Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Pellets for Men and Women

BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BIHRT)

Hormones are signaling molecules produced by glands and transported in the blood to distant organs to regulate physiology and behavior. They are very potent and have many functions.

Research after research shows the benefit of BIHRT with little to no side effects. BIHRT does NOT increase the risk for breast or prostate cancer. In fact, it has been shown to reduce them.

Hormones and their benefits & symptoms

Estrogen

Works almost everywhere in the body. This includes in the brain/memory, blood vessels, blood pressure, bones, muscles, skin, breasts and uterus. Estrogen is also an anti-oxidant.

Progesterone

Balances estrogen, protects the uterus, helps sleep, decreases swelling, improves cholesterol profile and it’s anti-inflammatory.

Thyroid

Thyroid Works on metabolism, energy, memory, and body temperature.

Cortisol

Mediates the stress response. Increases blood sugar to give energy. Needed for motivation, stable blood sugar and blood pressure. 
Actives the sympathetic nervous system.

Testosterone

Considered a male hormone but women have it too. Works on libido, skin, mood, sense of wellbeing, natural anti-depressant, muscle mass, strength and memory. Testosterone is converted to Estrogen.

Dehydroepiandrosterone

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is the most abundant naturally occurring steroid hormone secreted by your adrenal glands. Your body uses DHEA to produce testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.

If you have any of the following symptoms on consistent basis, you likely have a hormonal imbalance.

  • Significant PMS
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Bloating
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty waking
  • Decrease muscle mass
  • Agitation
  • Adult acne
  • Thinning of hair on the head (male pattern baldness)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fibroids
  • Decrease sex drive
As we age and due to our lifestyle, the levels of our hormones decrease and become suboptimal. When that happens, a hormone imbalance develops and symptoms begin to appear. HRT optimizes the hormones, helps restore the balance to the body and relieves symptoms. BIHRT has a protective effect towards the heart, vasculature, prostate, breast and bones.
Bioidentical means that the hormone used for treatment has the same structure as your own natural hormone. It has the same effect and strength. Non-identical hormones have a similar structure but not identical. They are much stronger and do not get metabolized correctly Non- identical hormones are not natural and do not show up on estrogen blood test.
