UNDERSTANDING FEMALE HORMONES
Hormones are chemical substances that are used to control internal activities in our bodies, such as sexual development. When it comes to women, there are two major sex hormones; estrogen and progesterone.
Although these hormones occur in both genders, women experience much higher levels in their bodies. In fact, this creates the building blocks of what differentiates women from men.
ROLE OF ESTROGEN, PROGESTERONE, AND TESTOSTERONE
Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone are all very important to in a women’s life. Estrogen promotes vaginal blood flow, thickens the uterus wall for menstruation, provides natural lubrication, and encourages breast tissue growth. Meanwhile, progesterone tends to heighten during a woman’s pregnancy and is used by our body to prepare the uterus for a fertilized egg.
Produced mainly in the ovaries, estrogen and progesterone influence muscle growth, bone structure, metabolism, and hair growth.
Just like their male counterparts, women also have testosterone just in a smaller amount. Testosterone is used to stimulate sexual drive and promote menstrual health. Similarly, men also have traces of estrogen and progesterone in their bodies. All of these sex hormones help keep us healthy throughout our lives.
OUR HORMONE LEVELS FLUCTUATE OVER TIME
During a women’s life, their will be fluctuations in hormones. In a women’s 20s, sex hormones are at their highest. However, as we age, our bodies undergo drastic changes as our hormones reach their peak and begin to drop off. Women experience a more marked change when their periods no longer occur, an aging process known as menopause. Some women will begin to feel the hormonal shift into perimenopause and menopause as early as their mid-30’s.
In their 50s, most women will have undergone menopause and will cease to have a menstrual cycle.
FEMALE HORMONE IMBALANCE SYMPTOMS
Although these fluctuations are natural, they can cause some serious female hormone imbalances and result in many unwanted side effects such as:
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Sleepless nights
- Pain during sex
- Hot flashes
- Mood changes
- Memory loss
- Low energy and fatigue
Since all of our bodies respond differently to changes, these symptoms vary in severity from woman to woman. In fact, while some women may experience horrible hot flashes, lack of sleep, and mood changes during menopause, others might only gain a little bit of weight.
WHAT CAUSES FEMALE HORMONE IMBALANCES?
All of our hormones work together to achieve one common goal: balance. However, several factors can cause our hormones to change, including:
- Aging (menopause)
- Underlying health issues
Along with menopause, there are two other common hormonal imbalances in women we commonly encounter in our Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine clinic and these include adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism.
Our adrenal glands are pyramid-shaped and sit on top of the kidneys, like a hat. They produce about 20% of our reproductive hormones. Along with sex hormone production, the adrenals also create the primary stress hormone named cortisol.
Cortisol is also known as the fight or flight hormone. When we experience drastic life changes, our adrenal glands will increase the production of cortisol to help our bodies manage the stress and this is a normal reaction. However, excessive amounts of stress can cause adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue, can cause intense sluggishness, lack of sleep at night, lowered sex drive, slow down of metabolism, and a negatively impacted immune system. In extreme cases, it can even lead to adrenal failure.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck. This small gland is responsible for our entire body’s metabolic function. The thyroid hormones regulate:
- Body temperature
- Levels of hydration
- Hair and nail growth
Oftentimes, the traditional testing performed by our primary care and sometimes even endocrinologists will not be able to identify or treat a sluggish thyroid, known as hypothyroidism. Unfortunately, hypothyroidism can cause hormonal imbalances that result in hot flashes, muscle weakness, dehydration, and weight gain.
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Here’s the good news: female hormone imbalances are easily treatable. Hormone imbalance solutions like Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) are a great way to balance hormones like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and more. At Propser Direct Health, we offer a natural Hormone Replacement Therapy treatment called pellet therapy in partnership with Sottopelle.
WHAT IS PELLET THERAPY?
Pellet therapy is the process of re-establishing hormones that have been lost in your body. This process helps reduce the negative symptoms of hormone imbalances.
At Prosper Direct Health, we use a natural pellet hormone therapy also known as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Bio-identical hormones are derived from natural sources, such as yams or roots, that best mimic the molecular structure of the hormones we naturally create. This way, our body can readily identify the hormones and levels are restored within the body.
The treatment is called pellet therapy because it comes in the form of tiny pellets that are placed under the skin, which allows the body to absorb trace amounts of vital hormones for 3-4 months at a time.
IS PELLET THERAPY SAFE?
Not only is pellet therapy safe, but it is also completely natural. Pellets are bio-identical and are derived from natural plant materials. Therefore, it is more readily able to be absorbed by the body.
Furthermore, we have undergone significant training with Sottopelle and are also specialized in anti-aging medicine, and functional medicine so we are very experienced with hormone management.
HOW DOES PELLET THERAPY WORK?
When you come in for your consultation we will go over your symptoms then take a sample of your blood to determine your current hormone levels which is then interpreted by our medical providers. Our treatment is also personalized to each individual and analyzes the following factors:
- Hormone levels
- Medical history
Once the blood has resulted we determine the perfect amount of hormone pellets for your body’s needs, we then numb the area, make a small incision and then carefully place the pellet in your body. Pellets are very small and are about the size of a grain of rice. We typically put them under the skin in the upper buttock.
Since pellets are bio identical, they mimic the natural molecular structure of the hormones you have naturally occurring in the body, such as testosterone and estradiol. Depending on the hormone levels your body needs, this treatment will steadily release hormones for 3-4 months.
Once the pellets are inserted into your body, steri-strips are applied to close the site. We recommend you leave the bandage on for 5-6 days and avoid any significant physical activity.
THE PROPSER DIFFERENCE
When it comes to hormone pellets for women, there are two very important aspects. First is dosing and the second is experience. We use the Sottopelle dosing protocols which were developed in 1992 and over 250,000 patients have been dosed with this protocol!
