Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a fantastic way to treat a number of hormone-related conditions, as well as minimize or eliminate the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and andropause. BHRT supplements the body with hormones in which it has become deficient in order to bring your endocrine system back into a state of balance.
If you’re already familiar with bioidentical hormones, you know that many medical practitioners like the ones at Men and Women’s Vitality Center and patients prefer them over the synthetic hormones used in regular, non-identical hormone replacement therapy. This is because bioidentical hormones contain the exact chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally produced by the human body, and because they are derived from natural plant sources such as soy and yams.
Now that the word is out, BHRT is receiving high praise from those who try it. But, BHRT is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There are several factors to consider before you start on a BHRT protocol. One of the most important is the form of treatment through which you receive BHRT.
Pellets vs. Other Forms Of BHRT
Bioidentical hormones are available in many forms, including pills, patches, creams, injections, subdermal pellets and suppositories. Of all of these forms, subdermal pellets have perhaps gained the most attention. Let’s explore why that is the case.
Most forms of BHRT rely on providing the body with supplemental bioidentical hormones on a regular basis. This may mean coming into the office for a shot every few weeks or rubbing cream on your skin several times a day. While these are all effective means of receiving BHRT, for some patients the sudden influx of hormones at particular times causes disruptive side effects. So, how are pellets different?
Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is a sustainable long-term way to receive bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormone pellets are tiny pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, that are injected just beneath the skin into the hip or buttock. Most patients say this experience is painless and even easier than having your blood drawn.
Over 3–6 months, the pellet slowly dissolves, secreting hormones into your body in a slow, gradual way. This prevents the shock that some patients experience from suddenly receiving an influx of hormones. Once the pellets have dissolved there is no residue or marks left on the skin.
Hormones Available with BHRT Pellets
Bioidentical hormone pellets are available for both men and women, and the hormones that may be received from this method include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This makes them a viable treatment option for menopause, perimenopause, andropause and more.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Pellets
There are numerous benefits to using BHRT pellets. As we’ve mentioned above, bioidentical hormones are a natural alternative to synthetic hormones, and bioidentical hormone pellets are able to provide your body with supplemental hormones regularly and evenly.
Because a bioidentical hormone pellet lasts several months, most of the time you’ll probably forget about it completely. It is painless and doesn’t require you to use creams or patches or pills throughout the day.
Once your hormone levels have been balanced with the gradual release of these little pellets, some of the additional benefits you’ll enjoy may include improved focus and memory, weight loss, better moods, enhanced vitality and better bone, brain and heart health.
