Restore your youth and vitality with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

HORMONE THERAPY FOR MEN & WOMEN

Bioidentical Hormones In Lexington, SC

At Cardinal Wellness and Aesthetics we offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for patients in the Midlands. For men and women facing the pains of andropause or menopause, hormone therapy offers a way to diminish the discomforts and reclaim the vibrancy of youth. Menopause (known as andropause in men) is generally caused by a decrease in hormones, whether testosterone or estrogen, so replenishing these hormones is the primary goal of hormone therapy. More importantly, hormone therapy helps men and women reduce the risks of many of the diseases associated with aging, including cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke and senility.
The 2016 International Menopause Society recommendations on women’s midlife health and menopause clearly states that the role of menopausal hormone therapy not only alleviates troublesome menopausal symptoms but also helps in the prevention of diseases of aging.

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical Hormones In Lexington, SC

WHAT ARE PELLETS?
Sterile pellets are a small, cylindrical form of compounded medication prepared using bioidentical hormones. They are used to treat hormone deficiencies and imbalances in both men and women. The pellet is only about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted below the skin in the gluteal or abdominal area during a simple office procedure. The area is numbed using a local anesthetic and a tiny incision is made through which the pellet is inserted using a trocar. Once it is in place, a sterile strip is used to close the incision and covered with an adhesive bandage. Over the course of three to four months, the pellet slowly dissolves as the body draws small, physiologic dosages of the hormone to maintain a more consistent delivery. Once it is dissolved, the procedure is repeated and a new pellet is inserted.

What are Pellets used for?

Pellets have been used as a safe, effective way to provide the body with hormones necessary for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. The doctor may prescribe sterile pellets for both men and women experiencing menopause or andropause, and with conditions such as:

WHY USE PELLETS?

One of the benefits of pellets is that pellets can be used to deliver hormones to the body that are both structurally and biologically identical to the body’s own hormones. Bioidentical hormones such as estradiol (E2) and testosterone are the most commonly used ingredients. They are slowly released over a period of three to four months, allowing for consistent delivery. Because the pellet is placed beneath the skin, once it is inserted, the body naturally does the rest. Patients do not have to remember to take a pill, apply a cream, or give an injection. Patients also do not have to worry about getting the pellet removed because it is safely dissolved by the body over time. Once it is dissolved, the next pellet can be inserted by the physician.

“Dr. Martin and staff care like family and at the same time are knowledgeable and at the forefront of wellness care. I came to him for fatigue and wanting to live longer. He has guided me and his staff have supported me toward teaching the goal of good energy, good sleep, better eating habits, balancing me through supplements, and most importantly, teaching me about what and why.”
– Mary C.
“It was good to feel good again! After almost a year of decreased energy, weight gain, and an overall sense of sadness, the hormone therapy Dr. Martin prescribed for me brought me back to feeling normal again. I saw results from workouts and yoga I had not seen in a long time! After only a month or so of hormone therapy, I started sleeping normally again, without waking up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep. My downward spiral stopped and then reversed itself, and the scary path of aging did not seem quite so frightening. Dr. Martin spends quality, unrushed time with me explaining the science behind these treatments. He also provides tons of practical information about nutrition, exercise, and rest. Thank you, Dr. Hank! I am so lucky to have you and your wonderful practice in my life!””
– Rochelle C.
“I had the privilege of shadowing with Dr. Hank a few months ago. It was wonderful to see a doctor take the time to talk to patients and provide a holistic approach to age management, hormonal therapy, & genetic testing. The entire staff at Cardinal is helpful & friendly and the office is beautiful!”

“My wife and I met with Dr. Martin and Monica back in June 2021. Dr. Martin spoke with us about the health benefits from proper diet and exercise. We decided to follow his advice and the results are amazing. When I started seeing him I weighed 193 lbs and was on two blood pressure meds and a statin to control cholesterol. After about two months I am down to 173 (my wife lost 20lbs as well) and have dropped one blood pressure med and the statin. Also he was able to get my testosterone levels up to where it needs to be. He showed us a whole new world as far as diet. This is a way of eating that we can stick with and maintain our weight and fitness goals. Dr. Martin and staff are very personable and knowledgeable on how to live a healthy lifestyle. He and Monica truly care about our health. The appointments are never rushed and all questions are answered.”
– Joe R.

Most all physicians are taught how to treat illnesses and manage diseases. What makes Dr. Martin so unique is his sincere focus on prevention of disease, maximizing quality of life and maintaining functionality especially as one ages. His genuine positive, enthusiastic and likable personality, his decades of experience combined with a vast in-depth knowledge base integrated with the most up-to-date medical break-throughs and treatment modalities makes him a rare commodity in today’s healthcare market.”

“What a difference a year makes! A year ago in April I was blessed to learn that our family doctor of many years was beginning a new practice focusing on wellness and age management. I had no idea what a difference I would see in my over all health and wellbeing after beginning Hormone Replacement Therapy as well as personalized instruction in nutrition and exercise. The positive difference physically, mentally and emotionally is incredible. I had heard that HRT was the fountain of youth and I can now testify to that. I feel better, have more energy and know that the steps I am taking through Dr. Martin’s instruction has been and will continue to be life changing for me. Dr. Martin truly cares about my health and takes time to answer all my questions patiently and thoroughly which in this day and age is rare. He is truly a blessing to not only me but my husband as well and we are so grateful to have him by our side through this season in our lives.”
