Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – Personalized Programs
Marika Cherfas, M.D. in Brooklyn uses bioidentical hormones in the treatment plans offered because of the way the chemical composition of bioidentical hormones matches the chemical structure of the hormones found in the human body. This is different from the use of synthetic hormones which do not match the hormones produced by your body.
Using bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones and a personalized approach rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Cherfas effectively reduces and eliminates many of the side-effects of a hormone replacement treatment plan.
Bioidentical hormones are extracted from soy beans, yams, and other plant sources. Once these natural hormones are extracted, they are sent to a compounding pharmacy where a compounding pharmacist creates the medication. The medicine is made in the exact strength and dosage your body needs. Through this process, the compounding pharmacy and Dr. Cherfas work together to create a personalized program that meets your specific physiological needs. Some of the most common hormones replaced are:
While hormones can become imbalanced in early adulthood due to high stress levels, sustained unhealthy habits, exhaustion and overwork, imbalances often correct themselves due to youth. However, as you age it becomes more difficult for the body to heal itself. As hormone levels drop you may begin to experience symptoms of age-related hormonal decline. Some of the symptoms you may experience due to imbalanced hormones are:
- Digestive Issues
