Bioidentical hormone therapy

Bioidentical hormone therapy

What are hormones?

Humans, animals and plants share one common feature that drives life: hormones. They are messenger substances, acting as triggers in many of our body’s control centres. Together with genes, they determine looks, growth, procreation, emotions, health, nutrition, sleep and love. Theirs is a complex world, with complicated chain reactions and interconnections. Hormones are like a network, they are all interconnected.

Their tasks are both perplexing and exciting, for example the release of adrenaline prior to appearing on stage, the love hormone oxytocin released when people embrace each other for longer than 30 seconds or the sudden tinnitus triggered by a lack of oestriol, to name but a few. The mother of all hormones is known as pregnenolone, from which a wide range of hormones is produced, including progesterone.

What is a bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT) has been known about since the 1970s and was developed by Dr Jonathan Wright. Each hormone has its own unique chemical structure, a code that works like the lock-and-key principle. This chemical structure can be copied. The plant hormone dioxin is extracted and micronized from yam roots. Through the addition of individual carbons, the chemical structure of various human hormones can be imitated. The plant-based chemical structure thus becomes identical to that of our human hormones, i.e. bioidentical. This makes it possible to add missing hormones naturally and without side effects. Natural progesterone, for example, is essential for pregnancy to occur. Not only, because it maintains the pregnancy, but because the sperms can “smell” progesterone and thus get to the ovum faster in order to fertilize it.

“Progesterone makes women and men more attractive and increases sperm mobility.”

What can be treated with a bioidentical hormone therapy?

This list is not exhaustive

  • Burn-out
  • Behҫet’s disease
  • Breast cysts
  • Myoma
  • Depression
  • Neurodermatitis
  • Endometriosis
  • Oedema
  • Memory problems
  • PCO syndrome (polycystic syndrome)
  • Joint pain
  • PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
  • Hair loss

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hashimoto thyroiditis
  • Postnatal depression
  • Hot flushes
  • Insomnia
  • Fertility problems
  • Irritability

  • Migraine
  • Tinnitus

The key insight: A well functioning hormonal balance is the basic requisite for life-long health. A drop in hormone levels is noticeable from as early as 27 years, not, as previously thought, only during meno- or andropause.

Comparison of artificial and bioidentical hormones

The notion of “hormone therapy” is often met with spontaneous rejection. But is there a difference between hormone therapies? What hormones are being used? What are they made from and what is their effect on the human body? Here we explain the differences:

There is the regular hormone therapy, also known as hormone replacement therapy; it is a therapy with synthetic, i.e. artificially produced hormones. The best known synthetic hormones are used in hormonal contraceptives such as the pill, the hormonal coil, the birth control shot (three-monthly injection), the vaginal ring or the hormonal implant as well as in the treatment of complaints associated with the menopause. Their chemical structure is not the same as that of human hormones and has no ability to develop, thus severely limiting its many functions.

This kind of therapy is only used in the treatment of acute symptoms, for example in cases of severe menstrual problems, and these hormones harmless to health when taken over extended periods, as various side effects [1] may develop, such as loss of libido, hair loss, depression, lack of energy, insomnia, cysts, myomas, fertility problems, thrombosis or cancer associated with hormonal contraception. They also promote the aging process.

Bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy is a gentle treatment that addresses the causes of a diseases, replaces the deficient hormones, thus contributing significantly towards the abatement and healing of the disease. These hormones are produced from yam roots and are identical in structure to human hormones, hence the term “bioidentical”. Their effect is based on the lock-and-key principle, they can transform into other hormones and are free from side effects, when used properly.

Anti-aging or pro-aging?

Bioidentical hormones have an anti-aging effect. Depending on the hormone, the anti-aging effect acts on skin, bones, muscles, joints, soft tissue, hairs and more. After one year of consistent treatment with bioidentical hormones, the rejuvenating effect is already obvious.

Is a hormone treatment dangerous?

