Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
One of the important regulatory systems embedded in your body's apparatus is your hormones. They act as messengers, designed to interact with specific target cells and organs and provoke a change or result. As we age, hormone production changes, and hormonal imbalance can occur as a result. Unbalanced hormones can have a variety of side effects and symptoms. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to naturally replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives.
Why Bio-identical Pellet Therapy?
Because its easy! As a patient, you are pelleted 2-4 insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT is a much better formulation of hormone replacement. Pellets have advantages over the other administrations of hormone therapies, primarily that the consistent administration of the hormone prevents rollercoaster dosing that comes from creams and pills.
How long does it take to work?
Each patient’s symptoms are unique and each patient’s paths to optimization is unique. By talking with Dr. Jackson, our Certified Hormone Specialist at Changes, you can make sure you are on the path to a healthier life. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to 6 months. Your journey will be specialized to fit your specific needs. Just as it doesn’t take you 1-2 weeks to get out of balance, it doesn't resolve that quickly either.
