Our Approach to Hormone Management: Hormonal Imbalance Test
You’ve probably heard the saying the only things certain in life are death and taxes, we have a few thoughts on this mindset, we’d like to add changing hormones to that list! Is it time for you to have a hormonal imbalance test?
As we age, we will encounter natural changes in our hormones, and some people will have severe symptoms while others barely notice.
That’s just one reason why we think a blanket approach isn’t the way to go when treating hormonal imbalance; everybody is different as are our needs, health goals, and concerns.
At EvexiPEL, we have committed ourselves to provide our patients with lasting solutions to their health concerns. One way we’re able to do this is through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Advanced Treatment Option
In the past, and even currently at certain clinics, hormone therapy can be overwhelming. There have been pills, patches, creams, and many other option, however, none of these offered a personalized approach to patients’ needs. and merely treated symptoms rather than provided relief.
At EvexiPEL, we use an advanced treatment option that employs BHRT through pellets. As a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies, subcutaneous BHRT with pellets uses natural, plant-based extracts compatible with your body’s biological makeup.
Bio-identical hormones are replicas of hormones your body already produces, while synthetic hormones are not molecularly identical. Here are some fast facts to give you an idea of what to expect:
- Bio-identical hormones are derived from plants. (This gives you a natural, plant-based solution.)
- The hormone pellets dosage you are given is determined mainly by your blood test results. It also depends on your individual needs.
- Improvements can be seen within the first two weeks, but eight weeks is necessary to feel the full effects.
Did you know that mass-produced, synthetic hormones are composed of either horse urine or artificially formulated (synthetic) hormones in a lab?
It should go without saying these are not items you want in your body. Manufacturers deliberately create synthetic hormones that are slightly different than natural human hormones to patent those formulations.
While this all sounds scary and overwhelming, you can relax knowing that BHRT has been around for ages. In fact, health practitioners have performed BHRT, plant-based pellet implants since the early 1900s.
Recently, there has been an increase in the number of practitioners offering pellet therapy. This was due to studies revealing natural hormones may be a safer, more effective alternative to synthetic hormone treatments. Especially since synthetic hormone treatments have been widely used in the last few decades.
