What to Expect - Your First Hormone Therapy Consultation
During your hormone therapy consultation, a comprehensive health assessment is taken during which we try to understand the reasons and contributing factors for your hormone imbalances. Combined with functional blood test we can identify your needs and deliver an individualized treatment plan which includes diet and lifestyle counselling, nutriceutical prescriptions, hormone prescriptions and any other therapies that might be identified as necessary. This will ensure that you have the most safe and effective therapy bringing you to the state of optimal health.

Synthetic Hormones vs. Bio-Identical Hormones
Both bioidentical and synthetic hormones are made in a laboratory — the main difference is the raw ingredient. Bioidentical hormones are made from plant sources; synthetic hormones are made from man-made chemical compounds.
Synthetic hormones have a chemical structure that may be similar to but are not exactly the same as the hormones produced by the body. Bioidentical hormones are structurally identical to the hormones your own body produces.
These chemical differences can mean that synthetic hormones act differently in the body and can result in a variety of different side effects. Because bioidentical hormones replicate your own hormones incredibly closely, we find the side effects which are commonly associated with synthetic hormones aren’t experienced, making BHRT a more appealing treatment method for many patients.
The HRT establishment believes that the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach of regular HRT is adequate. But it would be surprising if the same amount was effective for each individual patient. Each patient receiving bioidentical hormone treatment will undergo regular tests to determine the hormone levels already present in their blood and then receive a personalised prescription to achieve and maintain a healthy level if necessary. Patients very much appreciate this focus on their individual needs.
