As you start to notice changes in your body, it can be challenging to recognize what is normal or the result of aging and what is something else. Low testosterone levels could be the culprit. BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) for men can be an effective treatment option for balancing testosterone levels.
At Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood, KS, we believe that men should have the same options available to them when it comes to health and wellness. That’s why we offer BHRT for men – a safe and effective bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that can help achieve a more balanced wellness. BHRT helps improve energy levels, weight management, libido, mental clarity, and overall well-being.
What Is Male BHRT?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. It’s a term used to describe treatments designed to replace hormones in the body that have become depleted due to aging or other health conditions.
While the exact types of hormones used in BHRT vary from patient to patient, testosterone is the most commonly prescribed hormone for men. Testosterone is responsible for maintaining muscle mass, libido, energy levels, body weight, and other physical characteristics. As men age, their bodies naturally produce less testosterone, which is why many older men seek BHRT treatments.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bio-Identical hormones come from natural plant hormones that are similar to human hormones. These plant hormones are then altered to create an exact match with the human hormones. They are “identical” in every way, and the body and its receptor sites cannot tell the difference.
Therefore, the body will respond identically to these hormones, just like those created naturally inside the various organ and glandular systems of the human body. As hormone levels diminish as we age, these bio-identical hormones can be introduced into the body in multiple ways to replenish and restore our hormones to more youthful levels. These youthful levels result in improved quality of life, prevention of disease, and a slow-down in the bio-marker.
How Can Men Benefit From BHRT?
For decades male hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been a prevalent approach to address the signs of aging. BHRT for men can help them feel like themselves again, regulating hormones and providing balance. BHRT has been shown to improve symptoms associated with low testosterone, such as:
- Lack of energy
- Low sex drive
- Depression and anxiety
- Difficulty sleeping
- Poor concentration
- Memory loss
Additionally, many men report improved muscle strength after undergoing BHRT treatments and an overall increase in confidence due to feeling more youthful and energetic again. Of course, these benefits will differ from person to person, depending on what kind of treatment they receive.
The range of health benefits associated with BHRT should not be overlooked either; studies now show that BHRT treatments result in optimal levels of male hormones, which can help reduce the risk of certain diseases such as cardiovascular disease and prostate cancer. Many doctors have recommended BHRT as an ideal hormone replacement therapy for men, and its results can speak for themselves.
What Kind of BHRT Do We Use?
At Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood, KS, we use pellet therapy for BHRT. BHRT pellet therapy is quickly becoming the preferred treatment for men seeking to maintain healthy testosterone levels. BHRT pellets provide a steady, sustained release of natural testosterone – without the drawbacks of synthetic forms.
What Exactly is BHRT Pellet Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – in this case, pellet therapy, is an increasingly popular hormone replacement option that utilizes hormones derived from natural plant sources, allowing the body to regulate its hormone levels more naturally and physiologically. Compared to other hormone replacement therapies, such as oral and transdermal forms, hormone pellet therapy has an advantage as it provides consistent hormone levels throughout the day without incurring any ‘roller coaster’ effect.
How Does A BHRT Treatment Work?
BHRT pellet therapy for men is a safe in-office procedure that takes only 10-15 minutes. BHRT pellets are inserted under the skin’s fatty lining in the upper buttocks, and the small incision from the insertion is then closed with sterile tape strips.
While some BHRT treatments require taking a hormone-replacement pill daily, BHRT pellet therapy offers continuous treatment that delivers hormones to the body at a steady rate and keeps hormone levels balanced until the following pellet procedure.
How Often Will You Need BHRT Pellets?
BHRT treatments involve injecting BHRT pellets into the body, a highly effective regimen for men looking to improve their overall hormone balance and health. Depending on individual needs and goals, you typically come in for BHRT treatment every 4-6 months.