Two studies [2] compared bioidentical hormones with synthetic ones. Bioidentical hormones did not promote mammary cell growth. Synthetic hormones, by contrast, increased mammary cell growth, resulting in denser breast tissue in breast screening, a known risk factor for the development of breast cancer.

Preventive treatment

Besides treatment of symptoms and anti-aging, preventive treatment with bioidentical hormones is an important factor for a very good quality of life into old age. Numerous studies have proven that diseases such as Alzheimer’s [3], cataracts [4] and breast cancer [5] or the development of health problems such as migraine, menstrual problems or insomnia as well as premature birth [6] are associated with several low to very low hormone levels. This can also be observed in daily medical practice. A well adjusted treatment with bioidentical hormones can prevent this and maintain functional capacity as well as quality of life at a high level into very old age.

How are hormones measured?

“Normal levels are standard, but not ideal,” Dr Farmini explains.

Hormonal balance can be assessed by testing saliva, blood or urine. Results from a saliva test are more significant than those from a blood test, as it measures active hormones not bound to proteins. In a blood test, only protein-bound, i.e. inactive hormones are measured. This can result in a distorted assessment, and a potentially necessary therapy may thus not happen. Urine tests primarily measure the metabolic products of hormones.

A distorted assessment can also happen (in saliva- as well as blood- and urine-based diagnostic tests), when therapists interpret normal ranges as ideal ranges. Hormone levels within the supposed normal range (laboratory reference range) does not mean that a patient’s hormones are at the ideal or optimal level.

“Not just the absolute values are important, but also the interrelationship between them,” Dr Farmini points out.

Blood hormone tests are generally paid for by statutory health insurers. The costs of saliva and urine tests, by contrast, are only assumed by private health insurers, depending on contract.

On request, we are happy to provide you with further information and a saliva test set and/or a referral for a blood test.

How are bioidentical hormones administered?

Bioidentical hormones can be prescribed in a range of different administration forms: creams, lipocaps (known as lozenges), capsules, pens, suppositories or vaginal pessaries.

Creams are convenient and easy to apply in daily use. The dosage is flexible and adaptable and thus the most popular option with patients.

Lozenges are oil-filled capsules, hence their name lipocaps (Greek lipos = fat). They are small tablets placed inside the cheek pouch. The hormones are thus rapidly absorbed through the mucous membranes. Thanks to their compact form, lozenges are particularly practical for those on the move.

Capsules are preferred in certain cases in order to achieve a specific effect in terms of concentration and stamina.

A pen is a concentrated hormone preparation. It is no larger than a writing pen and thus very convenient and easy to use on the move. Pens can be used in the genital area and in areas where the skin is comparatively thin.

Suppositories or pessaries are inserted into the vagina and absorbed through the vaginal skin. In that way, the bioidentical enter directly into the bloodstream without the risk of contamination through rubbing off (affecting family members, pets or other people), as in the case of cream, for example.

Each bioidentical hormone preparation is individually produced for our patients by our trusted pharmacy. We make sure that hormones are of the highest quality and are produced on a basis that is as natural and high-grade as possible, as quality plays a crucial role in therapeutic success.

    After doing the treatment with cream and DHEA capsules for 5 days, I noticed the first signs of improvement. I did not have to break at noon anymore and the feeling of fatigue was gone. Now 2 months have passed and my menstrual cramps are no longer worth talking about. I am so excited and hope that my condition will continue to improve :)

