Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Hormonal Imbalance
Often, these symptoms are due to a loss of hormones or a hormonal imbalance. After all, your hormones control most of your body functions. So, when they’re out of balance, it can have a negative effect on your health and well-being.
One way to alleviate these symptoms and regain your youthful vim and vigor is through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are made by the human body. This is necessary for the replacement hormone to replicate the function of the hormone your body naturally produces.
Each bioidentical hormone prescription is based on your individual symptoms, hormone levels, and diagnostic results, which makes BHRT safer and more effective compared to synthetic hormones. In fact, the precise dosing for each patient is determined only after consultation and the evaluation of laboratory blood tests.
MAXiM-affiliated doctors prescribe bioidentical hormones in the form of extremely small, time-released pellets. These pellets are painlessly inserted into the fatty tissue under the skin in your upper buttocks through a small incision that is closed with steri-strip tape. The procedure is so simple that after insertion, you are free to go about your daily routine.
Pellets provide a steady supply of hormones your body recognizes as its own over a period of months. This method has not only been proven to be more effective, but it also reduces the risk of negative side effects.
