Local center offers customized hormonal replacement therapy, anti-aging makeovers The medication compounding specialists at Nie’s Pharmacy & Wellness Center in Independence, Ky., work together with patients and prescribers to provide customized hormone replacement therapy that provides the needed hormones in the most appropriate strength and dosage to meet each woman’s specific needs. Hormone replacement therapy should be initiated carefully after a woman's medical and family history is reviewed. Every woman is unique and will respond to therapy in her own way. Close monitoring and medication

adjustments are essential. Research has long held that there are significant differences between hormones that are natural to humans (bioidentical) and synthetic preparations. Structural differences (side chains) that exist between synthetic or animal and human hormones may be responsible for side effects that are experienced when non-bioidentical hormones are used. Structural differences exist between human and synthetic and animal hormones. In order for a replacement hormone to fully replicate the func-

tion of hormones which were originally naturally produced and present in the human body, the chemical structure must exactly match the original. There are significant differences between hormones that are natural to humans and synthetic or horse preparations. In addition to appropriate dosing on prescribed hormones, a patient may have nutrient needs that can affect her overall sense of wellbeing. Other issues such as stress, sleep and lifestyle choices can affect the patients overall health. Nie’s Pharmacy
