If you are ready to do something about the hormonal imbalance that has taken over your life, bioidentical hormone therapy in Greenwich may be right for you.
People suffering from hormone imbalances can experience a wide range of symptoms—depression, anxiety, weight gain, irritability, mood swings, male pattern hair growth, low libido, and other symptoms are all possible. The symptoms you’ll experience will depend on which hormones are out of balance.
Traditional treatment options for hormone imbalances are often designed to treat the symptoms themselves and not the actual hormone imbalance. But with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Greenwich, you may finally find the relief you’ve been looking for.
Visit The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy to fill your compounded BHRT prescription. Below, we go into further detail about what bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is and how much you might expect to spend if you decide to move forward with this alternative treatment option.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
When your body is unable to produce the correct amounts of hormones, you can experience a wide range of debilitating symptoms. But bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can bring back the balance.
BHRT introduces biologically identical hormones—derived from plant compounds—into the body to make up for hormone deficiencies. These are different from the synthetic hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). BHRT is considered a more natural approach to hormone imbalance treatment, but research suggests that BHRT and HRT are equally effective and safe.
Who Can Benefit from BHRT?
If you are interested in trying hormone therapy, talk to your doctor to find out whether you are a good candidate for BHRT. People who have a history of any of the following conditions may not be good candidates for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy:
- Breast cancer
- Blood clots
- Heart disease
- Uterine cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Liver disease
How Much Does BHRT Cost?
Most people assume that their health insurance will cover at least a portion of their prescription medications. But when you have a prescription for a compounded medicine like BHRT, your insurer may refuse to cover the costs.
Compounded medications, including hormone replacement therapy, are not generally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And in order for your insurance to cover the costs, your prescription will likely need to be FDA-approved. Every policy is different, so you should discuss potential costs with your healthcare provider and insurance company.
