The Importance of Estrogen
Women commonly have a low risk for cardiovascular disease until Menopause, around age 50, when their estrogen levels plummet and the ratio of estradiol to estrone goes haywire. Menopause and estrogen imbalance are also associated with osteoporosis, breast cancer, and other serious health issues.
Research indicates that, besides heart and artery protection, estrogen protects against cognitive decline during aging and perhaps even against Alzheimer’s disease. The most common reason as to why women are at higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s is their reduced estrogen production after Menopause. It’s likewise important to note that, on the reverse side, epidemiological research has linked hormone replacement with a decline in the risk of developing this serious disease.
What is Menopause?
Menopause is the end of the female reproductive cycle and is commonly diagnosed when a woman has not had her period for 12 months. The average age for the onset of Menopause is 51 but can also happen in as early as your late 30’s. The precise method of determining if a woman is in Menopause is to measure the amount of follicle stimulating hormone levels in the blood. Leading up to Menopause, the ovaries produce fewer hormones, which cause a variety of changes in a woman’s body.
Surgical removal of the ovaries and other medical conditions and treatments can also induce Menopause. The fluctuations in the hormones estrogen, testosterone and progesterone can cause your periods to become irregular and sometimes heavy. Other symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, brain fog, and headaches can soon follow.

Why Use Bio-Identical Hormones?
Remaining healthy into old age depends on many things including lifestyle and genetics. It also makes perfect sense to replenish what the body needs. That’s why we supplement vitamins and minerals. It’s also why we use HRT to restore internal balance. Many physicians focus on simply relieving symptoms with pharmaceutical pills, patches, injections or creams. However, in order to return the body to balance, it needs recognizable hormone substances and a precision delivery method to transport them through the bloodstream around the clock. By far the safest, most effective and convenient method, properly administered bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT) using pellet implants can restore the beneficial hormone levels your body needs. Pellet implants consist of low dose estradiol and testosterone that release slowly for 3 to 6 months, 24/7. It is the only BHRT method that can release more hormone when the body needs it.
After decades of treating women (and men) with this method, we’ve witnessed firsthand the life-changing impact pellet implant therapy has had on thousands of patients—whether it helped reverse serious osteoporosis, aided a Parkinson’s patient to make strides in mobility, or simply helped revive a marriage. Many say they’ve been given back what they thought they’d lost forever —their quality of life. 68 percent of the 44 million people currently at risk for osteoporosis are women
