As we age, we start to lose some of the critical hormones that support full-body health. For example, men start to experience drops in testosterone while women start to lose estrogen. There are several therapies available to help revitalize your body, get to feeling your best, and help correct hormone imbalances. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is one of your options.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement is a popular and effective type of hormone replacement therapy. The term “bioidentical” simply means the hormones used are chemically identical to the ones your body produces. That’s why this therapy is also known as “natural hormone therapy” due to the hormones used.
How Does It Work?
At Balance Hormone Center, we use bioidentical hormone pellets during therapy. During your visit, our physician will insert the small pellet under your skin, most often in the skin of your buttocks. Once the pellet is implanted, it will deliver a steady stream of testosterone or estrogen into your bloodstream.W
e typically recommend our patients repeat the pellet treatment every three-to-six months. We’ll discuss your specific treatment needs during your first appointment.
Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
We find that most men experience a significant improvement in wellbeing quickly after therapy. Men typically report increased muscle mass, an increased interest in sex and memory improvements. It’s also possible to experience lower depression, a lower risk of heart attack and a decrease in andropause symptoms.
Women who undergo estrogen replacement often experience a decrease in fatigue, an increase in libido and even a decrease in menopause symptoms. For women, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy reduces the risk of osteoporosis, heart attack and diabetes.
Are the Pellets Safe?
The hormones are created through a process that pulls hormones from plant-based ingredients. These ingredients contain the same structure as testosterone and estrogen made by the body. Because they mirror the hormones found in your body, they’re more easily accepted. This decreases the potential for negative side effects and increases the effectiveness of the treatment, making them a safe option for most.
