Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)

Easing the transition for both men and women as they experience hormonal shifts during midlife. As we age natural hormonal imbalances begin to occur. Sometimes it can be difficult to self-manage the symptoms that accompany these internal shifts. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a safe and effective treatment of a variety of conditions associated with hormonal imbalances. Individualized integrative care is at the core of BHRT.

Hormonal imbalances can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Acne

  • Decreased libido

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Fatigue

  • Foggy thinking

  • Headaches

  • Hot flashes, night sweats

  • Mood shifts anxiety, depression

  • Muscle loss, weakness, aches

  • Problems with digestion

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Weight gain

BHRT is a treatment using supplemental doses of hormones that are identical to the hormones that our bodies produce naturally. Hormonal shifts occur in both men and women, though experienced differently, and often more intensely for women. The same hormones are used in female and male treatments, but in different doses. Since everyone is different, each medicine is customized according to your individual needs. We work closely with your doctor to prepare the medication, form and dosage ideal for you.

The hormones involved in BHRT generally include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and pregnenolone.

Chronic Pain Management

Effective pain relief with potentially fewer side effects and less overall medication

Chronic pain affects millions of people worldwide. How to manage this pain varies greatly from person to person. Whether you have chronic pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, or a neuropathic condition, we can compound a medicine to assist you and your doctor in developing a pain management program tailored to your specific needs.

Many commonly prescribed pain relief medications help reduce chronic pain symptoms, but may also result in unwanted side effects. Custom compounding can provide alternative medication delivery methods by combining a specific combination of ingredients in a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of the pain.

Your Pets Are Unique – Custom Medications Made Specifically For Them

We’re animal lovers too!

We know pets can be pretty picky when it comes to taking their medicine. Treating animals with medications presents many unique and challenging problems, and they often experience similar issues related to mass-produced pharmaceuticals as their owners. Compounding is a convenient way to manage your pet’s special requirements.

Some ways that compounding can help:

  • your pet refuses to swallow a pill, a compounding pharmacist can turn your pet’s medication into a tasty treat
  • your pet is sensitive or allergic to an ingredient used in a commercially made cream or capsule, a customized cream or capsule can be prepared for your pet

  • Skin rashes, eye and ear infections, and allergies are just a few of the common reasons pet owners turn to compounding

  • a medication becomes discontinued or commercially available medications are not suitable for your pet

Custom compounding for your pet means that we take their specific breed, weight and overall individuality into consideration when preparing their medicine. We work closely with your veterinarian to provide products that offer more dosing options, specialization and flavouring options than what is commercially available.

Compounded medication forms include: oral liquids, capsules, chewable treats, gels, ointments, lotions, creams, sprays and powders.
