Hormone Pellet Therapy for Depression in Elgin, IL
Both men and women can experience periodic feelings of depression, especially as they reach middle age and encounter a gradual decrease in hormone levels. At this critical time, women begin to experience perimenopause and menopause, and men go through andropause, conditions that can cause hormonal imbalances in the body that can lead to feelings of sadness and depression. However, these imbalances are treatable with hormone pellet therapy.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Depression?
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to combat hormonal imbalance that can lead to depression. According to the federal government, about one in 10 Americans takes an antidepressant. But what if you could balance your hormones naturally? The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy can rebuild the levels of dopamine and feel-good hormones that drop when you are depressed. Because the hormones in this therapy are completely natural, the BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy is ideal for those who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic. The BioTE® method utilizing bio-identical hormone pellet therapy provides a steady dose of hormones that last for three to five months.
Once your hormones are balanced, you may lose weight and sleep better, both of which affect your attitude and your happiness level during the day. Balancing your hormones can also restore your libido and help to eliminate migraines. Remember when you were youthful and how you had a passion for life? You can get back to feeling that way with hormone pellet therapy.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Depression Work?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy contains estrogen and testosterone that are derived from natural sources to replicate the body's normal hormone levels. Implants of these hormones that are placed under the skin consistently release small doses of hormones that have a therapeutic effect.
Unlike typical oral, transdermal and injection forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels that go up and down, 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.
