Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Women in Reno
Hormones! You prescribe hormones? Why not just give me the cancers cells straight up or on the rocks? My doctor says hormones are dangerous.
In truth, adequate hormone levels are the frame of our house or the fluids in our car. We can place the most expensive furniture from Bloomingdales in our abode, but without an adequate roof, the $5000 couch will turn to dust after the first good rain.
Likewise, our $125,000 dream car won’t last very long without proper maintenance. Hormone sufficiency to our bodies is changing the oil, rotating the tires, checking the brakes, and topping off the fluids in our vintage 1954 Corvette.
As we mature, our bodies no longer produce the same quantity nor the quality of essential hormones. The results are hot flashes, night sweats, brain fog, increasing weight around the middle, agitation, irritability, insomnia, poor libido, headache, and a short temper.
Reno women, if you find yourself identifying with these issues, you may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormones, as opposed to synthetic hormones, are chemically identical to those we manufacture naturally.
Synthetic hormones are altered forms of hormones. These alterations are due to the base they were made in, horse urine, or some manipulation of the natural chemicals to create a “unique” drug. Fortunately or unfortunately, our bodies don’t like being assaulted with artificial chemicals. They react by forming cells around the affected organs. Excess cells=cancer.
The Clearfield Medical Clinic NEVER uses synthetic hormones.
To discover whether hormone replacement therapy is right for you, reach out to Dr. William Clearfield at the Clearfield Medical Group. During a consultation, Dr. C reviews your symptoms and develops a comprehensive program addressing hormone deficiencies.
Understanding Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Options
Depending on the circumstance, the hormones in women in Reno hormone replacement therapy are administered via transdermal creams, gels or lotions, injections, or long-term pellet insertion. A one-and-done pellet insertion lasts 4-5 months.
Dr. C begins with a history and serum, saliva, or urine samples to understand your insufficiencies and deficiencies.
Are you worried about hormone replacement treatments compounded and not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration? We only use hormones developed in PCCA certified pharmacies. The PCCA is the FDA of the compounding world.
