Dr. Paul Kosmorsky, a Bucks County family practitioner for 22 years, recently established Hormonal Wellness Solutions in Yardley. This practice uses BioTE®, hormone replacement pellet therapy to help patients restore their hormonal balance, improving their quality of life as they age. According to Dr. Kosmorsky, BioTE® has been a revelation to the way he treats patients.
“For the longest time, patients would come to me with symptoms such as depression, fatigue and insomnia, and I couldn’t always identify why they felt the way they did. I felt ineffective because I couldn’t help everyone who came to me for help.”
However, when Dr. Kosmorsky discovered BioTE® he realized that a lot of symptoms described by both his female and male patients were actually hormonal. Therefore at Hormonal Wellness Solutions, instead of simply treating patients’ symptoms, he treats the cause if he determines that these patients have low estrogen or testosterone levels.
Dr. Kosmorsky, along with Angela Chen, a certified nurse practitioner also trained to administer BioTE®, will initially take your blood work to measure your hormonal levels. Based on those levels, in addition to one’s weight, physical activity, clinical history and symptoms, they will create a custom pellet dose for each patient.
“The tiny pellets are implanted under the skin in the fatty tissue of the lower lumbar area,” describes Chad Frable, Physician Liaison for BioTE®. “The actual procedure takes less than five minutes with minimal discomfort.”
BioTE is a safe, effective way to restore your hormone balance, relieving a variety of symptoms. Both men and women may experience greater mental clarity, increased libido, decreased body fat, increased muscle tone and mass, enhanced energy, less fatigue, as well as decreased depression, irritability and mood swings.
A significant advantage of pellet therapy is that it uses plant based, bio-identical, all natural estrogen and testosterone without the side effects of synthetic drugs.
“By using bio-identical hormones, we are replacing hormones that are normally produced by the body with hormones that are biologically identical in chemical structure and function,” explains Dr. Kosmorsky. “Only hormones that exactly match those produced by the body will have the same effects.”
Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own, which significantly reduces the chance of adverse side effects. As opposed to oral hormone replacement therapy that is absorbed in the liver and often associated with liver toxicity, these pellets are absorbed directly into the circulatory system. This enables your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet based on your level of activity.
Pellet therapy delivers a consistent level of hormones for months at a time, outperforming oral, patch and cream prescriptions. This therapy has been used successfully in this country since 1939, and continues to be the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy in Australia and England.
You can start feeling the positive effects as early as a week, and on average, in about two weeks.
Mary, 56, from Lower Makefield, felt sluggish and fatigued all the time despite exercising routinely.
“I felt like a haggard old lady,” says Mary. “A week after receiving this hormone replacement pellet therapy, I had more energy and felt like doing more. I felt better about myself as a result.”
Dr. Kosmorsky offers his own testimonial of BioTE®, as he has received it himself.
“Within 10 days of receiving this pellet implant, I felt more energetic. Now I’m a 53-year-old who has the energy of a 20-year- old.”
Today Dr. Kosmorsky feels “rejuvenated,” knowing he can help so many of his patients feel better. “It truly will change your life.”
Dr. Kosmorsky will hold a patient education seminar on hormone replacement pellet therapy on March 12th at 7:00pm at Hormonal Wellness Solutions, located at 303 Floral Vale Boulevard, Lower Level, in Yardley.
