BHRT or Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps restore hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone to their required levels. The hormones are taken from plant sources to produce molecules which are identical to the hormones our body naturally makes. BHRT is both safe and a reliable, and patients who undergo the treatment often report feeling younger, more energetic and having decreased symptoms of menopause and andropause (male menopause) symptoms. The therapy is customized to an individuals requirements and is highly effective in both men and women.

The many benefits of BHRT include:

  • Improved immune system
  • Increased sex drive
  • Balanced weight
  • Improved skin condition
  • Lower depression
  • A new study also suggests that it helps in Parkinson disease and traumatic brain injury

 

Parkinson’s Disease & BHRT

Parkinsons disease (PD) causes the failure and death of neurons. PD usually strikes the neurons in the brain area called the substantia nigra that produces dopamine. Dopamine is responsible for communicating with the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination in a human body. As PD advances, dopamine production decreases which leaves a person unable to control his/her movements, which often presents as hand tremors. This also inhibits his/her ability to exercise or maintain fitness.

With BHRT, PD patients have reported improvement in the following areas:

  • Reduced progression of PD symptoms
  • Reduced need for medicines
  • An improvement in fitness
  • An improvement in coordination
  • Better mobility
  • Reduction in tremors

These improvements are possible with BHRT because hormone replacement is able to increase the production of dopamine, decrease inflammation in the female brain and testosterone in the main brain. BHRT keeps hormones in balance and revives quality of life for PD patients.

Balanced hormones helps keep negative PD symptoms in check. Also, BHRT is customized to the exact needs of the individual patient. This customization is paramount to the success of pellet therapy. SottoPelle’s patent pending dosing method, BioCalc, allows for the treating physician to dose the pellet therapy to exactly what that patient requires to regain balance.

 

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) & BHRT

Research suggests that traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects around 1.7 million Americans per year and it can cause cognitive, emotional as well as physical deficits. Most therapies do not provide significant improvements or recovery and the chronic symptoms continue to be a part of life of the patients forever. It has been found that brain trauma causes deficiencies in some types of hormones. When this deficiency in hormones is restored, a significant improvement is seen in patients that suffer from TBI.

BHRT are plant-based hormones that match the exact molecular structure, as well as functionality of the human hormones. Hence, BHRT bind and communicate properly to the human body receptors and extend vital support to organs, tissues and cells in the body. If prescribed properly, BHRT can benefit TBI as well as menopause, weight gain, and even osteoporosis. Again, BHRT are customized personally and have virtually no side effects. Exact dosage needs of a patient are uncovered by a series of blood tests.

BHRT needs to be researched upon even more to aid people in their illnesses and improved further to provide an even better outcome for patients suffering from PD and TBI. If you would like more information about this topic or SottoPelle Therapy, visit their website here. The original blog can be found here.
