Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Bio-identical hormones are created using plant extracts and processed to be molecularly identical to the hormones our own bodies produce. We regularly prepare transdermal creams, vaginal creams, and oral capsules, using estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, or thyroid hormones (T3 and T4).
Low Dose Naltrexone
An excellent example of the benefits of customized compounds, naltrexone is a medication which has seen a recent resurgence in research and popularity at much lower doses than what is commercially available. It is being used with great results in a wide range of autoimmune diseases, cancers, and neuropathic pain syndromes. It appears to be very safe, with minimal side effects being reported. Typical dosing ranges from 1.5-4.5 mg per day.
Salt Spring Iron Formula
A local favourite, this excellent formula is prepared on-site using iron fumarate, vitamin C, vitamin B12, and folic acid. Dosages of 37.5, 75, and 150 mg elemental iron per capsule are available over the counter.
Pharmaceutical Compounding Services
We offer a broad range of compounding options for those who require specialized medications. Compounded medications can be tailored to suit your own needs, such as avoidance of allergies and sensitivities, individualized dosages, and unique formulations.
Veterinary medicine, whether for livestock or the family pets, will often benefit greatly from custom compounding. Medicines can be prepared as a simple capsule, a topical gel or cream, or even a flavoured treat - anything from grilled chicken to roast beef to blueberry flavours are available. The dosage requirements, and unique characteristics of different species and individuals, means that custom compounding permits your veterinarian to choose the exact right dose for your animals' needs.
