Dunwoody Pharmacy Offers Personalized Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Millions of men and women, from every age and background, experience some form of hormone-related health condition during their lifetimes. For many people, help comes in the form of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
There are many mass-produced hormone treatments on the market today. However, every woman’s body – and her individual hormonal makeup – is different, and each requires a unique balance of hormones. That’s why more women are turning to custom compounded BHRT from Dunwoody Pharmacy for their hormone replacement needs.
Dunwoody Pharmacy believes in natural hormones, or bio-Identical, which are sourced from plants. Precursor molecules from plants such as yam and soybean are readily processed into hormones such as progesterone, estradiol and testosterone. Our knowledgeable and fully licensed Pharmacists follow strict PCAB accredited guidelines to formulate specific hormones for each patient’s optimal health.

How it Works - Women
Bio-identical hormones have the exact same chemical structure as human hormones. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own. BHRT may be useful for relieving the symptoms of a variety of conditions common among women of all ages, including:
How It Works – Men’s
The primary hormone in men is testosterone. As age increases, testosterone levels decline and can lead to a condition known as andropause or more commonly “low-T.” Testosterone deficiency may lead to decreased concentration, lethargy, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and depression among other side effects. There are several effective products that exist on the commercial market to help with symptom management. However, if your “Low-T” treatment is not a good fit, our compounding pharmacist can work with your doctor to create a testosterone formulation for you. And, Dunwoody is proud to use AtrevisTM Hydrogel from PCCA. AtrevisTM provides great absorption, potentially reducing the testosterone dosage needed for optimal health and the potential associated side effects.
Please note, serious side effects have been reported with testosterone including the following:
