In partnership with Dr Marion Gluck, the Mews Clinic are on a mission to transform women’s lives by empowering them with more options during the menopause. Together they aim to give men and women personalised hormone treatments and the hundreds of client testimonials demonstrate the outstanding results BHRT gets which they shared with me in a recent visit.
Dr Marion Gluck trained as a doctor in Hamburg more than 30 years ago and has since gained global acclaim for her work in women’s health and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
She started working in Australia 20 years ago and began to see the need for a better understanding of hormone therapy and more widespread treatment options for women experiencing issues. Marion believed that every person should have access to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and the benefits needed to be discussed with patients and widely understood.
It became her mission to educate and empower people to take control of their hormonal well-being. Too often people ignore symptoms or fail to seek help because they simply don’t realise that anything is wrong. It was for this reason that she founded The Marion Gluck Clinic. Along with her team of highly trained doctors, she has helped thousands of women and men achieve optimum health and balance. She also set up our own compounding pharmacy, Specialist Pharmacy, where each prescription is prepared to the unique specifications of the patient. It is this personalised approach that has always put the Marion Gluck Clinic at the head of the pack and enabled her to offer the best possible care to the patients treated.
What are Bio-Identical Hormones
Men and women need a balanced endocrine system as hormones regulate our bodily functions. Throughout different stages in our lives, our bodies change. As we age our hormones (oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone) decline, which impact our behaviour and our functioning.
BHRT is a process of rebalancing the naturally occurring hormones which have depleted due to age.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can provide relief from a wide range of symptoms associated with:
- Andropause (male menopause)
- Other hormone-related conditions
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Thyroid dysfunction.
What Symptoms Does BIHT Address
- Mood swings and depression
- Hot flushes and night sweats
- Sleep disturbances
- Low libido
- Sexual dysfunction
- High cholesterol
- Memory loss
- Dry and wrinkled skin
Bio-Identical Hormones are plant-derived hormones that are identical in chemical structure to those found in the human body. The hormones are prescribed and produced based on each individual requirement. They are prepared in a compounding pharmacy.
How Do Bioidentical Hormones Differ From Synthetic Hormones?
Synthetic hormones, have a chemical structure that may be similar to, but not exactly the same as, the hormones produced by the body. These chemical differences can mean that synthetic hormones act differently in the body and can produce different effects.
How Do You Get BIHT?
As BIHT are personalised for you, the initial step is to arrange a consultation with a registered practice, like The Mews Clinic. This will cost from about £200 will take a fully comprehensive history to understand the present concerns. The doctor may take blood or arrange sputum tests. Following this consultation, the blood results are discussed and a plan of prescription mediation is devised specifically for you.
What Are The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones can be very beneficial to patients who are experiencing hormone imbalances and are looking for treatment, or alternatively may have tried synthetic hormone treatments, such as HRT, but had unwanted effects as a result.
Marion Glock on BIHT and Menopause
“As a clinician, I know that when it comes to menopause it is not the hot flushes that we fear the most, but rather the changes to our brain and how it can at times feel like depression, dementia and ADHD all at once! And there is nothing more rewarding than to hear a woman saying that ‘I feel more like myself again’. I admit I loved it when the Dalai Lama said a few years back that ‘… women will save the world’, and I hope that our menopause conversations will bring us closer to ourselves and to each other.”
