Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy
After age 30, most people produce 3%-10% less hormones each year.
If you or a loved one suffers from the symptoms of decreased hormones due to aging, menopause, or other medical conditions, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy might be able to help!
Men have their own version of “menopause” called andropause. This is the natural deficiency in testosterone while aging bringing a wide range of symptoms. Testosterone is an important hormone for a man as it is the primary male sex hormone, fuels libido, affects muscle mass and bone density, maintains fluid balance, regulates red blood cells, manages functions of the brain, and keeps you feeling young and vital. Testosterone begins to dip around the age of 30 and drops dramatically around 40-55.
Conventional male hormonal treatments are administered by injections or gels rubbed onto your body. These are commonly synthetic hormones and can have many side effects, sometimes creating as many symptoms as they relieve. Many men who are suffering from decreased testosterone may be trying drugs to regain their sex drive or clear up brain fog without even realizing that bio-identical hormone therapy is even an option!
Bio-identical hormones have been used safely since the 1930s without the negative side effects that synthetics have been known to produce. In fact, it is the only delivery method of testosterone therapy that can give sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day for four to six months without the “roller coaster” levels that result in mood and energy fluctuations.
As women age and lead into menopause, the ovaries produce fewer hormones causing a variety of changes in a woman’s body, some of which can be quite uncomfortable or keep you from doing the activities you love. Changing levels of estrogen and the ratio of estradiol to estrone going haywire can lead to risks of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, breast cancer, and other serious health issues. Research also indicates that estrogen also protects against cognitive decline during aging and, perhaps, against Alzheimer’s disease. Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy can help to regulate fluctuating hormone levels and dramatically decrease symptoms using natural female hormone replacement.
Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy has been approved and available in the U.S. since the 1930s. There has been general agreement in scientific literature that the use of bio-identical hormones is far better than using non-humane hormone therapy. While pills, patches, creams, and shots can be effective hormone replacement therapies, they cannot provide the steady delivery of hormones 24/7 that your body recognizes. Using low dose, slow release bio-identical pellets injected under the skin that consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones over three to five months, women using pellet therapy have reported less of a “roller coaster” effect often produced by oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy.
