A Portland area doctor describes bio-identical hormone replacement
Patients who visit the practice of Dr. Adam Maddox regarding hormone therapy treatments for age management may be introduced to BHRT (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy). They may have asked their primary doctor about how to address the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post menopause in a holistic manner. Dr. Adam Maddox of Portland, Oregon can educate patients on the advantages of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is commonly used for women who are interested in balancing their hormones during the “change of life.” Treatments consist of a unique combination of hormones that are made for each individual based on testing that represents the current hormonal levels. A prescription for BHRT is made based on a series of tests performed by Dr. Adam Maddox during the consultation process to determine which specific hormones are low and need to be adjusted. BHRT is done with unique compounds that are processed to create identical replicas of human hormones and are derived from natural means. This ensures they are a biocompatible option compared to various medications and it allows patients to deal with hormone imbalances in a more natural manner.
BHRT is administered in different ways including static dosing and rhythmic cycling, depending on the needs of the patient and their natural hormone cycle. Several tests must be done to determine the levels of hormones in the body during their cycle and as menopause continues. This allows the hormones to be added during the proper rhythm for a natural approach.
