Hormone Replacement Therapy
A customized approach to human-identical hormone replacement therapy before, during and after menopause using a four step customized program
Step One - Patient Questionnaire
As part of a comprehensive program, the Meno-Pausitive ApproachTM analyzes your individual needs through a confidential patient evaluation form. The patient questionnaire inquires about your health history as well as symptoms you may be experiencing. Your answers help us to identify the symptoms that bother you the most and develop a plan to address them.
Step Two - Hormone Levels
Test results from saliva hormone samples that you can do at home, or blood serum lab work ordered by your physician, are utilized to determine your exact needs. Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol hormone can be determined. Saliva hormone tests can be purchased directly on line from Healthway Compounding Pharmacy and taken in the privacy of your home. Saliva hormone measurements may have an important advantage over serum blood draws for the following reasons:
They can be collected at precise times
The procedure is accurate
Collecting saliva samples is non-invasive and safe
The hormones measured in saliva represent those immediately available in the body's cells
Step Three - The Consult
Your personal consult can be scheduled in person or by phone. During your scheduled consultation with one of our highly trained pharmacists, your patient questionnaire and hormone levels will be reviewed, as well as any other concerns you may have. In addition, specific nutritional interventions may be addressed at this time. We guarantee that your human-identical hormone replacement therapy will be individually tailored to meet your body's specific needs.
Step Four - The Prescription
Human-identical hormone replacement therapy requires a prescription from your heath care provider. If your provider is unwilling to write your prescription, we would be happy to provide you with physician recommendations who have written for human hormone replacement.
