Menopause Relief

Compounding Pharmacist, Denise Burnham, RhP, explained what bio-identical hormones are and why they may be right for some women when it comes to relieving symptoms of menopause.

"Natural hormone replacement therapy is probably better described as bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. This means that the hormones are chemically identical to the hormones that the human body makes. These hormones are plant derived from soy or wild yam and purified out so that even soy or yam allergic patients can tolerate these "clean" forms of hormones. These  
hormones include progesterone; estrone (E1); estradiol (E2); estriol (E3); dehydroepiandosterone (DHEA); and testosterone. Hormone replacement therapy may be beneficial for men as well as women. Creating the proper hormone balance is important for good health".


If you are interested in bio-identical hormones as a treatment option for you, Denise recommends discussing it with your doctor. She also has a free seminar at 7:00 pm on May 14th to explain more about bio-identical hormones. The location is 8560 SW Salish Lane, Suite 100 in Wilsonville.
