When most men and women reach their 40s signs of the natural aging process may begin to appear. Unexplained weight gain, hair loss, low libido, inability to concentrate, and mild depression are some of the classic symptoms of hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an effective solution to restoring hormonal balance and reaching your maximum health potential. BHRT is available in a variety of delivery methods, such as pills, patches, creams gels, and injections, however, one method of delivery is a rising star in the industry: pellet therapy.
Hormone pellets are proving to be ranked by patients and physicians as the most efficient, painless, and proven delivery method for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, offering vast benefits for both men and women.
Pellet therapy is a safe and effective BHRT delivery system that can be painlessly administered during a short in-office visit. Pellets are derived from natural sources, such as soy or yam, and custom-compounded to meet each patient’s specific needs. Pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and are carefully inserted through a small incision into the upper-hip area. Once in place, the pellet is slowly metabolized by the body over the course of 3 to 5 months, releasing a steady dose of hormone in much the same manner as the body would under normal function.
The greatest benefit of pellet therapy is the convenience it offers patients. Unlike pills, creams, and injections, there are no daily dosing hassles or risk of side effects from taking too much, too little, or missing a dose. Pellet are inserted during routine office visits every 3 to 5 months, depending on how quickly the body metabolizes the pellet and because the dose is naturally delivered and carefully compounded for each patient’s needs, patients don’t have to worry about spikes and crashes at the beginning of end of each treatment cycle.
Patients report experiencing vast improvements in symptom relief, quality of life factors and overall health with treatment plans that include pellet therapy, including:
