You are Ruled by Your Hormones
Did you know hormones rule your world? That’s right! Hormones are responsible for most of your bodily functions and affect everything from your digestion, to appetite, immune function, libido, and mood. Even a slight imbalance in your hormones can have an enormous effect on how you feel. And that’s why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy might be just what the doctor ordered.
Fortunately, it’s fast and straightforward to re-balance your hormones with hormone replacement therapy. But not all hormone replacement is created equally. So, we’re here to teach you the difference between Hormone Replacement Therapy and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. That way, you can choose the treatment that’s right for you!
Hormone Replacement Therapy vs. Bioidentical HRT
Your hormones fluctuate daily, and your levels decrease as you age. So, if you don’t feel your best, you’re not alone. Luckily, you can replace some of your primary hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
With standard hormone replacement, your doctor replaces your hormones with synthetic hormones derived from pregnant horses’ urine and other synthetic hormones. Traditional hormone therapy is effective and will make you feel better.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants and are chemically identical to your natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones come in pellets, pills, creams, gels, and injections.
What Are BHRT Pellets?
BHRT pellets are bioidentical hormones in a pellet form that your doctor inserts under your skin.
Bioidentical hormones are derived and manufactured from plants such as yams and soy plants, creating compounds that are chemically identical to your natural hormones.
How Do You Get Pellets?
To begin BHRT, you’ll need a comprehensive blood work panel in order to customize your pellet treatment to your specific needs. During your consultation, your physician also will review your clinical symptoms to correlate with your blood hormone levels, and to come up with the best treatment plan. Your provider will insert tiny BHRT pellets under the skin of your buttock. If you’re low in certain hormones, you may be a fantastic candidate for BHRT.
However, please understand – BHRT does not treat disease!
How Fast Do Bio-Identical Pellets Work?
When you’re not feeling well, you need a solution that will work quickly. You’ll see the benefits of hormone therapy in as little as 2-4 weeks. However, full hormone optimization can take up to six months, depending on your needs.
What Symptoms Do Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets Treat?
A hormone imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms, and some of them can be downright debilitating. Here are some of the primary symptoms:
