Why don't I feel like myself?
If you’re over 40 and wondering why you’re not feeling quite yourself, your hormones are quite possibly the culprit, and we can help you fix them.
By the time you hit 45 or 50 (and sometimes even earlier), your hormones are already starting to decline. How hard and how fast they fall is unique to you.
Recognizing that you are not feeling yourself, is the first step. We can help you from here! We have a knowledgeable staff that can help you along your journey to health and well-being. We will work with you and your healthcare professional to create a compounded preparation unique to your needs. Contact us to get started.
How do I know my hormones are low or imbalanced? What can I do?
Hormone levels don’t decline in an orderly fashion, and their imbalance can cause a lot of discomfort. You probably know they can cause hot flashes — here are some other symptoms that might also feel familiar:
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
- Depression and mood swings
- Low libido
- Brain fog
- Urinary incontinence
- Decreased muscle and skin tone
- Sleep issues
- Vaginal dryness
It’s simple: your body is rapidly aging without the hormonal balance it needs. Fortunately, your symptoms can be reduced or even eliminated. One of the best ways to accomplish this is with customized BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Frequently Asked Questions
Customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
What are the benefits of BHRT?
So glad you asked! This is one of our favorite subjects. 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.
What is compounding?
Compounding is backed by science and experience. A compounding pharmacy formulates every medication in the dosage and form that’s right for each individual patient. We use transdermal delivery system to give the patient flexibility and dosing an absorption directly into the bloodstream. Think of the myriad of side effects that can come from dosing that’s too strong or too weak. One size does not fit all!
