Finding Your Best Health
Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said that health is our greatest possession. That statement is immensely powerful. If we don’t have good health, we spend inordinate amounts of time trying to fix it, lamenting its demise, or living with the effects its absence incurs.
In keeping with Chinese wisdom, an ancient Chinese curse entreats, “May you live in interesting times.” We do. As interesting as these times are, they also create stress, which wreaks havoc on our bodies, minds, and spirits. This stress creates disease in countless forms, including imbalance in our hormones.
As part of the endocrine system, hormones are responsible for innumerable bodily functions. In both men and women, hormones regulate:
- Blood pressure
- Creation of red blood cells
Of course, hormones are also related to gender and sexual function. Hormonal imbalance in women can appear as:
- Hot flashes
- Difficulty sleeping
- Vaginal dryness
In men, hormonal imbalance can be:
- Loss of muscle mass
- Weight gain
- Loss of libido
- Erectile dysfunction
Any or all of these symptoms may be debilitating. The good news is that they can be treated. Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is highly effective in minimizing or eliminating these symptoms and others.
Hormone replacement therapy, and, specifically, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, can be extremely effective in relieving symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Bioidentical hormones (or BHRT) are identical in structure to those naturally produced by our bodies. The identical nature of their structures means they are more easily absorbed by the body and much easier to regulate than synthetic or traditional hormone replacement therapy options.
BHRT can be administered via:
- Oral pills
- Sublingually (under the tongue)
While each option has its merits, pellets are particularly effective in the administration of BHRT.
Why BHRT Pellets?
BHRT pellet therapy is an effective treatment because the pellets last a lot longer than other therapeutic options, even up to several months. This is beneficial to the user because:
- You don’t have to remember to take pills or use a cream or gel daily.
- Pellets release a steady, small amount of hormones to be absorbed by the body as it needs them.
- Each pellet insert is compounded specifically for your hormonal needs.
- There are fewer side effects from pellets than there are with oral BHRT.
The process for insertion of a hormone pellet is quite simple. In a quick, in-office procedure, the tiny pellet (about the size of a grain of rice) is inserted, usually in the hip area. Insertion of the pellet requires a small incision which heals quickly, and that’s it. You don’t have to remember to take your BHRT daily.
