Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treatment that can rectify problems caused by imbalances in the body’s natural hormone levels.
Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate most essential functions in your body, from growth and reproduction to digestion and metabolism. When there’s a disruption of the delicate balance of hormones in your body, it can have profound effects on your health and well-being.
At Sedona Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Lanchbury uses BioTE® pellet therapy, compounded natural hormones, and nutraceutical supplementation.
The idea behind Hormone Replacement Therapy is pretty straightforward. After identifying which hormones in your body are out of balance, Dr. Lanchbury prescribes the Hormone Replacement Therapy that restores your hormone levels to normal. It’s important to note that there are differences between regular hormone replacement therapy and the bioidentical type.
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been available for decades, but the prescriptions you get from many providers use lab-manufactured synthetic hormones. They’re close to being the same as your natural hormones, but they do have some drawbacks.
First, synthetic hormones aren’t as easy for your body to absorb and use because their molecular structure is different. Hormone Replacement Therapy uses natural plant hormones that have the same molecular structure as the hormones your body makes, so they’re more readily absorbed.
Secondly, synthetic hormones don’t make any allowance for the requirements of each patient. Hormone Replacement Therapy uses custom-compounding, which means the pharmacy prepares your medication according to Dr. Lanchbury’s instructions, based on your unique needs.
Hormone Replacement Therapy can treat a wide range of health problems, including:
- Menopause symptoms
- Andropause (male menopause)
- Thyroid disease
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Brain fog
- Low libido
- Anxiety and depression
- Chronic fatigue
- Erectile dysfunction
- Adrenal and thyroid disorders
- Some cancers
Hormone Replacement Therapy can also increase your energy levels, help with weight loss, and enhance muscle strength.
How do I take Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy is available in several forms, but implants, where Dr. Lanchbury inserts tiny pellets the size of a rice grain under the skin on your buttocks, are one of the most foolproof. These BioTE pellets are a convenient way of receiving the required dose of hormones over long periods without taking medication.
Other methods of receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
The method you use to take Hormone Replacement Therapy depends to a large extent on the type of treatment you need; for example, BioTE pellets contain either estrogen or testosterone. Dr. Lanchbury carefully considers your symptoms, medical history, and any other health issues you have before recommending the appropriate treatment.
