Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) at Warren's Drug Store
Welcome to Warren's Drug Store, where we prioritize your hormonal well-being through personalized Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Learn about the importance of hormones and how BHRT can address various symptoms to enhance your overall health.
What is BHRT?
Bio-Identical Hormones are replacement hormones that, once absorbed by the human body, are converted to the exact chemical/molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced. This natural approach reduces side effects compared to synthetic alternatives. At Warren's Drug Store, we specialize in BHRT to help you achieve hormonal balance.
Hormones We Test
Estradiol, Estrone, Estriol: Predominantly female hormones crucial for reproductive tissues, breast health, skin, and brain function.
Excessive Estrogens: Can lead to fluid retention, weight gain, migraines, and increased cancer risks.
Insufficient Estrogen: May result in hot flushes, vaginal dryness, rapid skin aging, urinary problems, bone loss, and potential acceleration of dementia.
Hormonal balancer, particularly for estrogens.
Enhances the beneficial effects of estrogens while preventing problems associated with estrogen excess.
Important for both women and men; recently appreciated for maintaining prostate health in men.
Testosterone, DHEA, and Androstenedione: Vital for tissue regeneration, skin, bones, and muscles.
DHEA: Declines with age; supplementation can restore energy, improve immune function, and enhance mental well-being.
Testosterone: Maintains lean body mass, bone density, skin elasticity, sex drive, and cardiovascular health in both sexes.
Androstenedione: Precursor for estrogens and testosterone; plays a role in symptoms like scalp hair loss and facial hair growth in women.
Produced in response to stressors; essential for immune function.
Chronic elevated cortisol levels can suppress the immune system and predispose to frequent infections.
Testing at different times throughout the day reveals circadian rhythm and helps diagnose adrenal fatigue.

As a new patient, you have two options to start your BHRT journey. You can either opt for saliva testing right away or allow our experienced staff to evaluate your personal hormone profile first. This evaluation may lead to recommendations for saliva testing or direct consultation.
Communication is key in this process. Begin by expressing your interest in BHRT to your healthcare provider. Our role is to make therapy recommendations, and collaboration with your provider is essential for a cohesive approach.
Our journey together starts with an initial consultation. This consultation covers face-to-face, phone, or email communication. It also includes any necessary communication with your provider.
While we prefer face-to-face interactions, we understand the current circumstances, and our communication channels have adapted to phone and email interactions. It is important to us that you fully comprehend our process, from evaluating your profile and saliva labs to understanding the reasons behind our therapy recommendations.
We recommend committing to at least six months of working with us to allow the program to deliver optimal results. Our journey starts by examining the detailed patient profile you fill out. This profile provides valuable insights into your hormone history, family history, medical history, and symptoms.
Based on the information provided, we may communicate with your provider about supplementation. If there is ambiguity, we typically recommend saliva testing as the initial step. Whether starting with saliva testing or leveraging your profile, our results-driven approach ensures a personalized and effective course of action.
Your hormonal well-being matters to us. Contact Warren's Drug Store to begin your BHRT journey today.
Are you a candidate for BHRT?
Some women just know when they are not feeling “quite right” or “like they used to.” To help answer this question, ask yourself:
1. Are you experiencing persistent symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance?
- Consider symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, low libido, or changes in skin and hair.
2. Have you noticed changes in your menstrual cycle or reproductive health?
- Irregular periods, heavy bleeding, or other menstrual irregularities may indicate hormonal fluctuations.
3. Do you suffer from symptoms of menopause or perimenopause?
- Evaluate if you are experiencing common menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness, insomnia, or changes in bone density.
4. Have you observed changes in mood, including anxiety or depression?
- Hormonal imbalances can impact mood and contribute to feelings of anxiety or depression.
5. Are you facing challenges with weight management, including unexplained weight gain or difficulty losing weight?
- Hormonal changes can affect metabolism and weight distribution.
6. Have you noticed changes in your skin, hair, or overall vitality?
- Hormonal fluctuations can manifest in changes to skin elasticity, hair texture, and overall energy levels.
7. Are you experiencing symptoms related to adrenal fatigue or chronic stress?
- Symptoms such as chronic fatigue, difficulty handling stress, or disruptions in sleep patterns may indicate adrenal imbalances.
It's essential to note that these questions are a starting point, and consulting with a healthcare professional, along with hormone testing, is crucial for accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment recommendations. If you answer affirmatively to several of these questions, it may be an indication to explore Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy with the guidance of a qualified healthcare provider.
