Now offering bioidentical hormones!

I am pleased to announce we are now offering bio-identical hormone prescriptions. Bio-identical hormones match exactly the chemical structure of hormones found naturally in the body. They are synthesized from yam and soy extracts and can be compounded in a formula that is individualized for you. Bio-identical hormones available are progesterone and estrogen and they are applied topically to the skin.

Common uses of bio-identical hormones include menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, depression, irritability, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and low libido. Progesterone is often used in younger women to trigger ovulation, regulate menstrual cycles and in the first trimester of pregnancy to prevent miscarriage.

In addition to bio-identical hormones, we are also offering dessicated thyroid known as Erfa or Armour. Dessicated thyroid is sourced from a pig’s thyroid gland and provides thyroid stimulating hormone as well as the thyroid hormones known as T4 and T3. This product is useful for symptoms of Hypothyroidism such as weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, constipation and other digestive issues, low energy, low libido, depression, low iron and high cholesterol.

If you are interested in bio-identical hormones or dessicated thyroid please book an appointment to assess if they are right for you. Both require a prescription which can be filled at NutriChem Compounding Pharmacy. We can fax them the prescription and they offer free delivery in Ottawa.
