HRT For Women
What is Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The goal of Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is to restore and maintain hormone balance with hormones that have similar chemical structures to the hormones produced by the human body.
Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy involves the use of natural, plant-derived hormones. These hormones that occur naturally in the body cannot be patented. Manufacturers lack the financial incentive to commercially market these substances.
While more and more U.S. physicians are becoming aware of these natural hormones, European physicians have been prescribing them for many years. These hormones can be custom compounded to match each patient’s individual needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach used with off-the-shelf hormones.
Hormone therapy requires appropriate testing, examination, and discussion of symptoms with a healthcare practitioner. We can help you find a practitioner who has experience with Natural Hormone Replacement Therapies.

At SandsRx Pharmacy we can compound NATURAL PLANT-DERIVED HORMONES as an option for women who need Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Since plant derived natural hormones are biologically similar to the hormones that a woman’s body produced when she was younger, the woman’s body can potentially regain its natural balance.
Examples of natural, plant-derived hormones include:
The possible benefit of HRT is that it can be adapted to supplement your already existing hormone levels.
You are your own unique individual. Why not have your own individualized hormone replacement therapy customized to meet your unique needs?
Our Compounding Pharmacists work very closely with physicians so that a woman can start and maintain a hormone regimen that closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years.
EACH WOMAN IS UNIQUE: Because no two women are alike, natural hormones can be made in a variety of strengths and combinations of hormones including: Estriol, Estradiol, Bi-Estrogens (Estriol, Estradiol), Tri-Estrogens (Estriol, Estradiol, Estrone), Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, and combinations of Pregnenolone.
Some common dosage forms include:
- Troche (Lozenge) that can be dissolved in the mouth for quick absorption. This unique dosage form can be flavored with over 100 available flavors.

- Vaginal Suppositories and Vaginal Creams
- Sublingual Drops
All Compounded hormone therapies are customized in the strength and dosage forms that are unique to your INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. With a choice of over 100 Flavors, we can make just about any medication taste better.
Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy offers many potential benefits. A woman should discuss these newly available alternatives with her physician, and ask important questions in order to decide which therapy might be most beneficial in meeting her unique needs.

We can discuss the options available that can potentially help increase sexual desire, orgasmic climax, and naturally replenish vaginal moisture to help make sexual activity truly enjoyable again.
