Here the hormones taken are identical in molecular structure to the hormones made in the body and act that way as well. Working with your medical practitioner, our expert compounding pharmacist Phil Altman and an individualized patient-centered approach, you can get the dose you need to feel like yourself again as your body repairs and regulates itself.

A Quick Look at Hormonal Imbalances

  • Estrogen – not enough can be responsible for not only wrinkles, but also fatigue, mood swings, recurrent urinary infections, itching skin, dryness of eyes and mouth, and hair loss.
  • Progesterone – not enough can cause anxiety, poor sleep, bloating and water retention, among other things.
  • Testosterone - not enough can cause depression, impaired memory, cellulite and decreased sex drive.
  • DHEA – not enough of this hormone produced by the adrenal glands can cause muscle and joint pains, reduced bone thickness, reduced sleep quality and decreased immunity against infections.
  • Cortisol – too much can cause “middle age spread”, increase in blood pressure and blood sugar and a break down in muscle tissue.

Along with the wonders of bio identical hormone therapy, we offer you a well rounded holistic approach to achieving health and vitality through our special medical-grade nutritional supplements, and protocols for dietary and lifestyle changes. We at The Healthy Choice Compounding Pharmacy look forward to helping you achieve optimal health!

Meet Phil Altman, Pharmacist/Owner

Phils-New-picture-0212I started out as a traditional pharmacist in my Dad’s pharmacy. However, I always knew I wanted to do something that would make a difference and circumstance led me to it. The day came when a very unfair landlord failed to renew my lease and instead put in a CVS at our location. Looking toward the future, I came up with a concept to integrate a health food store and a traditional pharmacy so that people would be able to benefit from both. I had a sense that conventional and alterative healthcare were complimentary and I became educated about supplements and other alternative healing modalities. As our reputation grew, women started asking for what was known at the time as natural hormones – as an alternative to the standard, mass-produced hormone replacement therapy on the market. So I did a lot of research, joined the compounding association, and realized that many of the people I knew were starting to enter into the menopausal phase of their life. And unlike my parent’s generation, women today are generally not ok with feeling old at 65. They intend to have a good quality of life and strive to be physically, emotionally and sexually active until they are well into their 80’s. Today Bio Identical Hormone Restoration Therapy gives them a venue to do just that.

What Makes Healthy Choice Unique?

inside #2What makes The Healthy Choice Compounding Pharmacy stand out is our knowledge and unique customer service. We are available every day, all day, to take the time to speak to both the customer and physician. We share what we know so they can make the best decision. When I talk to physicians and patients it is always about more than compounding. It is a five piece puzzle which includes lifestyle, exercise, supplements, education and compounding. We believe all these things lead to successful living.

What’s Next?

So where are we now? We have grown as the industry has grown. I think we have been able to impact many lives because of our comprehensive, holistic approach. We’ve recently integrated a fresh juice and smoothie bar into what we are doing here because it is a natural fit. We continue to develop our supplement side as we learn about stressors and cortisols, in order to help people manage those situations. We do webinars, attend conferences and read constantly in order to incorporate the best and most current therapies out there. Our goal is not so much to expand but to make sure we always run at peak performance. We always want to be able to supply quality product and service moving forward.

At Thorne, we know the purity of a supplement’s raw ingredients makes the difference between an effective, well-tolerated product and an inferior, poorly absorbed one that may even cause allergenic reactions.

Thorne is one of the few dietary supplement manufacturers to maintain a state-of-the-art testing laboratory in-house. We believe this is an integral component to providing superior product quality and purity, as it allows us to keep extreme and constant control of our entire manufacturing process.
