If you’re having a hormonal imbalance, you’re out of balance. Hormonal imbalances can negatively impact your mental, emotional, and physical health. We can help you if you are lacking energy, mental clarity, or emotional stability. At Radiant Reflection in Hattiesburg, MS, we provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help you gain control over your hormones through the HTCA Pellet Program.
What Is BHRT?
You can achieve balance in every aspect of your life with BHRT, which is a safe and effective way to balance your hormones. During the aging process, hormone levels decrease. Every system in the body is affected by hormonal imbalances. The goal of bioidentical hormone therapy is to restore balance to the body, rejuvenate your whole well-being, and improve every area of your life, including your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
Growing older is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be painful. We want to help you thrive no matter what age you are, and we can do that by restoring hormonal balance.
How Does It Work?
During treatment, we take time to evaluate your hormones, your lifestyle, and your well-being. Various symptoms and lifestyles require different treatment plans, which is why we focus on these factors during treatment. Keeping you focused on the things that matter to you is our goal. It is essential to have balanced hormones to ensure symptom-free living and to be the best version of yourself.
Your hormone imbalance needs to be addressed holistically. This is accomplished by listening to your concerns, assessing your specific symptoms, and evaluating your overall well-being. Based on your blood test results, symptoms, and lifestyle, we’ll develop the right treatment plan for you. But that’s not all. Your progress will be evaluated regularly, and we will be there for you every step of the way.
Hormonal imbalances go much deeper than your typical bodily ailment. In comparison to sinus infections, which can be treated with antibiotics and a doctor’s appointment, hormonal imbalances are much more complex and require personalized attention. Your treatment plan will be evaluated regularly to make sure you are getting the best results possible.
Bioidentical Hormones vs. Synthetic Hormones
Maybe you’re wondering what the difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones is, and why it matters. Hormones that are bioidentical to those produced by the body are identical to those produced by the body naturally. Synthetic hormones are less effective and cannot be adjusted to meet the needs of every individual patient. Because BHRT can be administered safely and tailored to individual needs, it produces better results.
What Is the HTCA Pellet Program?
the HTCA Pellet Program allows both men and women to replace the natural hormones they lose as they age. Estradiol or testosterone are contained within the pellets or fused into solid cylinders. In women, they deliver consistent levels of hormones for 3-5 months, while in men, they deliver consistent levels of hormones for 4-6 months.
The capsules dissolve inside the body on their own and are re-implanted in a time frame unique to each patient, depending on how quickly they metabolize the hormones. Other methods of delivery are prone to erratic hormone levels, but with pellets, hormone levels remain stable for a longer period of time.
The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
1. A Very Quick Process
Subcutaneous injections of BHRT pellets are performed either in the buttock or hip area. The pellets are bio-identical hormones, which means they match the hormones your body produces, and they will dissolve into the body over time.
The hormones they replace become available to you as they dissolve. It only takes a moment to insert the pellet, and then you have months of steady hormone delivery.
2. A Reliable Method of Delivery
Patches, creams, and pills are less than reliable. What if you get just a bit too much cream? What if you forget to take your pill? What if you don’t change the patch on time, or what if your spouse or a child touches the patch or area where you applied the cream and gets a dose they don’t need? All these methods also deliver inconsistent hormone levels.
Even injections are less preferable than pellets. You have to come in for injections much more often, and patients often experience a sudden increase in hormones right after the injection followed by a gradual declining quality of life as the time for the next injection draws near. With pellets, you get a consistent, reliable dose constantly. Once your personal treatment plan is established, you can enjoy even feelings and avoid the swings that can come with other delivery methods.
3. Long Lasting
Pellet therapy is very long-lasting compared to other methods of hormone replacement. There are large amounts of hormones stored within the pellets, and these are designed to slowly release after an extended period of time. Patients typically benefit from the treatment for months at a time.
4. Get Your Life Back
You’ll feel like you’ll be given back all the energy and vitality you’ve been missing since your youth with this treatment. There will be no need to take multiple naps throughout the day, come home from work drained, or go to sleep early anymore. Running after your kids in the backyard or exploring the great outdoors be just as enjoyable as when you were younger.
Mental clarity, physical strength, and sex drive will all improve. Getting older does not mean getting weaker and slower. In as little as two to three days, you should feel like your normal self following pellet hormone replacement.
Who Is BHRT Right For?
For men and women dealing with hormonal imbalances, BHRT is an effective solution. Candidates include women who have experienced hormonal imbalances as a result of hormonal fluctuations postpartum, women going through menopause, and men who have noticed a decline in their hormone levels due to age, genetics, or illness.
Having your hormones balanced starts with a consultation. We will take a look at your medical history, discuss your concerns, and make sure any questions you may have about the process are answered. From there, you can expect to feel better and better with the HTCA Pellet Program! For more, and to take our wellness survey, contact us today.
