As we age, our bodies will naturally begin to produce less hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. However, this natural decrease can throw our hormones and our bodies out of whack! Women can begin to experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, and weight gain just to name a few. Men can often experience a lack of energy, decrease drive, and erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, we don’t have to simply accept these problems. We can do something to regain the natural balance that allows our body to function as it should – that’s where Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy comes in!
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement or BHRT is the practice of using hormones such as estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone in the right ratios to achieve the balance our body desires. The hormones we use at Collier Compounding have the same structure to those we would naturally produce; hence Bio- (Biologically) Identical. We like to explain BHRT as supplementing what the body would naturally make, rather than adding a medication that the body may see as “foreign” to it.
We also understand that no two patients are exactly alike. That is why compounding is so great for BHRT! We can customize a dose that meets YOUR needs and addresses YOUR concerns! At Collier Compounding, we offer a BHRT consultation service that includes saliva hormone testing and an in-depth one-on-one consultation with our BHRT specialist pharmacist. Following your consultation, we will make a custom recommendation to send to your physician to review and return to us. We have worked hard to build trusting relationships with many prescribers in the area and we are always willing to discuss your situation with your doctor to answer any questions.

Which Wellness Program is Right for Me?
There are many symptoms that are associated with hormone imbalance, chronic stress, or both. Use our helpful tool below to identify which Wellness Program would be the best fit for you.
Hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, decreased energy and low libido – These are just some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance that millions of women experience on a daily basis. Most women’s bodies naturally transition from the reproductive years to the post reproductive years. Some women pass through this stage of life with few symptoms, while for other’s it can be debilitating. Symptoms can often begin early during Perimenopause (typically between the ages of 40-50) and can last well into Menopause (the time after your final menstrual period). Proper hormone balance can help reduce or eliminate these symptoms and get you back to feeling like yourself again.
Our method often includes the use of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). BHRT is a process of restoring and maintaining hormone balances with hormones that are biologically identical to the ones produced by our body. Bio-identical hormones have been available and used in hormone treatments for decades. They can be custom compounded to match your unique needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach used with off-the-shelf hormones. We use saliva testing to give us a clear picture of what your hormones are doing in your body. For more information about hormone saliva testing, read our article, “What is a Saliva Test?”.
At Collier Compounding, our expertly trained hormone specialists can help you navigate through the complex world of hormone balance. We understand that no two women are exactly alike, and it is our goal to take a customized approach to your health. We offer a Personal Consultation Process that is designed to address your individual concerns in a one-on-one setting with our hormone specialist. Time will be spent discussing the results of your saliva test, the symptoms you are experiencing, where your individual imbalances are occurring, and what our plan is to begin restoring your hormone balance.
We also believe in using a team approach when it comes to treating a patient and will communicate our plan to your doctor so that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goal. We rely on your physician’s approval before we can compound your prescription.

Guys often have trouble admitting something is wrong. Not you, but those other guys, right? In no area is this a more common occurrence than when it comes to health concerns. Sometimes guys don’t want to admit they’re getting older or that they just don’t feel the same. As men age, they can experience symptoms like decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, depressed mood, and fatigue. Rather than accepting this as the “new normal” let’s see what can be done about it!
Low testosterone is often a common cause of these symptoms, however, at Collier Compounding we understand that these symptoms can also be caused by imbalances in other areas of men’s hormone health. To learn more about the complete male hormone panel, click here.
We offer a unique consultation designed for men that may be experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance (also known as Andropause). We typically use a saliva test to take a complete look at your testosterone and some other related hormone levels to get a clear picture of where you are. We can also provide a recommended lab profile list to take to your doctor if you prefer to complete labs in your doctor’s office. Once we receive your lab values, one of our expertly trained pharmacists will meet with you to discuss your test results and the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Following your consultation, our pharmacist will develop a recommendation for your doctor to review. We offer multiple dosing options for different therapies to treat male hormone imbalance including Testosterone therapy and erectile dysfunction. Once approved by your doctor, we can get you back on the road to balance.
