Is Hormone Pellet Therapy Right for Me?
Though only needed in small amounts, your hormones are powerful chemicals directing the functions of many vital systems in your body. Even a slight change in blood hormones causes big changes in your body, affecting cell, tissue, and organ function. Imagine what happens to your body from the natural decline of sex hormones that occurs as you get older. You may struggle with fatigue and weight gain from these hormonal changes, but there’s more going on than just these physical symptoms.
At OnePeak Medical, our founder, Dr. Nisha Jackson, is a nationally recognized hormone expert. Dr. Jackson and our team of health experts understand how hormone imbalance affects your physical and emotional well-being. To restore hormone balance, we use hormone pellet therapy.
Here, we want to explain why hormone pellet therapy might be right for you.
Having a hormonal imbalance
Your body has numerous hormones that control your body’s systems. An imbalance in hormone levels may affect any of these systems.
However, a decline in sex hormone production is a normal part of the aging process. This includes testosterone in men and estrogen and progesterone in women.
Though these hormonal changes are normal, they cause a slew of symptoms that affects how you look and feel. Hormone pellet therapy might be right for you if you have a decline in sex hormone levels and have symptoms that affect your daily life.
Before we make any treatment recommendation, we conduct comprehensive hormone testing. Our testing not only confirms hormonal imbalance but also helps us identify what hormones are out of balance. We use this objective data to customize your hormone pellet therapy so you get the hormones your body needs.
For example, testosterone is a male sex hormone. However, women also produce testosterone. Like men, low testosterone levels in women can affect their quality of life. With hormone testing, we check all your hormone levels so we can provide the most effective treatment.
Wanting to feel better
Weight gain, lack of energy, and low sex drive are a normal part of the aging process, right? Wrong. These age-related symptoms you consider “normal” are caused by hormonal imbalance. In addition to the symptoms above, your hormonal changes may cause:
- Mood swings
- Hair loss
- Muscle loss
- Muscle and joint pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Low stamina
- Difficulty concentrating
- Problems with memory
- Vaginal dryness in women
- Erectile dysfunction in men
- Hot flashes
Not to mention the loss of your zest for life. There’s no need to simply suffer through these symptoms. If you want to feel better, then hormone pellet therapy may be right for you.
Preferring a natural hormone therapy
Many people feel uneasy about hormone replacement therapy because of potential health risks like blood clots, stroke, and certain types of cancer. Or, they may have concerns about side effects from traditional hormone replacement therapy, such as hormonal fluctuations. Hormone pellet therapy is a more natural form of hormone replacement therapy. Instead of synthetic hormones, hormone pellets contain bioidentical hormones, which are plant-based hormones modified to have the same structure and function as the hormones produced in your body.
In addition to being more natural, hormone pellet therapy provides a consistent dose of hormones to optimize levels. We place the rice-sized pellet under the skin above your buttocks. The pellet then slowly dissolves over time, so your hormone levels remain steady. We continuously monitor your symptoms and hormone levels and replace your pellet as needed.
