Hormone Balancing Redlands
Pure Gold Medical Center is the only facility in the area that offers hormone balancing treatments. Hormone balancing can alleviate many symptoms, including depression, decreased sexual desire, anxiety, insomnia and hot flashes. These symptoms might very well be due to a lack of hormones or a hormone imbalance.
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Combatting Hormone Deficiencies
Most patients choose testosterone pellets alone. Testosterone alleviates most symptoms, including hot flashes, while improving sleep, libido, and increasing bone density and muscle mass. Testosterone pellets are placed under the skin of the upper gluteus area. The procedure takes minutes and is virtually pain free. Complications are rare and include extrusion of the pellet, bleeding or infection. Temporary skin discoloration is common. Pellets are not removed and wear off on their own. Side effects of testosterone therapy may include an increase in facial hair or acne.
Excess estrogen can cause many problems, including uterine bleeding, anxiety and weight gain. Sometimes, however, estrogen therapy is needed. Estrogen can be delivered safely and effectively as a vaginal cream or tablet. This treats vaginal symptoms such as dryness and discomfort, along with urinary symptoms like urgency, frequency, hesitancy, and incontinence.
Some patients ‘aromatize,’ or convert, too much testosterone to estradiol. These patients, including breast cancer survivors, may be treated with testosterone-anastrozole implants.
Women in particular benefit from pellets because they are a unique mode of delivering bio-identical hormones which can vastly improve mood, health and provide anti-aging benefits. Forget about ups and downs when these pellets are slowly, yet evenly secreting the right amount of hormones required to balance your mood. Feeling young has never been easier or felt better.
Over-processing hair is a very common cause of hair loss and breakage in women. Thyroid deficiency or excess can cause hair to become finer, losing body, wave and shine. With testosterone therapy, the skin and scalp become healthier within weeks and new hair growth is noticeable within a month.
The human thyroid gland makes a combination of T4, T3, and T2. T4 is converted to the more active form of thyroid, T3, in the peripheral tissues, as the body needs it. However, some people lack an enzyme and are unable to adequately convert T4 to T3.
Levothyroxine consist solely of T4. USP Thyroid contains approximately 80% T4 and 20% T3. Most people who are treated with thyroid hormone do fine on Levothyroxine or USP Thyroid. Measuring levels of T4 and T3 may help to guide therapy.
Benefits from Taking Cortef
The adrenal gland naturally produces hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone combats arthritis, blood/hormone/immune system disorders, skin and eye conditions, breathing problems, cancer, and severe allergies. If your body has a deficiency on hydrocortisone then Cortef may be prescribed to help replace the lack of hydrocortisone.
Trouble Shooting: ‘My pellets didn’t work last time’
Testosterone release from pellet implants is very consistent. They always release testosterone. Testosterone and stearic acid are the ingredients in the implants. Both are found throughout the body. Neither compression pressure nor added ingredients changes the release of testosterone. Studies have also shown that the site of implantation does not affect release.
