Hormone Pellet Therapy (BHRT)

What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment created to address hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance occurs when one or more of the body’s key hormones is deficient or otherwise not at its optimal production level. This issue can occur in men and women.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Tension and irritability
  • Lack of sleep
  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Lack of focus
  • Brain fog
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines and severe headaches
  • Bladder symptoms
  • Decreased sex drive and performance

Studies have shown hormonal imbalance also affects bone health, breast health, brain health, heart health and other critical systems in the body. Hormonal imbalance will display itself in both tangible and intangible symptoms; some you may notice immediately, and others mask themselves and occur behind the scenes and can impact your quality of life as you age.

About one in seven women over age 50 has osteoporosis, and about one half of all women over age 50 can be expected to suffer an osteoporosis-related fracture during their lifetime. Studies have shown hormone imbalance in women is also a major contributor to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia; women are eight times more likely to suffer from these serious health problems.
