Are you ready to rebuild normal hormonal levels and ease hormonal imbalance symptoms? If so, contact Greenville Rejuvenation. Dr. Kenneth Orbeck is a well-known hormone doctor focusing on integrative medicine and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Find out if your hormone symptoms are due to high testosterone or low testosterone levels, progesterone deficits, or estrogen variations.
If you are surviving with symptoms of aging or more identified conditions such as menopause, thyroid disorder, perimenopause, andropause, or adrenal fatigue, Dr. Orbeck offers a hormone treatment plan designed exclusively for you.
The human body contains upwards of one trillion cells that rely on a delicate balance of hormones to help carry out a variety of functions. Think of hormones as chemical messengers. When these messengers become impaired, cellular function fails, and your body’s systems can no longer perform optimally. Many of the symptoms associated with hormone imbalance are due to complications at the cellular level.
These complications can affect every function in your body, including the regulation of your sleep/wake cycle, management of your moods, and even modulation of your body temperature—just to name a few. Your hormones keep everything in check. That’s why if even one hormone falls out of balance, the whole system can crumble and you begin to experience the classic symptoms of aging, such as low libido, hair loss, fatigue, sleepless nights, and low energy.
With the help of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy from Greenville Rejuvenation, you can get an accurate assessment of your hormone levels—using advanced testing techniques—and receive a tailored treatment plan based on your lab values, symptoms, medical history, lifestyle, and how your life has changed personally since your symptoms began.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) stems from the science of using synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones, like methyl, progestin, estradiol, and nandrolone, are factory-made, chemically-based patented hormones. Because these hormones are patented, treatment is comparable for all patients and not modified to their specific needs. Additionally, synthetic hormones have been linked to an increased danger of developing breast cancer and heart disease.
On the other end of the spectrum is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones which are natural hormones derived from plant resources and are designed to have the identical molecular structure as biological hormones produced by the body. The identical structure maintains bioidentical hormones will mend together with the body’s receptors, introducing the same practical sequence as endogenous hormones, presenting remarkable hormone treatment outcomes, and minimizing the risk of side effects.
Opting for a more biological hormone regimen such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (compared to a synthetic hormone replacement therapy) presents patients with an enhanced overall bioidentical hormone experience without unpleasant reactions and only mild side effects. Some of the key advantages of using bioidentical hormones include:
While in pursuit of stable hormone levels, natural hormone levels can become unstable due to the aging process, toxic exposures, or a health illness. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a wise solution for replacing hormones that the body is no longer able to generate on its own.
Women who are living or have lived through perimenopause, menopause or post-menopause frequently experience a myriad of uncomfortable symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. Throughout these different transitions, levels can vary substantially leading to high testosterone in women (as well as low testosterone in women!), estrogen dominance, progesterone deficits, and thyroid symptoms in women can manifest too. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can restructure natural hormone balance and women can expect some very positive and remarkable benefits such as:
The symptoms of hormone imbalance in men often become apparent slowly and are typically labeled as signs of aging. The most prevalent type of hormone deficiency is low testosterone in men. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can surface in the form of hair loss, low libido, muscle loss, and fatigue. Signs of low testosterone in men begin to compile around midlife, draining men of liveliness and impairing health. Men are predominantly affected by drops in testosterone which are a consequence of the aging process, but men can also experience similar symptoms due to fluctuations in adrenal or thyroid hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy bestows men with an opportunity to mend natural hormone levels and enjoy health and quality of life benefits, including:
Patients have reported considerable improvements in their health and quality of life following bioidentical hormone replacement treatment. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy focuses on a number of particular circumstances related to aging such as perimenopause, menopause, andropause, and the complementing indications of hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and fatigue. Men and women coping with various forms of hormone imbalance like insomnia, hypothyroidism, mood swings, and hair loss, benefit mainly from an extensive treatment plan created by a hormone doctor specially trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy procedures.
The most constructive way to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is via pellet therapy. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy involves insertion of natural hormone pellets into the soft fatty tissue beneath the skin through a minimally invasive, brief in-office procedure. Bioidentical hormone pellets are roughly the size of a grain of rice and constructed with bioidentical testosterone or estrogen, and a natural cholesterol binder. Hormone pellets are classically implanted just under the beltline in the upper buttocks. The pellets are produced with a specific density and firmness, so they dissolve over a 3 to 4-month timeframe, slowly. As the bioidentical hormone pellets dissolve, hormones are absorbed into the system through a steady wave, in a way that closely imitates the own body’s release of hormones.
Other bioidentical hormone methods like hormone creams, gels, or pills, cannot compare to the efficiency of hormone pellet therapy for management of menopause symptoms, weight gain, low libido, fatigue, and many other symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance. Even though there are many complexities in managing hormone therapy, pellet therapy is the cornerstone of Dr. Orbeck’s Greenville bioidentical hormone replacement therapy practice.
Optimal hormone levels can help to:
Since 1938, testosterone pellets have been used as a convenient, and reliable form of hormone replacement. Pellets in women usually last 3-4 months; in men, 4-5 months.
