Fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, depression, a low sex-drive–these symptoms that could be present in your daily life are possibly linked to having too much or too little of a specific hormone. Men and women alike have these struggles and often turn to modern, mainstream medicine to make adjustments, but frequently encounter more problems than solutions. Connection Primary Care offers an effective, alternative treatment that targets the root of the issues while dodging the unwanted side effects of synthetic medicine.
Bioidentical vs. Synthetic
It’s a world of patches and pills. The most common method for hormone replacement therapy involves man-made medicine that mimics the basic functions of natural hormones but is not chemically or biologically structured in the same ways causing problems in the human body’s response to them. According to Harvard Health Publishing, a well-known hormone pill, Premarin, is synthesized with the urine of pregnant horses as well as other various substances. However, bioidentical hormones, as the name suggests, are structured similarly to the natural hormones the body produces. Therefore, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is capable of restoring the deficient hormones without the adverse effects of synthetic hormone replacement. There are several methods of BHRT, but there is one that has proven to be superior in relieving the symptoms of hormone imbalance.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet Therapy is a method that uses bioidentical hormones to replace the ones lacking in the body. The way it works is a small pellet is inserted through the hip and slowly dissolves for 3 to 6 months depending on the needed dosage. It distributes consistent and appropriate levels of hormones into the bloodstream during this time. According to various studies, patients had more success and fewer changes in hormone levels than standard HRT methods such as creams, gels, pills, patches, and injections. Many experienced decreased symptoms of menopause, better sleep, improved libido, and maintained bone density. These benefits begin to manifest around 7 to 10 days, and in some, as few as 2 to 3 days. Overall, this method of BHRT has been shown to deliver the best-known results in the health care industry.
