Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
When it comes to managing symptoms of menopause, Custom Medicine offers a natural choice for hormone replacement therapy that helps alleviate symptoms and may provide long-term benefits. See if bio-identical hormones are a good choice for you:
Are you suffering from hot flashes or other symptoms of menopause?
Are you worried about maintaining your bone health?
Is your libido not what it used to be?
Is your thinking a little foggy?
 
Achieving Hormone Balance
For decades, synthetic hormone replacement was the unquestioned standard of care until the results of the Women’s Health Initiative revealed the health risks and side effects.

Custom Medicine specializes in Bio-identical, or natural hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). This therapy uses hormones that are biologically identical and therefore indistinguishable from those created by the body. Rather than replacing lost hormones with synthetics that simply manage symptoms, BHRT helps restore the body’s hormones to optimal levels. 

Our trained pharmacists work with you and your clinician to determine the treatment plan that is right for you and your body alone. Using specialized equipment and purified hormones, we create the unique formulation that your body needs to restore hormone balance.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Dosage Forms
Since dosing is patient specific, we work with you to determine what dosage form is the best fit for your body and your lifestyle:
Topical (transdermal) gels or creams Using a penetrating gel, the hormones get absorbed through the skin so the body can use only as much as it needs, and eliminate the rest.
Slow Release Capsules Allows several hormones to be combined in one capsule.
Sublingual Drops A few drops under the tongue can deliver a systemic dose in a matter of minutes.
Flavored Lozenges An effective and tasty vehicle that provides great absorption.
Vaginal Suppositories Ideal for relieving specific symptoms

"What people need to understand is that when their natural hormones are at optimal levels in their youthful prime is when they are the healthiest. It's only when hormones decline and synthetic hormones are introduced to the body that we see these problems. In my practice of prescribing natural hormones to women for five years, I have never seen the problems and side effects as we have seen with the synthetic hormones. Why not replace the body with natural biologically identical hormones. Anything else, as we have seen with the recent discontinuation of the WHI Trials, is dangerous to a woman's health."

--Neal Rouzier, M.D. , author of Natural Hormone Replacement for Men and Women: How to Achieve Healthy Aging in response to JAMA findings.
“Suddenly, the seven dwarfs of menopause arrived at my door without warning: Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated, Forgetful & All-Dried-Up. One by one they crept into my own private cottage in the woods and started to take over my life.”

-Suzanne Somers
