Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
At LifeSpann Primary Care, we offer bio-identical hormone therapy. This therapy uses hormones that are identical to the ones produced naturally by the body. This makes them much more effective at treating hormone-related conditions than synthetic hormones.
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Used For?
Bio-identical hormone therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including menopause, PMS, and fertility issues. It can also be used to improve energy levels, mood, and sleep quality. If you are interested in bio-identical hormone therapy, please call us today to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you determine if this therapy is right for you.
What is the Treatment For Hormone Imbalance?
The root cause of a hormone imbalance often dictates the course of treatment. In many cases, hormone replacement therapy using natural bioidentical hormones is the best option. Bioidentical hormone therapy has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment option with the least number of side effects when compared to non-bioidentical hormone therapy treatments. In addition to treating hormone imbalance, bioidentical hormone therapy has been shown to reduce risk of certain diseases, including some cardiovascular complications and breast cancer.
Our Specially trained providers are able to uncover why your hormones are imbalanced and design a treatment that is specific to your health needs and lifestyle. Hormone therapy options include testosterone, estrogen, and thyroid hormone therapies delivered as creams, gels, patches or pellets. Your plan will be paired with nutraceuticals to maximize efficacy and ensure your body has all the nutrients necessary to support optimal bioavailability and absorption of your hormone treatment. Each plan is tailored to meet your unique needs using integrative functional medicine practices that have been proven effective for better health.
What is Hormone Therapy?
Hormone therapy is the treatment of symptoms or disease with synthetic or naturally-derived hormones for Men and Women. When the body produces too little of a particular hormone, hormone replacement therapy is necessary to replenish stores and maintain natural production levels.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the natural option for hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources and designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally by the human body.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are an exact structural match to your own hormones. This feature allows the supplemented hormones to fit perfectly into your body’s hormone receptors thereby reducing possible side effects and increasing the effectiveness of the treatment. Efficacy and outcomes are further improved when hormone pellet therapy is the method of delivery.
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormone pellet therapy is the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy among both patients and providers because of its convenience and efficacy. LifeSpann Primary Care & Esthetics carefully considered which company they would choose to produce the Hormones and supplements we would like to offer our patients. After much Consideration and research, we chose to use Evexias (EvexiPEL) Health Solutions as they offer the most natural, affordable, and effective products.
When compared to other delivery methods, natural hormone pellet therapy offers numerous benefits including:
- Convenient: EvexiPEL hormone pellets are inserted under the top layer of skin during a short, routine visit. Replacement is required just two to four times per year. No more hassling with daily pills or messy creams and gels.
- Better bioavailability: Hormone pellets are absorbed through cardiac output, mimicking your body’s natural pathway for delivery.
- Natural release: EvexiPEL hormone pellets slowly dissolve releasing just the right amount of hormone to support your body’s needs. You achieve steady, optimal dosing throughout each treatment cycle compared to injections, pills, creams, or gels.
- Fewer side effects: Each custom-compounded EvexiPEL pellet contains bioidentical hormones designed to be structurally identical to the hormones made naturally by your body. This means your body can easily adapt to the supplement, improving the speed of treatment and effectiveness without fear of side effects commonly associated with non-bioidentical hormone therapies.
How Much Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Cost?
EvexiPEL® hormone pellets are an affordable option for many patients. In many cases, labs and consultations are covered by insurance. This superior form of pellet therapy generally costs between $2 and $3 per day—less than most people pay for a cup of coffee. And, unlike that cup of coffee, hormone pellet therapy will change your life.
Patients on EvexiPEL pellet therapy report feeling better within a few weeks of beginning treatment. And within just a few short months, the majority of patients report complete symptom relief as well as additional benefits.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone therapy is effective for symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women. Though commonly believed to be the “male hormone,” testosterone is extremely important to female health and well-being.
Testosterone plays a role in healthy weight management, brain function, cardiovascular health, as well as sexual function and desire. Low levels of testosterone in women or men can lead to undesirable symptoms making even simple daily tasks seem unbearable. Low testosterone can cause you to feel sluggish and tired all the time, as well as impact your focus, memory, muscle definition and libido.
