They are chemical messengers that move through the body directing various internal functions of cells and organs. As we go through life, hormone levels can change, which in turn alters these vital systems in the body.

Why Imbalance Matters

Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences for well-being. Hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause and andropause are tied to variety of conditions. Research points to a tie between the hormone imbalance in perimenopause, menopause, and andropause and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction and other age-related disorders.

Other symptoms of hormone imbalance or depletion are not as serious, though very impactful on day to day living. Many mistake hormone imbalance as a normal sign of aging, when in fact the imbalance can be remedied.

Treating Hormone Imbalance

Many different treatment options exist for hormone imbalances in men and women—pills, patches, creams and injections, to name a few.

At Dr. Saunders’ office, we use hormone pellet therapy. We prefer pellet therapy over other options because the pellets have the same molecular structure as human hormones, they last longer than other treatments, and they have been the subject of the most study when it comes to natural hormone therapy.

Hormone pellet therapy provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood, at an individualized dosage. The pellet is inserted under the skin. The results are excellent and side effects are minimal. At our office we use bioTE.[/fusion_text][fusion_button link=”https://www.vitadox.com/american-fork/ut/84003/dr-mark-saunders-obgyn.html?_ga=1.174555810.1866025768.1438034658″ color=”default” size=”” stretch=”default” type=”” shape=”” target=”_self” title=”” gradient_colors=”|” gradient_hover_colors=”|” accent_color=”” accent_hover_color=”” bevel_color=”” border_width=”1px” icon=”” icon_position=”left” icon_divider=”yes” modal=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” alignment=”left” class=”” id=””]Learn More[/fusion_button][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
