Hormone Replacement Therapy – Feel Balanced Again
Hormone imbalance can create a whole array of unpleasant symptoms for women as well as men. These symptoms include mood swings, weight gain, exhaustion, depression and hair loss, to mention a few.
Although the main culprit of hormone imbalance is the natural aging process, nutrition and lifestyle habits also contribute to the lack of production of hormones in the body.
Fortunately, there is a way to balance your hormones to more normal levels. It’s called Pellet Therapy.
What Is Pellet Therapy
Pellet therapy is a highly effective form of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapies, this treatment method is based on prescribing a customized dose of hormones for each patient, administered through the most effective hormone delivery system. The pellet dosage management system takes into account the patients physical and emotional manifestations, as well as, lab evaluation; which are then entered into a formula that effectively calculates the exact needed dosage for your body.
Pellet therapy is the most effective hormone delivery system… which deliver the hormones directly into your bloodstream.
Are Bioidentical Hormones Safe?
Bioidentical hormones have been available since 1935 and their effectiveness to treat a variety of hormonal disorders have been documented for decades. Numerous studies indicated that women with menopausal symptoms — including surgically induced medical menopause — should consider hormone replacement.
Bioidentical hormones are plant-based compounds. They are referred to as bioidentical because their molecular structure mimic the hormones that are naturally produced in your body.
Although the pellet method is the most effective way to administer bioidentical hormones, other delivery methods exist, including:
- sublingual drops or pills (under the tongue)
- creams (rub into skin like a lotion)
- injection (shot form)
At SKINovative, the pellet therapy is used exclusively because it is less likely to cause the “roller coaster” effect brought on by other hormone delivery methods.
The Ideal Hormone Delivery System
Getting the right amount of hormones to the body, exactly when the body requires them is complex. Creams, pills and patches are unable to deliver consistent amounts of hormones throughout the day mimicking how the body naturally delivers hormones.
Each pellet is produced at a compounding pharmacy and is customized to meet your needs. The pellet is designed to release hormones slowly and throughout the day. Each pellet is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and is inserted under the skin. For women pellet placement is usually once every 3 to 4 months and for men every 6 months.
When pellets are used in patients, the pellet is inserted into the fatty tissue, which allows the hormones to be introduced directly into the bloodstream, without having to go through the skin or digestive system. Because your body’s circulation regulates how the pellet dissolves, the dose will be constant and will be available as you need it.
