How do hormone pellets work? Bioidentical hormone pellets are the answer to the unwanted effects of shifting hormones. People of all genders and ages are subject to these radical and life-disrupting changes. Often, symptoms of hormone imbalances are covert and mimic other conditions. Pellets work by going to the source of your struggles without adding stress to your life. The experts at Huntington Lifestyle Partners in Pasadena, CA will identify the cause of your unwanted mental and bodily changes to have you feeling like yourself again.
What Are Bioidentical Hormone Pellets?
Bioidentical hormone replacement pelleting (BHRT) is a hassle-free way to administer necessary hormones that keep your body in balance. BHRT contains plant-based hormones that mimic those created naturally in your body.
Instead of using pills, creams, or patches, your physician strategically places a pellet into your body. This tiny pellet infuses your bloodstream with a sustained and steady flow of hormones to deliver consistent relief.
Patients opt for this method because it doesn’t require a daily application routine. Once we’ve placed the pellet, you receive hormone therapy until the pellet is absorbed fully.
Who Can Use Hormone Pellets?
Bioidentical hormone replacement pelleting is suitable for anyone who suffers from a hormone deficiency or hormone imbalance.
Most people know that aging women endure substantial hormonal shifts, but few realize that men do, too. We serve patients of all genders, ages, and walks of life who are living with unsettling symptoms caused by inadequate hormone levels.
Is a Hormone Imbalance Negatively Affecting Your Life?
If you already know that you have a hormone imbalance and have sought treatment, you are aware of how hormone replacement can help you. However, many patients are unaware that a hormonal issue exists because the symptoms aren’t always straightforward. Understanding the relationship between hormones and the rest of the body can dramatically change your life.
These vital chemical messengers orchestrate the symphony of the body. Without them, we couldn’t survive. Hormones dictate growth, heart rate, reproductive cycles, sexual function, and body temperature, among other things.
Causes of Hormone Deficiencies and Imbalances
Naturally caused hormone imbalances occur during times of physical change, such as puberty, andropause, or menopause. Prolonged stress, endocrine disorders, diabetes, poor diet, medications, anorexia, genetics, and exposure to environmental triggers can also cause imbalances and deficiencies.
Impact on Mood, Weight, and Sexual Function
Mood and hormones are linked. If you experience motivation issues, fatigue, mood changes, or depression, a hormone imbalance could be to blame. Likewise, hormone deficiencies also cause sudden, unexplained weight gain and sexual dysfunction.
Bioidentical hormone pellets get to the root of your symptoms to usher in relief from:
- Bone loss
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Focus problems
- Hair loss
- Hot flashes
- Joint pain
- Menstruation irregularities
- Mood swings
- Motivation issues
- Muscle loss
- Night sweats
- Painful intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
How Do Hormone Pellets Work?
Hormone pellets are the next generation of BHRT that patients prefer because they save time and take the guesswork out of treatment. This treatment requires only a few regular but quick visits to our office each year rather than daily maintenance.
A Fast, Simple Process
Each hormone pellet is about the size of one grain of rice, and you will feel no discomfort during insertion.
During your visit to our state-of-the-art Pasadena office, we prepare the insertion location by sterilizing and applying a gentle numbing agent. We skillfully insert the tiny pellet into the area between the hip and buttock. We cover the insertion location and you are free to resume your day.
The entire process takes less than 15 minutes. Each pellet can last between three and six months depending on absorption rates, gender, weight, and the degree of your deficiency.
Immediate Action, Sustained Results
Every patient experiences the life-changing effects of BHRT a little differently because we each have unique body chemistry. All patients reap the benefits of hormone optimization pellets after insertion. Still, it takes time for the full effect to manifest.
The pellet contains nothing except the hormones needed to bring your body into harmony. Once placed, each pellet slowly dissolves to give you an ongoing and sustainable source of hormones. Many patients enjoy symptom relief within the first three weeks of treatment. Please wait at least eight weeks to assess the maximized benefits of pelleting.
Nothing Left Behind
After three to six months, the pellet dissolves completely and leaves no evidence of having been in your body. It’s important to remember that pellets contain nothing other than the hormones your doctor deems necessary for treatment.
Behind the Scenes Action
In the weeks following initial insertion, your body changes in incredible, and previously unimaginable ways. You may experience more energy, better sleep, improved sex drive, weight loss, hair growth, and a reduction in wrinkles.
Most patients need only visit us three or four times per year to receive a new bioidentical hormone replacement pellet.
