WHAT ARE HORMONES?

Simply stated, hormones are the key to many of the functions in our bodies. Hormones not only determine
our specific gender characteristics, but they also help us think, tell us when we are hungry or full, make us feel happy or sad, help us fall asleep at night and wake up in the morning… and so on. The body is an amazing, organized system of hormones carrying messages. When our hormones decrease, these messages aren’t received as strongly.

 

WHAT DOES BHRT MEAN?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is a term referring to the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level with hormones your body makes naturally.

 

WHY BHRT?

As we age, our body’s ability to create optimal hormone levels decreases. While this is a natural process to aging, illness and environmental influences can speed up the side effects of hormone loss.

 

WHAT HORMONES ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

Primarily estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol and thyroid.

 

MY DOCTOR WANTS ME ON A BHRT REGIME, NOW WHAT?

At Fusion Specialty Pharmacy, our expert pharmacists create your bioidentical hormone specific to you! Your hormone levels are as individual as you are.

 

Under the care of your doctor, we take your prescription and “compound” naturally derived hormones. We also create your BHRT in a delivery system that works best for you. Whether it be capsules, creams, troches, etc., we create it with your needs in mind.
