At Millennium Wellness, we are committed to providing relief for men and women suffering from symptoms of hormone deficiency. Through the use of our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy, we are able to enhance vitality, restore more youthful functioning, and improve the quality of life in our patients.
Hormones control your blood pressure, build up bone, contribute to healthy vessels and tissue, lubricate joints, and maintain muscle tone. They govern growth, making the body produce energy and heat. Hormones maintain the correct level of sugar in the blood and tissues. They put you to sleep at night and wake you up in the morning.
A common misconception regarding hormones is that testosterone is an exclusively male hormone, while Estrogen is only found in females. This is untrue. Testosterone, for instance, is vital to the health and well-being of both men AND women. Testosterone contributes to muscle mass, strength, and endurance, decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, enhancement of the sense of well-being, and psychological health. Testosterone also protects against cardiovascular disease and reduces cholesterol. Likewise, Estrogen is a hormone produced in both men AND women. It's vital that the prescribed Estrogen is a bio-identical estrogen. This hormone protects against vaginal atrophy, urinary incontinence, and alleviates symptoms of menopause like hot flushes and night sweats. Estrogen is even believed to protect against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, and memory disorders.
As we age, important hormone levels drop. By age 35, or earlier, both men and women may begin to experience the effects of declining hormone levels, and may have some or all of the symptoms listed below:
Fatigue • Loss of Energy • Depression • Anxiety • Mood Swings • Difficulty Sleeping • Loss of Memory • Mental Fog • Osteoporosis • New Headaches • Hot Flushes • Night Sweats • Aching Joints • Bladder Problems • Dry Skin • Vaginal Dryness • Palpitations • Low Libido • Loss of Interest in Sex
WHY PELLET THERAPY?
Creams, patches, and pills simply do not provide the safe and optimal hormone levels that pellet therapy does. Trans-dermal delivery, pills, and other methods of hormone replacement vary in absorption, effect and tend to result in unhealthy and unpleasant highs and lows. And, these methods don't provide the long-lasting relief that pellets do.
Of all the hormone replacement treatments available, Pellet Therapy is by far the superior method. Pellets are comprised of molecularly-identical hormones derived from vegetable products and are painlessly inserted in minutes into fatty tissue on the hip. Then, the pellets release hormones directly into the bloodstream, avoiding the liver and the first pass effect. Because they are time-released, pellets provide continuous bioavailability of the hormones - the same way the body used to release them.
Since these hormones are a perfect molecular match to your body's own hormones, Pellet Therapy provides relief from symptoms safely, conveniently, reliably, and quickly. While dosage will vary from person to person based upon your individual symptoms and hormone levels, pellets need to be inserted only every 5-6 months for men and every 2-3 months for women.
