Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Real Health Medical offers a variety of bio-identical hormone therapies at our Roswell, Stockbridge and Cartersville locations. It’s no secret that any type of hormonal change in your body can dramatically impact your energy levels and so much more. As you may know, menopause is all about hormonal changes. So it makes sense that women who are going through or have gone through menopause should consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Unfortunately, HRT has a bad name because some hormone drugs increase your risk of getting breast cancer. The reason was simple – the hormones used were synthetic hormones (chemicals, not actual hormones) that worked against your body – not with it. But there are better and safer choices for hormone replacement therapy. They are called bio-identical hormones. These hormones are biologically identical to the hormones your body makes. So they are much safer, don’t cause cancer, and can restore your energy levels and body functions to where they should be.
There are many different ways to deliver bio-identical hormones to your body. These include creams, trokies (lozenges that dissolve in your mouth), injections, and pellets. While different people prefer different delivery systems, the most effective are injections and pellets. Hormone pellets are usually the most effective because they don’t require ongoing injections, which are hard to self-administer for some, painful, and easy to forget. But pellets, which are placed under your skin by your medical professional, are a slow-release hormone delivery system. They work remarkably well and can often turn someone from depressed to energetic in no time at all. One husband was so ecstatic about the changes they made in his wife, he said, “You gave me my wife back!”
But it’s not just women who go through hormonal changes. Men often find themselves needing hormones, particularly testosterone. That means that if your energy has taken a nose dive in recent months or years, it’s a good idea to consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. It could give you your life back.
