Hormone imbalances are more common than you may think, so if you’re suffering from a deficiency, know that you’re not alone. At our Revive Wellness Group locations in Gibsonburg and Perrysburg, OH, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with hormone pellets. This treatment method gives your body all the hormones you need to achieve balance, reduce and alleviate the symptoms associated with a hormone deficiency, and feel your best.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Hormone Pellets?
You’ve heard of hormone pellets, and you’re intrigued, but you’re unsure if they’re right for you. Pellet therapy has become a popular option for both men and women suffering from hormonal deficiencies because it is a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that offers many different benefits. We’ve outlined some of the main factors that can help you determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment process.
You Have a Hormone Imbalance
One of the main determining factors as to whether you are a good candidate for any form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment is that you are suffering from an actual hormone deficiency. Many different symptoms indicate such, but diagnostic testing is the only way to tell for sure.
A full blood panel will test your hormone levels and provide you with more details about your unique deficiency so that you can move forward and begin the treatment process. If you think that you are suffering from a deficiency but don’t know for sure, diagnostic testing is the best way to confirm your deficiency and take the necessary steps to treat it with pellet therapy.
You Want To Alleviate Negative Symptoms
Low hormone levels lead to the onset of many different symptoms which interfere with daily life. Whether you’re suffering from one or multiple symptoms of a hormone deficiency, you don’t need to continue living a life defined by your deficiency.
If you want to alleviate the symptoms of a hormone imbalance, you may be a good candidate for this treatment because pellet therapy will resolve your symptoms and replace all those negative symptoms with benefits. As soon as the pellet enters your bloodstream, you will begin to experience the benefits and will continue to as your hormones continue to rise. Some of the most common symptoms of hormonal deficiency include:
- Brain fog
- Anxiety and depression
- Unexplained weight gain
- Inability to gain lean muscle mass
- Feeling like you’re on an emotional roller coaster
- Chronic fatigue
- Dry skin
- Sexual dysfunction
- Low libido
- Hair loss
- Poor bone density
- Inability to concentrate
- Food cravings
You Don’t Want To Self-Administer Hormones
There are many different forms of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy prescribed to patients through different treatment methods to help treat deficiencies. However, many of these methods require self-administration. That means you will need to inject hormones, apply a cream, take oral tablets, or administer your hormones daily, weekly, or bi-weekly based on your treatment plan. If you’d rather not spend time administering your own bioidentical hormones, you don’t have to.
Hormone pellets are administered here in our office, and once you schedule your treatment, all you have to do is show up. Our experts will take care of the rest, and you’ll never have to administer your hormones yourself. You’ll just get to experience all the benefits of balance once these hormones enter your bloodstream and begin working to resolve your symptoms and balance your hormone levels.
You Want a Long-Lasting Solution That Will Balance Your Hormones
Some hormone therapy treatment methods must be administered daily, weekly, or monthly to help patients maintain balance. If you’re looking for a treatment that delivers long-lasting results, pellet therapy is the perfect option. Once you undergo the treatment process, you can expect to experience all the benefits of balanced hormones for up to six months at a time.
As soon as your body uses all of the hormones in the pellet, we can administer an additional pellet to help you maintain balanced hormones. Patients typically need two to three treatments per year to achieve optimal hormone levels. This treatment delivers long-lasting results and helps men and women maintain balanced hormones with very few follow-up treatments throughout the year.
What Are Hormone Pellets?
Hormone pellets are tiny pellets about the size of a grain of rice custom dosed with all of the bioidentical hormones your body needs to correct a hormonal deficiency. They are custom made for the patient suffering from a hormone deficiency and injected just below the skin’s surface in an area with fatty tissue during a minimally invasive treatment process.
How Do They Work?
Since these pellets contain all the hormones your body needs for balance, as soon as they’re injected, your body will begin absorbing the hormones directly into the bloodstream, and you’ll begin to feel the benefits of balance and a decrease in your symptoms. These bioidentical hormones closely mimic the hormones your body creates naturally.
Because they are near-identical matches to your natural hormones, your body accepts them, uses them, and as a result, you experience all the benefits of balance. As they enter the bloodstream, your body uses the precise amount of hormones it needs over time until the entire pellet is absorbed. Once absorbed, a follow-up treatment is necessary to maintain balanced hormone levels.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Once you undergo this treatment, you can expect to see an improvement in your symptoms within days to weeks of beginning the treatment process. Patients achieve different results based on their deficiencies, but you can rest assured that you will achieve some noticeable results. Some of the benefits that come from beginning treatment with this particular method of hormone replacement therapy include:
- Increased sex drive
- Healthy weight loss
- Increased energy levels
- Mental clarity
- Balanced emotions
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Improved bone density
- Improved skin and hair health
- Improved sexual function
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once we perform the necessary diagnostic testing and determine your hormone levels, we can proceed with the treatment process. The treatment process only takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete. You’ll arrive at our office and be situated in one of our treatment rooms, and then one of our medical experts will sanitize the skin in an area with fatty tissue, typically the lower hip, and then make a very small incision.
This incision is so small that it does not require stitches post-treatment, just a piece of tape. Once the incision is made, the pellet will be inserted, and you’ll be provided with aftercare instructions for the days following your treatment to ensure that you do not disturb the newly implanted pellet. Typically, you will be asked to avoid getting the injection site wet, avoid lower body workouts for several days and avoid touching the implanted pellet.
How Long Will I Need Treatment?
Hormone replacement therapy treatment plans vary based on patients and their unique needs. Once you begin treatment, you can rest assured that we will closely monitor your hormone levels and provide you with details about how long you can expect to undergo treatment to balance your hormones and achieve optimal health and wellness.
Different factors will determine your ultimate treatment plan, including your deficiency, symptoms, and health and wellness goals. An initial consultation at our office is the best way to learn more about hormone pellets, what your potential treatment plan will look like, and what you can expect from the treatment process as a whole.
Are Hormone Pellets Safe?
Hormone pellets provide men and women with a safe way to balance their hormones naturally. If you’re suffering from a deficiency and want to begin pellet therapy, you can rest assured that this process is safe and effective and will restore balance to your body. We will monitor your hormone levels throughout the treatment process to ensure that the pellet gives your body what it needs to achieve and maintain a long-term hormonal balance.
