Menopause is the time when a woman stops having periods and can no longer get pregnant. Perimenopause happens before this, as your body is making the transition to menopause, and your periods may become irregular. Although this is a natural progression, many women experience unpleasant symptoms during these times, due to hormonal fluctuations and declines.
Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the front of your neck. It produces two hormones that are used by cells throughout your body. When it doesn’t produce enough, you have a condition called hypothyroidism and many of your bodily functions can slow down.
Hashimoto’s syndrome is a condition in which your own immune system attacks your thyroid gland, the small butterfly-shaped gland at the front of your neck. It damages the thyroid and over time, causes hypothyroidism and a deficiency of thyroid hormones in your body.
Andropause is sometimes called male menopause. Like women, men experience changes in their male hormone levels, primarily testosterone, as they age. This period is not as well defined in men as in women and occurs more gradually. However, it can still give you symptoms like fatigue, poor concentration, and sexual problems.
Sexual dysfunction is any problem that prevents a couple from enjoying sex. The most common types of male sexual dysfunction are ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction, and lack of sexual desire. These can be the result of physical or psychological problems.
Autism is now known to be not a single disorder, but a spectrum of closely related disorders. ASD begins in childhood and lasts throughout life. Symptoms and severity vary widely, but generally include issues with social interaction, empathy, communication, obsessive interests, and repetitive behaviors.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can happen if you experience or witness a terrifying event and have trouble recovering. These events can include natural disasters, serious accidents, terrorist acts, war/combat, rape, or violent assault. People with PTSD have intense thoughts and feelings about these events for months or even years that cause trouble functioning normally.
Autoimmune disease occurs when your immune system targets healthy cells in your own body. The immune system is designed to protect you against intruders like viruses but sometimes mistakes friend for foe. Some autoimmune diseases have localized effects on one body system or organ, while others cause widespread problems. Examples include rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, and lupus.

Compounded vs. Standard Treatment Options
When your doctor writes a standard prescription, you likely have it filled at a commercial pharmacy for a premade tablet, capsule, cream, or liquid. Those medications follow a set formula and can’t be adjusted.
Compound prescriptions, on the other hand, offer customization, and specifies unique dosage strength, delivery method and even flavoring agents. It can also list things to leave out, like allergens that may make you sick. Most of the conditions helped by Belmar’s compounded medications involve hormone deficiencies, chronic conditions, or wellness and vitality issues.
