As you get older, you will probably develop sleeping issues, mood swings, and other problems. You might also gain weight and develop hot flashes. Instead of living with these emotional and physical challenges, you should use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to correct these problems. At Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, OH, we can use this technique to balance your hormones and improve your life.
What Are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
When you were young, your estrogen and other hormones were probably in balance. As a result, you most likely had an easier time regulating your emotions, maintaining a healthy weight, and achieving restful sleep at night. Unfortunately, your hormones may become imbalanced as you get older and go through menopause.
Receiving bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a good way to restore your hormone levels and improve your life. This innovative treatment offers a number of unique benefits.
An Easy Option
When you use pills, creams, or other methods to balance your hormones, you may have to administer your treatment every day. If you have a busy, full life with many responsibilities, you will probably struggle to remember to put a cream onto your body or take your pills at the same time every day. If you forget to take your pills or use your cream, your hormone treatment may not be effective.
Fortunately, you won’t have to interrupt your daily schedule when you use our hormone treatments to improve your health. We can use pellets to restore your hormone levels and relieve your negative symptoms. We will implant your pellet during a quick appointment at our office in Avon. Your pellet will usually last for several months. This low-maintenance option is a great way to fix your hormonal issues.
A Natural Method
Many medications and other hormonal therapies will cause you to develop bleeding problems and other negative physical symptoms. These treatments may use synthetic ingredients to balance your hormones.
In contrast, our hormone pellets contain organic plant-based ingredients. These hormones have a molecular structure that is identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces. These natural pellets will be very gentle on your body.
A Personalized Treatment
We will customize your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to match your symptoms, hormone levels, and other unique characteristics. Since your body produces a unique amount of hormones, you may need a different dose than your friends and family members.
To ensure that we are providing you with a beneficial dose of hormones, we will monitor you during the treatment process and regularly test your hormones. As your hormonal levels change, we will make periodic adjustments to your treatment.
A Consistent Treatment
Many treatments will cause your hormonal levels to fluctuate. For example, if you use pills to improve your hormones, you might experience intense hormonal fluctuations if you miss a dose or take your pills at an incorrect time. These fluctuations can decrease the effectiveness of these treatments and cause you to develop negative symptoms.
Our hormone pellets will not cause you to experience this problem. After we administer this treatment, your pellets will send a steady stream of hormones into your body. Instead of dealing with frequent fluctuations, your hormonal levels will improve in a reliable, consistent manner.
A Proven Method
Although pellets sound very advanced, people have been using this hormone therapy for a long time. In fact, people have been using pellets to adjust their hormones since the 1930s. In addition, studies have shown that this type of bioidentical hormone is very good at relieving symptoms that are associated with inadequate hormone levels.
What Are the Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance?
If you are a woman, you might develop inadequate hormonal levels during a variety of times in your life. For example, you will become increasingly likely to experience negative hormonal changes after you go through menopause. This life change can cause you to develop a number of physical and emotional issues.
As your hormonal levels become imbalanced, you will become more likely to gain unwanted pockets of fat on your body. This extra weight can be extremely difficult to shed with exercise programs and diets.
In addition to gaining weight, you might have trouble falling asleep and obtaining high-quality rest. This problem can cause you to feel very tired during the daytime. In addition, you may experience hot flashes that prevent you from focusing on your job and other important tasks.
The hormonal changes that come with menopause can also lead to a number of upsetting emotional challenges. In particular, you might feel anxious about small setbacks in your life. In addition, you could become depressed and have difficulty enjoying social events, hobbies, and sports. You may also develop mood swings that cause you to experience conflicts with your friends and family members.
Which Hormones Will I Receive?
The hormones that we give you will depend on the specific problems that you are experiencing. If you are a woman, you might receive estrogen and testosterone during your treatment.
Estrogen is a type of hormone that influences the condition of your bones, reproductive system, and other aspects of your body. Going through puberty, pregnancy, and menopause will cause your estrogen levels to change. In addition, developing diabetes, blood pressure problems, and other health issues can affect your estrogen levels.
