Hormones play an important part in general health, affecting energy, metabolism, sex, sleep, memory, weight, mood, skin, hair, joints and bones. Anyone who has been through puberty knows the powerful effect that hormones have on the body.

Are your hormones out of balance?

If your hormones become unbalanced, due to menopause, andropause, or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, compounded hormone replacement therapy can restore balance, helping you feel like yourself again.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Natural Hormones are essential to healthy, vigorous and more youthful bodily function.

They are derived from plant sources and modified to become identical in chemical structure to the hormones made in your own body. Because they are exactly the same as what the human body produces, we refer to these hormones as biologically identical, or "Bio-Identical". Bioidentical hormones are what we use to replenish depleted or sub-optimal hormone levels. They are easily metabolized, allowing your body to integrate them readily without the negative side effects often associated with synthetic hormones.

Hormone Optimization treats the Root Cause of Age-Related Health Issues

Everybody ages, but not everyone realizes that hormonal therapies can treat many symptoms of aging. Naturally, our hormone levels decline as we age. When the signs and symptoms begin to impact our everyday health we start to take notice.

In order to feel, look, and be your best, men and women must maintain a proper balance of the natural hormones:

  • Estrogens
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Pregnenolone
  • Cortisol
  • Thyroid

We offer saliva tests to help you and your provider figure out the best place to start.

Our hormone test kits are available without prescription, and conveniently performed in the comfort of your own home. Saliva testing is easy, non-invasive, and less expensive than serum (blood) tests. Most importantly, it is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. For more information or further details, ask our pharmacists.

Mack Bayou compounding pharmacists are highly experienced in HRT, and often assist providers with interpreting results of saliva hormone tests. The results of these diagnostic tools can help determine a course of treatment which will give you the exact amount of hormones your body needs.
