Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is available at Dr. Shel in Sugar Land!

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Sugar Land offers bio-identical hormone therapy (BHT). Alleviate signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance for optimal health and well-being with BHT.

Throughout a person’s life, hormone levels fluctuate, such as in puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and andropause. These hormone imbalances can affect women and men of varying ages and manifest in physical and mental signs.

In order to restore these levels, it is essential first to diagnose the imbalances present and then introduce all-natural bioidentical hormones to replenish and balance the body.

Feeling out of balance? Get back in tune with your body’s natural rhythm with bio-identical hormone therapy.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Sugar Land provides bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women experiencing hormone imbalances that hampers their quality of life.

The benefits of BHT are experienced as a result of restoring our natural sense of well-being.

Supports immune system

Low estrogen levels tend to be related to a poor immune system. Balancing your hormone levels with bio-identical hormone therapy can help improve your immune response.

Reduces inflammation

Restoring the hormone foundation prevents inflammation, which can lead to health concerns and diseases. It also positively affects our brain, heart muscle, bones, and sleep.

Maintains mental and analytical edge

Bio-identical hormones can enhance mental clarity, short-term memory, and cognitive function.

Helps with healthy weight

Bio-identical hormone therapy reduces fat gain by improving the body’s metabolism. It balances hormones that control appetite and fat storage.

Natural libido

Balanced hormone levels can improve libido and sexual performance and help men with erectile dysfunction.

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land Work?

Bioidentical hormones are all-natural and plant-derived. They are extremely safe and effective when prescribed properly because their chemical structure is the same as those made by your body. They have many benefits for one’s overall health.

A hormonal imbalance can cause a variety of health and emotional symptoms. Once bioidentical hormones are introduced into the body, many of these symptoms generally disappear, and patients feel better about themselves.
Is Bio-identical Hormone Therapy for me?
Below are the common symptoms of hormone imbalance. Suppose you have any of the symptoms below, which affect your life quality. In that case, you might need bio-identical hormone therapy from Dr. Shel:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Brain fog
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Low energy
  • Sleep disturbance

You should schedule a hormone health consultation if you experience any of these symptoms.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy: How are they Administered?

Several ways are available to administer bio-identical hormones, including injections, pellets, creams, and troches. Our team of hormone specialists in Sugar Land, TX, works with our patients to determine the best solution for their needs.

Pellets comprise of bio-identical hormones compressed into tiny solid cylinders about the size of a grain of rice. This method eliminates fluctuations that can occur with other delivery methods by providing sustained hormone levels throughout the day, and they last for three to six months. Your body absorbs pellets based on actual needs rather than their time release.

A pellet delivery system mimics the natural release of hormones by the body. It’s easy to use and is virtually painless to insert. Pellets have been used since the 1930s and have more data to support their use than any other method.

Local anesthetic is injected just under the skin between the hip and buttock. A tiny nick is made in the fatty part of the hip, and the pellets are inserted under the skin. The incision is so tiny that there is no need for any sutures.
An injection is usually administered in our office every week, or it can be self-administered by the patient at home if the patient prefers. Generally, injections can lead to a peak right after the shot, followed by a gradual decline towards the end; they have a “roller coaster effect.” For some, the end of their cycle may cause them to feel run down, while for others it doesn’t.
Creams can include several bio-identical hormones and are very customizable. When applied on a regular basis, creams provide a fairly consistent release of hormones. However, you do need to remember to do this every day to maintain consistency.

Accidental transference is the biggest drawback of creams. To prevent unintentional transference, apply the cream to areas of the body that will not come into contact with others and wash your hands properly.
A troche is a small, soft lozenge that dissolves between the cheek and gum within 30 minutes. As they dissolve, hormones are gradually absorbed into the bloodstream. Troches are usually taken once or twice daily.

Reclaim your vitality and feel your best with bio-identical hormone therapy. All-natural bio-identical hormones replace hormones like your body would, so you can experience newfound energy, improved mood, and overall healthy well-being.

What to Expect After Bioidentical Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land?

You will be given a thorough consultation in our Sugar Land clinic regarding your concerns and specific needs. We will carefully review your medical history before the procedure to determine if bio-identical hormone therapy suits your needs.

A preliminary test can be performed via blood, saliva, or both to determine hormone imbalances. This is repeated every 3-6 months, depending on the physician’s recommendation. Dr. Shel formulates a customized treatment plan after receiving results to address specific areas that need improvement.

In both pre and postmenopausal women, hormone replacement therapy will reduce the symptoms associated with menstrual cycles and menopause that can hamper their well-being.

Considering that every patient is unique, it is difficult to say how long it will take them to notice the results. In some cases, patients see remarkable results within a week, while others may need additional time and monitoring.

Common Questions About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are made of plants. Because they are made in the same way as your body, they are extremely safe and effective when prescribed properly, as well as benefit your health in many ways. Hormonal imbalance can directly cause many common health and emotional symptoms. As soon as bioidentical hormones are introduced, many symptoms usually subside, and patients begin to feel like themselves again.

As you age, your hormone production declines. The most common signs of hormone deficiency are hot flashes, night sweats, low sex drive, bone loss, mood changes, and irritability.

Bio-identical hormone therapy is customized to meet the needs of each patient. Hence, results and duration until you can feel results vary per individual. Some patients see results within a few weeks, whereas others take longer.

Restoring hormonal balance with bioidentical hormones has made menopause much easier for many women. Bio-identical hormones can improve sleep quality, reduce or eliminate hot flashes, increase energy levels, and restore sex drive.

Hormone therapy may cause unpleasant side effects like any medical treatment. Bio-identical hormone therapy can improve your health if it is monitored and guided by trained medical professionals. Dr. Shel specializes in bio-identical hormones; she and her team will discuss your needs and goals prior to beginning any treatment.
