What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Healthy hormone levels are responsible for energy, vitality, cognitive thinking, body composition, bone density, stabilization of skin, hair, and nails, and libido and sexual function. As we age our body produces fewer hormones, leaving us feeling tired, less alert, and with a reduced sex drive. Hormone Replacement Therapy restores our hormones to levels comparable to when we were young. Essentially, it slows down the aging process, prevents diseases, and improves the quality of life.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is when medical professionals utilize natural plant hormones that are similar to the hormones found in the human body. They then transition these plant hormones in a lab into being exactly the same as human hormones or bioidentical. The human body cannot tell the difference between these bioidentical hormones and the ones that the body creates itself. 

The bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offered at Rock Creek Wellness includes a four-hour consultation, an advanced DXA scan, an echocardiogram, and a complete lifestyle modification plan including diet plan, lifestyle risk assessment, exercise plan, supplementation, and natural hormone therapy. Contact Rock Creek Wellness for a consultation to start your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and start feeling young again.   

What is Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Pellet hormone replacement therapy is a proven way to release small, consistent doses of bioidentical hormones into the body. 

The process of pellet insertion only takes 5–10 minutes. The pellets are smaller than the size of a grain of rice and are inserted under the fatty lining of your skin in the upper buttocks through a small incision. The procedure is done right in the office and requires some local anesthesia. 

These pellets release a slow, steady stream of bioidentical hormones made from plant sources. The hormones are a mix of estrogen and testosterone.

How Much Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Cost?

The cost of hormone replacement therapy can vary from center to center. Rock Creek Wellness in Kansas City provides pellet therapy for an affordable price. The initial consultation cost $250. From there the price differs between males and females. Female patients can expect to pay $450 for pellet insertion, while male patients should expect to pay a bit more at $900. 

Our Premier Care program can cost a bit more upfront but requires more comprehensive testing so that we can provide you with a complete lifestyle plan. 

What are The Benefits of Hormone Replacement?

Hormone replacement can benefit both men and women and will leave you feeling more energized and younger. Females experience relief from symptoms such as vaginal dryness, incontinence, migraines, menstrual headaches, relief of depression and anxiety, improvement in sex drive, and better sleep.

Male patients tend to experience more energy, better cognitive function, higher libido, and hormone replacement therapy can even help prevent the effects of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer, and osteoporosis. 

Why is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Better than Other Hormone Replacement Therapies?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy utilizes healthy, natural hormones that do not cause the same problems as synthetics. This type of hormone replacement therapy does not cause fluctuations in mood and energy the way that typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy do because of the consistent, steady, slow release of natural hormones.
