BHRT Hormone Pellet Therapy Training
The IAPAM, in conjunction with Dr. Gary Adams, are pleased to announce a new turnkey program to offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for your patients. Many patients can benefit from a re-adjustment in their hormone levels as they age, and offering BHRT in conjunction with Clean Start Weight Loss® program and/or anti-aging treatments like Botox® and Fillers are a natural fit. Hormone replacement therapy works for both men and women, and as they age their hormones come out of balance. That is why the IAPAM is now offering BHRT training, which will give you an option to help those patients balance their hormones, and is now available in a program you can quickly and easily add to your practice.
Hormone pellets have been used in Europe and Australia since the 1930’s so there are literally hundreds of studies documenting the benefits of bio-identical hormone therapy.
What is BHRT?
Bio-identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone. The best analogy to differentiate bio identical from synthetic hormones is to look at the hormones and the receptors they activate (hundreds of thousands in our bodies) as a lock and key. The hormone is the key and the receptors they work upon are the locks. Bio-identical hormones fit perfectly in the lock, and unlock all of the beneficial effects of hormones, and when dosed properly, have minimal to no side effects. Synthetic hormones, however, fit in the lock, but do not turn the lock and release many untoward side effects. Dr. Adams says “In my experience, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is the best thing for patients that I’ve seen in almost 30 years of practice as well as the best thing I’ve ever done for my own health.”
Hormone pellets are the only type of hormone replacement therapy that delivers balanced hormones 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for three to five months.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — Hormone Pellet Therapy provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What are Hormone Pellets?
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone used in the pellets.
These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
The comprehensive training program includes didactic sessions taught by world renowned Physicians, Practitioners and authors. Hormone pellet therapy training for doctors comes directly from an experienced team of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy experts.
