Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Dr Sally has trained at the Marion Gluck clinic in London and offers individualised BHRT therapy for treatment of hormone imbalance.
Bio Identical Hormone therapy uses bio-identical hormones, made from Wild Yam and Soya Beans and are produced to mimic exactly the bodies own hormones. They can be particularly useful for PMT, peri-menopause, menopause and andropause ( low testosterone in men)
Hormone imbalance can cause symptoms such as • Fatigue • Mood swings and depression • Hot flushes and night sweats • Sleep disturbances • Anxiety • Low libido • Osteoporosis • Memory loss • Dry and aging skin • Hair loss and thinning
A BHRT consultation lasts for one hour and during this time a comprehensive medical history will be taken, which will also assess nutrition, lifestyle and health risk factors. Blood tests and other appropriate tests will be organised in order for us to see the ‘full picture’.
Once your blood results have been reviewed, Dr Sally will email you with a copy of your results, your prescription and personalised diet and supplement regime. She may also discuss or prescribe herbal or homeopathic medicine if she feels this is appropriate. This will take approx. 1-2 weeks. You will receive instructions on how to order and use your BHRT prescription and contact details for any queries you may have.
Blood tests prices vary from £80 – £300 depending on which ones are needed, confirmation of the price will be confirmed after your initial consultation.
Follow up appointments are made at regular intervals to assess treatment and take blood levels in order for the prescription to be monitored carefully.
You will be required to have a review at least every six months while undergoing treatment.
If you are taking certain hormones a 6 monthly or annual pelvic ultrasound will be required, we can provide details about where this can be carried out. Price £120.
