Top 5 Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is one of those phrases that can raise many questions. Oftentimes, those questions arise from not knowing enough about this health procedure, so we are hoping to provide some light on the subject!

Hormones control most of our basic body functions.  They coordinate immune function, growth, appetite, digestion, mood, and libido.  As we age, our hormone levels start to deplete and we can start to experience adverse side effects from these changes. HRT can help to reverse some of these side effects and is beneficial to the overall health of aging men and women. When hormone levels become unbalanced, we then often seek out hormone replacement therapies to treat symptoms.

There are many different methods of HRT offered but one of the main methods we offer is the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) via pellets. BHRT has been around and successfully used since the 1930’s! That’s some pretty good history!   Hormone pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-4 months in women and 4-5 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery. Hormone pellet therapy does not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy. For more information on BHRT pellet therapy, download our comprehensive brochure: Blue Sky MD Pellets FAQ