    On 07/06/2015, my PATH led me to the WONDERFUL physician Dr Farmini. My symptoms: Thyroid hypofunction and tablet addiction (Thyrex100). MY GOAL WAS: To get rid of my tablet addiction and to stabilise my hormone balance. Before starting my hormone therapy with Dr Farmini, I stopped independently taking my Thyrex100 tablets and started hormone therapy at Dr Farmini’s practice on 22/06/2015. The first 3 months were hell for me. My hormone balance was completely out of sync. On 28/09/2015, at the follow-up appointment with Dr Farmini it turned out that my hormone cream was too concentrated (5%) progesterone -> We switched to 0.5% progesterone. And I started feeling better, albeit in small steps. Since the follow-up appointment on 28/09/2015, my menstrual cycle is in balance.{...} A dream came true. At this point, my sincere heartfelt thanks goes to the wonderful doctor and human being, Dr Farmini, who miraculously guided me through this hormone therapy and is still leading it. He is a sensitive doctor and I always feel that human beings are important to him. {...} many thanks again {...}

    Years of pill user, smoker, family and professional stress - my physical complaints: Skin problems, pale complexion, thin straw-like hair, digestive problems, infection susceptibility, etc. Unfortunately, these symptoms were then aggravated by sleep disorders, extreme restlessness and emotional roller coaster. I deliberately waited a year for my review, since initially, of course, hope and confidence have a positive effect on the overall condition. Now, after one year, I believe I can leave a necessary and honest assessment. In any case, I can say ... the natural physical/mental balance (with its ups and downs) has returned; a condition that I lost years ago, piece by piece. In my opinion, this is the biggest treatment success. The treatment is naturally supported by the honest and comprehensible advice. I am glad that there are physicians like this, and I really hope that Dr Farmini can continue to keep his joy and the sense of responsibility in working with people. Christiane B.

    For almost one year, I have been in treatment with Dr Farmini. I learned about him by chance; I had been looking for a long time for a competent gynaecologist, who sees the body holistically. After (only) 3 years of pill abuse I had to deal with many problems. Recommended by the former gynaecologist as a pill with ‘natural’ hormones and ‘not at all harmful’, I now know that all pills or hormonal contraceptives are the same POISON for the body. Many problems resolved by themselves after stopping the pill and hormone treatment: The skin gets better, the hair gets fuller and healthier and grows again, abdominal pain and headaches have improved, and especially the thyroid function and my autoimmune disease have greatly improved. The hormones affect the entire system. Of course you have to be patient and not expect immediate improvement after stopping the pill. The practice is very nice and Dr Farmini is one of the best doctors I have encountered so far. Also the continued service with him after an appointment, where he answers questions via email, is simply magnificent!

    I went to see Dr Farmini, because I had many complaints for a long time. Although his practice is almost fully booked, I still got a quick appointment, which I found very nice of the sympathetic assistant, because I was in really bad shape. Dr Farmini has taken a lot of time for me and I finally feel like a person and a true woman again. After a thorough examination, as I expect from a good physician, we selected the right form of therapy for me together. After only a short time, I found myself again because I'm as good as free of symptoms! I will certainly continue the therapy, because my condition has already improved so much, which I had not even thought would be possible. Dr Farmini ingeniously combines conventional medicine with alternative medicine and can therefore give you complete, all-encompassing advice. His practice is exceptional in every way and makes you feel good. A doctor that exceeds expectations.

    By recommendation of a friend, I went to the practice of Dr Farmini. Before my visit, I had already informed myself about bioidentical hormone therapy. I am certainly not a patient that, as a physician, you wish to see everyday - I am critical and may ask inconvenient questions. Dr Farmini patiently answered everything and kept me informed. After three months of treatment, using the emulsion 1 to 2 times a day, I can say without exaggeration, I feel balanced, quasi stress-resistant; the general dryness of the skin has improved and according to positive feedback in the circle of friends, I simply look younger. The care by the ladies in the lobby, in my case mainly by phone or by email, is absolutely friendly and informative. The tasteful décor of the practice is a pleasant bonus. All in all, I can say, it was the best decision in a long time to start this therapy with Dr Farmini. Thank you very much

