Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Both men and women, pre and post-menopausal, can get BIHRT.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy provides your body with an adequate supply of a deficient hormone that is molecularly identical to the hormone that your body produces. Because it is molecularly identical, it can attach to the receptor sites in the cells correctly and is not recognized by the body as something foreign. Synthetic hormones are not molecularly identical and therefore have adverse effects. BIHRT can be administered in many ways, such as orally, At Alazzo Med Spa, we use pellets that are slowly and steadily released into the bloodstream so that the body can have a constant level of hormones. There are other ways that hormone therapy can be administered such as orally. However, ways such as oral administration is not considered bio-identical because it can’t get through the gastric acid in the stomach so it’s absorbed by the intestines then removed and expelled by the liver.
The pellets used in BIHRT are placed in the hip/upper buttock area in fatty tissue.
BIHRT is performed every 3 weeks for women and every 4 weeks for men.
As we age, our hormones become imbalanced. This imbalance is typically low Testosterone in both men and women. Many environmental factors that are essentially inescapable cause Testosterone to decline which leaves many men and women displaying the same symptoms. Some symptoms of low Testosterone include, but are not limited to: being tired, irritable, depressed and anxious. To learn about more symptoms of low Testosterone, visit our website.
BIHRT helps rid these symptoms and has numerous other benefits such as: protecting the heart, protecting against diabetes, protecting against cancer and improving physique. For more in-depth benefits of BIHRT, visit our Benefits of T Pellets page.
In order to administer the pellets, we numb the hip/upper buttock area with a local anesthetic. We then make a small incision that we will painlessly place an instrument in that allows the pellets to be nestled in the fat of the area and cover the incision with Steri-Strips.
