The seven dreaded dwarves of MENOPAUSE:
itchy, b**tchy, sweaty, sleepy, bloated, forgetful & psycho.
But WHAT IF instead they were: Gorgeous, glowing, glam, fueled, fit, fun & chic! You can have the latter with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones offer a safe, effective and hassle-free approach to correcting hormone imbalances. So why bio-identical? The bio-identical hormone molecule, made from yams, is an exact molecular structure of hormones that the body produces naturally. Versus a synthetic molecule, found in most injections, creams and oral tablets, is a different molecular structure than what the body produces and is derived from animal parts or urine.
Now let’s compare methods of administration. Hormone replacement therapy can be delivered by way of topical creams, injectable solutions, patches, oral tablets and subcutaneous pellets. Though no one size fits all, for the majority, the pellet route has proven to be superior to all other methods for several reasons. First, subcutaneous pellets allow for a very consistent release of hormones, avoiding a roller coaster-like effect often experienced with oral, injectable and topical administration routes. Because absorption from pellets occurs over a 3 to 4-month period in women, it offers patients a very convenient and consistent delivery method without requiring a daily pill or a weekly injection. Other notable benefits seen only in pellet administration include:
- Unlimited dosing options
- Predictable absorption
- Avoidance of unnecessary risk of platelet aggregation
- Convenience for the patient
- Improved patient compliance
- Improves lipids, insulin sensitivity and body composition
- No increased risk of breast or prostate cancer
- No increase in blood clots, heart attack or stroke
