Quinpool Wellness Centre – Nova Scotia Bioidentical Hormones

Nova Scotia Bioidentical Hormones Clinic, Quinpool Wellness Centre’s approach is to individualize a treatment plan for each patient based on medical history, physical examination, symptoms and laboratory analysis. The prescription is tailored to the exact amount of each hormone needed for the individual’s balance in Nova Scotia. Each individualized treatment plan focuses on Bioidentical Hormone restoration and optimization.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

In traditional hormone replacement therapy the hormones do not fit the body’s hormone receptors perfectly and can alter the receptors and cause damage to the DNA. This can lead to some of the side-effects associated with the use of synthetic hormones.

The advantage of bio-identical hormones is that they have the same molecular structure as our body’s natural hormones. This enables them to attach easily to the hormone receptors in our body and form a perfect fit, and the body recognizes them as if they were the body’s natural hormones. This means that they elicit the same physiological responses as the natural hormones they are replacing, and they provide a natural way for the body to restore its youthful hormonal balance.

Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, which prescribes a standard dose for all women, bio-identical hormones are custom formulated for each individual patient. The first step is to obtain a baseline reading of hormone levels. The most accurate way to do this is through a Hormone Saliva Test Kit.
