Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is a revolutionary method to counteract the changes in hormone levels and restore the quality of life.
The hormones are extracted from yams, soybeans or other natural plant sources as opposed to the synthetic hormones that are available commercially and hence bear the structural resemblance to the natural hormones found in the human body.
Why is BHRT Unique?
Their structural resemblance enables them to be recognized indigenous hormones and mimic the role of the body’s natural hormones. These are inserted subcutaneously into the body, in the buttock area just below the waistline from where they can be released into the blood stream.
Why is Pellet Therapy the preferred form of Treatment?
Pellet therapy is by far the most advanced, efficient and simple methods used in hormone therapy. This mode of dosage is practically painless.
These pellets can last up to 3 months in the body in case of a woman, and 6 months for men. They are slowly absorbed and released into the site of action depending upon the activity levels of the individuals.
It is also far superior compared to other modes of dosage like oral, topical or intramuscular modes of administration, which have been reported to show fluctuating levels of circulation and inconsistent and turbulent absorption. The pellet method ensures a smooth and steady supply of the hormones and is very responsive to the needs of the body, releasing higher dosages as and when the body seems to require it.
How are Pellets Inserted?
A pellet insertion is ideally done after checking the blood for current hormone levels. It is a 5 – 10 minute procedure wherein the buttock area is sterilized with rubbing alcohol and anaesthetised using lidocaine.
A small incision, no larger than 1 mm is made on the skin, and the pellet is inserted below the fatty layer of the skin. Sterile strips are used to close the incision and hormones are consistently released from the location. You will only feel like having a small bruise without any additional discomforts.
How can BHRT Help Me?
BHRT will not just help you tackle the symptoms of imbalanced hormone levels; it has also been proven to restore the quality of life. Men and women who have been experiencing symptoms of depression, lethargy, fatigue, decreased cognitive abilities, weight issues, lowered libido, due to decline in the level of hormones can be effectively treated for the same.
The best part about this therapy is that it has absolutely no side effects and is completely harmless and comes with a simple and convenient dosage form of pellet insertion.
