Optimize Your Health in Wentzville, Lake St. Louis and their Surrounding Areas
Ultra Wellness Medical offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT as part of our healthcare services. Our team serves clients from O’Fallon, Lake St. Louis, Wentzville, and Chesterfield. As we age, hormone levels begin to naturally drop, but for some, this process can occur more quickly.
Since prehistoric times, our life expectancy has increased from early 30’s to now over age 75. Maintaining optimized hormone levels can be key in helping to fight the effects of aging. Medications, stress, and environmental factors can also contribute to hormone imbalances as we age.
Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance
Hormone imbalances can occur when there is an abnormality in the production, release, or regulation of hormones in the body. The symptoms of hormone imbalances can vary depending on the specific hormone involved.
Here are some common symptoms associated with hormone imbalances:
- Loss of libido
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Muscle weakness, aches and pains
- Mood Changes
- Hair loss
- Stubborn Belly Fat
- Brain Fog
- Sleep problems
- Weight gain
- Difficulty maintaining muscle mass
Dr. Michael Williams, D.O. is a BioTE Certified Provider, using bioidentical pellet therapy for hormone optimization. This customized treatment allows for a steady release of hormones directly into your bloodstream, producing more stable levels month to month as opposed to large spikes with each dose.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
We first review your medical history and order specific blood tests to have a clear evaluation of your hormonal needs. Based on your symptoms and specific lab numbers, we create your custom pellets to optimize your hormone levels and improve symptoms associated with low levels. Our team handles lab testing through Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp.
During a treatment appointment, a predetermined number of pellets about the size of a grain of rice are inserted beneath your skin. This is a quick procedure which only requires a very small incision and takes minutes to perform. The bioidentical pellets gradually release hormones over months as your body absorbs them into the bloodstream.
Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Health Benefits
Hormone pellets use plant-based hormones that are identical to those your body naturally produces. Your body absorbs the hormones from the pellets more effectively than from oral or topical forms of BHRT.
Bioidentical pellet benefits include:
- Improved bone density and muscle mass
- Healthier cardiovascular system
- Less brain fatigue
- Higher energy levels
- Improved sex drive
- Improved mood
- Diminished migraine headaches
Many clients experience improvement in weeks. Dr. Williams will determine what maintenance schedule you need to enjoy continuous results. Men usually need pelleted every six months, and women every three or four months.
