What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a revolutionary anti-aging medicine therapy that helps men and women to revitalize their bodies by restoring deficient hormones. As men and women age, the endocrine system, which is composed of several glands in the body that produce hormones, begins to slow down. Hormones are essential to optimal health because they work to regulate numerous functions in the body, which can include reproduction, muscle growth, metabolism, sleep cycles, menstruation, digestion, and blood flow. Without hormones, the human body cannot function and several of the symptoms associated with aging begin to occur.
Unique from other forms of hormone replacement therapy, Bioidentical Hormones are synthesized from yams and are plant-based hormones that can mimic human hormones and be easily accepted into the body. Other forms of hormone replacement therapy use hormones from pregnant animals, and because animal hormones are not identical to human hormones, many patients’ bodies have rejected them and responded with unpleasant side effects.
Bioidentical Hormones can be dosed according to individual needs and imbalances. In the past, other forms of hormone therapy gave each person with an imbalance the same dosage of a hormone. For example, a person with a slight deficiency may have gotten the same dosage as a person with a huge deficiency. Bioidentical Hormone prescriptions can be tailored to suit each person’s unique imbalance.

Getting Started With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Before beginning one of Dr. Brannon’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or anti-aging programs, he will check the levels of essential hormones. Dr. Brannon offers Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy prescriptions in the form of pellets. Young women 18 years or older with premenstrual headaches can be benefitted with very low dose estradiol pellets, which can be used in addition to birth control pills. Women 30 years or older who are experiencing menopausal symptoms are excellent candidates for pellets. People with clotting disorders, history of deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolism’s may get hormone pellets because they are not metabolized by the liver, and therefore, do not affect the clotting factors. Pellets are not recommended for patients who wish to become pregnant within 3-4 months, who are pregnant, have had breast cancer or uterine cancer within the past 5 years, or have abnormal uterine bleeding that has not been evaluated by a physician. Normally pellets are used in women who have had a complete hysterectomy, which means the removal of both the uterus and the ovaries, or women who have experienced menopause naturally. Typically, follow ups are done around four weeks after starting pellets to check the patient’s progress.
