How Does Bio-identical Hormone Therapy Work?

At our downtown Vancouver clinic, Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is distinctively adapted by a naturopathic doctor or compounding pharmacy to meet the needs of each patient. Bio-identical hormones are often used in combination with a customized program, consisting of diet, vitamins, homeopathic, herbal, and other nutritional therapies. This type of treatment is designed to ensure optimal health, vitality and the ultimate mitigation of troublesome menopausal symptoms and conditions.

Genetics, along with personal lifestyle choices, such as reducing stress, nutritional intake and physical activity play a significant role in how well your body responds to hormonal health and changes. Your naturopathic doctor will ensure to promote the value of maintaining a healthy lifestyle into your Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy program.

First, your naturopathic doctor will conduct laboratory testing to assess the body’s current hormonal condition. Once the laboratory testing is complete, the doctor will have a better idea as to what sort of customized hormone replacement therapy plan will be put together for you. The naturopath doctor will also consult with the patient on troubling symptoms and problems they would like to eliminate. Some of the most common issues women going through any of the phases of menopause report are:
