How does hormone balancing work?
Hormone replacement therapy works by artificially substituting hormone production that your body would have made in younger years. There are a variety of hormone choices since many pharmaceutical companies have introduced Hormone Replacement Therapy products to the market.
More recently there has been a trend also to use bio-identical hormones for hormone replacement. London now has a facility for formulating bespoke hormone products.
Where are bio-identical hormones derived from?
Bio-identical hormones are derived from diosgenin, a molecule found in Mexican yams which can be converted into human hormones. They are derived from a plant source but the molecule itself is exactly the same as the hormones that humans produce.
There has been much controversy over the years about the safety of conventional HRT and it’s thought that it is the synthetic progestogen component that has some potential side effects. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses bio-identical progesterone which has none of the risks of synthetic progestogen.
How long does hormone balancing therapy take?
Some women take hormones for the menopause and decide to stay on the treatment for many years. As the decades pass, your hormone requirement will go down and the dose may need to be adjusted from time to time, appropriate to age and requirements.
How many treatments are necessary?
From time to time you may need a review and some blood tests to ensure you are receiving the appropriate hormone treatment.
How much does our hormone balancing therapy cost?
A standard Hormone Replacement Therapy regime for bio-identical hormones will probably cost less than £50 per month.
