Bio Identical
Hormone Therapy

As you age, your body produces less testosterone, estrogen, and progestin's - essential hormones that affect many important functions of the body. And this leads to the declining health conditions that reduce your quality of life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy is an individually prescribed approach that naturally restores the right balance of hormones to reverse this trend. It's safe, reliable and clinically proven to dramatically restore vitality, energy, health and well-being.
            For women Hormone therapy can help alleviate the menopausal symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, sleeplessness, vaginal dryness, memory loss, incontinence, heart palpitations, thinning skin, water retention, and hair loss.
            For men testosterone hormone therapy can increase libido, decrease depression, increase concentration, alleviate lack of motivation and slow or stop weight gain.
            Clinical data supports that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is the most effective and the most bio-identical method to deliver hormones in both men and women. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
           
          In short Bioidentical Hormone therapy allows you stay balanced
 What are Pellets?
 
Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. These pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a ‘tic tac ™' .
            Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, ofBIHT_Picture1.png hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery.
            Pellets do not carry with them the same risk of breast cancer as high doses of oral estrogens that do not maintain the correct estrogen ratio or hormone metabolites. Nor, do they increase the risk of breast cancer like the synthetic, estrogens used in the Women's Health Initiative Trial. Data supports that balanced, bio-identical hormones are breast protective.
            The pellets usually last between 3 and 5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. The pellets do not need to be removed. They completely dissolve on their own
            Testosterone delivered by a pellet implant, has been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency. In both men and women, testosterone has been shown to increase energy, relieve depression, increase sense of well being, relieve anxiety and improve memory and concentration.
 

BIHT_Picture2.pngHow and where are
pellets inserted?

 
The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. The pellets are usually inserted in the lower abdominal wall or upper buttocks through a small incision, which is then taped, closed. The experience of the health care professional matters a great deal, not only in placing the pellets, but also in determining the correct dosage of hormones to be used.
 
Are there any side effects or complications from the insertion of the pellets?
            Complications from the insertion of pellets include; minor bleeding or bruising, discoloration of the skin, infection, and the possible extrusion of the pellet. Other than slight bruising, or discoloration of the skin, these complications are very rare . Testosterone may cause a slight increase in facial hair in some women. Testosterone stimulates the bone marrow and increases the production of red blood cells. A low testosterone level in older men can be a cause of anemia. Testosterone, delivered by implants or other methods, can cause an elevation in the red blood cells. If the hemoglobin and hematocrit (blood count) get too high, a unit of blood may be donated.
            After the insertion of the implants, vigorous physical activity is avoided for 48 hours in women and up to 5 to 7 days in men. Early physical activity is a cause of ‘extrusion', which is a pellet working it's way out. Antibiotics may be prescribed if a patient is diabetic or has had a joint replaced. However, this is a ‘clean procedure' and antibiotics may not be needed.

             In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance.
