Hormone Pellet Therapy

consulting a doctor about hormone pellet therapy

The human body has more than 200 hormones. These are produced by the glands in our body and then sent into the bloodstream to the different parts of the body to do their specific functions. Hormones act as chemical messengers or an internal communication system between cells carrying out messages and functions throughout the entire body. They play an important role in almost everything such as digestion, growth, immune function, and mood and pain tolerance. When there is an imbalance of hormones happening inside your body, it can wreak havoc on your general health and well-being.

What causes the hormonal imbalance?

There is a hormone imbalance when there are too much or too little hormones in your bloodstream. Hormonal imbalance is a natural occurrence and everyone can experience it at certain points in their life.  For example, aging is a natural process that can cause hormonal imbalance. Women who are menopausal tend to produce lesser amounts of estrogen and progesterone. However, some people are at risk of having a hormonal imbalance, especially those people suffering from:

  • Chronic stress
  • Diabetes
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Poor diet
  • Obesity
  • Goiters
  • Anorexia

There are also cases in which hormonal imbalance is expected especially during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, menopausal stages and in men, puberty, aging and certain medical conditions such as prostate cancer. 

However, if you are living a healthy lifestyle, you have a lower risk of experiencing hormonal imbalance unless you are aging. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about this imbalance when you grow older because you can count on hormone pellet therapy. 

Hormone Pellet Therapy 

Hormone pellet therapy is a type of treatment that both women and men can benefit from. This therapy has become popular because of its effectiveness and numerous benefits. Hormone pellet therapy extracts hormones from natural plants. An implant will be placed just under your skin to replicate the body’s correct hormone levels. Most people prefer hormone pellet therapy compared to other treatments because they produce a constant flow of hormones which means there are no negative effects. 

How is hormone pellet therapy done?

The insertion of the pellet should be done by a professional inside a clinic. The attending doctor will apply local anesthesia before making a tiny cut in the upper hip area. The pellet, which is the size of a rice grain, is then inserted before taping the cut to seal it. 

What are the benefits of hormone pellet therapy?
