● I’m gaining so much weight! My muscles have turned to flab!
● I can’t think straight – my memory’s gone!
● I’m so depressed and exhausted all the time.
● I haven’t slept well for years!
These comments are all in a day’s work for Jeff Barton, RPh, Pharmacist and Owner of Custom Dosing Pharmacy.
Barton, who specializes in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, announced an upcoming seminar to be held at his new state-of-the-art Compounding Pharmacy located at 1000 Breuckman Drive in Crown Point. The Seminar, entitled FEEL GREAT– AGAIN!, will highlight the exciting health benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for both men and women.
“Hormones aren’t just for menopause anymore!” smiles Barton, who works closely with local physicians and their patients to individually compound custom-made BioIdentical hormone preparations.
“Hormones protect our health, mood and memory; they keep us young, vigorous, strong and sexy. Our hormones give us our energy, positive attitude, drive and zest for living. Balanced hormones make us feel happy, peaceful and enthusiastic; they actually protect us from cancers, Alzheimer’s Disease, Heart Disease, Osteoporosis and other diseases of aging. BioIdentical hormones can even help us manage our weight and cholesterol!”
After age 25, both men and women lose 2 – 3% of many hormones each year. These are hormones that are critical for maintaining youth, health and vigor! By age 50, a menopausal woman may have lost up to 90% of key hormones. Those hormone deficiencies grab our attention with symptoms that make us miserable. Because people are living longer, it’s essential to reinfuse BioIdentical hormones back into their bodies to put the joy and energy into the second half of their lives.
Most people typically associate Hormone Therapy with only menopausal women but, the truth is, anyone – man or woman — can be suffering from Hormone deficiencies or imbalances!

“BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can actually reverse many conditions or symptoms we’ve come to associate with aging. We can also restore the tremendous protective benefits that were originally provided by our body’s naturally occurring hormones,” says Barton.
BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an all-natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement. Synthetic hormones are patented, animal-derived (made from horse urine) or artificial hormones. Our bodies can tell the difference between “Bio-Identical” hormones and synthetic hormones. Most of the side effects associated with hormone replacement therapy seem to result from the fact that, if synthetic hormones given, they are not chemically identical to the hormones our bodies produce.
“When hormones, lost through aging, stress or surgery, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy replaces them with hormones that are chemically identical to the ones our bodies produce,” Barton explained. The molecular structure is identical to the hormones produced in our bodies. Our body is perfectly suited to receive and use the Bio-Identical Hormone just as it used its own naturally produced hormone.
Synthetic hormones (such as Premarin) are chemically altered and are not identical to the hormones your body requires. Uncomfortable side effects from synthetic hormones, such as weight gain, depression and bloating, are the most cited reasons women quit their synthetic hormone treatments. “All you have to do is take a look at the warnings that come with synthetic hormones to know that there are risks involved,” states Barton.