Testosterone hormone therapy effectively treats low testosterone in men and women. The most effective treatment options use EvexiPEL bioidentical hormone pellets.
EvexiPEL testosterone pellet therapy has a reputation for being the superior choice in hormone pellet therapy. EvexiPEL testosterone pellets are custom-compounded at an FDA-registered 503B outsourcing facility, like FarmaKeio Outsourcing. The expert pharmacists extract the exact amount of testosterone needed from plant sources, like yams, cactus, or soy, and form them into pellets.
Estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many of the symptoms that affect women with hormonal imbalance are related to drops in estrogen. Low estrogen levels in women can contribute to low libido, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings.
Estrogen replacement therapy is an effective treatment for estrogen imbalance. In many cases, bioidentical estrogen therapy paired with bioidentical progesterone and bioidentical testosterone supports complete symptom relief and helps reduce risk of disease.
A 2016 study found that estrogen hormone therapy effectively increased libido in postmenopausal women. When low-dose estrogen therapy was paired with testosterone therapy, sexual desire was further enhanced.
EvexiPEL estradiol pellet therapy is considered the superior choice in estrogen pellet therapy. The bioidentical hormones that comprise each pellet are compounded by expert pharmacists at an FDA-registered 503B outsourcing facility, like FarmaKeio Outsourcing. The exact amount of estradiol needed is sourced from plants, like yams, cactus, or soy, and formed into pellets by an expert pharmacist.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
Approximately 12 percent of the U.S. population is suffering from some sort of thyroid disorder, yet less than half of those individuals receive diagnosis and treatment. Most diagnoses occur in people over the age of 60 with women being five times more likely to be affected by thyroid dysfunction than men.
Ignoring symptoms of a thyroid disorder, like an intolerance to heat or cold, unexplained weight gain or loss, low energy and a sluggish metabolism, can put women at greater risk of other diseases, such as osteoporosis and heart disease.
Thyroid therapy is more complex than other hormone therapies. EVEXIAS Health Solutions trains providers to test a patient’s T3, T4, and TSH levels, as well as thyroid antibodies, cortisol, and reverse T3 to get a clear picture of thyroid function. With that information, he/she can determine which combination of thyroid hormones will support you in reaching optimization and relieving your symptoms.
No hormone therapy plan is complete without the support of an expert. Our Providers at LifeSpann Primary Care & Esthetics have undergone extensive training through EVEXIAS Health Solutions as well as many other sources, in order to understand the complexities of hormone health. This includes how to identify and treat hormone imbalances and incorporate integrated functional medicine therapies to achieve optimal results.
Your practitioner will partner with you to develop a treatment plan that considers your goals, medical history, lifestyle, and personal preferences. Our Providers are trained to understand the available hormone replacement therapy treatment options and can support you in identifying which option will minimize risks and side effects while also providing you with the healthier life you’ve been seeking.
Keep in mind that your treatment success will depend on the development of a multidimensional treatment plan and a strong practitioner-patient relationship. When you work closely with your provider, you can identify the right hormone therapy plan and the most effective strategies to achieve the greatest possible outcomes.
Achieving and maintaining hormone balance goes beyond hormone therapy. Your body needs plenty of the right nutrients to support and sustain an optimized state–and even a perfect diet can fall short. EVEXIAS Health Solutions offers a full line of pharmaceutical grade supplements developed by industry-leading professionals with highest-quality ingredients.
Each supplement is formulated to maximize absorption and give your body what it needs for top performance, including metabolic function, hormone health, and more.
Unlike vitamins, Probiotics, and nutraceuticals purchased from retail stores, our products are fresh and made in a compounding pharmacy in the USA. When purchasing your nutraceuticals, make sure to take note of where and how long ago they were made. What are that countries regulatory agencies? How often are they performing quality control checks? Consider how many preservatives had to be added in order for it to maintain viability while being shipped across the oceans, and endure hot and cold environments while traveling for months on end until finally reaching the store, where it will potentially sit for months/years until you purchase it with your hard earned money. We want to make sure that when you purchase our nutraceuticals, you get viable, quality nutrients that really work!
