Ladd Family Pharmacy in Ada County and Boise, Idaho, care about patients, their health, and what’s best for their families. Many of their healthcare services are covered by most health insurance plans, and as an Idaho compounding pharmacy, they service Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and surrounding areas. While the clinic offers a variety of medications, some of the compounded medications offered include bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, pain management medicine, veterinary drugs, and medicine for children.
Compounded Bio-identical Hormones
There are a number of ways to achieve hormonal balance. One of the safest and most natural methods is bio-identical hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormones are identical in chemical structure and molecular function to the hormones produced in the human body, and for this reason, they can be more easily metabolized. Because bio-identical hormones are equivalent to the hormones produced in the human body, most people do not suffer from side effects, such as bloating, water retention, headaches, prostate enlargement, or fibroids. Hormone therapies of the past use hormones that are not identical to human hormones, which previously led to many side effects that were worse than the original symptoms.
Another benefit to bio-identical hormones is that the compounding pharmacist can customize them to suit individual needs. Other hormone replacement therapies only offer a one-size-fits-all dosage for each person. A patient with a minor deficiency may get the same dosage as a patient with a larger deficiency, which can create more imbalances. With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, patients will get the exact amount of a hormone needed to correct each imbalance.
This method is used by anti aging doctors to tweak the patient’s hormone profile and get it back into balance. The doctor uses small precise dosages of an anti-aging hormone formula to get the patient’s system back to a healthy balance where he or she can look and feel much better, and have the energy and optimism experienced during youth.
The optimization of these hormones requires precise testing to determine baseline levels and follow up testing to determine the results of the anti aging hormone preparations that patients have been given. This is all done by a qualified anti-aging doctor. The anti-aging doctor that specializes in natural hormone therapy will know which tests to give patients and how to read the results. He or she will then write a prescription that will be filled by a compounding pharmacy staff member, and patients will receive their customized anti aging hormone formula.
Patients no longer have to suffer from the problems of aging that spring from hormonal imbalances, which can include hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, night sweats, hair loss, low libido, irregular periods, joint pain, weight gain, and increased inflammation. Through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, patients can restore healthy hormone levels and really start enjoying their lives again!
