Hormone Replacement Therapy is Changing Women’s Lives
Research indicates that, besides heart and artery protection, as well as protection against broken bones, estrogen protects against cognitive decline during aging and perhaps even against Alzheimer’s disease. The most common reason as to why women are at higher risk for developing osteoporosis or Alzheimer’s is their reduced estrogen production after menopause. It’s likewise important to note that, on the reverse side, epidemiological research has linked hormone replacement with a decline in the risk of developing these serious diseases.
If you were diagnosed with an iron deficiency, you would take supplements to correct the problem. In the same way, hormone replacement therapy replenishes a vital resource that your body needs to function at its best. While pills, patches or creams of synthetic hormones may be prescribed by your doctor, the hormones in these products are different from the ones produced by your body, and the delivery method results in wide fluctuations in hormone levels throughout the day.
With bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy, the hormones we use are biologically identical to the ones produced by the human body. Your body metabolizes them in exactly the same way, and pellet implant delivers the right amount into the bloodstream as you need it, around the clock.
Pellet therapy for hormone replacement has been around for over 70 years and is the safest, most effective form of hormone replacement therapy available. The pellets are compounded in custom dosages to meet each patient’s needs, and the tiny implants (about the size of a grain of rice) are inserted under the skin. A single quick insertion lasts for three to six months – so there are no daily pills to remember, and no messy creams or patches to apply!
The pellet delivery system allows for a consistent, gradual release of a physiologic dose of hormone, with no roller coaster effect. It’s what your body needs, in the right amount, exactly when you need it!
Our patients consistently tell us how much bioidentical hormone replacement has changed their lives, made them feel like themselves again and helped them get the most out of this stage of their lives.
