The human body has more than a trillion cells that depend on a balance of hormones to help conduct a multitude of functions. Hormones function as chemical messengers in the body. These messengers are sensitive, and when they become impaired, cellular function crashes. In response, your body’s systems no longer perform as they should. Many of the symptoms linked to hormone imbalance are due to troubles at the cellular level.
Symptoms of these imbalances include but are not limited to; the control of your sleep/wake cycle, management of moods, and even adjustment of your body temperature. Complications can occur even if one hormone falls out of balance. The entire system can crumble, causing you to experience distressing symptoms of aging. Factors include weight gain, low libido, hair loss, fatigue, and lack of energy. It does not have to be this way.
Unnatural hormone levels can be caused by a multitude of factors. Some of the decisive players in this game are the aging process, toxin exposures, or a health illness. BHRT is a functional solution for replacing hormones that the body is not able to generate on its own.
Some other bioidentical hormone methods like applicable gels, creams, or pills, can provide some temporary relief to symptoms. However, they cannot compare to the effectiveness of hormone pellet therapy for management of menopause and andropause symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance. While there are a lot of complexities in managing hormone therapy, Dr. Kissel is well-versed in the process of pellet therapy, as it is the cornerstone of her practice.
The most beneficial way to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is by means of pellet therapy. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy involves the insertion of natural hormone pellets into soft fatty tissues under the skin through an un-intrusive, concise in-office procedure. Since 1938, testosterone pellets have been used as a convenient, and consistent form of bioidentical hormone replacement. Pellets in women typically last 3-4 months, and 4-5 months in men. The inserted pellets are around the size of a grain of rice and are made with bioidentical testosterone and/or estrogen, and a natural cholesterol binder. It is typical to insert pellets just under the beltline in the upper buttocks. Pellets are made with a specific density & firmness, so they can have a gradual decomposition period. As the pellets dissolve, hormones are absorbed into the system via a steady stream. This way, the pellet’s dissolution imitates the body’s exact processes of the release of hormones.
Peak hormone levels can help:
Women who have or are experiencing perimenopause, menopause or post-menopause often experience a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. This, coupled with hormone imbalance can put quite a strain on your body. Throughout these difficult transitions, levels can vary. This may result in high testosterone in women (as well as low testosterone in women!), progesterone deficits, or estrogen dominance. It is important to know that thyroid symptoms can manifest with ease during these years as well (See our page on these issues Here). Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be the catalyst that’s needed to reattain a natural hormone balance. Women who decide to undergo BHRT can expect some notable and welcomed benefits such as:
Regarding conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), one might be pessimistic after hearing the horror stories of those who have been treated with unnatural hormone substitutes. These hormones gained popularity, then were scrutinized after people began to realize the effect they were having on patients. Conventional hormone replacement therapy is founded on the practice of using synthetic hormones. Mock hormones are manufactured en masse with chemical components being the primary ingredient. These hormones are patented, meaning that treatment is uniform for all patients and products are not modified to meet their biometric needs. Adverse side effects of synthetic hormones include an elevated risk of heart disease & breast cancer. Thankfully, a much safer choice exists.
On the other end of the scale is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT employs the use of bioidentical hormones. These natural hormones are derived from plant reserves and are designed to have identical molecular structure to the organic hormones produced by the body. This interchangeable structure ensures bioidentical hormones will attach to the body’s receptors, presenting the same practical sequence as indigenous hormones. This allows for remarkable treatment outcomes and the minimization of risky side effects.
With the support of BHRT from Restorative Wellness MD, you can receive a comprehensive assessment of your hormone levels using advanced testing techniques. Moreover, you receive a personalized treatment plan based on your lab values, symptoms, medical history, environmental factors, and how your life has changed since your symptoms started.
When patients select an organic hormone regimen (like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as opposed to a synthetic hormone replacement therapy), it endorses a more prosperous bodily experience. One without disagreeable reactions and only mild side effects. A few key rewards of using bioidentical hormones include:
A genuinely customized treatment plan is not just about figures on a page, nor is it just about your symptoms & comparing your health statistics to the national average.