    On 02/10/2016, I was in the office of Dr Farmini and had a conversation about my hormone status. Two weeks ago I had to do a saliva test, which was evaluated by a laboratory. The reason why I had an appointment with Dr Farmini, were menopause symptoms (2 months fiercely). Mr Farmini explained my lab values to me (catastrophical) and gave me a hormone cream tailored to my needs. What a miracle: after about 2 weeks no more complaints, every woman who has experienced night-time sweating knows what I'm talking about. I’m also thrilled by the kindness and professional qualities of Dr Farmini; yours sincerely, Christine Fasching

    After years of hot flashes (and in the end every hour at night, too) and the knowledge that artificial hormones are absolutely dangerous, I was desperate. A colleague referred me to Dr Farmini. The result: After 3 months of applying the bioidentical hormone ointment, the hot flashes have de facto ceased to exist. I also recommend the book ‘Bioidente Hormone’ [bioidentical hormones].

    On July 7, I had an appointment with Dr Farmini. I suffered from hot flashes, headache, exhaustion, sleep disorder, dried out mucous membranes. I was in really bad shape. After three months of taking cortisol and the ointment that I have used twice a day, I feel really good today. I do not sweat anymore; I hardly have any headaches anymore; I sleep better and I have enormous energy. The only problem I still have are my dry mucous membranes. I hope it gets better soon. I am overjoyed that I have chosen this great physician: Dr Farmini. Thank you!

    I was in the practice of Dr Farmini 4 weeks ago, and I have to say that my decision to go there was totally confirmed from the first minute. Dr Farmini is a really great doctor who takes a lot of time and really understands his area of expertise. I found him because I was looking for bioidentical hormone therapy, and it was absolutely the right decision to go to him. I left a long ordeal behind me and I was in really bad shape for more than 2 years. Because of my thyroid disease, Hashimoto, and a catastrophic hormone deficiency, I decided to use hormone therapy. And I have to say, I'm excited and overjoyed!!! I've been taking the cream for 4 weeks now and it's looking better week by week. Already, I am noticing significant improvements in various areas and I am technically only at the beginning of the therapy! Thanks to Mr Farmini and his great team for the kind care and everything around it. I really recommend him and his therapy to everyone!

    I learned from an acquaintance about Dr Farmini and the treatment with bioidentical hormones. After studying the book, ‘The Hormone ”Revolution’, I booked an appointment with Dr Farmini. I am 60+ and had various complaints. At the end of July, I first started with the hormone cream and soon found that I was energetic and had more stamina. I almost didn’t recognise myself. Now, after 8 months of using the hormone cream, I can still say that even 30 years ago I did not feel as great as I do now. In the past, I often suffered from depression, moodiness, lack of motivation. That’s a thing in the past now. I highly recommend the practice. I feel like I am in very good hands.

    At age 52, I underwent total thyroid surgery. Since that time (5 years), I have been dealing with extreme hot flashes, often every half an hour, day and night with all unpleasant side effects (rapid heartbeat, extreme hot/cold feeling, sleep disorder, dizziness, very low-spirited and often depressed). This time has drained me of a lot of energy and I was totally exhausted and wasted. In short, my love of life was lost. A young female relative, who was experiencing exactly the same symptoms, recommended Dr Farmini, who uses saliva tests to determine the values and to put together a bioidentical hormone cream. And I am excited !! Everything happened exactly as Dr Farmini described it. After 3 months, I already felt a noticeable improvement and today, after 6 months, the unpleasant side effects are almost gone. I often sweat out of the blue, but not with the unpleasant signs. I am very grateful that Dr Farmini has helped me restore my love of life. He is a very special doctor, whom I highly recommend - thank you!

I suffered from constant headache or migraine with an average of about 4 - 6 headaches a week, in addition restless sleep, exhaustion… I found Dr Farmini by word of mouth.

    Since I was 14 years old, I had extreme, unbearable menstrual pain and very heavy bleeding. The gynaecologists prescribed the pill for me, which made me depressed, constantly tired, irritable, and the menstrual pain did not get better, etc. In September 2016, I began with hormone therapy (my hormone status was catastrophic) and after six months, the pain disappeared completely. Also, the bleeding is now very light. I would like to thank Dr Farmini for my new and improved quality of life! You are a really great doctor! Thank you!

