Hormones regulate our bodies and run our lives. They control most of our body’s basic functions. Hormones act as the internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate digestion, immune function, mood and libido. When hormones are in balance, we look and feel fantastic. When hormones are out of balance, however, it can have a significant impact on health and wellbeing.
While the most common reason for the use of BHRT is in perimenopause and menopause, it can be successfully used to treat conditions such as insulin resistance, fibromyalgia, andropause, low T, adrenal fatigue and thyroid imbalance. BHRT can also be a very effective solution for many symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, sleep disturbances, memory loss or foggy head, weight gain, loss of interest in sex or pain during sex for both men and women.
Bio-identical hormones are prescription medications. They are derived from various sources that are chemically identical to what the body is already producing. Because of this, our bodies are able to respond better to this treatment and often with lower doses. The medications can be administered by pill, topical creams or gels. The dosing is individually tailored and balanced to meet each client’s specific needs.
In her practice, Dr. Panesar uses a combination of blood and saliva testing to find the optimal, individually tailored medication protocol for each patient.
