Hormone Replacement

Programme Description

Natural Hormone Replacement (NHR) for men and women involves an individualised approach to hormonal balancing. Therefore it is important firstly to assess your current hormonal levels through blood, saliva and/or urine tests. Then varying doses of different hormones (For example, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA) are utilised to customise a program for the medium to long term. Tests may be used to monitor your progress and ensure adequate hormonal levels.

 
 
Duration Of Programme

You will be monitored initially for any side-effects or reactions to the NHR, and monitored over the first few months of the program to ensure that your hormone levels are adequate. You will then only need to see your doctor for repeat prescriptions and blood tests on an occasional basis, unless your health changes.

 
 
Success And Results

Because hormones are naturally long acting substances in the body, results may take a number of weeks to achieve. Sometimes specific symptoms or concerns will resolve fairly quickly, other times the aim is to reduce the risk of long term problems and therefore long term use is necessary.

 
 
YourHealth Practitioner/s That Conduct The Programme

Dr Peter Lewis and Dr Joachim Fluhrer conduct the NHR program. They may refer to other practitioners within YourHealth for Acupuncture, TCM, Herbal or Nutritional Medicine.
