HORMONES; TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE, TOO BAD
When your hormones aren’t happy, life can get crappy. Unexplained weight gain? Could be hormones. Feeling anxious, depressed, just generally off? Could be hormones. Workout stamina gone south? Those hormones again. Can’t sleep. Too pooped to participate in anything. (Including sex—meh.) More than a good chance your hormones need a reset.
It’s time to find out all you can about hormone pellet therapy
BIO-IDENTICAL IS INFINITELY BETTER
There are two types of hormones that can be used in hormone replacement therapy; bio-identical, and synthetic. Bio-identical hormones are exactly that—identical. They offer an exact match for your body’s natural hormones and are released in the same natural way. That makes them safer, more effective and uniquely compounded to your individual needs. Synthetic hormones are manufactured or synthesized in a lab. Yep, lab. As in test tubes or whatever else you can imagine. Because they don’t act the same as your natural hormones, the body sees them as foreign and this can potentially lead to serious health issues including blood clots, heart attacks, strokes, even links to higher risk of certain cancers.
That’s why you only want bio-identical pellet therapy,
LOW T. YOU NEVER EVEN SAW IT COMING
Pellet therapy is often used to replace low testosterone levels (Low T). According to the American Urological Association, about 2 out of 10 men older than 60 years have low testosterone. That increases slightly to 3 out of 10 men in their 70s and 80s. But hold on…the testosterone that raged in your body in puberty, begins to dip after age 30 or so. Even a young, built body can have their testosterone levels take a downward turn. And the symptoms of Low T can drive men as crazy as menopausal women:
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Loss of muscle mass and strength (no matter how much you bench)
- Sleep apnea
- Reduced bone density (not just for gals, guys…)
- Less red blood cell production
- Less energy
- Depression and mood changes
- Hair loss
- Memory loss
- Smaller testicles
- Increased breast size. (Oh no, the dreaded man boobs…)
- Hot flashes (Could it get any worse?)
Glad you asked. Because yes, there’s the whole sex thing. Low T can louse up your libido big time. It can absolutely reduce your ability to have satisfying sex. It can make it difficult to get or maintain erections. it can also reduce levels of semen and sperm production. When your libido lags, your self-esteem isn’t far behind.
Not to worry, however, because pellet therapy can take it all on.
TESTOSTERONE, ESTROGEN…” OH BOY” …NO, MAKE THAT “OH WOMEN”
Ladies, if you’d stop your jump squats for a moment, you probably want to hear this. If you thought testosterone was only important in men, you’d be mistaken. Testosterone is produced in the ovaries and adrenal gland. It’s one of several androgens (male sex hormones) in females. A woman with low testosterone (Low T) does not contain enough to help produce new blood cells or boost levels of other reproductive hormones.
Testosterone pellet therapy can not only enhance your sex drive, but also improve your muscle strength, bone density, mood…a lot of what it can do for men.
Then there is estrogen, a life-long, non-stop onslaught of fluctuations and imbalances. PMS, painful periods, mood swings, cravings, weight gain, acne…raging hormones can all happen before you’re even old enough for high school. And when those symptoms start to wane, you have to try and ward off the symptoms of menopause and peri-menopause. Osteoporosis, thinning hair, drier skin, memory loss, vaginal dryness, depression, breast pain and of course the dreaded hot flashes and night sweats that find you standing in front of an open fridge trying to find relief.
Pellet therapy is a much more reliable way to find real relief.
PLAY IT SAFE
Let’s start with this; are pellets new? Untested? Unproven? No way. Pellet therapy has been around since the 1930’s. So we’re not talking some newfangled thing here Pellets, which are FDA compounded bio-identical testosterone or estrogen, for example, are about the size of a small grain of rice and are easily and painlessly inserted under the skin on an outpatient basis. As the body begins to slowly metabolize the pellets, the hormones are steadily absorbed into your system in way that most closely mimics your own body’s release of hormones. Pellets will even temporarily release more hormone when you need it, during times of stress or exercise, for example. Think of it as hormones on demand. It gets better. Pellets bypass the liver and don’t negatively impact clotting factors, blood pressure, glucose, or liver functions the way synthetic hormones do. And pellet therapy doesn’t increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer. Which isn’t the case for synthetic hormones.
DON’T JUST PUT A PATCH ON THE PROBLEM
Many people take a sort of DIY approach to hormone replacement. Let’s start with those online or over-the-counter T-boosters. Forget the labels, ignore the ads. They can claim anything they want. Big marketing. Little proof they do anything to up testosterone levels.. Then there are the hormone patches, nasal creams, powders, gels applied to arms, armpits, and abdomen or inside of the thigh. Ick. Yuck. And really iffy when it comes to levels of absorption. Plus, they are all pre-manufactured, pre-dosed, and pre-designed to deliver the same amount to everyone. Regardless of their individual hormone levels. With pellets can you be confident that your body is getting the exact amount of hormones it needs. Which eliminates an up and down roller coaster effect that comes with other forms of hormone delivery.
