In order for hormone replacement therapy to be efficient, it is important to administer a consistent dose of hormones to the patient. Doing so allows hormonal levels to be regulated at a steady pace. Pellet therapy achieves this by gradually releasing bio-identical hormones into the body. Cool Springs MD Chattanooga is a leading provider of pellet therapy in Chattanooga and the surrounding area of Tennessee, including the Cleveland area.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Hormone imbalance in both men and women may be caused by a variety of factors, such as natural changes associated with aging, injury or illness. An imbalance of hormones does more to the body than cause mood swings. Some of the more severe effects include reduction of mental focus, loss of bone mass and a depletion of muscle strength. Patients suffering from hormone imbalance may also experience a reduced sex drive. Taking advantage of bio-identical hormone replacement therapies in order to improve deficient hormone levels can help men and women to feel healthier and younger.
To help get hormones back in balance, pellet therapy is an effective option for treatment. Pellet therapy is a form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. This type of therapy replenishes hormones in the human body with natural ones derived from plants. Using modern testing techniques, it is possible to customize these hormones in order to give the patient individualized care. Customization allows pellet therapy to be highly effective in the treatment of hormone deficiencies and imbalances.
How Does Pellet Therapy Work?
Pellet therapy involves placing specially made pellets under the patient’s skin, usually in the buttock region. The insertion process is fast and virtually painless, usually performed in less than 10 minutes. The small size of the pellets makes them almost unnoticeable. This therapy has been customized to the individual and dissolve slowly over a period of three to six months to provide the patient a steady supply of hormones. Patients start to see positive results within a few weeks as the dissolving pellets copy the natural hormone gland functions.
Benefits of Pellet Therapy
Pellet therapy offers the same benefits as traditional hormone replacement therapy, such as:
- Relief from mood swings
- Improved concentration
- Decreased loss of muscle mass
- Less fatigue
- Reduced risk of osteoporosis
- Increase in libido
Pellet therapy, like other bio-identical hormone replacement therapies, replenishes the body with natural hormones that can be lost due to the aging process, illness, injury or surgery. The hormones allow the body to operate once again at peak performance and help men and women to live a healthier and fuller life. Thanks to the slow release of hormones, treatment with pellet therapy is only necessary three to four times a year, unlike traditional hormone replacement therapies that require frequent trips to the clinic. The gradual release of hormones from the tiny pellets mimics the body’s natural release of hormones and provides the patient with a continuous feeling of balance. With an increase in energy and sex drive, patients once again enjoy and active, fulfilling lifestyle.
For patients who don’t wish to take medication each day, pellet therapy provides an easier way to replenish hormones over traditional hormone replacement delivery methods. The pellets are small in size and last for several months before needing to be replaced. Patients on pellet therapy experience:
- Better bone density to prevent osteoporosis
- Strengthened cartilage that helps to improve joint movements
- An increase in muscle mass helping to burn calories more efficiently
- An increase in libido
- Improvement in the strength of both muscles and tendons
- Relief from mood swings
One of the most rewarding benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapies, including pellet therapy, is the youthful feelings and increased energy levels they experience. Patients tend to exercise more and have more motivation to eat a healthier diet. These changes to daily life lead to an increase in both mental clarity and physical health. Pellet therapy allows patients to take their lives back without the inconvenience of remembering the next clinic appointment for injections.
