Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Provides Help for Traumatic Brain Injury

What Is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Traumatic brain injury occurs when the head collides with something forcefully. This can happen in falls, in violent events like gunshot wounds or physical abuse, in motor vehicle accidents, in contact sports and in military combat. In fact, TBI has been called the signature injury of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Recently, the NFL has received a lot of media attention due to its legal battle in the class-action concussion case.

How Many People Suffer From TBI and What Are the Symptoms?

Traumatic Brain Injury is diagnosed in approximately 1.7 million individuals annually. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most commonly reported traumatic brain injuries are concussions, which are considered mild.

Disorders and symptoms frequently linked with TBI include: cognitive impairments, behavioral and emotional instabilities, and physical symptoms such as headache, dizziness, vision problems, and mobility issues. Issues range from anxiety, depression, mood swings, angry outbursts, memory loss, lack of concentration, learning difficulties, and insomnia, to a higher risk for heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, loss of libido, obesity, diabetes, loss of lean body mass, muscular weakness and others.

What Do Hormones Have to Do With TBI?

Scientists now know that TBI often damages the endocrine system, causing hormone deficiencies. Injury to the hypothalamus, located in the brain, triggers dysfunction of the pituitary gland, which, in turn, disrupts the production of adequate levels of endocrine hormones. From the list of TBI symptoms, it’s easy to see how they correlate with the symptoms of hormone deficiency. A great deal of new research is now directed at TBI and the serious, long term consequences. Some studies have shown that the hypothalamus and pituitary may never completely recover from injury.

SottoPelle® Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients

Most hormone replacement therapies do not provide meaningful improvements or recovery for traumatic brain injury patients. This is primarily because they cannot to deliver hormones around the clock into the blood stream. The hormonal peaks and valleys of many methods do nothing to balance hormones and are typically accompanied by recurring symptoms. That isn’t the way the body is meant to work. When hormone deficiencies are restored to beneficial levels, as they are with SottoPelle® BHRT, significant progress can be made.

Our proprietary SottoPelle® method uses low dose bioidentical hormones that exactly match human hormones. They are slowly released into the blood stream for months at a time. The pellet delivery system we utilize works in a way the body recognizes. Bioidentical hormones bind and communicate perfectly to appropriate receptors within the cells. This is vital to the proper functioning of organs, tissues and cells throughout the entire body.

When properly administered, bioidentical pellet therapy is scientifically proven to be the safest and most effective method of BHRT available. Since TBI patients will need to be on hormone replacement therapy for the rest of their lives, it only makes sense to choose a therapy that supports health rather than putting it at further risk. And because we are leaders in the field of BHRT, SottoPelle® is the perfect choice for treating TBI hormonal deficiencies.

Why Women Prefer SottoPelle® BHRT

Although women use SottoPelle® for many reasons, the primary goal is to relieve perimenopause and post-menopause symptoms. Losing hormones as a woman can strain one’s overall well-being and quality of life. Especially with age, this becomes much more difficult when facing menopause. That’s where SottoPelle® Therapy comes in.
Perimenopause can occur anytime between the ages of 30 and 50 for women. This is due to hormone imbalance. A woman’s ovaries start to function differently at this period in life, which causes the ovaries to produce less estrogen. This change and imbalance often comes with several side effects, including the following:

  • Periods will become less consistent and predictable
  • A woman may begin to gain weight easier
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Irregular mood swings that may lead to depressions
  • Decreased sexual performance
  • And more

Menopause is something that women often dread, and rightfully so. However, the hormone imbalances that ignite this period in life can now be treated with SottoPelle® Therapy.

It is our goal to provide females with a scientifically proven solution. Not only will our natural hormone replacement therapy help a woman age gracefully, but it replenishes hormones in a way that cannot be replicated anywhere else.

Perimenopause and post-menopause come with a wide variety of unappealing side effects. Women not only want to avoid these symptoms with age, but completely restore their estrogen and progesterone levels as well. That is exactly what SottoPelle® Therapy offers.

If you or a loved one are interested in SottoPelle® Therapy for perimenopause or post-menopause relief, contact our doctors today.


Why Hormone Pellets Are the Best Choice for Hormone Replacement Therapy

Pellet hormone replacement therapy has been available and researched for more than 70 years. Since the early 1940s, reports have appeared in a wide range of respected international journals supporting the many benefits of this method. In fact, bioidentical pellet HRT, when properly administered, is scientifically recognized as the safest and most effective hormone replacement method available.
But not all bioidentical pellets or pellet implant methods are the same. We often see patients who have switched to SottoPelle® from other providers because they heard about our special procedure and the effectiveness of SottoPelle® therapy. Time and again they tell us how much better they feel on our pellets as opposed to their previous experience with the pellet implant method.

The Difference Between Other Pellets and Those Used by SottoPelle®
There are at least a couple of good reasons why other pellets don’t work as well. First, many manufacturers use synthetic fillers and binders in their process. These can interfere with the absorption rate and effectiveness of the HRT. Another problem can lie in the manufacturing method used to fuse the hormones into pellet form. This process has a direct relationship to how long the pellet will last and how much hormone gets released. Pellets can either dissolve too quickly or not dissolve properly, prohibiting the consistent, slow release of low doses of hormone needed for hormonal balance.

SottoPelle® is proud to say that the pellets we use are 99.9% pure hormone (bioidentical estradiol or testosterone) plus a human fatty acid (0.1%) to bind them together.

Our Pellet Manufacturer is FDA Regulated and Unsurpassed in Quality
We use one of the finest manufacturing facilities in the industry to make pellets for us. As an FDA-regulated 503B manufacturing site,* it is held to the very highest standards currently set by the FDA. The facility features a state-of-the-art manufacturing environment with advanced equipment, training procedures and testing, in addition to an expert team of well-trained, licensed pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians.

To manufacture hormone pellets, they start with the highest quality, FDA-regulated ingredients available. Using current good manufacturing practices (CGMP) the bioidentical hormones are fused into tiny cylinders. Samples are then sent to independent laboratories for testing. This ensures that the pellets have the proper density, potency, purity, sterility, solubility, rate of disintegration, and temperature tolerance. In fact, the pellets they manufacture consistently meet or exceed industry and regulatory standards for quality and safety.

Their very meticulous manufacturing process combined with our own precision BHRT method are what make SottoPelle® Therapy the reliably effective hormone replacement method it is.

*What is a 503B Manufacturing Site (Outsourcing Facility)?
In November of 2013, President Obama signed into law the Drug Quality and Security Act which sets forth new, more rigorous standards for the pharmacy industry. The bill contained a section known as the Compounding Quality Act. Under the 503B section of this new law, outsourcing facilities must comply with current good manufacturing practices (CGMP), register with the FDA, and comply with reporting and inspection requirements.

Be sure to ask your doctor if their pellets are made in a FDA certified 503B facility. If not, you have to question their quality, effectiveness and safety.