    My menopausal symptoms have increased extremely (migraine, insomnia, scalp itching, hair loss, bad mood, weakness, diminished memory, etc.) The findings of the saliva test confirmed my condition. The therapy with the bioidentical hormone cream, whose ingredients Dr Farmini prepares individually for every single woman, is really like a miracle. After about 3 days, I already noticed a change in my quality of life. After reaching the ‘standard values’, it is important to continue the maintenance therapy and not spontaneously drop everything (which I unfortunately did). Many thanks to Dr Farmini for the great and empathic care!

    Dr Farmini was recommended to me by a friend because I was looking for an alternative to surgery for my cysts. I had never heard of bioidentical hormone therapy before and became curious. I was able to get an appointment pretty quickly; the practice is totally beautiful and stylish and I was received very friendly by Mrs Farmini. Dr Farmini has taken a lot of time for me; I've never been to a doctor for a whole hour! But the best part is that, thanks to the hormone test, I finally understood why I had these problems for years and I can explain my hair loss, the cysts and my depression. I've been taking the natural hormone cream for three months now and I have to say, I haven’t felt this well for a long time: Cysts are gone, hair loss is history and I'm up and running again! I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Farmini for his therapy and also that he spared no effort to answer all my questions by email ... even on weekends! I already recommended him to my husband because he suffers from burn out.

    I was undergoing treatment with another gynaecologist for many years and received treatment with artificial hormones for early menopause (at the age of 38). When the dosage was increased, my stomach felt like it was bloated, my mood and libido were down, until I came across Dr Farmini. After taking bioidentical hormones for 4 months, I feel better than I have in years. I completely forgot how agile I was once. My family also enjoys seeing me back in shape as I used to be. I don’t lose my hair any more, and as I said, I'm more active, and in a better mood. Many thanks to Dr Farmini and his wife; thanks for helping me feel well again!!

    I was one of the first patients to be seen by Dr Farmini in 2013 (he took over the practice of my then gynaecologist) ... I was overwhelmed by the lady who greeted me there - Isabelle - a nice conversation, a little coffee and I was ready to be seen by Dr Farmini. I had a pretty bad low-energy problem: I could hardly get up in the morning, was overwhelmed and in a really bad mood. It was followed by a detailed examination and the very time-consuming examination of the chest by palpation and ultrasound he spared me from having a mammography, which made me so happy because I want to avoid X-rays. Now we could tackle my energy problem. He took his time to explain the connections to me and I was amazed at how honest, attentive, caring and understanding he was the entire time. ‘He knows a lot, but does not keep it to himself, instead he shares it with you,’ that’s how I felt. He's just one step ahead of everyone in terms of hormone therapy and humanity. Since I’ve been undergoing bioidentical hormone therapy, I feel pretty good again and I'm really grateful for the help.

    My natural hormone balance was pretty much out of wack due to many years of artificial contraception. I already had health problems (insomnia, chest pain). Fortunately, Dr Farmini was great help for my dilemma! He explained the cause and effect of my complaints to me with his excellent competence. Thus, many things became clear to me and I quickly gained confidence in him. He lifted me up from where I was, and that was a great feeling of relief! When I heard about the bioidentical hormones, and Dr Farmini explained them well, I knew that I was at the perfectly right place! I have been taking them for 4 months and am overwhelmed by how well they work… A big compliment to Dr Farmini - a doctor, who’s extremely competent and very, very humane! A great waiting room, like a café in Italy - almost, as on vacation ... Mrs Farmini, a very dear person, who contributes to make you feel very comfortable. You could almost forget that you’re a patient when entering the practice; Thank you!

