"Hormone imbalance can cause a variety of issues such as diminished sex drive, increased belly fat, foggy concentration, memory lapses, night sweats, hot flashes, depression, and increased mood swings. Sadly, hormonal imbalance can even take away the energy and motivation to do anything about addressing these issues," says Kane Lai, MD of Biovive Medicine.
At Biovive’s new location in Boulder, they will specialize in an effective bioidentical hormone treatment called “Pellet Therapy.” A pellet is a plant-derived hormone that has been compressed into very small pellet-like forms, ranging in size from a grain of rice to a Tic Tac. After receiving a shot of Lidocaine, the pellets are painlessly implanted into the fatty area of the hip. This method of delivery sustains hormone levels evenly over time, with none of the hassles of weekly shots, pills, patches, or creams.
Biovive inserts pellets 2 to 4 times a year depending on how rapidly a patient metabolizes hormones. When compared to the cost of drugs to treat the individual symptoms of hormone decline, pellets are a very cost effective alternative.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is safer than the more common “Traditional” synthetic hormone therapy because bioidentical means that the hormones they use are biochemically identical to what your body naturally produces; in sharp contrast to synthetic hormones that have been linked to numerous negative side effects and decreased efficacy.
In order to diagnose hormonal deficiencies, Biovive offers a $49 consultation that includes a blood test to verify clinical symptoms and clearly reveal deficiencies. After the consultation, Biovive will determine the correct dose of bioidentical hormones needed for Pellet Therapy.
