Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps thousands of women each day keep their menopausal symptoms in check. One of the most effective ways to deliver the hormones is through a pellet. Below is more information on why using pellet therapy in conjunction with hormone replacement therapy has so many advantages.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are usually made from plants. They are biologically identical to the hormones already present in the human body. With synthetic hormones, we are putting foreign objects in the body. They don’t react the same way as the real thing. Only bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is proven safe and reliable.
About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy is typically used by people who want to control the symptoms of menopause. The therapy can reduce or get rid of symptoms such as mood swings, night sweats, change in eating habits, and weight gain.
Hormone replacement therapy for men exists too. A special testosterone treatment is available for men who feel they are losing muscle mass or experiencing other symptoms of andropause.
What Are Pellets?
Pellets are surgical implants that are about the size of a mint. They are placed under the skin and periodically release the hormone into the body. This has a few advantages. You’ll never miss a dose, you’ll always get the right amount, and you won’t have to make a trip to the doctor quite so often.
Pellets can keep delivering the hormone up to six months, so you’ll still have to make regular visits to the doctor to have them replaced.
The pellets we use are all made up with bioidentical hormones. Pellets are the safer, more effective, and more convenient answer to synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Anyone who has an irregular hormone balance should consider hormone replacement therapy. The ideal candidates are women who are about to start menopause. Beginning the treatment early is paramount to stopping symptoms from appearing in the first place.
The results will be seen right away. Menopausal symptoms will begin to disappear, patients will be more active and alert, and they will generally have a great ability to perform physically.
