Anxiety Snapshot can be a place to start if you are searching for information about anxiety. Are you feeling more anxious than usual?

Anxiety

Are you “feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen”?

In Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety: Anxiety – What Is Anxiety? the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health elaborate on:

“Anxiety is part of being human. Everyone experiences it. We describe anxiety as feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen. Anxiety can happen when we’re about to give a speech at a wedding or at work, while driving a car, going to meet with our child’s teacher, or looking down from the top of a skyscraper. It can also occur when we worry about climate change, whether our children will have jobs when they grow up, or if someone could hurt us or someone we love”.

Anxiety Disorders

Does your anxiety refuse to go away?

In Anxiety Disorders: Overview the (United States) National Institute of Mental Health explain:

Anxiety Snapshot

“Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships”.

Bioidentical Hormones Snapshot can be a place to start if you are searching for information about bioidentical hormones, pharmacy-compounded hormones or custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations.

Definition

What are bioidentical hormones?

In Menopause Management: Pharmacy-Compounded Hormones the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health explain:

“Pharmacy-compounded hormones (sometimes referred to as bioidentical hormones) are mixtures of hormones made in compounding pharmacies that are promoted as hormones ‘exactly like our own’ hormones. They can contain oestrogens, progesterone and sometimes other hormones such as testosterone.

The hormones are made into capsules, creams, gels, drops applied to the tongue, lozenges or troches (soft square-shaped tablets) sucked in the cheek”.

Natural or Not

Are bioidentical hormones natural?

In Bioidentical Custom Compounded Hormone Therapy the Australasian Menopause Society elaborate on:

“It is important to realise that no hormone used in any preparation of pharmaceutical grade menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) or compounded “bioidentical therapy” is ‘natural’. They are all synthesised in the laboratory from some precursor by enzymatic manipulation”.

Safe or Not

Are bioidentical hormones safe?

In Menopausal Symptoms: In Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Other Complementary Approaches – Bioidentical Hormones the (United States) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health note:

  • “It’s been claimed that custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations are more effective and safer than conventional hormone therapy, but scientific evidence to support this idea is lacking. Custom-mixed bioidentical hormones may actually be riskier than conventional treatment because less is known about their safety. Also, no regulatory agency oversees their preparation, and therefore their content may vary from batch to batch”.

‘Natural’ Hormone Therapy

Are ‘natural’ hormone therapy options available?

In Menopause FAQs: Hormone Therapy for menopause Symptoms – Q. I’ve heard about something called bioidentical hormones. What are they? the North American Menopause Society’s (NAMS) elaborate on:

“A. …Bioidentical hormones do not have to be custom-compounded (meaning custom mixed). There are many well-tested, FDA-approved hormone therapy products that meet this definition and are commercially available from retail pharmacies in a variety of doses that will allow you and your doctor to customize your therapy to meet your needs”.
