoms. Properly balancing your hormone levels can alleviate many of these resulting in a good night’s sleep and improving your overall health and well-being!
Are there side effects to BHRT?
Possibly, for some patients. But this is transitional as your body acclimates to the therapy. BioIdentical means that the chemical structure of compounded hormone replacement therapy matches exactly what your body produces. We are putting back into your system something your body recognizes as its own. Compounded BHRT is plant-based, so it’s natural.
Why compounded BHRT instead of mass-produced?
While some health-care providers only offer traditional hormone replacement therapy based solely on limited lab work, there are those that prefer a more integrated approach. This will include more detailed lab work and a better understanding of you.
At SaveWay Compounding Pharmacy we offer comprehensive saliva and blood spot testing that can be done in the convenience of your home. One of our hormone consultants will explain your test results to you so that you also have a clear understanding of what’s happening in your body. This information allows you to be your own best advocate for your health.
