Hormone Balancing

As the body ages, our hormones stop replenishing themselves. For women, it is common to start seeing signs of Hormone imbalance in your late 30’s to early 40’s as you get closer to menopause. Often symptoms manifest as extreme fatigue, excessive weight gain, loss in muscle mass, hair loss and other issues commonly masked by or attributed to anxiety, depression, insomnia and more. Hormone balancing has the potential to help replenish levels to soften or reverse these symptoms, slow the signs of aging and reduce risk of potential issues in the future. 

Perimenopause and Menopause start as the bodies levels of testosterone, estrogen and progesterone start to deplete. It is a normal and natural part of aging. For many women, low testosterone is a large contributor to the symptoms they are feeling. As in men, testosterone levels in women decrease with age. Over the last decade, countless studies have been published regarding the importance of testosterone in women’s general well being and sexual functioning. While it is important to get these levels checked when approaching menopause, many women could benefit from starting hormone replacement therapy earlier. 

Testosterone pellets are a safe way to balance hormone levels. A small capsule is inserted in the upper-outer quadrant of the hip, and dissolves naturally when the hormone runs out in about 3-4 months. Pellets are affective in treating the symptoms of low libido, anorgasmia, depression, fatigue, muscle mass loss, weight gain, belly fat accumulation, immune system abnormality, autoimmune diseases, dry eyes, mental decline, loss of exercise stamina, loss of motivation, and many other symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Most women start seeing results in 3-4 weeks.

When working with Elle, we encourage patients to talk with us often as they see, or don’t see, changes so we can optimize your pellet dose and get the right hormone balance for your body.

Potential Health Benefits

Nutraceuticals are becoming more and more popular due to their safety, and nutritional and therapeutic effects. They may play a role in a variety of biological processes, such as, antioxidant defenses, cell building, genetic expression, and the safety of mitochondrial DNA.

Peptide Therapy

What Conditions Does Peptide Therapy Address?

Because these peptides are so numerous and variable in structure, their effects are likewise varied and wide-ranging. One class of these peptides are known as growth hormone secretagogues, and cause the secretion of one’s own, natural hGH in the body. These peptides have been shown to be very useful in the treatment of age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, and various chronic inflammatory diseases, and have several advantages over traditional hGH administration.

Another type of peptide drug is composed of part of the hGH molecule that is responsible for fat cell death, and has been shown to be very effective as an anti-obesity drug. In addition to decreasing inflammation, these drugs lead to increased lean muscle mass and decreased body fat.

A certain class of peptide drug has been used to help prevent skin cancer by increasing the melanin in one’s skin, causing a darkening effect that mimics a quality sun tan. This peptide has also been shown to increase lean muscle mass and improve sex drive.

Would You Benefit From Peptide Therapy?