    I highly recommend Dr Farmini for many reasons. Competence, empathy, time for his patients, pleasant atmosphere... I am from Innsbruck and started menopause at the age of 34 due to a botched surgery. After two years of taking hormones with all the side effects, I refused any further medication. The osteoporosis measurement at 50 years of age turned out very bad. For years, I have been searching in vain for a gynaecologist in Innsbruck who views my problem as a whole and helps me with natural methods. I had given up the search until my friend from Salzburg recommended Dr Farmini. I decided to do the drive and soon started treatment. I received a customised bioidentical hormone cream for me. The effect is tremendous and I got my life back !!!! My energy has increased so much (I haven’t been used to it for 15 years!) and my mucous membranes are not dry any more. I feel no side effects, such as cravings attacks. I'm glad to finally be well looked after medically. Thanks also for the friendly care by Mrs. Farmini in the lobby. Ulrike

    My concern was clarification of my hormonal balance. With an explanatory conversation, so that I could learn about it, we decided to do a saliva test. Through the conversation I also learned what it is about, how the hormones are related, and we put together a customised treatment for me. What really appeals to me are the holistic ideas of Mrs Isabell and Dr Armando Farmini. I already have, and will continue to recommend the practice. Also advisable for young girls, because they treat femininity very sensitively.

Dr. Farmini recently handled the insertion of my copper IUD. After his lovely wife Isabell gave me some homeopathic drops to calm my nerves, Dr. Farmini answered all of my questions and put me completely at ease about the minor procedure. The insertion of the IUD was expertly done and painless! After 3 months I have had no problems with the IUD and I feel happier, have more energy, and look better now that my hormones are in better balance. It is with pleasure that I highly recommend Dr. Armando Farmini.

Doctor Farmini is very empathetic, competent and gives you the feeling that you are being taken seriously with your problems. He takes a lot of time and asks again and again, if you have any questions. I have had ‘menopause problems’ for 7 years and nobody could help me. The ointment with the bioidentical hormones was my salvation; after only 2 weeks my problems were history.

    After a long search for an experienced doctor with bioidentical hormone therapy I fortunately came across Dr Farmini! Unfortunately, many gynaecologists do not deal with this extremely effective and side effect-free hormone therapy. I've read a lot of books about it before and just wanted to be treated with it. I drive 200 km (each way) but I am well worth it and I have been feeling very well for a year and a half with this hormone therapy! There are some very good books about it to inform you beforehand. It was important to me to take bioidentical hormones, because I live a very healthy lifestyle and want to keep it that way, and it seems to work really well! P.S. Also the very tasteful and lovingly decorated waiting room by Mrs Farmini invites you to feel good. The time that Dr Farmini takes is also very important to me and he is very competent and sensitive… Nice that I found Dr Farmini for my future care!

    On 13/08/2015, I was in the practice of Dr Farmini for the first time, since then 3 months have passed and I can only report the very best about Dr Farmini. A few days later I started with the hormone cream; after 2 weeks I noticed the first changes in my body. Now, after 3 months, I lost 11.5 kg! I'm doing well, I have no more pain in my joints (arthrosis in my hands and feet). Also, Mrs Farmini is a very dear and warmhearted woman; I talked to her a few times during that time and she gave me some good advice. I find the practice decoration attractive, cosy like a living room at home, awesome. I will gladly recommend Dr Farmini to anyone.

    Through a conversation, I became aware of Dr Farmini by chance and actually received the help that I was desperately looking for. His alternative approach and dealing with my complaints is exactly the way that I always looked for as a woman and approve. I really like the overall concept of this practice and cooperation with the pharmacy; I feel taken seriously and looked after appropriately.

    I came here because of my hot flashes, lack of energy, tinnitus, dry mucous membranes, joint pain, fatigue, hair loss and skin problems. After about 3 months of applying the hormone cream, I had noticeably more energy, was able to sleep through the night, the hot flashes became rare and are barely noticeable today. Joint pain has almost disappeared, hair and skin have changed visibly. I feel much better since the treatment.
