“It is not selfish to put myself first, and it is not selfish to take care of myself.”

- Robin Mcgraw on Hormone replacement therapy

Hormones work as our bodies chemical messengers, acting as guides to trigger different senses and send cells to work. They are essential aides in our body’s growth, development and reproduction.  Think of the hormone as a key, floating around until it finds where it fits. Once it finds its fit, it begins to work! They can help with many things, from regulating calcium, to maintaining bone mass. If you are experiencing mood swings, hot flashes, headaches, tiredness and lack of energy, this can help you!  Help take control of your emotional, physical and mental well being. A deficiency can lead to many health issues including:

  • Obesity
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dementia/Memory Loss
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Prostate disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Addison’s Disease
  • Low libido
  • Uterine & Breast Cancer

The hormone replacement pellet can be a great option for women and for men.

Villa Health Center’s medical care is personalized to you and your body! We understand that what will get you to where you need to be, may be different for the next person.  

Bioidentical vs. Synthetic

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the practical choice. Synthetic hormones are not identically matched to those made by the body, making them less effective and more likely to create adverse side effects than the bioidentical hormone pellets created by companies like BioTE Medical. This approach to hormone therapy has fewer and less severe side effects than synthetic hormone therapy. 

So How Do I Get Started ??

The process is simple !

  • Step One
    • Meet with a provider to see if you are eligible.
    • Have a blood panel taken so your hormone levels can be tested.
  • Step Two
    • Schedule your insertion!
    • The insertion only takes a few minutes!
    • You will be numbed around the area of insertion, a small insertion will be made followed by pellet insertion and bandage coverage.
  • Step Three
    • The pellet will be dissolved and contents will be absorbed. 

 The pellet will induce hormones into your bloodstream 24 hours a day. What’s even better, is this pellet will only need to be inserted 2-5 times a year, unlike hormone shots which are needed 52-156 times per year, and hormone  creams that rack up to over 730 applications. These are natural, bioidentical hormones, which means your body recognizes them, they are not a synthetic, man made chemical entering your body as a foreign object. This ensures better and safer metabolism of the hormones. 

 

Each experience is different for every patient, but the benefits of hormone replacement therapy are huge. Patients began to feel increased energy, better moods, memory, restored libido and an overall sense of feeling younger, healthier and happier.
