Balanced hormones are necessary for good health and well being as we age. Hormone pellets are the newest and best way to deliver hormones in both men and women. Tiny implants, the size of a grain of rice, are placed under the skin, and consistently release small, physiologic doses of bioidentical hormones providing optimal therapy for up to 6 months. The pellets are made of either estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone and are derived from natural plant sources. If you suffer from a hormonal imbalance and need help managing your symptoms, hormone pellet therapy can help.

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellets avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with other methods of delivery. It is the fluctuation in hormones that causes many of the unwanted side effects and symptoms that patients experience.

After pellets are inserted, patients notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density increase while fatty tissue decreases. Patients notice increased strength. They also see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory all improve as does overall physical and sexual health.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy using the pellet method has changed the manner in which women age. In the past, menopause was just another stage of life to be endured and lived with. Today, we know we don't have to accept hormonal imbalance as a grim reality.

Natural hormone replacement has helped in improving the quality of women's lives. Some doctors still say women should stop whining and accept menopause, but why should they when a remedy as simple as replacing missing hormones exists!

Men start losing testosterone as early as the age of 30. Current medical research shows that men also experience an equivalent of menopause called andropause.

Until now the hormonal needs of men had few options. Now with pellet therapy this has changed. Pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone replacement that gives sustained and consistent levels of testosterone throughout the day for up to 6 months.

The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done in the office with local freezing of the affected area.

It's amazing something so small can make such a big difference! Give us a call today.
