Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Teresa, at Chameleons Hair and Scalp is qualified in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with the famous Marion Gluck Training Academy.  This therapy specialises in hormone balancing therapy which uses bioidentical hormones.

Hormones serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout your body, from your brain to your heart. Your hormones can have a huge impact on your health and well-being. They co-ordinate digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, otherwise known as BHRT mixes a special blend of hormones. This corrects hormonal imbalances and replaces hormones that deplete in our bodies as we age.  It can enhance our quality of life as we age.  BHRT or natural hormone therapy as it is known is used to treat hormonal problems in both men and women.

The Marion Gluck Method which Teresa practices has been based upon a full understanding of patients.  Before BHRT is used, Teresa will gain a full medical insight from a thorough consultation. This will include lifestyle history and relevant medical tests. This information will enable Teresa to create a treatment plan. This will optimise your health, energy, and way of life.

As men and women age, the levels of some key hormones in the body go down. These include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
