Hormone therapy is the treatment of symptoms or disease with synthetic or naturally-derived hormones. When the body produces too little of a particular hormone, hormone replacement therapy is necessary to replenish stores and maintain natural production levels.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is the natural option for hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormones are derived from natural sources and designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally by the human body.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are an exact structural match to your own hormones. This feature allows the supplemented hormones to fit perfectly into your body’s hormone receptors thereby reducing possible side effects and increasing the effectiveness of the treatment. Efficacy and outcomes are further improved when hormone pellet therapy is the method of delivery.
We use EvexiPEL® pellets as our perferred method of hormone replacement therapy. Hormone pellet therapy is the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy among both patients and providers because of its convenience and efficacy. When compared to other delivery methods, natural hormone pellet therapy offers numerous benefits including:
In addition to hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Dalton can make diet, exercise, and medication recommendations to support your overall health through menopause.
The onset of menopause coincides with the age range at which some serious chronic health conditions become common. The incidence of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and dementia all rise during this stage of life.
Hormone replacement therapy for menopause may provide a protective effect as women enter this important transition. As researchers continue to explore the connection between hormones and the chronic health conditions associated with aging, women must be proactive to minimize risk factors and maximize quality of life.
Many of the symptoms that affect women with hormonal imbalance are related to drops in estrogen. Low estrogen levels in women can contribute to low libido, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.
Estrogen replacement therapy is an effective treatment for estrogen imbalance. In many cases, bio-identical estrogen therapy paired with bio-identical progesterone and bio-identical testosterone supports complete symptom relief and helps reduce risk of disease.
A 2016 study found that estrogen hormone therapy effectively increased libido in postmenopausal women. When low-dose estrogen therapy was paired with testosterone therapy, sexual desire was further enhanced.
EvexiPEL estradiol pellet therapy is considered the superior choice in estrogen pellet therapy. The bio-identical hormones that comprise each pellet are compounded by expert pharmacists at an FDA-registered 503B outsourcing facility. The exact amount of estradiol needed is sourced from plants, like yams, cactus, or soy, and formed into pellets by an expert pharmacist.
Testosterone therapy is effective for symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women. Though commonly believed to be the “male hormone,” testosterone is extremely important to female health and well-being.
Testosterone plays a role in healthy weight management, brain function, cardiovascular health, as well as sexual function and desire. Low levels of testosterone in women or men can lead to undesirable symptoms making even simple daily tasks seem unbearable. Low testosterone can cause you to feel sluggish and tired all the time, as well as impact your focus, memory, muscle definition and libido.
Testosterone hormone therapy effectively treats low testosterone in men and women. The most effective treatment options use EvexiPEL bio-identical hormone pellets.
EvexiPEL testosterone pellet therapy has a reputation for being the superior choice in hormone pellet therapy. EvexiPEL testosterone pellets are custom-compounded at an FDA-registered 503B outsourcing facility. The expert pharmacists extract the exact amount of testosterone needed from plant sources, like yams, cactus, or soy, and form them into pellets.
