Bio-identical hormone pellets are a safe and effective way to replace sex hormones in women as well as men. Bio-identical means that the hormones that are reproduced are the same as the ones already in our bodies. These compounded hormones bind to hormone receptors in the same manner as our own hormones.
Up until the onset of menopause, our bodies make the adequate amount of hormones. Once menopause comes into play, you might find yourself with a lower sex drive, cloudy memory, unexplained weight gain and a host of other conditions you would rather not experience. These symptoms are not just seen in post-menopausal women, increasingly we are seeing younger women women being prescribed hormones. There are several reasons for this. For example, long-term oral contraceptive use sometimes causes menses to disappear.
The biggest benefits derived from hormone therapy is the disappearance of the negative conditions listed above. In addition to a normal sex drive, women will see their bodies resort to normal function. Hormone therapy is also a benefit to your heart. Estrogen therapy has been linked to a decrease in both heart disease as well as breast cancer.
However, many women will rejoice in the disappearance of hot flashes and night sweats. Basically, low levels of estrogen, in addition to the hot flashes, contributes to raging mood swings. Hormone therapy balances this out and sets your mood back to normal. A benefit enjoyed not only by you, but by those close to you as well.
