Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies. Our subcutaneous BHRT utilizes bio-identical hormones derived from natural, plant-based substances. Unlike synthetic hormones, the structure of the bio-identical hormone – testosterone, estrogen or both – most closely matches each patient’;s individual needs.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement - A Superior Option
Being mass-produced, synthetic hormones are composed of either horse urine or artificially formulated (synthetic) hormones in a lab. Manufactures intentionally create synthetic hormones that are slightly different than natural hormones in order to patent those formulations.
Health practitioners have been performing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with natural, plat-based pellet implants since the 1930s. Recently there has a been a resurgence in the number of practitioners offering pellet therapy, after studies revealed the natural hormones may be a safer, more effective alternative to synthetic hormone modalities that have been popular for decades.
BHRT is Trusted by Patients and Practitioners
One of the first practitioners to rediscover the benefits of BHRT with pellets was EvexiPEL founder Terri DeNeui, DNP, ACNP, APRN-BC. DeNeui launched EVEXIAS Medical Centers in 2016 and has been helping patients heal ever since, by taking an integrative and functional approach to health and wellness.
Low testosterone and hormone imbalance is a common occurrence for men as they age. Once a man turns 35, he may expect to experience a gradual decline in testosterone production – also known as andropause – at a rate of up to 10 percent loss of output per year.
As testosterone levels decline, many men suffer from low energy, brain fog, stubborn belly fat, mood disorders, sexual dysfunction and more. Imbalanced hormones in men may also increase the risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, as well as other diseases and conditions.
Regain Your Energy and Balance with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
EvexiPEL practitioners take an integrated approach to treating hormone imbalance in men. They perform a thorough exam to assess hormone levels and determine what caused the hormone imbalance (including estrogen, testosterone, thyroid, and others) and other health issues in the first place.
For many men, the natural decline in hormone production is to blame. Other patients may also have difficulty metabolizing hormones or suffer from low thyroid, poor gut health or other ailments. EvexiPEL practitioners also pay special attention to treating toxicity – physical, environmental and mental – which may leave men more susceptible to illnesses and disease, as well as early onset andropause.
Once the practitioner uncovers the root cause of your hormone imbalance and other health issues – they’ll prescribe a treatment plan to address your specific needs.
For men with low testosterone, research consistently shows that subcutaneous bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with pellets may be a superior method for delivering hormones to men with low testosterone because of the individualized dosing, steady state of hormone release and natural over synthetic options. Depending on the patient, the practitioner may also prescribe a detoxification program, thyroid supplements, nutritional supplements, mental health support and more.
