Hormone Pellet Therapy for Insomnia in Elgin, IL
Hormone imbalance resulting from perimenopause, menopause or andropause may cause insomnia, which creates a vicious circle that worsens the original hormone imbalance. Insomnia can be compounded by other causes, including:
- Chronic stress
- Adrenal fatigue
- Poor dietary habits
Insomnia worsens the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause and andropause because the body needs sleep for hormones to work properly. Sleep is essential to the body's repair mechanisms, and poor quality of sleep can predispose people to accelerated aging and morbidity by contributing to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Insomnia can become a chronic sleep problem the longer it goes untreated.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy for Insomnia?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy is a treatment designed to combat hormonal imbalance, which is a contributing factor to insomnia and sleep management issues. Hormone pellet therapy can help to resolve hormonal fluctuations that can interrupt sleep and cause long-term sleep problems. Waning hormone levels may make you more susceptible to environmental and other factors and stressors that disrupt sleep.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy for Insomnia Work?
The BioTE® method using hormone pellet therapy contains estrogen and testosterone that are derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body's optimal hormone levels. Estrogen is a sleep-maintaining hormone, and it's common to have an estrogen deficiency in perimenopause and menopause when the body is not producing enough natural estrogen. A woman's ability to get a full night's sleep suffers as a result. A drop in testosterone can also be an issue for women because testosterone is linked with snoring and sleep apnea.
With hormone pellet therapy, pellets containing these hormones are placed under the skin, and they consistently release small doses of hormones that have a therapeutic effect. The BioTE® method utilizing bio-identical hormone pellet therapy provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months. Restoring these important hormone levels can lead to better sleep quality and restorative rest that improves physical and mental well-being.
