Bioidentical hormones (BHRT) are a key part of restoring health for many men and women. Dr. Klug has been prescribing them since 2003. The demands of 21st century life tax a great many people. BHRT can help you meet those demands. Energy, well-being, strength, stamina, memory, focus, quality sleep, mental health, sex drive, vaginal moisture, erectile performance, resilience in the face of stress, healthy bone and muscle mass, cardiovascular health, and healthier fat to muscle ratios are just some of the benefits--all without the side effects of conventional hormones or medications commonly used to treat theses issues. Additionally, Dr. Klug has seen improvements in fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, irregular, heavy or painful periods and Peyronies disease with BHRT.
Dr. Klug most commonly uses estriol, estradiol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone as well as porcine (Armour) and bioidentical thyroid hormones. These hormones are necessary for optimal health, as are the compounds the body makes from them. For example, the adrenal glands use progesterone, DHEA, and pregnenolone to make the corticosteroids vital for managing physical, mental, and emotional stress, and healthy immune system activity. Many patients note reduced seasonal allergy symptoms, fewer colds and overall better coping with stressors. BHRT is critical to treating most chronic illnesses.
Dr. Klug determines your individualized hormone prescription based on your needs, history, physical exam and laboratory tests. She exclusively uses transdermal and liposomal delivery systems that avoid the risks of liver metabolism. Your indvidualized hormone prescription is custom made for you by compounding pharmacy. Dr. Klug uses several compounding pharmacies in the area for your convenience.
Dr. Klug’s regimens always include dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements and self-care techniques to maximize the effectiveness of your BHRT and address other issues, whether they are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
