SOTTOPELLE® HORMONE REPLACEMENT AND PARKINSONS
Exciting news! Dr. Tutera is seeing great results with early-onset Parkinson’s patients using SottoPelle® hormone replacement therapy. These patients continue to make remarkable strides in a variety of areas.
Parkinson’s patients using SottoPelle® report:
WHY SOTTOPELLE® IS SUCH A GREAT FIT FOR PARKINSON’S PATIENTS
When Parkinson’s disease (PD) strikes, it causes the failure and death of critical nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. Parkinson’s mainly affects neurons in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra. These particular neurons produce dopamine. Dopamine, in turn, communicates with the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination. As PD progresses, dopamine production decreases. This leaves a person unable to control movement in a normal way. And this inhibits the ability to exercise and maintain fitness.
SottoPelle® hormone replacement – specifically testosterone replacement – allows those with Parkinson’s to once again exercise. It gives them the motivation, endurance and stamina to make headway in physical fitness, just as it does in those without the disease. SottoPelle® hormone therapy using estradiol pellets increases dopamine production and decreases inflammation in the female brain, as does the testosterone in the male brain. With these kinds of impacts, it’s no wonder patients often tell us that our BHRT restores their quality of life.
Many people prefer SottoPelle® because it keeps hormone levels in balance. They don’t experience the rollercoaster ups and downs as with other methods. Instead, there is a steady flow of needed hormones in the blood stream around the clock for months at a time. Likewise, SottoPelle® alleviates the worry of side effects and accidental exposure to others.
PARKINSON’S IMPROVES WITH SOTTOPELLE® TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT
Parkinson’s patients using SottoPelle® experience significant improvements in their conditions. Our BHRT isn’t a cure-all for the disease, but it can forestall the disease’s progression. This helps patients become more functional with less medication.
Rick James is a case in point. He is making noteworthy progress with his early-onset Parkinson’s due to SottoPelle®. He first visited Dr. Tutera in late summer of 2012. As an active participant in the Baehr Challenge for Parkinson’s Research, Rick saw firsthand the healing power of exercise. The possibilities of improving muscle mass and strength, of boosting his energy levels, and increasing his motivation and drive were what drew Rick to SottoPelle®. He felt our BHRT had more benefits and advantages than other methods. Rick remains excited about what it may do for him in the long run.
