Hormone Pellet Therapy New Providence
The changes our bodies experience as we age can be surprising. Some changes are expected, like going gray and developing wrinkles. Then there are internal changes that affect the way your body functions, like changes in your hormone levels. When these changes start to occur, it can feel like you are no longer yourself, which can significantly impact your quality of life.
At DRC360, we believe that you can grow old gracefully while still enjoying all the things you love to do. One of the ways best ways we can help make aging easier is through hormone pellet therapy. This simple treatment can provide your body with everything it needs to keep you feeling like yourself.
How Hormonal Changes Affect the Body
While it is natural to start slowing down a bit as you get older, sometimes the reason you may be feeling lethargic or disinterested in activities you used to enjoy has to do with the level of hormones in your body.
As we age, the body naturally produces a lower and lower amount of hormones. As a results, fatigue becomes more common, energy levels decrease, and changes in mood such as increased irritation start to occur more frequently.
Decreases in hormonal levels also affect men and women in different ways:
Women – Decreases in the production of estrogen and progesterone as a results of aging and menopause can lead to issues including:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Vaginal discomfort
- Painful intercourse
- Poor sleep
- Increased risk of certain cancers/cardiovascular disease
Men – As testosterone becomes less abundant, men can experience a number of changes, including:
- Poor recovery
- Difficulty building muscle
- Poor memory
- Low red blood cell count
- Poor sex drive
- Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
- Decreased bone density
What Is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment intended to supply the body with hormones that have the same chemical composition as the ones found naturally in the body. This will help to increase energy levels and prevent other issues associated with low hormone levels from affecting the person’s quality of life.
The hormones are compressed into a small pellet that is inserted into the body. The pellet slowly releases hormones at a steady rate so that the body has a controlled and constant supply to keep it balanced. Once the pellet has fully dissolved, another one can be easily inserted into the body. The treatment is safe and FDA-approved, and it produces very few side-effects.
Implanting the hormone pellet is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. The process should only take around 10 minutes to complete. The pellet steadily releases the appropriate amount of hormones to keep the body balanced and avoids the need for painful injections. The pellet should provide hormones for a period of:
- 6 months for men
- 4 months for women
