What Causes Hormone Imbalance?
Estrogen and progesterone are the primary hormones that regulate a woman’s cycle. Over time, the intensity of these hormones changes, causing various symptoms. Not only do these changes cause physical reactions, but they can also impact your psychological health by inducing feelings of anxiety or depression. Hormonal balance isn’t a luxury — it’s imperative for your health and wellness.
How to Treat Hormone Imbalance
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
BHRT, or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, combines estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone to regulate hormone levels. These therapies are bioidentical, meaning they are identical to natural hormones at a molecular level. The goal is to reduce symptoms of menopause and restore natural hormone levels. Our nurse practitioner at our Franklin Tennessee office can discuss BHRT benefits with you and answer questions about hormone therapy options.
Estrogen therapy is used during menopause when estrogen levels are low. This therapy can protect against heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and osteoporosis. It can also improve skin, hair, sleep, mood, concentration, and muscle tissue. Our estrogen therapy is personalized to your needs and can reduce joint pain.
Progesterone therapy works with estrogen therapy to improve overall well-being and reduce risks of breast cancer, depression, heart disease, and osteoporosis. It can help lower cholesterol levels, improve sleep, and support healthy weight.
Testosterone therapy can benefit women with hormonal imbalances and fluctuations. Women require testosterone for bone and muscle growth, healthy weight, and sex drive. Our nurse practitioner will evaluate your hormone levels, including testosterone, to determine if testosterone replacement therapy is beneficial. Women report benefits including increased energy, improved mental health, stronger sex drive, healthier weight, and increased bone and muscle strength.
Pellet therapy is a unique system of hormone delivery that may be the best fit for some women. This method involves the insertion of 2-3 small pellets, each about the size of a grain of rice, beneath the skin and into the fatty tissue of the hip. These pellets contain either testosterone or estradiol and deliver a pure hormone dose directly into the bloodstream throughout the day and night.
The simple in-office procedure takes only a few minutes, starting with numbing of the skin, followed by one tiny incision that requires only a small steri strip, with no stitches. The subcutaneous pellets act as a reservoir of hormones, allowing for a consistent dose and controlled release of hormones.
Women who choose pellet therapy typically find that the pellets control symptoms for 3-5 months and side effects are less likely compared to oral or injectable hormones. Furthermore, there is less incidence of issues related to poor absorption, sometimes problematic with hormone creams, gels, or patches. If you're considering hormone therapy, consult with Renew Health & Wellness to determine whether pellet therapy is the right option for you.
