At Vitality Logix we use only bio-identical hormones.
Bio-identical is a term referring to hormones that are designed to have the same exact structure as those made naturally by the human body – “form fits function.” These formulations, as opposed to synthetic non-human hormone derivatives, have been shown in the medical literature to have a more benign risk profile.
Also, it has been shown that risks of hormone replacement therapy vary by administration route. When given through skin, hormones bypass metabolism in the liver and there is less conversion to harmful compounds. Therefore, at Vitality Logix we use transdermal (given through skin) creams, patches and gels for our hormone replacement regimens. Because hormone therapy has to be individualized, we utilize custom compounding formulas that are made by certified pharmacists to the exact specifications for each individual. This allows Vitality Logix to tailor the treatments to each patient.
