Our bodies, male and female, require a specific balance between 3 primary hormones: testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. This balance can be interrupted by a wide variety of factors and demographics including age, stress level, diet, metabolic range, and physical activity.
When our testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone levels begin to deviate from our optimum levels, we begin to exhibit symptoms such as extreme fatigue, libido, mood swings, sleeping trouble, chronic headaches, and even inexplicable fluctuations in weight. Modern Concepts provides Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to address these symptoms at their source.
In today's world, we have to be incredibly aware of what we put in our body. Whether it's the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, or the medications we take for other health concerns, it has become increasingly difficult to avoid exposing ourselves to synthetic substances. Using the Bio-Identical approach to Hormone Therapy, Modern Concepts avoids synthetic hormones and uses a more patient-friendly alternative.
The term "bio-identical" refers to naturally existing versions of testosterone and estrogen that share 98% of their structure with the hormones humans produce naturally. Ultimately, this leads to a much smoother and less-invasive process which provides a better overall experience for our patients.
Another benefit of the Bio-Identical approach is in the longevity and gradual process of the therapy. Not only are synthetic hormones more invasive and potentially harmful, but they also leave the patient vulnerable to "crashes" and a rapid return of symptoms. One day you're on top of the world, the next all of your symptoms have returned with out a warning.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy gives your body a reserve of testosterone and estrogen to gradually pull from over the course of 8-12 weeks. Males typically require pellet inserts every 6-8 weeks while females typically require inserts every 10-12 weeks. The patient-friendly hormones are sent to our practice in the form of "pellets" which are inserted in to the glute using a very safe a non-invasive procedure.
After the procedure, it typically takes 7-10 days for the patient to experience a noticeable change in mood, energy levels, sex drive, and ability to sleep. Once your body has metabolized the pellets over the course of 8-12 weeks, the original symptoms will return in a very safe and gradual manner which means: it's time for another insert!
