What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Compounded preparations play an important role in the treatment of hormone deficiencies and imbalances. Marin Wellness Pharmacy uses bioidentical hormones that are derived from plant-based hormones and match the molecular structure of the hormones in your body that fall during and before menopause and andropause. Because the hormones replicate those you are missing, they can rejuvenate your health and well-being safely and with minimal to no side effects. We customize dosing and work with your physician to create a medication to fits best for you. Our bases are hypoallergenic, and we use no added excipients, so you have a medication that is natural and as clean as possible.
HRT is the term used to identify synthetic hormones produced by pharmaceutical companies to mimic hormones we make. The problem with HRT is that the molecular structure is not the same as human hormones and are often suggest being used for short term therapy due to adverse side effects.
BHRT is the term we use for structurally and biologically identical hormones that are produced by the human body. They are derived from plants such as yam or soy and are used in compound products due to their long-term benefits. BHRT compounds offer a clean alternative to the patented HRT formula produced by major pharmaceutical manufacturers and have fewer incidences of breast and uterine cancers as well as lower risk in heart disease, strokes and dementia.
