As we age, the hormone production in our bodies naturally decreases. We find it harder to lose weight, women go through menopause, and overall, most people experience a drastic dip as they get older. It’s nothing to be overly concerned about, but it also isn’t a very pleasant experience. The symptoms are different for men and women. If you are suffering from a hormone imbalance, we invite you to learn about bio-identical hormone pellets.
Bio-identical hormone therapy is a treatment that is designed to bring your hormones back to a normal range. It isn’t designed to restore you to your youthful vitality, but it is designed to bring some stability back to your life. For women, this can come in the form of less hot flashes, improved concentration, and more energy. Men tend to benefit in the form of weight loss, mental clarity, and increased strength. The benefits you receive from bio-identical hormone pellets is up to how your body responds to them, as well as how your hormone imbalance manifests itself.
If you have heard of hormone replacement therapy, you may know that there are different forms of this treatment. Pellets are probably the best option for this treatment because they gradually release hormones into your body at a steady rate. Injections and oral medications can have negative side effects because they can cause a hormone fluctuation.
With pellets, you simply visit our office, have the pellet inserted, and then you’re good to go until the next treatment. The pellets take care of the rest. With injections, you have to schedule regular appointments, and if you forget, you could suffer. Oral medication is the same way. If you don’t remember to take your pill at a specific time each day, your body could start experiencing hormone imbalance symptoms again. Pellets are much more reliable than other forms of hormone replacement therapy.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Basically, anyone with a hormone imbalance could be a good candidate for bio-identical hormone pellets. Of course, many symptoms of a hormone imbalance could be due to a different underlying cause, which is why testing is necessary before treatment. If you are experiencing fatigue, brain fog, and depression, a hormone imbalance could be the cause, but it’s always best to be sure.
