Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) Program at Tache Pharmacy
Although hormone imbalance is common, it can be a complicated topic. Many hormones are interrelated wherein levels of one hormone can affect the functioning of another. Therefore, hormone therapy recommendations can benefit from specialized knowledge about such hormone relationships. In-depth knowledge of hormone imbalances as they relate to common symptoms such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, foggy thinking, memory lapses, anxiety, depression, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and vaginal dryness is also essential in order to make suggestions to correct hormone imbalance. Finally, knowledge of lifestyle factors (stress reduction, sleep hygiene, diet, and exercise) as well as supplements (vitamins, minerals, and herbals) can aid in optimizing an individual’s overall health and well-being.
At Tache Pharmacy we offer one-on-one consultations with pharmacists who have had specialized training in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to provide personalized recommendations to help restore hormone balance. To make our recommendations, we focus on a detailed health questionnaire completed by each patient (including treatment goals, medical history, and symptom inventory), along with saliva testing (optional but strongly suggested), to assure the most appropriate advice can be given. A personalized hormone report is prepared along with a physician report if any bioidentical hormones are being suggested. We also provide follow up to each patient, usually at one and three month intervals, to monitor progress and as required if any issues arise. Most patients notice symptom improvement and tolerate bioidentical hormone therapy very well. It is also important to mention that Tache Pharmacy is proud member of PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) and can compound your custom-made bioidentical hormone preparation in our compounding department. Tache Pharmacy has helped numerous patients restore hormone balance since it established the bioidentical hormone therapy program in 2002. Every effort is made to supply you with the most up-to-date information and best advice that we can provide.
