First… What Are Hormones?

The human body has uphill of one trillion cells that depend on a fragile balance of hormones to aid in a variety of roles. Think of hormones as chemical messengers in the body. When these messengers become damaged, the cellular function fails, and your body’s systems can no longer perform ideally. Many of the symptoms related to hormone imbalance are due to difficulties at the cellular level.

These difficulties can affect every function in your body, including the regulation of your sleep/wake cycle, managing your moods, and even modulation of body temperaturejust to name a couple. Your hormones sustain that everything in check. That is why if a single hormone falls out of balance, the whole system can collapse, and you begin to experience the typical symptoms of aging, such as low libido, hair loss, fatigue, insomnia, and depleted energy.

With support from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at Arkansas Anti-Aging in Little Rock, you can get an accurate assessment of your hormone levels. Using advanced testing techniquesand receive a custom-made treatment plan based on your lab values, symptoms, lifestyle, medical history, and how your life has changed directly since your symptoms began.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) vs. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

You may have heard some damaging press regarding conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This is because of human-made hormone substitutes, such as estradiol, methyl, progestin, and nandrolone gained in popularity, and then their adverse effects became apparent. Conventional hormone replacement therapy stems from the foundation of using synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones are factory-made patented hormones. Because these hormones are patented, treatment is similar for all patients and not modified to their specific needs. Unfavorable side effects include an increased risk of heart disease and breast cancer. Now, a much safer option exists.

On the opposite end of the spectrum is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy applies bioidentical hormones which are natural hormones originating from plant resources and are created to have the identical molecular structure as biological hormones made by the body. This identical structure maintains bioidentical hormones will join with the body’s receptors, introducing the matching practical sequence as endogenous hormones, awarding remarkable hormone treatment outcomes, and minimizing the risk of side effects.

Opting for a more biological hormone program such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (contrasted with a synthetic hormone replacement therapy) gives patients an enhanced overall bioidentical hormone experience minus unpleasant reactions and only mild side effects. Some of the vital advantages of using bioidentical hormones include:

What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?

While in pursuit of steady hormone levels, natural hormone levels can become unbalanced due to the aging process, contaminated exposures, or a health illness. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an everyday solution for replacing hormones that the body is no longer able to create on its own.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women who are living through perimenopause, menopause or post-menopause frequently experience a multitude of uncomfortable symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. During these different transitions, levels can vary significantly leading to high testosterone in women (as well as low testosterone in women!), progesterone deficits, estrogen dominance, and thyroid symptoms in women can manifest too. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help restructure natural hormone balance and women can expect some very encouraging and remarkable benefits such as:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

The symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men often become evident slowly and are typically labeled as signs of aging. The most widespread type of hormone deficiency is low testosterone in men. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can appear in the form of hair loss, low libido, weight gain, muscle loss, and fatigue. Signs of low testosterone in men begin to assemble around midlife, draining men of liveliness and weakening health. Men are predominantly influenced by drops in testosterone which are a result of the aging process, but men can also encounter similar symptoms due to fluctuations in thyroid or adrenal hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy bestows men with a chance to mend natural hormone levels and revel in health and quality of life benefits, including:

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Patients have stated considerable improvements in their health and quality of life succeeding bioidentical hormone replacement treatment. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy focuses on numerous conditions related to aging such as perimenopause, menopause, andropause, and the accompanying indications of hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and fatigue. Men and women surviving with various forms of hormone imbalance like insomnia, hypothyroidism, mood swings, and hair loss, profit mainly from an extensive treatment plan made by a hormone doctor specially trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy techniques.

Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy

The most impactful way to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is via pellet therapy. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy consists of natural hormone pellets inserted into the soft fatty tissue beneath the skin by way of a minimally invasive, brief in-office procedure. Bioidentical hormone pellets are approximately the size of a grain of rice and constructed with bioidentical testosterone or estrogen, along with a natural cholesterol binder. Hormone pellets are typically implanted just under the beltline in the upper buttocks. The pellets are created with a specific density and firmness, so they dissolve over a 3 to 4-month period, slowly. As the bioidentical hormone pellets dissipate, hormones are absorbed into the system through a steady movement, in a way that closely replicates the own body’s release of hormones.

Other bioidentical hormone techniques like hormone creams, gels, or pills, cannot compare to the ease and efficiency of hormone pellet therapy for management of menopause symptoms, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, and many other symptoms instigated by hormonal imbalance. Even though there are many intricacies in managing hormone therapy, pellet therapy is the cornerstone of Dr. Crisp’s Little Rock bioidentical hormone replacement therapy practice.

Increased hormone levels can help to:

Since 1938, bioidentical hormone pellets have been used as a convenient, and reliable form of hormone replacement. Pellets usually last 3-4 months in women; in men, 4-5 months.
