Tampa Specialist Details Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt describes common symptoms caused by hormone imbalance and discusses how bio-identical pellet therapy offers a simple, non-synthetic treatment method.
Tampa, FL—Common indicators of hormone imbalance are often dismissed as the result of overwork or stress, explains specialist and Medical Director of Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt. However, he says symptoms such as sleeplessness, irritability, and headaches actually may be due to decreasing levels of estrogen, testosterone, and other hormones. Though typically related to the natural process of aging, he notes that hormone fluctuations can occur in individuals as young as 30. Fortunately, he indicates that Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy, an all-natural treatment method, can prove beneficial for patients experiencing these and other unwanted effects.
To help individuals who are wondering if they may be experiencing effects caused by decreasing hormone levels, Dr. Hunt recently detailed some of the prevailing symptoms associated with this condition, stating that being able to recognize the signs of a hormone imbalance can encourage patients to seek treatment. Common indicators may include:
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Decreased sexual desire
- Memory loss
Dr. Hunt says that some indicators may seem like the consequence of strain or exhaustion, but professional examination may reveal these effects to be the result of hormone imbalance. In addition to causing discomfort, he also notes that these symptoms can also negatively impact both personal and professional relationships, and he advises individuals who think they may have a hormone imbalance to seek a consultation with a board-certified physician.
At his practice, Dr. Hunt says Joy Drexler, a registered nurse with expertise in BHRT, performs the treatment, which can be an excellent method for many patients experiencing hormone fluctuations. Derived from non-synthetic plant sources and designed to mimic naturally produced hormones, the benefits of Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy potentially include increased libido, mental clarity, sleep patterns, and energy, as well as reduced fatigue, body fat, irritability, depression, and mood swings. Unlike complicated regimens with pills or topical treatments, the Tampa specialist says Hormone Pellet Therapy utilizes small, sub-dermal pellets to safely deliver a balanced infusion of hormones to the body, helping to stabilize chemical levels.
Ultimately, Dr. Hunt says he hopes to improve patient wellbeing by bringing attention to the effects of hormone imbalance and offering an effective, all-natural treatment method. By providing a helpful resource, he believes more individuals will be able to recognize the signs and seek assistance from a qualified physician.
