Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are the only form of testosterone or estrogen hormone replacement therapy considered to be long-term and maintain their effectiveness twenty-four hours a day for several months.
The key to pellet therapy is the use of bioidentical hormones. Unlike synthetic hormones developed in a laboratory, these hormones are chemically structured to be identical to what the body produces. Therefore, the body recognizes the hormones as what it produces itself and uses them directly.
This is crucial, since it means the body’s hormone receptors process bioidentical hormones easily. That, in turn, accelerates the positive effects of treatment and reduces the likelihood of side effects.
Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, which are primarily used in oral and injectable therapies, have several different side effects. Weight gain, mood swings, and general irritation are typical, which is unfortunate because that’s what hormone replacement therapy is supposed to solve.
There are many benefits to hormone pellets, including:
- Increased energy levels
- Improved mental clarity
- Enhanced sexual libido
- Reduced body fat
- Healthy sense of well-being
- Decreased depression/anxiety/mood swings
- Better sleep
- Fewer night sweats/hot flashes
Each pellet is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted into an incision made to the upper hip area during a simple, in-office procedure.
Following insertion, the body slowly begins to metabolize the pellet, releasing a steady, natural dose of hormones—much like the body does under normal function—working harmoniously with the body’s systems prompting optimal response over the course of three to six months. (The duration depends on how quickly the body metabolizes the pellet.)
Pellet therapy is safe, effective, fast and easy!! It also requires very few visits during the year for its application.
It can last up to ten times longer than other methods of hormone delivery. This gives you peace of mind to know that you will get your hormone replacement consistently without having to worry about it.
That consistency is critical. Since each pellet is compounded for a specific person, it releases the ideal amount of hormones consistently.
Unlike other therapies, you don’t have highs and lows, which can lead to mood swings and increased risk of side effects & health issues
