Improving Neuromuscular Function with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
How Parkinson’s changes the body:
When Parkinson’s disease (PD) strikes, it causes the failure and death oaf critical nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. Parkinson’s mainly affects neurons in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra. These particular neurons produce dopamine. Dopamine, in turn, communicates with the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination. As PD progresses, dopamine production decreases. This leaves a person unable to control movement in a normal way and this inhibits the ability to exercise and maintain fitness.
Improving Parkinson’s symptoms with hormone replacement.
SottoPelle® hormone replacement – specifically testosterone replacement – aids those with Parkinson’s to exercise. It gives them the motivation, endurance and stamina to make headway in physical fitness, just as it does in those without the disease. SottoPelle® hormone therapy using estradiol pellets increases dopamine production and decreases inflammation in the female brain, as does the testosterone in the male brain.
Parkinson’s patients using SottoPelle® can experience significant improvements in their conditions. Our BHRT isn’t a cure for the disease, but our patients report it helps them manage their symptoms. This enables patients to become more functional with less medication.
Patients often tell us that our BHRT restores their quality of life. Patients prefer SottoPelle® because they don’t experience the roller-coaster ups and downs as with cream and pill hormone based therapies.
