What You Need to Know About Getting Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Canada

Here at Pagdin Health, our mantra is “Living Longer Better,” and one of the fundamental ways we do that is through a program called Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). What is bio-identical? Well, it’s straightforward. It just means identical to life. Bio is life, so we would offer you a hormone replacement identical to the one that would typically be in your body.

Keep in mind that the number of hormones will decline as we age. The obvious ones for women in menopause are estrogen and progesterone, but other hormones are going on that are a little less obvious. Women can also suffer from a lack of testosterone, dramatically affecting libido. For men, the drop-off in testosterone is what we call andropause, which happens quite a bit more gradually than the hormone drop-off for women during menopause. Nevertheless, men need to keep up their youthful vigor and enthusiasm for life, their muscle and bone strength, and their sex drive by supplementing some testosterone if it starts to decline. So, these are all essential things to have analyzed if you want to optimize your aging.

Here at Pagdin Health, we have patients from coast to coast across Canada. My license as a Medical Doctor allows me to order tests in any province and to order prescriptions in any province because my license has reciprocity across provincial borders. For Naturopathic Doctors, however, their license is confined to the province where they practice. So, Dr. Garrison and I have a system of teamwork where we debrief our cases at the end of every day. If there are some cases that Dr. Garrison is following where the patient comes from a different province, then you can rest assured that I will be looking after your prescriptions and your blood tests for the province where you’re situated.

So here at Pagdin Health, we have developed a great degree of expertise in bio-identical hormone replacement, and we can accept patients from across Canada.
