Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone imbalances can affect the health and quality of life for adult and aging men and women. Testosterone, HGH, the Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid, DHEA, Estrogen and Progesterone all play important roles in your ability to function. Low or unbalanced hormone levels can cause loss of energy, loss of sleep, loss of muscle, weight gain, sexual dysfunction, loss of stamina, hot flashes, mood swings, depression, bone loss, memory loss and other symptoms. Anti-Aging Group hormone physicians use bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, which means “natural” hormone replacement therapy, to treat hormone-related health conditions these and other symptoms due to menopause and male menopause (andropause).
Bio-identical hormone therapy can be achieved with creams, gels, injections, patches and pellets. As one ages the hormones that should be examined are:
- Total Estrogens
- Total Progestins
- Total Thyroids,T3 & T4
Hormone Pellets have become very popular because they are inserted under the skin and can be effective from 4 to six months releasing hormones steadily over time much like the human body naturally does. For men, Testosterone Pellets and Injections have become popular due to their increased effectivenes over creams, gels and patches with regards to absorption.
What is Bio-Identical Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The treatment of replacing the natural sex hormones men and women lose over time is hormone replacement therapy. To replace these hormones small pellets are placed just under the skin usually in the upper outer buttocks. Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used in the United States since 1939. When Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets are used this means the hormones are biologically Identical to the natural hormones and level you had when you were in your early 20’s, when you were at your peak of sexual health, strength, mental clarity, drive and ambition.
Bio-Identical Hormones are different than synthetic or animal-derived hormones, the most common being Premarin, conjugated estrogen. This is the synthetic estrogen used in the Women’s Health Initiative Study showing an increase in breast cancer, cervical cancer, strokes and heart attacks. This study involved over 16,000 women. The study was stopped early for ethical reasons. After the results were made known, many physicians stopped giving this medication and many women refused to take synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones have become increasingly popular as they can be a safer and more effective method of hormone replacement for both men and women.
Bio-Identical Pellet Hormones are about the size of rice and are made from a natural plant source, usually yams or soy. These types of hormones do not have the side effects seen in synthetic hormone replacement. The Pellets are comprised of Testosterone and Estradiol. Bi-Est a combination of is a combination of two estrogens: estriol and estradiol and is most commonly found in a ratio of 80:20, estriol to estradiol. This combination allows for all of the protection of estriol while providing the cardiovascular and osteoporosis benefits of estradiol. Natural Progesterone is usually taken in tablet form. When one uses Bio-Identical Pellet Hormones there is no need for injections, pills, creams or patches. Patches have a tendency to cause rashes and are not well absorbed by the body.
