Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
What is hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that stabilizes your hormone levels when your body doesn't produce adequate amounts of what you need.
Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses artificial hormones that come from animal sources, which may negatively affect your body. At Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, the knowledgeable providers use bioidentical hormones sourced from yams (an all-natural source) instead.
What are the signs that I need hormone replacement therapy?
Both women and men can experience negative effects as they produce fewer hormones.
Hormone depletion in women
In women, hormone depletion can cause mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, forgetfulness, fatigue, and other unpleasant symptoms.
Hormone depletion in men
In men, hormone depletion can cause a loss of muscle mass, mood swings, hair loss, irritability, memory loss, fatigue, decreased sexual function, poor sleep, and other frustrating issues.
If you’ve noticed some changes in the way you look, feel, and function, don’t assume it’s just aging pains that you have to live with. Hormone replacement therapy can give you the same hormone levels that ovaries and testicles naturally produce at peak health.
How does a hormone assessment work?
At Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, the medical care providers take a blood sample and then perform a hormone analysis at the on-site lab. The lab services offer reliable results very quickly.
That allows your provider to assess your symptoms, consider your test results, and prescribe the optimal hormone replacement therapy plan for you right away.
How does hormone replacement therapy work?
Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, offers customized hormone replacement therapy using several methods. The most common hormone replacement option is Pellecome® bioidentical pellets. With this method, your provider inserts a customized prescription of tiny pellets under your skin. It takes only about 15 minutes in the office.
The pellets then mimic your body’s hormone distribution methods by releasing bioidentical hormones when you need them. Pellecome pellet therapy can start to work in as little as 7-10 days. You visit the office for additional treatments 3-4 times a year.
Depending on your needs, you may use other forms of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy instead, such as oral capsules or topical creams. Your provider may prescribe Pellecome and an oral or topical formula simultaneously for maximum hormone optimization.
Hormone replacement therapy can help men and women feel comfortable, energetic, and vital again. Book your hormone replacement therapy assessment through online scheduling or by calling the Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, office.
