Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy in Greenwood Village, CO
Tired? Mood Swings? Low Sex Drive?
Hormone therapy can provide great insight in how to help patients feel better again. Unfortunately, most traditional medical practices aren’t able to take the time to find out WHY patients don’t feel like themselves anymore. Instead, they keep writing prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication, sleeping pills and other drugs that simply mask symptoms.
Our practitioners are concerned with getting to the root of the problem to discover WHY our patients aren’t feeling well and help them do something about it.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with EvexiPEL pellets is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies. With bio-identical hormones, the structure of the hormone - testosterone, estrogen or both - is matched to the individual patient's needs. Bio-identical hormones are natural, plant-based substances that metabolize in our bodies the way nature intended. Synthetic hormones are mass-produced and artificially formulated in a lab.
Composed of either estradiol or testosterone, bio-identical hormone pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a Tic Tac. EvexiPEL sources its pellets from a leading compounding pharmacy in the U.S. that presses the hormones into the tony, solid cylinders. The pellets release testosterone or estrogen into the bloodstream based on heartrate activity, in other words, due to increased physical activity or emotional stress (good or bad). This steady stream of hormones helps keep symptoms such as mood and energy fluctuations at bay.
EvexiPEL practitioners treat patients of all ages - as young as the 20s and into the 90s - so there is no firm answer. Instead, it's a matter of personal preference. The patient needs to decide how long he or she wants to look and feel their best and experience a higher quality of life. That's how long the patient should be on bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Most female patients being to "feel better" within 48 to 72 hours, though it may take a week or two for some women to notice a difference. Men can expect to experience the benefits of their pellet implants within 1 to 2 weeks. To achieve optimal health, living a healthy lifestyle - balanced diet and regular exercise - goes hand-in-hand with hormone balance.
Many - but not all- insurance companies reimburse EvexiPEL patients for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy via pellets. Keystone Health & Wellness Center can provide the paperwork necessary for patients to file for reimbursement.
