Hormone Replacement Therapy in Millersville and Crofton, MD
You can feel healthier and look younger again with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets. As we age, most men and women notice physical and emotional changes as a result of a decrease in natural hormone levels compared to early adulthood. If you’re left with the feeling you just aren’t your old, energetic self, or you experience symptoms such as feeling chronically tired, lacking a sex drive, packing on extra weight, or struggling to focus and think clearly through a mental fog, you might be experiencing some common examples of hormone deficiency-related symptoms.
Did any of these symptoms sound familiar? If you feel as though we’re describing you personally instead of common symptoms, you may be a good candidate to enjoy an energy boost from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy pellets.
What Is BHRT?
BHRT pellets utilize hormones that are identical to those created by your body naturally. This type of therapy has helped transform health care for both men and women as they grow older. BHRT is an alternative to any of the older treatment options that use synthetic hormones. For example, injectable testosterone and female hormones derived from horse urine (including brand-name Premarin) are well-known versions of synthetic hormones with controversial results and side effects.
With BHRT, pharmacists are able to administer a custom dosage for your unique needs instead of being forced to choose from only a few set dosage choices that are available in mass-produced hormone therapies. BHRT prevents a pharmacist from relying on a one-size-fits-all approach to supplementing depleted natural hormone levels.
Benefits for Men and Women
Patients who take a customized dosage of BHRT to increase their falling hormone levels report a boost of energy. Some common benefits include:
- Enhanced Sexual Libido
- Improved Mental Clarity
- Reduced Body Fat
- Decreased Depression and Anxiety
- Healthy Sense of Well-Being
- Better Uninterrupted Sleep at Night
- Fewer Night Sweats and/or Hot Flashes
Where Does BHRT Come From?
A more natural approach to traditional synthetics, BHRT leverages bioidentical hormones that contain the exact same molecular structure as those produced by the human body; this is commonly called “natural hormone therapy.” While the hormones are not found like this in nature, they are created with plant compounds derived from yams and soy. This natural hormone therapy can provide relief from the symptoms of hormone deficiency.
How Do the Pellets Work?
A new technology advancement in BHRT, the pellet form offers advantages over previous generations of creams, patches, and other delivery methods. The pellets are a rice-sized implant that delivers a consistent, customized treatment dose, eliminating the highs and lows of other hormone therapy treatments and much more convenient thanks to the long-acting release of the pellet.
