Custom Compounded Formulas Designed for You
As one of the leaders in the Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) arena, our specialty division offers patients the ability to obtain customized bio-identical hormones in almost any strength and in different delivery forms. We can compound hormone therapy dosages into small capsules, lozenges and creams and can be delivered straight to your home if desired.
When a doctor prescribes HRT therapy for a person, many times the same medications are needed but in many differing strengths and combinations. Braun will work with your physician to determine the best form to use and incorporate all the different medications into a single dose.
This concept saves patients from buying many different medications with multiple co-pays and enables one co-pay and one dose to cover everything all at once. Easy to use, more economical, less medications to keep track of, while simple and effective.
Bio-identical hormone therapy utilizes chemically identical hormones to supplement your bodies naturally occurring hormones. Bio-identical hormones are manufactured from plant Phytosteroids. These are naturally occurring substances that can be transformed into chemicals identical to those found in the human body.
Bio-Identical HRT therapy is used to treat a wide variety of conditions in both men and women. The most common use of HRT is to mitigate the effects of pre / post menopause. HRT is used to counteract sexual dysfunction, bone density loss, skin degradation, cardiovascular problems, hormone related mood disorders, and a variety of other conditions.
Men will use HRT to supplement lost testosterone. As men age the production of testosterone decreases. This can have unwanted effects. Supplementation with male hormones can offset this decline.
