Solutions Wellness – Nashville Bioidentical Hormones
For many years, the stress of everyday living has been blamed for the health problems that people face as they get older. Symptoms including headaches, hot flashes, osteoporosis, and loss of libido are common ailments in people as young as 35, but clinical research has connected these symptoms to hormone imbalances. The good news is that these imbalances can be adjusted through hormone replacement therapy.
As we age, the human body produces less testosterone and estrogen. These essential hormones provided the energy for both men and women when they were younger. But as the human body produces less of these hormones, the result can impact a person’s health and reduce their quality of life.
Are you ready to get your life back?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is an individualized treatment that is prescribed to restore a patient’s balance of hormones.
Restoring Vitality, Energy and Reversing the Aging Process
In recent years, hormone replacement therapy has become a viable option for people who want to address the common symptoms of aging. Perhaps you have heard your friends talk about it, or you’ve seen it on TV. Whatever that case, it is real. Bio-Equivalent Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is an individualized treatment that is prescribed to restore a patient’s balance of hormones.
Negative Effects of Hormone Imbalances
Hormone imbalances can affect the daily lifestyles of men and women. Low or unbalanced levels of your important hormones can cause the following:
- Sleepless nights
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Loss of energy and mental clarity
- Loss of libido and sexual performance
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Increased belly fat
Why it’s important
Estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone all play critical roles in your health. We have found by balancing these hormones, in a safe, physiologic manner; we can have a significant impact on a patient’s daily life. Additionally, we find balancing hormones is often indicated for the long-term success of our weight management patients.
Data supports that hormone therapy with pellet implants is an effective and safe method to deliver hormones in both men and women. Implants, placed painlessly under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones typically for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. They are designed to avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery; creams, patches, gels and oral tablets. Pellets have not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional oral hormone replacement therapy or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
Even patients who have failed other types of hormone therapy can have a very high success rate with pellets. We have found there is no other method of hormone delivery that is as convenient for the patient as the pellet implants. Pellets have been used in both men and women since the late 1930’s. There is significant data in support of the use of pellets as an effective method of delivery of hormones.
Bring out the beauty!
In its total patient care discipline, we at Solutions Wellness are finding hormone therapy to be helpful for weight control, as it improves metabolism and creates lean muscle mass. We find that hormone therapy counteracts menopausal skin symptoms like dryness and wrinkles.
In both men and women, one particular hormone, testosterone, has been shown to increase energy, relieve depression, reduce anxiety, improve memory, restore concentration, and provide a more restful sleep. Hormone therapy is helpful for weight control, as it improves metabolism and creates lean muscle mass.
Testosterone, delivered by pellet implant, has shown results in increasing lean body mass (muscle strength, bone density) and decreases fat mass in many research studies. Men and women need adequate levels of testosterone for optimal mental and physical health and for the prevention of chronic illnesses like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and fibromyalgia, which are associated with low testosterone levels.

The goal of any treatment is simple: to restore and balance one’s hormones through a safe and proven method of treatment.
