As we age, or experience intense and prolonged stress, hormones fluctuate to various degrees, sometimes resulting in discomfort. We provide over the counter (OTC) options as well as Bio-Identical Hormone Replenishment Therapy (BHRT) compounds made in-house in our compounding facility. General approach includes:
- A stable amount of progesterone. In general Evening Primrose oil and Chaste tree are allies in this, but this is best treated with BHRT (see reverse).
- Specific liver detoxification. Calcium-D-Glucarate (CDG), Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C), or Diindolylmethane (DIM) are great OTC options, going further than general herbal detoxes. These are also found in cruciferous vegetables!
- Lifestyle modifications (diet, exercise, habits, immune support) for overall body health. Pharmacist favorites include: omega-3’s, vitamin D, multi/antioxidant vitamin, digestive enzymes/probiotics
