The Benefits of Pellet Therapy Over Other Hormone Replacement Therapy:
• Consistent Dosage Through-Out
• Lasts 3-6 months
• No Injections
• No Creams
• No Spike in Hormone Levels
As we age, both men and women will start to experience symptoms of hormonal imbalance. For men, this is called andropause, and for women it can be related to perimenopause, menopause or postmenopause.
The symptoms for males and females are somewhat the same. For men, as they age and their hormonal testosterone levels begin to decline, most men will experience symptoms like lack of energy, low libido, loss of muscle, weight gain, decreased mental focus, hair loss and low metabolism.
Females tend to experience an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone, which can lead to hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety, depression, brain fog, weight gain, loss of muscle, irritability and bone deficiency. Bone loss in women can exacerbate stress fractures caused by osteopenia or osteoporosis.
For men and women, changing the hormone levels through bio-identical hormone therapy can alleviate or in many cases eliminate these symptoms and life fluctuations. There are even studies now that suggest bio-identical hormones can help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
What Are Bio-Identical Hormones?
In the U.S., bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHT) has been used since the 1930s. And based on hundreds of current medically thorough studies, the results for patients overall quality of life and dramatic changes in their hormonal symptoms are astounding.
Bio-identical hormones are equal to our body’s natural hormones on a molecular level. The difference between synthetic and identical hormones is that synthetic hormones do not match human hormones on a biological level. For example, a very common synthetic estrogen cream that many physicians prescribe is made from a pregnant horse’s urine. Most people can see why this substance would not be fully accepted by the body.
Bio-identical hormones are made from plant sources and are easily received by the body as natural and normal. They are much more therapeutic and effective than synthetic hormonal substances.
Men and women’s bodies are extremely similar, especially their tissues. Both males and Females need testosterone and estrogen in their bodies for overall health and wellbeing on many levels.
Mutually, men and women do not need high levels of flowing estrogen in their bodies. Consequently, our bodies need circulating testosterone. This enables the body to make and regulate how much estrogen is needed. In short, testosterone naturally regulates estrogen levels within the cellular structure.
Many women are skeptical of testosterone therapy for menopausal symptoms because they believe it’s just for men. But testosterone is very important for females, and the dosing is highly regulated by your physician. It is essential for females to have appropriate testosterone levels. This in turn, will naturally regulate their estrogen. As we age, our testosterone levels are constantly decreasing.
Low Testosterone Can Lead To:
• Heart Disease
• Metabolic Syndrome
• Cognitive Decline
• And many more issues in both males and females
What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet Therapy is a bio-identical hormone treatment that is time-released. It’s a small pellet the size of a sunflower seed, and it’s placed in a very tiny incision in the upper buttocks region of the hip. Females need approximately one pellet, which lasts for approximately three months, while males need about two to four pellets that will last for about four to six months.
When hormones are injected, you receive a large dose into your body immediately, and that can be overwhelming to your cells. When taking the pill form of hormones, the levels are broken down in the liver and never fully reach the bloodstream to make a significant impact. When using creams, the dose is not well regulated, since absorption is dependent of the individual’s skin and various health factors.
The most effective form of bio-identical hormone therapy is in pellet form. At Medical Masters, they run in-depth hormonal lab panels on all of their patients before and throughout therapy to determine any imbalance, and also to track their patients progress.
In 2007, Steven Coleman, D.O. founded Medical Masters, as a response to the obvious inadequacies in “traditional medicine.” Dr. Coleman’s medical expertise and qualifications are far-reaching. His practice focuses on combined efforts through synergist approaches, and on integrative methods, regenerative medicine and proactive preventative treatment options.
