Hawkstone has become a well-known compounding pharmacy in Edmonton. Bioidentical hormones are promoted and used to alleviate health issues, the most common of which is menopausal symptoms.
Bioidentical hormones have received a lot of attention in the media over the past number of years, including celebrity endorsements and media debates.
Are they right for you?
The truth is, as always, it depends. There is no one-size-fits-all plan for universal wellbeing and health. Ailments are unique to individuals and their level of comfort in trying new medications.
Our approach is to encourage an open discussion between your doctor and our compounding pharmacists – only then can you make informed decisions.
Compounding and Bioidentical? What do they mean?
At one time, almost all medications were custom-made and individualized through combining raw ingredients. In fact, pharmacists are still called chemists in many parts of the world. Today, commercial manufacturers provide most medications to pharmacies, and regulatory bodies have enacted standardization policies for most medications.
While many of the bigger players in the pharmacy business do not provide this level of customized service, a number of pharmacies still do. Hawkstone is proud to be among the best-known compounding pharmacies in the Edmonton area.
