center for pharmaceutical compounding
compounded hormone therapy
The Center for Pharmaceutical Compounding has a history of working closely with healthcare providers in the Portage, Kalamazoo and surrounding areas assisting women and men who are experiencing various types of hormonal imbalances. An imbalance of sex hormones, including but not limited to, DHEA, estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), progesterone, testosterone and pregnenolone, can affect the overall wellness of the entire body because every organ system uses sex hormones to maintain optimal health.
Our consultation process allows us to apply integrative, science-based therapies to help promote wellness focusing on the biochemically unique aspects of each patient. Using individually tailored interventions to restore balance, we emphasize the cause of the symptom rather than the symptom itself.
Traditionally, providers in the United States have treated hormone imbalances in women with commercially available products containing synthetic estrogens and progestins. Not all, but most of the commercial products available contain hormones that are not identical in chemical structure to the hormones produced by the body naturally. There are also a limited number of strengths available making it impossible to customize based on each patient’s individual needs. The exact chemical structures of human sex hormones are known and can be reproduced using precursors found in plants such as yams or soy. Our compounded end product, created specifically for you, will have the exact same chemical structure of the hormones produced by your body.
Like your fingerprint, your hormonal make-up is unique. Customization of hormone replacement therapies is crucial to obtain optimal results when considering both symptom control and long-term benefits for your well-being and overall health.
Common Symptoms for Women
Symptoms of hormone imbalances in women may include hot flashes, night sweats, disrupted sleep, loss of sexual function and/or interest, fatigue, loss of cognitive function, loss of memory, irritability, anxiety, depression, vaginal dryness, irregular cycles or bleeding, PMS, and increased risk of osteoporosis.
Common Symptoms for Men
Symptoms of hormone imbalances in men may include disrupted sleep, loss of sexual function and/or interest, fatigue, loss of cognitive function, loss of memory, irritability, anxiety, depression, decreased muscle mass, decreased physical stamina, hair loss and increased risk of osteoporosis.
In order to optimize hormonal balance, the presence of Adrenal Fatigue will be assessed during your consultation. Adrenal Fatigue results when the adrenal glands function at a suboptimal level. Because Adrenal Fatigue can directly affect the balance of sex hormones and an imbalance can cause stress on the body and affect adrenal function, it is important to assess both to effectively achieve and maintain hormonal balance in the body.
Dr. James L. Wilson, author of “Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome,” developed a questionnaire which we use during our consultations to help determine if you may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue. Click here to view the Adrenal Fatigue Questionnaire.
Considering that each man and woman is unique in his/her hormonal makeup and hormonal needs, we have developed an in-depth consultation methodology to work towards achieving and maintaining hormonal balance. Purvi Peake, PharmD, FAARFM, has completed a fellowship through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) in Anti-Aging, Regenerative & Functional Medicine and receives periodic advanced training when applicable. She has successfully helped thousands of women and men achieve balance through CHT.
