The pellet method is a form of BHRT that involves a small pellet made of crystallized hormones being inserted subcutaneously into the fatty part of your buttocks. The pellet delivers a constant and steady release of hormones and can last up to three months before needing replacement! The pellet insertion takes less than an hour and requires no upkeep until replacement. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using the pellet method has changed the manner in which we treat hormone imbalance in women. In the past, the symptoms most women experienced were chalked up to aging or even worse just brushed off as part of life, however, we know better! You no longer need to silently suffer through your symptoms of hormone imbalance. Dr. Engsberg conducts a comprehensive medical evaluation to find the root cause of symptoms. Treating your hormone imbalance through pellet therapy and supplements is an investment in your well-being. Natural hormone replacement therapy has helped improve not only the quality of our lives but also how long we live them. Why wait when the remedy is as simple as replacing missing hormones?
Estrogen Replacement for Women
Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. When this hormone is out of balance patients are at an increased risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. The longer a woman is without the protection of her own estrogen, the greater the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.
There are estrogen receptors in a variety of organs throughout the body and brain. That’s why hormonal imbalance produces different symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, mood and cognitive decline. On the other hand, when estrogen levels rise as they do in the first week of menses, their overall effect is to increase the amount of serotonin available in the spaces between the brain’s nerve cells. That improves mood. Within the brain, estrogen may, in fact, act as a natural antidepressant and mood stabilizer. It is therefore essential that a woman suffering from premature ovary failure or surgical menopause receive treatment from an HRT physician who understands the many ramifications of the disease and is willing and able to meet her endocrine and emotional needs.
Testosterone Replacement for Women
Testosterone hormone therapy gives a woman her mental clarity, libido and muscle tone and mass. When this hormone is at low levels, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain, and poor muscle growth even with regular exercise.
The effect of hormone deficiency on the brain, muscle, bone, heart, and metabolism can be significant without hormone replacement therapy for women and dangerous to long-term health. The brain needs normal amounts of testosterone in balance with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance. When lacking in these hormones, a woman will experience emotional instability that often results in increased anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, anger, sadness, and depression.
The musculoskeletal system is also adversely affected by the loss of testosterone. By not having bio-identical hormone therapy the deficiency or imbalance of testosterone can lead to muscle atrophy, osteopenia, osteoporosis and pain in the muscles and joints.
