Bioidentical Pellet Therapy for Hormone Balance
Raleigh Bioidentical Pellet Therapy Expert, Jennifer Yap, D.O. keeps up-to-date on the most effective, natural treatments for her patients. She knows that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a fantastic way to treat hormone imbalances, as well as minimize or eliminate the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and andropause.
Bioidentical Hormone supplements the body with hormones in which it has become deficient in order to bring your endocrine system back into a state of balance. Dr. Yap and her staff have seen countless men and women from Raleigh, Cary, and surrounding Wake County, NC, recover from hormone imbalances and regain their health and vitality.
If you’re already familiar with Bioidentical Hormones, you know that many physicians like Dr. Yap prefer this natural treatment over the synthetic hormones used in regular, non-identical hormone replacement therapy. This is because Bioidentical Hormones contain the exact chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally produced by the human body, and because they are derived from natural plant sources such as soy and yams.
But, BHRT is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There are several factors to consider before you start on a Bioidentical Hormone protocol. One of the most important is the form of treatment through which you receive BHRT.
Pellets vs. Other Forms Of BHRT
Most forms of BHRT rely on providing the body with supplemental Bioidentical Hormones on a regular basis. This may mean coming into the doctor’s office for a shot every few weeks or rubbing cream on your skin several times a day. While these are all effective means of receiving BHRT, for some patients the sudden influx of hormones at particular times causes disruptive side effects.
Unlike other forms of dosing options, Bioidentical Hormone Pellets are a sustainable long-term way to receive Bioidentical Hormones. Bioidentical Hormone Pellets are tiny pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, that are injected just beneath the skin into the hip or buttock. Most patients say this experience is painless and even easier than having your blood drawn.
Over 3–6 months, the pellet slowly dissolves, secreting hormones into your body in a slow, gradual way. This prevents the shock that some patients experience from suddenly receiving an influx of hormones. Once the pellets have dissolved there is no residue or marks left on the skin.
Bioidentical Pellet Therapy provided by Raleigh Bioidentical Pellet Therapy Expert, Jennifer Yap, D.O. can be used to deliver personalized dosages that are on-demand via a pellet. If a patient’s body requires more hormone because of vigorous exercise, the Bioidentical Pellet will deliver more hormone to the system to keep up with the demand.
Hormones Available With BHRT Pellets
Bioidentical hormone pellets are available for both men and women, and the hormones that may be received from this method include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This makes them a viable treatment option for menopause, perimenopause, andropause and more.
