Evidence abounds surrounding the use of personalisation in medicine.  More and more when medicines are prescribed, several factors are taken into consideration that result in the tailoring of medicines to individual patients.

Considerations can be as simple as altering dosage for height and weight, or as complex as genomic testing for fast or slow metabolism of individual medicines.

However, one area of medicine that has been shown to benefit greatly from customisation is menopause.

Often referred to as “the symphony of hormones,” a woman’s endocrine balance is considered a complex and fluid cycle.  The use of the tools for balancing these hormones can vary greatly from woman to woman.

As such, it is important that patient be clinically led in their hormone balancing program.

Since the “unopposed Estrogen” segment of the Women’s Health Initiative was halted in 2004 – originally citing the increased risk of breast cancer in the participants of the study who were undergoing conventional HRT – many women have turned to BHRT for the level of customisation it offers, and to find comfort that these hormones are BioIdentical.

Hormonal balancing in women is a delicate process and one that requires the delicate tools provided by the customisation of a compounding pharmacy.
