Benefits Of Having An On-Site Compounding Lab

compounding lab

Hormone therapy compounding labs have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the days of the mortar and pestle. Today, state-of-the-art equipment helps our compounders make the individual prescriptions needed for patients’ hormone therapy. The practice of compounding has made hormone therapy available to a much larger portion of the population that are looking for alternatives to synthetic hormone therapies or have health requirements that prevent them from other forms of hormone therapy. 

The Happy Hormone Cottage and Integrative Hormone Center work closely together to offer their patients an unparalleled experience. By having an onsite compounding lab, your entire journey begins and ends with us. You don’t need to send any documents, transfer any files or drive to some other far away pharmacy. We do everything for you, right here!

What Can Compounding Labs Do?

Compounding labs have the potential to adapt and adjust medications based on personal health preferences and requirements. Some of the other useful applications are as follows: 

  • For those with an allergy, unable to take mass-produced medication 
  • To change the delivery system of a medication; 
    • Incorporating medication into lollipop form for easier ingestion 
  • Make medication taste better for children
  • To make medication easier to give to pets

HHC & IHC: An Industry-Leading Compounding Lab

Here at the Happy Hormone Cottage, we have always recognized the incredible value attributed to having our own compounding pharmacy. We were the first compounding lab to incorporate the resodyne mixer used in large-scale industry, by bringing it to the compounding world. Today other compounding pharmacies around the country have followed our lead.

We are proud to be named in Suzanne Somer’s book “The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones” as the benchmark for what a premium compounding lab should be. Our goal is to develop medication and therapy that uniquely benefits each individual patient, based on their medical history and personal health requirements. 

When referring to compounding labs, there are two types – sterile and non-sterile. Sterile labs create injectables (shots) and IV solutions. Our lab is considered non-sterile, which does not mean “unclean.” It means that we create powders, creams, capsules, troches, lollipops –  nothing injected into the body.

Benefits of anOn-site Compounding Lab

Our state-of-the-art compounding lab constantly raises the bar for our industry, offering bespoke therapy for the individual, and we are one of very few clinics that compound medication on-site. This was a carefully calculated decision and it brings a range of benefits with it, that extends to our patients as well

Reduces Costs 

By offering our services onsite, we eliminate the need for an intermediary or external provider. This means that we are able to offer our patients a lower cost for medications and therapies. 

Comprehensive Treatment

Having a compounding lab onsite means that we remain your main point of contact throughout the entirety of your therapy journey. There is no need to send you elsewhere to collect medication, we have everything you need right here! 

Quality Control & Reliability

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of having an onsite compounding lab is our ability to have complete oversight over the compounding process. Having immediate access to our own compounding lab allows us to ensure superior quality and highly reliable results. Having our facilities onsite also streamlines the process for our team, and for our patients as well.
