Hormones affect every aspect of our life. When hormone levels are low, it impacts the way a person feels, the way they act, and how they feel about themselves. Bioidentical pellet hormone therapy has helped many men and women get their life and their health back on track. When delivered in pellet form, this treatment can provide consistent hormone levels without the ups and downs that often accompany creams or patches.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Bioidentical pellet hormone therapy is a treatment whereby the hormones in a person’s body are replaced with synthetic hormones. These synthetic hormones are called bioidentical because they are manufactured in a way to be molecularly almost identical to the hormones that the human body naturally produces. Bioidentical hormones have been proven to be safer and more effective when compared to other types of hormones that are used.
Bioidentical hormones can be delivered to a patient via pellets. The pellet is inserted just underneath the skin. It is a minimally invasive treatment that requires little downtime. After you completely recover from the treatment, you’re able to go back to your normal exercise routines.
How Can You Benefit from Bioidentical Hormone Pellets?
The first benefit comes from the fact that the hormones are bioidentical. Since they are structurally the equivalent of what your body naturally makes, your body responds to them in a natural way. They are derived from hormones that are found in nature. This means that your body has fewer negative interactions. Since the pellets stay inside your body, they provide you with a constant dose of hormones.
This is drastically different than other forms of hormone therapy, in which the hormones are delivered to the body in spurts. When you get an injection, for example, the injection gives your body a jolt of the needed hormone. The same thing happens when you take a pill or when you use a cream. Essentially, it puts your body on a hormonal roller coaster, which can lead to unwanted side effects.
Is Pellet Hormone Therapy Safe?
Bioidentical hormone pellets are manufactured to meet the highest level of safety. They are prepared by pharmacies inside the United States. Rigorous testing goes into every batch of bioidentical hormones that are produced to make sure that they only have the best results.
Pellet hormone therapy has been able to help patients dealing with depression, anxiety, heart disease, low sex drive, reduced energy, and other conditions associated with a decrease in hormone production.