When you go through menopause, your estrogen levels will naturally become lower. It’s common to experience this life event when you are in your fifties. This problem can cause you to develop bone issues. In addition, you can gain weight, have mood swings, and experience other problems. Receiving hormone pellets can be a good way to enhance your estrogen levels and decrease these symptoms.
Men and women naturally create testosterone. This important hormone affects sex drive and muscle mass. As people become older, their bodies will begin to create lower amounts of testosterone.
If you are a woman with inadequate testosterone levels, you might lose muscle tone and have problems with your mental clarity. In addition, you could experience mood swings and lose interest in sex. Fixing your testosterone levels can improve these emotional and physical problems.
What Will My Pellets Be Like?
Your pellets will contain a dose of bioidentical hormones. Although this dose will be customized to fit your hormone needs, it’s common to receive pellets that provide you with additional estrogen or testosterone. These bioidentical hormones will be pressed into small cylinders. These pellets will be similar in size to grains of rice. Since these pellets will be very small, the implantation process will be gentle and easy.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
If you are experiencing mood problems, sleeping issues, and other challenges, you might benefit from receiving hormone replacement therapy. To determine whether your hormones are imbalanced, we will discuss your symptoms and medical background during a one-on-one consultation. During this discussion, you should be prepared to tell us when your physical and emotional problems began.
In addition, we will use a variety of diagnostic methods to test your hormone levels. In particular, we will use blood tests to learn more about the hormone levels in your blood. We can also use DNA testing and other methods to design a comprehensive treatment plan for you.
How Should I Get Ready for My Hormone Therapy?
Before we implant your pellet, we will advise you to receive a pap smear and a mammogram. These diagnostic tests will help us determine whether you are healthy enough to receive this hormonal treatment. In addition, we will advise you not to take ibuprofen, aspirin, and other blood thinners for seven days before your treatment.
Will the Implantation Process Be Uncomfortable?
Receiving your hormonal pellets is a quick, comfortable experience that usually takes less than 15 minutes to finish. When you arrive at our office in Avon, we will numb the skin in your target area.
After your tissues have become numb, we will quickly insert a very small pellet into your body. Depending on your symptoms and needs, we may place your pellet into your buttocks or flanks. We will complete your appointment by putting a small bandage onto your skin. Since your tissues will be anesthetized, you will feel comfortable during the implantation process.
Will I Need To Change My Behavior After I Receive My Pellet?
You will not have a long period of downtime after we insert your pellet into your body. However, we will instruct you not to take a shower or engage in other activities that will immerse your body in water for at least 24 hours after the implantation process is complete. In addition, we will advise you to temporarily avoid engaging in strenuous activities that involve your lower body.
You will usually be able to take off your bandage after a couple of days. At this point, you will be able to return to your normal exercise schedule and other activities.
When Will My Symptoms Begin To Improve?
After we complete your appointment, your pellet will immediately begin to send beneficial hormones into your body. Since you will have a unique response to this pellet, your improvements may appear more or less quickly than other people.
However, your pellet will usually begin to affect your mood swings, sleeping issues, and other symptoms within about one week. After about two to four weeks, you should see improvements in your physical and mental issues. When we administer your pellet, we can provide you with additional details about the likely timeline of your results.
How Many Hormone Treatments Will I Need?
Over time, your pellet will dissolve. We can maintain your improved hormone levels by inserting additional pellets into your body. The frequency of these appointments will depend on your hormone levels, your body’s reaction to your pellets, and other factors.
In general, you will probably need to visit our office for follow-up treatments about three to four times every year. We will monitor your hormone levels through your treatment. If your hormone levels or symptoms change, we can alter the dose of hormones that you receive in your pellets.

If your hormones are unbalanced, you are likely to have difficulty sleeping, suffer from mood swings, and gain weight. You may also have hot flashes, depression, and other problems.
