As you get older, your body changes, and so do your hormone levels. These changing hormone levels will affect your mental and physical health. You may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance, which is experienced by millions of middle-aged people all around the world.

We can restore balance to your hormone levels and alleviate frustrating symptoms such as memory loss, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. Contact us today or visit us in Perrysburg, OH, to schedule your consultation.
What is BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)?
Bioidentical hormones are artificial hormones that precisely mimic your natural sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone. These synthetic hormones can correct a surplus or deficit of certain sex hormones. We mostly use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for patients experiencing age-related changes, such as menopause. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is suitable for men and women struggling with hormone imbalances. BHRT treatments can help patients cope with mental and physical symptoms.
What is BHRT Pellet Therapy?
BHRT is administered with hormone pellets to deliver the correct amount of hormones to your body. Your body needs your hormones to be in balance to function properly. With BHRT pellet therapy, we can alleviate symptoms to provide some relief. We cannot reverse the hormonal changes since this is a natural part of aging. However, alleviating symptoms will benefit your physical and mental health.
Hormone pellets are used to deliver synthesized bioidentical hormones to your body. The BHRT pellet is as small as a grain of rice and is placed in the muscular tissue of your lower hip. It offers a slow release as opposed to pills and injections. Your immune system takes a few months to absorb the pellet, allowing your body to adapt gradually and naturally. Many patients prefer BHRT pellet therapy to other hormone replacement methods. This also eliminates the unnecessary stress of taking medication daily.
We will make a small incision in your lower hip to insert the pellet. We usually choose the lower hip since it is a fleshy area of the body. Once we insert the pellet, we will tape the incision closed. We will provide you with instructions on how to care for the wound. This should take between 10-20 minutes.
Why Do Hormone Imbalances Occur?
As we mentioned, hormonal imbalances will likely occur as you age. This is due to the changes in hormone levels in middle-aged men and women. However, other factors, like stress, chronic illnesses, and malnutrition, can cause hormone imbalances. This imbalance will affect your anxiety, weight, sleeping habits, and mood. BHRT therapy can effectively reduce these symptoms, bringing much-needed relief.
Signs You Need BHRT Treatments
It may not always be clear that you are experiencing a hormone imbalance. After all, many of us experience weight gain, sleeping problems, anxiety, and memory loss from time to time. However, if these symptoms disrupt your life or can’t be explained, you may benefit from hormone replacement therapy. If you notice some of the following symptoms, you should consider BHRT treatments:
- Low sex drive.
- Mood swings.
- Chronic stress.
- Unexplained weight gain.
- Difficulty falling and staying asleep.
These symptoms may not always be obvious and can often be caused by other things. If you are unsure, you can always visit us for a consultation.
Schedule a Consultation To Discuss Your BHRT Treatment
The best way to begin your BHRT is with a consultation. During your initial consultation, we will assess your health condition and lifestyle choices to determine whether your hormones are imbalanced. We will ask you to complete bloodwork to assess your hormone levels. If your hormones are not balanced, and you are a suitable candidate for BHRT pellet therapy, we can create a BHRT treatment plan with hormone pellets.
The Benefits of BHRT Pellet Therapy
The best part of BHRT is the relief it offers. Hormone pellets will improve your sleeping habits, stress levels, mental clarity, and energy levels. In addition to alleviating these disrupting symptoms, BHRT treatments are convenient and efficient. Here are some other benefits of using BHRT pellet therapy.
For patients experiencing memory loss as a result of hormone imbalances, daily pills may prove to be a nuisance. Hormone pellets offer a few months of relief. You won’t have to remember to take pills every day.
Since the pellets offer a slow-release delivery of bioidentical hormones, patients will experience a gradual change in their hormone levels. Results may take between two to four weeks to become noticeable.
Your BHRT session won’t take longer than 20 minutes, making it perfect if you have a tight schedule.
BHRT pellets may offer relief for 3-5 months in women and 5-6 months in men. However, results can differ for each patient and depend on physical activity, stress, and other medication. When the results start to wear off, you can arrange another BHRT treatment to maintain lasting results.
