Hormone Replacement
 
Definition

Natural Hormone Replacement (NHR) utilises natural forms of hormones and aims to achieve a balance that is individualised for the patient. In contrast, conventional HRT uses a limited repertoire of synthetic versions of hormones with greater risk of side effects.

 
 
How It Works

NHR uses various doses of natural oestrogens (oestriol, oestradiol, oestrone), progesterone, DHEA and testosterone as determined by prior testing for blood levels of the relevant hormones. Often progesterone is indicated in many cases due to oestrogen dominant symptoms and conditions. The aim is to achieve normal physiological levels of these hormones in the right balance for optimum health.

 
 
Conditions

NHR is particularly indicated for women in the menopausal years for symptom relief as well as long-term protection against cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. It is also very useful for the treatment of endometriosis, fibroids, fibrocystic breast disease, infertility, symptoms of ‘oestrogen dominance’, and PCOS.

 
 
Expect

A thorough history will be taken, including reproductive and general health assessment. Blood or saliva testing for hormone levels may be utilised to individualise treatment. You will be prescribed creams and/or lozenges that deliver the hormones via the skin or through absorption in the mouth.

 
 
Education

Doctors with additional training in the prescription of NHR may be members of ACNEM, the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine or AIMA, the Australian Integrative Medical Association.
