Bioidentical hormones have been studied for over 70 years with evidence that they are safe and effective in treating a number of hormone-related problems that are most commonly associated with menopause, peri-menopause, and andropause (male menopause). Through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, many symptoms of menopause can be reversed!
Although data from the Women’s Health Initiative Study and 11-year follow-up revealed an increased incidence of breast cancer mortality, strokes and blood clots, these findings apply only to Premarin and Provera, which are synthetic hormones; bioidentical hormones were not used in these studies. Interestingly, multiple mouse studies in the 80’s and 90’s have revealed the carcinogenic properties of Provera with respect to breast tissue. Unlike synthetic drugs, bioidentical hormone therapy uses hormone molecules that have been synthesized into human identical hormones, which are already in and recognized by our bodies.
Synthetic regimens deliver a "one size fits all" approach that is not conducive to properly treating hormonal issues, where our team utilizes compounding pharmacies that create bioidentical hormones, made specifically for each patient. Through personal medical history evaluations and blood analysis, our medical team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that will help you stop suffering and start living!
Natural hormones, or otherwise known as bioidentical hormones are hormones that are molecularly identical to the hormones produced in our own bodies.
Our bodies don't see the difference between the natural hormones that are supplemented and the hormones it produces by itself. As a result, bioidentical hormones are properly utilized, and are then able to be naturally metabolized and excreted from the body, giving you the benefits you need, without the side-effects that most people fear from synthetic hormone supplementation.
The RevitaLife providers will do extensive blood and if needed saliva testing to determine your exact hormone profile. Hormones are available as implanted pellets, transdermal creams, gels, patches, sublingual troches, sublingual drops, vaginal suppositories, oral capsules, and injectables.
Dr. Christina Robins uses time released pellets that improves one's hormone levels and maintains them for an extended period of time. The hormone pellets are made from the wild yam plant. Pellets are made to replace testosterone and estrogen hormone levels.
Men use testosterone pellets and women usually need testosterone and estrogen pellets for hormone replacement.
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment method used to deliver bioidentical hormones into the body. Hormone pellets are used to restore ideal hormone levels in persons who are looking to get relief from the symptoms of menopause and andropause (male menopause). These symptoms include hot flashes, fatigue, brain fog, low libido and many more.
The size of a tiny rice grain or tic tac, bioidentical hormone pellets are inserted underneath the skin in the hip area by a physician. They are composed of 100% bio-identical estrogen, testosterone, progesterone and anastrazole, or the combination of these. Each pellet is created by a compounding pharmacy and sent to our medical facility in sterile glass jars.
Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy include:
Women typically are approximately $350 every 4 months.
Men typically are approximately $600 every 6 months.
Pellets are inserted in the upper buttocks through a tiny incision which is then covered with a steri-strip. Local anesthesia is used prior to insertion and you'll feel almost nothing at all during the 3-minute procedure other than perhaps a little pressure when the pellets are inserted through the trocar. Other than some bruising and possibly some minor discomfort afterwards, there are very rarely any complications from this simple procedure. After insertion, we suggest that you avoid strenuous physical activity for 24-48 hours and refrain from swimming or soaking in the bath tub for 3-5 days.
Even though pellet therapy has been in use since the 1930's, many have not heard of the treatment because pellets cannot be patented and marketed by pharmaceutical companies. Companies cannot profit from pellets in the same way they can from other hormones such as Estratest, Premarin, Provera or PremPro.
The pellets are absorbed naturally by the body over a period of 4-6 months. There is no need to remove them.
Prior to treating you, a blood analysis is performed in order to gather information on your current hormone levels. Using this data, our physicians create the correct balance between the testosterone and estrogen pellets and the progesterone they prescribe for you. After your initial pellets are inserted, blood work is performed regularly so that we can continue to analyze your status and make sure the pellets are working like they should be.
