Common Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance for WOMEN

  • Fatigue, lethargy and lack of motivation
  • Hot flashes, vaginal dryness & night sweats
  • Infrequent menstrual cycles – or lack of menstrual cycle – prior to menopause
  • Hair loss
  • Inability to focus or remember
  • Mood swings, anxiety & depression
  • Insomnia and night sweats
  • Saggy, dry, aging skin
  • Loss of libido, difficulty achieving arousal and orgasm
  • Stubborn weight gain, belly fat and food cravings
  • Frequent Urinary Tract Infections

If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, then you are a candidate for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). BHRT with pellets is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies. With BHRT, the structure of the hormone- testosterone, estrogen or both- is matched to the individual patient’s needs. BHRT are natural, plant-based substances that metabolize in our bodies the way nature intended.

Who can benefit from BHRT via pellets and how?

As we age, testosterone, estrogen and progesterone naturally decline over time. Around age 35, men experience a gradual reduction in testosterone, typically 2 to 10 percent per year. For women, pre-menopause may start as early as in their 30s. In fact, often hormone imbalance kick in long before hot flashes do – by 10 to 15 years!

Do you feel like many men and women in their 30s, 40s and beyond whom…..

• lack motivation and feel more tired than usual
• gains weight for no reason- especially belly fat!
• experiencing mood swings more frequently
• feels anxious and depressed
• struggles with brain fog and insomnia
• wonders why their sexual desire and libido have tapered off

If these symptoms sound familiar, you may be an excellent candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy.

How do other BHRT therapy options – creams, patches, pills and injections compare to pellets?

Research consistently shows pellet implants offer the most effective method to deliver hormones in both men and women. Implanted in the fatty tissue under the skin, pellets release a constant stream of hormones into the body, 27/7/365, most closely mimicking the way the body naturally releases hormones.

Convenience is also a big factor. With pellets, patients undergo the procedure 3-4 times a year and get on with their lives. Other modalities, like pills and messy creams, need to be used daily.

How soon will the patient feel the effects of BHRT via pellets?

Most female patients start to “feel better” within 48 to 72 hours, though it may take a week or two for some women to notice a difference. Men can expect to experience the benefits of their pellet implants within 1 to 2 weeks. To achieve optimal health, living a healthy lifestyle – balanced diet and regular exercise – goes hand-in-hand with hormone balance.

We hear about estrogen and progesterone, but do women need testosterone, too?

Estrogen loss puts women at risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. These risks increase the longer a woman suffers estrogen deficiency.

However, women also need testosterone! Imbalanced testosterone levels in women may compromise mental clarity, libido and muscle tone and mass. The brain needs testosterone in balance with estrogen – and a healthy gut – to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance.

Can BHRT help patients lose weight?

BHRT is NOT a magic bullet for losing weight, however, when hormones are optimized, weight loss efforts typically begin to pay off. Patients still need to eat a balanced diet and exercise, and increased energy levels will help in that area!

What BHRT may do is increase energy, improve quality of sleep, increase muscle mass and fat burning and decrease cortisol (which causes belly fat and type 2 Diabetes). So, those stubborn 5 or 10 lbs. you’ve been battling? That’s where the weight loss benefits of BHRT may shine through.

Can BHRT help patients get their sex life back on track?

Hormone imbalance and “Low T” are by far the most common causes of sexual dysfunction in men and women. By balancing hormone levels with pellet therapy, most patients have experienced a return of or significant improvement to their sexual libido and function.
