Feeling down or anxious lately?

Naturally occurring deficiencies in testosterone and estrogen may lead to symptoms that mimic anxiety and depression. Many patients are misdiagnosed and then over-prescribed medication for these conditions that can be treated naturally through Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Conditions like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, and depression can all be stabilized and improved by undergoing hormone replacement therapy. Different from synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are identical to the hormones your body naturally produces. These plant-based hormones are a safe and natural solution to the hormonal depletion that naturally occurs over time. There are many hormones in our bodies. The following three hormones are often associated with issues for both genders as we continually age.

Restoring them through BHRT can yield the following benefits:

Estrogen: Relieve menopause symptoms, prevent aging diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, prevent premature aging of the skin, restore sexual vitality
Progesterone: Improve restorative sleep, protect the uterine lining and breast tissue, and prevent excessive androgen hair growth
Testosterone: Improve anxiety, PTSD, and depression symptoms, improve mental clarity, improve libido and enhance sexual pleasure, protect against Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease, restore normal sleep patterns, strengthen bones and protect against osteoporosis.

Tampa Bay Total Wellness: BHRT Options – something for everyone!

BHRT Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellets are a specific form of delivery for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy that uses tiny pellets inserted just under the skin. The pellets slowly release natural forms of estrogen and/or testosterone into the body to balance hormones. Pellets are inserted by a medical professional in-office once every 3-4 months. A numbing agent is used, and the procedure is quick and painless – about 15 minutes total. This is a great option for a patient who does not want to have to think about treating themselves from home daily or weekly (see below options). Not all pellets are made the same – beware of cheap, unnatural options! At TBTW, we take pride in using Belmar pellets. These are made without synthetic binders (like stearic acid) which some pellet manufacturers add to their product. The team at Tampa Bay Total Wellness encourages this treatment modality for BHRT since the slow, gradual release from pellet therapy mimics our body’s own release of hormones and restores the body’s homeostasis.

BHRT Topical Creams

Hormone topical creams allow the right dose of hormones to be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream.  Creams are applied daily by the patient in the comfort of their own home.

BHRT Sublingual RDTs and Troches

Specially compounded RDT’s (rapid dissolving tablets) and troches release hormones by saliva into the bloodstream.  Taken daily at bedtime by the patient in the comfort of their own home.

BHRT Testosterone Injections

Injectable testosterone therapy is a great option for men and women who are not able to come into the office for the pellet therapy. The patient takes home their own package of syringes and injects themselves weekly from the comfort of their own home.
