Hormone Replacement Therapy Boca Raton
BRC4AM believes in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) as opposed to the more traditional approach of using synthetic hormones and their inherent risks. There are many ways to administer BHRT including the use of skin cremes or gels, swallowing or dissolving tablets under the tongue, and patches. The most effective method yielding the best results for most people is the use of implantable bioidentical hormone pellets. These tiny pellets, which are implanted under the skin, have the ability to deliver hormones to the body as needed for a period of 3-6 months.
Hormones pellets were first used in the US (and still are today) at The Medical College of Georgia. They have been used safely and effectively in Great Britain and other European countries for decades. Unfortunately chemically synthesized alternatives such as Premarin and Prempro were mass marketed by the pharmaceutical industry and thus became the standard in the US. Recent research has suggested that the risks of using these synthetic hormones are far greater than once believed. Many Gynecologists are beginning to recognize the role BHRT can play in helping women prevent and/or relieve the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, PMS, and others associated with the aging process.
(BHRT is also very effective for treating these same symptoms in men i.e. Andropause)
Hormone pellets are tiny, highly compressed “discs” or “cylinders” containing pure bioidentical hormone (the same hormones that are already present in the human body). They are placed under the skin with a very quick, simple, and painless procedure and will deliver hormone to the body as needed while slowly dissolving over time.
Clinical experience (both mine and others) has shown these hormone pellets to clearly be the most effective way to administer BHRT. We are able to achieve significantly higher blood levels with the use of significantly smaller amounts of hormone. In theory, once the hormone pellet is implanted in the tissue, the body will draw off hormone as it needs, yielding a scenario of“hormone on demand”. This is much more closely mimicking the body’s normal physiological patterns as opposed to other methods which give more of a pattern of hormone peaks and troughs or a “roller-coaster” effect. In addition the ability to attain consistently higher levels with better balance between the hormones likely yields increased preventative benefits such as bone building. Studies have shown that Fosomax and other pharmaceuticals can arrest or reverse bone loss by about 1-2% per year. Oral hormones have about the same rate of success. Transdermal (cremes and gels) have been found to potentially yield 3-4% reversal. Hormone pellets can yield up to 8-9% reversal in bone loss.
Women on BHRT generally feel and look better. Fatigue is eliminated, sleep is markedly improved, and libido is returned or improved. There are positive changes over time in the integrity and appearance of the hair, skin, and nails. Improvements in mood, anxiety levels, and general well being are noted. These are just some of the positive benefits attainable with the use of these amazing little pellets.
