Why Choose Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-Identical Hormones are chemically identical to the hormones the body produces naturally. These hormones come from plant estrogens, unlike traditional hormone replacement which uses the urine from pregnant horses and synthetic compounds.
How Hormone Optimization Can Help
Hormone Replacement Therapy can offer relief from many common ailments including fatigue, stress, brain fog, sleep disruption, and weight gain. These are often symptoms of hormone imbalance that Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can help to correct. Above all, Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve the quality of life for women who are suffering from debilitating symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to balance hormones that have dropped, usually due to age. This is particularly true of women who are experiencing menopause or perimenopause, for which HRT is very helpful. Menopause can interfere with a woman’s quality of life, causing sleep issues and relationship issues due to mood swings and irritability.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve menopause symptoms, including:
- Hot flashes
- Memory loss
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Sleep disturbance
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
In addition to the above benefits, Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to increase energy, improve visible signs of aging, and improve muscle function.
Why Pellet Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy using the pellet method is a very natural way to adjust hormone levels. Because they are implanted beneath the skin, the hormones are directly released into the bloodstream slowly over a period of three to six months. The pellet releases small doses, similar to the way the body releases natural hormones. Because the hormones are absorbed instead of swallowed, they bypass the liver and digestive system and can be utilized more efficiently.
In addition to the physical benefits, pellet therapy has the added benefit of being very convenient, without the need for ongoing shots or daily creams and it has a high safety record.
How are Hormone Pellets Inserted?
To implant Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets, the surgeon uses a small incision, typically just above the hip, using local anesthesia. The pellets are no larger than a grain of rice. In some cases, some mild swelling occurs but this usually subsides within 24 hours. Many patients experience the benefits of BHRT within four weeks but full optimization occurs after six months.
